"Real love is a conscious journey. The journey of conscious love requires being vulnerable. I believe Marisa's vulnerable telling of her story, her unfolding journey to becoming more consciously aware and more relationally responsible, will touch the lives of many women for whom similar stories resonate. Marisa's big heart and big faith in us all shine brightly throughout her pages. I know this telling of her story comes from Marisa's passionate and genuine desire to help - her enthusiasm jumps off the page! She believes in and wants every reader to claim our birthright, our deserved-ness to full life and fulfilling love. The spiritual lessons Marisa shares with us, along her journey to Big Love, are inspiring and a return home. I'm sure Marisa's book will be helpful for many women and many lives looking for love."
