The focus of her writing and teaching is on helping people be in the present moment and live the happy and fulfilled life that is possible and on shedding light on the ego and other programming that interferes with that. Gina's teachings are most similar to Eckhart Tolle's, Byron Katie's, Adyashanti's, and A Course in Miracles.

If you have been involved in LOA and are at a place where it doesn't serve you as well as it used to, this is the book for you! The clarity that you will receive from this book is priceless.
I just want to add that although I have read many books from Amazon, this is the first review I have written. This book is a must read!
Her material rings of both authenticity and clarity. You know that favorite author of yours that always "nails it" just as you see it? Or answers questions you've always had? Well for me, Gina Lake does the job. The problem is, I find myself highlighting the whole damn book!:)
Here's a taste (pg. 23):
"You are evolving toward pure Awareness, which is not identified with the body, mind, desires, or feelings but knows itself as All. Until you have acheived this level of dis-identification, you are identified to some extent with your body, mind, desires and feelings.
"Those who are deeply and more completely identifed with these suffer greatly, and those who are less deeply and completely identified with these suffer less."
The focus of this book is on a topic that all of us do, yet few of us think about HOW we do it or even if it is really US doing it!? Most of us are just a slave to our mind's never ending litany of demands and desires which is why there is so much suffering in the world.
Gina Lake has thought alot about this vital subject and clearly explains what the mind is up to and why it has nothing to do with who we really are.

Gina's warmth and love permeates throughout every page, captivating the reader to absorb the depth of her wisdom, moving one beyond mere words to truth itself. "Anatomy of Desire" guides one through the maze of egoic desires to the desires of essence.
A marvelous read and one that may be referred to often.
When I was very active in the world of showing purebred dogs one of my goals was to breed a Best in Show dog,yep, like in the movie. When one of my dogs DID win his first Best in Show I remember getting the phone call and excitedly telling my husband about it. He looked at me and said, "Well, was it enough? Was it what you expected or do you just want more?" Ouch.
Yes, this book should be required reading in junior high schools across the land! Thank you, Gina and Theo!

It's a good read but "self-help" is a difficult

The subject has been sketchily covered, with too many concepts and beliefs, without clear and homogeneous flow. Lacks clear conclusions.Published 22 months ago by Mahesh Mangalick
I thought this was clear and informative. I think others would find it so too. I thought it was a little short. I recommend it.Published on January 13, 2014 by Sylvia Castro
