Hand Caress Meditation

0.00 3.00

The hand is the most active part of your body. A small finger injury will remind us of how often we use our hands in a single hour. Cooking, keyboarding, holding our phones, dressing, bathing. We even think with our hands. They are never still. The hand gives far more than it receives. Even in rest, it is more ready to react than relax. But notice how welcoming it receives sensations when relieved of all its duties. The Hand Caress Meditation is the perfect place to begin as it will replenish the desire to explore all the tactile sensations you and your partner are about to give and receive. As the active partner, allow yourself to experience touch in a new way, shifting your awareness away from what you imagine your partner is feeling to the actual sensations you are experiencing.

These seven meditations are designed to guide you through the progressive stages of physical connection, beginning with safety and relaxation to heightened phases of erotic arousal. After taking time and taking turns to complete each step, we are confident you and your partner will no longer view sex merely as something you occasionally do, but rather as a source of generating creative energy. What we offer is a concrete and time-tested tool to increase desire and establish an ecstatic foundation for healing trauma and restoring connection.

General Instructions

This is a special time to be with your partner and permit yourself to be expressive and sensual. Although these caress meditations can be done in any order, we recommended that you initially practice them in sequence. Decide who is going to be the active partner and the receiving partner. Afterward, you will switch roles. Create a soothing environment that establishes safety and deep relaxation. Dim the lights, draw the curtains. Silence your phones, lock the door. Set aside at least 30 minutes with the option to take longer if the meditation launches you into deeper exploration. At the end of each turn, take a moment to share your impressions and feelings. Refrain from criticism, sarcasm, or judgment, even if your partner did not follow the guided instructions exactly. Meditation is not about doing it perfectly. Erotic arousal is a type of hypnotic trance of heightened vulnerability. Speak kindly while occupying this tender space. Tactfully explain what you did and did not like. Be specific. Use descriptions such as ticklish, comforting, hot, cold, silky, coarse. Take turns speaking and listening just as you took turns receiving and giving touch.
