It seems that everyone is busy these days. The world is full of information, full of obligations, full of friends and family, full of everything - except fulfillment. Rushing has become a national epidemic. And even if you're rushing between good things - if you have a happy family and a good job, if you have great friends and wonderful colleagues - you can feel drained and exhausted.
In Full Cup, Thirsty Spirit , psychologist Karen Horneffer-Ginter reaches out to readers who are feeling overwhelmed by the sheer volume of life. In this beautifully written book, she helps readers understand that it is this volume, this busyness, that creates a disconnect between their outer lives and inner selves. This separation causes our souls to wilt, and prevents us from experiencing joy and hearing our own wisdom about what needs to happen in our lives. With an elegant narrative voice and the ability to inspire both laughter and compassion, Horneffer-Ginter takes readers on a journey to help them live more fully by exploring six shifts - learning to pause, turn within, fill up, come back to life, remember lightness and embrace difficulty. Through a weave of personal stories, client experiences and practical exercises, readers will learn to find balance in the swirl of daily life while reconnecting with what matters most.
For centuries, ancient cultures embarked on rites of passage to gain entrance to the spiritual realms and attain self-knowledge. Now international lecturer and healer Denise Linn and Meadow Linn draw on their Native American roots, as well as the teachings of other cultures, to create a carefully crafted spiritual program for anyone wishing to venture on a retreat or create a uniquely personal Quest of his or her own.
