About the author (2010)

   Stephen and Ondrea Levine, known widely for their groundbreaking techniques in healing, share the path of self-discovery and the daily expedition toward grace.  Having raised their three children and moved into the deep woods, they have for the past seven years been committed to a "relationship experiment of considerable song and intensity." They focus nearly all their energies on the exploration of tandem healingphysical, emotional, and spiritual. For those curious to take this process deeper, the Levines have made available cassette recordings of the guided meditations and techniques that form the superstructure of this work.  For a catalogue send a self addressed, stamped, envelope to:
