PRLog - March 3, 2014 - LOS ANGELES -- In her new book “Gifts of Gratitude,” Elizabeth Baker celebrates life: yours and hers, with this collection of deeply stirring stories. Within the covers of Gifts of Gratitude – The Joyful Adventures of a Life Well Lived, Elizabeth narrates a series of inspiring experiences in turns both purposeful and ungoverned. At times tender and dramatic, always moving, outside the box, in search of veracity.
Gifts of Gratitude, ELIZABETH GAYLYNN BAKER
In the paradox of our world, many great minds, from scientists to spiritual teachers have suggested that we must change our way of being, to resolve the spirit of competition and foster community if we want to survive as a species. Throughout her journey, mentored by mystical teachers, great scientists, spiritual leaders, and even celebrities, Elizabeth has traveled as a beacon on that path. http://www.bakertruestories.com
