Two people who are in love and exploring altered states: I am so envious. In the pages of Ecstatic Love, David and Rebecca report back on their expeditions into Deep Space 2.0, using inspired words and original images, reminiscent of the whimsical verse/art of jazz poet Kenneth Patchen." Nick Herbert, Ph.D., author of Quantum Reality, Physics on All Fours, and Harlot Nature --Private communication

This book of art and poetry is a fine offering into the pool of the new vision, the healthful collaboration between the male and female, image and word. It is at once a love story between two beings, an affair between picture and poem and a lens focusing the infinite into the finite and vice versa. I like all of that. David and Rebecca have taken the Petri dish of their own individual paths of integration and popped their relationship into it as the extra alchemical catalyst. It is a fine blueprint for others to be inspired by, for their love story is so entwined with their inspiration. I have always been a champion of the role of art in personal therapy. Who amongst us does not need healing? Fine art is the distillate of all that raw goop of self, churned and burned in the fires of self-observation. Rebecca and David have both taken this therapeutic bull by its proverbial horns and, seeing the reflection in each other, have honed new magic to expose and feed their hearts and souls. All this is served with a lightness of touch, a playfulness of spirit. This is the fertile ground which breeds for them, and, by extension, all lovers, the bliss of realization. Penny Slinger, artist, photographer, filmmaker, multimedia artist, and coauthor of Sexual Secrets --Private communication
