The Adventures of Tantrachick…


Wow! I have not been on the internet or connected to any power source since I last posted! Living off grid has drastically changed everything about my life and a lot about me and how I perceive the world…

I don’t have much time, so I’ll get right down to the nitty gritty…We have overhauled out little 400 square foot home, added 1800 gallons worth of water storage, built two tree forts and one “hobbit fort”…in addition, we are fixing the ruts in our driveway, clearing out and organizing our work shed, harvesting wood for winter, working odd jobs to keep afloat, and enjoying the presence and peace of mind that off grid/back to the land living provides.

An interesting aspect of living this way is how much of an influence nature has on my sex life! Mountain and I have been sneaking off on “nature walks” with our little sexcapade set up (blanket, drinks, candles, etc.)…we find ourselves making love in nature…lost in the primal act of love while losing ourselves equally in our primal setting…

I have seen more sunrises and sunsets that ever before…felt the wind and sun on my skin….watched little critters (jack rabbits, prairie dogs, coyotes, elk, etc.) roaming on or near our ranch and I have done more physical labor in the past couple of months than I ever have in my entire life!

I cannot begin to express how simple, yet challenging this lifestyle is. I have moments where I feel I might cry because it is so silent…moments I might burst into laughter because it is so silent…my emotions are complex. Sometimes I feel the ecstasy of wilderness…sometimes the harshness…

There are moments of fear (late night coyote right beside my tent…) moments of joy (attending a local clothing optional sweat, exiting the sweat free and naked…showering under fresh, cold water)…moments of passion (making love under a thousand year old juniper tree)…moments of sadness (grieving my healing practice while I am in survival mode)…

The local rumor about me is that I am a Canadian actress who has moved here to escape fame…I cannot seem to change this perception…I find it hilarious…I keep saying “seriously, I am a writer, a blogger and a healer, but not an actress!”…the local response is…sure, that’s what all actresses would say…so, apparently I will have to accept this interesting perception people have of me…I definitely do not fit in, but people are still friendly…thank goodness!

Well, I need to go pick up my daughter from the art gallery where she is currently showing her art…much love to you all…from my heart to yours…Joy

    It was so nice of you to keep us all informed about you…I miss your presence online…but somehow, ‘feel’ your presence in the world more now that I know you and your family are out there doing what you are doing. All my best to you and Mountain and the kids! Hope you have time to dance still! Under the stars! 😉 xo

      Some days it’s crazy making…chaos and intense…sometimes the most beautiful and pure exsistence! You are so right! Much love, Joy
