This book... This Book! It is so good... in all the right ways.
It has been on my bedside table, softly centering me in what really matters, just before closing my eyes in the evening. And it does this in such nourishing ways - ways that are deep, but light and heart-opening - ways that remind us of what we know about how to be with each other when we dust away all the clutter.
Rachel Awes presents this through glimpses into the wise words of her clients over the years, accompanied by her own poetic inspiration and artwork.
I bought it after listening to this interview with the sweet, wise author herself. In fact, after that interview I bought two - because I knew it would be a great gift to one of you - and because, to be perfectly honest, this idea of how to be Present with ourselves and one another, how to Listen - REALLY Listen - is the driving force behind so much of my own heArt and soulwork.
People crave this - being seen and really, REALLY listened to.
It's what the first RHYTHM™ Session is all about, too, when you get right down to it - Presence and how we Relate - because it takes some practice, some witnessing, some support, some work from the inside out....
It's good work. It's creative work.
So, of course, I want to spread the good word by giving a copy away! :)

I'd like to thank you ahead of time if you choose to participate in step 2 or 3 to enter - for myself and Rachel - because sharing our work is one of the greatest gifts you can give an artist or healer, and it's how we can best reach exactly who the work is meant for. If you don't win the book this time, you might even consider buying a copy as an early holiday gift for someone special.
Did I mention that Rachel is also one of the amazing teachers alongside me in 21 Secrets???
