We come from a Source that is rooted in the stars—but we’re planted on the Earth, with all of its loneliness and grief. So, how can we find our way back to that original wellspring? With her teachings that weave together the psychological and spiritual dimensions of life, Annette Hulefeld is a spiritual mentor for the modern age. As her own story reveals, many of us feel a pervasive sense of worthlessness because of separation from our own Divine nature; the split of our human nature from Soul. In a lively, engaging narrative, Hulefeld shows us how a girl who grew up Catholic in a family challenged with poverty, abuse, and mental illness found a mysticism that brings body and Soul together again. Rooted in the Stars is a timely and personal story that will resonate with everyone carving their own path to a modern spirituality.
