“In a world that is starving for ecstasy, this book offers powerful healing medicine. A passionate and wise invitation to open our lives and our souls to ecstasy, recognizing it for what it really is—the experience of our own divinity.”
—Deepak Chopra, author of How to Know God
Do you believe ecstasy is a rarefied state enjoyed only now and then by exceptional people? Do you yearn for more intimacy and passion in your life? In this book, Jalaja Bonheim makes clear that ecstasy (both physical and spiritual) is neither a luxury nor an aberration. It is your birthright, an essential form of nourishment that the soul requires for its well-being.
Join Jalaja on a journey with poets, mystics, lovers, and monks to learn how to infuse passion into all aspects of your life. Drawing from many religious and cultural traditions and with anecdotes from the lives of the thousands whom Jalaja has counseled, she provides inspiring ways to feed your spiritual hunger through greater intimacy with yourself, others, and Spirit. With illuminating chapters on sexuality and marriage, Jalaja brings all aspects of life into the ecstasy equation.
Jalaja also discusses fear, self-consciousness, and the other common emotions that pose roadblocks to our fulfillment, along with the repercussions we face when we starve ourselves of soul nourishment.
The Hunger for Ecstasy is about cultivating the joy and passion that will pull your spiritual life together.
