“You kinda can’t help but wanna make sorta crazy wild naughty love to all of existence. ‘Cause at some point, no matter how brief you’ve been sorta fist-fucked by mother nature, you’ve been sorta spread open by life and all of it’s craziness. So you look for ways to return the favour.” ~ Sera Beak, “The New Man Episode 63: Bust Out of the Cultural BS and Follow Your Own Path

I fell in love with Sera Beak‘s take on embodied spirituality when she was interviewed for The New Man Episode 63: “Bust Out of the Cultural BS and Follow Your Own Path” and was drawn in by her energy again when she was featured on Sex, God, Rock ‘n Roll. Her wonderful playfulness and willingness to embrace the fullness of expanded personality are sorely missing in many approaches to spirituality.

Beak’s enthusiasm for living, spirituality and beauty is genuinely contagious. So I felt compelled to share a short video clip recorded with Stuart Davis and some rollicking samples of her words.

The Red Book is nothing less than a spiritual fire starter—a combustible cocktail of Hindu Tantra and Zen Buddhism, Rumi and Carl Jung, Kali and Mary Magdalene, goddesses and psychics, shaken with cosmic nudges, meaningful subway rides, haircuts, relationships, sex, dreams, and intuition. It’s a book that encourages women 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 for women to find their true selves and start sharing that delicious truth with the world.

I wrote The Red Book because I’ve found that many spirituality books are just too woo-woo, academic, serious, traditional, cheesy or boring for my generation. I wrote TRB because I grew giddy when I imagined what this planet might be like if more young women empowered themselves from the inside out. I also wrote TRB for roughly one million personal reasons that sound a lot like my heartbeat and taste a lot like chocolate and if spoken aloud would definitely make a priest faint.

I’m Sera Beak, a Harvard-trained scholar of world religions and intrepid spiritual cowgirl who spent the last 12 years traveling the world exploring spirituality — from whirling with Sufi dervishes to meeting the Dalai Lama on my 21st birthday; from taking the host from a Croatian Catholic mystic who had the stigmata (truly) to having life-altering visions with a shaman (and everything in between). I’ve synthesized my experience and research into a new book and have come to one conclusion.
(it’s not what you think)

The Golden Age of divine booty calls

Is not in the ancient past

It’s right now

So then the question becomes:

How the hell do we wink back?

One answer: By turning red, of course.
