Betty Luceigh shares her spiritual journey to encourage readers along a self-reflecting path

Dr. Betty Luceigh had a hard time reconciling her internal conflict between science and spirit, represented by a division between heart and mind. She was exploring each of these paths without finding comprehensive answers to life.

It wasn’t until she experienced true Beauty – as a universal essence – that she was able to move toward unification of these isolated channels. In "Is It Beautiful? A Journey from Separation toward Unification," Luceigh chronicles how her two paths moved toward one and her eyes were opened to the wholeness of life.

“Is It Beautiful?” is a resource tool that features spiritual insight that will allow readers to explore and serve their true selves. Luceigh narrates the role Beauty has had in her life and the significance of asking the question stated in the book’s title.

It includes Luceigh’s quest to unify her mind and heart and encompasses key events and cultural shifts. The memoir, expanded with poems and essays, sheds light on “a sense of separation” and promotes personal exploration and a deepening awareness of wholeness.

“Division seems to be the reoccurring theme in our lives, our news and our world,” Luceigh said. “I believe we need to heal our individual selves, if we are to heal divisions in our interpersonal relationships. In order to move forward as a human race, each of us needs a deep understanding and sense of our true self. "Is It Beautiful?" offers my personal experiences of how Beauty can help guide one through that process."
