    Adyashanti asks us to let go of our struggles with life and open to the full promise of spiritual awakening: the end of delusion and the discovery and expression of our essential being. After 15 years as a spiritual teacher, Adyashanti has found that the simpler the teaching, the greater its power to initiate this awakening. On Falling into Grace, he shares what he considers fundamental insights to "open ourselves to that mysterious element that enters in the hidden and quiet moments and sparks a revolution in the way that we perceive life."

    Since Darwin's day, we've been told that sexual monogamy comes naturally to our species. Mainstream science - as well as religious and cultural institutions - has maintained that men and women evolved in families in which a man's possessions and protection were exchanged for a woman's fertility and fidelity. But this narrative is collapsing....

    What did you like best about Sex at Dawn? What did you like least?

    i liked the new ideas proposed, at least they were new to me. why do women broadcast orgasms? interesting ideas about polyandry


    Would you be willing to try another book from Christopher Ryan and Cacilda Jetha ? Why or why not?

    no, because they ignore good science by others, and use cheap shots to discredit credible anthropologists findings
