Desire has a bad reputation, yet still remains a titillating subject.
Currently, most books on desire either focus on the latest research in the field of human desire or are more erotic and explicit in their orientation.
This polarized view on desire is also reflected within the greater collective of our society with the recent rise of the #MeToo movement and the outing of influential leaders. The time is ripe for the introduction of a new paradigm for desire.
In my book, I compare the impact of socially mandated desires on our living experience of fulfillment (or lack thereof) with the igniting and guiding force of our true desires. As such, I regard desire as an emerging, evolutionary force in our lives―to be both harnessed and trusted as our own unique compass.
I also share the possibility that desire is more like a symphony, appearing in our life as different types of desire songs: the Song of Eros, the Song of Rapture, the Song of Love, the Song of Procreation, the Song of Thriving, and the Song of Contribution.
