“We are honored to write a recommendation for Marja West’s book, F’d Wide Open.  Her description of the struggle of women and men to heal from their exposure to violence and unconsciousness and how profoundly this unconsciousness has affected their sexuality is profound. 

Also, her discussion of the transformation of unconscious man to “Conscious Man Arising” and of unconscious women to empowered women parallels our own process of rising out of the depths of collective male domination driven insensitivity.  Her sharing of her own personal process as well as those of others both men and women who are healing from unconsciousness makes the book readable and heartfelt. In this journey of recovery, she also describes the divine purpose of pain, suffering, heartbreak, and gives us clear tools for creating love that is alive, and nourishing including guidelines for sacred sexuality.

She ends with an inspiring message for what she calls, ‘The Heart-Based New Humanity.’  This book can be immensely helpful for anyone, particularly couples, who seek to find a new and conscious way of living alone and together.  Bravo!”

“This book is sure to inspire a genuine awakening that draws us closer into our own Divine Essence—rather than the programming of the old Patriarchal system and the New Age deceptions.

“In her new book, Marja West reminds us that there's nowhere to get to, that every moment is an expression of The Divine within and without."
