Overview

When the heart is allowed to work its alchemy, we discover that we can transmute our pain into peace, our grief into joy, and our anger into serenity. Alchemy of the Heart shows that transformation happens differently from how we expect.

The heart can only come to our aid if, instead of running from what we dislike, we become fully present with what we are experiencing.

Definitely a must read for all who desire living life in response vs. reaction. This work offers many great tools for the mind to recognize and enjoy the process of evolution of the emotions. Suggest this book be followed by this author's previous work; The Presence Process.:
