Transcendent Sex: Research into the Bodymind's Innate Capacity for Creating Mythic Experience Jenny Wade

Sex and spiritual experiences have been linked from the earliest times in history, though what sacred sex has meant and what it feels like has been obscured, distorted, or channeled into fixed ideas about certain archetypal images. Research into the spontaneously occurring transcendent experiences of ordinary people shows that sex can unintentionally trigger an extremely wide range of visionary and other altered states unconfined by sexual or gendered imagery or particular belief systems. Such experiences are so profound that they transform people in positive and negative ways. They have the power to destabilize as well as to heal. This presentation explores research presented in Jenny's new book, Transcendent Sex: When Lovemaking Opens the Veil.
