Description

When one person dares to speak her truth, it challenges us all to live our own. With Red Hot and Holy, Sera Beak offers a provocative and intimate view of what it means to get up close and personal with the divine in modern times.

With a rare combination of audacious wit, scholarly acumen, and tender vulnerability—vibrantly mixed with red wine, rock songs, tattoos, and erotic encounters—Sera candidly chronicles the highs and lows of her mystical journey. From the innocence of her childhood crush on God; through a whirlwind of torrid liaisons and bitter break-ups with Christianity, Buddhism, Sufism, Hinduism, and the New Age; and finally into committed monogamy with her own Red Hot and Holy Goddess, Sera shares transformative insights, encouraging us all to trust our unique path and ignite our own spiritual love affair.

Sera Beak's luscious writing and renegade spiritual wisdom that slices through religious and new age dogma made her debut book The Red Book a breakout success. With Red Hot and Holy she offers a far more personal book—an illuminating, hilarious, and above all utterly honest portrait of the heart-opening process of mystical realization. This hot and holy book invites you to embrace your soul, unleash your true Self, and burn, baby, burn with divine love.

Review for Red Hot and Holy Review by Alan Kirk
Rating

Red Hot & Holy is brilliant! I originally bought this book for my daughter, but after she read it and loved it (and my wife, too), I decided to read it as well. It is a beautifully written memoir - authentic, frank, funny, serious, whimsical, and deeply spiritual (to the extent that words can convey spirit). I especially appreciate the blend of strength and vulnerability Sera Beak brings to this work. I greatly admire her persistence in stripping away the many influences of our cultural patriarchy (of which I am a part) to come to a clearer knowing of a truly feminine spirituality, and I am so very grateful for her courage in sharing her insights.

Terrifically interesting and honest book of a born mystic's journey that can resonate for many women, certainly, it did for me and I'm no mystic!

Excellent, problem free interaction. There are many vendors I have dealt with in this current on-line world of book and music vending that could benefit from your style. Thank You.

Totally agree, Nora "The ultimate in modern narcissism. Oh ick." We know she loves herself, we know we know we know. Can we move on now?

Just into the book now. I connect to her personal experiences and quotes by mystics of different religious traditions and the allusion to RED in all of them. I appreciate both her scholarship and her audacious style. Thanks!

Wow! Girls Rule! I'm already in the process of changing all the "He" pronouns in the "Course of MIracles" to: Her, Child of God, Divine Mother/Father, etc...... You get the idea; it's an all inclusive Universe & it's time to put the power of SHE back into all Spiritual Studies. And Ms. Sera Beak puts a fire in our hearts, souls & determination to never let Her go ever again!!! No more 2nd class gender based Spirituality for this Universe; it's time to speak up, study & practice the Truth about the great Creatress/Manifester of Life! I LOVE HER!

This book was absolutely delightful and turned me into an avid Beak fan. It came at a time in my life when I was looking for a little bit more connection in my own spiritual path, and this book pointed the way.

We sold out of Red, Hot and Holy in a flash at the event I put on for Sera Beak in Washington, DC. It is an important contemporary account of genuine spiritual awakening.

Review for Red Hot and Holy Review by Michelle

Such a disappointment. I loved her first book. This one was more of an explanation of why she is qualified on spirituality. Apparently this chick gets more "winks" from the universe than the average bear and always gets randomly hit with a cosmic coincidence or her friend Emily who happens to be a medium guiding her through any emotional struggle and insecurity. Her editor was right that she fired, the book was terrible and basically bs. Too bad, author is talented just a bit full of herself.

I cannot even begin to share how moved I am by this incredible piece of art/writing/expression. I have read and explored through many, many avenues. Sera's book cuts right through to the heart of my soul. YES.

This book is brave. This book is true. This book is for real. Sera Beak is on it, in it, and standing with it. After I read this book, I started to live all those things I've been reading about...for years. You'll feel this book in your body; it's good to come home again.

Wow...this book really packs a punch. It's challenged my worldview, which I think is a good thing...not likely to become stagnant. I'm in the process of re-reading the book, mostly because I'm still not sure I understand who or what the Red Lady is. What I can say is that my dreams are definitely exploring and exploding with curiosity.

Review for Red Hot and Holy Review by Stephanie Pietkiewicz

"How strange my journey was... life has led me back to you, my Soul."


Sera Beak quotes from the Swiss Analytical Psychologist Carl Jung at the beginning of the second part of Red, Hot and Holy. Jung wrote those words around 100 years ago in what he called his Red Book. It is an uncensored document of one man's search for, encounter and reunion with his Soul. Only recently published, 50 years after his death, it shows us the deep work required to retrieve our Soul and to become what he called, an individuated Self. It involves facing the dark Shadow of our unconscious wounds and projections, while reclaiming and embodying ourselves in all our fullness. Ultimately this journey helps us embody our very own Essence, the gift that we’ve come to share with the world.

It takes immense courage to go on this journey. But to stand up and reveal it to others (while you’re still in your 30s) is brave beyond words.

That is why I feel immense gratitude for Sera Beak and her own Red, Hot and Holy book. Here, in language we can relate to, even though it’s richly woven with scholarship on the world’s psychoanalytic, spiritual and mystical traditions, a girlfriend sits down with us over a glass of red wine and has the courage to share in the most intimate, heartfelt, soul searching, gut wrenching, deep belly laughing, and Real way her own incredible Love Story with the Divine. It’s her life’s search for an authentic and individuated way to honour what she comes to know and embody as herSelf: the Red Lady of her Soul.

As Sera’s story reveals, the Soul’s journey is a wild ride. And she shares it with us in all its messy and mystical detail. Holding. Nothing. Back. Because of this I couldn’t put this book down. She describes being flamed by a contemporary mystic, erotic acts of Sacred Touch, mysterious appearances of Red Lady cheerleading teams, her intense experiences with JC, MM and Sarah, their daughter, and months of nights and days in a Red Tent where, losing everything of her former life, she wakes to the tenderness of her own Beloved’s arms. The book ends with Sera’s ongoing act of courage: the fragility and fierceness of honouring and embodying this great Love.

Why am I so grateful to Sera for this book? Her uncensored and ‘heretical’ words have made it safe for me to reclaim and honour my own mystical experiences of being kissed (and slapped and embraced) by my Inner Divine, as SHe calls me to be here, fully, home.

In this way, Red, Hot and Holy is much more than an unputdownable sexy, sassy and ‘potty mouthed’ 'spiritual memoir'. It’s a map – scented and splattered with red markers (petals and blood) for each of us, should we choose to go on that strange journey back to find the Beloved of our own Soul.

Sera’s ‘map’ gives us courage to reclaim our own experiences with and embodiment of the Sacred Lord or Lady of our own Being. To show up as That, and to share It and Shine through It in the world. As such, this book is ‘an open-handed offering’, reminding us all ‘to shine our inner light.’ When Sera does this, it’s bedazzling.

Deep, deep Soul bows to you, Sera. Thank you.

I am so deeply grateful for this book! I listened to Tami's interview with her, and felt an emotional resonance with what she was saying, even before I understood the words.

The book has connected me with the Divine Feminine in a way that is alive and on fire - and fully embodied. There's so much I could say - but my recommendations: listen to the podcast, buy the book!
