Breathing in a circle refines your sexual energy and makes multi-orgasmic bliss a possibility within your whole body. This is a powerful way to exchange and harmonize energy with your intimate partner during subtle body lovemaking.
The Microcosmic orbit practice balances cool yin and warm yang energy: circulating creative energy in this way cultivates the etheric body and psychic centers, awaking the power of spiritual perception and creating a sense of wholeness. The orbit pulls you together when you feel scattered. It seals the chakra openings with neutral qi so you do not feel so exposed. It helps contain your energy, making you feel safe in your body.

It has incredible wisdom and can do amazing work when you trust and let it happen.
