In this day and age, it can sometimes be a challenge to find honest and truthful inspiration. We believe we have found this in a truly special book. "Journey to the Heart"  is a favourite here at Yoga West, loved and used by teachers and students alike.


Intended to be used as a daily guide through life, these 365 insightful and warm daily reflections can be used to help expand our creativity, embrace our powers, and open our hearts. Melody Beattie writes with such warmth, honesty, and compassion and is open to sharing her stories and lessons learnt through some of her darkest and lighter days. These short, daily messages will bring comfort and inspire you to discover your true purpose in the world and learn to connect even more deeply with yourself, the creative force, and the magic and mystery in the world around and within us.

It is a book that you will reach for over and over again over the years and is the perfect way to take a few minutes each day for your own self-reflection and self-care, opening you to the possibility of wonder and joy in your life, even on the most challenging of days.

“Each moment of each day in our lives is a valuable turning point—an important part of our spiritual growth, an important scene in the movie of our lives. Each feeling is important: boredom, fear, hate, love, despair, excitement. Each action we take has value: an act of love, an act of healing. Each word we speak, each word we hear, each scene we allow ourselves to see, and each scenario we participate in changes us. Trust and value each moment of your life. Let it be important. It is a turning point. It is a spiritual experience.”

Journey to the Heart by Melody Beattie is available in the Yoga West shop.
