In an age when modern reproductive technology is moving at a rapid and alarming rate, Conscious Conception is an alternative exploration into understanding personal fertility, as well as a comprehensive guide to discovering newfound meaning in our sexuality. Combining knowledge of myth and culture, authors Jeannine Parvati Baker and Frederick Baker offer a step-by-step manual of fertility awareness, depth psychology, and psychic birth control and interweave the five elements—Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Ether—as tools for discovery in the face of reproductive challenges. Including numerous contributions from experts in the field, the book investigates a broad range of topics, from the causes of infertility to the spiritualization of sexuality. Conscious Conception urges us to see all of the possibilities in life’s plan of continuation and to seek a clearer communion with our own reproductive experience. Over 20,000 copies sold.
"This book returns our attention to basics... Children become not as an accident of passion or a product of family planning but as an aspect of the same nature in which we are already immersed, another dimension of our own sexuality and love." —Richard Grossinger, author of Embryogenesis
"Conscious Conception is the issue of the decades to come. As our children are, so will our future be." —Roger Lorenz, Columbiana Journal
