OUR SHOW With: Jenny Wade, Ph.D.
What could be better than sex?
How about lovemaking that sweeps people into new realities, producing altered states of consciousness a thousand times more powerful than the most earth-shattering orgasm!
Sex can be–is–much more than we ever imagined. Few people expect to encounter the Divine while making love, but it actually happens all the time. Probably one in every eight to twelve people will have a profound spiritual experience during sex at least once in their lives.
In a research project conducted by my guest, Dr. Jenny Wade, many lovers report that they have had spontaneous altered states that occur during lovemaking in which they seem to go beyond, or transcend, the boundaries of the natural world and the normal limitations of self. These happenings are so counter to normal experience that the vast majority of lovers interviewed said that they viewed them as spiritual encounters in which they tapped into divine forces.
Some of the transformational events reported were:
- Seeing visions. Experiencing waves of heat, energy and light.
- Feelings as though you are transported to other locations.
- Re-living past lives.
- Feeling as if you are dissolving into God.
- Being visited by gods and other avatars.
- Embodying spiritual forces, such as speaking in tongues.
Everybody has the potential to access other realities and spiritual experiences during sex.
On our show, we discuss a wide range of experiences that can happen, guidelines for how to respond when your partner is having a transcendent experience, what to do when disturbing things happen, and how these experiences can transform your life.
Jenny Wade Ph.D. is a developmental psychologist who specializes in researching naturally occurring altered states of consciousness. In her book, ” Transcendent Sex: When Lovemaking Opens the Veil” and on our show, Jenny discusses the results of extensive interviews she conducted with ordinary people who had unusual and profound transcendent, spiritual experiences in the course of making love. Her study shows that mystical experiences happen every day in the bedroom to a significant proportion of the population. Sacred Sex lives on.
