Lily Rothrock commented on June 2014 - May the Light be with you! 2014-07-04 09:13:00 -0700Hi Marcella!
We don’t have any local facilitators in Colorado (yet), but if you’d like to organize a workshop, a Practitioner will come facilitate for you!
Please read the Organizer FAQ under ‘Method’ to learn a bit more about the organizer process. If you’re interested, we can send you a packet with more detailed information.
Thanks for your inquiry! We’d love to come to Colorado!
Lily Rothrock commented on Don't Push Your Baby Out, as per Coaching! 2014-06-22 22:36:10 -0700Thank you so much for sharing! This is it! Yes!!! And bless your heart, Francoise, for the work you are doing in the world!
Lily Rothrock commented on Circumcision: The history and the False Beliefs 2014-06-22 22:31:38 -0700Hello, Shelley! Thank you for your taking the time to express your feelings about this article! I’ll be brief in my attempt to explain why circumcision might be an experience that a baby boy would object if he could.
Imagine if someone, without asking you, ties you on your back, spreads your legs and slowly cuts off your clitoris without any anesthetics. Now triple the sensation, as clitoris has, on average, about 8 000 of very specific erogenous nerve endings and the foreskin has over 20 000. Now multiply it about 100 times, because a newborn is generally about a 100 times more sensitive than an average adult, who had plenty of time to dull the sensory antennae. How does that feel by now?
There are thousands of men out there right now, as we speak, objecting their circumcision and suing the doctors who performed this most unnecessary by all medical standards surgery, which is not recommended by any medical academy in the world.
I also never said that a man is going to lose his capacity for wanting sex. I only said that the quality of it is greatly compromised, as the foreskin is the organ specifically governing the ability to know pleasure and give a man an adequate reading of where his sexual partner is on the pleasure scale. So he is not just being horny, but is able to learn the art of Love-making. This is what the 20 000 erogenous nerve endings are for.

"My core cry was one of the most therapeutic experiences I have ever had. Lily gave me exactly what I needed to tap into deep, painful emotion and release it. Having witnesses and group support made the experience even more powerful. The amount of energy released and coursing through my body during and after my core cry was staggering. I felt immensely powerful and at peace afterwards. I cannot thank Lily enough for facilitating such an intense and healing experience."
- Katie Moore, 2014
