Informed by her own peripatetic and tumultuous life experiences, internationally recognized counselor, author, columnist, and life-coach Beck has developed an enthusiastic and emotive guide designed to help individuals reclaim their true essence and capture a more conscious acceptance of personal desires, needs, and goals. Employing four principles she terms “Wordlessness,” “Oneness,” “Imagination,” and “Forming,” Beck prescribes both concrete and ethereal methods for harnessing one’s unrecognized powers to achieve a more authentic presence. By tapping into these underutilized forces, it is possible to refine one’s thinking and define one’s attitudes, and the resultant revelations can boost one’s productivity. Aided by inventive examples, specific exercises, and intriguing questionnaires, readers are encouraged to embrace the contextual insights such programs bestow. An energetic devotee and indefatigable practitioner of these precepts, Beck communicates the benefits and extols the rewards to be found in leading a more thoughtful, natural, and creative life. Filled with astonishing first-person experiences and sprightly anecdotes, Beck’s guide tantalizes with limitless possibilities. --Carol Haggas
