Sacred Sexuality: The Erotic Spirit in the World’s Great Religions

Sacred Sexuality examines the history of sexuality as a sacramental act. In spite of our culture’s recent sexual liberalizations, sexual intimacy often remains unfulfilling. Georg Feuerstein suggests that fulfillment can only be attained once we have explored the spiritual depths of our erotic nature.

Feuerstein delves into a wide variety of spiritual traditions—including Christianity, Judaism, goddess worship, Taoism, and Hinduism—in search of sacred truths regarding sexuality. He reveals that all of these great teachings share the hidden message that spirituality is, in essence, erotic and that sexuality is inherently spiritual. From the erotic cult of the Great Mother and the archaic ritual of hieros gamos (sacred marriage) to the institution of sacred prostitution and the erotic spirituality practiced in the mystery traditions, Feuerstein offers a wealth of historical practices and perspectives that collectively serve as the basis for a positive sexual spirituality suited to our contemporary needs.
