Overview

What distinguishes the possible from the impossible? Happiness from unhappiness? More often than not, it is the emotions, beliefs, and opinions that fill our mind, about ourselves and the world. We lose our innate wisdom and peace when we are self-critical, worried, or unable to control our urges. Our habits of thinking and being seem to have a life of their own, and will not truly change until we become aware of how to utilize our innate healing power within, which holds great awareness, intelligence, and compassion―our true Self.

Wende Birtch invites the reader to dive deep into a new level of Self-awareness and compassion with a 6-step self-inquiry practice, based on the powerful and transformational process of Internal Family SystemsSM. With dedication to this daily practice, we soon discover the ability to heal inner hatred, fear and division within ourselves with an amazing Presence of genuine love, wisdom, and courage. We can then experience a new way of being, awakening our greatest potential to love and lead in the world with joy and genuine compassion. Learning to believe in our innate goodness, and that of each other, could possibly be the foundational spiritual practice needed to heal our individual and universal divide.
