Succulent Wild Love by SARK and Dr. John Waddell is a fun book about how to take your relationship from being good to great. It is filled with tips and resources about how to have a fulfilling relationship, but also their personal love story about how they achieved such a loving bond.
“This is not your average relationship book. It’s coauthored by one-of-a-kind, out-of-the-box SARK, after all. SARK has made a career out of sharing her personal, journal-like writings and art and inspiring others with her vulnerable and honest journeys toward self-acceptance. She has helped her legions of fans craft lives filled with joy, creativity, and self-love — and even married herself in a “statement of self-liberation” described in Succulent Wild Woman. And yet SARK had left one stone unturned: overcoming her fears to commit to an intimate life partnership. In widower, psychologist, and spiritual teacher John Waddell, she met her match. Together, in what SARK calls her statement of relationship liberation, they offer guidance that combines their whimsy and wisdom. While they are delightful proof that every couple is unique, their insights celebrate the universal yearning to give and receive love.” – Succulent Wild Love
Succulent Wild Love is a joy to read. I have been a fan of SARK since I was in high school. I was the editor of my high school’s literary/art magazine called “Omnibus” and my truly amazing and inspiring teacher went with us to see her at a book signing for one of her books that was just released. I have been a fan and in awe of her ever since. This book doesn’t disappoint even a little bit. It is different, but I love it because it is a combination of her and her love’s writing styles to show how the two can mesh so well, as we all do when we are in a relationship.
SARK and Dr. John Waddell teach about loving yourself, figuring out what you want, how to compromise, what should not be compromised, how to set and keep boundaries, finding joyful solutions, and so much more.
This book is perfect for someone who is in a relationship that is going great… or in one that isn’t going so great, but you both want to work on making it better. It is also perfect for someone who is single and wants to be in a relationship one day. I highly recommend it to everyone.
