The Sacred Sex Rites of Ishtar
Shamanic sexual healing and sex magic
About this book
The author of The Sacred Sex Rites of Ishtar is a shaman - someone who gets guidance from the spirits in the other dimensions.
So this book is about interdimensional sexual healing techniques that lead to greater self empowerment and creative intelligence, which she has been taught by her guiding spirits, over decades. Ishtar explains, however, that this is not a New Age teaching, but a very old one, and that she is merely reconstituting a practice that our earlier ancestors were skilled in and valued highly as a means of spiritual evolution.
In Part I, Ishtar lays the foundation stone for the teaching, by showing the evidence, in the archaeological record, for these sacred shamanic sex practices, which seem to have fallen out of favour after the destruction of the Mystery Groves and the Library of Alexandria.
Ishtar uses erotic poetry and art from ancient Egypt, Crete, India, Sumer and Babylon to show that sacred sex was part of the Kingship rites, and that the spirits were present in the lovemaking. She also finds evidence for the practice of the Faery Marriage, and what she believes is the original meaning of the Holy Grael, stemming back to the times of the Neanderthals about 45,000 years ago.
Ishtar unravels ancient myths to show that they are really “Trojan horses” of sacred dramas which carry the secret keys of this ancient sex magic teaching. She is also the first to discover the allegorical sub-strata about sex magic in Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, based on alchemy and the Alchemical Marriage. She gives the same treatment to the story of the Woman at the Well in the Gospel of John.
In Part II, Ishtar explains the metaphysical anatomy of the human being, and then reveals the secret techniques of shamanic sex magic, so that people can try them for themselves.
Although this is quite a complex subject, her past experience as a national newspaper journalist – Sunday Times, Sunday Express, Mail on Sunday – has given Ishtar the expertise to explain some quite dense material in simple everyday language to produce an engaging, page-turner of a book. She also writes with great humour!
