Is it because the population density of the Muong, Dao and Thai ethnic groups here is usually concentrated in individual, seemingly closed, but their festivals are usually not large scale, not excel, away from the area they live in. Even Muong people are divided into four main Muongs, having certain autonomy in each place, making it somewhat confined.

What if relationship was a practice, and intimacy was by design? TODAY at 3pm PST I’ll continue that thread by speaking on “The Trap of Modern Day Romance” on The Becoming Love Telesummit, hosted by Tamala Baldwin.
What I’ve found along my personal and professional path is that people who are drawn towards spiritual growth feel limited by the box that society has created for what it means to be in “romantic relationship”. We desire a new way to engage in intimacy and connection where we don’t have to shut down aspects of who we are to experience true fulfillment in relationship.
Register for free at www.becomingloveproject.com and tune LIVE at 3pm PST as I wax poetic about a new model for intimate relationship.

TONIGHT from 7:30-9:30pm at Heartspace Studios Fairfax, I’ll be hosting Essential Intimacy: An Evening of Authentic Connection Games

TONIGHT from 7:30-9:30pm at Heartspace Studios Fairfax, I’ll be hosting Essential Intimacy: An Evening of Authentic Connection Games. (And FYI, It will be the last in-person event I hold in the Bay Area for several months).
✨This gathering is a place to come and practice removing the masks that we’ve been conditioned to wear by society–telling us who to be and how to be in order to experience the love and connection we’re yearning for.
✨It’s a place to explore vulnerability, judgment, and desire, all within a safe and structured container of love and approval for who you truly are.
✨I understand that this work can be scary, confronting, or overwhelming at times–I get it. One secret I want to share is that I’m terrified of intimacy also, which is why I do and teach this work–to create a conscious user manual for navigating the nuanced art of intimacy and connection.
✨I’ll tell you another secret–I do this work of vulnerability, intimacy and connection in community and in my relationships because of how these practices have completely transformed the way I manifest my reality.
✨In fact, I’m about to leave for an epic 3 month adventure that is a direct reflection of the intimacy work I’ve been committed to over the past 3 years…and I’ll share more about that with you next week.
✨This will be the last in-person event I hold in the Bay Area until May, so if you are curious and want one last opportunity to experience these intimate gatherings before I depart on my journey, I invite you to come out and play.
Link to RSVP and read details for the gathering is in the comments below.

Sometimes you gotta take a bite out of life
even if it’s more than you can chew
But don’t forget to enjoy every moment while

Last year, me and Robert Kandell did a live video series “Six Vulnerable Conversations”, where we had six raw unscripted dialogues on topics that provoke us to get real about connection, intimacy, sex, power, and more.
We loved the experience so much that we decided to continue the project, but this time between two women–myself and Jamie Thompson, Erotic Desire & Intimate Communication Expert.
Our first live dialogue is tomorrow (Tue, Feb 13th) at 10am PST. We’ll explore The Victim Archetype in Romance and Relationship–looking at how to create empowered relationship dynamics without playing into outdated gender roles that have us sacrifice our authentic needs and desires.
Tune in LIVE on Zoom video here, and bring your questions for LIVE Q&A at the end of the call: https://zoom.us/j/757993922

“It’s about time we acknowledge that the entire western, mainstream system is hijacked by psychopathic, war criminal, profiteers who could not care less about children domestically or abroad… the 2-party system is a sham, and they are using the bought media to rob us all in the biggest heist in history.” ~ A.
