The Jewish Talmud and Sex
In the Talmud, R. Chanina remarked, “I have learned much from my teachers, more from my colleagues, and the most from my students” (Ta’anis 7a).
Today a client realised that he had used the notion of “passion” to disguise his tendency to be quick. He learnt how much pleasure there is in slowing things down….and breathing. It made me realise how much we create narratives to avoid noticing aspects of our experience which might disturb us.
