Overview

When it comes to sex, most of us want more. The question is: more of what? According to David Deida, when the depth of intimacy you've been experiencing is no longer fulfilling to your heart and body-when you sense that sexuality should go far beyond an embrace of brief satisfaction-the time has come to explore your unique sexual path to the divine.

In Finding God Through Sex, this brilliant writer and internationally renowned expert on spiritual sexuality presents a revolutionary new way to love-one in which sex literally becomes an erotic act of devotional surrender, "making love, magnifying love, from the boundless depth of your heart through every inch of your body and in merger with your lover."

Through provocative vignettes that illuminate the many moods that color lovemaking, and direct instruction that speaks honestly to the masculine and feminine desires within each of us, Deida brings wisdom gained from 30 years' work with thousands of couples to illustrate the distinct yet complementary avenues men and women can skillfully travel toward untamed passion and sacred unity. What unfolds is an unparalleled road map to the place where we "love as the cosmos loves: One loving itself as an other, yet remembering itself as One."

    Best Manual for Relationships Ever

    This book is magnificent. I read David Deida's "The Way of the Superior Man," which was excellent, however I felt that it lacked in exploration of the feminine perspective on things. This book changes that entirely.

    From deep discovery into the experiences and processes involved in surrendering into the most fantastic sex of your life, to the spiritual focus of opening your heart more than ever before, "Finding God through Sex" lives up to its title. I had profound personal and relationship transformations occur due to this book.

    As a Pisces, and a very romantic lover, this took my personal intimacy to another level entirely. Sinking deeper into the moment, surrendering fully through the experience of pleasure or pain, expanding my consciousness and holding space for all that is... Or releasing my emotions, diving into the depth of sensation, light, and color, allowing myself to flow with the power of an ancient tide. These are just a few of the gifts David Deida offers for the avid explorer.

    There really are no compliments that I can give that rate this highly enough. All I can say, is buy the book or borrow it, check it out for yourself, and you will see what I mean. Enjoy!
