TITLE: “Gifts of Gratitude, The Joyful Adventure of a Life Well Lived”
Elizabeth Baker celebrates life: yours and hers, with this collection of deeply stirring stories. Within the covers of Gifts of Gratitude – The Joyful Adventures of a Life Well Lived, She narrates a series of inspiring experiences in turns both purposeful and ungoverned. At times tender and dramatic, always moving, outside the box, in search of veracity.
In the paradox of our world, many great minds, from scientists to spiritual teachers have suggested that we must change our way of being, to resolve the spirit of competition and foster community if we want to survive as a species.
Throughout her journey, mentored by mystical teachers, great scientists, spiritual leaders, and even celebrities, Elizabeth has traveled as a beacon on that path.
A not-to-be-missed that hits the core of what everyone’s search for a true way, their own way, to realize the gifts of a heart open and renewed by life.
