4. JOINING THE LESSINS IN PARADISE by Jennie Day
Well, it's more like Aloha now. My name is Jennie and I've just joined Sasha and Janet here in this magnificent Maui paradise. I've come about 5000 miles from the coast of South Carolina where I've lived all of my life. But I feel like I have finally come home.
In SC, I was married to a doctor with his own practice and I had a good career in the same field. I had all of the physical and tangible security you could ever ask for, yet I found no peace or serenity. I had lost all sense of identity.
For two and a half years I searched many a dark path for some answers. What I found was there were no answers unless I changed the focus of my path to an inward journey of light and consciousness. This was the beginning point of an incredible light speed transformation of my entire existence.
What it means for me to be a part of this relationship, experiment, and community is difficult for me to answer. This type of relationship and ideas are totally new and foreign to me. I can only share how I came to be here and how this is unfolding as it happens now.
This joining with Sasha and Janet and the merging of our spirits I believe was a spiritually guided connection that was intended to happen. I had this inner voice that guided me to them, and for the first time in my life, was too strong to override. My soul has a voice.
I feel this is a wonderful experiment we're undertaking and I'm so privileged and blessed to be able to take part. Our connection has been so powerful and genuine that there is such an excitement to watch our energies and bonds forming and solidifying. And Yes, I do have a healthy level of fear, but I look at fear as a catalyst for spiritual growth. Ongoing communication on all levels keeps our awareness high and our love growing with each day.
I am really excited about being here through tantra school and experiencing the beauty of more enlightened souls. I know you're out there.
4. TRIAD: TESTS & TRIUMPHS: by Janet Kira Lessin
Jennie arrived last Friday and we fell in love immediately. I had thought the depth that I felt with my husband, Sasha, was something I could truly experience only with one. After all, Sasha and I were twin flames, right? We have only one split-apart, one person who is the other half to our whole, right? And yet, here was Jen, holding me, loving me, all her chakras open, love pouring from her every cell filling me up. Her entire being responded to our heart's plea, our soul's recognition of our connection. I was amazed, blown away at the miracle before me. I've found bliss. I am loved and adored by two.
I've been saying I'm polyamorous and I am. I say it to my friends. I go on television and speak it to the world. I know I am as I truly do love more than one in an intimate relationship. I'm not into one night stands and for me to be comfortable loving sexually, I must know the person, feel safe, feel honored, respected and loved. Sasha and I have established many loving friendships, those with whom we relate in warm, intimate fashion. Yet I've not been able to establish more than one full-chakra relationship. No one wanted to live with us, do it all, until now.
Sash and I are pretty intense and thus difficult to live with. Our issues are not completely healed . Our dynamics are pretty dynamic; one might say explosive! We trigger one another and our childhood wounds ooze to the surface. Sometimes our negative bonding patten plays itself out in very yucky ways. Yet Sasha and I are totally devoted, committed to each other and our relationship. We remain firm on the path to our total healing. We believe in us and our high-intensity journey to enlightenment.
I've understood the theory of polyamory and I've experienced many varieties of poly relating. I've held two loves in my heart for long periods of time. I've had lovers who both loved me, but didn't even want to meet one another. Sasha and I even dated a couple for many years and our relationship was full-on, intimate, loving and intense. Yet they didn't want to live with us. They eventually left us. It seemed the attraction in these early poly relationships was friendship, love and sexuality. But anything beyond that, especially with the eccentric Lessins, was a bit too much. Some relationships worked. Others left and have gone separate ways. I'll never forget any of them. I'll always love all of them.
Jennie is the first relationship I've experienced where she wants to do it all with me and Sasha. She's here to commit totally, share life, all of it, including the financial part. She's here not only for the sex, romance and love, (although I must admit, that part is quite lovely), but for the nitty gritty. She does laundry, pays bills, totes that bale, lifts that hay.
So the question I have for myself is how can I hold that depth, intensity and intimacy for two people in my heart, mind, body and soul all the time, morning, noon and night? Have I taken on too much? After all, I've only just begun to get a sense of me through by looking into the mirror of my beloved, my dear Sasha, the one soul who loves me totally, unconditionally, warts and all. The road to consciousness for me has been a long and arduous one. I'm definitely not there yet, yet I've seen glimpses and I know it's real. I still go unconscious, try as I may to maintain my center. When I get lost because I've become so involved in "doing" that I become a do-bee (one who does and not is), I ask Sasha to please chak-align with me (align chakras by facing me) so I can reorganize and find my starting point. I look in his eyes and we see deep into our souls. I breathe, relax, sigh. We smile, kiss, move energies. I feel connected again, grounded. My heart stops racing. I no longer feel lost. Then I can continue with the day and do all that I must do.
From what I've learned from Sasha, dyadic consciousness is the first level one experiences when moving from self to that which is beyond self. Many come to this state and remain there; some for all of their lives. There's the tendency to judge this state of existence as being stuck. However, it simply is.
In my search for unity consciousness, I intend and desire to go beyond dyadic consciousness to triadic consciousness, moresome consciousness and eventually surrender to the divine and knowingness that we are all truly one. While some may feel this is a state that we as souls can only accomplish when we are dead, I have at times experienced this level while being me and desire to experience more of this divine state. So while it may seem scary to my small, walking, wounded, inner child, my higher self and my adventurous parts move forward stopping now again to pat my little girl on the head and give her encouragement.
Back to the past. The child whimpers. Will there be enough for me? What about me being special? Will he still love me? Will she abandon me once I yell? How can I control my people so they do what I want. How can I control my environment to maximize everything for me, me, me!!!
I'm a time traveler. I may fool myself and think I'm here in the now. Yet parts of me formed so long ago creep here into today and make their presence known. If I try to suppress these thoughts, I make myself ill. If I express them, I risk alienation and judgment from those around me. Yet I know at this point, the only hope for freedom is truth.
Another miracle is I also realize that I not only travel through time, but I am a multi-dimensional being experiencing all that I am simultaneously, here, now, in this body, as me, as that which is known as Janet. Through my many near death experiences I've seen the alternative universes and I know many paths are available to all of us. It's a matter of choice and our belief system.
I've traveled to these same realms astrally, in my sleep, sharing the miracle with astral lovers. We've reported our night-time adventures next day and the level of accuracy was so high it was beyond coincidence. I've had lucid dreams, shared dreams, so many psychic intuitions come true to prove, if only to myself, that we humans have capabilities way beyond our five senses.
To top it all off, my tantric experiences have taken me clear to seventh heaven and I've touched the face of God while transcending my separate self sense and becoming one with my beloved.
Jennie and Sasha, I welcome our adventure. Please bear with me as I step cautiously. Please forgive me in advance when I become small, irritated, whiny and frightened. I'm learning how to walk. I'll eventually come to fly with your love, acceptance and patience.
When our duties of the day are done, I hold both my lovers in my arms. How can we merge three bodies into one? As souls I feel our oneness. It's a done deal. Yet the reality of our bodies simultaneously create separation and togetherness. How can we fit, touching, not leaving any part of ourselves out? Can we energetically remain connected, all chakras, all three directions?
I find the position that suits me best. I lie atop Jennie. My arms are strong and can hold me up for long times so I do not crush her fragile frame. Sasha comes below and kisses her yoni. Jenn and I kiss. He penetrates her with his long, experienced fingers. His tongue and mouth caress her clitoris and it becomes engorged with blood and resembles a minerature penis. The tantra master finds home and stokes her sacred space. Jennie begins to quake, shiver. She and I move as one. She orgasms, her kundalini rushes, the energy engulfs me as her kisses grow more intense. She groans, we groan. She orgasms again. And again. I merge with her. I feel what she feels. I feel what he feels. Our circuit is complete. We all feel what one another feels. For a moment in time time freezes and we go beyond time to timelessness. United, we three, experience the miracle of love and divine grace as we look in God's eyes.
I judge that I've only found one way that is comfortable thus far to connect. I must forgive myself for we are so new to one another. I must congratulate myself for our love is so real,deep, profound, intense. I gift myself with love and patience. I know finding one avenue that many others exist and we will find them. Thank you Jennie and Sasha. I love you both so much.
6. ADORE APHRODITE: HOW TO REALLY LOVE A WOMAN September 28-29, 2002
This important first-level seminar is a vehicle for personal growth, transformation and self-examination, reflecting on the mirrors that come before you, understanding the connectedness of souls and how each person's story is but a part of self.
Participants learn to appreciate the value of being both Receiver and Giver, regardless of their role they assume in these seminars. They delight in being there for another human being, let down their defensiveness in a safe, loving, supportive community, liberate themselves from limiting programming acquired from a lifetime of experiences.
Ladies, as Receiver, this is your turn to teach your partner how to honor, hear and heed you. The Lessins teach your partner how to mirror, validate and empathize with you, communicate compassionately, heal your hurts, gift and touch you and (if and when you choose), stimulate your sacred sexual sector satisfactorily.
Here's a guide for you, Giver, to adore and nurture your partner more. Gift her with pleasure supreme and, if needed, space to explore memories or emotions that block her pleasure. If she has such blocks--and most women do--your support helps her transcend her hurts, trust you as her healer, and claim her birthright as Goddess of Love and Delight.
Couples go deeper than they ever had before, superseding limitations that previously kept them from true intimacy, transcendence and seeing past their skin-encapsulated selves to fully feel their oneness. Singles, admitted on a gender-balanced basis, discover one another and form friendships that can last a lifetime. Some fall in love and become the beloved. Others operate as surrogates for the future beloved to come into the life of their new-found friend allowing them to discover other forms of love just as deep and viable as romantic love.
Sasha Lessin, Ph.D. and Janet Lessin, the seminar leaders, authors of How to Really Love a Woman, explicitly demonstrate (video demonstration optional) and coach what they teach. $195 Single, $395 pair.
7. COMPASSIONATE COMMUNICATIONS CLASSES on Maui leader: Melanie
Sears, September 20 & 21
Melanie writes: "Compassionate Communications (also known as: Nonviolent Communication) is a powerful communications process, which gives us tools that help us stay connected with our hearts even in the most difficult situation. Compassionate Communications helps us to identify our own feelings and needs and those of others. Through a simple four-step process we begin to understand how to communicate from the heart in a way that allows everyone's needs to be met. My presentations will draw real examples from the participants and will use these examples to help illustrate the concepts. Some of these concepts are: developing the ability to observe without evaluating, identifying feelings and needs that are common with all people, using accurate empathy to connect and support, and learning to use "I-messages." The participants will learn tools that will give them guidance when they begin to change their communications from a judging-blaming-criticizing-labeling-analyzing model to a feelings-needs model.
'The presentation will begin with a brief history of Compassionate Communications, the philosophy behind it, and an introduction of my involvement with the process. I will explain the four steps of the process. The four steps are Observation, Feelings, Needs, and Requests.
Participants will be asked to determine whether someone is making an observation or evaluation with their own personal examples. For instance, if someone says, "my boss is a jerk," this will be an evaluation. If they say, "My boss gave me five 'needs improvement' on my last evaluation," this is an observation. Then participants will determine words that describe feelings and universal needs. Using live examples, participants will get to practice accurate empathy. We will discuss blocks to communications such as giving advice, making judgments, colluding instead of empathizing, and attributing someone's actions as the cause of our feelings. Throughout the presentation I will empathize the importance of caring for our own needs first in order to stay healthy and to meet the needs of others.
"Compassionate Communications is the most important tool I have found to help me in both my professional and personal life. It allows me to maintain congruence with my internal and external experience and to practice self-care. It also gives me the tools I need to connect compassionately with anyone regardless of their race or national origin. Compassionate Communication is an essential tool for anyone in relationships for parents and for those who want to live peacefully with self."
