Impostor syndrome.

You know, that little voice in your head that says, “Who do you think you are? You can’t do THAT! You'll never be as good as so-and-so. It's only a matter of time before everyone finds out you don't have a CLUE what you're doing.”

This is a show about that.

Producer, singer, mentor, storyteller, and urban meditation aficionado Andrea Klunder takes you inside the minds and hearts of artists, healers, creative entrepreneurs and anyone who's willing to take a risk, think outside the box, move beyond self-doubt to live their creative work, and live their best lives.

While recording this episode, I wrote down the following equation:

Communication + boundaries = freedom to explore and play

So, yeah...we’re talking about sex as self-care with Karen Yates, somatic sex educator as well as creator and host of Wild & Sublime, the live show and podcast that delivers a sexy spin on infotainment. 

Sex however is too narrow a term - at least by current, uniquely American standards. Erotic mindfulness is more expansive and inviting, focusing on openness and sensual pleasure rather than just the act.

If you’re like me - a full-grown, cis-gendered, sexually active adult - even PG-rated discussions about sex (like this one) still make your cheeks flame.

Karen, who’s a longtime member of Chicago’s sex-positive scene, has a knack for making frank discussions welcoming no matter where her audience falls on the sexual spectrum. “We talk about kink. We talk about vanilla sex. We talk about LGBTQ issues. We talk about just how to relate to each other.”

Did you catch that? Relating to each other and to self is Wild & Sublime’s main thrust. Pardon the pun but when you hang around with Karen, you can’t help it.

And if COVID has left you blissfully or woefully partner-free? Erotic mindfulness should be at the top of your self-care practice. “It's always good to build a new relationship with your body because the body gives so much information,” Karen says. “Bottom line, no matter where you come from, it's going to be an expansive, extraordinary exploration.”
