Can I tell you how excited this human was when news of this book's launch popped up on my radar? The Soul Searcher's Handbook is a book that I wish I could time travel with to bring to 15 year old me for guidance and light and smiles. Emma Mildon's style is perfect to bring all of this important info to the masses in a truly accessible way. I have done my fair share of digging into some pretty woo-woo topics; her style of exploring and sharing the basics (and more) is just right.
Written like a dear best friend, Mildon's tone isn't too serious, which helps to keep things light and breezy when talking about life changing stuff. While some people may roll their eyes at some of the topics in this book, Mildon's style allows for exploration in exactly the right way: take what you need and leave the rest. In the world of personal development, spiritual gangsters like Mildon are so needed to share this on all levels to all audiences. Not taking oneself too seriously drew me in, and the prioritization of topics (highlighted "explore this" and the "woo-woo scale" and "explore-it scale") made it a lot more fun and easy to digest. Everyone in the wellness world knows how important digestion is!
Just pulling this book out to begin the review process made me want to dig into it all over again, which really speaks to the style and content. It is a resource. When you read it for the first time, certain tools may really be just right for you in that moment. It is a book that is not only worth reading once, but worth keeping on the shelf for future reference. I fully plan to dig back in to see what strikes me this round! These tools don't expire, and this book gives a great overview to begin the exploration of something new or to remind you of an old favorite.
