Uncommon H.O.P.E. is the first step on the path that is calling you to your highest self, and you could not have a better guide than one of the most formidable voices for human potential and planet Earth.

There is no shortage of spiritual guidance out there. But Kathleen isn’t about just giving information; she’s about living it. Her unwavering passion, energy and hope are uncommon indeed.

Alter Your Life Book Reviews
Themes like “I just don’t have time” and “I’m exhausted” rule our lives today. We are overbooked, overworked and overwhelmed. Just getting done what must be done fills our days. Dr. Kathleen Hall’s provides an alternative to the struggle to “make time” for renewal. In this breakthrough book, readers will discover how to overcome obstacles and learn how to integrate Mindful Living into every facet of your life.

Dr. Hall’s book, Alter Your Life, teaches you how to maximize the simple moments in your life to be the most rewarding. You can develop your own unique personal practices that can help you return “home to our true selves.” Mindful Living will restore your mental, physical and spiritual well-being. Alter Your Life, Overbooked? Overworked? Overwhelmed? offers tools to help us find our own unique choices that will bring greater balance and happiness to your demanding life.
Aristotle’s famous work, the Nicomachean Ethics, was written to provide us with a blueprint for living “a life worth living.” I suspect that Aristotle, if he were living today, would also approve of her work; he was, after all, that most practical and commonsensical of philosophers. His Ethics was a manual on how to put together a “good life” through the practice of the virtues; hers (Dr. Hall’s) is a manual on how to deal with the stresses of this contemporary world or, if you will, how to live a “good life” through the practice of intentional living in spite of the stresses surrounding us. I think Aristotle and Dr. Hall would have gotten along famously.

Alter Your Life is not your regular self-help inspirational book. It is practical, engaging and powerfully life-changing. Unlike other self-help books that focus on the goals you’d like to create for your life, Dr. Hall provides a different angle of everyday activities, so you’d be able to alter your perspectives, which are the key of lifetime joy and happiness.

A Life in Balance Book Reviews
This book quite literally changed my life. I laughed, I cried, I pondered and reflected. I have even been inspired to write articles based on some of Dr. Kathleen Hall’s teachings, and I have referenced her in the articles. If you suffer from depression, anxiety, or generally feel overwhelmed…this book will make you look at life in a different light. Thank you Dr. Kathleen Hall for helping to change my life in a most positive way. This book is priceless and timeless.

One of the better self-help books that I have read, it includes sections on Happiness and Health, Seasons of Your Life, Focusing Inward for Happiness, Stress and Stress Busting, Poisons that Kill the Roots of Your Happiness (fear, anger, hate, pessimism, apathy, greed, etc.), Establishing Serenity, Exercise and it’s Gift to Your Body and Spirit, Love and Intimacy, and Nourishment. It is all about Mindful Living with purpose and balance.

A Life in Balance is an easy-to-read, optimistic manual-which balances personal anecdotes, brief summaries of scientific research, spiritual pep talks and simple checklists-often states the obvious. We’re stressed out and we live in fear. Hall conveys credibility and sincerity as an adviser. Her work is lucid, sincere and comprehensive.

Mindful Living Everyday Book Reviews
Kathleen Hall found great success in her life but had yet to identify a real purpose and meaning to it: her survey of relationships between mind, body and spirit results in a guide which blends in teachings from the world’s great spiritual thinkers with insights on health and lasting happiness. Chapters discuss how to create and foster calm and serenity in daily life, use exercise to restore health and energy, and understand the impact of food choices on mental and physical well-being.
