Book Review & Giveaway: Full Cup, Thirsty Spirit

DenaJanuary 14, 2013

Today, I am so excited to share Karen Horneffer-Ginter’s new book, Full Cup, Thirsty Spirit: Nourishing the Soul When Life’s Just Too Much.Full Cup, Thirsty Spirit

We live in a world of constant movement, and our day-to-day lives seem to get busier by the hour. Our days are full of information, full of obligations, full of friends and family, full of everything… except fulfillment. And rushing has become a national epidemic. Even when we’re rushing to and from the good stuff—like a rewarding job with wonderful colleagues or quality time spent with loved ones—we can still end up feeling drained and exhausted, overwhelmed by the sheer volume of life.

In Full Cup, Thirsty Spirit, psychologist Karen Horneffer-Ginter helps you understand that it is this volume, this busyness, that creates a disconnect between your outer life and your inner self. This separation can cause your soul to wilt, preventing you from experiencing joy and hearing your own wisdom about what needs priority in your life.

With an elegant narrative voice that inspires both laughter and compassion, Horneffer-Ginter shows you how to live a fuller life rather than simply filling your time. She focuses on six shifts to make in your daily life—teaching you to honor your rhythms, turn within, fill up, fully inhabit your days, remember lightness, and embrace difficulty.

Through a weave of personal stories, client experiences, and practical exercises, she shows you how to find balance in the swirl of daily life, so you can reconnect with what matters most. | separator

    Reconnecting with what matters most is exactly what I need to do… I love that there are practical exercises to achieve this included in the book too. Looks like a great read! Thanks for the opportunity Dena! Stay Beautiful. xoxo

    I’ve learned this lesson the hard way! I’m much more careful about what I commit myself to these days. Admittedly, my husband helps me not overfill my cup. 🙂

    Crud. I meant to thank you for being on the tour, but I was so caught up in thinking about your review that I totally forgot! So, thanks for being on the tour!
