Editorial Reviews

Review

“…this beautiful book (is) the loveliest introduction to and immersion in the practice of guided imagery I have ever seen… Guided imagery, as presented in this book, becomes more than self-help; it becomes a tool of self-realization.”
—Linda Graham, author of Bouncing Back: Rewiring Your Brain for Maximum Resilience and Well-Being

“One thing comes clear when reading this book:  Leslie has the chops – she’s an experienced, insightful, creative guide and master practitioner who knows whereof she speaks…  It’s a great resource for anyone who wants to apply guided imagery to their own issues, struggles and questions.”
—Belleruth Naparstek, author of Staying Well with Guided Imagery

“She is a moving storyteller whose deeply spiritual approach is balanced by her sense of pragmatism and humor.”
—Martin L. Rossman, MD, author of Fighting Cancer from Within

“Like icebergs floating in the sea — only partially visible to others and ourselves — a good part of what goes on in us lies beneath awareness... This book can help you make those connections, offering relief from the stresses and conflicts of living.”
—Thomas Moore, author of Care of the Soul : A Guide for Cultivating Depth and Sacredness in Everyday Life

"Leslie Davenport’s work … provide(s) a healing a transformative journey for anyone who is open to self-discovery and initiating positive and empowering change in their lives. Davenport’s work is insightful, original and eminently useful for people of all ages and professions.”
—Angeles Arrien, author of The Second Half of Life

"Leslie Davenport brings compassionate insight in guiding people to explore the potential openings for living life with greater depth and meaning."
—William B Stewart, M.D., author of Deep Medicine

"Leslie Davenport is an inspiring therapist and healer, with a depth to her work that makes her an alchemist of the heart. She brings a compassionate presence into her work which elicits clarity and insight that leads to true transformation."
—Dennis Kenny, author of Promise of the Soul

"It is one of the best written self-facilitated, self-help books I've seen in a while: easy but profound worksheets walk you through your own process, case studies demonstrate how the process can work, the guided imagery really does guide you, and the author's heart- based wisdom comforts as if she were standing right by you the entire time." 
—Julie Clayton, Editor, New Consciousness Review

From the Publisher

A guide to healing from trauma and crisis though the transformative potential of creative visualization techniques. * The field of guided imagery is enjoying a renaissance in a variety of conventional medicine settings. * Includes a self-facilitation worksheet with step-by-step instructions for undirected, unscripted guided imagery.

Angel of Promise

Leslie Davenport has created a work of art that outlines various forms of healing utilized throughout the world. She guides you through the process of self healing through guided imagery leaving you feeling very good about yourself. It is a powerful tool for those in need of developing their self-esteem and self-worth.

Each chapter gives you another way to look at the world through the experiences and insights of those who have encountered peace within the world no matter what is going on around them. There is no way around stress, but you can find a path through it inside your being by remembering who you are. This book takes you on a journey into the heart and soul of healing care. It is centered in the hearts of those willing to reach deep within themselves and uncover what appears to have been lost - their soul.

After being diagnosed with a brain tumor, I turned heavily to guided imagery both before, to prepare for the surgery, and after, for healing. However, after a period, the healing slowed and improvements came slowly. Then I obtained this book to search deeper inside myself for additional healing techniques. Wow. This book has provided me with so many additional tools and continued my healing. I am now 1 1/2 years post surgery. My doctors tell me I am the poster child for this type of tumor surgery. They have asked how I am managing to continue to improve, while others with similar surgeries are stalled. Guided Imagery is my recommendation to them and their patients. They are most impressed but I could not have accomplished what I have without this book. It's become my handbook to a fuller, richer life.

Format: Paperback
I am a SoulCollage® facilitator, and I also lead "Choosing to Walk on the Bright Side of the Road" workshops. Both of these workshops help women stay connected to themselves during difficult life situations, and I often use guided imagery in my work with them. This book is an amazing resource for me. It is helping me to deepen my own inner work, as well as giving me brilliant and very usable ideas to share with my workshop and retreat participants.

The guided imagery techniques shared in this book are easy to read, simple to follow and highly beneficial. Whether you are looking for a way to go more deeply into your own inner work, or leading others through this work, you will find this book an excellent resource.

Format: Paperback
Leslie Davenport's book "Healing and Transformation through Self-Guided Imagery" has given me new hope during a time of great challenge.

While I was in treatment for breast cancer treatment I saw Leslie for Guided Imagery. That was ten years ago. When treatment ended I found myself slowly sliding back into a hectic lifestyle and forgetting the tools that had helped me so profoundly while going through my health crisis.

From the beginning of chapter one Leslie's book grabbed me and reminded of the peace and serenity I had gained in the past. Now I have the tools to re-embrace guided imagery in a new way. I remind myself to take time for myself so I can develop more clarity and reclaim the serenity that I need during today's troubling times.

I will recommend this book to my friends and family... especially my aging parents. This book is not only a gift, it should be required reading. What could be more important than being in touch with our own desires and dreams? We can then find the answers to the deeper meaning in our own lives. This book is a gem.

This book is just what the doctor ordered - or maybe what the doctor should have ordered but didn't know about. Tell your doctor!

We live in times of great change and transformation, and sometimes it's hard to keep up. The body and the emotions often need help in order to be relaxed and to stay in the present moment. This book teaches us a variety of ways to do just that, and to heal from past traumas and attitudes that limit us.

I love the stories. It's moving and transformative to get a glimpse into just how powerful self-guided imagery is in the lives of individual people. Leslie's sensitive and perceptive portrait-painting with words makes them very real. And not only portraits of people, but of the world around us. She reminds us to love this world and live in it whole-heartedly, whole-mindedly, whole-bodily.

I'm recommending this book to friends and clients - I just did so this very day!

Format: Paperback
I had the pleasure of working with Leslie in therapy at a needed time in my life and guided imagery was a memorable part of our work together. It left a lasting impression on how powerfully enlightening and simple in process imagery can be. The book is a beautiful extension of Leslie's devoted work to guided imagery as a healing and transformative tool that anyone can participate in. She writes as if she is talking with you directly. I felt her comforting and compassionate presence through her words. She supports the reader with tools, and resources, and meaningful stories. Leslie is a believer in miracles and the book is a personal opportunity for anyone to experience that for themselves. I hope you will enjoy the gift of this book as much as I do.
