Opening Love is a lucid manifesto for those who realize that love is a bigger story than the one we’ve been told. Dr. Anya weaves a potent blend of prose to show how the liberation of love is not only key to our personal fulfillment, but the key to our evolution as a species.
~ Ian MacKenzie, Writer/Producer/Director: Love: Sex, Partnership and the Village
This beautiful book is both lucid and accessible and will open doors that, whether or not the reader chooses to pass through them, will enhance their quality of being simply by being aware of them. I recommend this book as an exploration of what it means to be human.
~ Roshi Ingen Breen, Soto Zen Buddhist Association
Dr. Anya skillfully draws on the wisdom of previous generations of spiritual outlaws and polyamorous pioneers, as well as her own expansive personal experience, to offer clarity on the sometimes puzzling concept of relationship as a spiritual path to a new generation of seekers.
~ Dr. Deborah Taj Anapol, author of The Seven Natural Laws of Love and Polyamory in the 21st Century
A poignant account of living the polyamorous life in a heterosexist, monogamy-privileging culture.
~ Dr. Kristine Blair, Professor of English, gender and feminist studies researcher
Dr. Anya invites us to open our hearts to the possibility of being authentically, richly, and profoundly the beautiful Being that we each uniquely are! I invite you to read this book with an open heart and see what emerges for you!
~ Leslie Blackburn, Sacred Sexual Healer & Transformational Guide, international speaker, radio show host
Until comparatively recently I had been telling myself I should write a book on how we could be living in what is called A Relationship. Now I don’t have to—Anya has written an excellent book on the subject. I am very grateful to her. I suggest you get the book, and absorb and live what Anya is sharing through it.
~ Paul Lowe, spiritual teacher & author of In Each Moment: A New Way to Live, http://www.paullowe.org
This is a vital addition to the literature on relationships, filling the current gap that exists around relationships as a form of spiritual practice and a means of personal growth.
~ Dr. Meg Barker, author of Rewriting the Rules: An Integrative Guide to Love, Sex and Relationships
Opening Love is a brave and thought-provoking book that offers healing to those who have been wounded in the battle of the sexes.
~ Marsha Scarbrough, author of Medicine Dance
Dr. Anya’s work defuses conflict and competition to create harmony and peace. Opening Love comes at the right moment.
~ Serena Anderlini-D’Onofrio, PhD., author of Gaia and the New Politics of Love: Notes for a Poly Planet
It matters not if you are monogamous or polyamorous, an atheist or a Christian: in all likelihood, you’ll find something useful in these pages.
~ Daniel Cardoso, Assistant Professor of Communication Sciences and expert in polyamory studies
Opening Love is a wonderfully-written book on polyamory, love, self reflection, and loving transitions. The book is not dogmatic in the least, but rather encouraging and loving in its purpose, regardless of where you are on your spiritual journey or even if you identify as non-spiritual.
~ PolyAnna, editor of LookingThrough.us
