Ignite Your Divine Spark

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. 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.

"GORGEOUS! . . . A deep, smart, and authentic guide to being more indelibly and powerfully yourself."

—SARK, author/artist, Succulent Wild Woman

"A modern, femme fatale spirituality. The book lives up to its 'unorthodox' subtitle . . . poignant insights throughout."

Publishers Weekly

"Every so often there comes our way a glorious chunk of life so utterly unique that even the jaded blink twice. The Red Book is just such a chunk . . . refreshing, sparkling, effervescent . . . a psychic shower for the soul."

—Neale Donald Walsch, author, Conversations with God

"If you're hungry for real magic but allergic to self-righteous jive, sit yourself down at this feast."

—Rob Brezsny, syndicated columnist, Free Will Astrology

"Smart, stylish, divine!"

—Cameron Tuttle, author, The Bad Girl's Guide to Getting What You Want

"Beak's knowledge is far-reaching. Her lightness of being is worth taking seriously."

—China Galland, professor, Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley, California; author, The Bond Between Women

Synopsis:

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.

About 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.

I bought Ms. Beak's book at a time when I was trying to figure out how to nurture my spirituality without joining an organized religion that I didn't completely agree with. This book did ignite my divine spark, it re-ignited my curiosities in the human spirit and was a kick to read. She is very well-educated on religion/ spirituality and her advice comes from experience and knowledge. I would recommend this book to women of all faiths, cultures and backgrounds. Fantastic.
