Naked Coffee by the Woodstove

72 lotusnude A Friday Feature of Orgasmic Alchemy blog is Conversation over Naked Coffee. In Summer we love to have our coffee naked in the garden, or on the screen porch. But it's Winter in Maine, and there is a howling snowstorm blowing outside. Let's huddle up the woodstove with a steaming cuppa and chat a while. Yes, you can have a blanket, this is a drafty old farm house. Throw another log on the fire. That's good. Thanks!

So what do you want to talk about? Yes, you get to choose the topic, ask some questions. OK, I'll start. Let's get warmed up, back right up the woodstove till our bums turn pink. My friend Pat shared this talk by Eve Ensler on TED, called Embrace your Inner Girl.  Let's watch together then talk about it in the comments below.

Wow! That's what Naked Coffee is all about! Getting naked with the truth, our feelings! What was the most powerful part of this video for you? Did you read through some of the comments? What are those folks resisting? Did this talk scare them? How are you feeling right now? Please sign in with typepad, facebook or twitter accounts, and leave your comments below. Can I heat up your cup there? More cream?

Phenomenal Touch in Maine

This weekend I'll be training at the first level Phenomenal Touch workshop. This is the first ever Phenomenal Touch training offered East of Colorado. We are incredibly fortunate to have a Certified Teacher and awesome practitioner right here in Maine: Jeffrey Chaplin of Namaste Studios in Gardiner. I've worked with Jeff a lot over the summer, and the physical and emotional healing we co-created was transforming. If you are within an hours drive, I recommend Phenomenal Touch sessions with Jeff. If you are body work practitioner in New England or the Northeast U.S. I recommend the training. It's driving distance!I am deeply pleasured to be adding Phenomenal Touch practices to my Orgasmic Alchemy jewel chest.

This blog is a cauldron, bubbling with art, poetry, music, and humor; I'll sprinkle in questions and issues for comment and controversy. Every Friday, join me here for Naked Coffee with Diva Carla. This blog is a conversation. Please offer your comments, questions, opinions, and share your juice with Orgasmic Alchemy.

For your more personal questions, I also work with people privately. Please contact me about sessions or initiation.

Pinch Pot

Moist and firm and round

Choose a spot, make a dimple with your thumb

Turn the ball of clay and press, press, press

The dimple gets deeper, becomes a hole

Press the sides between thumb and fingers

Pinch turn pinch turn pinch turn

What was a firm round compact ball of clay

Is now an open empty vessel

Marked with the fingerprints of God

The Cauldron

My breath like turbulent eddies of water
scours the round emptiness of me
churning up a tangle of pleasure and grief.
How surprising that grief and pleasure blend like this.
I breathe, entranced by sensation through sleepless hours
till my cauldron is scoured clean and empty.

The Blue Moon fills me with light I can’t see.
This is my vessel of Alchemy.
