Langston Kahn: Liberating the Power of Our Erotic Desires

Check out Langston Kahn’s article, Why You Need to Be Triggered, and his upcoming program, Deep Liberation: Heart-Centered Tools for Deep Rooted Healing.

Given the state of our world and the grim futures on the horizon, it may feel shameful to focus on pleasure and desire. We are taught, after all, to compartmentalize the erotic into arenas of hyper-sexualization and sensation divorced from context. Or to deny and distance ourselves from it entirely. For folks with marginalized identities who are often hyper-policed, it can feel especially threatening to fully take up space inhabiting the power of our desire.

But what if focusing on your desire actually is essential for navigating into a future in service of Life? Langston, who is a Black and Queer shaman, believes that we can rescue our sexual desire from the ways it has been hijacked, and can liberate all kinds of desire in our life. In doing so, he says, we can create a deeply satisfying life centered on what has heart and meaning to us and that nourishes the next generations.

In this free online webinar Langston will explore with you concepts and practices to engage the power of the erotic; bring the yearning of your mind, heart and sex into alignment; and liberate your own desires’ capacities to co-create a more beautiful life and world.

There will also be an opportunity for a Q&A about Langston’s upcoming weekend online workshop: Deep Liberation: Heart-Centered Tools for Deep Rooted Healing.
