Awakening: A Daily Guide to Conscious Living – Shakti Gawain 2006

Publisher’s Synopsis: Each day, we have the opportunity to awaken to the larger world, the natural world, those around us, and our own goals. Grasping this opportunity can be challenging, but it is possible.

Information overload, lack of time, and an inability to connect with essential spiritual teachings conspire to make our journey to consciousness daunting.

In this revised edition of Awakening, pre-eminent spiritual teacher Shakti Gawain offers gentle daily guidance for that journey.

A classic book of days, Awakening is organized around the calendar year and the seasons, using themes and approaches suitable for each day. Each of the 365 entries is clear and simple, consisting of a topic heading, a short message, and an affirmation or question. Through these short pieces, Shakti shows readers how to recognize and release old patterns and beliefs and how to open to new and nurturing approaches to all areas of their lives. Equal parts affirmation and stimulation, these daily doses of wisdom put readers on the path to greater awareness of their own sense of spiritual truth.

Creating True Prosperity - Shakti Gawain 2000

Amazon Synopsis: Personal-growth pioneer Shakti Gawain presents her definition of prosperity: not bankrolls and material possessions, but rather a fulfilled heart and soul. Interviewing people about their views of prosperity, she has found that most, regardless of their wealth, feel a serious lacking in their overall sense of well-being.

Using a fresh approach, she challenges the Western tendency to equate money with happiness, encouraging readers to examine their longings honestly, follow them to their roots, and separate them from false desires or addictions. Writing with authority and warmth, Gawain shows readers how to create true prosperity in satisfying relationships and the kind of happiness not dependent on possessions or circumstances.
