Aphrodite's Magic goes far above and beyond being a regular sex manual. It's a recipe book showing us how to become women of more wisdom and power, and helps us to cook up more love for ourselves and each other. --Annie Sprinkle, Ph.D. Sexologist
Aphrodite's Magic is an exquisitely simple book, beautifully reminding us just how simple nature is and what profound power is in that simplicity. Full of tenderness, tears, laughter, creativity and dance all wrapped up in the velvet candlelit gorgeousness of a sensual magical spell Jane Meredith guides the reader, inspiring her to walk the journey entirely in her own sweet way. --Emma Restall Orr, Druid, author of Kissing the Hag
Acknowledging, embracing and invoking our essential feminine qualities heals, empowers and strengthens our consciousness as women, individually and collectively. Jane Meredith, with sensitivity and passion, delicately weaves the reader into the very fabric of Aphrodite s Girdle. She inspires us to move forward by reaching back to female archetypal forces which arise naturally when we surrender to the spirit of the present through ritual. An exceptional resource for women on a quest for healing, balance and discovering the source of pure love lying within. --Diana Richardson, Acclaimed Tantra teacher and author of The Heart of Tantric Sex

Reading through I got really interested in the practical hands on approach to women's problems with their body and idea of beauty.
Being a social worker that is also doing counselling I have met so many women who had a totally dissociative view of themselves, their body and their sexuality that I was quite happy to read about techniques that involve the whole person, body and mind, rather than just another advice book on how to change your way of thought.
The book is easy to read, doesn't pretend to be anything it isn't and is good fun to work through.
You can work with it in on your own but I would prefer to do it in a group since sometimes the emotions that may arise are too much to deal with on your own, especially when some sort of abuse plays a part.
If you like dancing, like myself, this is an extra bonus, since a lot of the exercises involve dance.
The title "Heal your Sexuality" is slightly misleading since it is more about body image,enjoying sensuality and how you see yourself than sexuality. Though surely a better body image and the art of allowing sensuality in your life will lead to a better and healthier sexuality.
The only point I stumbled over was the pleating bit, since I am not very good with craft-work I still have no clue as how to do this...there is no real explanation in the book...so I haven't made my girdle yet.
The invitation to experience the energies of this Goddess within your own body is to my mind its greatest strength. To practice seeing the world, other women, and one's self through eyes that look for beauty in all things, radically cleansed my own perception. As a psychotherapist I work daily with women who judge their bodies against the distorted cultural ideals, and struggle with self esteem issues. This book written in a personable style, presents exercises and reflections which gently encourage the reader to question some of the prevailing ideas and assumptions about what it is to live as a spirited soul in a woman's body!
The further we travel into the pages the deeper we came into relationship with women's mysteries, and the greater the appreciation and confidence we had in our individual and group sharing. Working with the book in our group enabled us to spark off one another's ideas and to provide ongoing support and encouragement to sit with difficult issues. The opportunity to talk honestly with other women about some of the delicate and personal questions of sexual experience, desire and response was a first for me, and I was the better for what I learned!
This book can be approached from many levels I have used some of the exercises with individual clients, but feel that the experience is most rewarding when embarked on by a group of women that work right through over a number of months. It is a multisensory experience stimulating thoughts feelings and appreciation of the body and its creativity. A celebration of life lived in a female body and an feast of all that Aphrodite holds sacred! -enjoy!
