Sacred Sexual Union
I would like to honour Padma Aon Prakasha as being the one who initiated the birth of Anaiya Sophia – an aspect of the person I am today. Anaiya is the one who works to invoke the Mystery of the Awakening Feminine, and the quagmire she faces when she agrees to the retrieval of Her Purity. It is not an easy path to take. One is exposed to her nature, totally. During the early years of formation I did some things that I wish to atone for. In my desperation to survive and to stay close to the Christ Lineage I was slowly being exposed too, I copy and pasted 125 pages of material from Padma Aon’s books, The Power of Shakti, The Nine Eyes of Light, and his online Course Sex, Soul and God. I included this material in my workshops, courses and talks about the Seven Gates, Ma’at, Sex, Soul and God, and The Ten Bodies. I put this work into my own Carriers of the Flame facilitator training, without acknowledgment, recompense or ethical permission from Padma.
I did not want to die alongside our divorce; I wanted to make something good and holy come out of this dreadful descent. I wanted to survive, and continue to share the mysteries of the female initiation into the Christed Path, and the preparation that I believed was necessary to experience the grace of Sacred Marriage. And so I spoke my story, and included some of his own. Now seven years later, I wish to bring to Light, for final release this simple truth – Anaiya Sophia was born to live through and beyond a certain darkness. She is the interface of my true soul’s essence and the outside world. Through Padma, she was born. Only Anaiya Sophia could interact with him. She carried, birthed and raised a child of purity. This child is who I am now…. And in these early stages I am not even sure what, and who this is/may become.
To compensate for my earlier error – I have paid Padma £10,000 and to extend this action of Goodwill, asked him to co-write Sacred Relationships (Inner Traditions, Feb 2017) with me, upon which he has accepted. As you can imagine beloved friends, we have been through so much, and are most qualified to share upon this subject. Forgiveness is the 2nd most powerful force in existence, behind love. Padma and I have learned this deeply, and despite the serious nature of this dispute – our Love for one another lives on…
Sacred Sexual Union, also known as Hieros Gamos or the Sacrament of the Bridal Chamber is a term that is generally used to refer to the sacred marriage between two divinities, or a human being and God, or between two human beings; it is the ultimate alchemy of forces which harmonize polar opposites, dissolving all duality.
Is it possible that Sacred Sexual Union, based upon the conscious application of Love, Power and Wisdom, be the path to attain Christhood? Can hormonal driven sex be preventing men and women from rediscovering their innate non-dual perception?
Perhaps the only way to discover the truth is to attempt to recreate the experience of the Sacrament of the Bridal Chamber for ourselves. Within these pages you will discover not only the entrance to such a process, but a guiding light that can only come from integrated direct experience.

“Sacred Sexual Union is a beautiful recognition and celebration of sacred union as the path to God, herself. We have been looking for God alone in meditation forever. She is not there. She is on the bridge between two hearts, awakened and illuminated by their shared breath, conscious intentionality, and authentic self-revealing. Through the merging of two willing souls, the gateway opens to the everything. There is such magic in these pages.”

"Such a treasure chest Sacred Sexual Union contains. Destined to become a leading reference - like Daniel Odier's Tantric Quest book was for many (including myself) - eliciting people to seek experiences described therein, drawing them on the path. An exquisite, readable, and truly powerful opus that opens realities for those ready."
