Embracing the true self, our inner soul of heart and emotion3. Uniting with the higher self, our divine natureShowing Up introduces an approach to personal transformation, which reflects the unusual skills and broad spiritual knowledge of its authors: a trial attorney with years of experience in corporate litigation, and a holistic healer who coaches executives in the high tech industry.Stratton Horres and Michala Perreault have studied and applied an extensive range of spiritual practice, traveled around the world to seek out wise teachers and experience holy places, then constructed their own original method for Showing Up, for engaging in every moment of our every day life at home or at work with spiritual power and integrity.The book is filled with original exercises, affirmations and meditations that the authors have developed in their extensive trainings and workshops. Their Showing Up Deposition, and Tree of Life exercise, their original application of ancient models like the Egyptian temples, the Inca Medicine Wheel, and the Four Noble Truths of Tibet - all contribute to a highly useful and ultimately inspiring approach to spiritual renewal in our sense of our selves, our relationships and our productive participation in the real world.Showing Up takes every reader on a revealing process of self-discovery. Its both an introduction to profound lessons from ancient cultures and a very contemporary call to action. It confronts the specific issues of alienation and dissatisfaction -- the basic existential malaise of modern life - in a manner which is uplifting and proactive, kindly but firmly teaching each of us to take responsibility for our lives and know joy in the fulfillment of its moment-to-moment experience.
