In this higher consciousness love story, author Jeff Brown shares the poignant journey of Lowen and Sarah, two soulmates who have found their way to one another yet again. This intimate and revealing account is told through Lowen's eyes, as he experiences the heights and depths that come with meeting his beloved. In this remarkably engaging story, we walk beside the lovers as they touch the divine and then struggle to ground their love in daily life. From the heights of sacred sexuality to the depths of human foible, they ultimately have to choose: surrender to this love or shrink back to mediocrity, work through their emotional baggage or flee the connection, open to the next portal of possibility or postpone it until the next lifetime. Shaped and reshaped in loves cosmic kiln, Sarah and Lowen become a symbol of our own longing for wholeness in the presence of another.
This book is a rare and unique gem, one of the first of its kind. Rivetingly real and magically poetic, it sheds new light on the evolving relational paradigm of "uncommon bonds," "soulmates" and Jeff Brown's unique term "wholemates." In a world that yearns for deep soul connection, An Uncommon Bond provides a blueprint of conscious relationship for us all-reminding us of the luminous nature of great love, and showing us the opportunities for expansion that live at its heart.
"Jeff Brown has done it again... Within your hands is another magical masterpiece. If you are ready for a whirlwind of radical honesty, bare-bone intimacy and the raw dissecting that MUST go into Sacred Relationship then read on. A jewel of the highest order." ~ANAIYA SOPHIA, Author of Sacred Sexual Union & co-author of Womb Wisdom
"In An Uncommon Bond, we are shown love as a relentless force within the universe, acting on the lives of the two main characters to crack open their hearts that their souls might come home to each other and we recognize their story as our own. Written with passion, honesty and wisdom, this is an uncommon book." ~PHILIP SHEPHERD, Author of New Self, New World: Recovering Our Senses in the Twenty-first Century
"An Uncommon Bond is both evocative and riveting, wrapping its way around the heart and soul of anyone who s ever been involved or interested in a deeper type of love that extends beyond the realm of common sense and connection. Jeff Brown brilliantly explores the rapture, the darkness, the confusion, and the elevation that pulses inside the painfully exquisite merging of two people who were unprepared for such a transformational and transcendent relational experience. Stunningly eye opening, shape shifting and profound, I will never again look at the beautiful possibilities of love the same as before." ~VICTORIA ERICKSON, Author of Edge of Wonder
"Jeff Brown elegantly weaves an evolutionary romance in An Uncommon Bond. Whereas most love stories end with "happily ever after," Jeff takes us beyond the fairy tale and into the grounded spirituality necessary to truly meet the Beloved, both within ourselves and in our relationships. He is a master wordsmith, engaging and enlightening us with his whimsical wordplay as we watch the journey unfold between Lowen and Sarah, the story's "Scar-Crossed Lovers." Armed with his witty-wise lexicon and his deep understanding of human nature, Jeff presents a new paradigm of relating that is essential to the healing and growth of our society." ~CANDICE HOLDORF, Actress and Author of From 6 to 9 and Beyond: Widening the Lens of Feminine Eroticism
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
An Uncommon Bond is superb . . . a treasure trove of truth shimmering with jewels and a fictional chronicle of the glorious and treacherous terrain of love. With grit and guts, humor and heart, tenderness and impeccability, Jeff Brown bares both the male and female interior wilderness in this love story, and he offers a heartgate through which to navigate two dramatically different kinds of consciousness. We all struggle to understand one another, communicate deeply, and, if we are very lucky, find real love in a real world. Each of us wants to hold our heads high, heal our wounds, and leave the battlefield of life for kinder, gentler shores. An Uncommon Bond helps us to recognize when we must wield our swords and do battle and when we must put them down and make love. Like a pioneer of purity, Jeff carves out the beauty of love like Michelangelo and hacks through the obstructions to love like Daniel Boone. The world needs Jeff Brown’s words, his works, and his inimitable...
I eagerly awaited the arrival of An Uncommon Bond both because I have great admiration for Jeff Brown's courageous voyage into dissolving the walls between spirituality and emotional healing and because I have always been a miner for great love and a believer that love is a gift that comes from the higher realms. To read his telling of the hero's journey through an experience of profound love that shakes the very foundations of his beingness is to grow more capable of the honesty, courage, humility, unconditionality, and presence needed to even begin to sustain a great love. He writes this story to move us all forward in our vision and capacity for experiencing God/All That is (whatever words that work for you) through the juicy, embodied experience of lovingly bringing ourselves ready to each other, healing into wholeness, vulnerable, present, creative and vibrantly alive.
If you are on a path of the heart, an embodied path of spiritual illumination and emotional healing...
I was expecting better after seeing the poignant posts on this books Facebook page and was pretty disappointed.. Jeff obviously has great understanding of different types of relationships, being he is in the psychology speciality of work and I am in agreement with him about all the different types of relationship we are capable of having and how complicated they are .. many people do try to simplify this area of life but it is much more than meeting the love of your life and getting married.
For me the emotion was not fully conveyed with empathy and I could not feel what I was reading. Maybe the characters were not strong enough or maybe Jeff either has not fully experienced love in the way he writes of, or cannot effectively express it in writing.. I am not sure where the fault lies. There are too many unexplained disappearances of the characters, non explanation of changeable moods - the reader needs to know why these are happening to feel the emotion. Needs a plot...
