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.

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.

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!
