Deep ecology teaches us that there is no preference for one life form over another.
When we take a close look at the complex intelligent ecological systems that have developed on Earth over billions of years we can observe a powerful primal, yet playful energy as a driving force behind all forms of life. This life force developed from the most basic forms into the most sophisticated biodiverse networks we can observe today. Showing incredible resilience in the most harsh situations and endless creativity to adapt to constantly changing circumstances. Carrying deep wisdom to bring us home to our essence and simultaneously showing us that all we have to do is surrender and tap into the life energy within, connecting us to something much bigger than us.
They all contribute to the bigger organism and will return to the soil at some point in time when they’ve served their purpose. And exactly this holistic mentality is what the world needs to restore the balance that has been disturbed: all life has the same value. We can identify the patterns in which nature is trying to show us her wisdom and mimic them to realign ourselves.
In essence, this creative life energy is the same force as the sexual energy that we all carry in our bodies. The energy that created us, through the connection between our parents. The more we learn how to tap into this creative force within us, the more we will be empowered to live our full potential, in deep connection with ourselves, others and our surroundings.
The core of the practice around deep ecology and sexuality is our connection to the life force. Everybody has their own way of connecting to life energy, the only way to find out what is yours is to fully immerse in the space we create together and trust that your body will guide you.
We will be working on the embodiment of how to relate in authentic ways with ourselves and our environment in a setting that you probably don’t have in everyday life. During these sessions we will immerse ourselves in nature in an isolated spot in the forest to be sure we can create our own bubble where we can allow sensations and emotions to flow freely. Through breathwork and meditation we lay the fundamentals to connect to the life energy within, before we dive into the rhythm of nature. Then we start exploring the magic of physical touch by the elements that are all in and around us. We slow down to feel them, touch our skin, and take time to feel how our body reacts. This could be pleasure, discomfort, excitement, not knowing what to do or maybe a feeling of coming home, we embrace all that wants to come. The more skin available, the more sensations we can feel, the more we can connect. Step by step we navigate into deeper layers of ourselves and the natural world. Maybe you feel like being gentle and tender and keeping your clothes on. But you might also find yourself taking off layer after layer or even without any layers to invite the elements to make love with your body in a sexy and juicy way. No expectations, just invitations to listen to your body and make use of this moment we create together to explore new sides of ourselves in connection with the forest.
