The Inner Connection: A Spiritual Journey of Self-Discovery and Emotional Freedom, One Day at a Time

Darlene Dawn. Balboa, $17.99 trade paper (268p) ISBN 978-1-5043-3799-1
In her debut, Dawn lays out a singular plan for readers wishing to stimulate spiritual growth. “We are one with God” is the message she often repeats while explaining how her spiritual journey began with her desire to become sober. Inspired by the teachings in Helen Schucman’s bestselling A Course in Miracles, Dawn sets out to divulge everything she has learned on her path to spiritual enrichment. Divided into 13 chapters composed of lectures primarily focused on befriending the ego or practicing blind faith, the book provides readers with an exorbitant amount of material that can be unwieldy and overwhelming at times. While much of what is written will seem rudimentary to seasoned readers of New Age and more esoteric interpretations of spirituality, Dawn’s teachings on common sayings such as “all events are neutral,” “everything happens for a reason,” and “all experiences can be valuable” feel fresh in her hands. Believing that spirituality is something that should be practiced as well as studied, she lays out lists of tools to help readers: meditation, yoga, writing, and music. Written from a place of deep humility, Dawn's book, though not groundbreaking, will benefit those searching for a path to spiritual betterment. (BookLife)
