I just received confirmation that I’ll be speaking at CatalystCon – Sparking Communication in sexuality, activism and acceptance. in LA in May 2018!
The topic for my session will be on:
“A New Paradigm for Intimacy & Relationship”
I’m excited to engage in more public speaking on the topics of intimacy, sexuality, relationship and consciousness–and would love to invite your creative brainpower to support my words and work reaching more people.
Is there a festival, a conference, and event you feel I would be a great fit for? I’m book all the way out into Summer of 2018. Thank you in advance for being a part of the creative web of connection.

The more I allow my partner to feel my genuine anger, frustration and discomfort, the better our sex becomes.
Deeper insights to follow soon.

“We are sexually repressed. And we are particularly repressed in the area that relates the to the psychedelic experience.”
“Authority is a lie and an abomination. Authority will lead you into ruin. It’s not real. What is real is experience. What is real is this moment.”
“It empowers the individual. It dissolves the cheerful model of science. It enriches the accessible universe ten-fold. It makes the individual complete within herself.
“Being complete within oneself extremely destructive to the plan of the dominators, which is that you will be a cog in a machine.”
“We have bought into the idea that we have to serve or else chaos will engulf the world. We thrive in chaos.”

“The president* presented his national security strategy on Monday. That strategy seems to consist primarily of his impression of his own obvious greatness. The speech was fat with banalities that he struggled to pronounce, vague policy prescriptions that he struggled to enunciate, and sheer unmitigated bafflegab that he struggled to deliver. Plus sniffing and gasping and a two-handed death-grip on a small glass of water. The president* himself sounds worse than his rhetoric does, and that boggles the mind.” …baffleagab! the asterisks, love this.
The news is a parade of trauma, a surreal Orwellian dystopian drama. They’re coming for us all, for the journalists, the scientists, the facts.

Or will it break, and does it depend on just us, and if it does, well then, can we trust us.
Big story. Potential obstruction of Justice here.
Senator Richard Burr of North Carolina, the intelligence committee chairman, said in an interview this week that Mr. Trump told him that he was eager to see an investigation that has overshadowed much of the first year of his presidency come to an end.

The first tears came from just seeing a family that looks like mine. The chancla, the pink cake, the gritos. The abuelita with the trenzas, the other one with the delantal. The brown families that filled the theater, but also the ones that weren’t and who loved the movie even if it was different. This is really important. It is more than an animated movie.
I interviewed Wesley Snipes, the star of New Jack City, White Men Can’t Jump and The Blade Trilogy. I asked him for his best career advice and he said…
“Apprentice under masters of the craft. Roll with the winners. Pray with the pastors and hang with the “heavy hitters”. Let them feed you education and inspiration. These are the life-vest you’ll need to get through rough waters.”
