–Sensheant Magazine Interviews Lindsay Hagmen and Dr. SerenaGaia, Cont’d . . .
Collaborative alliances are key elements in the EcoSEXual RƎVO˩ution.
Lindsay Hagamen and Dr. SerenaGaia were blessed with one such collaborative alliance. Ecosexuality: When Nature Inspires the Arts of Love is its offshoot. This creative partnership unfolded over a period of two years deeply empowering each of us. We contributed to each other professionally, personally, and ecosystemically. We overcame physical distances though digital technologies that bring people virtually close to each other. We overcame cultural differences by practicing empathy with one another. We overcame generational distance by appreciating the existential experience that characterizes each one of us. We treated each other like a mother and daughter who have good boundaries, are good friends, and are open with each other about their respective amorous and ecosexual lives.
We built a powerful collaborative alliance as
we communicated with the authors in the book’s team, and learned to appreciate their diversities and commonalities. We put our minds together, connecting brain waves as we learned to coauthor and co-write. Learning is very erotic as knowledge is love and power. The main sexual organs that sit between our respective ears became intertwined in the energy of co-creation. Our minds became symbiotically empowered. Our trust and collaborative power grew as we appreciated the ways that our respective skills, talents, practices, and experiences combined into the realization of the project.
Our collaboration manifested the expression of various forms of ecosexual love. For example, Lindsay accepted the mentorship of SerenaGaia because she valued SerenaGaia’s earned wisdom and appreciated the opportunity to hone intellectual skills within a creative partnership that embraced empowered sexual expression. SerenaGaia felt recognized as a second-generation sex-positive feminist successful in opening up spaces of self-expression for women of her own generation, and
committed to empower subsequent generations too. As leaders in a project that requires intergenerational partnerships between women of different world regions, ages, origins, and cultures, we realized that empowering women’s sexuality is key to generating the broad societal changes that the ecosexual movement envisions. As our collaborative alliance evolved, we realized the value of combining a fresh, crisp talent with a wise, seasoned one. Our emotional partnership deepened as we acknowledged each other as beings alive by the force of Eros, united in our shared love for Gaia, and empowered to channel the force of Eros toward reverence for all forms of life.
