EARTH IS YOUR SWEET SPOT: LIVING BEAUTIFULLY, A WOMAN'S GUIDE is written by three generations of women who invite you to the work of your lifetime: transforming yourself and our world. This inspiring little book builds on the books of Eckhardt Tolle ("A New Earth") and Rhonda Byrne ("The Secret"). Authors Ellae Elinwood, Mary Lanier, and Katie Garland-Noble gently guide the women of the world to connect to their ultimate source of balance and renewal: Mother Earth. By connecting to Earth, remembering and appreciating her, each woman can activate her highest potential, and enjoy a more balanced life. The book invites each woman to help heal the Earth in her own unique way, and to intentionally choose to be a creative female leader in her own personal sphere of influence.

EARTH IS YOUR SWEET SPOT provides inspiration through the authors' rich language and practical advise in the form of exercises for visualizations, breathing, Qi Gong movements, and other easy-to-implement actions for personal growth.

EARTH IS YOUR SWEET SPOT is a delicate guide, inviting each woman to "align herself with Earth's resonance . . . to be an alchemist who takes the raw material of youth, and weaves it into the gold of ongoing maturity." (excerpt from Earth is Your Sweet Spot: Living Beautifully, a Woman's Guide)
