Summary
Join Jalaja Bonheim on a fascinating journey of exploration as she invites dozens of women from a wide range of spiritual traditions and backgrounds to tell the stories of their sexual experiences. By sharing our stories, and by contemplating them in the context of the spiritual journey, we begin to heal centuries of repression and shame and rediscover the innocence and beauty of sexual pleasure. The stories gathered in this extraordinary book open our eyes to the rarely acknowledged power of sexual experience to serve as spiritual teacher and guide
