You Are Enough: Revealing the Soul to Discover Your Power, Potential, and Possibility

Panache Desai. HarperOne, $24.99 (256p) ISBN 978-0-06-293257-0

Desai (Discovering Your Soul Signature), a speaker on spirituality, promises readers that they “are nothing less than a spark of Divine Light, which animates everyone and everything” in this uplifting work. According to Desai, one can achieve samadhi, the “recognition of our Essential Self,” not through external practices—such as meditation, yoga, or diet and exercise programs—but by turning inward. When one cultivates “awareness, acceptance, and compassion” for oneself, he writes, it is possible to activate a “powerful internal process” of “vibrational transformation” that harmonizes the “dissonant vibration” of negative emotions and experiences. Each chapter teaches readers to achieve their “optimal vibrational state” by cultivating awareness of “conditioning and wounding,” learning acceptance and flexibility, and adhering to five commitments that foster “expansion.” The author’s forthright sincerity and candid examples of his own personal transformation and the effect his work has had on others provide ballast to what might otherwise read as esoteric mysticism. With its focus on sitting “in awareness of feelings,” Desai’s cheery spiritual how-to will appeal to readers of Deepak Chopra. (Mar.)
