Reviews

It has been said that the teacher who is indeed wise does not bid you to enter the house of his or her wisdom, but rather leads you to the threshold of your own. If you want to access your inner wisdom, this is a book you want by your side. If you want to live in accord with your higher power, if you want to be inspired by your experience of life, you should know that this is a book filled with reliable and authentic support. John Robbins, author "The Food Revolution," "The New Good Life," and "Diet For a New America "" A bedside book for the heart. A daily reading in healing for the part of us we have put aside for later. A letting-go of our forgetfulness of how very beautiful we essentially are. A turning toward oneself with loving-kindness. Stephen Levine, author of Healing into Life and Death, "Who Dies"?, and "Meetings at the Edge "" The way you talk to yourself, including that murmur in the back of your head, continually shapes your outlook, your mood, and the circuits in your brain. In a warm, down-to-earth, and wonderfully useful way, "Living with Your Heart Wide Open "shows you how to change that storyline for the better for greater confidence and happiness, resilience in the face of stress, and peace of mind.

Freedom from the prison of a life on automatic pilot rests within these powerful and poetic pages. Daniel J. Siegel, MD, author of "Mindsight "" A bold new book that shows how engaging with mindful awareness and compassion can allow us to step out from behind conditional and limiting self-driven narratives and into a more openhearted embrace of our lives.
