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 (2010)

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.
