It was a beautiful and frisky group of people, gorgeous in their dress-up clothes. People played and flirted, and enjoyed dancing with each other.
I was nervous before the party, realizing that I was stepping out into a new level of visibility. Old fears surfaced in the days before, fears of being burned or stoned again. So many lives where the sacred prostitute, or the feminine, was despised.
But this group was sweet, respectful and honoring. It was a great way to ease into being more public. I am grateful for each person's presence.
It's almost time for my book release party -- the Sacred Prostitute Dress-Up and Dance Party. I've been choosing great sensual music for dancing, and getting all my dress-up clothes ready. I'm thinking black lace for myself . . .
It's going to be fun! Join me if you can. It's May 9, next Saturday night, in Oakland. Email me for directions.
Today is Beltane, the half-way point between the spring equinox and the summer solstice. I’ve always had a soft spot for Beltane. Traditionally it was a wild time, where the peasants fucked in the fields to make the crops grow well. One could partner with whomever one wished, and any child that was conceived at Beltane was considered a child of the Goddess, and especially honored.
You can channel your sexual energy into any area of your life, bringing fertility into your work, your relationships, or even your garden. Dedicate your sexual energy to something, and watch it manifest!
I spent nine years working as a sacred prostitute, using the vehicle of Tantric massage to plant seeds of light in the masses. I have taught Tantra since 1993, and done sexual healing work since 1991. I just completed a book about my work and life called "Tales of a Sacred Prostitute", which will be released in early 2009.
