In this new book, Caffyn Jesse explains how she weaves somatic practices and sacred intimacy together with psychedelic medicines. They describe the neurobiology of lasting love and social change, showing how our reach for social and environmental justice might be resourced by medicines, and embodied practices, that grow our capacity for integrity, intimacy and ecstasy.
“Ecstatic Belonging” is the theme that focuses Caffyn Jesse’s personal explorations on the medicine path. Certain psychedelic medicines, themes, inquiries and erotic practices support a dive into different aspects of ecstatic belonging, at different times of the year. In the science of stardust, cells and soils, there are stories to inspire. There is poetry, too, in this more beautiful world that is both ancient and new. “Ecstatic Belonging” is a way of life we can practice. We can invent powerful alternatives to capitalism and colonialism, with our wild imaginations, loving touch and daring dreams.
Caffyn Jesse draws on decades of experience as a sacred intimate and teacher of somatic sexual wellness. Insights into the neurobiology of ecstasy are woven with stories from the psychedelic medicine path.
“There is a medicine path of embodied love I want to share with you. On this path, we commit to our own souls and feel them amplified, as we join in intimate connection with one another. Integrity grows in the experience of deep, abiding intimacies, resourced by many experiences of ecstasy.”
