Are you an Evolver? What is love?

Join us during the month of February, as Evolver explores conscious love, sensuality and intimacy in its many forms…

• Are you loving, and being loved, as deeply as you want?

• Have you wondered how you can offer and receive love, through your body and your whole being, more and more unconditionally?

• Would you like to tap into practices that blend the most profound and blissful tantric and mystical traditions with expanded consciousness?

• Would you like to live as love rather than just visit it from time to time?    

For the live, interactive video course “From Sex to Super-Consciousness: The Future of Love," host Adam Gilad has assembled 7 remarkable experts on the ways that sensuality and intimacy provide an ecstatic path to profound spiritual experience: Annie LallaAlex Allman,  Sera BeakMichael MirdadMarc GafniCarol Queen and Reid Mihalko.

With humor, with infinite heart, and with compassion for the fear and pain we all experience, we are going to explore Eros, sexuality, consciousness and vision. Snuggling with the juiciest, sexiest core of our intertwining bodies, and with the most blissed-out dissolution of our small selves into the awakening of our fullest expression as conscious beings, we will discover what we can evolve into as individuals, as lovers and as a species…

Sex is play.  Sex is surrender.  Sex is profound and dangerous and exhilarating discovery – of our truest selves and the selves of our lovers. 

Sex can be entertainment, distraction, obsession — or it can be revelation of our truest selves, our most infinite consciousness. Through our bodies touching, we can touch the divine.

Now you can join Adam and his guests for a 5-session live, interactive video course that will stoke your imagination and answer your questions. Each session will be a dialog between Adam and one or two featured guests. And you will be part of the discussion, able to ask your questions on camera, just like a Skype call.
