Churton explores the practices of the "first Gnostic," the historical Simon Magus, and explains the vital significance of "the seed" in Gnostic practice, showing it to be the sacramental substance par excellence. He illuminates the suppressed truth of why the name "Valentine" came to be associated with ennobling erotic love and reveals profound parallels between sexual gnosis and Tantra, suggesting that gnosis lies at the root of the tantric path.
Solving a millennia-old riddle regarding the identity and secret symbol of Sophia, the mysterious Gnostic "Aeon," Churton investigates Sophia's connections to Barbelo, also known as Pruneikos , the Wild Lady of Wisdom, and the central focus of the Barbelo Gnostics of the 2nd century, whose religious sex practices so shocked orthodox Christian contemporaries that they were condemned, their cults of spiritual gnosis and "redemption by sin" driven underground.
Churton exposes the mystery of Sophia in the philosophy of the medieval Troubadours and explores William Blake's inheritance of secret Renaissance sexual mysticism through the revolutionary English poet Andrew Marvell.
Showing how Blake's sexual and spiritual revolution connects to modern sexual magic, Churton also examines the esoteric meaning of the free-love explosion of the s, revealing how sex can be raised from the realm of guilt into the highest magical sacrament of spiritual transformation.
