ground-breaking guide to where we are going in our loving relationships and why.
Love is our birthright, deep in the cells of our bodies. It's our most natural state. But we are not used to being in it. Our normal state is one of distance and distance breeds a particular distortion, a negative seeing and expectation of any stranger.
So, we are in crisis. We sometimes think of it as a crisis of resources, or ecologically as a crisis of survival. But if we can think of it in existentially in terms of relationship, we can see that above all it is a crisis of feeling.
Alchemy, with its ancient and powerful system and its profound grasp of our emotional and sexual being, is an astonishingly relevant framework for what we need to open to at this time. It opens the door so we can see into relationships as they can be - journeys of adventure into the heart of transformation. Using the stages of the alchemical process in a clear, illuminating and modern way, Jay Ramsay's new book is a map for this journey that he presents both psychologically and spiritually as well as experientially.
