  • 6.39 Because whilst sex almost always involves an aspect of sensuality, as a deeply sensual in your body process, sensuality does not always have to involve sex.

Tantra, Sensuality, and Spirituality with Henika Patel

Hello you gorgeous human being!

Today I am in conversation with someone who you are going to LOVE!

She is the founder of the School of Sensual Arts and author of the brand new book Sensual. She is one of my hay house sisters and has the most gorgeous energy about her which I cannot wait to share with you.

In this conversation we are diving deep into what it means to live a sensual life and what it means to be able to tap into that feeling of aliveness.

We talk about the difference between sexuality and sensuality, why so many of us feel cut off and what are some of the tools, techniques and practices that you can start adhering to in your lives now in order to create this really exquisite feeling of deep connection, deep belonging and intimacy with both yourself and the lives that we are living.

So without further ado allow me to introduce you to Henika Patel.
