Wake up Now a One Minute Meditation

I am excited to share this practice from my forth coming book, Making Love to Life. It only takes 1 minute to drop in and notice the infinite bliss that is always already here. Do this 12-20 times a day.

The five lines are:
Looking Outward, I Experience the World.
Looking Inward, I Discover Emptiness.
Emptiness Recognizes Awareness.
Awareness Realizes Unity-Consciousness.
Unity-Consciousness Radiates Infinite Bliss

Open the Central Pleasure Channel Video

Opening the Central Energy Channel

The purpose of this practice is to access and expand your awareness of the life-force energy that moves naturally throughout the body.  This practice supports you in having a relaxed body-mind, an open heart and more awareness of the Now.  Another benefit is that it helps to amplify and redistribute sexual energy throughout the body. 

 Four Keys of Tantra
1.      Breath
2.      Sound
3.      Movement
4.      Awareness

You are born knowing the essence of tantra. The four keys are natural and fundamental to the human condition. The first independent act we take at birth is to breathe. After our first breath, we cry (sound) which expands our lungs.  These two important acts are crucial for infants to make the shift from living in their mother’s womb to being able to live and breathe on their own.  Next, the infant begins to move its arms and legs and explore the space around him/her. All of this arises within awareness.

Standing or Lying Down
The following practices can be done either standing with legs hip-width apart and knees slightly bent or lying comfortably on your back with the knees bent and feet flat on the floor.  I recommend trying it both ways. 

The Sipping Breath and “AHHH” Sound
The Sipping Breath amplifies awareness of the inhalation and allows you to draw the air deep into the abdomen.  This type of breathing increases the amount of oxygen circulating in the body, which increases the sense of vitality and pleasure we can feel.
1.      Begin by placing your hands just below the navel area and puckering your lips as if you are sipping through a straw. Leave a slight gap between the lips and inhale deeply through the mouth. Feel your abdomen expanding. 

2.      Then, relax the mouth, drop the shoulders and let the air flow out effortlessly, while making the sound “AHHH” throughout the exhalation.

 Pelvic Rocking
Now, we add external movement, called, “pelvic rocking.” This practice opens the sacral area (2nd chakra) and helps to activate the sexual energy stored in the pelvic bowl.   
1.      In this practice you will visualize a channel of energy running up the center of the body, just in front of the spine, from the perineum (the area between the genitals and the anal area) up to the top of the head.  

2.      Focus your attention on rotating your pelvis by moving it forward and backward.  As you inhale, arch the lower back, the buttocks will naturally stick out slightly. As you exhale, tuck the tailbone under, flattening the lower back and rounding the shoulders.  As the pelvis rotates, the whole spinal column is naturally engaged. This causes the head to fall back slightly (as you arch the lower back) and fall forward slightly (as you round the shoulders).

3.      Once you have this movement established, you can add the “Sipping Breath.”  Inhale deeply and see if you can feel the breath activating the energy in the perineum as you arch the lower back. Exhale with an “Ahhh,” as you tuck your tailbone and round the shoulders.  

4.      This time, as you inhale visualize sipping the energy up from the perineum towards the heart and as you exhale with an “Ahhh” feel the energy moving back towards the perineum.
5.      Go at a rate that feels right for you. You may begin to notice an increased awareness of your sexual/life force energy as it begins to move up and down the central channel.
6.       As you feel ready, try quickening and then slowing the pace.  Relax and enjoy the sensations that arise as you explore the central channel. 

The PC Pump
Next, we add the internal movement, called the PC Pump or Kegel Exercise.  This practice strengthens and tones the pelvic floor/PC (pubococcygeul) muscles. Becoming more aware of how to consciously engage these muscles will allow you to more effectively channel your sexual energy. This practice supports both men and women in having multiple full-body orgasms. It can help men to develop the ability to choose when, and if, they ejaculate. 

1.      Begin by bringing the focus of attention to the pelvic floor. Squeeze the PC muscles, as if you were stopping the flow of urine. See if you can isolate the various muscles around the urethra and anus. 
2.      Allow your arms to rest at your sides.  As you inhale, contract your PC muscles.  At the same time, squeeze your hands into fists as a reminder to contract the pelvic floor muscles.
3.      As you exhale, relax your hands and your PC muscles.  Do this several times until it begins to feel more natural.

4.      Next, add the Sipping Breath on the inhale and “Ahhh” on the exhale.
5.      Once that is established, add the Pelvic Rock. On the inhale, sip in the breath as you arch the back and squeeze the PC and fists.  On the exhale, make the “Ahhh” sound as you flatten the lower back and relax the PC and hands. 

6.      Once that is established, continue with all the steps and, on the inhale, visualize energy moving up the central channel from the pelvic floor toward the crown of the head. On the exhale, visualize the energy moving back down the central channel to the pelvic floor. As you do this practice, you will become aware of increased energy and vitality circulating throughout the body. 
1.      Look within the notice the empty space that exists before thoughts arise.
2.      Be curious about this empty space. Ask, “What is present prior to all experience? “
3.      Notice that this fundamental space of awareness never changes. It is infinite and eternal. This is Awareness, it is your fundamental nature.

“When I look within and realize I am emptiness, that is freedom. When I look outward and realize I am everything, that is love. Creation is simply the dance of love and freedom infinitely and eternally unfolding.” Crystal Dawn Morris

Opening the central channel increases awareness, well-being and vitality. When done regularly it supports you in experiencing more ease and joy in life. It also helps you tap into the orgasmic energy of Source Consciousness that underlies all of creation.

Opening the central channel increases awareness, vitality and, when done regularly, supports you in experiencing increased orgasmic energy- both inside and outside a sexual context!

Contact Elaine Young:

Why should I attend and what will I gain?

  • You will understand and appreciate how crucial this is to your wellbeing and therefore you will give it attention and priority.
  • You will be confident in understanding and speaking out your boundaries and therefore you will be more willing to allow it.
  • You will have learned a number of techniques and skills to masterfully reconnect yourself to pleasure whenever you choose to. 

Is this simply a week of pleasure & fun?

Sure this week will offer you the opportunity to have fun and pleasure, but the purpose of this week is much deeper and more powerful than that alone.

What experience are we offering you?
  • This retreat is an opportunity to immerse yourself in, to be held and guided in a strong safe container for 7 days.
  • This container will move you through the many different forms and intensities of pleasure so that your mind, body and soul can reset, rewire, learn or re learn what pleasure is for you and how it feels.
  • In the process your relationship to pleasure will be changed, reset and will have expanded on a neurological, cellular, somatic and mind level.
  • You will have increased and heightened your pleasure limit or pleasure ceiling.
Why Pleasure?

Certain things in life are really important to our quality of life and our physical and emotional wellbeing.  Our nutrition, our physical fitness and our ability to experience, feel and receive pleasure are all essential nurturing aspects of living life as a human being.
Pleasure can be gained from our intimate and casual relationships with others, our work, food, sports, hobbies, passions in life, dancing, music, singing, touch, sexuality and relaxation.  Pleasure keeps us engaged in life, it keeps us young and healthy and it changes the state of our mental and physical wellbeing. Pleasure  floods our systems with happy and healing hormones and other substances. Pleasure is medicine for the body, mind and soul.
Why this Retreat?

If you want to explore your relationship to food and nutrition you may choose to go on a healthy eating or detox retreat or you may explore fasting. If you want to improve your physical health you might attend a wellbeing retreat or a fitness bootcamp. This is week long is the pleasure equivalent your very own ‘Pleasure Bootcamp’ or ‘Pleasure Retox Retreat’.
This sounds exciting or scary, or both?

Yes, the idea of plentiful pleasure is both exciting and scary for many of us. Our fears and desires in life are so closely related and interlinked that we often desire what we fear and fear what we desire…. so yes it can bring up fear and doubt to of step forward and commit to really allowing and exploring your own pleasure. It can also bring up feelings or thoughts of shame, guilt, selfishness and unworthiness. It can feel scary to take full responsibility for our own pleasure.
We understand that to feel this fear and excitement in around pleasure is ‘normal’ for many of us and we are able to offer you full support as and when you may need it. If difficulties arise for you we invite this as a part of the process and both of us have the skills and knowledge to coach and hold you in a way that allows you to move forward at your own pace.  We commit to holding you with love, admiration for your courage and compassion for all of our humanness 
So whether this scares or excites you, this week is for you.

Why do I need to learn how to feel pleasure, shouldn’t that come naturally to me?

Amazingly in life, most if not all, of us are born with a wonderful natural sense of innocence and pleasure. For many of us sadly the experiences we have in life move us away from pleasure.
We may judge it as wrong, we are afraid of it, others judge or disapprove when we express pleasure, my church, family or culture tells me its wrong, we are punished for feeling pleasure, because of particular life experiences we sometimes are dramatically disconnected from or forget/block out how to feel pleasure. For all or any of these reasons we move away from pleasure, choose not to allow it or disconnect from it. We therefore need to learn or relearn how to allow, invite and welcome pleasure back into our life.

 Who is the week long suitable for?
  • You find it difficult or impossible to experience pleasure with some external stimulus, another person, toys, imagery.
  • You have a desire for more pleasure in your life.
