I know it’s not the Full or New Moon but it’s been to many moons since I last wrote to you loves and had to share my heart with you today!
Everything is connected to sexual energy whether you’re in a place of embracing that aspect of yourself or denying it. No matter where you find yourself in the spectrum of sexual integrity and expression, allow yourself to question your beliefs about sexuality when the opportunity arises. It’s the creative energy that brought us here in the first place, it only makes sense to question its beauty and depth <3!
This past week, I got invited to 4 play parties, well one of them being a cuddle party which is not considered an official sex party. Being in the energy of conscious choice and consent is my favorite part about cuddle and sex parties, everything else is just cherries on top! 😉
When I was an exotic dancer aka stripper, I always had the choice to pick my clients, to move my body as I felt inspired to and to not compromise my worth no matter how many stacks of Benjamins were being offered. My sexual integrity was more important. My self worth and protecting my sacred energy was my practice and offering. This is what made this taboo filled work so empowering for me.
I lived some of the most powerful experiences being a modern Las Vegas “Devadasi” or a temple dancer in the best strip clubs in the US. As a dancer or as my teacher Anandha Ray refers to as a “shape shifter,” it’s been so important to me to allow my sexual energy to flow through me through dance. Not to seduce or look sexy but to just allow myself to be me and move out of the way at the same time.
Thanks to my 1 year Priestess of Isis program with Master Movement Director Anandha Ray, I’ve been able to integrate my deep love and passion for dance and merge it with my respect for sexual energy and the appreciation of its raw form.

One of the intentions I shared with Anandha was my desire to share this Devadasi energy with the world. With that being said, I’m offering Tantric Lap Devadasi Playshop. In this playshop you’ll learn tantric breathing techniques that’’ll help you be aware of your energetic body as well as sharing the Shamanic Fusion Intuitive Technique created by Anandha Ray herself that helps unlock the body completely.
So far I have one playshop scheduled in Washington DC next month and another one in LA sometime early 2018. See below for more info!
If you’re interested in the playshop in LA, please be on the lookout for that post on Instagram @ixchel_sandivel or feel free to email me!
