Dr. Ben Joffe - Dakinis, Consorts and Beyond Heteronormativity

Post by Könchok Thrinley »

This interview is quite fascinating, especially for the discussion of the non-heteronormative sexual practices. Also openly discussing abuse and sex with a guru, these are all topics that we should at least consider and discuss a little bit. I am so thankful to Dr Nida Chenagtsang for being so straighforward and modern.

Nearly all of the Guru Viking podcasts I've heard have been great. Shame he seems to have a small audience. Hopefully it will grow.
