Join Senior Teacher Justine Dawson for an evening exploration of the challenges and possibilities of desire.
Desire is one of the most potent forces in human experience. More than just a sexual urge, the energy of desire sparks inspiration, nourishes vitality, and fuels creativity. It’s life’s call into aliveness and connection. When we disconnect from desire, it’s common to feel listless, uncertain, and lost. But the experience of desire can also stir confusion, touch shame, and activate clinging. There’s a reason we fear it. So how do we engage with desire skillfully? What does it look like to turn towards desire, become curious about its nature, and integrate its intelligence and aliveness?
When we include desire in our practice and apply our mindfulness, we discover it is the foundation of healthy boundaries and intuitive knowing. We access its energy. We deepen our intimacy. And we may even find it to contain the seeds of our awakening – acting as an agent that shakes up our narrow sense of self, our ideas of who we “should be”, and revealing something more authentic and whole.
Bring an open ear and your honest questions to this engaging dialog, and leave with greater insight and tools for a healthy, vibrant practice.
