2021 INTERNATIONAL BOOK AWARDS WINNER in Self-Help/Relationships
"If you find yourself replaying the same old tapes in your romantic relationships and ever wondered what it would look like to merge spirituality with love, then look no further than Wake Up in Love. Going as far as words can take her, Penelope reveals the secrets of Tantra (beyond sex) and the powerful practice of Self-Inquiry-the most potent form of meditation that exists. Read slowly and with reflection, this book can guide you to transcend toxic relationship patterns and the common tendency of projecting fear, doubts, and insecurities onto partners. Most importantly, it can guide you back to the Self within. It is sure to bring you to laughter, tears, and revelations that uproot long-held conditioning. It will shift your perspective of Love in a way that brings deep relief to your soul. This is the most authentic book I have read and I feel so blessed for Penelope's vulnerability and willingness to share the most intimate details of her life. I cannot emphasize enough the gift that this book has been to my life and surely will be to anyone who reads it." --Angela Marano, Spiritual Book Reviewer
"More than a memoir, this manifesto for authentic non-dual relationship is in essence a contemplation on Love after love. It traces the ambivalent conditioning associated with being raised as a girl in a conventional 1980s Irish- and Italian-Catholic family, the trauma of childhood sexual abuse, her high-achieving disposition at school, the emotional roller coaster of a budding young adult sexuality, a deeply unsatisfactory first marriage, a serendipitous encounter with her spiritual teacher and soon-to-be husband, and her eventual final liberation into Love." --Aine Keenan, Author of The Secret: A Contemplation on the Nature of Identity, Reality and Mystery
"Do not lose yourself in this relationship!" rang in her ears as the last words Penelope Love heard from her therapist. A young divorcée, she wanted nothing more than to stop her racing mind, but would not give up the search for true love. She quickly found herself saying "I do" again, only this time to her spiritual teacher. Renouncing antidepressants, corporate life, and a judgmental family within six months, the moonstruck bride went on a pilgrimage to India where it finally hit her: she had left her world behind for the highest form of Love.
Such riveting change came with intense lessons about marriage, sexuality, and self-control. What she learned about the discipline of Tantra provoked her to challenge religious and cultural dogmas surrounding authentic love, sex, and metaphysics. This tapestry of prose and poetry invites you on a journey of awakening through the hybrid path of Tantra and Self-inquiry, the investigation "Who am I?" Penelope's intimate essays emerge from her catacombs of conscious exploration to understand the essential purpose of relationship and unravel the mystery of how two become one in the radiant wisdom of the Heart.
