Because of our wisdomRebecca Lowrie, The Sexual Alchemist, reads the poem ‘Because Of Our Wisdom’ by Hafiz on

I discovered the poetry of Hafiz about 10 years ago, right around the same time I started exploring and working with conscious sexuality.

Hafiz was a 14th century Persian poet, writer, mystic and spiritual teacher. His writings explore love, life and intimacy, in particular with intimacy with the Divine. His beautiful, thought-provoking poetry has been known to inspire other writers such as Emerson, Nietzsche and apparently even Arthur Conan Doyle.

I have been trying out the new app for the last couple of weeks and have already made some incredible connections there. The app is sort of like Twitter except it’s all audio instead of writing. I was inspired one morning to read some Hafiz and wanted to share it with you here. I hope you enjoy it!

Because of our wisdom, we will travel

Far for love.

All movement is a sign of


Most speaking really says,

‘I am hungry to know you.’

Every desire of your body is holy;

Every desire of your body is


Dear one,

Why wait until you re dying

To discover that divine
