My studies into sexual energy cultivation began in my mid 40’s when I experienced for the 1st time in my life was commonly called today, erectile dysfunction. I was at that time married, in the final stages of my 20 year professional dance career, and had no idea at the time what was going on with my body. I only knew that I had a tremendous feeling of fear and at that time there was no internet that existed where I could search for answers. Back then the closest thing to an information source was the Yellow Pages phone book, and at the most related health care profession with reproductive system was the Urologist. I made appointments with 2 different ones and to my shock they both told me that my drop in sexual potency was a normal and eventual phenomenon of aging. I could not believe my ears. If this were true, I considered, for the very first my life, without my sexual power, was not worth living. I turned to an alternative book store in New York City, where I was living, called the East West bookstore and came across a book entitled, The Tao of Health, Sex, and Longevity by Danial P. Reid.
In my college days at Fairfield University, a Jesuit college in Connecticut, I had studied for one semester theology and became very interested in Taoism but not once had I ever read about Taoism being connected to Sex. But here I was, for the first time in my life, in a crises with my body that was affecting my health, my sexuality, and an overwhelming fear that my life was in danger. It was through this book that my life was transformed and that I was led to knowledge and information, that even to this day, very few know about. After applying many of the practices in this book as well beginning my studies and training with Master Mantak Chia, I was able to recover my sexual power back and had an entirely different relationship with my sexuality, .
In 1995, soon after retiring from my dance career, I became and instructor in the Universal Tao system and created Sexy Spirits in New York City with the mission of informing and teaching others what I had learned so that they too would have a path back to sexual health and vitality.
Mastering one’s sexual energy is so needed, especially today, where our culture regards sexuality as a recreational activity for pleasure with no comprehension or awareness how our sexual energy organizes our entire mental, emotional, and physical, functionality toward the goal of procreation.
To master one’s sexual energy it to bring together all the parts of ourselves into an integrated whole as we engage in sexual activity. This training not only focuses on the practical aspects of the Taoist teachings of health, sex, and longevity, but also on the emotional, social, and spiritual underpinnings that provide the a foundation for how we can consciously evolve as a sexual being.
I want to pay special tribute to Master Mantak Chia who brought to the western world the ancient Taoist teachings that today guide my life, and to Bert Hellinger, creator of Family Constellations, that provide me with insights of how love works in our relationships.
