Do you make time for pleasure in your life?
Recently I ran a short, five day challenge for women to immerse themselves in various kinds of pleasure. It’s strange to think that simply generating some pleasurable activities in one’s life could be such a big undertaking, wrought with resistance and avoidance.
Five straight days is more than most people can muster up a daily act of pleasure. To my surprise, about fifteen women out of almost a hundred really went for it and reported their exuberant findings as well as their struggles with it. I didn’t expect so many heartfelt, transparent, gorgeous descriptions of what they were facing, and was so impressed.
I’ve been practicing pleasure, studying about pleasure, and teaching pleasure in various forms over the years, and what I’ve come to learn is that our culture simply does not value it. This fact alone can stop some women cold. Some of the struggles in the pleasure challenge were feeling guilty, too busy serving others, and difficulty finding time alone to do something pleasurable in their hectic days.
A very few participants were already practicing infusing pleasure into their lives as a way to heal and nurture themselves. Women were sharing all of the ways they found pleasure in life, ways they created more, and desires for even more. It was such a gorgeous thing to see women sharing and learning something so simple, yet so powerful.
There were deep realizations about how focusing on pleasure brought so much awareness of even more pleasure they’d never noticed. Vibrancy, deserving, worth, and even profound joy unfolded. New ideas, enthusiasm and even recipes for pleasure were shared.
I have no intention of closing this amazing group. With women joining daily, asking me what it is and how they can participate, we’ll continue to focus on pleasure. We’ll encourage each other to keep up the important work of enjoying life, honoring our bodies, reveling in our femininity, and opening to receiving more abundance. I’m convinced that the gateway of gratitude is primed by pleasure.
