Absolutely superb fusion of experience and tutoring in higher spiritual states,
This review is from: At Your Heart's Pace: An Offering of Essential Spiritual Exercises (Paperback)
The problem with spiritual books is either they lack practical application or they lack the inspirational heart that only comes from someone who has experienced that which they speak about. Ellen Sutherland's new book simply and beautifully resolves both issues in a very unusual and original way.
Instead of opting simply for a workbook with, say, an inspirational story to make it pretty, Ellen has created a nondual fusion of practice and experience. She has taken the great contemplative traditions of today - A Course In Miracles, David Hawkins work on devotional nonduality, Emotional Freedom Technique - and recontextualized them in terms of practical ways of experiencing the truth of these teachings. Instead of interpolating her own personality, the reader immediately feels a non-personal caringness and lovingness supports the words with a sort of energy.
To get a feel for the power behind her words I recommend you visit (...) and listen to her voice. She sounds so serene.
I highly recommend this book to those who are tired of reading about spirituality, frustrated with conventional piety of religion, and want to experience the truth for themselves in themselves. Ellen's course of exercises is nothing short of transformative. I am very grateful to her for her work.
The book does not simply borrow from other traditions. It represents personal practice and mentoring of others over many years. I have benefitted from her earlier work as a spiritual tutor, and this book represents a new level of clarity and experiential access that sets it apart from the spiritual traditions of ACIM and Hawkins.
