I’ve been waiting with anticipation for Elizabeth Murray’s next book. At last it’s arrived and like her previous creations, Monet’s Passion and Cultivating Sacred Space, her newest book, Living Life in Full Bloom is a visual, creative, and spiritual feast. The exploration of her four “personality attributes” and pathways, gardener, artist, love, and spirit-weaver…are pathways leading to beautiful creative and spiritual practices that are pure inspiration for the heart and creative spirit. There is deep wisdom on every page, and the lush and sumptuous images ignited my senses and set my imagination free to roam fresh and interesting inner landscapes.

One of my favorite sections, though there are so many choices for “favorite,” is the author’s offering of the practice of “Life-Mapping.” I was blessed a couple of years ago to be a participant for Elizabeth’s Life-Mapping Workshop. When I discovered she included this practice in her book I was ecstatic. It’s one of the most beneficial transformational tools I’ve ever encountered.

That’s what I love about this book! There’s an element of sweet surprise within each practice and the images enrich the read with colorful, meditative, blessing. I couldn’t wait to turn the page to see what I’d discover next. This is definitely a book that I will repeatedly open at random (as an oracle of inspiration and wisdom) to claim a daily feast for my spirit. It’s also a book I’ll be giving time and again as a gift. Elizabeth Murray has created an enduring treasure to be savored like delicious banquet, page by page. This is book I’ll keep within easy reach.

I was first captivated by Murray's work when I saw a number of her photographs displayed alongside Monet's paintings at the New York Botanical Garden and since then I've been a fan of her books, photography, and motivational speeches. Needless to say, I've been eager for the release of "Living Life in Full Bloom".

I'm pleased to say that my eagerness paid off and I was not left disappointed come the launch of the book. I found the four personality attributes covered in the book absolutely fascinating - Gardner, Artist, Love, and Spirit-Weaver. At times it was although Murray could have been writing to me personally as her words were so insightful. Her advice on how to make small changes in your life to fill your days with purpose, hope, and imagination was equally as insightful and of use to anyone, I'd imagine.

"May you walk your path with curiosity, delight, and intention" - was a line Murray wrote very early in the book, however I find it echoing in my mind throughout daily life. Murray's purpose in this book was to help me fulfill my purpose in life and remember who I was - something which she's definitely achieved.

Throughout the book you'll also find images of Murray's stunning photography, something which I considered to be the icing on the cake of this fantastic book. Having read Elizabeth Murray's other books, personally I thought this was her best one yet. In fact, to complement this book I would go for something by Barbara Ganim like Art and Healing because it goes into even greater depth on the therapeutic effect of artistic expression.

I ordered this book because the name and cover appealed to me.. it is a lovely, interesting collection of daily exercises and biographies. I read through it all for an overview ( and because it is so interesting) and then I re-read it, taking what I thought would be practical for me.. This is a 'fantasy' book.. taking you away from the busyness of our electronics and 'to do's', Although I am not a gardener, it spoke to my nature side.. . This inspired me to order her other two books on gardens as well.. the photos are gorgeous and Elizabeth is a spirit-filled woman who is well-traveled and well-learned in so many cultures.

That is a question we ask ourselves in our Menopause Goddess group - we've been meeting for 12 years come October. When this book came out, I knew we had to have it as a focus for our meeting this year. Most of us see the worst of Menopause in our rear view mirror and are now committed to creating a vibrant Second Act. With its delicious practices (more like guilty pleasures, as one reviewer remarked), we are excited to see where we will go and how Elizabeth Murray's book will enhance our becoming.

We will work on the practices from now until our October gathering - stay tuned for our review(s) then. I can tell you this - already I feel liberated and refreshed from the few practices I've dipped into. This book is just plain yummy - and a MUST for any midlife woman (or man).
