About this site

This site is dedicated to creating greater safety and spiritual intimacy between spiritual teachers and their students.

This is not a site of finger-pointing, blaming, or the chronicling of spiritual teachers’ misdeeds. Nor is it a place for excusing or explaining away spiritual teachers’ misconduct. Its focus is on building stronger, safer student-teacher relationships—and stronger, safer spiritual communities. This includes reducing future misconduct by spiritual teachers.

This site also contains information on the book Sex and the Spiritual Teacher: Why It Happens, When It’s a Problem, and What We All Can Do, which was published by Wisdom Publications in March 2011, as well as information on the book’s author, Scott Edelstein, and his talks at bookstores and spiritual centers. This site also contains an excerpt of the book, related articles on the subject, and audio and video interviews with Scott.
