Your Life Path provides a self-discovery–based personal growth and development toolkit. It applies the concept of life mapping, which is a simple, fun, and comprehensive method for reflecting on your past and "re-modeling" your future. This is the perfect book for anyone facing significant life transitions or who simply desires to gain greater awareness about his or her own life story. Your Life Path combines rich, well-illustrated discussion from the author’s extensive research and case studies with practical, hands-on creative tools that engage and guide the life mappers through a gradual, self-paced repertoire of journaling, active imagination, and creative representation tools in order to help them realize their value-driven goals and arrive at a better understanding of some of their most persistent inner conflicts. Dr. Watts's program helps life mappers strengthen adaptive strategies in order to enrich their life's journey and assist them in achieving their dreams.
