Sera Beak is a Harvard-trained scholar of comparative world religions who spent years traveling the world studying spirituality – from whirling with Sufi dervishes to meeting the Dalai Lama on her 21st birthday; from taking the host from a Croatian Catholic mystic who had the stigmata to having life-altering visions with shamans (and everything in between). The New York Times has called her one of the new “role models” for my generation.
She is the author of Red Hot and Holy: A Heretic’s Love Story (July 1st, 2013) and The Red Book: A Deliciously Unorthodox Approach to Igniting Your Divine Spark (2006). Sera offers Soul Fire Sessions, retreats, talks, classes, and officiates weddings (in a red dress).
Over 4 years ago, she realized that despite her fierce devotion to the divine and her successful career in women’s spirituality, she had lost her soul. She realized she could not be of service to other women or this planet to the degree that she needed to be until she found her soul again. So, she retreated from about 95 percent of her professional and social life and went into “the red tent” – a physical and spiritual cocoon. Needless to say, a lot went down those past four years and a lot has changed, much of which she writes about in Red Hot and Holy, but most importantly, she has found her soul again. While spiritually, she will always be in the red tent, it’s now time for her to expand her physical service on the planet.
