The Practice & Discipline of Developing a Sense-ual Life
This conversation came up in a recent talk I shared on exploring hyper-presence and amazing, sensual creative states in rope play. It's really not just about rope, or kink, actually. It's about being sensual - as in being aware of all of our senses. Yes, being intimate with one's senses is a great thing for our sex and erotic life. This is actually even more important in our daily lives. We so often think of the sensual as being specific to the horizontal boogie. I'm not sure when it happened that we relegated exploration of the senses to the bedroom. We are creatures of sensory perception and existence. Perhaps this is part of the driving force behind the intense foodie pursuits popping up everywhere. If you listen to passionate gourmands speak, you'll hear the breath, pulse and descriptions akin to passionate sex.
Ok, so food and sex. We get to indulge in our senses in these two parts of our lives.
But how can we be truly of our senses, and sensual, if we don't notice the world around us on a daily basis - in the most mundane moments?
I'd like to share one of the exercises and homework we have in a class I teach. I call it the 30-Second Sensualist. Take 30 seconds, any 30 seconds - preferably when you are not in danger of driving off a cliff or messing up a surgical procedure - and go through each of your senses. Completely focus on one sense at a time. Let this be in ordinary moments.
What do you really see? Can you see the details of the light through the autumn leaves?
What do you really smell? Can you describe the scene of the warm sidewalk?
What do you really taste? Would you be able to describe in detail the taste of the last summer peach?
What do you really feel? The skin of the sun warmed peach - how does that feel?
What do you really hear? Can you hear all the birds as you walk to work?
As we practice the 30 Second Sensuality, let that become a minute... and then two minutes... and.... Can you do this for 15 minutes? Oh! If you can, what amazing things your senses will awaken for you!
Enjoy the end of the summer senses in the northern hemisphere - and enjoy the senses of the coming spring in the southern hemisphere!
