Poetry has a unique function in the human psyche. It reaches down into the soul of the reader with a loving caress and says, "I see you. I hear your longing and desire, your heartbreak and your sorrow. I am your friend. Let me walk beside you." In the same tradition as the great devotional poetry of Rumi, Rilke, and Hafiz, Tina Benson's rich collection of erotic and devotional love poems and writings is such a friend. As you savor each poem let her walk beside you, and may you hear your own soul singing.

Imagine discovering the man you love is a narcissist with a double life. In this biographical story, Tina Benson describes in raw, visceral prose, the heartbreaking account of her journey to understanding how she fell in love with a narcissist, why she stayed in the relationship for so long, and how it related to her childhood traumas and losses. Using her 30+ years of experience as a life coach and spiritual teacher, she expertly weaves together the perspective of a clinician and a spiritual warrior, with her own personal journey through love's sometimes harrowing labyrinths, and gives the reader a map for understanding their own relationships. Understanding how our childhood experiences shape our strategies for getting and keeping love, Ms. Benson's book will save readers years of heartbreak and frustration. The culmination of her journey encourages and inspires the reader to turn inwards to find a self-sustaining, mature love known to spiritual aspirants as the "Inner Marriage."

This is a story about love, loss, passion, betrayal, heartbreak, and ultimately forgiveness, healing, and redemption. Both men and women will find Tina's story illuminating, informative, instructive, and inspiring.

A practical guide for both individuals and couples to transform sexual energy into spiritual and erotic fulfillment • Explains how to awaken advanced stages of sexual development for spiritual intimacy and deep erotic satisfaction • Includes illustrated instructions for exercises and techniques based on yoga, kundalini, breathing practices, mantra chanting, and chakra meditation • Explores how this practice can deepen a life partnership, enhance creativity, heal emotional scars, and awaken new understandings of gender Sexual development does not end in adolescence. There are advanced stages of glandular, emotional, and erotic development based in the lifelong “puberty of the spine.” Known in India as kundalini awakening, these stages form the energetic basis of all yoga forms and deeper erotic aspirations. They present an opportunity for couples and individuals to explore the consciousness-expanding abilities of sexual energy as both spirituality and sexuality transform into what Michel Foucault called ars erotica, far beyond the Freudian scientia sexualis sexuality of the Western world. Offering a guide to the advanced stages of human sexuality and a passionately infused tantric yoga practice, Stuart Sovatsky explains how to awaken the complete spinal puberty, resulting in spiritual intimacy and orgasmic pineal maturity that far surpasses the gratifications of modern sexuality. With illustrated instructions, he reveals flow-yoga asanas, mantras, and devotional breathing practices for solo kundalini yoga as well as couples’ yoga practices and chakra meditations to awaken the heart and the divinely eroticized mind. He shares inspiring stories from those on this path about ever-deepening life partnerships, enriched family life, enhanced personal creativity, profound new understandings of conception, masculinity, femininity, and gender itself as well as healing emotional scars of romantic breakups and sexual abuse. Sovatsky shows that by transcending conventional Western sexuality and returning to the ars erotica beliefs of ancient India, we can harness the divine energy--glimpsed for only an instant by most people--at the heart of all erotic yearning.

Praise for "SAVOR ETERNITY" Alfred K. LaMotte is truly the rarest kind of alchemist. With each poem in this exquisite collection, he weaves ordinary words into pure gold, inducting the reader into a direct experience of the sublime ineffability of life itself. Sourced from the depths of his own awakened heart, his words will pierce straight through to your own tender heart, igniting and awakening you. LaMotte stands with Rilke, Rumi, and Hafiz in beckoning our souls to awaken. Let each poem be a mystery that you discover and savor as you would a lover. TINA M. BENSON, international bestselling author of " A Women Unto Herself: A Different Kind of Love Story" The poetry of Alfred K. LaMotte speaks to my soul of long lost love, and redeems my heart from a fall that I cannot even remember. Somehow he makes the total mystery of existence feel all right. Susanne Marie, meditation guide and founder of Transformation Through Presence TM Inside this poetry is the deep perfume of God, a vast pool of light and pure generosity. Here are bees, honey, and simplicity of Being. That is why every time we read his poetry, we are nourished, uplifted, and we never tire of reading them again and again. Guthema Roba, poet, author of "Please Come Home " and "Wake Up and Roar" Alfred K. LaMotte's writing simply and actively opens the heart, inspiring and enlightening without ever a heavy-handed word of preaching or lecture. In pure authenticity and elegant vulnerability, he writes with the clear heart of a true meditation teacher, and shows us the way Dian Lang, Author of "Opening to Meditation," Huffington Post columnist, and director of LifeWorks Center for Growth in Los Angeles TM. This is a stunning and prophetic book, courageous in its commitment to the living milk of the Mother, disturbing our complacency and our stagnant idealization of who She is or how She must appear. These poems joyously report that here, and right here, is where we taste the cardinal fulfillment of our essential nature. The Feminine, as a psychic force, reaches far beyond biological sex, and thus cannot be wholly claimed by the female voice (tempting as this might be after centuries of inequality and abuse). In his new book, Alfred K. LaMotte speaks from a breadth and wholeness that is the undeniable sign of Her presence. These poems help us see that the creaturely and the divine are not eternally set apart: they can be recognized as a single gesture of invitation to a much finer, more generous participation in the real. Britt Posmer, painter, performance artist and poet, author of "The Angel and the Heretic"
