Hidden Wonders of the Human Heart

How to See Through your Sorrow

by

Hidden Wonders of the Human Heart is a moving testament to ways of seeing which reveal the tender wisdom that stirs in our hearts in times of change and sorrow. Drawing on eight true stories of revelation and renewal from her psychotherapy practice, Susan Holliday invites us to see the ecology of our hearts as a vital realm alive with the possibility of new beginnings.

The cultivation of insight has never been more urgent. We live in a world awash with glances, swipes and clicks. The intimate truth of our hearts is increasingly veiled behind categories and labels that merely codify how we feel. If we are to appreciate the wonders at play in the depths of our human nature, we need to learn how to see ourselves through a more creative vision.

Weaving compelling storytelling with insight from poets, artists and musicians, Hidden Wonders of the Human Heart takes its place alongside popular nonfiction titles that explore how we can enrich everyday experience, by listening, feeling and seeing more deeply.

'A stunningly written and deeply interesting book about wonder as a source of inner revelation.'
