A few times each year, I have the honor of spotlighting a book that I think will resonate with the women who gather here for sacred feminine exploration and healing. This month it’s my pleasure to share a behind the scenes conversation for This Sacred Life with my friend, Kristine Carlson to discuss her new book “From Heartbreak to Wholeness: The Hero’s Journey to Joy.”

Heartbreak to Wholeness is a guidebook for discovering how heartbreak can become the doorway to profound meaning and joy.

This Sacred Life can be enjoyed by clicking on the audio player below or you can download the podcast to your iPhone, Android phone, or mp3 player at iTunesSpotify, Podbean, and Stitcher.

Be sure to read through the transcript for links to the book, bonuses, and entry to Kristine’s Facebook group.

What was your inspiration for writing From Heartbreak to Wholeness: The Hero’s Journey to Joy?

This book represents a ten-year journey to healing…walking a path of soul growth and awakening and returning to the joy of having a love affair with life.

What do you love most about sharing your new book with the world?

There are many reasons I am thrilled to share this book.  Mostly, I wish to deeply engage and inspire people to live fully awake to their potential and to know that the suffering they endure serves them well and will transform them–if they choose to be the hero.

What teachings will readers come away with after reading your book?

This book is rich in teachings–among the key ones are:

We don’t get to chose what happens to us–we get to choose how we move forward.

Life circumstances aren’t happening to us–they happen for us.

Your soul remembers why you came to this earth—you need to tune into your soul through inquiry.

Your heartbreak brings you to the door of transformation–step in and meet your fear of change–you will rebirth and emerge.

There is a message in the mess–you can define and find the reason why this happened.

As you heal and return to joy–it is having a love affair with life that will fully engage you.

Tell me about the community you love to serve?

We have a very rich, supportive and growing group at Facebook:
