From the Heart: Explorations in True Nature and Unconditional Love

from the heart

A collection of reflections from therapists and coaches

Join psychotherapist and coach Nicola Drew and 45 colleagues as they explore the deeper aspects of being a human. Insights are revealed as each contributor explores two questions:
* What would you like the world to know about true nature and unconditional love? and
* How has this deeper seeing changed your world?

Contributors include Michael Neill, Dr Jack Pransky, Jamie Smart, Dr Rita Shuford, Clare Dimond and, of course, Thoughtful Raven’s Helen Amery and Sara Priestley.

Author's Note

“All we are is peace, love and wisdom and the power to create the illusion that we are not.” Jack Pransky.

In the middle of a global pandemic the idea for this book showed up. Unannounced and unprompted. To be honest, I didn’t have the time, energy or skills to write a book – but the idea was persistent. My first mistake was mentioning it to my partner. He loved the idea and wouldn’t let me wriggle out of it, my usual habit when inspiration strikes. I then decided to use the book to raise money for a charity close to my heart – Heart Link Children’s Charity – how could I not take action now? Finally it came to me to invite other people in to share their beautiful stories and insights about life.

I’m so grateful for every one of these factors that pinned me down to my laptop so this book could express itself through me. I am deeply touched by what has shown up on these pages and I hope the message will ripple out into the world at a time when love and understanding are much needed.

In part one of the book I give some background into the glimpses that life gave me into true nature and unconditional love and the search that followed. Part two is a compilation of those other people’s insights which provide such a rich diversity of life experiences but point to common understandings about the deeper aspects of life.

Much love,

Superb idea and brilliantly done. Such a wonderful insight into how life looks for these people and how they came to the knowledge. Light bulbs going off all over for me and helping me see how my life can be. Wonderful.
