"Finally, a book both my mother-in-law and I can enjoy!"
"Red Hot and Holy is stunning on so many levels. I simply couldn't put it down! This, ladies and gentlemen, is what the Divine Feminine looks and feels like-embodied, immediate, down-to-earth, and completely accessible. Bravo, Sera Beak!"
-Christiane Northrup, MD, author of the New York Times bestsellers Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause
"Sera Beak blazes with bold and flowing passion for the direct mystic transmission and primal creative power of the sacred feminine. Red Hot and Holy is juicy, funny, raw, and a wonderful contribution for modern-day soul adventurers."
-Shiva Rea, yogini
"What do you get when you combine a weird, hip angel of a thirty-something woman, advanced training in the study of religion, laugh-out-loud writing, God as Girl, and a direct encounter with cosmic soul no longer "tricked into a tradition"? You get Sera Beak. You get this book, which is really not a book at all, but a living revelation, an American Gnostic gospel posing as a spiritual memoir."
-Jeffrey J. Kripal, author of Authors of the Impossible: The Paranormal and the Sacred
"Red Hot and Holy is wildly original, hilariously funny, and deeply wise. I think it can start a movement of the great and good and maenadic ladies of the Red persuasions. It is truly cataclysmic and magnificently dangerous! I would join up even in my now-76th year. It is what life is all about."
"This is a brave, untamed, and yes, holy and hot book. Sera Beak describes a spirituality unfettered by dogma (traditional or new age). Like all true mystics, Sera's words compel us to fearlessly confront whatever stands in the way of our awakening. Sera Beak is pioneering new pathways."
-Gail Straub, teacher, activist, and author of Returning to My Mother's House: Taking Back the Wisdom of the Feminine
