In October and November of this year we will be running two events for couples: Sacred Loving.

Sharon & Kenneth Mauldin, who will run this weekend workshop, offer a safe space and loving guidance for couples and individuals to experience their sexuality as a sacred learning and healing ground while growing in trust and intimacy with themselves and others. We invite you to join us as ecstatic lovers of life.

Here is an ‘Introduction to SACRED LOVING’ written by Sharon Mauldin:

Our sexuality is core to how we interact with the ourselves, our lovers, our world.  When we open to the fullness of our enlivened sexuality we empower and enrich all parts of our life.   Unfortunately, many of us have been cut off from this natural  flow of essential creative life force.    We experience our sexuality through the veils of conditioning, beliefs and stories we’ve been told by society, our parents, churches, media etc.   Continue Reading Sacred Loving…

1. Happiness is accepting “what is” and getting on with life. Recriminations or regrets have no place in happiness.

2. Happiness is a natural state of being, just choose it and make it happen. You will never be happier than you expect to be, so raise your expectations.

3. Happiness is savoring every moment in the present. Spending too much time in the past or the future is robbing you of your NOW.
Time NOW is your life NOW. Treasure it.

4. Happiness is developing the wisdom to know what is in your control and what isn’t and accepting it. Knowing that  you can only control yourself.

5. Happiness is making time for yourself every day in any way you choose and allowing others the same right.

6. Happiness is appreciating what you ALREADY have and not dreaming your life away.

7. Happiness is letting all of the people in your life know how much you love and appreciate them now. Live each moment as if it is your last.

In the end what matters is;
How well did you live
How well did you love
How well did you learn to let go

How do you make sure you experience happiness?
