This is such an excellent and inspiring book, I think many people, possibly everyone, would benefit from it, and that’s not something I often find myself moved to say. The reason it works so well is that you can come to it from a place of any, or no belief and still apply the ideas. In essence this is about pragmatic approaches to life, a rational, thinking, feeling, engaging, intuitive way of being that can be related to most traditions. It won’t sit well alongside a practice of self denial and ...more

Thorn's perceptive insight into personal growth and development and spiritual questing is the most profound I have come across in 25 years of soul work.

The honesty and strength she exudes in her writing is tempered with compassion and faith. It is as if the entire book is a personal coaching session. The transparency of her own process encourages and inspires.
The combination of inner and outer work supports the integration of the whole person.

I loved her first two books and this is another tha

"What is your desire ?" This is one of the most revolutionary question one has to ask. Thorn proposes to explore Desire through the four traditional powers of the Sphinx, and a fifth she adds : to Manifest. This book is the most accessible of Thorn's books, adaptable to all systems of beliefs, to all paradigms, but it is also one of the most revolutionary work to undertake.

I love T. Thorn Coyle. I love her blogging, I love her Facebook, I love her activism, and mostly I love how Evolutionary Witchcraft changed how I saw my Pagan beliefs and how I applied them to my every day life.

This book, though! The read is so jumpy and thick. I think it might have worked better formatted as a text book with lessons, quizzes, and flow charts. Her thoughts are tangled and circular and I often found mysel

This is pretty much a typical self-help book. It has a few good suggestions, but I was expecting more of a magical slant.

This book is a useful guide for doing internal work and connecting with what you desire. The author provides exercises to help the reader work on him/herself, as well illustrating concepts with anecdotes. If you are someone who feels like you're out of touch with life or unhappy with the direction your life is going, pick this book up and do the exercises. You will certainly obtain clarity as a result and be better able to manifest what you truly want because you'll have worked out the internal ...more

I won this book from goodreads first reads. This book is basically a spiritual self-help book. It didn't really speak to me in any way. Sure she has some good points here and there but I'm not one who likes to be preached to and unless you don't mind preaching this book may not be for you. It is more a life style change.

As always T. Thorn Coyle dives deep into the Work. This time desire is explored in all it's part. How can we manifest our deepest desires. This book gives you all the tools to dive deep into your soul(s) and help you work towards living a true, full and meaningful life. The life that is yours!

I really enjoyed this book, writing many comments in the margins. When I finished it, my first thought was to re-read it.
