If sex or sexuality is going to be integrated well into our lives, it needs to be something that’s integrated and that we can hold in a conscious, intentional, powerful way.Ty Mansfield
With how many distractions there are in the world around us, learning to sit still and observe our own emotions and bodies can be quite difficult. In this episode, Creed and Crishelle talk with Ty Mansfield about how the still of practicing mindfulness can improve our lives, whether we are overcoming pornography or just learning how to handle our emotions.
In this episode:
- Mindfulness increases the power to act and be in the moment.
- Sitting with emotions provides the ability to work through shame.
- Understanding about ourselves as physical, sexual, and spiritual beings can come through mindfulness.
