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 book 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 allreminding us of the luminous nature of great love and showing us the opportunities for expansion that live at its heart.

What People are Saying About This
Jeff Brown has put into words the glory and anguish of love that all of us who have loved know so well. His words burrow into my heart. I feel him. I feel me. I feel our common experience in a way that expands my own personal understanding and gives me new ways to think and talk about the love in my own life. In addition, Jeff draws out of his experiences wisdom that honors these experiences and elevates his awareness. So often when we have had pain in love, it is easy to point the finger and deny our own part in the creation of the challenge. The male character's willingness to take responsibility and take a hard look at his patterns leads to his enlightenment and enlivenment. This approach is inspirational. Anyone dealing with deep heartache over love lost can follow his tracks to come out the other side. And what is on the other side is reason enough to take the journey through the heart of darkness. The ending of the story is filled with surprise and magic. It left me with a big smile on my face. I am delighted I got to take this journey. In my own relationship with my beloved, Tomas, we have hit some rocky patches and have had to take hard looks, too, at our patterns. What Jeff is sharing in his juicy and powerful book is what has worked for me and Tomas. It has been through our willingness to see ourselves more clearly that we have worked through our own dramas. What a gift to have Jeff's book to inspire, support, and illuminate the path of relationship, and how to navigate it more honestly, and successfully. --Joan Heartfield, PhD., Author of Romancing the Beloved, A Sacred Sexual Adventure into Love
In this beautifully written prose, Jeff Brown weaves powerful teachings and wisdom into a vulnerable tale of love, pain and truth. While reading, I experienced an integration of my heart and mind that opened a channel directly to my soul. I believe that with every vulnerable and raw truth told, each of us is uplifted into a timeless place where there are no words - just experiences of the soul. Thank you Jeff for taking me there.” --Kelly Mcnelis, Founder of Women For One; www.womenforone.com
Jeff Brown elegantly weaves an evolutionary romance in An Uncommon Bond. Whereas most love stories end with "happily ever after," Jeff takes us beyond the fairy tale and into the grounded spirituality necessary to truly meet the Beloved, both within ourselves and in our relationships. He is a master wordsmith, engaging and enlightening us with his whimsical wordplay as we watch the journey unfold between Lowen and Sarah, the story's "Scar-Crossed Lovers." Armed with his witty-wise lexicon and his deep understanding of human nature, Jeff presents a new paradigm of relating that is essential to the healing and growth of our society. --Candice Holdorf, Actress and Author of From 6 to 9 and Beyond: Widening the Lens of Feminine Eroticism
An Uncommon Bond is both evocative and riveting, wrapping its way around the heart and soul of anyone who's ever been involved or interested in a deeper type of love that extends beyond the realm of common sense and connection. Jeff Brown brilliantly explores the rapture, the darkness, the confusion, and the elevation that pulses inside the painfully exquisite merging of two people who were unprepared for such a transformational and transcendent relational experience. Stunningly eye opening, shape shifting and profound, I will never again look at the beautiful possibilities of love same as before. --Victoria Erickson, Author of Edge of Wonder
Jeff Brown holds a mirror up to the dance of the masculine and the feminine in this fearless look into the everyday rise and fall of relationships. A realistic and honest view of the true meaning of soulmates. --Jill Angelo, Author of Sacred Space: Turning Your Home Into a Sanctuary.
Jeff Brown has done it again... Within your hands is another magical masterpiece. If you are ready for a whirlwind of radical honesty, bare-bone intimacy and the raw dissecting that MUST go into Sacred Relationship then read on. A jewel of the highest order. --Anaiya Sophia, Author of Sacred Sexual Union & co-author of Womb Wisdom
In An Uncommon Bond, we are shown love as a relentless force within the universe, acting on the lives of the two main characters to crack open their hearts that their souls might come home to each otherand we recognize their story as our own. Written with passion, honesty and wisdom, this is an uncommon book. --Philip Shepherd, Author of New Self, New World: Recovering Our Senses in the Twenty-first Century

This book came into my life just about the same time He came back. Reading these pages affected me deeply in the remembering of That love...the one that still dances around in my soul. Thank you Jeff for being brave enough to write it!
Perhaps the most important and compelling book every written about love and relationship. I couldn't put it down. It spoke to every stage of my own relationship history and helped me to make sense of things that have bothered me for decades. It should be mandatory reading for every person in their 20's and would save everyone a heap of trouble!
