Michael Henry Dunn’s spiritual journey began with heartbreak and a call to monastic life. But a deep conviction that one can be in love with the Divine - passionately, romantically in love - and still find sweet and fulfilling human love as well, led him to seek and find intimacy with the ultimate Soul Mate.
Romancing the Divine is Dunn’s deeply moving, intensely personal account of a love affair with the Source of Life: the Goddess who is also God. With honesty and humor, Dunn reveals the personal crisis that led to his spiritual awakening, his experiences meditating and chanting in the company of saints and illuminated souls, and the paths and techniques you can use to share in his love.
What Dunn experienced (and continues to experience) transcends any one religion. He found commonality in his divine love with Indian yogis and Western nuns and discovered inspiration from Christian monastics and the chants of the kirtan yogic tradition. His is an unabashedly romantic love story centered on the Divine Feminine and filled with joy, passion, and a spiritualized and purified erotic energy.
To love the Divine is to discover a lover who, according to Dunn, is “seductive beyond thought of competition.” It’s a love we all deserve.
