Featured Review: Donovan’s Bookshelf, June 2017 Issue
The June 2017 issue of Donovan’s Bookshelf features an five-star review of “How To Live From Your Heart”!
How To Live From Your Heart: Deepen Relationships, Develop Creativity & Discover Inner Wisdom talks about ‘heart energy’ and the special challenges of cultivating a style of spiritual growth that lends to peace and wisdom. While the topic may sound familiar (indeed, it’s similar to other new age, self-help and spirituality coverages), the real difference between this and others lies in its inclusion of exercises and concrete plans for fostering this growth.
Chapters present a healthy amount of philosophical, spiritual and relationship insights, but supplement discussions defining heart energy and its potentials with ideas for nurturing this type of energy. This different approach perhaps stems from the fact that Nanette Hucknall is a psychotherapist and artist as well as the founder and president of Higher Self Yoga Inc, and has led numerous retreats and classes for over thirty years throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Her attention to detail thus embraces many different aspects of psychological growth and self-help, adding a solid set of examples through case histories as she discusses how awareness is perceived and how it grows.
The heart can be used to develop creativity, connect to spiritual objectives, improve interpersonal relationships, and make better choices in styles of living and approaches to life.
The book comes packed with directions, from better linking with one’s Higher Self to send intentional messages of love into the world to series of exercises and steps to develop “heart love” (not a slow process, it should be advised). New age readers who are interested in self-growth and who want a focus on the kinds of exercises and steps involved in bringing a better life to fruition will find much to like in this approach. How To Live From Your Heart is a satisfying blend of workbook, philosophical and spiritual discussion, and example-filled testimonial on the force of heart energy and its power to affect and change not just individual lives, but the world.
Its focus on bigger pictures beyond new age philosophies and its grounding in psychology will attract wider audiences than new age readers alone.
