Rebirth

"The erotic is a measure between the beginnings of our sense of self and the chaos of our strongest feelings. It is an internal sense of satisfaction to which, once we have experienced it, we know we can aspire. For having experienced the fullness of this depth of feeling and recognizing its power, in honor and self-respect we can require no less of ourselves". 
― Audre Lorde, Uses of the Erotic: The Erotic as Power

As a society we have lost connection to our source of life, Gaia. We are poisoning her waters, extracting from her depths, polluting her lungs, and destroying her soil. We have tortured nature for her secrets. Abused her as a resource, rather than revering her as the Source. We celebrate a culture of patriarchy enshrined through the values of competition, commodification, violence and oppression. Women are a representation of the Earth. To violate Her is the demise of humanity. Gaia Erotica is a photography project that transmutes the energetic patterns of these injustices. Adorning the divine feminine with the sacred treasures of nature, creating altars of devotion to Gaia. Celebrating the female form as temples of worship. Remembering we are nature unfolding in conscious evolution.          These photographs are evidence of a healing, transformative process. One that begins with vulnerability and the courage to be in her skin. A ceremonial space is created and an alchemical process begins that evokes strength, beauty and sensuality. She is adorned, honored, celebrated, worshiped. Her wild nature is awakened. She is seen. Follow @gaiaerotica

These photographs are evidence of a healing, transformative process.
One that begins with vulnerability and the courage to be in her skin.
A ceremonial space is created and an alchemical process begins that evokes strength, beauty and sensuality.
She is adorned, honored, celebrated, worshiped.
Her wild nature is awakened.
She is seen.
