In this episode I’m joined again by my dear beloved soul bro of more than two decades, Wilhelm Cortez. (Listen to our first episode here) We’ve both been working hard in collaboration on overhauling and editing the manuscript for my forthcoming first book entitled: “Psychedelic Goddess Worship: Erotic Memoirs from the Astral Battlefield”.
I thought it would be fun and engaging to give a bit of a “behind the book” commentary so we could both compare notes and commiserate on the arduous process of co-creating hopefully a potential modern epic.
We discuss the backstory of how our personal life journeys have intertwined throughout the years going back to the old days in the Portland Gutter Punx scene and the forest defense encampments, then we give an overview of the events leading up to his encouragement and editorial role for my articles on the Good Men Project website, then we cover the events leading up to the formation of the Connection Victory publishing company. This leads to our dialog about the inner-workings of the book editing process, discovering emergent properties hidden between the lines, getting stuck and unstuck, converting an otherwise dry pseudo-scientific pseudo-academic tome, into a sci-fi-esque romance novel, and much more.
It has and will continue to be a great honor to have his expertise and wisdom informing and guiding the project in ways I could never have imagined. It’s a trip how the book is a sort of living creature filled with its own paradoxical angels and demons. We discuss how since Wilhelm has been involved, he has in different ways become both entangled and liberated through the process.
We’re looking forward to an official release later this year, stay tuned!!!

In this episode I’m honored to be joined by Alejandra Aguilar Avelino, an advocate, educator and service provider at the East Los Angeles Women Center. We met there recently at a Sex Workers Outreach Project event and she gave a moving speech to explain a piece of art she created in solidarity with the victims of sexual violence. Her extensive experience in community support work is truly profound and she shares some very deep and intense insights on the intersections of religion, sexuality, economics, and politics.
We explore the efforts and potential to organize male clients of sex workers to show more solidarity and do more to support the health and well being of sex workers, and she shares some of her hopes and dreams for expanding the scope of services and outreach in the future.
I was very grateful to learn from her and to share a passion for improving the outcomes and quality of lives for sex workers through their whole life cycle. I’m hoping that her work and that of her peers and colleagues will be well financed so they can carry on doing such important work!

In this episode I’m joined by Kit Murray Maloney, an outspoken orgasmic organizer who’s been working and playing hard to start a proud self-pleasuring revolution among women. While male masturbation is taken for granted and catered to by the mainstream culture, female pleasure is still in many ways in the dark ages. Kit shares about her great work to re-enlighten humanity about the potential for healing, empowerment, pleasure, fun, relaxation, and more with female masturbation and orgasm.
She’s established a movement around the Pleasure Pledge where women commit to pleasure themselves thoroughly for 3 weeks straight, to learn more please go here: https://www.thepleasurepledge.com/
We discuss the need for thoughtful user experiences with online porn and her efforts to curate a more refined adult entertainment selection. We also commiserate on the need for shamanic pornography to become a thing so we can show religious pornophobes how sacred sexuality is to be respected rather than feared.
Kit Murray Maloney is driven by her core belief that a celebration of women’s sexual pleasure, including female orgasms, will heal and better the world.
For the last two decades Kit’s been an activist, academic, and entrepreneur committed to channeling her passion for gender equity into a celebration of women’s sexual pleasure.

Kit is also the founder of The Pleasure Pledge, a free 21 day program inviting women to celebrate there daily orgasm.
Oh My Goddess, tonight we will worship each others body temples with total adoration. For this ceremonial love making ritual we invite only benevolent beings, our spirit guides and divine allies. All lower beings with harmful intent be warned, evacuate this space or be incinerated in the fires of divine love. We humbly invoke for divine blessings, in full faith, so be it.
We must first cleanse each other’s bodies and auras in a salt water bath, then we shall begin with a sacred dance
As your Shiva I will be the structural form that supports the fierce and wild expression of your feminine power
As your Shakti I will pulse through your nadis with currents of pure love and light. Together we’ll burn away life times of karmic seeds.
Close your eyes and stand still as I dance in a circle around you, gently sweeping your aura with my with hands
Now you be still as I encircle and sweep you my love
I will now hold you tight from behind, right hand on your heart, left above your yoni, I will lead a swaying of our hips in figure eight and circular motions
May our charkas align, entrain and unite, let us charm the kundalini serpent and ride her into the heights of ecstasy
I will now kneel in front of you, embrace your lower back, pressing my ear to your womb, I humble myself to your power to create life.
Now I slide my hands down your legs and hold your feet, bowing my forehead to the earth between your legs in prostration to your divinity.
Now for an exchange of massage. First I will give and you will receive. Disrobe my beloved and lay upon the bed. From head to toe I apply coconut oil. Fingers, palms, knuckles and elbows dance all over your flesh. I surrender to the flow of divine healing intelligence, I am guided by forces beyond technique.
I will now annoit you with oil and return the full body massage.
We are now fully embodied and free from the chattering mind. We shall feed each other fruit and chocolate and say our prayers to the divine.
I rest my third eye upon your yoni and chant the bija mantra Vam to open your gates to heaven. I pray to receive guidance on my path of healing and self-transcendent purpose. I pray to receive the strength and power needed to heal the earth. I pray to have the grace needed to be a friend to all life.
I bow to and behold your want of light as I chant Vam. I activate the divinity in your lingam and bless it as the most magical and sacred object in the Yoniverse. I pray that it will be strong and brave, and survive in the hot lava of my yoni tonight. As we reunite with source, I will draw down the power to support all earthy women on their paths to total liberation.
Without an orgasmic agenda let us now trade lingam and yoni massages. The intent is only to innocently and playfully explore the pelvic region, applying love and pleasure to all of the erogenous tissues and their surroundings. I will begin. I massage your belly, your hips, and your womb, funneling energy towards your yoni.
I now begin a epic exploration of your vulva, after generously applying coconut oil I gently press, rub, and roll your soft tissues from outer to inner labia. As you become engorged, I place my left palm upon your public mound, pressing down and making slow circles.
May I ask permission to enter your Yoni with my fingers?
Yes my dear, you may enter
I dip my right index and middle finger in coconut oil, and first gently enter with my middle finger, then slowly, carefully follow with my index. As my second knuckes pass through the gates, I curl upwards and find the Goddess spot on the upper wall. I apply gentle pressure and stroke back and forth once per second as my left palm continues to circle the public mound.
Oh My Goddess, you may experience powerful emotional releases, its okay to laugh, cry, scream, yell and growl. I’m holding sacred space for all that has been heaped upon you by others in this life and the many before, to be exorcized. Have no fear, our divine allies have been summoned to keep us safe and help remove all that that does not serve the highest good.
I’m now the giver. To begin I massage energy outward from your lingam and disperse it throughout your body. To ensure you last all night, I must spin open your heart charka in a counter clockwise motion. As I begin to stroke your lignam I will guide the rising energy up to and into the spinning vortex of your heart. It will now become a magnet, pulling your multiple orgasms upward without risk of ejaculation. Now that your heart has been opened, I’ll use both hands to dance upon your wand, your jewels and the surrounding tissues. I encircle your tip with the center of my left palm, while stoking up and down with my right. I then trace the ridge of you head with my finger tips, then shift to upward rolling motions.
As I sense you approaching the point of inevitability, I stop and guide you to take a deep breath and sip the congested energy up and away from the gentials, up the spine and into the heart, then up to the third eye, and back down again. You are now able to circulate your orgasmic energy and focus it anywhere in the body and project it into mine. Rolling waves of orgasmic bliss will continuously flow and you will be capable of making love with me for hours as you repeat this procedure.
Now that you are fully moistened and I am fully erect, I will now ask you to climb upon my lap, wrap your legs and my back, and allow my wand of light to pass through your pearly gates. I will hold it still as you slowly slide in place. Our eyes shall not close or wander from an interconnected gaze, focusing on each others left eye, we project loving energy closing an energetic circuit.
You’ve fully enveloped me, but before we allow our wild passion to be unleashed, we’ll synchronize our breath and continue to hold the gaze.
Now we’ll alternate our in and out breaths, once our rhythm has been established we shall place our right palms upon each other hearts, and place our left palms on top of each others hands.
I can see the green heart charka energy follow the breath moving through our arms and hands into our hearts, then up and out through our mouths.
Before we dissolve into total union with each other and the divine, let us build a magical future vision together, verbally affirm it, then release it into the alchemical caldron of our love making. I invite you to initiate the design of our vision.
Yes dear, in our future I see lush Goddess Temples, nestled within edible and medicinal forest gardens, defended by powerful warriors, hosting earthly and divine goddesses and gods, training priestesses, dakas and dakinis, initiated psychedelic shamans, providing refuge for the victims of patriarchy, and ensuring safety and protection from all threats of sexual violation.
I share your vision my love. Let us now release all techniques, and amplify the volume of our prayers. Our orgasmic roars will be heard by all divinity, and the purity of our intent will be honored with miraculous synchronicities illuminating the path to our designed future of Goddess Temple glory!
In this episode I’m joined again by Alexandria Baker, a southern California sex educator, Hatha yoga instructor, ethical luxurious natural beauty and skin care entrepreneur, model, and performance artist.
I was eager to learn of her recent world traveling adventures and sadly discovered in the course of the podcast that she had experienced sexual assault. She boldly shares about the experience, I do my best to apply comforting and empowering stories from my personal battles with surviving sexual trauma. We compare notes and agree that much more loving, care, safe space is needed culturally to seriously address the the plague of abuse.
She bravely shares her story of healing from trauma that provides a very compelling and inspiring case study in transmuting a tragedy into a gift that serves the greater good and shifts disempowering victim role into a victor role.
We discuss how tantra massage techniques can effectively move trapped and negative energies from the past into the surface of the mind, body, and present moment. We also talk about how much care before and after is required to better ensure a positive outcomes.
Tiffany’s personal healing journey propelled her to become a certified therapist and teacher of Tantra Massage through her beloved school, Somananda Tantra School.

In this episode I’m blessed to be joined by Revered Teri Ciacchi MSW a leader in the eco-sexuality and sacred sexual healing movements. Teri takes us on an adventure through a colorful playful personal narrative that weaves together a beautiful tapestry of initiations and revelations. Teri’s deep, rich, and diverse array of offerings are a great pleasure to explore and I have to say that Teri’s work in the area of facilitating safer/sacred group sexual healing ritual with best practices in mind is the most comprehensive and thorough I’ve yet discovered, I salute and bow down to Teri’s great works. To learn more about the Aphrodite Temple, please listen to this extremely empowering and invigorating podcast:
In this episode I have the great honor and pleasure of being joined by Angel Miguel De Hoyos Kolek. He is one of the most highly accomplished answers to my prayers as an extensively trained sexual shaman who’s ready to bring the light into the shadows of the adult entertainment industry. It has been an often lonely and discouraging mission I have taken on personally, so to find allies in alignment on this journey feels like winning a spiritual lottery.
Angel’s personal story is extremely powerful and invigorating, his epic journey from trauma to personal healing to becoming a skilled practitioner and educator is impressive and inspiring. He’s also a sacred musician which adds a dimension of solidarity that means a lot to me.
We discuss the mainstream status quo state of affairs in the adult industry and begin to share ideas and formulate strategies to support each others’ individual and collaborative efforts to next-level the current porn paradigm.
Oneness Blessing giver
Reiki Master Instructor
The Ascension Manual taught by my Teacher Donna Domatoe
Shamanic Body Worker received my Kahuna initiation in Kuai
Shamanic Cranial Sacral Therapy Practitioner under Don Masott
Vajrayana Tantra Master under my Teacher Aghori Baba Peter Aziz
I also just received my Aghori initiation under Baba Peter Aziz
I also have been working with the Kenneth Ray Stubbs to learn about Sexual Shamanic healing.
I am also a Bon Jhankri Phurba Practioner -Tibetan Tantric Shamanism
As I have continued to evolve the modality I have found myself able to heal other people by pretending to have sex with the higher self of whomever I have been working with. Sometimes they are not aware and sometimes they directly participate during the session. When beings started approaching me for sex I was very open and receptive but the problem was I was starting to learn that perhaps these where not good choices for me. Sometimes I suspected like they where impregnating me with beings. This really didn’t become an issue till during one of my healing session my mentor Dana pulled from my abdomen and energetic pregnancy. I allowed this because I assumed it was lower vibrational energy that needed to be removed. After this I started to realize that I needed to be more careful.
So then I decided to search out tantric teachers. The one site that got my attention was the Naked shaman. He is an avid promoter and proudly trains Tantric shamans or Sacred prostitutes. I delayed training with him because I wanted a different teacher and started to search around. Then one day after diving in I began practicing my Self honoring ritual I said a Mantra “Om Shakti Om “ and tryed to invoke the spirits to teach or initiate me. I had been reading about Mayan Tantra by Amara charles and Then this Blue woman came to my Bed. She had a lot of arms and looked really mean. But she was so captivating I literally froze and was afraid lying in my bed and not really sure what was going to happen to me I thought she was going to hurt me… As this Blue woman started to straddle me I became even more alarmed because she started to make love to me and made direct eye contact with me all during the time. I heard stories about how this is a no no and how she would suck people’s entrails out through her Yoni… but I could not move!
During our intense connection as I was moaning in ecstasy I realized and I kept thinking that she has her head on her… Not sure what this meant at the time… I kept sharing the story with people and they could not understand what this meant because they usually thought it was a bad thing and where quite puzzled or I got the feeling that it was weird. After Mahakali had her way with me she offered me a boon or I guess a wish. I told her that I wanted to learn sacred sexual healing and in way that would honor my vows to my wife. I wanted to learn how to do this for the highest good of myself and my wife…. later on my sexual powers where foreign and new to me and even created more questions for me…. I had a tendency to straddle pillows like a girl and go for a wild ride and all while pulling energies out with an energetic Yoni and releasing it through my mouth… It felt new and quite good. In a sense this is how I became a Sacred sexual Healer or sacred prostitute.
I am looking to make my introduction to the adult industry and offer my unique services . . I believe that the adult industry is indispensable asset to the community and offers a somewhat needed release for the community. However I feel that the industry has unrealized untapped potential and has venues that, have not been explored yet….
As a Tantric Shamanic and Sexual Shamanic Practioner I would like to share and offer my unique skills sets and Tantric coaching that will help diversify and heightens the positive impact that the adult industry has today. I am currently working on lesson plans so that other practioner’s can take advantage of these healing abilities…
My demonstrations and coaching are done via skype and zoom. So all of my work is done remotely….
In this episode I’m joined by one of the most admirable entrepreneurs in the sexual health and wellness field, Vanessa Cuccia. She guides us through a tear and heart wrenching personal story of transformation, healing, and empowerment through merging crystal healing with sacred sexuality. She shares the hardships and breakthroughs that shaped the development of the Chakrubs crystal sex toys brand, then we explore the future horizon and brainstorm on marketing strategies that will hopefully lead to collaborate efforts to heal the sexual wounds of the world.
Please visit her website and connect on social media:
Vanessa Cuccia is regarded as a pioneer in the sex toy industry for introducing her methods of using crystals for sexual healing and empowerment on a global scale. She is the founder and creator of Chakrubs, The Original Crystal Sex Toy Company, and she continues to receive testimonials from people around the world who use her Chakrub products and methods. These overwhelmingly positive testimonials have inspired her to write her upcoming book, Crystal Healing and Sacred Pleasure.
Since conceptualizing her initial designs for crystal pleasure tools in 2011, and establishing her brand in 2012, Cuccia has been an influencer in the social movement of sex positivity, self-love, and personal awareness by bridging the gap between sensuality and spirituality. As creator of products that symbolize the essence of these movements, she spearheaded the ethos of the brand which is inspiring many to nurture their own emotional intelligence, self-awareness, and spiritual connection.
Cuccia cultivated her knowledge of crystals and energy work while she was living in LA to pursue a career in music. During this time she worked a part-time job at an adult store where she fostered her education on sex positivity. Cuccia merged both principals which sparked the idea of sexual exploration with the use of crystals. The recognition for the potential crystals have to facilitate energy movement inspired Cuccia to utilize crystals to enhance sexual pleasure. Cuccia’s work has been a fixture in the Hammer Museum and Museum of Sex, featured in magazines such as New York Magazine, Cosmopolitan, Elle and Allure, appeared on notable digital platforms such as Buzzfeed and VICE, and has been featured on shows such as The Doctors and Conan. Cuccia has also received the attention of many notable artists who have collaborated with their own sensibility, bringing to light different aspects of the profound messages Chakrubs inspires.
As a certified crystal healer and reiki practitioner, Cuccia continues to pursue knowledge of crystals and metaphysical modes of healing to help those who have experienced sexual trauma or simply wish to deepen pleasure and connection to self, spirit, and others. Cuccia is a musician whose knowledge of energy extends through her performances. She currently resides in New York.
In this episode I’m joined by one of my favorite authors, Charles Eisenstein. After studying his books The Ascent of Humanity and Sacred Economics I’ve been deeply moved by the level of insight and analysis he provides. As tantra works to re-weave sacred sexual-spiritual unity, Charles’ work has been re-weaving the material and sacred realms by deconstructing patriarchal stories of separation, and providing road maps for more holistic value exchange rooted in ancestral wisdom.
It was a pleasure to explore topics of sacred sexuality and sexual healing with him, as the “oldest profession on earth” has become one of the most exploitative and desacrilized.
He paints an empowering vision for a future of sacred sexual economics. I was imbued with a compelling sense of awe, feeling a new flow of energy and hope that a globally integrated culture may well evolve to a high level of maturity.
In this episode I share a piece I wrote that serves as a sort of guerrilla psychedelic research white paper. It is the most direct and concise articulation of my thesis:
Demons are invisible to the naked eye but exist as energetic parasites lurking all around us at all times
They are attracted by energy that’s released during sex, aggression, intimidation, fear, etc.
They enter into cracks in the protective shield of our auric field and chakra system caused by abuse, trauma, neglect, lack of adequate love, negative thought patterns, etc.
Acts of sexual manipulation, abuse, exploitation, and rape create opportunities for them to spread and infect souls, virgin souls are a delicacy for them
With varying degrees of conscious awareness from relatively benign ignorance, to sinister intentionality: sexual predators are being possessed by demonic entities
Surgical shamanic exorcism must be performed to remove them
In perpetrators with full blown infections, their demons have spread and gotten control of their nervous system
Victims have incubating infections that if disinfected, purified, and healed before they spread into the nervous system, can prevent neurosis and sexual pathology
Surgical shamanic exorcism when combined with certain psychedelic plant medicines, ceremonial ritual allows for the patient and/or shaman to see the infectious parasitic organisms as if with x-ray vision
Goddess-centered sacred sexual healing arts such as Tantra when applied in conjunction with psychedelic shamanic exorcism produces a positive synergistic effect whereby an erotic exorcism can be performed
Most traditional psychedelic shamanic healing ceremonies are inaccessible financially and geographically by the average American
Most Tantric “Dakas” (male sexual healers) and “Dakinis” (female sexual healers) are inaccessible financially by the average American
A “poor man’s” do-it-yourself-or-with-partners home-based procedure can be quickly, easily, and affordably trained for mass application with minimal risks and mild if any drug side-effects
In this episode I feature a recent spoken word piece I recorded to document a peak erotic experience in the form of a tantradelic birthday party/ceremony that was organized for a dear beloved priestess. I introduce the piece with commentary that provides some background and offers a greater context for its political-ideological significance.
In this episode I have the pleasure and honor of exploring the deep and profound insights and experience of Reverend Goddess Charmaine of http://thesensuousmystic.com/. I was turned on to her work several years ago by a dear friend and while catching up on her online radio show archives I discovered that she boldly and bravely confronts the shadow of sexuality. It was a breath of fresh air to hear her empowered voice of sexual trauma survival and healing. I’m very grateful that she blessed my podcast by telling her personal story and sharing strength and solidarity with me as wounded healers who are ceaselessly healing.
Reverend Goddess Charmaine was ordained by the New Seminary, a school of interfaith theology in New York City. She is a trained Reiki Master, Crystal Reiki Master, certified hypnotherapist, trained aromatherapist, and tantric energy specialist. She primarily focuses her energy work through Shamanism, trained by Kenneth Ray Stubbs through the Path of the Sexual Shaman all levels.
She has led workshops in the tri-state area since 1992, and is continually increasing her work as a facilitator of personal empowerment through her workshops such as chakra intensives, Goddess Initiations, Second Sunday and Clothing Optional (Naked Church) Services, energetic Merge Ceremonies, and Tarot Readings online, Spirit and Erotic Spirit Circles and various others that continue to support empowerment and erotic enlightenment for all. Online and In Person.
Rev. Goddess has written two books, The Sensuous Mystic ~ Uniting Sex and Spirit and The Goddess Scrolls ~ Sacred Erotic Tales that inspire and enlighten along with her ongoing radio blogtalk show The Sensuous Mystic airing live most Wednesday nights at 8pm EST.
In July, 2000, in a primitive and intense ritual, she was initiated into Goddess-hood. From this ceremony, she realized that she’d been called to bring forth the unification of Sex and Spirit.
Her unique methods center on our natural ability to evolve by healing ourselves and others. With her guidance and assistance, one is lead through a series of letting-go processes. These experiences enable one to work through and leave behind a lifetime of fears and paralyzing self-doubt, to attain the position of strength and power that is rightfully their own within their Holy Bodies.
In this episode I’m joined by Kenneth Ray Stubbs PhD, one of the most distinguished and accomplished elders in the field of sacred sexuality and sexual shamanism. His no-nonsense approach to teaching the energetics of shamanic healing is very compelling. It was a blessing to be able to explore his unique perspectives and stock up on new highly effective practical, theoretical, and analytical tools that I haven’t found elsewhere in the field.
In 1975 Ray began teaching erotic massage to people of all sexual orientations in San Francisco. His 1989 Erotic Massage — the Touch of Love book was the first instructional book to illustrate genital massage and has sold over a million copies worldwide.
He has taught many somatic modalities and has written/created over a dozen books and DVDs on sacred sexuality including Women of the Light: The New Sacred Prostitute, Sacred Orgasms, and The Essential Tantra. He also co-created the 90-minute documentary The Sacred Prostitute and a recent documentary, Path of the Sexual Shaman: Teachings on Energy, Orgasm, and Wisdom. Ray is the former vice-president of the Association of Sexual Energy Professionals.
On a shamanic path for over two decades, Ray is a 13-year SunDancer and has been greatly influenced by Tibetan Buddhism.
Via Skype and the phone, he now gives individual sessions and trainings on energy, sexuality, shamanism, and transformation.
In this episode I am joined by Ayanna Mojica, a powerful priestess who has stepped up to hold space for dialog within the spiritual community about the tragic suicide of world-renown tantra teacher Psalm Isadora. I discovered her via a conference call she set up. I wasn’t able to join the call but I had a lot of emotion and concern about this incident and decided to invite Ayanna on the podcast to explore suicide prevention strategies and get deeper into this issue from a more tantric perspective. We honor Psalm by sharing our knowledge and experience of her works and her influence, and discuss ways we can all be more supportive of ourselves and each other as we continue our light works.
About Ayanna Mojica, Priestess of Power & Wealth:

In this episode I’m blessed to be joined by Charlie Glickman, an acclaimed sexuality educator, sexual healer, and much more. His insights into both the glory and peril of sexual healing are at times heart warming and at times deeply chilling. Of all the conversations I’ve had on and off the podcast about these issues, this is one of the most raw and real. He graciously holds space for me to vent and seek his guidance and offers an exemplary demonstration of how he’s able to be a masterful healer of healers and a teacher of teachers.
In this episode I’m joined by Dr. Victoria Reuveni, a highly experienced and accomplished sexuality educator and healer. We explore the ins and outs of sexological bodywork, some of the bottle-necks of the practice, and compare notes on how we would like the field of hands-on sexual healing grow and evolve as it reaches and helps more and more people and gains more momentum and recognition in all of it’s diverse modalities.
Dr. Victoria Reuveni, DHS, CSB, ACSI, is a Los Angeles-based sexological bodyworker, sex educator, and coach working with individuals, couples, and groups to facilitate going deeper in erotic embodiment and self-acceptance through mindfulness, breath work, and touch.

In this episode I’m joined by Courtney Garner, she’s a certified tantrika with training in the Tibetan 5 Element Healing system taught by one of my heroines and previous podcast guests Devi Ward. She shares her story of transcendence from an unsatisfactory relationship and talks about her professional integration of East and West, having a background as a nurse practitioner before becoming a sexual and spiritual healer and educator.
She shares some heart warming success stories of working with clients who have been able to radically improve their love, sex, and spiritual lives with her help.
We discuss the how and why of semen retention and get into some edgy territory around female empowerment, spiritual sisterhood, and the ways men will need to “man up” on a new level to catch up with the rapid rate of sexual consciousness evolution among independent women who are claiming their power.
I’m a fun-loving Practitioner who’s great at laying it out so you get it! Helping clients find practical ways to integrate the practice and make it work, is my priority. I frequently work with men on issues like porn addiction, sexual dysfunction, and disconnection. I’m also a huge meditation advocate, teaching kids and adults the foundation of a spiritual practice.
As a nurse, fitness advocate, and Tibetan 5 Element Healing Practitioner, I have a holistic view of health and an expanded approach to healing. Using my Western medical training and Eastern healing practices, I provide a fresh voice, for ancient practices that give results now. My mission is to support the growth of free minds; free from fear, judgment, pain… I work everyday to change the world, one mind at a time.
This episode is a post-ceremony recap with Angelica, the shamanic nurse at my top in the Sexorcism the Tantric Opera documentary. We sequentially discuss the behind the scenes and compare notes on what we experienced internally and externally from beginning to end.
We also discuss the implications for sexology, sexual healing, and criminal justice as this experimental research continues to rock the boat of orthodox everything.

In this episode I’m joined by two dear and brave souls who participated in an epic experimental ceremony involving psychedelic goddess worship and tantric sexual shamanism. The three of us implemented a procedural design I had been developing over the course of several years. This was truly the peak experience of my lifetime thus far.
In this episode I am joined again by legendary journalist, shamanologist, and in my humble opinion the most important male voice in the global neo-shamanic revolution: Rak Razam! It was an exquisite joy and honor to have him hold space for me to lay out my thesis on tantra, shamanism, and the future of the adult entertainment industry. As a probing journalist and seasoned shamanic guide he facilitates a sapio-sexually charged journey that truly satisfies my desire to make a memorable episode “69”.
In this episode I am blessed to be joined by Jane Innmon who shares all about healing sexual trauma with flower essences. I’m so grateful to learn about this all natural, down-to-earth healing modality.
For over twenty five years I have been studying and working with Flower Essences and Vibrational healing and have been fascinated by how effective the Essences are.
Joseph Rael ~ Beautiful Painted Arrow ~ has been one of my teachers since 2002. His teachings have helped me as I’ve guided the sweat lodges that were held at my home in Pennsylvania, as well as the lodge just completed at my new home in Tucson, Arizona.
My training also includes a year long bio-dynamic gardening Intensive at Chestnut Ridge NY and training for a year at Sound School in the Peace Chamber at Three Rivers Michigan, with Kay Ferry and Ruth Eichler.
Intuition and deep listening skills are honed by the Sun/Moon Dances I’ve attended since 2003 and the practice of meditation and Chanting in the newly created Sweet Beautiful Waters Peace Sound Chamber. I’ve also had the privilege of attending a Ten Moon Initiation facilitated by Nut Tmu-Ankh Butterfly Dreaming (2008) and advanced Diva Mentor Training (2010) as well as completing a Shʼti Mer Immersion with Nut Tmu-Ankh Butterfly Dreaming in 2011. These experiences and trainings prepare and guide me as I work with women to gently reclaim their power.
In this episode I’m joined by world renown tantric master and instructor Lawrence Lanoff. He shares his story of initiation into the loving arts at an early age and his life’s work to help unfuck the minds of individuals, couples, and modern western culture at large.
We weave a tapestry of glory and tragedy as we explore the light and shadow of sexuality education, religion, pornography, and neo-tantra. He helps distill the core values and truths humanity will need to agree on to one day establish a universal declaration of sexual human rights.
Please visit his website to access his training services and subscribe to the Optimized Mind Podcast where you will continue to have your mind blown with hard and uncompromising truths.
In this episode I have the exquisite joy of talking with one of the most endearing modern tantrikas. Kai Karrel shares his cinematic story of initiation into traditional authentic tantric practice in India as a teenager. We then discuss his ego-dissolving and heart melting practice of leading puja rituals for modern seekers, followed by a critical exploration of masculinity, sexual healing, and shamanism.
Please access Kai’s offerings by visiting his website: http://www.kaikarrel.com
Kai Karrel is writer, a poet, a mystic and a spiritual adventurer. He is a mystical traveler devoted to the exploration of the unknowable. He travels among native traditions and ancient cultures. In a way he considers himself a traditional light warrior, using the lighter side of his teaching to inspire spiritual growth and self-love. After over 20 years of deep study and devotion to walking a spiritual path, living in ashrams and learning from numerous teachers and guides, the emerging pattern that Kai has devoted his life to sharing, is that truth is a pathless land and that a true mystical experience lies in full acceptance and radical self inquiry. His teachings reflect a deep commitment to freedom and truth, the search for one single experience – falling in love with one’s self.
In this episode I am joined by Nirmala Nataraj. I discovered her great works in a search for a teaching on the symbology within the Kali Yantra and found her article.
She has graciously blessed the podcast by sharing her story of personal transformation through Tantra and Goddess Kali worship. She holds sacred space for me to share some of my revelations and research and generously provides validation of and guidance for many of my most controversial discoveries.
Together we weave a mutually affirming narrative of personal healing and spiritual growth through our devotion to Kali. We emphasize the need for preparation, care, and caution when approaching her might and magic. We also encourage listeners to find supportive fellowship as they rediscover and reinvent Kali’s vast primordial irrepressible nature.
Nirmala shares a description of the Kali Yantra and conducts a devotional guided meditation using the Yantra.
We close with a brief discussion on sexual healing and empowerment through tantra and she offers some great advice for individuals and couples to break through repressive cultural conditioning and reclaim the power and beauty of sacred love making.
I’m Nirmala Nataraj, a San Francisco Bay Area-based Desire Guru and Taboo Slayer (and you can find me at my day job here)!
Sacred Fire Desire Coaching is my way of connecting directly with those who want to embody their truth. My wish to expand people’s repertoire of tools and resources through creative problem-solving is paramount in my approach. I especially love to work with people to clear some of the obstacles that keep them from expressing their deepest truths—obstacles such as shame, past experiences of trauma, and the inability to embrace and integrate every last part of themselves.
For me, healing is something that happens when we are willing to wrestle our demons…and then become their friends (which also happens to be a recurring theme in my writing). I’m also interested in inspiring my clients to view relationships, intimacy, and sexuality as viable and rigorous paths to personal development and purpose.
My training background includes the OneTaste Coaching Program, the Co-Active Coach Training Program, and the Bay Area Nonviolent Communication (NVC) Immersion Program.
In this episode I’m am joined by Kristen Boyer. She caught my attention in a you tube video of a panel discussion on eros and entheogens. She described a recent chapter of her life as a profesional shamanatrix. I had dreamt of such an archetype several years ago as I began to be intiated into the mysteries of sexual healing with psychedelic goddess worship
She has graciously blessed the podcast by sharing a bit from her memoires and engaging in a visioneering session with me on a more holistic and empowered future for dommes and their clients.
I have always been a natural counselor and teacher by design, and have been interested in motivating and supporting others in achieving their highest levels of happiness, wholeness and success. Shortly after earning my MA in Creative Arts Therapy at Pratt Institute in New York, I fell ill with chronic illness followed by abandonment of my spouse (which were undoubtedly connected to my health problems and had to be addressed on a physical, emotional and spiritual level). I felt my life crumble before me. In desperation to stay in New York City, I took up a job as a professional dominatrix as an attempt to reclaim my power and supplement the high costs of city living. I applied my psychotherapy training and facilitated a glorified version of drama therapy that allowed my clients an outlet for their shadow sides to be vulnerable, acknowledged and accepted without judgment. I found that deeply wounded clients were magnetically drawn to my empathic intuitive ‘girl next door’ persona. I found I was naturally gifted at holding space for some of the darkest, and most concealed wounds to be seen and healed. My dungeon time was not long-lived yet these experiences have inspired me to transmute and integrate some of the darker, shadow sides of my clients while balancing spiritual and psychological health.
Shamanism and soul retrieval work began to magnetically draw me in and I quickly realized that this was my life’s work. I was trained in many shamanic healing modalities, the most powerful of these techniques being soul retrieval. Learning how to facilitate soul retrieval was the missing piece of my healing practice…click here to read more

In this episode I’m joined by M.F.P. and we discuss the need for a shamanic revolution in the porn industry. I read my press release introducing a new “shamanic porn” genre starting with the recent release of the Tantradelic Exorgasm music video.
I break down the meaning behind the title and lyrics of the track and I provide an intensive intro to sexual and psychedelic shamanology.
In this episode I’m joined by MFP, my lead benefactress in my not-for-profit Christian feminist porn production initiative. She holds supportive space for me to tell a heart and gut wrenching story of my abuse and victimization as a survivor, former sex worker, and adult performer. We then explore a long chain of synchronicities leading to our new dharmic path as spiritual pornographers in service to healing the Earth and resurrecting the divine feminine.
This episode contains a true love story dialog between myself and a beloved dakini. It documents excerpts from our first several weeks of cyber courtship and our mutual exploration of tantra, shamanism, and exorcism.
There are more chapters in this true story that will be published later, and more chapters that have yet to be written.
With help, our visions will come true and we’ll be properly funded to investigate “sex files” world wide.
This episode is the third in a series of audio recorded lab reports from some of my deepest, darkest, most revelatory psychedelic goddess worship sessions. While living at a Goddess temple deep in the woodlands of the Pacific Northwest I was guided to combine shamanic magic mushroom ceremony, sacred psytrance music, and tantric Goddess invocation.
I document my first experience of encountering a human projected wrathful dakini in hyperspace. She ravages me, provides a sexual healing, and illuminates the transcendent majesty of the human sexual anatomy.
This episode is the second in a series of audio recorded lab reports from some of my deepest, darkest, most revelatory psychedelic goddess worship sessions. While living at a Goddess temple deep in the woodlands of the Pacific Northwest I was guided to combine shamanic magic mushroom ceremony, sacred psytrance music, and tantric Goddess Kali invocation. Be warned, there are many gory details before the glory.
This episode is not a typical interview format. It’s a collaborative discourse on the topic of the sexual exploitation of women in tantra, followed by an extensive exposition detailing my personal ethics, boundaries, procedures, and protocols. Devashi graciously holds a lot of sacred space for me and generously offers insightful critiques that I feel are exquisite gifts to men who are striving to do right as dakas.
