Description

We are all, every single one of us, heroes. We are all on what Joseph Campbell calls “a hero’s journey;” we are all on a mission to step into our true nature and fulfill the assignment our souls were sent to Earth to fulfill. Navigating the hero’s journey, Lissa Rankin, MD, argues, is one of the cornerstones of living a meaningful, authentic, healthy life.
In clear, engaging prose, Lissa describes her entire spiritual journey for the first time—beginning with what she calls her “perfect storm” of events—and recounts the many transformative experiences that led to a profound awakening of her soul. Through her father’s death, her daughter’s birth, career victories and failures, and an ongoing struggle to identify as both a doctor and a healer, Lissa discovers a powerful self-awareness.
As she shares her story, she encourages you to find out where you are on your own journey, offering inspiring guideposts and practices along the way. With compelling lessons on trusting intuition, surrendering to love, and learning to see adversity as an opportunity for soul growth, The Anatomy of a Calling invites you to make a powerful shift in consciousness and reach your highest destiny.

      • source: Charles Eisenstein, author of The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know Is Possible
      • content: "Poignant and powerful, this book works equally as a memoir and a self-help guide. Yet there is also an undefinable third thing within its covers. It isn't only a guide to the transition into one's calling. Potentially it is itself part of that transition, shifting reality for those who read it."

      • content: "If you combined Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat, Pray, Love, Cheryl Strayed's Wild, and James Redfield's The Celestine Prophecy, you'd get Lissa Rankin's The Anatomy of a Calling. Although this book is about Lissa and her story, you won't doubt for one minute that it's really about you and your story. Much more than a memoir, this is a road map for those on the spiritual path who sense that they're being called to fulfill a sacred mission. Loaded with nurturing comfort along with practical tools for navigating your hero's journey, this book will help you become a miracle worker at a time when we need miracles!"

        Rankin (Mind over Medicine), founder of the Whole Health Medicine Institute, shares her colorful and emotional journey of fighting the pressure to suppress feelings of grief, remorse, and sadness when dealing with her patients. Unsatisfied with the emotional distance required in her job, Rankin leaves traditional medicine and starts down a variety of healing paths (for herself and in the service of others), precipitated by the death of her father, the birth of her daughter, and a health emergency involving her brother. Rankin shares specific methods for learning to home in on one’s inner hero through mediation and introspective thinking. Readers who seek more information and methodology regarding mind/body healing and health through diverse spiritual practices will find Rankin’s story fascinating. Rankin speaks from her heart throughout this telling memoir of spiritual discovery and deliberate step-by-step decisions.
