Tantra and tattoo

Tantra and tattoo

Last night had a beautiful time at the all-women tantra workshop. Lots of liberating dancing, relaxation, wonderful sharing of pain and transformation, massage and supper at the end.

So wonderful to have the opportunity to do this, to learn how to just be, to exchange deep thoughts and feelings, to embrace mutual acceptance, to celebrate each other. We all have so much growing to do and everyday life just doesn’t afford us the opportunity to really immerse ourselves in this kind of sharing. I feel very lucky and I can feel how much I grow from these experiences.

Today I finally had the tattoo I wanted for so long. It was probably the most excruciatingly painful experience I ever had and that is saying something. Now the skin healing can begin. The wolf-fox looks strong and magnificent!! I’m proud, and relieved, and delirious! Hahaha.

Well, another great new sci-fi film: Moon, directed by Duncan Jones (who happens to be David Bowie’s son!).

Moon has such a controlled scope and a beautiful psychological drama as its backbone. From the simple premise grows a story with a surprising depth providing commentary on consciousness, death and capitalism! Watch the trailer then go and see it πŸ™‚

Today I got the H1N1 vaccination, yay! I’ve been looking forward to this, even though it has made me quite tired and a bit sick.. but that’s ok, I’m just watching some shows at home on my computer πŸ™‚ True Blood is particularly entertaining.

What’s up with me? Been doing lots and planning more πŸ™‚

Got back to teaching face-to-face and online while also doing some curriculum development for Macquarie University. Been doing film nights and dinners with friends, had an afternoon of painting at Ange’s (photo!). I have no idea how to paint but had some interesting ideas and spent an afternoon experimenting and trying to put them on canvass.

What’s in the bag: more film nights and dinners, getting back to bridge and yoga, tantric night, game night, Lush party, poly discussion, Halloween, hoping to get another camera and a tattoo. Also planning some ‘porn and brownie’ nights and maybe even some cherry picking if I find someone to come to Young with me! πŸ˜›

sense of yourself

sense of yourself

I think I have just stopped feeling sorry for myself.. about being sick, about where my life is going. I’m enjoying being single, grabbing new opportunities of all kinds and expanding. I’m also meditating heaps and becoming a kinder person to myself πŸ™‚

If you are in doubt, have a look around at all the wonderful things life gives you and give yourself some loving kindness!

And if you thought you were unlucky or had to feel sorry for yourself, have a look at this amazing woman who’s the first pilot without arms.. not having arms certainly hasn’t stopped her in getting a psychology degree, holding down jobs and even flying.

Now go and give yourself some love for all the things that you are and start looking forward towards all the things that you can still be πŸ™‚
