Austin, Texas (PRWEB) February 25, 2008
Many spiritual books on the shelves today focus solely on abstract, emotional concepts, so author Nancy Oelklaus' holistic, integrative approach to spiritual wellbeing is an incredibly fresh addition to the genre. Oelklaus integrates logic, reason, emotion, recovery, science and ancient wisdom to create a recipe for wholeness in her new book "Journey from Head to Heart: Living and Working Authentically" (ISBN 9781932690439, Loving Healing Press, 2008).
"Journey from Head to Heart" is both an inspirational read and useful workbook that includes tools, processes and advice for making and sustaining personal change. Oelklaus has had four distinct careers and has survived several broken relationships, but she has managed to learn and grow wiser from each experience. "Journey from Head to Heart" is a comprehensive guide that openly shares everything she's learned in her ongoing spiritual journey, so that others can achieve their desires easily and joyfully.
"Journey from Head to Heart" emphasizes the importance of living a conscious life with purpose. "I hope that after reading my book, people will decide to start the journey to become the person they are truly meant to be," Oelklaus says. Rather than coasting through life on autopilot, she suggests getting in touch with your inner, authentic self to discover the drive that lies beneath your goals, a reflective process that brings a life full of joy and meaning.
Understanding the authentic self -- equivalent to the soul, or spirit -- is an important part of the lessons in "Journey from Head to Heart." By seeking out this still, small voice, people can find the power to overcome the flawed behavioral patterns they use to deal with the world, Oelklaus says.
Oelklaus speaks in the compassionate and sincere voice of a best friend to those who are exhausted from consistently trying, but never arriving at their desired goals. As they face new life challenges, readers will find that this encouraging book can be picked up over and over again to get them through tough times. "Journey from Head to Heart" is an empowering map that reaches out to analytical minds, as well as open hearts, leading everyone on a journey toward a fulfilling life powered by their own authentic inner spirit.
