It’s time to transition to season three! In season one, the United States climate of suppression, led us to create a podcast designed to amplify voices that are often suppressed. We brought on the most impactful sex positive social justice leaders and icons that we know from many walks of life. Each guest got two episodes. The first is an intimate deep dive in which each guest tells their life story from traumatic struggle to purpose and power. The second episode is even more intimate as we interview guests regarding the previous episode. We were surprised to discover how similar each person’s struggle was despite each person being very different demographically. Despite season one having such profound heart, once that was revealed, it was time for season two. Season two is about love that gets pushed into the shadow; kinky love, non-monogamous love, neurodiverse love and love between two porn performers. These communities are often seen by the masses in a de-humanizing way and in an overly sexualized way. Focusing on love is one of the best was to humanize these amazing populations. We accomplished that! Now, we are ready for season three. Open Deeply has always been about stripping away our social conditioning and shame (especially sexual shame). Anything that keeps us small, constricted and disconnected like a flower tight in the bud. This podcast is simultaneously, also about discovering our sexual truth, our authenticity, and anything that allows us to open deeply into our human potential. As Anais Nin says, “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” In season three, we will continue to discuss sexual authenticity and anything that blocks sexual authenticity, but we will also branch out into other topics, like plant medicine and animism. Upcoming guests might speak on topics such as autoimmune diseases or naturopathy, any topic that might allow us to heal and reconnect to what really matters. Furthermore, we will continue to try to give you tools, so that you will feel strong enough to keep waking up into your full sexual, mind, body, and spirit potential. We hope that you will join us as we expand our process and continue to open deeply.
