The celebration and integration of sexuality and spirituality in the Conservative Christian Church is largely unexplored in contemporary writing.  Further, the cultural discourses of sexuality both inside the church and in the culture at large are often oppressive leaving most people discouraged, ashamed, and isolated.  Since the church and cultural messages are both strong and covert, people are oftentimes left silenced, ignorant, and without the knowledge or tools to craft a physically and soulfully vibrant and satisfying sexual relationship.

This book published by Routledge Press, demonstrates how the very nature of spirituality is infused with sexuality, and sexuality with spirituality. We are bodied souls. Sex, God & the Conservative Church walks clinicians and readers through a critique of Western culture and the conservative Christian Church, and their effects on intimate partnerships and sexual lives. There are currently no books guiding psychotherapists or clergy on how to treat clients who grew up seeped in abstinence education – mired in sexual shame and dysfunction –  and who desire to both heal and hold on to their beliefs. This is the first book of its kind to offer a sex positive healing path out of sexual shame.  The book explains the story of how America became sex negative, offers a sex positive Judeo/Christian mystic alternative, and finishes filled with sacred intimacy practices that heal the body, mind and heart through loving touch.

SheetFeet1Caught Between the Sheets

Musings of a Sex Therapist

Have you ever wondered what kind of stories a sex therapist hears? In Caught Between the Sheets: Musings of a Sex Therapist we will explore the lives, stories and questions of everyday people who have sought to have more in their intimate sexual lives. We will look at what has kept them from their pleasure potential and what ultimately releases them. And from these stories we will liberate and practice ways that invite us into erotic ecstasy that satisfies our bodies, our hearts and our relationship … and can linger for days. We will explore the great mystery that is sexuality and how it defies our attempts to simplify it, sell it, chain it, reduce it or ignore it.
