Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this all-inclusive book, marriage and family therapist Gendreau focuses on sacred sexuality-the melding of body and mind that allows lovers to experience the ecstasy of true communication. Pulling together the wisdom of spiritual teachers, therapists, and such writers as Deepak Chopra, Harriet Lerner, and John Gray, Gendreau provides insights into the subjects of loving imperfection, healing broken relationships, risking authenticity, rediscovering passion, and seeing the connections between eros and intimacy. It might be said that concern for life's spiritual dimensions will usher in the second phase of sexual liberation; if that's the case, this book leads the way. Recommended for all libraries.
