Publisher's Summary

In the late 1970s, Jerry Wennstrom was a rising star in the New York art world when he decided that the ultimate creative leap was to destroy his large body of art, give away all of his possessions, and spend the next 10 years wandering, seeking, and listening. "It was a powerful, holy experience that left me shaken and empty, but exhilarated," says Jerry of the destruction of his art.

In his book The Inspired Heart: An Artist's Journey of Transformation, Jerry Wennstrom tells the extraordinary story of his daring exploration into the source of his creativity. He tells of a life lived by the singular requirement of Grace - to remain fearlessly attuned to the heart. The Inspired Heart has a foreword by Care of the Soul author Thomas Moore.

    "An Inspiring Story"

    I purchased this title after listening to an interview given by it's author, Jerry Wennstrom. The book takes the form of a series of short stories from the authors life, that all come together to tell his amazing story. I really liked this format, because it is easy to just listen to one story, then come back and listen to another.
    The narration comes from the author himself, which I loved. It is easy to follow, and there is nothing like listening to someone tell their own personal story - the emotion and nuance come through in the narrators voice.

    The story itself is beautiful and inspiring. I felt encouraged to bring more beauty, serendipity, and trust into my own life after listening to these tales. There is a sense of humility, wonder, and love that comes across to the listener.

    Highly recommended!

    "Awful narration"
    What would have made The Inspired Heart better?

    A proper narrator. I think the story is quite interesting but the story telling is so dreary it's almost unlistenable to.
