THE FEMALE ELDER

THE FEMALE ELDER
THE FEMALE ELDER I AWOKE THIS MORNING REMEMBERING AN ANCIENT MYTH WORTH SHARING. There are many versions of this myth. Below is one I offer for you to think about. It was part of my dream. Recently my dreams have been related to coming to terms with my past as well as with the wonders and gifts that the totality of inner and outer beauty offered by Aging and the wisdom that comes with it. I like calling it (S)aging. The word "cailleach" in the Scottish-Gaelic means old woman! "coileach-oidhche" ... Read More

LOVING LONG, LOVING LIGHT: TANTRIC SEX FOR ALL

LOVING LONG, LOVING LIGHT: TANTRIC SEX FOR ALL
This week I’ve been thinking about Tantric Sex. No, that’s not true, I’ve been obsessed by the practice of it. Interviewing Margot Landry On the Couch Feb-2-14 and reading her book Loving You Enlightens Me, reminded me of so much of my own past explorations, experiences and education during my time at Esalen, India, other Asian countries and the countless energy workshops I’ve taken over my lifetime. ...

AN AGED–SAGED VIEW ON LOVE AND LIFE

AN AGED–SAGED VIEW ON LOVE AND LIFE
With added years I’m coming to learn that love and forgiveness may be what keeps us alive. I’m aware I've less time and patience for petty issues. When I researched my last book (Sex for Grown-Ups: Dr. Dorree Reveals the Truths, Lies and Must –Tries for Great Sex After 50), I read that wise elders were in fact happier and less depressed than youth as they had perspective. Of course, if they had health, community and humor, those were an added plus. If one has lived life learning along the way, ... Read More

AGING-SAGING

AGING-SAGING
“Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand.” ― Margery Williams, The Velveteen Rabbit When I worked as a psychologist, I often read the above paragraph to my clients. Sometimes, I would read more of the book than just that paragraph and sometimes, other books too. ... Read More

LADIES LEAN BACK

LADIES LEAN BACK
While I love Sheryl Sandberg’s catchy Lean In lingo, and I support her global mission encouraging and supporting women to work together by leaning into their ambitions, I am concerned that in the processes women may forget to lean back and breathe. True power and sustaining balance, comes from the energy that flows from the spine. In spite of many strides forward woman probably remain the most highly discriminated group, not only in America, but the world. While we need each other (and our men), ... Read More
