Do you know what it means to be alive?
Justina writes as JM Hurley and Dance with Life was her first book. For readers craving a more accessible, practical and experiential approach to inner peace, Dance with Life, is ideal. It invites the reader into the heart of the protagonist, Mira, as she is taken on an inner journey to explore the very nature of what it means to be alive. There are hundreds of books published in the spiritual growth/self-development area but very few that talk about what it actually feels like to directly experience inner peace.
This book has all the right ingredients! Practical application, a healthy dose of science and just the right amount of magic and beauty to keep that left brain/ right brain balance flowing in tandem all the way through.
About the book…
Have you ever asked yourself if there’s more to life than this? Have you thought – ‘But I’m busy…I have a career, a family, a social life and all that inner peace stuff looks so time consuming. And surely it means trekking to off-beat locations?’ Well it doesn’t! Inner peace is a lot more simple than you think.
It’s hard to describe though and harder still to explain. However, having read hundreds of ‘spiritual books’ I never felt that I found one that really showed what it felt like to experience the inner journey. So that’s what I tried to do in Dance with Life.
Dance with Life is a short novel and though all it describes is true, to make it more understandable for the reader, it’s written in a fictionalised format. In this book – and I’ll quote from the blurb here – “the main character Mira explores the realm of the heart under the practiced eye of a life-changing teacher. Her journey is within, she doesn’t even have to leave her front room! Travel with her and you might find that you’ll never look at life in quite the same way again.”
Like Coelho’s The Alchemist or Gibran’s The Prophet, Dance with Life is a book that changes lives. Here’s what others have to say about Dance with Life:
“If you liked Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet, you’ll love Dance with Life.” D.H.
“Inspiration, wisdom, common sense. This curious book truly nourishes the heart. I want more, more, more!” C.B.
“Sometimes on one’s own personal journey there is a sense of aloneness and perhaps that is why we are drawn to such books – to know that we are not alone and that there is a personal journey that each of us must make – ‘Each soul carves its own path’; (JM Hurley). It is a long time since a book touched me so deeply. I think ‘The Prophet’ by Kahlil Gibran may have been the last time and that was in 1986! Other books speak to us but this one knows”.
“I do a chapter or “act” every night. On the surface it appears like a light and simple book, but I feel I will have to read it a second time to really absorb it. Reading it put me in mind of some of the writings of Deepak Chopra.”
“I want to thank you for the deep inspiration I have received from Dance with Life. It’s a wonderful gift and teaching on listening to the call of our life to wake up and be in Love . Thank you and well done for transmitting the teachings so beautifully. You’re an inspiration to life!!!!”
“I wish this book did not end. Please write more! Magical, masterful, truly brilliant.”
“This is a wonderful book.”
“I wasn’t sure what I would think of this book – I got it as a gift – but I loved it and found it surprising and challenging.”
“Beautifully written & inspiring”
“Just to let you know that as our relative was dying the only thing he read over and over in the last six weeks was Dance with Life. It seemed to really bring him peace”
