It s oh-so-quiet...and then - zing! Cupid s arrow skewers a primitive part of the brain, we fall in love amid showers of passionate fireworks, bond for a time and then often stop responding to one another, perhaps even pursuing a new love interest. There is a secret to sex, spoken of in the disciple Philip s gnostic gospel, which leads beyond mammalian programming and grants sexual union immense spiritual power. Ancient sages recognized this sacred art of transcending the addictive biological snare and named it hieros gamos, the Sacred Marriage or the ultimate union. Using cutting-edge neuroscience, psychology and medicine, together with wisdom from antiquity, Marnia Robinson explores this cosmic secret and reunites lovemaking with healing, balance and continually replenished intimacy and tenderness. With the help of this book, you too can enter into the secret of the ultimate union.
