Overview

Your Journey to Self-Discovery

“What is truly important to me? Who am I? What is this feeling I always have within me?” These are some of the questions Jennifer James’ newest book helps your answer. Tapping into spiritual teachings and mythologies, Visions from the Heart outlines the twenty “vision steps” most common to the wisdom traditions that provide instructions, restrictions, reassurance, and direction. She suggests using these steps to deepen your own self-knowledge: “What should I do? What do I want? How do I feel?” Or you can use them for business: “What would work? What is the weakness or the strength of this project?” Or they can be useful for family and relationship issues: “What is going wrong in my family? What part is each person playing? What would make the family work better? Who needs to change?”

With candor and warmth, she shares many of the personal insights she gained about her childhood, her relationships, and her career while on her own vision quest. She gives us powerful excerpts from many literary and cultural works, including poetry and fiction, to ponder and reflect upon. Most of all, Dr. James serves as a real teacher in setting up guideposts to help each of us discover our own spirit.

Drawing from various literary and cultural sources, including poetry, fiction, and her own personal reminiscences, Dr. James--the bestselling author of Success Is the Quality of Your Journey--outlines in 20 chapters the journey to self-discovery and personal change.
