Guest Host on "Magic of the Spheres" Podcast with Sabrina Monarch
Latest on the Magic of the Spheres podcast I had a fun conversation with Morgan Hopson about cultivating sexiness and eroticism. This is like having an erotic relationship to the fabric of reality and the whole environment, like the way clothes feel on our skin, or the smells we take in around us, or the things that catch our eye in a room and excite us — and not just erotics with a particular person, though these erotic relationships with other people are often extensions of the erotic energy that we cultivate within ourselves. We talked about the importance of the value of cultivating the erotic and you’ll find some activating, grounding advice in this episode about how to increase intimacy with yourself and your relationship to the rest of the world around you! Tune into this episode where you listen to podcasts and let us know what you think! - Sabrin Monarch
