After enduring years of routine in our daily lives, we can feel empty and even without meaning. And besides feeling like meaning has been lost, we may even experience personal tragedies that can turn our lives upside down; causing us to struggle with pain, loss, guilt, doubt, and fear. So what do we do when inner peace is gone and we need to rekindle our purpose and our passion? Still Mind—Awakened Heart is a collection of reflections and related mantras that describe author Laurien C. Hamilton’s own personal journey of stepping away from living a life that was based in fear—and courageously stepping into a life energized by her own growth and healing. Week after week, as she slowly awakened, her passions and purpose became clearer. Clarity came not without some cost, and many barriers presented themselves to her along the way. Yet she persevered.
