A unique and inspirational journey of beauty and self-discovery obtained by overcoming adversity.
The pearl is a spiritual teacher and a living legacy of the human experience. We are all subjected to adversities and irritations, loss and anguish. We may encounter failure, death, divorce and disease. But, like the oyster, we can learn to recognise and embrace the transformational opportunities these experiences present.
In this book, Mary Olsen Kelly celebrates the pearl as a metaphor for our own lives. She invites the reader to assess life through the same six criteria used by jewellers for grading pearls - shape, size, colour, lustre, orient and perfection.
With reflective questions at the end of each chapter, 'The Path Of The Pearl' offers a new way of recognising and embracing our whole, often imperfect, self and of discovering ways in which obstacles can open up new areas of knowledge.
Mary Olsen Kelly's unique insights inspire the reader to become deeper and wiser human beings, using adversities as the building blocks of an ever more satisfying life journey.
