Deeply we know there is a magic that is connected to sex. And also that it’s deeply spiritual. Sacred. We know intuitively that it’s not appreciated in the right way in society. And also that it’s connected to many distortions and a lot of shame. Criminal acts even.
In ancient times women went off to a tent or place of isolation with other women during their moon cycles. This meant that their normal chores and duties were carried out by others. They rested and we’re tended to. Food was brought to them. Their blood was collected and ceremoniously returned to the earth or used in other ceremonious ways.
