Take Mystery As Your Lover
Those who are inspired by a model other than nature, a mistress above all masters, are labouring in vain." - Leonardo Da Vinci
“The gods made our bodies as well as our souls, is it not so? They give us voices, so we might worship them with song. They give us hands, so we might build them temples. And they give us desire, so we might mate and worship them in that way.”
― George R. R. Martin
“The erotic state – again, a mixture of concentration and spontaneity – is a hypnoidal state, probably the most powerful kind that we are capable of experiencing, and it is in this condition that unexpected regions of the self are revealed, as the majority of people know from experience.”
― Peter Redgrove
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.
