“This is a book of great authenticity, practicality, and heart.”

“Deep as the ocean, penetrating as the wind, purifying as fire, practical as earth. Gail Straub’s book is a gift of spirit. A simple and thorough guide to digging back through the layers of life, it helps deliver the reader to the deep well of compassion that dwells within every human heart. What is found within can then be given back to the larger circle of life as love and service.”
— Joan Borysenko, author, “Seven Paths to God: The Ways of the Mystic”
“May the message of this graceful book take hold in self and society now–in the present generation–and at this great turning of the millennial wheel.”
— Matthew Fox, author, “Original Blessing,” and “The Reinvention of Work”
“Gail Straub’s clear-eyed compassion is grounded in years of both spiritual practice and social action. Defying our tendency to separate the soul’s longings for self-growth and social justice, Gail poignantly demonstrates the truth the heart has always known: that true self-care takes us deeper into the world and caring for the world takes us deeper into the essential self.”
— Oriah Mountain Dreamer, author, “The Invitation”
