This is a signal boost for a project I’m pleased is happening (there are multiple books in the works on the topic of sacred marriage, in fact). There is considerable misunderstanding on the topic of sacred marriage within a pagan and polytheist context despite (or hell, perhaps because of) historic and mythic precedent for such expression within our various traditions. This configuration is both a paradigm of relationship and a complex engine of spiritual development that has the potential to create both highly refined and very unexpected and unusual outcomes in one’s private religious life. It is both self-justified (existing for its own sake) and undertaken for reasons beyond the personal.
No single volume will be able to capture the fullness of this particular spiritual expression because it is a phenomenon being currently practiced and furthered here, today, now. We are learning more and more about it simply because it is a practice emerging and being rediscovered. Though I strongly believe that devotional practices and expressions don’t need to have their value justified, an clear exploration of these topics is valuable to people seeking a greater understanding.
You have questions? This is a good opportunity to ask them of people who are willing to answer.
