Fortunately, we will not be asked to take this journey alone, for we will be accompanied by the god of love and desire, Eros, with his enthusiasm for life, appreciation of beauty, and his delicious pinch of naughtiness. And, as we become more acquainted with our new companion, we will learn of his masculine qualities; qualities necessary if we are to heal ourselves and our planet.
Utilizing the evolving images of photographer Gary Laird, with their embodiment of the masculine, an energy always relevant to both men and woman, you will be asked to take your own journey, for this is not a passive read. You will be asked to walk through your purification, to explore the labyrinth of your psyche, and to honestly look in the mirror.
