The New Year

As I've been working on healing my body without the prop of the most toxic of the medications that I've had to take in the past, a number of insights around the source of my illness have come to mind.

An interesting approach to healing

Hi y'all,

I did a basic workshop this past weekend that seems to have potential. It was called "Journey Intensive" and is based on Brandon Bays' "Journey Work". It's interesting stuff and the healing tools seem to me to be quite powerful. The key piece for me is that there is an interest in forming a healing community at a depth that can handle emotional and sexual trauma. This community is starting to form in the town where I live and is already established in many communities in North America and the UK.

Snuggles! :-)

Hello,

I came across a really interesting news article on Yahoo! Quebec (they tend to have stuff that is related to sexuality and intimate relations more often than the English sites do!).

It was about a new service available near Rochester New York: a woman is offering non-sexual cuddles at $60/hour. I've asked her if she has a package deal for people who need three weeks of sleeping together (no sex) or if she knows of other healing centres that do offer this kind of service. I'm curious to hear what she'll say.

Check out her website:

Men for Love

The last few months have been intriguing (and challenging) for me. I head butted with the local car insurance corporation around a small claim and saw that their interest in cooperation and mutual support is zero. I also struggled with a friend who seemed to share the same head centred/patriarchal/power over others attitude.

Triangles

A very common pattern in my life is to get caught up in the politics of other couples and feeling beat up rather intensely as I struggle to get some distance from the woman (and calm the man's fears). I think it's related to the ease with which I can connect with women at their level (Head/ Heart) and the difficulties I have connecting with most men. It also has connections to the very poor foundation I had in being mothered in very early youth. I seem to be unconsciously trying to correct it.

Me and My Anger

The last week has been a pretty intense journey through anger for me. I decided to hibernate all weekend because of it. I think it was triggered by a couple of very positive events that left me longing for more. It eventually morphed into a generalized hatred of all people. When I was sane enough to see if I could identify my needs they were related to protection from violence and basic support for survival needs.
