Sharing one’s truth with the world is rarely easy, especially when one’s truth contradicts history and a major world religion. But truth, much like love, can’t stay hidden forever.
In her provocative new memoir, REDVELATIONS: A Soul’s Journey to Becoming Human, Harvard-trained scholar Sera Beak bravely and vulnerably shares her unorthodox experience of remembering and reclaiming the forgotten daughter of Jesus and Mary Magdalene as the lost part of her own soul.
In breathtaking verse, the first half of the book tells the remarkable and heartbreaking story of Jesus and Mary Magdalene from the perspective of their daughter, Sarah, and reveals their revolutionary teachings on marriage, sexuality, spirituality, and True Love.
In the second half of the book, Sera uses psychological reflexivity and penetrating insight to explore and expand upon the themes of part one: love and loss, betrayal and forgiveness, suffering and healing, death and resurrection, and what it means to be truly human. Then Sera gives us a front row seat as she does the gritty, yet gratifying, soul work of retrieving and reclaiming Sarah and offers invaluable advice, warnings, and helpful suggestions for our own soul work. The result is a profoundly original example of the indomitable strength of the human soul and the unbeatable power of True Love.
REDVELATIONS is a clarion call for all of us to do whatever it takes to embody our soul and become fully human, not just for our own health and well-being, but for the well-being of this planet. Through Sera’s empowering and revelatory story, readers will be inspired to seek out their own soul, trust their unique journey, cherish the entire human experience, and dare to share their own truth with the world-no matter what others may think.
“What you’re about to read in this book will change everything.
Everything you’ve been told to be truth. It will change your life, your perspective,
the way you view your entire experience on earth ... because it’s time.”
-Lisa Lister, author of Code Red and Love Your Lady Landscape
“Prepare to be astonished. This is world-healing wisdom disguised as a rollicking
good story, delivered with intelligence. lyricism. and irreverent reverence.”
-Mirabai Starr, author of Caravan of No Despair
