Dr. Ananya discusses her journey with sacred sexuality, her career arc from Ph.D. bio-chemists to integrated sexuality coach, and what an ethics of consent could look like.
Show Notes

Dr. Ananya shares about her training as a Ph. D chemist and work in the biotech field and how she felt something crucial was missing in her life. She quit her job and traveled around the world and eventually found her spiritual path of tantra and sacred sexuality. She lived for four years on an island in Thailand, focusing on spiritual practice and eventually left that community when the shadow side became impossible to ignore. We discuss some of the scandals that have rocked spiritual communities in the Buddhist world and in other traditions. And we talk about what genuine consent and respect could look like in the context of a sex positive spirituality.

She shares with us some practical tips and practices, including the eight keys to beginning a practice of sacred sexuality.

She now works as an integrated sexuality coach and leads workshops and groups.
