Path of the Sexual Shaman: documentary
The Sacred Prostitute / Magdalene Unveiled: 2-DVD documentary set
Women of the Light: The New Sacred Prostitute book
In 1995 I envisioned, edited, and published WOMEN OF THE LIGHT: THE NEW SACRED PROSTITUTE, a book in which nine women in various contemporary sacred-sexuality roles share their life and work.
Response to that book brought me in contact with many more people in similar roles. After two years of filming and editing, the filmmaker Sarah Sher and I completed THE SACRED PROSTITUTE, a 90-minute, in-depth documentary on women and men who have stepped outside of oppressive religious dogmas and are teaching others a new/ancient paradigm of sex and spirit. Mary Magdalene has become the “patron saint” of some of these visionaries. Now the documentary, a special section on Mary Magdalene, and inspiring outtakes are available in a special 2-DVD set entitled THE SACRED PROSTITUTE / MAGDALENE UNVEILED.
My most recent documentary, PATH OF THE SEXUAL SHAMAN: TEACHINGS ON ENERGY, ORGASM, AND WISDOM, takes us deeper into our sexual nature and how it can be an integral part of stepping onto a shamanic path of transformation. Energetically dancing with earth-wind-water-fire, with plants-animals-crystals, and with the “sacred ones,” we can develop our abilities to merge into oneness with another.
These documentaries and book are a view of a transformative paradigm shift on the nature of existence. I encourage you to explore them.

PATH OF THE SEXUAL SHAMAN:
Teachings on Energy, Orgasm, and Wisdom
What is shamanism?
What is a sexual shaman?
To transform an energy pattern, a shaman must first literally
merge with it. Likewise, at the moment of orgasm when we are
making love with another, we merge energetically with our partner.
To develop shamanic abilities, we need energy — lots
of energy. But it is not the type of energy we receive from
food. We need a more primordial form of earth-wind-water-fire
energy. Sexual orgasm is one of the primary ways to generate
such an energy.
Expanding our understanding of shamanism and our sexual nature,
we come to see that conscious sexuality, far from being an
obstacle, can be a powerful part of stepping onto a transformative path

THE SACRED PROSTITUTE / MAGDALENE UNVEILED, a 2-DVD set featuring the 90-minute documentary THE SACRED PROSTITUTE, takes us into the world of the ancient and modern sacred sexuality teacher/healer/ceremonialist, a world where sexual energy is a catalyst in the spiritual quest — a world where “sexual” and “spiritual” are intrinsically the same.

Known today sometimes by such names as “sacred intimate,” “tantrika,” “daka/dakini,” “sexual healer,” “sacred whore,” “tantra teacher,” or “sexual shaman,” women and men in contemporary versions of the sacred prostitute present their lives and their evolution into a role that would have been revered in many ancient and not-so-ancient cultures.
- Mary Magdalene and Jesus
- Tantra and other expressions of sacred sexuality
- Christianity and sexual oppression
- Plato vs. Jesus
- prostitution vs. sacred prostitution
- the legality of sacred sexwork
- heterosexual and homosexual sexuality
- orgasmic energy
The contemporary sacred prostitute no longer has a public temple where she or he can share the ceremonies openly. There is little or no lineage down through which the sacred mysteries can be revealed from high priest/ess to initiate. Legally, socially, religiously, the sacred prostitute has been out in the cold — until now!

THE SHAMAN CARDS:
Ceremonies for Energy and Wisdom
A shaman is a person who has the ability
to function through other dimensions of existence
intrinsic to our physical, incarnated dimension.
If we want to function through these dimensions,
we must first access them and the wisdom of their nature.
Focusing our intent in the Energy-Wisdom Ceremony with these cards
enables us to do this, thus increasing our abilities to transform and heal.
• 20 full-color 8.5 x 11″ Cards •
Each of the 20 cards consists of an exterior circle with a representation of each of the 4 “worlds”: a plant, an animal, a crystal, and a human. The humans depicted vary by age, gender, genetic pool, and condition. In the center of each card is an abstract concept, which also serves as the name of the card. The background painting is there for natural beauty.

ANCIENT CHINESE SEXUAL POSITIONS – Fine Art Cards
(50 instructional, all-color cards based on ancient Chinese medical texts)
5 in x 7 in (13 cm x 18 cm)
Art by Richard Stodart • Edited by Kenneth Ray Stubbs, Ph.D.
From Chinese antiquity comes the mythical Yellow Emperor. In exquisite detail and without any shame, the three “Women of Sexual Knowledge” enlightened the Emperor in Taoist sexual secrets and the arts of love- making. Based on the 1,000-year-old Japanese Ishimpo text, the 50 cards here present the sexual positions they taught the Yellow Emperor.
A 30-volume treatise on ancient Chinese medical practices, the Ishimpo included an extensive section on sexuality and uniting the man’s “jade peak” with the woman’s “jade gate.” The text was completed in 984 by Tamba Yasuyori, a Chinese physician living in Japan. Popular for many centuries in Japan, the text eventually lost favor, and even the section on sexual practices was censored during some periods.
The Ishimpo presented the sexual practices as essential ways to heal the human body and to increase one’s vitality. In these cards, the artist and I have adapted the art and text for contemporary lovers.
Exquisitely illustrated. Makes an exceptionally beautiful gift!
