Hello & Welcome! My name is EkstasY
I am a writer, herbalist & expressive pole dancer
I am in love with the sensuality of herbs: the magic of seed transforming to flower, the ripening of fruit on the vine. I cannot resist the scent of fresh rosemary, roses, or wild oregano. And I become weak-kneed at the sight of dried herbs in apothecary jars.
My first experience of belonging to a place was in the woods behind my childhood home in the northeastern United States. It was there, crafting potions of mud and roots and dancing along the creek, that I felt the power of place. My tiny pagan heart whispered its secrets to the rocks and trees and I felt rooted, in my skin and in the ground.
Today, my creative work explores this relationship between humans and landscape: how soil, stone, and water shape our bodies and our identities.
As a Greek American, I am especially inspired by the mythology and plantlore of my ancestors: those ancient stories ripe with eroticism and deeply rooted in Mediterranean soil. And as a pole dancer, I am fascinated by the connections between dance, sensuality, and the raw power of nature. I find resonance with the Maenads — those ancient followers of Dionysos who surrendered to ecstasy and celebrated their wild nature.

It is my deepest hope that you find inspiration and liberation from these ceremonies, stories, and creations. With every embodied movement and every act of love for the land, we plant the seeds of an ecstatic revolution.
