About my work....

For the past ten years:  ...... I have been touching people in a way that comes from the depth of my soul. I have called it massage so that you will have some frame of reference, and I am trained in massage, which is generally  physically focused (muscles, joints, ligaments, etc.), in which I have only a casual interest in terms of therapy. In the ten years prior I was a sannyasin to Osho, which was a very profound journey that gave tremendous insight into our human dilemma. So, from that perspective, attempting to muster as much compassion for myself and my brethren as I could, I began touching people in a way that stirs them, awakens them to remember that they are a miracle of the energy of creation. And many of my clients confirmed for me, they taught me that they indeed had never been touched the way a child hungers to be caressed by a mother, adored by a lover, ravished by a deeply sexual partner, and that culturally had reluctantly believed that they didn't deserve this, or that it simply wasn't important   but the deeper body was screaming for it and tense, as a result of living in an unnatural, linear, materialistic reality which did little to nurture their heart and soul. and enable them to relax into.... the bliss of existence (which is the meaning of my name... Ma Anand Jivana) and the working title of a book that I have in progress. And with this understanding, I use the situation to deliver a message about the sacredness of sexuality, that to create a sacred planet we must first create a sacred honoring of the very source of life, one that inspires the deepest honoring and  respect for self and other. That our hunger for sexual expression evolve from an ego/hormone driven motivation to an expression of our passionate love of life and source. And that sexuality at its highest can put us in direct contact with the unmanifest realm, transcendent experience, and a oneness with all life.....All of which, I feel, Is very important if our species is to survive and thrive on this exquisitely beautiful and abundant planet.
