A painless a treatment of the subject of de-cluttering as a clutterholic could wish for. Instead of feeling shamed and chastised by the book, I felt understood, nurtured and empowered.
Supportive... Practical... Vogt shows how cleaning the living room can help clear the mind. Emphasizing the process [that] uses small steps and honors emotions... real growth can take place in a peaceful, balanced fashion. --Kirkus Discoveries
Never before did I view external clutter as a pathway to internal growth, as stuck energy, and as something that was separating me from my true essence. Before you tackle another closet, read this book! -Susan Page, best-selling author, Oprah guest
This book is for everyone, whether you are pack rat or neat as a pin. I actually had many "a-ha" moments. I see now how clutter can really hold you back and I like how this book explains how to change it --Stacie Vaughan, Simply Stacie Blog --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From the Author
In 1996 I walked away from teaching at one of Boston's preeminent schools at the height of a twenty-year career. I was at the top of my game, and burned out. I didn't know what I loved anymore, or who I was.
By releasing a huge part of my personal and professional identity, I was able to get in touch with the things that made my heart sing (and cringe): my passions, my longings, my fears... my clutter! For the super-organized neatnik that I am, this last revelation came down like a sledge-hammer to my self-concept and world-view.
I needed to re-discover what I had long forgotten: that creating beautiful home spaces that feel good and nourish people has always been my greatest joy. Intrigued by the larger questions of how our living spaces reflect us, affect us, and support us, I discovered and pursued a more intuitive branch of feng shui (and little-known field at the time) called space clearing. That was fifteen years ago, and I've been evolving with it ever since through teaching, writing, and practice in living in present time.
Turns out I didn't need to go on a pilgrimage or meditate on a mountaintop to find myself. My home became my temple, my clutter was my teacher, and my journey of self-discovery began with clearing out a single drawer. Years in the making, Your Spacious Self has taken as long to write as it took to decode and embrace my own slippery relationship with my stuff and stress, and discover why most well-intentioned clearing practices do not last.
I wanted to write a book that cuts through the noise and charms that part of the mind that is spinning out of control somewhere in "overwhelm La-La land"; a book that creates the tiniest peephole of quiet, yummy spaciousness that not only expands with our awareness, but can be felt - at the deepest level; a book that delivers a palpable experience of ease in one minute flat. Your Spacious Self is that book.
Whether you are a super-organized neatnik, a hopeless clutterbug, a nonstop multitasker, a cautious beginner, an experienced professional, or a curious bystander, welcome! This book is for you.
