This intimate and revealing love story is told through the eyes of Lowen as he experiences the heights and depths that come with meeting his beloved, Sarah. In this remarkably engaging story, we walk beside the lovers as they touch the divine and struggle to ground their love in daily life.
From the heights of sacred sexuality to the depths of human foible, they ultimately have to choose: surrender to this love or shrink back to mediocrity, work through their emotional baggage or flee the connection, open to the next portal of possibility or postpone it until the next lifetime. Shaped and reshaped in love's cosmic kiln, Sarah and Lowen become a symbol of our own longing for wholeness in the presence of another.
This audiobook is a rare and unique gem, one of the first of its kind. Rivetingly real and magically poetic, it sheds new light on the evolving relational paradigm of "uncommon bonds", "soulmates", and Jeff Brown's unique term, "wholemates". In a world that yearns for deep soul connection, An Uncommon Bond provides a blueprint of conscious relationship for us all - reminding us of the luminous nature of great love and showing us the opportunities for expansion that live at its heart.

I must admit it took me a little while to get into the language and style of the story as it seemed just a little too schmaltzy and almost like a parody of what us conscious/yogi/embodiment types talk about and experience. That right there was the indication that I was to receive a potent dose of medicine from this story. Resistance often is the precursor to something transformative and important coming in. When I began reading, I was involved in my own deep soul connection with a beloved that changed me forever. I put the story down for several months when our partnership ended and I, like the narrator/protagonist, went through a mm epic dark night of the soul in order to journey toward love and light within. When I picked back up, the timing was divinely aligned as I was truly able to receive the abundant wisdom Jeff Brown offers here. This is a beautiful, powerful, honest account of what relationship as the path to awakening is. Not a fairytale, though certainly a love story, An Uncommon Bond is ultimately a model for self love, self awareness and self sourcing the fulfillment of our deepest desires and needs from within so that we can be in right and rewarding relationship with our own self, and yes, if that's in the stars for us, with another. As one of the conscious/yogi/embodiment types this book is clearly meant to appeal to and resonate with, I found it highly relatable and relevant and am appreciative of just how easy it was to find myself in this story and the story in me.
Thank you so much for putting the roller coaster I have experienced into words. it is so comforting to know I am not alone in my doubts and fears.
I have to say, I am emotional writing this. This story touched me in a multitude of ways. It's hard to understand why we feel certain bonds. Why we turn away from some and can't turn away from others. It's a great read and was very emotional for me. It was cleansing and healing for me. Thank you for sharing!
It held a lot of promise. Sadly it did not deliver. I've made to halfway point. Going to try to finish it. I think the writing is thin, characters are under-developed and act erratically. Performance is also lacking.
I listened to this entire book In 3 days. I couldn't stop. I laughed, I cried, I paused and took it all in, and I cried some more. I felt as if he knew me personally and saw into my life and could feel my heart. I will listen to this over and over. There are so many life and heart truths here it's hard to put into words really. All I can say is Thank You. Just thank you.
My way in learning to relax is to read or to be read to audiblly!
I not a person to cirque a persons work but this was not for me at all. I gave 1 star for the effort.
Not unless it got rave reviews
I am returning it! I tried to hold on for a few chapters but it became painstaking.
Though, I didn't care much for some of the style of the writing, or the style of the voice reading the story, the heart of the story is very touching and resonant to me, and resembles my own experience in many ways.
If you like the novel form, you may like this. If not, and you've already done a lot of conscious relationship work, the last couple chapters will tally the main points.
I did have a hard time getting through this because of the constant New Agey play on words, which I thought would end once the main character got real and grounded.
If you haven't done a lot of grounded conscious relationship work, this book could be helpful. Jeff put a lot of work into this and the info is great--the style of the delivery just wasn't a good fit for me, though it could be perfect for others.
