Mirror of Intimacy
Daily Reflections on Emotional and Erotic Intelligence
By Alexandra Katehakis & Tom Bliss
Winner: Sexuality/Relationships | Purchase →
Mirror of Intimacy contains a year’s worth of daily reflections that explore and support the range of human sexualities as a divine gift and a human right. The reflections reference a rich array of approaches: attachment theory, mind/body nexus, neurobiology, 12-step principles, meditation techniques, Eastern and Western philosophy, and ancient world myths. Unfettered by cultural, social, or religious norms, we set our intention to examine 366 topics related to sex and sexuality.
A reader writes, “Mirror of Intimacy is a ‘vade mecum,’ one of those books which you don’t let out of your sight. As a psychologist, I am happy to have this magnificent creation to use with clients and patients leading to their enrichment, joy and celebration of life. The book will soon be one of the important therapeutic tools in our field.”
It’s a promise–these pages will erotically enlighten you and your world!
