Alexandra Roxo

Alexandra Roxo is an author, artist, speaker, mentor, and spiritual guide who has been sharing her heart publicly for nearly two decades. Twelve million people watched her Vice show Life as a Truck Stop Stripper, where she went to work at a truck stop strip club, and which was later adapted into a pilot with executive producer Spike Jonze. Her web series Be Here Nowish was featured in Vogue, The New Yorker, and London Times. She has also supported thousands of women in their journey towards self-embodiment and recently authored the book F*ck Like A Goddess.

In this inaugural video podcast, Alexandra and Paul F. Austin, founder of Third Wave, chat about ayahuasca, sexuality, inviting epiphanies through non-resistance, breaking patterns, and facing our shadows.

With a career traversing genres, but with a through line of exploration of the female body and feminine traditions, Alexandra has been making art, writing, and sharing her heart publicly for nearly two decades. She appeared in The Knick opposite Clive Owen as a hooker doing speedballs. Twelve million people watched her Vice show Life as a Truck Stop Stripper, where she went to work at a truck stop strip club, and which was later adapted into a pilot with executive producer Spike Jonze. Her web series Be Here Nowish was featured in Vogue, The New Yorker, and London Times. She’s also acted in TV shows, directed commercials, and written plays.

Not surprisingly, she has amazing stories to tell—from her time dancing and shooting machine guns in a New Mexico club, to living with monks abroad, going undercover in New York City brothels, meeting the Castro family on assignment in Cuba, studying at witch camp, learning from a sex cult, and much more. She has also mentored thousands of women to embody their full magnificent self, led retreats around the world, and authored F*CK LIKE A GODDESS, a book that debuts in 2020 via publisher Sounds True.
