a truly wonderful book.

For me, this was a remarkable book. Gawain systematically explains all the principles of her philosophy and then applies them to all aspects of life, from relationships to money to health, relating them all together. I found her advice and guidance highly practical. This book is so accessible, no matter how much you have read about personal growth previously. Gawain is skilled in her ability to express ideas so clearly and directly, and she gives examples to aid the reader in understanding. Meditations are provided at the end of every chapter to help in your development aswell.
The most impressive thing about this book, however, is the loving and encoraging way in which it is written. Gawain acknowledges that life can be hard and that trying to teach oneself to be a more concious and feeling human being can be hard, but she makes difficulties seem more like exciting challenges.
Gawain tells in the book about how a reader described 'Living in the Light' as having been "a good friend to her" over the years. I simply can't put it better myself!
This book can be read and re-read a thousand times and each time you will find something new to understand... I never believed a book could change your life until I read this one!
