Dreaming of a Divine Life

Dreaming of a Divine Life is an amazing memoir from Joanne Lee Philpot.

The book commences with the dream of a yoga teacher's dream of making a retreat in the countryside of Italy.

But it soon becomes much more than that when Joanne sees it transformed into a journey of self-realisation and self-discovery.

Joanne realised that if she took the time and made the effort to see the positive in all experiences, including the negative experiences, and learning to be more of a giver than a taker, by seeking out and learning the truth about relationships and "choosing  love over fear and by learning to feel good and cultivate compassion for others, I hope that my readers will relate to my difficult experiences," Joanne said, in regards to the purposes behind writing her book.

Her dream turned inot a bit of a nightmare, to be honest. The dream of a wonderful yoga retreat in the Italian countryside turned out to be an uncompleted house in the hills in which she found herself struggling to raise her four kids!

But she became aware that sometimes a travail or a problem may, in reality, be a blessing in disguise and a moment that we can learn from and use the4 experience to grow spiritually.

It's a book of interesting spiritual concepts but it is in no way preachy or overwritten so will be a useful book for everyone who wants to learn about the yogic way of life.

It's published by Matador at £9.99 and will make an ideal present this Christmas. You can order it here
