Our intention is to bring the archetype of a Sacred Prostitute to a new level of appreciation for contemporary women and men.The play is inspired by Esther Harding "Women's Mysteries" and Nancy Qualls-Corbett "The Sacred Prostitute"
The Sacred Prostitute. Why should anyone take an interest in this ancient ritual and how does it serve modern men and women? In ancient time the maiden goes to the temple where she meets within herself the inner man and the god. The stranger journeys to the temple where he meets within himself the inner women and goddess. They are prepared by both priest and priestess and initiated in the sacred act of making love as the embodiment of god and goddess. However, before this act can take place the maiden must recognize the goddess within.
