So begins author Jalaja Bonheim in this extraordinary guide to filling life with awe, joy, and passion. According to ecstasy is the spiritual food that nourishes the soul. She believes that many of society's problems—anorexia, depression, violence, drug addiction—exist because people do not know how to truly experience love and ecstasy in life. In The Hunger for Ecstasy Bonheim uses her own journey to show readers how to infuse life with passion. Drawing on spiritual and cultural traditions, she invites the reader to approach life as a lover. With anecdotes, examples, and exercises, The Hunger for Ecstasy is a watershed book that will immediately help readers partake of the divine feast of life.
