I was pretty sure I read this earlier than 1991, but I see from the list that there is a mix up in author names, so I went with the Hazelton entry. This was a book I read every morning for 2 years. I journalled from it. It was part of my journey toward emotional and spiritual wholeness.

The problem with sharing a partial list of what I have read over the years is that I want to go back and reread them and I will never have the time, but this book I pick up every once in a while just to remind mys
Hi Jessie, Starting today, Goodreads will no longer support the “# of times read” field for each review. In most cases, the team appended the information in the “# of times read” field to the private notes section of your review.

I have bought a copy for my mom... it's just that good. I de ...more

I have had this book for years! Sometimes I'm great about reading it - other times I forget. The meditations never get old and I continue to learn from this book.

Pretty good meditation book for women of all ages. I personally like the specific AA and NA meditation books, but this one is a close favorite!
