In the video below I share the second installment of my Origin of a Priestess tale.

I call it: "Getting Funky with Jesus."

Now, I'm positive some of you reading this might be like, um, don't talk to me about Jesus.

But hear me out: as folks living in the so-called "West" in 2022 (if you're reading this on a screen, you are to at least some degree part of "the West"), Jesus is an unavoidable part of our lineage. I'm not talking about Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior. I'm talking about Jesus is an energy, an ancestral force--a cosmic energy like gravity, hunger, the wind--that has profoundly impacted the world, and still impacts us now whether you identify as a "believer", Christian, religious, or not.

The fact that parking is free on Sundays (the Christian Sabbath) as well as recent actions of the Supreme Court are evidence to this.

Let me be clear that I have no interest in proselytizing or conversion. I have no allegiance to "the Church" and was perfectly happy having left it back when I was 22.

However, my particular journey was one of having to re-encounter Jesus in a different context than the one I was given, to reckon with the fact and impact of my relational and ancestral entanglement with Christianity.

What this opened up for me was an encounter with an energy I knew intuitively to be Jesus, but that showed up for me in a completely new way: as the Erotic life force--that is, that essence of sensual vitality, magnetism and body-embracing love. This unlocked something really important for me in my relationship to my ancestry, my own self, the "masculine" essence, my vocational path, and the wider web of life.
