“It is tempting when describing Sera to reach for words that invoke other realms, her presence as angelic, her calling divine, her face ethereal. But all such words are unfair to Sera because what makes her so very special is her down and dirty commitment to her own humanity. When the material world came calling with its temptations and said, we’ve built this pedestal just for you, come and stand on it, Sera saw it for the illusion it was. Rather than wear the jewels of the false prophet she held her courage fast to her heart and dove into her very human fear to seek out her soul.
Sera is one of the most courageous women I know. She cleaves her hands deep into the loam of her soul, she smells it and tastes it and asks, “What is this?” In this way she has grounded herself in her humanity. And what she has discovered through her soul is the power of the feminine divine; not just for women but for all of us. Her gift to all of us is her revealing, without apology, of this most creative, alive force.
I have witnessed how much courage and sacrifice it has taken for Sera to live her own life without apology. I have witnessed her stumble through the dark brambles of her inner self in search of what she came to call her Red Lady. It is through this journey that she has gathered so much of her own force. It is because of her journey that Sera can grant each of us this gift, to see us in our humanity.
I can understand why people seek otherwordly words when sitting with Sera, it is because she has the ability to inspire you. Sometimes it can feel like gazing out over a vista from a great height. But that vista is actually the grand potential that exists inside you. It is the sheer depth and wonder of your own humanity. Working with Sera is not remarkable because she helps you access the divine. It is remarkable because she inspires you and guides you to access your self. With her fire and light she guides you to that most human part of your self, your soul.” – Judah Pollack, prophet, The Chaos Imperative
“There’s a version of The Little Mermaid fairy tale in which Ariel gets her wish granted to trade in fins for legs and gets to walk around with the mortals on land, but with the caveat that each step is like the stabbing of 10,000 knives. I have had the honor of knowing Sera Beak for over four years since she began her journey to fasten her soul and spirit securely in her mortal’s body and to tell the tale of the Divine Feminine walking around as a mere mortal. Although Sera rarely lets on, I know that each courageous step is something like Ariel’s multiple knifings.
Whenever I come to Sera, broken, sad, longing or confused, she reminds me, “and this? Can you Love, even with this?” Sera doesn’t write ABOUT what it means to be living Red, living the Divine Feminine, she writes AS Red, AS the Divine Feminine. The result is masterful transmission. The result is power that leaps off her page. The result is Love. It’s an ember that catches you fire with your own version of living Red. Hanging out in the land of mortals is rough on Sera. I am grateful for, and hugely admire, every sweep of her pen and every step she takes.” -LiYana Silver, Relationship expert
“In a world full of spiritual self-help teachers who are either feeding your ego, nourishing their own, or asking you to be less of Who You Really Are, Sera Beak is a refreshingly disruptive breath of light.” – Lissa Rankin, bestselling author of Mind Over Medicine
“Sera Beak is a game changer on the planet right now. Amidst a time in the world of mass exploration, one may even call it obsessiveness and/or addiction, of Spirit & Oneness, Sera reminds us to also wake up to our Soul & Uniqueness. She is what I call ‘the real deal’- raw, grounded, sincere, funny, steady, fierce and sweet all at once. Her love and yearning for connection with Soul is palpable in her presence. She is a profoundly selfless giver of what she Knows from her very intimate journey with her Soul, and is the biggest cheerleader for others to dive in just as deep, or even deeper, with theirs. Her yearning for others to do this is rich and thick, as she knows it is also imminent. She walks her Truth, she shares her Truth, she breathes her Truth and we are blessed she is alive and sharing her gifts with us in the way She does.” – B.H.
“Sera is eloquent, real, ON FIRE and grounded in a broad study and personal experience with religion, myth, and sacred spirituality. She is utterly electric and it is contagious! Every time I read or hear her, my divinity sparks and is bellowing ‘I’m in here-let me out NOW! ‘” – Dianna Dunbar
“If you haven’t experienced her yet, Sera Beak is as authentic as we come.” – Hannah
“In the endless sea of new-agey feel-goodism and its carbon-copy iterations, Sera is the real deal: raw, honest, wise, brilliant, and deeply inspirational. This is the kind of spirituality that truly leaves nothing out and I highly recommend a taste of it.” – Nirmala Nataraj
“Spicy yet sweet, ancient yet youthful, sacred yet playful, Sera Beak is a beautiful balancing of the worlds most sublime natures. Her presence exudes brilliant wisdom with a dash of wicked red hot goodness that she lovingly shares with those around. She is an activator, an agent of change and a gift that this world needs.” – Alessandra Sagredo
“Sera Beak is a fount of guerrilla splendor, a tender blast of reverent insurgency, a healing vortex of shocking beauty, a wildly disciplined devotee of freaky purity, and an uproarious dispenser of ethical mischief. I salute her with a playfully prayerful fist waving in the dream-inflamed sky.” – Rob Brezsny, Pronoia
SOUL FIRE SESSIONS
“There’s a spot on the coast of France where the tide recedes so far back that the landscape changes from a beach of simple, small stones to craggy, wild tide pools full of mussels and seaweed. The fresh water that feeds the sea is suddenly unveiled in strong currents pouring down the beach, and in the side of the cliff, a tunnel opens. I, who hate adventure travel, walked and crawled through that dark tunnel two weeks ago with no assurance of safety or knowledge of its direction. I came out on the other side laughing and crying and shocked to have ended up on a secret beach nestled between two dramatic cliffs. The wonders I discovered had been there all along, and of course, I had to engage all my trust and courage. That ancient, patient tide, though, is what revealed the path to me.
The whole experience reminded me of my Soul Fire Session. Sera operates like that tide, pulling away your waters so that you can see so clearly the beauty of your Soul. It doesn’t mean the path is easy to find or easy to traverse. The guarantee is only that your hour on the phone with her is low tide. Your cliffs and tunnels and the fresh water currents that feed you are laid bare, gently loved open by Sera and her Lady. My time with Sera was an opportunity to dip mysteriously into parts of myself I had never touched, and she graciously taught me a method to continue the practice on my own. She’s right; it’s not therapy or a coaching session. It’s much, much more.” – Laura Geiger
“Working with Sera allowed me to identify the true voice of my soul, in a way that is crystal clear and available to me at every moment now. I felt pulled to work with her because I was getting confused about which voice in my head and heart was my true soul voice — there are so many voices inside me! I was actually starting to feel afraid of my soul because it seemed to be taking me in a direction that didn’t feel right to me. I was unsettled. I am just so grateful that I reached out to Sera because within just a few minutes I was reunited with my soul and I felt just glorious. Sera is such a beautiful soul, so gentle, compassionate, and loving, and she acted as a channel for my soul and a guide on my journey. She provided me with images and insights that I could not have received anywhere else, and for that, I am forever grateful. If you are reading this and feel called in even the slightest way to work with her, I encourage you to reach out to her now. Your soul has guided you to her for a reason.” – Meghan Kerner
“I have always had a strong connection with my intuition, even as a child I would get intense “feelings” about people and situations and have trusted this inner knowing to varying degrees throughout my life, there have been many times that I have ignored, questioned and doubted these messages because I didn’t have the right words to explain where they came from, to explain them to my rational mind. And then I found Sera.
I too come from a “spiritual” background, always seeking but never finding the “right” path, I felt like I was always walking the spiritual road in someone else’s ill fitting shoes. But the first time I heard Sera speak my heart knew, something about the way she described the soul and the soul path resonated deep down to my very core, I immediately sought her out and signed up for a Soul Fire Session, my soul knew she held a key.
As soon as we got on the phone I felt completely held by Sera’s presence, she creates a container of sacredness, of complete safety and with her guidance I was able to encounter my soul on a deeper, more meaningful level than I ever have before, I finally felt and knew my own soul’s unique voice, without question, without doubt. With Sera’s encouragement I have continued to deepen my connection with my soul by creating space each day to be with her, to know the voice of your soul is a gift, to be able to pick her voice out of the crowd of noise and distraction is a blessing and to honor that blessing by acting on her wisdom is the work of a lifetime.
Sera’s authenticity and commitment to those on the soul path is unwavering, through our session I came not only to know the voice of my own soul but also the heart of a true soul sister. Sera is both a companion on my journey and a beacon I look to on my dark days. I am grateful, beyond words for her courage, vulnerability and strength and for the confidence she restored in me to trust my own inner knowing.” ~ Casey Erin Wood ~ Coach, Writer & Speaker ~ caseyerinwood.com
“As soon as I heard Sera’s voice my body felt at ease. My outer protective fortress crumbled and I could feel myself being fully witnessed in her presence. Her session are like no others. We do not speak from a mental space but instead step into a mystical realm inside ourself allowing our souls to mingle, play and converse. There was powerful knowledge and healing that came out of the session with Sera. It isn’t a journey for the light hearted. I was raw and tender afterwards but was gifted a sense of renewal and life. I am deeply grateful for Sera’s work.” – Sora
“Sera has a unique ability to tap into that still place within your soul and reconnect you to your true self and wisdom. During our Soul Fire Session, she helped me get past the cluttered thoughts of my mind and listen to what my heart had to say. Sera speaks directly from her soul and I felt her connect deeply with my own. The experience felt so honest, raw, and real. I am grateful to have been able to share what is in my heart with her and feel supported and understood. I felt as if a weight had been lifted off my shoulders and I could see the world with new eyes, refreshed and renewed. It was a blessing to talk with Sera, who has a special talent of finding that spark of fire within you and encouraging it to grow!” -Lauren Medeiros
“After reading RED, HOT, AND HOLY, I knew I needed to hear the “shaky, shatteringly high physical voice”of this remarkable woman, so I booked a session. Now comes the WOW! There have been some significant things happening in my life which I attribute to Sera greasing the gears of my soul, allowing her to slip up to the surface and get me moving again.
Twenty-five years ago, I wrote a children’s story about a little girl who copies her friends until she meets the queen in a dream and discovers that she lives right inside of her.“You are the queen! I live within!” and from that very hour, when Catie wonders who she is, she gazes in Her mirror, and Catherine smiles and nods her head, as if to say, “I’m here!”
My queen has been waiting in the wings for a few decades (I am 77 years old). I haven’t totally ignored her, but I’ve done a lot of “yeah, right’s” when she has tried to convince me of my royal heritage. Since speaking with Sera, I have so much more confidence in my gifts. These days, I am throwing my pearls hither and thither with very little attention to where they land or how they are received. It feels SO GOOD to just put myself out there as my little contribution to the planet, and not worry about the outcome. The response has been amazing BECAUSE I am so relaxed and in the flow and feeling the power of my Queen coming through. I use a hand mirror as one of my props when I am reading my book to children’s groups, and I got the brilliant idea to hold it up to each child as he or she moves back into the classroom, saying to their image, “You are the Queen” or “You are the King.” This is really what the session with Sera enabled me to do – finally! Powerful beyond measure.
Another result of coming into my soul more fully is that everything seems to go my way these days, with no effort on my part. Parking spots appear, connections are made, support is offered, and yesterday on the beach, four abandoned luxury chaise lounges and umbrella from the Waldorf Astoria (fit for a queen) right there for the taking! Can you hear me now?? ” – Juliana Howard
“A session with Sera is an opening to a conversation with the depths of your heart and soul. She has a gentle and powerful presence that invites forward everything that has been dancing in the background and is ready to come forward. You get the sense that Sera is working with your soul, sharing what you are ready to hear and honoring the importance of timing, allowing each illumination to happen in its own way. I have always found her to be a refreshing force in the world of spirituality. No show, no illusion, you get Sera, real, loving, and with a spark that will have you laughing and crying at the same time.” – Jenny C.
“I knew after the first chapter of Red, Hot, & Holy that this was exactly what I was looking for. I was nervous and excited for our session together. I was feeling a little shy. Sera made me feel at ease from the beginning. This was going to be a group effort. The first part of the session was great. I got to ease my intellect’s curiosity about what has been happening to me. I received concrete examples and guidance that my mind could grasp on to. Then, we really started to have some fun! I can’t explain in enough beautiful words what it was like to reunite with Sunny, my Soul! I remember the presence of this brave, fun, excited, loving being from childhood. There are a few other short periods of time when he was more present. It was like being reunited with my best friend that I had amnesia about. I remembered all the joy he brought into my life and wonder and love that poured out of me. I also had feelings of guilt and shame because I had put him in a box inside me. I only gave him a megaphone of sorts to clue me in when I really need guidance.
Since our session together, and the blissful reunion, things have really changed. Sunny was the piece of me I have been searching for. By allowing him to shine through me with the bright yellow sunshine energy that we are, everything I’ve wanted is possible. My dreams at night are filled with feelings like never before. In one I fell in love with a beautiful man and could actually physically feel all the amazing falling in love sensations that go along with it! My life is just blossoming because I don’t feel alone anymore. The weird part is, I didn’t know I had felt alone until Sunny was back in my life. We have been going dancing A LOT! I’ve started to receive all sorts of gifts and invitations. My healing practice is really getting going. My life overall feels like when the color comes on in the Wizard of Oz. I wake up excited to see what the day will bring. I know I’ve still got a long way to go, but I’m not as worried about “getting there” anymore. Sera, I can’t thank you enough for being the one to get us back together again. Watch out world!” – April G.
SOUL FIRE RETREATS
“If you are reading these testimonials to see if Sera’s Soul Fire retreat is right for you, pay attention not to my words but to what your Soul is trying to say to you: “Hey! Sista! Wake up! Over here!” Your Soul brought you this far; now that she has your attention, take the next step if you dare.
A word of caution: this retreat is not for everyone. It is not butterflies and birthday cakes. It’s about going down, not up. Embodiment not enlightenment. If you yearn for a deep relationship with Mother Earth, long to be reunited with your Soul, to get to the bottom of what’s missing in your life, if you are tired of the dime-a dozen-spiritual-retreats, which not to diss ‘em, but more often than not are fabulous at the time but fade to wisps of memory back in the real world, then come hang with Sera and her Lady in a magical place, roll up your sleeves and start on the real Work that needs to be done. Your life’s Work. This stuff ain’t over at the end of 5 days, it’s just beginning. Are you up for it? I sure as hell wasn’t but I did it anyway. I would not change a minute of it.” – Jane Usher
“Bone-shaking. Teeth-rattling. Earth-quaking. Stronger, bigger, deeper. Heart-breakingly beautiful. More practical, profound, simple, nuanced, anti-intellectual, wise, destructive, nurturing, ecstatic, grounded, refined, rude, challenging, easy, solemn, irreverent, profane, sacred, sensible, funny and HOLY than any spiritual practice, book, teaching, workshop or retreat I’ve attended (and I’ve seen more than a few). It’s very, very Red and very, very Hot. And it’s serious shit. So if you’re ready to get funky with your beautiful Soul, dive in. Don’t hesitate. Sign up, buckle up and get ready to come home.
WARNING: Attending the Soul Fire Retreat may destroy the foundations of a comfortable life. Best to be prepared for the possibility that something breathtakingly shocking may happen… followed by something so gobsmackingly wonderful, you would never have dared to dream it.” – Belina Noakes
“I am not someone who goes to retreats. I’m an introvert. Sharing makes me want to have convulsions or at best, sweaty panic attacks. Being sequestered, to me, is a euphemism for ‘trapped’ and lots of women together in an intimate group, frightens me. Women are complex. I should know, I’m one of them. But Sera Beak, her wisdom, her books, the Red Lady resonated with me so much, I overcame my usual IRD (coined by an ex boyfriend); Immediate Refusal Disorder. Let’s just say, it ain’t easy for me to leave my comfort zone.
I am So Grateful I did. I will never be the same again because I’ve grown exponentially as a result of the Soul Fire Retreat and the Sacred Land of Feathered Pipe Ranch. I am left with fewer words and much more love.
Thirty women in a room together lead by Sera Beak and her Red Lady is a Divine Mystery waiting to unravel.
Unravel is a good word. I feel unraveled! At first it was like I was in a Cosmic Washing machine with no direction, getting Cosmically put on the spin cycle, followed by another wash, soak and rinse and instead of going in a dryer, I was hung outside on the line to dry…to blow in the Mystical Winds of Feathered Pipe.
Renewed, enriched, with new friends, amazed, grateful, grounded, empowered…these are only a few descriptions of the gifts I received. None of it possible without Sera Beak and her Red Lady. Nothing but good can come of it the experience, a rare guarantee.” – Sunny
“After attending this deeply transformative retreat with Sera, I cam to the realization that all my years of spiritual study — the workshops, retreats and trainings — have only just served as preparation for this extraordinary immersion into and with my own Soul. Guided by Sera’s wisdom, patience, and powerfully vulnerable presence while surrounded by other courageous, true soul seeking women, I felt safe and called to enter the deepest, most private places within myself for questioning, exploration and insight. For those ready to unwrap the true face of what spiritual practice can be, those desiring to awaken and listen to the voice of their Soul and live according to the guidance, wisdom and love that is always and ever waiting, this is the moment upon which the rest of your life may very well spring from. It was for me.” – Keri M.
“After trying many times to simply describe what happened at Sera’s retreat I had given up.
Then, this morning, this came to me and it captures at least some of what I’ve been wanting to say about the extraordinary/ordinary immersion into relationship-with-Soul that happened at Feathered Pipe.
People can talk about strawberries. And they might sound interesting and great. You feel happy for them. Or maybe a little jealous. Or maybe a little confused if you’ve never tasted one.
Then there’s the moment you encounter your first just picked still warm strawberry. Taking it in your fingers, feeling the bumpy texture, bringing it to your lips, sinking your teeth in, that “whoa!” when the juices and the strawberry-ness burst in your mouth and you can hardly believe what’s happening.
At Sera’s retreat, we tasted the strawberries. We nibbled and licked and sucked and slurped and chewed and swallowed. We wiped up the red juices and then spilled them all over ourselves again.
Some were almost unbearably sweet. Some were sour. Some weren’t ready to be eaten but only held in the palm of the hand.
Some brought tears of joy. Longing. Grief for the years of just talking about strawberries without ever tasting one. Some led to that everything’s-changed-now-and-that’s-scary-exciting
place. A place of no return.
And yes, we talked about them. Of course we did! But when we did it was with the taste still in our mouths. Our bodies still opening and unravelling and pulsing or contracting, digesting and every cell being nourished while we talked. (Which reminds me … the actual food at Feathered Pipe was great!)
The land fed us, the silence, the kindness of the staff. All of which I’ve experienced at other
times and cherish. This retreat was different from those other times.
Okay… enough with the strawberries!
What about now? almost 2 months later? The relationship with my Soul is growing daily.
At times I forget. It’s kind of like falling in love with someone at a retreat and knowing you want to be together forever (in truth can’t ever really be separate again) and having to figure out how to re-do your whole life to make room for that love. And that love is also bringing up every old hurt and loneliness and doubt and pain that was impossible to feel until I could feel it with/as my Soul.
There really are no words to express the gratitude to Sera and all of the women who attended, all our Souls.” – Briana R.
“A Soul Fire Retreat is not your momma’s gal gathering. Nor is it sitting through meditations, chants, note taking on someone else’s idea of spirituality or the way to enlightenment. Sera has a gift of making this beginning journey YOUR very personal “redvolution” with her wise and witty, sometimes hard and heavy soulfilled way of discovery. It is not for the faint of heart or someone looking for a quick fix as it is on going and life-altering for the rest of your days. From 23 to 64, we gathered, we cried, we laughed, we danced and we left with confidence in ourselves and our new found sisterhood of Soul. It was magical, mystical, earthy and completely the best thing I have ever done for myself.” – Killian W.
“Sera is a reverent Soul in a tiny body with (catchy leggings no less). She has the innate ability to see what the soul wants, and teaches you how to get there. As far as the retreat itself, the phrase that comes to mind is “shit’s about to get real”, and it does….perfectly.” – HB
A testimonial from the Soul of a part-participant:
“She always tickled my fancy while belting out Depeche Mode in the shower or stomping out Beyonce flash mobs in the streets… then there was that time – in a dark time – her hands cupped the soft, furry face of her beloved dog Potus and electric love filled the surrounding air… the earthiness of truffle salt at her favorite San Francisco restaurant… I kept reaching out, to no avail. Then, when she started going to the ocean regularly, her ‘church,’ I thought for sure I was in… in her consciousness… but every night she still laid down, alone in her thoughts, a heaviness too deafening for the silence, never realizing the army of gods that hand-formed every molecule of this perfect being.
Be it the thrust of the land’s juju: Magical Montana, the alchemy of the earth-shattering beautiful souls called in at that pin-point in time or the ancient wisdom of Sera and the Red Lady… I give props to Divine Timing (the god of gods for us Souls) – the synapses were formed, the foundations poured, the breath everlasting knowledged… she felt the velvet of me and married me. The world is changed as we know it.
Thank you Red Lady for speaking to my human, Tamara. She thinks of you and cries in happiness. She thinks of me and cries in happiness. She skips around thoughts of the retreat and gathers more and more depth and clarity… a knowingness that doesn’t fade but grows stronger, raps poetic and expands. Expansiveness and light. She knows now that I am female and that the light was made for her. *Lux (the Soul of a participant called Tamara)
“For the last several years, I have taken care of dying patients and their families, and have often felt very helpless. This has driven me to work harder to change outcomes for them and block my pain. But the death and suffering has been very difficult to deal with. There has been a constant struggle inside me between my concept of science and humans as evolved but mortal physical bodies, versus spirituality and souls as eternal divine beings. When I sought Sera Beak and the soul fire retreat, I thought I needed an out and a push. After the retreat, I experienced a shift. I recognized what I have been doing for multiple prior lifetimes, is actually not very different from what I am doing now; providing support for souls – this time, as they exit. Now, I feel content and truly recognize and know that what I thought was separate (my work and spirituality) is actually one and the same thing. I am eternally grateful to Sera, my remarkable soul sisters (I met at the retreat) and the holy land (where the Feathered Pipe rests in MT) without whom/which I would have not experienced this soul-directed unification with life. – L.R.S.
“I am an introvert and the idea of spending days with a large group of strangers sharing my feelings and experiences is, to me, the last thing I want to do. (Actually, the very idea makes me break out into an uncomfortable sweat.)
Of course, sometimes, what a person *wants* and what a person *needs* are two very VERY different things.
If you feel a tentative tugging inside to break out of yourself, to allow yourself to be the flame and the moth drawn to it, listen. This is the experience that not only gives you permission to do that but encourages you to do so.
If you feel a whisper that there’s more to life, listen. This is the gathering where you are not only given permission to listen to your yearning, but encouraged to embrace it.
If you feel like you are alone, listen. And then let the stories of the people here fill that space within you. Because they are telling your stories and you are telling them theirs. Know that being lonely isn’t the same as being alone.
And know, deep in the very red marrow of your bones- know deeper than that even- that you are not alone. Know that you and your soul are a love story waiting to be told. Because you are. And sometimes it takes an encounter like this to really experience that. – Jeanne C.
“What I loved most about the Soul Saturation experience was how individual and personal yet Universal it was.
From reading Sera’s book, I knew the day would be a life-changing experience. What I didn’t expect was how sweet and loving it was. Watching Sera gently guide each person to connect with their Soul…to see their faces as they made the connection…that was a very powerful moment for me. I especially loved how Sera simply asked questions. She didn’t “tell” the person to do anything specific. Rather she guided them to use their own intuition and knowing to find the Truth. It was quietly magnificent.
Because of this experience, I’ve reconnected with the power of MY Soul and what S/He and I do, especially as it relates to my work with clients and with people in general. Knowing S/He is on my side as MY guide has helped me relax (surrender)? I realize now I See when people connect with the Truth inside them. It’s glorious and privilege to be a guide to help them do that.
This was a pure Soul experience. So grounded. So honest. So real. No guru headlining, no “know it all.” Just a real desire to bring people into authentic connection with their own Soul.” – Angie Mattson Stegall
“I have been staring at my screen for way too long, trying to find the right words to describe my weekend with Sera, in so many ways it is beyond description. I went into the weekend not really knowing what to expect, I had read her book and loved writing, her intelligence, her humility and excellent wit.
Within 30 minutes into the seminar, I was in love. Sera is the real deal, her ability to deeply connect with each and every individual in the room in uncanny. She is steeped in the most loving truth, and within minutes can shift your perspective, your limitations, your most vulnerable “stuff” comes up, is right there and yet somehow without trauma or fear, she is so loving and understanding and human in her own self, you just kinda melt. It was beautiful. She guides with such humility and honesty, you want to dig deeper into your own soul work, but also reminds you to be loving and take care of yourself, of your own beautiful soul. She emanates a mother’s love, truthful, unconditional, and encouraging growth in the highest form.
In the months following our weekend, I find myself more grateful, more in awe of the miracle of life, and naturally inspired to take better care of myself, to take time for myself. I cannot recommend Sera enough!” – Susan
“I had the honor of being with Sera at a Network Wellness retreat, in Charlotte, NC, over the summer. I didn’t know what to expect, but my expectations were high as I had already read ‘Red, Hot, and Holy’. Sera blew my expectations out of the water.
I wasn’t aware that I had disconnected myself from my soul, but this became clear during our time together. I was, gracefully, led to the time that I had done so. When I found her, I had the opportunity to feel the pain of what this had done, but I also had the pleasure of feeling her unconditional love of wanting nothing more than to be with me.
Sere also led me to a greater awareness of when my soul is speaking to me vs. other energies. I am, more easily, able to access the true knowing in my heart. While I still notice times where I have disconnected, at least. I can now notice so I can invite her back. It’s no longer scary because I don’t have the fear of her rejecting me. I know she is ALWAYS ready for the invitation.
These words don’t do justice what Sera has made available to me, and I cannot wait until our paths cross again!” – Jenn S.
“My Soul Saturation with Sera Beak was a direct initiation to the Divine Feminine in all of her glorious forms. I was challenged, devastated, inspired, supported, and held in electric, holy, red Love. Sera’s ability to be present, and to truly see and commune with another’s soul is a rare gift… filled with softness, grace, and power. Truly a blessed invitation to grow.” – Kari Giles
“The Soul Saturation day with Sera Beak was extremely humbling and exhausting, and I can honestly say that two months later I’m still reeling from the effects. I would even go as far as to say that the experience has changed me forever–however corny that may sound.
Twelve hours in a room with a hundred+ souls bouncing and squirming and interacting was unbelievably amazing. I read Sera’s book Red Hot & Holy to prepare for the event, but nothing could have prepared me for what was to unfold.
The most intimidating, gut-wrenching and raw experience was sitting in a circle with Sera while she spoke directly, patiently and intimately with every participant one-by-one. No one was rushed. No one was judged. No one could hide. This discourse lasted several hours and I was in awe of Sera’s sustaining focus and passion. I’ve never given much thought to my Soul and to have someone ask me in a room full of people what ‘does your soul mean to you?’, my response still haunts me today–but that’s haunt in a good way.
I must admit that I entered the Soul Saturation, not so much as a skeptic, but as someone who just couldn’t believe she was in this kind of setting. It all seemed so ‘woo-woo’. And at times I simply wanted to run from the room and hide. But the next day when I regained my footing, things were different. My interactions with people were different. My thoughts were different. My comprehension of songs was different. And to this day, I find myself talking to my Soul and asking it to stay with me, to make me strong, to make me calm. Sounds corny, but it’s absolutely true. Sera, thank you for a wonderful day and a wonderful gift. And thank you, Matt, for making it happen.” – Carolyn Cook
“Wow, that one Saturday Sera rocked my world with a Soul Saturation…it was truly amazing and life changing. It was true, authentic, raw, soul realness and absolutely moved me to tears. A deeply touching and beautiful experience. As Sera and her soul spent time with each of us and our souls, we learned, supported, loved, grew, and opened to new levels. For the first time, I learned how to truly sit with my soul. To feel, sense, and listen to her. And to watch Sera truly embody her soul…wow! What an amazing and angelic presence she is. Sera helped my soul with some of it’s uncertainties/weaknesses/fears. As a result I feel more courageous and strong than ever! I am so grateful for the time we shared and the gifts of each moment. I can now, at any moment, chose to embody and live from my soul. WHAT A GIFT!” -Natalie Earnhardt
“The morning of the Soul Saturation retreat, even before meeting Sera, I unexplainably wept from a deep holy place for hours. It was gentle and sweet, a remembrance, a letting go, a coming home, an end of a journey of searching, and crossing over into sacred place of embodiment. Her integrity, intentionality, honesty, and bad ass Holy self creates such a powerful container for transformation that my journey with her began even before I arrived at the retreat. Being with Sera ignited a deep remembrance and connection with my Soul, and our sacred Service, that I had buried and hidden from over the years. I am forever transformed by such a powerful, holy, and sacred experience. To be with another human who embodies Love in such an authentic way as Sera does is life changing.” – Kathleen McIntyre
“I recently attend a Soul Saturation with Sera Beak and the English language does not contain strong enough words to convey the awesomeness and the bigness of the experience I had that day and continue to have. But I will try. I went into the day unsure of what to expect, I only knew that my friend, Dr. Matt Lyon, said it would be really great and I know to pay attention when he says that sort of thing.
In essence, we met our souls that day. Some of us for the first time (me) and some of us it was a deepening, a further coming home. The experience for me was a lot of things and some of them opposites at the same time. It was joyful, sensuous, strong and intense. There was sadness and compassion and a sense of FINALLY!!
Other spiritual events I’ve attended often aim to help people transcend our bodies and this life. The Soul Saturation was quite the opposite. It was about finally coming home to ourselves and embodying who we are absolutely fully without any filters or walls. I didn’t think I was entirely capable but my soul helped me along with utter complete love that I have never felt before. It’s about getting all the juiciness and more out of this life. No holding back, no excuses, being fully soul and fully human.
I also want to say a few words about Sera’s presence as a teacher, guide and facilitator of this experience. She came to us fully present with her soul at the forefront and showed us all of who she was. When she was working with us soul to soul, I have rarely experienced the level of presence and focus that she brought. Her Beingness allowed all of us to Be completely there in that moment with our souls dancing and playing and being free.
Since the Soul Saturation with Sera, I have continued to deepen my own relationship with my soul and I am acutely aware of when I am trying to live from a non-soul led place. Life has become an amazingly fun guided, trusting journey that I am on with my soul. Can’t wait to find out what’s next.” – Dr. Sara O’Neill
“…the luxury of a day wholly focused on loving attentiveness to the radiance of your core.
It felt so respectful to linger in, sink in, soak up, learn to listen with more discriminating ears to your own internal calls. – I remember a mother and her two adult daughters and seeing the sweetness and strength of their soul bond…Such a beautiful experience. *Thank you Sera* “- Kimberly Higney
“I went to this Soul Saturation knowing it would be something special but I was also very nervous and maybe even afraid. I’m not a big fan of feeling vulnerable and exposed! But I had my protective veil with me, my two amazing daughters! I would be safe hiding behind being “mom”. I was right, for a minute.
The energy in the room was like nothing i’ve ever felt before. Powerful. I tried to put labels on what I was feeling but I couldn’t. I felt my veil slipping away. NOT GOOD! So I chose to hold on tighter and do what came naturally to me. To witness with an open heart and find peace in the healing going on around me.
For hours I watched and listened and felt. Watched, listened, felt. People were opening, discovering, celebrating… I felt relief for them and especially for my oldest daughter. I have watched her battle with herself for too many years. “i’m not good enough”, “if I were only…” and on and on. I saw a shift. A discovery of something within her. Beyond her body. Like an awakening. I saw this over and over during this soul saturation! It was so beautiful, kind of overwhelming, and as I said earlier I felt relief and I couldn’t really explain why. There was something else though, it was a little painful for me personally (under my veil). Maybe that was my ego wishing for that same joyful discovery of my soul that I was witnessing all around me. But then I thought, I saw my first born child really seeing herself in all of her perfect pure beauty and that was all I needed! What a gift! And talk about relief!
Throughout this day I had these little inklings of peace, calm, and knowing without really knowing why. At one point Sera gave us the opportunity to share what we were experiencing and then guided us in listening… really listening to what our lady was telling us. This was towards the end of the day and for me, it was the beginning. What I FELT was sadness that I hadn’t had this blissful discovery of my soul. What I HEARD, and continue to hear is this… She had never left. I actually heard her laugh, (seriously, I really did!) like a playful little girl. Innocent and full of love and joy. “I’ve been waiting right here silly…”
I thought that watching my beautiful daughters have this experience was gift enough. Little did I know the gift that was waiting for me. I said hello to my soul. My lovely, bright, playful, beautiful soul and she said “I missed you, come play…” so I continue every day to do the work (and it is work!). To pay attention, listen, feel and love. (oh, and not hide under my veil!)
Sera Beak… You are a gift to every one of us. Thank you for being so brave and sharing your beautiful red heart and soul. We are blessed.” – Lisa
“I feel more connected to my soul through Soul Saturation. The process went deeper than I had imagined. Sara made it clear from the beginning we needed to connect to our heart and not our head. Dropping down into my heart focused my emotions into what I was really feeling. I focused on my true self – my heart self – not what my head tells me is my “true” self. Processing after the weekend took much longer. I needed to be alone with my soul. The Lady really worked me over. I needed to look deep inside my heart to process the concepts Sara brought to my attention about myself. My soul relationship is stronger. I am more in my body than ever before. Normally I don’t remember dreams. Now when I wake up I remember more. Some are strange. Some are fun. Some are messages from my soul nudging me to focus on a certain aspect of my life. My Soul Saturation experience was enlightening. I feel more connected today with my soul than ever before. I am grateful to Sara for going soul to soul with me.” – Gaynelle Ihms
“Sera’s Soul Saturation Retreat was filled with incomparable healing and grace for me. At the retreat, I began writing the first chapter of my own love story with my soul. I never really fully felt the concept that my soul is my ultimate lover until my work with Sera. With Sera’s workshop I felt like I started to fall in love with my soul. It felt and still feels crazy, vulnerable, messy, confusing, scary, but also completely wonderful all at the same time.
Sera helped illuminate times where I have shut down parts of myself. Those are the parts of me that if I’m being honest I really would do almost anything not to have to face. Through Sera’s work she helped me to start to embrace all parts of myself …including the tough stuff. This soul road that Sera helped guide us on is not an easy journey but it is a journey that for me has been completely life altering. She has helped me come home to my own soul, the one who’s been waiting for me all this time. I am filled with such gratitude for her bravery, presence, and amazing leadership.” – Carly K
“Sera’s explanation of the difference between soul and spirit was the best I have come across, particularly how she expanded on the space between the two, which gave me a better understanding of the word nous. Physically, I went to a yin yoga class right after the Soul Saturation weekend – and after a 6-hour flight – and came up from the mat realizing it was the most embodied I had ever felt, specifically because Sera had directed me to a better sense of soul. Sera’s clarity and inspired compelling voice in her book, Red Hot and Holy helped me identify what had been shut off or atrophied inside for so long. Her Soul Saturation workshop was a wonderful complement to her extraordinary book, one that helps ground the experience with practice.” – Don Hudson
“I did a Soul Saturation with Sera Beak a few months ago and it was life changing. My soul is still singing loudly with joy. Sera’s bold honoring of her own Red Lady, her grace, her gentleness and her fierceness created a profoundly healing and transformative space for my own unique gifts to fully emerge. I am so grateful for Sera and her heartfelt work.” – Wendy Swanson
“Sera Beak is a game changer on the planet right now. Amidst a time in the world of mass exploration, one may even call it obsessiveness and/or addiction, of Spirit & Oneness, Sera reminds us to also wake up to our Soul & Uniqueness. She is what I call ‘the real deal’- raw, grounded, sincere, funny, steady, fierce and sweet all at once. Her love and yearning for connection with Soul is palpable in her presence. She is a profoundly selfless giver of what she Knows from her very intimate journey with her Soul, and is the biggest cheerleader for others to dive in just as deep, or even deeper, with theirs. Her yearning for others to do this is rich and thick, as she knows it is also imminent. She walks her Truth, she shares her Truth, she breathes her Truth and we are blessed she is alive and sharing her gifts with us in the way She does. She is an incredible space holder and with great love and patient, yet precise, encouragement, she will walk you into your Soul, if you are willing. Say yes to Sera Beak and say yes to being saturated with your soul and launched into the greatest love affair of your life!” -Brooks Holland Haislip
“Sera Beak is the brightest light in the next generation of red hot spiritual activists. She breaks rules and smashes stigmas in order to wake up and ignite the deepest part of our Divine selves. Do not miss her empowering workshops, they will inspire you to live like you really mean it! – Kris Carr, filmmaker, author Crazy Sexy Cancer
“After a week of ease following Sera’s workshop, I hit some serious blocks on all fronts…life seemed to trudge along. I realize now that my typical response to weekends like Sera’s workshop, is to run at lightening speed to “achieve” the self development/growth that I saw possible. Well, my soul had other plans, real face your self, face her kind of plans. Today, about a month from the workshop, she is calling me to dance. Actually, her words were, “time to dance in the fire…as the FIRE.” I am working with her these days, unfolding in my time, her time, and not rushing for some finish line. Sera, I know from thanking you at the end of class that you shy away from being seen as a teacher, but you are. The world needs you. I needed you, and your Red Lady, to come into my life, and point me home. Thank you from the depth of my red heart and soul.” – Jenny C.
“If you dig Sera Beak on Youtube or love The Red Book, than I cannot even begin to tell you how a weekend workshop will rock your world! Sera truly embodies the Divine Feminine. She will passionately and playfully encourage, entice and guide you to connect with your divine spark and hear your true self. After my workshop, a close friend saw a picture of me from the weekend, and said ‘Wow! You are Glowing’… and she was spot on. My divine spark had been ignited from the inside out…and I plan for the flame to burn eternally! Thanks Sera!” – Ana McCauley
“If you are ready to tap your Soul, break all the rules, shake your Ass and discover Your own power to BE YOU fully embodied…then Sera Beak’s work is for you. She will not pander to your ego or coddle and cajole you. Get REAL all the way to the depths of your Being! Fall madly in love with your Soul… it’s TIME!” – Mayana
“I had the most amazing, enlivening, and igniting time at the workshop. I broke through walls and gained healing I didn’t even know that I needed. The genuine connections I made with the women there I will never forget, and my heart and Soul will never be the same. It was a weekend that revived a love and passion for life I’ve been aching for.” – Jenny Sharpe
“I attended Sera’s workshop almost two years ago now, and I still use some of the techniques and ideas i learned there on a regular basis. Sera’s realness, lightness and humorous approach to deep transformation work is engaging and disarming, and her wisdom shines so bright that the whole group was shining with her by the end. I have partaken in many women’s transformation workshops and processes and I was greatly impressed with the shift I saw in the women in this group in just a few short days. So ladies, get on your horses and check this spiritual cowgirl out!” – Brooking Gatewood, PhD student.
“The workshop was like a loving little kick in the ass, care of the universe. Sera is this booty-shaking, platform-boots-wearing, dynamic little explosion of energy. Her playfulness cuts right through all the bullshit and finds you right at the core of your own ecstatic energy. She has made plain the key to being an ecstatic activist is by being wholeheartedly who you are in this world. I know, I know. You say, “But I don’t know who I’m supposed to be or what I’m supposed to do in this world.” I‘ve spent my whole life trying to figure it out, too. And in one day, one tiny divine vixen so simply and easily asked the right questions, and there I was. The one I’d been all along, the passionate priestess of my own soul, with permission to be erotic, raw, chest bared and hips swaying. I went into the workshop stuck and came out dancing, and donning my new Red cape. A spiritual heroine is born….. ho!!!!” – Melissa
“Sera does an amazing job of creating a supportive, open and daring community in her workshop. Her workshop is an exploration into all things Feminine with your fellow soul-sisters and the exercises are provocative. During the workshop I attended she encouraged each of us to name our Selves, that juicy and divine part of each of us. This allowed for the full birth of my Self in the months that followed the workshop which means that the negative voice that had been in my head since puberty had no room to dwell anymore. Now the universe routinely nudges and tickles me and I’m fully aware of it. I recommend her workshops to everyone who feels a yearning for a more intimate and magical relationship with the universe.” – Jenn Bender
“Sera Beak presented a terrific workshop at the Sacred Circles conference last winter, which I attended and loved. I found her style, approach and spiritual insights completely refreshing and innovative, not to mention great fun! She has much to offer all of us, but she has an especially strong connection to young women. This fall, I am teaching a course on Women and Spirituality in the Gender and Women’s Studies Department at the University of Kentucky and I am using The Red Book as one of the texts. I have longed for something like it since I started teaching these courses several years ago, and this one fills the bill perfectly! Read the book, catch one of her workshops, and buckle up for a great ride!” – C. P.; Lexington, KY
“I am a way-outside-the box person who found herself boxed in by recent life changes. I came to the workshop looking for an experience to help me break out of the box. The sense of joyful outrageousness in the workshop was just what I needed. I tried using body glitter at the workshop, and while the physical glitter is not something I continue to use, the experience made me realize I wanted to make my spirit sparkle. Now, when I make choices, I choose what adds sparkle to my life. I think what is so important about the workshop is that there are so many metaphors-like the body glitter-just lying about, that everyone will find something that will fan the flame of their divine spark. Thanks so much for leading the REDvolution!” – Gia Johnson
“An experience of depth, breadth, light, and love in which we gathered to remember ourselves in the circle of the divine feminine. What a relief! What a gift! Life cannot remain the same now.” – Katherine Smith
“In sacred circle around Ms. Beak and her Rouge Rogues of Female Diversity, I gained more crystalized focus into the radiancy of merging souls with the sacred feminine DIVINE MOTHER OF US ALL.” Caroline Muir, Founder, The Divine Feminine Institute www.divine-feminine.com
“For me, attending Sera’s workshop was like sipping on an extra bubbly glass of champagne… delicious, exciting and a liberating celebration. Nothing about Sera, or her insights, felt gimmicky or tired. Instead, I left her workshop feeling passionate….with an electric desire to be me, unabashedly.” – Allison Rapson; iVillage
“Sera Beak is Redlicious! Her heartfelt and fun loving messages spark love and aliveness. Attending her seminar on Valentine’s Day was the greatest gift to myself! Her invitation to define your own “divine spark” is warm, welcoming, and waaaaaay worthwhile!” -Diane Cohen, Life Coach and Writer
“Girlfriend, go see this woman! She’s gonna trip up every idea you’ve got about the divine, help you go deeper, and if that weren’t enough, she makes dancing sexy and holy at the same time.” – Cristina Brandt, Lifecoach
“For any women out there looking for a deeper relationship with themselves and their ‘divine spark’, I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend doing Sera Beak’s teleclass. I LOVE her approach – intuitive, personalized, playful, feminine spirituality that cuts the crap out of “spiritual” practice and helps you find your own authentic flavor of sacredness in your life.” – Brooking Gatewood
“This teleclass is a FANTASTIC way to connect with the only voice that matters…YOURS! Sera Beak is a woman of fire and integrity! Don’t miss it!” – Kate Wester
“There were about 1,000 times during the teleclass that I thought, god darn it I frickin’ LOVE that WOMAN!!!!!!! She IS the embodiment of gorgeous awesome feminine powerful energy –thank you God for her!!!! By being fully embodied and letting it go-you give us permission to do it, too!! Thank you a trillion times, for letting it go and being so REAL!” – D.
“I want to thank you again so much for all the ways your beautiful Self has penetrated my life and helped walk me THROUGH such a crazy (but so good) time for me during the past 5 weeks….and back TO my Self. I’ve needed this sweet, crazy, brave, intuitive and (mostly) fearless woman….this devine beauty that is Me for soooooo frickin’ long…and although we’ve met on several occasions, my tendency is to abandon her while I seek answers outwardly. No more, girlfriend! I can’t begin to explain the impact your insights have and will continue to have on my life.” – B. W.
“Having read “The Red Book” once before … whole-heartedly loving it, periodically and randomly checking back in with it; I wasn’t sure what more I could learn from re-reading it, front to back, and taking this class, but something sparked me to sign up anyway (something I’ve never done before!) and I am so glad and grateful that I did! There is a REAL positive vibe you feel in connecting w/Sera this way, as well as knowing you are also mysteriously connecting with other like-hearted souls … and … you do learn (see/feel/realize) more!! Thank you for all your inspiration and clearing of the “fog” so I could better see; how I really feel, who I really am and be brave enough to believe what I believe.” – Samantha
“I really just want to tell you how wonderful the Red Book Teleclass was. It remains to be a spiritual experience in a class completely of its own. Focusing on what’s divine in *me* has never been easy, so journeying to the Red Path has been a struggle and oftentimes it still is. But the fact that when I pay attention I hear whispers of divinity singing to me makes me want to keep going deeper (like the time I was having a conversation with someone about if there’s life after death and whose divine door you eventually end up knocking on, and afterwards I went outside and a single red firework went off above my house). Like I said, it’s hard and 70% of the time I’m sure I’m doing it wrong, but I am truly blessed to have your books, your words, and your classes guiding me to a relationship with the divine that sings from within me instead of lecturing /at/ me.” – Cassandra
“I happened upon The Red Book teleclass somewhat by chance and it turned out to be exactly what I needed. It offered a chance to reconnect with an aspect of my inner self that had become muted by the busy swirl of my life as a working mother of two young children. It is an experience to be savored. During the 6 weeks of the class I felt genuinely refreshed by the chance to just be in the presence of my own self. The weekly meeting seemed to help orient me to myself in a way that I haven’t been able to feel since I was a free floating young woman. It felt so good to be present to myself and it has me thinking about the way that I approach so much of what I do ~ for my family, my patients, people in my community and myself.” – Abby
“I just took your tele-class for the second time and loved it, as I knew I would. Connecting to the Divine through meditation and just being aware has been life changing for me. Although intellectually I knew I had the answers I needed within, I hadn’t experienced this until connecting with the Divine through your class. Knowing that I can do this has been revolutionary for me. It’s made me at peace with who I am and what I’m doing and where I’m going.” – Michelle
TALKS AND INTERVIEWS
A woman who is hands down the freshest, boldest breath of fresh air spirituality has heard, read or seen in decades” – Maureen Moss, author, motivational speaker, and radio host.
“One of the magical qualities of Sera is the face of an innocent teen and the wisdom of centuries of elders! You gaze upon beauty and a depth of consciousness not often found regardless of age. Sera speaks with such presence, directness and authenticity taking her audience by surprise and penetrating them with the depth of her Being. She inspires me! “– Marilyn Nyborg ` age 73
“Seeing Sera on stage and listening to her speak, you could hear a pin drop in the audience… her being carried a stunning presence that captured the attention of everyone in the audience. Soft spoken with profound eloquence, sometimes humor and always with a depth that propels the listener even deeper, Sera is like a dynamic painting radiating expansive opportunity right into your heart and soul.” – Georgia Dow, Integrative Healing Arts since 1970.
“Sera Beak is a modern day mystic who is both wise and wildly delightful. She speaks in the down to earth, uncensored language of youth and vitality. She is in-tune with the divine and will invite your listeners to join her. I highly recommend her as a guest. I’m sure you’ll be as delighted as we were.” – Justine Toms, NPR, New Dimensions
“Sera is one of a rare breed of humans who dares to speak directly and lovingly from the heart. She touches people with the depth of her wisdom and single focused approach to an authentic life.“ – Suzie Daggett, Producer, Insight Lectures www.insightlecture.com
“I met Sera for the first time at the annual Gather the Women event that just took place in Grass Valley, Ca March 9, 2012. The founder, Marilyn Nyborg, had left a phone message a few weeks earlier when Sera was visiting telling me I had to meet her! I was not able to meet Sera until she came for the event, however, and I must say the very first instant of meeting her I knew why Marilyn had called me. Here was this beautiful feminine being so full of light, love and humility. As she got up to speak her first words set the tone for her speech. She said “I am mighty of pen but shake for the first 5 minutes when I get up to speak.” Pure authenticity and honesty pouring forth from her! How many people try to hide those feelings and pretend to have it “all together” but then how else could you speak of truth, authenticity and the Feminine Soul? Sera is an example of huge things coming from small beautiful packages. She is a woman willing to be cut to the core by the sword of truth so all she embodies, lives and speaks about comes form her feminine wisdom, feminine soul, feminine truth. I would buy her latest book she is writing “Red Hot Holy Love” simply for the title… WOW! I can not even begin to imagine what is in store and I can’t wait to find out! Thank you Sera!!” – Kathleen McIntire
“When it comes to spirituality, mysticism, big questions & connections to the universe, Sera is your girl. But what is she like in real life? Well, she is very human — very real. She has long, straight glossy hair with an immaculately straight fringe. She wears a pendant of two angel wings around her neck. Before she started her Redvolution talk, she told us that she was terribly nervous. She has short red fingernails & wears a red ring on the first finger of her left hand. She swears & laughs & sits cross-legged when she speaks.
For all her trepidation about speaking, her talk was fantastic. I wasn’t sure what to expect — would she be talking about meditation, her life, Burning Man, religion? Interestingly, it turned out to be a huge mix of topics, with a focus on defining & finding your own spiritual truth. She talked about the rebels & outliers of religion, how they lived with passion & truth & purpose. It was exciting. Inspiring!
As I started to think about what Sera was saying, questions arose in my mind. Was I really working on myself & getting to know who I was, or was I just keeping myself busy & distracted? Was x really true, or was it just something I had accepted as a belief without thinking much more about it? Was I really as “in step” with the Universe as I thought I was? How often did I ignore my own intuition?
It’s very rare that I would buy a book at a talk. Usually I feel like I pretty much know the gist of whatever it is they’re pushing, & so I listen to the talk, go home, do some research, think about it, & do a bit more research. I also don’t make a lot of time to read books these days — most books I buy end up unread on a shelf. So you must realize what an impact Sera made to entice me to buy a copy of her book! I walked home & sat cross-legged on my bed, devouring the book as I did my dinner. I got about half-way through before looking at the clock & realizing it was more than time to go to bed. It was a timely message for me.” – GALA Darling; www.galadarling.com
“Sera Beak is an enlightening, enlivening guest. She’s perfect for radio in that she has infectious energy that comes through her voice, and she offers tangible, easy-to-picture and easy-to-implement suggestions that listeners can relate to and use. Sera can be back on my show any time.” — Victoria Moran, HealthyLife.net, formerly with Martha Stewart Living Radio, Sirius Broadcasting
“As a member of the Sophia Institute in Charleston, SC, I have the interest and privilege of attending many lectures and weekend retreats on philosophy and spirituality. As a mother of 5 and grandmother of 6 plus one on the way, I have also been looking for some way to get my young ones more involved…………You exceed all expectations. I had the privilege of attending your lecture last year, reading your book, and then buying several more to pass out to friends, all of whom have loved it and are eagerly awaiting to attend your future lectures” – Brenda Rosenthal
“Featuring Sera Beak on The New Man was a no-brainer. First, she sets the bar in terms of what an amazing woman can be and do in this lifetime. She actually LIVES a new possibility for both women AND men in this day and age. Number two, she challenges people to THINK for themselves and JUST BE themselves. She does this in an entertaining and accessible manner — never authoritarian. And third, I got emails for weeks from listeners who ‘woke up’ to a new possibility just by hearing her speak. Bottom line, this girl delivers value in a fun, entertaining way. What more could you ask?” – Tripp Lanier, Host, The New Man
A Spiritual Cowgirl Speaks – by Lipstick Mystic
“How many times have you cruised by those books on traditional religions at the bookstore thinking, “Maybe this path will have the answers that I need?”
You buy the book, you study up on that religion, or you buy videos or CD’s featuring that teacher’s work. You diligently listen, absorb, and attempt to wrap your mind around the teachings.
How many times have you done this, only to realize – if you’re being honest with yourself – that none of it really works for you?
So many religions and spiritual traditions have great grains of wisdom within them, yet they seem locked in the past. They aren’t keeping up with real people, real humans, having real emotions, feelings, and – GASP! – even sexual desires.
Most religions are busy telling you how TRULY LIVING, with all of your senses fully engaged, is “bad” for you. Or many of the New Age pathways seem to be always going on and on about “ascension,” preaching escape from this realm, in one form or another. The ET’s are coming to whisk us off in their spaceships. We’re going to ascend on our own via our merkaba field or light body. Or we’re going to, um, just wake up one day in a new, utopian reality.
Well, all of that can sound really nice on the surface. And most of these teachers are truly loving types who are doing their very best mapping out the landscape of the Divine and attempting to share their best theories or insights with their students.
But sometimes, no matter how enticing or beautiful a spiritual path is, it just seems like your grandmother’s spirituality – crusty, uncomfortable, and heavy. Not yours.
Modern women and men need to get in touch with the sacred spark that lives within them without sacrificing fun, humor, or sex.
At least, that’s part of the message that author Sera Beak is trying to get across.
She preaches (if that’s the right word) an exciting, freeform type of spiritual adventure, encouraging us all to become spiritual “cowgirls” and to incorporate many different forms of play and invention as we create our own spiritual practice.”
