NOTE:
At some point in time due to a demand of the Body Electric School I took this blog article down.

February 28, 2014 – I am placing  it back on the internet as I feel it is a very important part of my experience, learning and education. This article tells the world my side of the story. I feel I have been bullied and forced into keeping silent. I am placing this back onto my personal page and letting it speak for itself. If you have questions contact me. As always LOVE Phillip

An offering…

How I got to be where I am today and my departure from the Body Electric School or … being jetisoned into reality.

June 2012, just a few days before the Power Surrender and Intimacy workshop, here in Toronto, I was told by the school administrative assistant that I was “irrelevant”. This action on the part of the school and the subsequent defense by the school’s director clearly pointed out to me that I was not respected. I became very aware, very quickly, that in-fact for all of the work that I had done in my community and for the promotion of the school over the five years that I was coordinator, that I was held in contemptuous regard by the administrative staff and the director.

Shortly after being told that I was “irrelevant” I resigned from my position as local Coordinator for the Body Electric School in Toronto. The struggle had become intolerable. My resignation was tendered for two basic reasons.

  • First, my values and the values of the director of the school were at direct odds. This confrontational relationship meant that everything was a struggle and that bringing the workshops to fruition was not happening with either ease or the respect for client care that I demand.
  • Second, the school was misrepresenting itself as a business entity in Canada. This misrepresentation was putting me in serious jeopardy in relation to my business and my financial integrity. All of this in reference to the American company not being registered with Revenue Canada, in order to conduct business, collect payments and remit taxes in Canada. All this in addition to the fact that all payments for Canadian workshops were to be transacted in Canadian funds and despite all reassurance this was not happening.

Simply put, I was unable to accommodate what was being asked of me and I was unable to do what I had committed to do. All that I had done with relative ease for the past five years had fallen apart. I was unable to present to areas of my community that were interested in the work, I was unable to sell what had become an overpriced commodity, and I was unable to reconcile the lack of communication and inept client care that was being delivered to me by the school’s administration.

Alas, happily I am now working on my own. I have an exciting and dynamic lineup of workshops for the fall. The new work that I present has been inspired by Joseph Kramer, the founder of the school, and many of the school’s faculty, who have taught me well over the years. I am glad that I am able to present to areas of my community that are receptive to the work. I am relieved that I am able to price the work in a way that is affordable and reflects the needs of my surrounding community. I am delighted that I am able to work day-to-day in a transparent way without the struggle and encumbrance of an organization that felt unstable.

I am very glad to be where I am now. I am grateful for the release and expansion into the breadth and depth of operating a heart centered business.

If you would like more information about the workshops that I am producing, the events that I am facilitating, or the experiential body awareness programs I offer, or if you would simply like to know how you can become more a part of the experimental, experiential, educational, and embodied erotic community here in Toronto please check my website atwww.phillipcoupal.ca (click on the calendar button), drop me an email atphillip@phillipcoupal.ca or call me at 416-557-7312.

Generated with love, Namaste.

When asked this morning what excites me in my life…

  • The JOY that I feel every morning when I wake up! ♥ 
  • The gratitude that I feel every morning when I discover that I am breathing! ♥
  • The bliss that I feel every morning when I choose to LIVE the next moment fully! ♥

YES! ♥ Oh yes, there were other thoughts that flew into my head but the simple JOY of waking up was what resonated in my heart!

The EDGE…

Sometimes I fell like I will tumble over and sometimes I feel like I am balanced and able to negotiate my way without loosing my balance…

The edge is always there and I simply need to proceed. What is the worst that could happen? I could fall over or I could keep wandering along being fearful.

So I will dance on the edge and be naive and full of joy. Am I in denial of the edge? No! I am simply choosing to stay within myself and not let the outside elements affect me or make my experience something that is outside of me.

Today I will remain within my vessel, my integral space. I will dance and sing and be joyful when someone chooses to join. I will trust that I am being watched over and taken care of.

What I see everyday…

I enjoy this business card so much. I don’t really know why I enjoy it, I have never really thought about it. But there it is, I look up . I enjoy the raw quality of this broken masculine image looking back at me.

I like that phrase … broken masculine image… ♥

This is also about the joy I have at having a camera in my hand all the time. I like where this photographic journal is going and the expression that it is generating. I love the ease of use.

My little tale for the day…

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
Once upon a time in a great castle, a Prince’s daughter grew up happy and contented, in spite of a jealous stepmother. She was very pretty, with blue eyes and long black hair. Her skin was delicate and fair, and so she was called Snow White. Everyone was quite sure she would become very beautiful. Though her stepmother was a wicked woman, she too was very beautiful, and the magic mirror told her this every day, whenever she asked it.

“Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the loveliest lady in the land?” The reply was always; “You are, your Majesty,” until the dreadful day when she heard it say, “Snow White is the loveliest in the land.” The stepmother was furious and, wild with jealousy, began plotting to get rid of her rival. Calling one of her trusty servants, she bribed him with a rich reward to take Snow White into the forest, far away from the Castle. Then, unseen, he was to put her to death. The greedy servant, attracted to the reward, agreed to do this deed, and he led the innocent little girl away. However, when they came to the fatal spot, the man’s courage failed him and, leaving Snow White sitting beside a tree, he mumbled an excuse and ran off. Snow White was all alone in the forest.

Night came, but the servant did not return. Snow White, alone in the dark forest, began to cry bitterly. She thought she could feel terrible eyes spying on her, and she heard strange sounds and rustlings that made her heart thump. At last, overcome by tiredness, she fell asleep curled under a tree.

Snow White slept fitfully, wakening from time to time with a start and staring into the darkness round her. Several times, she thought she felt something, or somebody touch her as she slept.

At last, dawn woke the forest to the song of the birds, and Snow White too, awoke. A whole world was stirring to life and the little girl was glad to see how silly her fears had been. However, the thick trees were like a wall round her, and as she tried to find out where she was, she came upon a path. She walked along it, hopefully. On she walked till she came to a clearing. There stood a strange cottage, with a tiny door, tiny windows and a tiny chimney pot. Everything about the cottage was much tinier than it ought to be. Snow White pushed the door open.

“l wonder who lives here?” she said to herself, peeping round the kitchen. “What tiny plates! And spoons! There must be seven of them, the table’s laid for seven people.” Upstairs was a bedroom with seven neat little beds. Going back to the kitchen, Snow White had an idea.

“I’ll make them something to eat. When they come home, they’ll be glad to find a meal ready.” Towards dusk, seven tiny men marched homewards singing. But when they opened the door, to their surprise they found a bowl of hot steaming soup on the table, and the whole house spick and span. Upstairs was Snow White, fast asleep on one of the beds. The chief dwarf prodded her gently.

“Who are you?” he asked. Snow White told them her sad story, and tears sprang to the dwarfs’ eyes. Then one of them said, as he noisily blew his nose:

“Stay here with us!”

“Hooray! Hooray!” they cheered, dancing joyfully round the little girl. The dwarfs said to Snow White:

“You can live here and tend to the house while we’re down the mine. Don’t worry about your stepmother leaving you in the forest. We love you and we’ll take care of you!” Snow White gratefully accepted their hospitality, and next morning the dwarfs set off for work. But they warned Snow White not to open the door to strangers.

Meanwhile, the servant had returned to the castle, with the heart of a roe deer. He gave it to the cruel stepmother, telling her it belonged to Snow White, so that he could claim the reward. Highly pleased, the stepmother turned again to the magic mirror. But her hopes were dashed, for the mirror replied: “The loveliest in the land is still Snow White, who lives in the seven dwarfs’ cottage, down in the forest.” The stepmother was beside herself with rage.

“She must die! She must die!” she screamed. Disguising herself as an old peasant woman, she put a poisoned apple with the others in her basket. Then, taking the quickest way into the forest, she crossed the swamp at the edge of the trees. She reached the bank unseen, just as Snow White stood waving goodbye to the seven dwarfs on their way to the mine.

Snow White was in the kitchen when she heard the sound at the door: KNOCK! KNOCK!

“Who’s there?” she called suspiciously, remembering the dwarfs advice.

“I’m an old peasant woman selling apples,” came the reply.

“I don’t need any apples, thank you,” she replied.

“But they are beautiful apples and ever so juicy!” said the velvety voice from outside the door.

“I’m not supposed to open the door to anyone,” said the little girl, who was reluctant to disobey her friends.

“And quite right too! Good girl! If you promised not to open up to strangers, then of course you can’t buy. You are a good girl indeed!” Then the old woman went on.

“And as a reward for being good, I’m going to make you a gift of one of my apples!” Without a further thought, Snow White opened the door just a tiny crack, to take the apple.

“There! Now isn’t that a nice apple?” Snow White bit into the fruit, and as she did, fell to the ground in a faint: the effect of the terrible poison left her lifeless instantaneously.

Now chuckling evilly, the wicked stepmother hurried off. But as she ran back across the swamp, she tripped and fell into the quicksand. No one heard her cries for help, and she disappeared without a trace.

Meanwhile, the dwarfs came out of the mine to find the sky had grown dark and stormy. Loud thunder echoed through the valleys and streaks of lightning ripped the sky. Worried about Snow White they ran as quickly as they could down the mountain to the cottage.

There they found Snow White, lying still and lifeless, the poisoned apple by her side. They did their best to bring her around, but it was no use.

They wept and wept for a long time. Then they laid her on a bed of rose petals, carried her into the forest and put her in a crystal coffin.

Each day they laid a flower there.

Then one evening, they discovered a strange young man admiring Snow White’s lovely face through the glass. After listening to the story, the Prince (for he was a prince!) made a suggestion.

“If you allow me to take her to the Castle, I’ll call in famous doctors to waken her from this peculiar sleep. She’s so lovely I’d love to kiss her!” He did, and as though by magic, the Prince’s kiss broke the spell. To everyone’s astonishment, Snow White opened her eyes. She had amazingly come back to life! Now in love, the Prince asked Snow White to marry him, and the dwarfs reluctantly had to say good bye to Snow White.

From that day on, Snow White lived happily in a great castle. But from time to time, she was drawn back to visit the little cottage down in the forest.

Joy FULL – Filled with Joy.

When I purposefully put Joy into my thoughts, consciousness, heart, I can feel the change. I can feel my mood shift.

When I feel myself becoming filled with anxiety, overwhelm or debilitating administrative thoughts, I think of something joyful, playful, something that will make me smile and I can feel the shift the change. Within that change I can begin to fill with dreamy thoughts, big thoughts and much more affirming material. I can take a breath and change my mind.

I love my mind, I can change it in a moment. I can fill, evacuate and refill all within my grasp, my ability to be powerful.

Today I will be Joy Full. I will continually fill my mind and my being with Joy.

AH HA Sexy Passion – Passion is a playmate.

I seem not to be able to rid myself of passion. Passion follows me and is in me wherever I go. Passion moves through my work, my play and my day to day life, as well as my dreams. Living passionately and full-out is not natural to me. I only came to expressing passion and being passionate after finding permission inside of myself.

When you’re at peace with yourself and you love your self, it’s virtually impossible for you to do things to yourself that are destructive.
When you get enough inner peace and feel really positive about yourself, it’s almost impossible for you to be controlled or manipulated by anyone else.
the more you extend kindness to yourself the more it will become your natural response to others
A secret of abundance is to stop focussing on what you do not have and shift your consciousness to an appreciation for all that you do have
No limit people are so in charge that they can trust their instincts, be childlike, be creative and do anything that makes sense to them.

No limit people are so in charge that they can trust their instincts, be childlike, be creative and do anything that makes sense to them.

Wayne Dyer

The idea of living in passion is relatively new to me as a 55 year old man. A few years ago my passion scared me, I did not know how to live with this part of me that seemed so out of control, so huge, so fierce. Today I watch for the fierceness and enjoy the eruption as passion plays out of me.  Today I thrive on the richness and the fulness of expression that passion allows for me.

Today I will surf in the flood of creativity that my passion brings and I will live without limiting that abundance of fresh, new and recurring old. Today I will let the passion flow, erupt, shoot and drizzle.

Today I will be full and playful and enjoy the freedom I feel without limits, living in joyful, blissful passion.

Pink has an energetic resonance with me.

Funny that which I was so ashamed of many years ago can rise up in me to be  such a powerful symbol of strength and energy. The colour pink is to me what I imagine totem figures are to some. I am constantly drawn to how this colour brings a smile to my face, relaxes me, stimulates me. Yes I know those words that just came out are contradictory… there you go. Some things, some external influences can have mysterious powers.

I adore what the colour pink does for me!

Pink PUMPS ME!
Today I will make sure that something that is PINK will be against my skin, reminding me…
 
 

Holding the gate open.

Ushering in another seeker, holding the gate open as another man moves out  and away from shame. I hope his life can be blessed with JOY. Today I had the singular pleasure of living and being in an Exquisite Connection.

Thanks Sister Merry Peter for the reminder that everything is a reflection. All that comes before me is very much a reflection or myself.  Tonight I had the treat of seeing and meeting some of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. The work of these men as Sisters is an inspiration and a delightful blessing to the world.

I am happy and glad in this moment. Joyful to be brazen. Ecstatic to be free.
