Venturing through my first festival with Alorah Inanna, Intimacy Expert and LIB speaker, and Craig Ruble (aka Rubio), a student of Alorah's teachings, fostered a fascinating observation of human dynamics. Recorded in an SUV surrounded by 30,000 campers inspired a conversation about east coast vs. west coast dating, sexual vs. sensational touch and how many are searching & sorting for "The One." All around us people participated in yoga, educational seminars, spiritual ceremonies, live music, DJs, dance parties - many high on life or a variety of drugs. As upload this episode I'm left thinking, what if all of us - thousands - were stuck by that lake for six months? Would we then find who or what we're seeking? Hmm.
Whether home in New York or Los Angeles, I find myself gravitating towards those with more life experience who appear enlightened. Driven by curiosity, I want access to their knowledge. Alorah Inanna, age 69, radiates Goddess energy. Her long gray hair, glowing skin, and white sheer wrapped gown make heads turn. I first noticed her at events and in pictures on social media. I wanted to know her. Alorah began working with the plant medicine, Ayashausa, in the 80ies. Guided by the Divine, she and her now deceased husband guided thousands of people towards more fulfilling relationships for over a decade. Now, at her scared space, a Temple in Marina Del Rey, CA, where we recorded this episode, Alorah guides singles and couples through sensual, not sexual, experiences. Alorah talks, as I listen intently, about why society is touch-starved, the difference between liquid and non-liquid contact, and how not talking provides an opportunity for deeper connection. Hear the messages dropped. What will you pick up?
