This book rests upon the profound richness of a non-dogmatic philosophical and spiritual foundation. A labor of true love, this is a guide for declaring our sovereignty, and learning to accept complete responsibility for our lives. Using the simple S.T.A.R. formula of Surrender, Trust, Allow, Receive, as well as the Four Essential Qualities of Wholeness (human divinity), Self-love, Play (the now moment) and the Embodiment of the Expanded Golden Rule, the concepts support us in finding a life of total empowerment. Written from the enlightening perspective of philosopher Nina Brown, articulated by Kristy Sweetland, M.A., Master of Transpersonal Psychology, it is a blueprint to spiritual freedom.

These two enlivened authors have provided practical and inspirational insights on putting the S.T.A.R. philosophy to use to help us with some of the toughest human experiences. While reading this book, we are invited to make quantum leaps into the octaves of richness, amazing relationships, creativity, play and more. Once we start to weave this formula into our world, The Fascinated Observer takes new life within us, liberating us from even the most tenacious patterns of stagnancy and complacency, giving us the fuel to move forward, powered by our heart, spirit and highest consciousness. From that place we can stop reacting our way through life, and begin to feel and sense our way more clearly.

S.T.A.R. was gifted by the archangels to build creativity, increase intuition, deeply pacify and revitalize humanity, reminding us that we are sovereign creator beings. This book will encourage growth in ways never considered before. It’s not simply about transforming our life, it’s about transforming our world, inner and outer, and accepting that we have the power to do so.

From spiritual depth to rich practical insights and powerfully enlightening activities that engage, nurture and challenge; this guide has been written to lead readers into the beautiful octaves of inner human divinity that come from the simple yet profound act of becoming a Fascinated Observer.

The Fascinated Observer, co-authored with Nina Brown, represents the merging of her lifetime of experiential training, wisdom, psychology and philosophy.

In 1990, she established an investment company to assist women entrepreneurs. In 1995, she was appointed by President Bill Clinton to represent him at the White House Conference on Small Business and, the next year, was chosen as a Charter Member of Pennsylvania's Best 50 Women in Business.

While in India, she took S.T.A.R. philosophy to Raipur and Mumbai, and then on to Singapore. Two years later, Life University ( in India asked to add S.T.A.R. Philosophy and its companion book, The Fascinated Observer: A Guide to Embodying S.T.A.R. Philosophy, to its curriculum.

Throughout her endeavors, she has been guided by S.T.A.R. principles, devoting her energies full-time to this sacred spiritual mission. She has found that as the needs of the collective shift, the service asked of her evolves, and this transformative work unfolds.
