The internationally renowned sexologist Maggie Tapert has been leading her own brand of unique seminars and workshops for more than twenty years. Her pioneering work in the field of female sexuality is based on a profound focus on feminine pleasure and desire. Maggie Tapert was born in the USA and has spent most of her adult life in Switzerland. She is a mother, grandmother and has a private practice for coaching and mentoring in Zurich. Her autobiography, PLEASURE, was first published in 2012.
Intensification of Life
Introspection during our enforced shutdown was an intensification of what is my normal process. My life’s work with female empowerment is a result of many years of examining my own inner themes. And my most profound inner theme remains a never-ending quest for more freedom! I felt that actually having “permission” this past year to spend more time in the quiet of my own inner sanctum was a rare gift.
I am a self-employed coach and author so my work routine was only slightly altered. Professionally, I discovered that coaching women online instead of in my practice room, I could open up my work to a much larger international clientele. I discovered that women everywhere want to grow and expand their sexual and emotional potential.
I don’t identify with an external idea of freedom. I know that many people felt “unfree” but that’s just a concept and it doesn’t suit me. It is true that in 2019 I could stop any time for a coffee in my favorite café. In 2020 I could not. All things change. This too has changed and I embrace the return of a more open public space.
I have travelled professionally and privately all my life. Now I’m happy to stay home. The thought of waiting for hours at the airport only to then be jammed into a too small seat in a stuffy airplane with hundreds of other folks. No thanks. I adore sitting comfortably in the peace of my garden with a good book. No more spontaneous trips for me.
I hope that this past year will have a profound effect on our society. Hopefully we will realise that, no matter the circumstances, we are always free to embrace and celebrate the life we are given. This is a profound freedom – the freedom to choose happiness. We passed through a challenging year of change. Let’s focus on what is new and wanting to be born.
