I found this book helpful for its integration of talk therapy combined with body work. Many of the book’s exercises focused on combining breath and the body in working on negative thinking patterns. I found doing the exercises while reading this book to be a powerful experience that deepened my understanding of the author’s guided assistance towards personal growth. – Amazon Reviewer
If you are a seeker, feeling lost or confused, wanting deeper relationships and/or wanting greater peace and joy, this book can answer your call. It is a self-help guidebook filled with exercises to bring you to a sense of your authentic self.
This book will guide you to living beyond the “supposed to’s” and living a creative life no matter what your outer vocation may be. It is set up as a voyage. You are the Captain of your Ship of Life. How you chart the course has to do with how you experience life. Throughout this voyage, you will be evaluating the rulebook of your life. Our rulebook is made up of the things we were taught, our family, community, and society at large, traditions, ways we were taught to treat people, values, priorities, and collective attitudes and beliefs. This book suggests you get to know how you respond to life on automatic pilot and how your response may contrast with your personal truth and authentic self.
You are guided to become aware, evaluate, edit, and in some cases re-write your book. We will discover, as we follow our hearts, our true nature with love and care for all living beings, that we do not need to have rules. We connect to a deeper truth that is beyond all rules. Enjoy the journey.
