Initiations In Love
What do we do with our pain?
Initiations in Love is a spiritual memoir that helps you gracefully turn towards what breaks our hearts and assists you in turning your suffering into your gifts.
It’s an age-old question all sincere spiritual seekers must eventually wrestle with because no one escapes suffering in this life. How do we make sense of our personal and collective trauma, which leaves many of us feeling disconnected from ourselves, others, and God? How do we reconnect to our intrinsic wholeness?
Initiations in Love assists readers in finding meaning in the human journey, which at times leaves us feeling so very separate. It helps answer these fundamental questions by proposing that everything that happens to us—the good and the bad—can initiate us into the genuine nature of Love (with a capital L). In fact, it suggests life is a living school, full of rites of passage that teach us lessons in Love.
Initiations in Love is a modern spiritual memoir with a teaching and self-help component and offers readers meaningful ways to process and transform their suffering and trauma. Through the telling of her unusual journey—from an atheist upbringing, deep engagement in New Age practices, time spent in Indian ashrams and U.S. Christian monasteries, to eventual mystical Catholicism—Britta shares how she moved through life’s five initiation stages: The Awakening, The Call, The Transformation Cauldron, The Emerging, and The Gift. Through these stages, Britta transforms her suffering into her gifts.
Initiations in Love is a call to a deeper Love and an invitation to open to Grace wherever it can be found, whether in traditional or non-traditional approaches. Her book shows readers the value of being willing participants in this sacred endeavor instead of resisting life’s lessons and letting their wounds make them resentful and guarded.
Initiations in Love is a compelling window into a soul’s journey to God, as well as a mirror that will help readers better see their own journey. Britta has masterfully transformed her life’s struggles into lessons of Love, both as an act of self-healing and as a precious offering to us all. I was moved and inspired by the stories and guidance in this book, and wholeheartedly recommend it to seekers on the Path.
