Liberating Desire: Dharma and Sexuality - Part 1 of 2 (Podcast)
Tuesday, March 18, 2014 - 8:17am

You may need: Adobe Flash Player.

We all have a sex life, active or otherwise, alone or with others. Sex takes up a lot of mental and emotional space in our lives, yet while dharma teachings offer profound understanding of many aspects of human experience, sex too often gets ignored, despite its potency and frequency in our experience.

Join renowned dharma teacher Martin Aylward for a provocative and powerful presentation of teachings, practice, and discussion around dharma and sex, exploring such questions as:

Why do dharma teachings often ignore sex?
In which ways do you go unconscious around sex and why?
How can dharma practice wake you up in your sex life?
Might the potency and erotic charge of sexual desire be an important part of a passionate, liberated engagement with life?
