We are all, every single one of us, heroes. We are all on what Joseph Campbell calls a hero s journey; we are all on a mission to step into our true nature and fulfill the assignment our souls were sent to Earth to fulfill. Navigating the hero s journey, Lissa Rankin, MD, argues, is one of the cornerstones of living a meaningful, authentic, healthy life.
In clear, engaging prose, Lissa describes her entire spiritual journey for the first time--beginning with what she calls her perfect storm of events--and recounts the many transformative experiences that led to a profound awakening of her soul. Through her father s death, her daughter s birth, career victories and failures, and an ongoing struggle to identify as both a doctor and a healer, Lissa discovers a powerful self-awareness.
As she shares her story, she encourages you to find out where you are on your own journey, offering inspiring guideposts and practices along the way. With compelling lessons on trusting intuition, surrendering to love, and learning to see adversity as an opportunity for soul growth, "The Anatomy of a Calling "invites you to make a powerful shift in consciousness and reach your highest destiny."

Unsatisfied with the emotional distance required in her job, Rankin leaves traditional medicine and starts down a variety of healing paths (for herself and in the service of others), precipitated by the death of her father, the birth of her daughter, and a health emergency involving her brother. Rankin shares specific methods for learning to home in on ones inner hero through mediation and introspective thinking. Readers who seek more information and methodology regarding mind/body healing and health through diverse spiritual practices will find Rankins story fascinating. Rankin speaks from her heart throughout this telling memoir of spiritual discovery and deliberate step-by-step decisions. (Dec.)
