Spiritual Sex Connection—Contemporary Wisdom from Stonehenge and other Ancient Stone Circles

For much of last June, I had the pleasure of wandering around many of Britain’s stone circles and other sacred monuments.  This was a manifestation of a long-held dream, begun in the 1960s, when I was driving from London to Bath England with my four-year-old son, and we came face to face with Stonehenge, looming […]
