16. How can we heal the fear of betrayal and the loss of a loved one?

18 and Closing: Then as our final request would you give us some guidance, perhaps in the form of a visualization or affirmation to inspire us to love ourselves and one another more freely?
STUDY GROUP READING #364

15. Is there a difference between sex in marriage and sex outside of marriage?

23. Some people have an understanding of Tantra which says that it is important to not ejaculate during the orgasm and that there is a higher level of cosmic orgasm that happens if this is held back. Can you comment on this?
