As host of #JournalChat Live for all things journaling on Twitter, I had the delight of being introduced to the author of the book, Full Cup, Thirsty Spirit, Karen Horneffer-Ginter through her blog post, How Writing Saved My Weary, Pushed-to-the-Edge, New Mother's Soul, of which was chosen for #JournalChat Pick of the Week! It became the journaling resource for the next session of #JournalChat Live with our topic, Your Journaling: Your Life Lens (in November, 2012).
As a result of connecting with Karen and her fabulous post, I was invited and delighted to join in celebrating the recent release of her terrific book, Full Cup, Thirsty Spirit, which I find to be insightful, thought-provoking and refreshing, not to mention practical, helpful and revealing. I just love some of the visual exercises she provides in several places throughout the book to make activating awareness of our thirstiness more effective. She also provides what I refer to as "refreshing" activities to help alleviate our dryness.
Below you will find a terrific introduction to Karen and her book so you can get to know her a bit better and understand her purpose in writing it. I'm so glad she did.
In Full Cup, Thirsty Spirit, psychologist Karen Horneffer-Ginter helps us understand that life’s busyness—even good busyness—can create a disconnect between our outer life and our inner self, preventing us from experiencing joy and hearing our own wisdom about what needs priority in our life.
Now, here are a set of Q&As Karen has provided that cover the subject of the book title, her inspiring goals, about her book's Shift focus, why she recommends a quiet tuning-in time, plus more!
