In the book a character says, “All women are witches.” Do you mean that as a positive thing?

Yeah, absolutely. Yes, yes, yes. All women have a perception much more developed than men. So all women somehow, being repressed for so many millennia, they ended up by developing this sixth sense and contemplation and love. And this is something that we have a hard time to accept as part of our society. We try to see reality as just a physical thing and that it does not go beyond that. But what we have to do, women included, is to develop more this feminine side, meaning intuition, meaning being open to a new perception of reality which, in general, women are much more open to.


Why do you think many people are so threatened by the feminine face of God?

Because that demands that we accept more love as the only guidance in your life. And we don’t do that because we are afraid to suffer. We're going to lose control. We’re going to be dragged to a path that we don’t know.

Why is love so hard for most of us to accept?

Why Love Is Worth the Risk

Because it implies suffering. You know that. And well, first, love is the most important emotion in life. And second, it is also the one that is wild, that can take us to heaven or hell. I’m not saying that love always takes you to heaven. Your life can become a nightmare. But that said, it is worth taking the risk.

There’s always a tension, in your books between losing the spiritual path in romantic human love. Is that how you see it?

Absolutely. Yes. Yeah. Which is not something to fear.

But it seems like your characters fear that quite a bit.

Yeah, because we as human beings, we do fear that. But at the end of the day--well, just relax and enjoy it because life’s like this.

And in this book music is a big factor. Do you dance?

Dancing with the Angels
I do. When I’m dancing I’m not thinking about anything. I am here. I am totally there. You know? And the feeling is a sensation of being away from myself. My soul dances with the angels and my body dances with my wife.

What kind of music do you dance to?
