Jocelyn Woods is a poet, mystic, artist and model with a severe (rare and atypical) neuromuscular disease. Unable to stand or walk, Jocelyn has been semi-bedridden for 9 years, having experienced many excruciating illness on the threshold where life and death kiss, only to emerge with highly refined revelations and the passion to transmit them to her global brothers and sisters:
Amongst poetry, mystic revels, musical and visual expressions of myriad kinds, my passions for pushing the boundaries of Art and refining expression to the Highest Orders has led me to have a sudden upswelling, surging desire to create my first modeling portfolio...
It is my fervent wish to utilize my "crippled" body to illustrate and document the naked core of existence, specifically by experimenting with the fluidity of matter as experienced when one remembers their divine origins. I would like to portray, through an ongoing collaborative project, my encounters of Erotic Union with the Divine--highly sexually charged "raptures" that unveil the blinding core of being.
To go beyond the procreative urge, beyond even the societal concepts of the sexual revelation, to manifest a Sexual Apocalypse, in the original Greek meaning of apokolypsis: to unveil that which had been hidden; to disrobe."
