This intimate and revealing love story is told through the eyes of Lowen as he experiences the heights and depths that come with meeting his beloved, Sarah. In this remarkably engaging story, we walk beside the lovers as they touch the divine and struggle to ground their love in daily life.
From the heights of sacred sexuality to the depths of human foible, they ultimately have to choose: surrender to this love or shrink back to mediocrity, work through their emotional baggage or flee the connection, open to the next portal of possibility or postpone it until the next lifetime. Shaped and reshaped in love's cosmic kiln, Sarah and Lowen become a symbol of our own longing for wholeness in the presence of another.
This audiobook is a rare and unique gem, one of the first of its kind. Rivetingly real and magically poetic, it sheds new light on the evolving relational paradigm of "uncommon bonds", "soulmates", and Jeff Brown's unique term, "wholemates". In a world that yearns for deep soul connection, An Uncommon Bond provides a blueprint of conscious relationship for us all - reminding us of the luminous nature of great love and showing us the opportunities for expansion that live at its heart.

"Grateful this story exists"
I must admit it took me a little while to get into the language and style of the story as it seemed just a little too schmaltzy and almost like a parody of what us conscious/yogi/embodiment types talk about and experience. That right there was the indication that I was to receive a potent dose of medicine from this story. Resistance often is the precursor to something transformative and important coming in. When I began reading, I was involved in my own deep soul connection with a beloved that changed me forever. I put the story down for several months when our partnership ended and I, like the narrator/protagonist, went through a mm epic dark night of the soul in order to journey toward love and light within. When I picked back up, the timing was divinely aligned as I was truly able to receive the abundant wisdom Jeff Brown offers here. This is a beautiful, powerful, honest account of what relationship as the path to awakening is. Not a fairytale, though certainly a love story, An Uncommon Bond is ultimately a model for self love, self awareness and self sourcing the fulfillment of our deepest desires and needs from within so that we can be in right and rewarding relationship with our own self, and yes, if that's in the stars for us, with another. As one of the conscious/yogi/embodiment types this book is clearly meant to appeal to and resonate with, I found it highly relatable and relevant and am appreciative of just how easy it was to find myself in this story and the story in me.
"I will never be the same. thank you. "
Thank you so much for putting the roller coaster I have experienced into words. it is so comforting to know I am not alone in my doubts and fears.
"Do not like narration performance"
I had read several excerpts from this book and was really looking forward to listening to it. I am less than half way through and have no interest of listening to any more. I do not care for the narration performance. I have tried speeding it up and slowing it down... still a big nope. I gave the story 3 stars since it is an interresting concept and will try reading it instead of listening to the audio.
"Irritating and corny"
Some good nuggets of wisdom in here but overall I found it to be irritating and corny. I forced myself to listen to the end based on the great reviews but it wasn't for me.
"Soul wrenching and fulfilling."
I have to say, I am emotional writing this. This story touched me in a multitude of ways. It's hard to understand why we feel certain bonds. Why we turn away from some and can't turn away from others. It's a great read and was very emotional for me. It was cleansing and healing for me. Thank you for sharing!
"i really wanted to like it"
It held a lot of promise. Sadly it did not deliver. I've made to halfway point. Going to try to finish it. I think the writing is thin, characters are under-developed and act erratically. Performance is also lacking.
I listened to this entire book In 3 days. I couldn't stop. I laughed, I cried, I paused and took it all in, and I cried some more. I felt as if he knew me personally and saw into my life and could feel my heart. I will listen to this over and over. There are so many life and heart truths here it's hard to put into words really. All I can say is Thank You. Just thank you.
"just blow me away, Jeff Brown..."
the most unusual and beautiful book, written so creatively and an incredibly deep understanding of true love.
struggled to finish but some good points. I felt it went on and on too much
"Style is lacking, but the heart is full."
Though, I didn't care much for some of the style of the writing, or the style of the voice reading the story, the heart of the story is very touching and resonant to me, and resembles my own experience in many ways.
