“And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make” The Beatles
A business failure has not been in my life. A relationship failure did happen, however I kept moving forward and my students didn’t even blink an eye. However I kept working on my pursuit of what I have to bring to the planet.
Entrepreneurial AH-HA Moment:
During the Clinton administration, I designed a Welfare to Work program to teach work ethics. For those who have three generations of being on welfare as a recipient, what would it be like to have the ethic of what it is to have a job and go to work. I won awards for those programs. With the change of administration, those contracts went away, so I took my hobby – which was sacred sexuality, I was studying Tantra – a few thousand years old set of practices and science, and I made that into my vocation. I said to myself, sex always sells so I’m going to sell that!
I’ve had the most fun because I get to talk to people about their most intimate situations about the oldest subject, sex. I get to talk to people, coach people, counsel people and be compassionate to people who need to talk to someone. That’s why I get invited all over the world to talk to people. I love my job.
I alluded to a new area – pursuing professional ball clubs. I’m working on a television treatment and two new films. I’ve been invited to co-teach with a neuropathic doctor who lives on the big island of Hawaii on the subject of bliss medicine. The GOE3 Team, the people who are going across the country with electric stations to charge electric cars I may become part of that effort as well. So there are some very exciting projects on the horizon. I have no limit as far as I’m concerned.

Sex and Happiness
OMG, yesterday was possibly the most exciting day of my life! The 3rd edition of my book, Sex and Happiness made it to Amazon Best Seller status in four countries on three continents! It placed #1 in the US, the UK, Canada and Australia. That makes me an International best Selling author!
Could hardly believe it. Could hardly breathe by the end of the day when the statistics came rolling in. It ranked in the top five book in all four countries under the categories Mysticism, Marriage, Yoga and Tantra, Parents and Relationships. A couple of those made me laugh. And yet, I could see the correlation between them and Sex and Happiness.
This 3rd edition is as yet only available in the Kindle version. Many people wrote to question me about that yesterday. My response was simply this, “You can download and app for reading on your smart phones. You do not necessarily need a Kindle device.”
Of course, Sex and Happiness: The Tantric Laws of Intimacy in paperback is still available here in my store and at Amazon as well for $19.99. If you prefer to own a physical book, don’t worry. I have plenty in stock and can ship to almost anywhere.
Thank you to all the people who supported me through the Best Seller Campaign. Special thanks goes out to Niki Faldemolaei, Sandi Masori and Steve Laurvick, my awesome marketing team.

Winter Solstice Puja with Laurie Handlers
What is a Puja? Puja in Sanskrit means reverence, honor and adoration or worship. In this ancient ceremony men honor and bless women as the Goddess. Women honor and bless men as the God. It’s a beautiful way to show respect and experience deep connection.
Why is a Puja so special? During Puja, each participant is fully present in every moment while making offerings to the God or Goddess in each person. Each participant honors himself or herself by attending!
Puja is very special to me! It was in just this ceremony many years ago that my life shifted never to go back to the old way of being for me. I experienced myself as being love, being worthy of love, being loved! I cried my way through the first go round when the women rotated to each man and the men kissed our feet and our bellies. I certainly had never experienced anything like this before! Somewhere in the middle of the ritual, I decided to make this life my reality – men honoring women and women honoring men. Soon thereafter Butterfly Workshops was born.
This is a Winter Solstice event in Phoenix will be spectacular!
If you are in Arizona, please come and join me! I will be honored to have you there.
When Saturday 12/21
