Spiritual seeker extraordinaire, Hillier chronicles her explorations and growth through the rich garden of a Christian background, Buddhist sensibilities and practices, "create-your-own-reality" paradigms, spiritual healers, New Age thought and other paths. The common ground is the desire to live life fully in the now. Hillier also cites popular luminaries like Eckhart Tolle, Deepak Chopra, David Hawkins, David Whyte and Rumi to flavor the stew.
In seven chapters, she instructs like-minded souls to embrace the values of intention, daily practice, paying attention, turning within, working with a mentor, witnessing and integration. Hillier, who also works as an editor, could have benefited from a stronger editorial hand herself to increase precision. Her style is full of breezy lingo ("Follow me through a personal tale of woe then whoa"; "There's no place like OM"; "For all you dudes out there...") that is not timeless. Yet, her good intention to find the path to the sacred life is.
Her strongest chapter, on witnessing, gracefully explains how to simultaneously live life and observe it. A chapter with complementary exercises and activities for each preceding chapter concludes her sincere effort. -- Publisher's Weekly, March 3, 2008
