A 1-hour class featuring a short discussion on the Red Bindu: what it is; how we dissociate from it; and the problems caused by its shutdown in our health, our psychology, and our lives.
What is the Red Bindu?
At its essence, the red bindu refers to the universal prānā (energy) that flows within each of us and manifests as both vitality and sexuality. When unimpeded it gives rise to an endless source of passion, creativity, radiant health, compassion, confidence, magnetism, joie de vivre, and much more.
It also flavors our self-image, our emotions, and how we interface with life - in other words - much of our personality and psychology.
In our modern culture most people experience some degree of shut down, compulsion, or the perversion of this sacred force, which leads to: an unnatural libido (too low or too high); experiencing sex as painful, traumatic, immoral, etc.; early aging, loss of creativity, depression, isolation, nihilism, suicidality, no value or purpose in life, addiction, confusion about sexual pleasure and preferences, and/or a lack of sensuality that is instead commandeered by an over-emotionality that we mistake for life itself.
Through dedicated red bindu practice we can reclaim the true power and spontaneity of wild eros, along with our most intimate connection to life, thus (re)discovering our inherent outpouring of beauty, wisdom, and love.
