Have you ever considered your genitals to be beautiful? Then again, can you look at your partner’s genitals and see beauty in much the same way as you might see beauty when you look in their eyes? Were you taught that genitals were ‘dirty’? Were you told not to touch your genitals because it is ‘disgusting’? By opening yourself to the beauty of genitals, you can integrate your whole body, mind and soul rather than segregating yourself into separate and divided entities called ‘sexual parts’ and ‘non-sexual parts’. We all have body feelings originating from memories ‘stored’ in the genitals.
Did you realise that your relationship provides you with the power to have, or achieve, anything you truly desire? I repeat: your relationship invests you with the power to have, or achieve, anything you truly desire. Not many couples discover this extraordinary power, which is decreed by Universal Law. Of course, this astonishing power is not to be the primary reason for having an intimate relationship; the motivation for a relationship should be that of love. Having established a foundation of love, however, you are then sharing the privilege of royalty: to have anything you truly desire. I can make
The human body is an amazing, mysterious structure drawn out of forces from the cosmos over unimaginable periods of space-time. No known feat of engineering could manufacture the elbow or the ankle to the same degree of perfection as human bone structure. No textile, however fine and precious, could replicate human skin. No computer expert could build a machine to replace or even rival the human head. No jewel, crystal or precious stone could usurp the human eye. Consider the ears, tongue and the vocal chords. The human digestive and reproductive systems are staggering in their complexity and mystery. Everything
The Sixth Stage of Sexual Development is reached when an individual, or a couple, can experience a particular range of orgasmic states at will. This Stage begins with an expansion from genital orgasm to whole-body orgasm, and is available to both men and women. In men, it is orgasm beyond ejaculation. In women, it is orgasms beyond the clitoris. It is an aspect of life-force control, attained and enjoyed by certain individuals and couples who are able to develop a relationship that includes intimacy and sexuality at a sufficiently open and truthful level of consciousness. Experienced authentically, the sixth
Initial Training and Internship Programme Training to become an accredited Surrogate Partner Therapist is a one-year programme.

The first four Stages of Sexual Development that have so far been described in these blogs use energy from the physical body for fuel, culminating in an explosive release of energies into the environment. They are necessary, to feed nature. Innocent Sex has very little energetic substance, being mostly passive. In some cases, however, it can release significant quantities of dense energy that sustains states such as anxiety and fear. Instinctual Sex sustains animal life, Primal Sex feeds vegetation and Power Sex feeds the world’s ego. The fifth stage, Metaphysical Sex, feeds the soul and also feeds relationships. This stage is inaccessible to those stuck in Outside-In, or Simple
What is the essence, the substance, of the Universe? The answer is warmth. This warmth is not derived directly from the sun; what we experience from the sun is heat. Warmth is not felt when we sit in front of a fire; that, too, is heat. The essence of life—warmth—is that which the sun receives and radiates throughout the solar system. It emanates from the Source of All: behind the sun. It is this essence that animates our bodies and our minds. It is the first element of life that is welcomed in the new-born baby and the one most missed by
If an individual is in this stage of sex, especially within a relationship, they will experience a power struggle, felt not just in sex but also throughout all other aspects of life. If attempts to overcome the lack of self-control at the primal stage of sex have been unsuccessful, one or other partners will attempt to establish external control. This strategy does not work, real control is found within. For people living at this level, situations and circumstances keep repeating. Destructive relationships, financial difficulties and sexual problems won’t go away. They keep showing up irrespective of location or relationship partner. Imagine what it must
This level of sex provides an opportunity to evolve to Simple Sex. Relationships are usually the catalyst for this first metamorphosis. Unfortunately, not everyone makes this transition, even through a relationship of love. When one partner is still attached to Outside-In Sex while the other is ready for Simple Sex, there is fertile ground for deep conflict and potential schism. It can be puzzling for a couple to discover deep conflicts and strife emerging within their relationship when everything on the surface appears to be compatible. The differences between Outside-In and Simple Sex, however, exist at the unseen levels of consciousness and energy. The goal
