Have you ever considered yoga as a conscious guide on how to live? What about as a way to explore your sexuality, or how to die? Today’s guest and I cover these otherwise taboo subjects and dive into how learning to let go and cultivate intimacy can be at the base of it all.

Susan Marrufo has been a yoga certified instructor since 2009, when she received her first 500-hour certification in Thailand after studying the classical yogic scriptures and esoteric tantric philosophy. Susan has since completed a residential internship with the Kripalu School of Yoga, where she taught in and project managed several Kripalu yoga teacher trainings as well as received her 2nd 500-hr teacher training certification from the Kripalu School of Yoga. She is now living in Guatemala and is the founder of the Samarasa Center.

Join Susan and I for a discussion about self-inquiry and healing our trauma, how to recover from sexual trauma and/or abuse, and how death and sex and self-inquiry are intertwined. This episode will challenge you and make you think about how you understand your body in all new ways.

What You’ll Discover:

  • How Susan began work in yoga, sex, and death.
  • What Jnana yoga is and how it can change your life.
  • Why feeling is so scary and how to deal with that.
  • How yoga can allow us to do self-inquiry and heal our emotions.
  • Where people learn about sexuality and why that impacts how you interact with yourself and others.
  • How talking about death and sexuality can free us up to live fully.
  • The importance of getting to a place where your possibilities are limitless.
