Books Loss, Grief, and Grace: The Path to Healing by Meredith L. Young-Sowers Grace is actually the healing energy of Spirit that helps our body listen to a steady, reassuring inner message, one that helps us settle our fears and struggles and turn them into food for our spiritual journey. When we put our hands over our heart center and realize that we are sending ourselves love and recognize the impact it has inside us–that’s grace. The healing response in our body is grace in action, Divine Love in action, helping us on our journey of spiritual empowerment and healing.

Books Everything Matters, Nothing Matters by Gina Mazza Hillier

Written in accessible prose that is vivid, honest and flushed with a sense of wonder, EM, NM guides the reader through seven incremental steps that will help them awaken more fully into their own life: Intention, Daily Practice, Paying Attention, Turning Within, Working with a Mentor, Witnessing——and finally, Integration. Each concept alone is life-changing; taken together, they are nothing short of transformational. By the time the reader has assimilated these seven concepts, their life will not look, feel or be the same.
