This book is written by a man and a woman who are 14 years apart, and who have studied and live the practices of sacred intimacy. While this book is spiritual in essence, it is NOT RELIGIOUS. It's raw, real, and gritty, and is not associated with any specific religion or traditional spiritual system. It applies ancient spiritual principles to the modern relationship.
This book is written specifically for women who've excelled in most areas of life, but have found themselves still struggling in the area of love. In the book, there are sections specifically written by the woman (Londin) and sections specifically written by the man (Justin), while the majority of the book is a combined narrative of both authors.
This book describes what it means to attract, sustain and deepen inside of Sacred Relationship in the modern age. The book also explains how the traditional gender roles in intimacy ("masculine" and "feminine") are becoming more and more dated, and in order for men and women to continue maintaining polarity (erotic passionate connection) in their relationship, they have to find a new way of relating, that goes beyond the man "wearing the pants" and the woman "caring for the kids, prepping meals, and cleaning."
What Londin and Justin present in the book is this new model that allows for both men and women to embrace their full power inside of relationship, and how to keep polarity (erotic passion) alive by using a system they call "The Three Pillars of Sacred Relationship." The book maps out these 3 pillars in detail, using real life examples and step by step practices and teachings. The tone of the book is very deep and heavy, (could easily cause the reader to cry at times and will feel like an intense personal growth workshop) and it is very delicately balanced with a fun, playful, light-hearted humor that is peppered throughout the book. It doesn't take itself too seriously, but the message is very powerful and spiritual in its essence.
(below is the short introduction of the book)
"Message to the Awakened Woman
Justin and I wrote this book for the awakened woman—a woman who is understanding life on new terms, who has achieved the same things men are used to achieving, but might feel unmet by career alone, and long for deeper love.
She may even feel at odds with herself. One part of her—the purpose-driven part—has been totally liberated, loves that nothing is stopping her from creating anything she wants; but her heart stands divided because the other part of her—the love-driven part—stares at the ceiling at night crying for more. It longs to be cherished, seen and claimed.
This book is for the next generation of women who are stepping into sharing power with men. These women have a choice: they'll either model patriarchal trends of ruling, disembodied and dominating, or they will create something we've never seen before, where the tenderness that lives in every woman's heart becomes the thing that makes the difference.
The awakened woman cannot cut herself off from her body. Her heart won’t let her. So she awakens through love. She calls in a deep man who opens her more than she can open herself. He peels back her layers, helping her find divine surrender, giving her the ability to tune more clearly to the wisdom that lies within her than she could on her own. She goes back into her power position the next day, wide open and connected to the divine, and creates something the world has never seen.
This is a powerful time in history. Women have the opportunity to step into their destiny as leaders without losing the precious love-driven side of them. It is the desire for love which leads them into partnership, and partnership is what nourishes them as they lead. I know for myself I would not be able to stand in half of the luminescent power that I hold if it wasn't for my relationship with Justin. It is not my power—it's the power of the two of us as a channel that is coming through me. It's not me and it's not him, it's both. It's the checks and balances of each other’s perspectives. It's the opening we create together, an awakening for each of us that's not possible without the other.
A revolution is on the horizon—a revolution of women in positions of influence, supported by men of consciousness—two serving as one.
This revolution starts in relationship, two beings in devotion to one another, awakening within each other: love, purpose, luminescence, power, pleasure, and happiness. Imagine what will change for the whole of humanity when each and every awakened woman starts living as love without hesitation, without compromise and with a daily full-body yes to the call of the heart.
The way to hear that call is to ask yourself one simple question and trust the answer. The question is:
How do you need to give your love before you die?"
