This is a great book! Very different from all of those superficial magazines that don't give you any real advice on living your life. 'Soul Searching' is well written, well researched, well organized, has cute drawings, and gives great advice. 'Soul Searching' has great variety in its subjects. Sarah Stillman talks about karma, philosophy, religion, creating sacred spaces, feng shui, aromatherapy, yoga and massaging, spa treatments, relaxing and meditating, visualization, journal writing, dream interpretation, hobbies/passions, etc. Any young girl can benefit from this refreshing book on how to find your soul.
This book is a rarity - one by a teenager who offers creative ideas for making sense of the joys and trials of adolescence. Sarah Stillman offers constructive tools and information to help teens make the most of this wonderful but sometimes confusing time in their lives. It is disturbing but telling that some would think a sixteen year old couldn't write a book like this. Underestimating the depth of adolescent personal development is an occupational hazard for adults and the reason this book by a teenager is so necessary. As a mother of three daughters this is a great way I can help them in their very personal but exciting journey to find themselves and set a positive pattern for personal growth throughout their lives.
Soul Searching is an awesome book! It has a lot of really helpfull advice for girls in it. I found it refreshing to read something that goes beyond make-up or boys. This book focuses on things that really matter, like coping with stress, keeping a journal, relaxing with yoga or meditation, developing your own philosophy, arometherapy, and interpreting your dreams. I particularly like the chapter on becoming a philosopher. It is really cool to get advice from someone who is my own age.
This book is a gem for teenage girls. So many of us are stressed out and need a release from their everyday life: cliques, school, continuous sporting activities, and the list goes on. This book was given to me as a present, but it was more than just a book, its the gift of relaxation, meditation, and a much more calm lifestyle. I reccomend this book for all teenage girls, its truly a book to live by.
I was given this book for my birthday last year and find myself returning to it constantly, loaning it to my friends, cousins, and even my mother. Written by a teenager, it applies to the feelings of girls today, and covers topics like meditation, yoga, aromatherapy, visualization, religion, philosophy, and following your passions. Instead of the normal "top ten beauty tricks" and "best clothes of the season," soul searching teaches females to find their inner beauty, and pamper their body instead of covering it with make-up.
