“MIGRATION TO THE HEARTLAND is a very powerful text drawing on a lifetime of observation and wisdom gained by the author as she constantly puts herself on the line to learn the hard/heart lessons.. , it is the personality, energy, strength and unique vision of Christie and Rose Diamond that really leaps from the pages and pulls us into a book which is very difficult to put down - even after several readings of the text.” Cath Dunsford, Dunsford Publishing Consultants. This blend of story-telling and biography is a book about transitions. The story begins in 1988 amidst questions I was asking about how, and where, to find peace and love in my life. I was working as an educator and psychotherapist and knew I couldn't help others find happiness if I didn't know how to find it myself. I had been graced by the Goddess of Poetry - the erotic, fiercely demanding, fiery source of inspiration, which takes us beneath the surface of life and points us towards the possible and when she disappeared from my life, I was inconsolable. The emptiness at the heart of my personal and professional life, and a deep malaise in the cultural and political environment, were catalysts for the decision I made to follow my creative process wherever it led me. The call to the soul journey was so strong I could not resist even though I was often confused, afraid and at times even questioned my sanity. Migration to the Heartland began as a means of recording and understanding my experience of living at this time of global chaos and transition and helped me to delve beneath the personality’s stories of how I thought things were, to reach deeper truths. With growing excitement, I came to realise although the details of my journey were unique to me, the process unfolding in my life was a theme of our time, shared by many. We are being called to the inner journey in our millions, all around the world; for it is only the deep wisdom of our hearts and souls that can balance the dangers of our global situation and lead us to peace and unity. When it was first published in 2005, Migration to the Heartland struck a chord with people on their soul journeys around the world. This revised edition with additional prologue, epilogue, glossary and resource section, is now available in e-book form.
