The Yoni: Sacred Symbol of Feminine Creative Power - Rufus Camphausen
Ancient fertility cults centered on phallic worship are well documented, but would you like a guided tour of older and even more pervasive Goddess images of the vulva-known in the East since ancient times as the yoni?
From earliest times, humanity has found visual expression for the cosmic forces of creation, birth, and passion in artistic representations of human genitalia.
Yoni symbolism is a part of spiritual traditions in every part of the globe-from naturally occurring rock formations revered by North American Native peoples to the shakta-pithas of Hindu temples, and from early Celtic sheela-na-gig carvings to the Japanese kagura ritual.
- Dozens of illustrations, many in color, reproduce carvings, drawings and other portrayals of this universal symbol of feminine creativity.
- The Yoni traces this primal motif in Australian Aboriginal folk tales, alchemy, Tantric practices and in contemporary art by painters such as Georgia O'Keefe and Judy Chicago.
- In our Vaginal Health collection, PASSIONAL Boutique & Sexploratorium hopes to provide essential exercisers, dilators and other tools designed to assist with stretching, strengthening, cleaning, massaging or caring for the soft tissues of the anatomy of the Yoni in all of its diverse forms.
- Born in Germany, Rufus C. Camphausen is a writer and illustrator now living in the Netherlands. He is the author of Return of the Tribal, The Encyclopedia of Erotic Wisdom and The Yoni as well as numerous articles and essays on religious history, mythology, and sacred sexuality.
