“I am honored to be invited to share my two decades of Human Sexuality Studies through movement forms, “touch .. be touched.”
Life originates from myriad forms of touch which generates and reconnects back to the Source Energy (Ki).
The Source Energy expresses itself through Sacred Sensuous Energy. I have had direct experiences in this since my teen years growing up in a rural part of South Korea.
Sexuality without this essential understanding of “touch…be touched” can lead to painfully unfulfilled and empty relationships with self and others.
Touch quietly begins within; it transfigures into a meaningful conduit for one’s soul recognition which then is ready to .. be touched.
