Buddha's Bedroom burst off the page with such hope for love it actually made me weep and laugh like a good novel! When was the last time non fiction did that for you? What a refreshing departure from so many wellness books that are written by so called gurus with no credentials who spiritualize narcissism. Dr Cheryl Fraser's book is the antidote to all that "goop". She actually IS an expert in her field with decades of learning, practice and mentoring and her experience, intelligence and clarity show in this book. I love the humility and accessibility of the ideas presented, they are refreshing and profound. I felt I learned something relationship altering even within the first twenty pages. It was wonderful to get an insight into the Buddhist practice and how it can apply to sexuality. That said, this book isn't just for Buddhists, the truths are universal. I am a Christian and I found the principles here entirely compatible with my own spiritual practice. Thank you, Dr. Cheryl for sharing what you've learned with us. This book is an act of generosity.
