THE ORANGE SPACE

Orange is the colour of Pleasure. It represents the space of the moment. We enter it when we are present in our bodies and connected to our senses through sight, hearing, scent, taste, and touch. This space exists not only in obvious moments of pleasure, but whenever we choose to become aware of life’s sensations.

the Orange Book

The Orange Book - Ode to Pleasure is the third book by Helene Lundbye Petersen. It is devoted to the body and its five senses as embodied by a Goddess of Pleasure. The book follows the story of this Goddess as questions posed by a Goddess of Wisdom (as told in The Blue Book - Ode to Wisdom) force her to confront time and its inherent relativity. A Goddess of Pleasure must realise that precious moments are lost when we fail to make space for our senses to unfold. Over the course of this contemporary myth, a Goddess of Pleasure reconciles body and mind, integrating both to honour each moment, and then, let it go.
