What if your heart stops dancing?
Brian, his wife Christine and their 14 year-old daughter, Savanna, are a typical American family. Their lives begin to unravel when a dark secret from their past threatens to destroy them. Divorce seems imminent unless they discover a miracle.
Savanna refuses to stand by and watch her family self-destruct. A mysterious young woman and her dog show Savanna how to look past the physical and see the spiritual side of her situation. A leap of faith and willingness to change her perspective gives Savanna a new view of her life, her values and her purpose.
But can the adults give up their stories about the past that are tearing them apart?
Brimming with inspiration, transformation and empowering messages, “Heart Dancing” is life changing. It also introduces the 4 step process called Story Alchemy, which is used to transform the stories that threaten the Hartt’s peace and happiness.
As you cheer on the individual choices made by Brian, Christine and Savanna Hartt, you will also reflect on your own stories that keep you playing small.
Heart Dancing – It’s the Only Way to Live!
I have to be honest here. I really am not sure what my thoughts are! (Remember, I don’t read what a book is about before picking it up so I wasn’t quite sure what this book was about.)
I started the book following a teenager who’s father just announced he was leaving. Okay. Got it. Been there, done that. Not sure what to expect, but okay.
We followed this teenager and slowly got into a lot of “God” stuff. Now, let me say; I do not consider myself a religious person. I am a spiritual person who believes there is a higher power, everything happens for a reason, spirit guides, etc.
All the “God” talk really turned me off and I was about to close the book, BUT, being that this was the second book in a row that was of the “God” content, I thought maybe there was a purpose for this and pushed on.
I have to say, I’m kind of glad I did.
I don’t feel it was religious. I felt that it was spiritual and while I am not 100% confident that I know everything that happened, I do feel like there were spirit guides that were guiding Savanna and her mother, Christine.
I felt the advice in the book was spot on.
If you can look past the “God” parts and deal with the spiritual part, this is a great book with fabulous advice.
