I didn't finish this because it started to be a time waster. I picked some useful info in this book but the majority of the info wasn't great. I completed 80% of the book.
I liked how there was a push to connect to darkness as a form of love. I think it would have been interesting to hear more about forgiveness and shared effort in that pursuit. I think the woman (energy) is more active.
Gets one star since I had the impression that this was the audio version of the book itself. There was no clear sign that it was not, or I missed it. Either way, I am disappointed!
I read/listen to books daily have have come across some wonderful ones. This has just moved to the top of them! Understanding the dance of Love is understanding your meaning for life
Since there is no real story im going to say something about its content here.
For me Deida strengthened and reasured many of my principle in life and helped me understand them even better while also giving me lots of different ways to approach and think of situation and problems you daily encounter with your partner.
What i did not like is that there is no real answer on how to find your deepest gift. Maybe it is because there is no real way to explain this and you have to find it out by yourself.
The breathing exercices at the end of the book are kind of anoying but they might help if you do them very intensely. If you just want to hear what Deida has to say you can just skip them.
Overall this book really helped me shape my way of thinking as myself as a male.
Great book and flawlessly good for the individual pursing greater insight in mastering personal masculinity and his relationships with feminine energy. Not a book for the spiritless.
Total nonsensical garbage. I want my money back. I don't know how anyone can recommend this book, save bragging rights of having read this. I bought this on the recommendation of some , now I understand, pseudo-alpha males.
