The third and final publication in the Exquisite History trilogy. The apparent paradox between the concepts visionary and workbook are here resolved by asking the uncomfortable question What do we love? Critique is futile; it is too late for cautionary tales. The workbook consists of the following chapters:  Boundary, Fire, Food, Fulfillment, Unity, Resurrection, Freedom. Each chapter provides theoretical texts excerpted from N. O. Brown’s Love’s Body, followed by the appropriate workbook exercises. Blank pages are provided after each chapter heading so that one can fulfill the exercises. This project began with each participant completing their own VW, a year-long process. Those workbooks remain as the core archive of the project.
