Relationship advice expert, Dr. Diana Kirschner, spells out seven lessons that the character learns for personal growth.

“Opening Love’s Door: The Seven Lessons” by relationship advice expert, Dr. Diana Kirschner, is fast becoming a self-help cult classic in the tradition of “The Celestine Prophecy.”

“After publication the modern day fable instantly hit the Amazon Buzz list in Literature and Fiction and stayed there for many weeks. People have gravitated to the book in droves, using it for book clubs and buying ten copies at a time to give out to their friends,” says Irene Watson, Managing Editor of Readerviews.com. “It reads like a Chick-lit romantic adventure, but offers insightful relationship advice and seven life-altering lessons. Female and even male readers have been giving “Opening Love’s Door: The Seven Lessons” over-the-top five star reviews. They say it speaks to them in profound ways about love and life." “Opening Love’s Door: The Seven Lessons” was featured as “Book of the Week” on readerviews.com during the week of January 9, 2006.

In the story line of the self-help cult classic, luscious dreams of love plague Janna, a dedicated therapist who gives all to her clients and little to herself. Only when a husky male client begins following her, does she seek out help--in the form of a spiritual and magical mentor, Raphaela Love.

Raphaela teaches Janna seven powerful life lessons. As Janna takes on the first lesson, Fear Lights the Way to Mastery, she faces the stalker and confronts her incestuous uncle. These courageous steps are part of a momentous journey out of her ordinary, constricted reality and into Raphaela's world of unlimited possibilities.

Dr. Diana Kirschner also has a #1 bestselling Amazon self-help short, “The Ultimate Guide to Getting the Love You Want,” which is a companion workbook for “Opening Love’s Door: The Seven Lessons.”
