Through her gentle guidance, Shakti shows us how every relationship we have at every moment can be seen as a path toward greater consciousness, healing, and growth.

    Practical tools for delving into old patterns. Recommended to me by a retired psychiatrist who said, "It saved my marriage," that was reason alone to read it. Gawain says, "If a situation or relationship is unacceptable, we can acknowledge that we have helped create this on a deep level and therefore there is a purpose to what we are experiencing. The truth is that we get what we expect and ask for on the deepest levels. This is not about blame, pity or being a victim, however. If we believe we Practical tools for delving into old patterns.

If we believe we play a part in creating it, then we believe we can play a part in healing it." And she suggests that if we look at what we find most challenging in someone else, it is likely an issue for us, and if we look at the shadow characteristics, those we reject most vehemently, there is most likely, something in them that would benefit us greatly.

    I had the pleasure of hearing Shakti speak at our local community college in the early 90's. She is an amazing person and very inspiring. She was one of my mentors who ignited me on my spiritual path outside of organized religion. This book is wonderful and very insightful. I can't wait to re-read it again and spend more time learning from "my shadow sides" and exploring my "common selves".

"We view our relationships as paths because they lead us in the direction of healing and growth. They offer us an opportunity to use reflections we see in others as insight into our own process, especially understanding where we might need to take our process next. By holding this perspective, we are able to approach interactions in an entirely new way. We can use our reactions, even our negative feelings and experiences, as events that can bring us our greatest healing and growth. With this new outlook, the possibilities are endless."

    I value multiple self/inner child dialogue work and this is a good introduction/refresher on that approach to personal growth. But this was a soup of personal story, restatements of work by Hal and Sidra Stone, heartfelt outreach to victims of domestic violence, transcriptions of facilitations, and descriptions of visualization techniques that never blended together for me. I read to the end, hoping for something original and didn't find it.

I read to the end, hoping for something original and didn't find it. As the authors said, this was an attempt to bring their workshops into a book form and, I think, without the personalities and group interactions the potential power of what they conveyed came across as flat and, for me, boringly prescriptive.

    This book didn't live up to my expectations. Living In The Light is like my bible and I expected this book to affect me in a similar way but it didn't. There are usable thoughts and processes however, it didn't resonate with me that much. This book didn't live up to my expectations.
