REVIEW OF THE WAY TO STILLNESS BY A. ALEXANDER VINCENT & G.ALEXANDER
Gayle Alexander looks back over a fifty-year career as a master counselor, gifted teacher, and minister. Gayle and her daughter, Anne, share her unique approach to connecting with others at a deep level, offering a practical guide that anyone might use as a manual on their spiritual journey. This approach has come to be known the world over as the Love Motif. Full of rich insight, and profound, inspiring life lessons gleaned from fifty years of private practice and being a companion on the way to thousands of individuals, Alexander offers powerful tools to a new generation of helpers. It is her hope that educators, clergy members, physicians, clinicians, therapists, counselors, and anyone involved in the mentoring process find their own Way to Stillness and pass it on.
The way to stillness is a beautifully written book about a woman’s journey to peace and happiness. Since I work in the medical profession, I can use the information presented in my everyday practice. The author has some wonderful photos of nature and objects that adds a special touch to the book. I loved the story about Mike. He was legally blind and everyone around him had given up on him and thought he could never read. He loved anything mechanical. The author introduced him to an engineer and he allowed Mike to touch the equipment. Mike began to blossom. Mike graduated High School and the author said that she used the “Love Motif” with Mike. The Love Motif is a desire to impact another person’s life in a positive way. I have learned a lot about myself and other people by reading the book. So what is stillness? It is the ability to find inner peace and have the ability to instill that in everyone we meet. I recommend this book to everyone who wants a little peace in their life and wants to help others achieve stillness.
