The Red Book is nothing less than a spiritual fire starter -- a combustible cocktail of Hindu Tantra and Zen Buddhism, Rumi and Carl Jung, goddesses and psychics, shaken with cosmic nudges, meaningful subway rides, haircuts, relationships, sex, dreams, and intuition. Author Sera Beak's unique hybrid perspective, hilarious personal anecdotes, and invaluable exercises encourage her readers to live more consciously so they can start making clearer choices across the board, from careers to relationships, politics to pop culture and everything in between. For smart, gutsy, spiritually curious women whose colorful and complicated lives aren’t reflected in most spirituality books, The Red Book is an open invitation to find your true self and start sharing that delicious truth with the world.

Meet the Author
This is Sera Beak’s first book—in this life. She may write another. Or she may just stop trying to explain the inexplicable and build a bird sanctuary. Or she might finally create that cool toy for young girls she’s been dreaming about. She is happiest being a mover. But not of furniture. She lives in San Francisco, drives a purple car, cohabits with an effusive African Grey parrot named Anaya, and has an unnatural affection for human bloopers. She would love to hear from you. And You.

This beautifully written book is a 'must read' for any woman who is seeking to live life to the max. Sera Beak's chapters on Sexuality, Meditation, Dreams and Prayer are a virtual 'how-to' for women of all ages to 'peel back the onion' of their existence and reveal their true selves. Ms. Beak's ability to expose the patriarchial nature of the world's major religions, frees women to explore the 'divine feminine' in their lives. Ms. Beak is erudite, witty and grounded as she shares vivid stories of her personal journey from a Masters Degree of Theological Studies at Harvard, to a visit with the Dali Lama on her 21st birthday. Like Gibran's 'The Prophet', 'The Red Book' can be picked up and read whenever you need a 'divine fix'.I highly recommend this book, and eagerly await her next one.
