Shanti Owen is the Legal Courtesan. She was an 80's super model (formerly known as Patty Owen) regularly featured in Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire, Harper's Bazaar, and Cosmopolitan magazines. She was also an upcoming actress that appeared on popular TV shows like NBC's Miami Vice. Shanti left Hollywood due to sexual abuse issues in the industry and abandonment issues that were rekindled as she lost dozens of her closest friends to the AIDS epidemic.


In search of healing, Shanti embarked upon a spiritual journey for many years. During this period she adopted the name “Shanti” which means “peace” in Sanskrit. Shanti is deeply committed to us finding peace on earth as individuals and through our intimate relationships. To that end, she has been immersed in over 33 years of research and training in transformational, spiritual, sensual, and relationship modalities. Shanti's major areas of study include Dan Fauci's Actor's Mastery of Self Expression, Werner Erhard's EST training, Transcendental Meditation, Louise L. Hay, More University, The Landmark Forum, David Deida, Kabbalah, Personal Dynamics, and numerous yoga and tantra programs.


Twice divorced, Shanti keeps connected with both her ex-husbands and fosters a close relationship with her father, sister, 22-year-old daughter, and her many close friends. Shanti's mother passed in 2011 and with her death came the death of Shanti's denial. Shanti finally got clear that she had a sex/love addiction that was unconsciously guiding her every decision, many of them very dangerous. Shanti is extremely grateful that her mother's death shook her up and woke her up. You can read more about Shanti's awakening in her upcoming book, Memoirs of a Legal Courtesan: A sex/love addict's journey into wholeness...
