More about me
I'm Sera Beak, a Harvard-trained scholar of comparative religion and mysticism who's spent the last dozen years traveling the world exploring spirituality -- from whirling with Sufi dervishes to meeting the Dalai Lama on my 21st birthday; from taking the host from a Croatian Catholic mystic who had the stigmata (truly) to having life-altering visions with a shaman, and just about everything in between (I now happily deem myself a “Spiritual Cowgirl").

"The Red Book: A Deliciously Unorthodox Approach To Igniting Your Divine Spark" is the first book in a planned "red" trilogy. I'm co-directing a feature documentary called "Redvolution: Dare to Disturb the Universe" with the Canadian award-winning documentarian, Velcrow Ripper. I also give Redvolution lectures, workshops, and offer private "red intensives" in spiritual mentorship for women. I've also written for the Let’s Go Travel Guide series, Bootyparlor.com and Beliefnet.com.

I’m as comfortable talking about Muslim women in Iraq, the pagan history of religious traditions and the extreme need for religious tolerance in this day and age as I am about designer jeans, vibrators and the latest celebrity breakup. I was called “a woman who is hands down the freshest, boldest breath of fresh air spirituality has heard, read or seen in decades” by Maureen Moss, author, motivational speaker, and radio host of worldpuja.org. That was really nice of her.

I'm happiest being a mover. But not of furniture. I live in San Francisco, drive a purple car, cohabitate with an effusive African Grey parrot named Anaya and have an unnatural affection for human bloopers. I would love to hear from you. And You.

Love is always present, in the world, in nature, in us. What changes is our realisation of it.
Sending you a hearty smile from nature, dear Sera.
love without end, Sandavala

What an embodiment of divine humor and passion you've managed in your few years.. a raw, seductive spirituality, liberating, naked, honest - an irreverent reverence that is fresh and engaging because it bodes a spiritual self-awareness and intimacy few of us have known. I look forward to your book.

The Buddha’s Words on Lovingkindness



This is what should be done
By those who are skilled in goodness,
And who know the path of peace:
Let them be able and upright,
Straightforward and gentle in speech,
Humble and not conceited,
Contented and easily satisfied,
Unburdened with duties and frugal in their ways,
Peaceful and calm, and wise and skillful,
Not proud and demanding in nature.
Let them not do the slightest thing
That the wise would later reprove.
Wishing: in gladness and in safety,
May all beings be at ease.
Whatever living beings there may be;
Whether they are weak or strong, omitting none,
The great or the mighty, medium, short or small,
The seen and the unseen,
Those living near and far away,
Those born and to-be-born—
May all beings be at ease!
Let none deceive another,
Or despise any being in any state.
Let none through anger or ill-will
Wish harm upon another.
Even as a mother protects with her life
Her child, her only child,
So with a boundless heart
Should one cherish all living beings;
Radiating kindness over the entire world,
Spreading upward to the skies,
And downward to the depths;
Outward and unbounded,
Freed from hatred and ill-will.
Whether standing or walking, seated or lying down,
Free from drowsiness,
One should sustain this recollection.
This is said to be the sublime abiding.
By not holding to fixed views,
The pure-hearted one, having clarity of vision,
Being freed from all sense desires,
Is not born again into this world.

DEAR SERA

ENDLESS WONDER OF MY SOUL COME TRUE
WITHIN YOUR ANGELIC WONDER
I AM ENTRAPPED IMBUED
WITHIN YOUR ANGELIC DIVINE
WHERE I AM A WILLING PRISONER IN TIME
WITH YOU

I HOPE ALL YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE
AND WE BECOME THE BEST OF FRIENDS


MAY ALL YOUR DREAMS BECOME A REALITY
ALONG TIME'S UNTRACEABLE DESIGN
WITHIN YOUR IMAGE I AM FOREVER CONSIGNED
PLEASE STAY IN TOUCH
AND IF YOU WISH BECOME A FRIEND OF MINE

PEACE,
JAMES

Hi Sera, I like tha concept of spiritual cowgirl. I wrote a song called Suburbian Cowboy many years ago. Congratulations for being a featured member of iPeace. My wife CanadianPrincess and I are both featured this week too. Please visit our pages. Wendy and I live in Mill Valley we both taught in San Francisco for many years.
Peace Wayne
