Women of the Light: The New Sacred Prostitute: book
The Sacred Prostitute / Magdalene Unveiled: 2-DVD documentary set
Path of the Sexual Shaman: documentary
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-air-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.

Women of the night—women of the light:
the sacred prostitute,
the temple priestess,
the sexual healer,
the embodiment of the archetypal Goddess.
Who is she today?
Without a continuing lineage, without a temple, the contemporary sexual initiator/healer/teacher has many faces. Today she is

Nine women share their work, their lives, and their insights. Their personally written stories in this book bring us to a deeper understanding of our sexuality and our humanity.
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

Path of the Sexual Shaman — documentary clip 1
This is raw footage from an interview of two practitioners who were involved in a video and book production on energetic, erotic massage. In preparation for the shoot, they had been doing shamanic ceremonies to build and intensify their energies so the viewer would be energetically engaged in addition to learning the massage strokes.
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.

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!
