Journey from Head to Heart is exactly that, integrating logic, reason, emotion, spirituality, recovery, science, and ancient wisdom from a variety of sources to create a recipe for wholeness. The tools and processes are designed for people who are a little wary of "touchy-feely" or "New Age" approaches.
Praise for Journey From Head to Heart

"For beginners on a spiritual voyage, as well as for experienced travelers, Journey From Head To Heart is very powerful. I couldn't put it down. Its stories, told with clarity and simplicity, make it a treasure."
-Dr. Linda O'Neal, Executive Director, Southwest Education Alliance

"This book is for people struggling with work/life balance, for entrepreneurs, for those seeking their authentic purpose in life and work. It lays out a plan to get ego out of the way, lead with humility, and communicate so that others are attracted to your cause."
-Dick Moeller, President St. David's Community Health Foundation

"What separates this book from the majority of self-help manuals is the author's awareness that many people in today's world neglect to acknowledge the importance of personal faith and spirituality in the growth process, and in turn, are unable to integrate their actions with their beliefs."
-Lisa Heidle, Rebecca's Reads

Editorial Reviews

Rebecca's Reads - Lisa Heidle
Dr. Oelklaus focuses on the importance of moving away from the demands of ego toward a true, more authentic self. What separates this book from the majority of self-help manuals is the author's awareness that many people in today's world neglect to acknowledge the importance of personal faith and spirituality in the growth process, and in turn, are unable to integrate their actions with their beliefs.
Reader Views - Vicki Landes
Oelklaus' book is a result of her own struggles to find her path and transcend beyond what she'd fallen into in life. Heartfelt and deep, she bares her past demons in her stories of experience and poetry from recovery. Throughout the book, she gently urges her readers to lead a conscious life, with purpose and values that extend to all of our daily circumstances. She uses touching examples from her own turbulent path to illustrate how we can rise above our egos, control our perspectives, & lives

Meet the Author

Nancy Oelklaus lives on the rim of a canyon in Austin, Texas, with her husband, Harlan, and Feathers, a curly white lap dog. Nancy lightens the load for leaders and ordinary people by teaching them powerful findings from neuroscience ignited by the scriptural wisdom of the ages. Her professional and personal clients learn to create environments where people thrive, at work and at home. Specializing in helping people make transitions, her knowledge and skills have been learned through more than 30 years of working in education and business to understand how adults learn and change—and how they can do it faster so that they may spend more time in “happily ever after.”

Dr. Oelklaus holds a bachelor’s degree in communications/theater education
from Oklahoma Baptist University, a master’s degree in English from the University of North Texas, and a doctorate in educational administration from Texas A&M University in Commerce. Nancy enjoys taking photographs and writing poetry.
