The time of this encounter was my 33rd year, only five years ago now, yet seemingly lifetimes past. And this initiation marks the beginnings of intense and extraordinary exploration into Self Healing, Sacred Sexuality and Tantric Perspective as it is often taught and understood in the West. Within this context, I undertook a Spirit quest that led me down into the Shadow depths, and would continue for several years before I would finally begin to turn face towards the light. This was a journey that my Soul demanded I take.
The gods now light a torch for me, gradually guiding my path into illumination. Yet, through all that has transpired, my body now requires that I walk slowly, quietly aware of my footing. This is a time that I have no choice but to come into stillness, dress my wounds, sheath my sword, trust, and integrate all that has occurred. Presently, I write from my newfound home in Ubud, Bali, where I now melt into my Spiritual cocoon and patiently observe the gentle and deliberate formation of new Wings. This is a time of healing and integration, not only from what has occurred during the past several years, but for the intensity of all of my expression within this lifetime, perhaps even from lifetimes past. I am, admittedly, wobbly on my feet, feeling quite worn and exhausted. Yet, I remain in site of the torch.
