  • The Art of Letting Go: Living the Wisdom of Saint Francis

    • ORIGINAL (5 hrs and 58 mins)

    We often think of saints as rare individuals whose gifts far exceed our own, and St. Francis is no exception. But for Fr. Richard Rohr, a prolific author and renowned speaker, the life and teachings of this beloved figure offer an authentic spirituality we can all embody.

    Adam Shields says: "Series of lectures on spiritual development"
    "Longest homily - ever."
    Overall

    A lot of good information, but the narrator, could be due to the content, made it sound like the longest homily I've ever heard. I do regret using a credit for this download.

    With the rare combination of profound psychological insight and deep spirituality that has already drawn millions of readers to his national best-sellers, including The Seat of the Soul, prizewinning author Gary Zukav now joins with his spiritual partner Linda Francis to help us develop a new emotional awareness that is central to our spiritual development.

    Story
    Would you listen to The Heart of the Soul again? Why?

    Yes, I plan on listening (or reading) this book again. It has very ithought provoking content by Gary Zukav explaining how our emotions are "gifts."


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the author's use of how to consider not only our own behaviors, but those around us who we love. Emotional awareness is what we really need to pursue and to live life to it's fullest. In everything - painful adversity though our most joyous moments - it's all part of of the journey and necessary for life fulfillment. Mr. Zukav reminds us if we don't take the time to "feel" our emotions, we lose out on the gift it's meant to give us. By knowing our chakra responses, and truly feeling our body's messages, we should be able to exude positive energy be trusting of whatever we feel.. When we negate feelings consequences will take their toll on our mind and bodies - examples are given.


    What does Gary Zukav and Linda Francis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The 'tone' of the book is better than pacing it out by reading it. They have just enough inflection to bring out the points to remember. I suggest taking this book a chapter at a time and stopping to reflect when urged to do so.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from The Heart of the Soul?

    I will be re-addressing each section of the last 3 chapters one at a time and stopping to reflect when urged to do so. It is in learning to be quiet and feel emotions rather than blocking them out, and accepting them..

  • Water for Elephants

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Some books are meant to be read; others are meant to be heard – Water for Elephants falls into the second group, and is one of the best examples we have of how a powerful performance enhances a great story. Nonagenarian Jacob Jankowski reflects back on his wild and wondrous days with a circus. It's the Depression Era and Jacob, finding himself parentless and penniless, joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.

    Kindle Customer says: "Great Narration!!"
    "This book is FAR better than the movie!"
    Overall

    This is a GREAT story. Sara Gruen does an amazing job in her details of each character. Like a good movie, you don't want to walk away or pause. LOVE this book!
