Face Caress Meditation: Step 2

3.00

The face responds to touch in surprisingly subtle ways. As often as we touch our faces, the sensation of someone else using their fingertips to explore the contours of our jawline, forehead, eyebrows, nose, and lips can make us feel more seen and cherished than words or other forms of touch. Hold the entire face between two palms as if it were a priceless object of art. The experience of adoration begins with the face. Approach this session with curiosity and reverence.

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.
