We also want for some things to happen, but they don’t no matter how much effort we put into them. The 1001 Nights tells us about a story that has been given to us and that always has the same result. It also provides us with the Opportunity to write a new story.
Sexuality can become a story that goes beyond the things that put an end to a relationship, a job, a business, against our wishes. Some things die or aren’t even born in our reality because we’re following the stories we’ve been told about ourselves or reality, which we accept without even questioning it. For sexaulity to go beyond that, we need to reveal that occult story we were told, and decide what Story each one of us wants to create, in order to make our relationships to be something worth remembering in all the fields of our lives. We learn to make Art out of our intimacy.
The 1001 Magic Nights among women are a new, vivid experience, full of humor and depth, where we’ll learn to think, listen, question and ask about the things we think we can, know, have and must do, in a continuous creative night.
