Many of us buy into a manufactured idea of beauty, unconsciously giving away our power to define it for ourselves. In a society where physical ideals are always changing, The Pearlescent Flame: Living Beautiful tells the story of Peregrine, a young woman on a quest to embody her definition of true beauty. Readers will embark with Peregrine on a journey from New Orleans to Paris, Colorado to Scotland, as she transmutes her beliefs about beauty through a process of internal alchemy. Through debriefs and explorative questions, each chapter will challenge readers to expand their definitions of beauty—and invite them to make the process of internal alchemy their own. In the end, The Pearlescent Flame is not just Peregrine's story. It is an inspiring and fascinating guide to a place of clarity, understanding, and acceptance in which we can all truly live beautiful.
