The Erotic Is A Resource

 

 

There are many kinds of power, used and unused, acknowledged or otherwise. The erotic is a resource within each of us that lies in a deeply female and spiritual plane, firmly rooted in the power of our unexpressed or unrecognized feeling. - Audre Lourde

 

 

 

 

"Just as the ancients danced to call upon the spirits in nature, we too can dance to find the spirits within ourselves that have been long buried and forgotten." 
― Anna Halprin

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.
