Day 5:  Internal Clitoris

IMG_1134I was 45 and newly divorced when I attended my first Tantra workshop. I had, until that point, thought of myself as sexually liberated and relatively aware of my own body and my body’s capacity for pleasure and procreation. On the second day of the workshop, the instructor brought out a “vulva puppet,” and I was astonished at how much I didn’t know about my own genital landscape. I certainly knew the basics, but there is sooooo much more to know…

For a deeper exploration into Sacred Loving and Tantra, I highly recommend Source School of Tantra Beginners Weekend.


Thought for the Day:

Today we explore our genital landscape.

Intimate knowledge of your own genitalia is key to accessing their power and magic. We will be exploring this area in different ways over the next weeks, but first let’s take a look…


Watch and listen to Betty Dodson explain in detail the inner-workings of our clitoral landscape. To learn more about Betty and her landmark work that begin in the ‘70s, visit: www.

In your journal, answer this question: How well do I know my own genital landscape? What parts of this video caught my attention?

Daily Contemplation:

I will not die an unlived life.
I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire.
I choose to inhabit my days
to allow my living to open me,
to make me less afraid,
more accessible,
to loosen my heart,
until it becomes a wing,
a torch, a promise.
I choose to risk my significance;
to live so that which came to me as seed
goes to the next as blossom,
and that which came to me as blossom
goes on as fruit.
