How to awaken your true potential in
your personal and business life.

Dial A Guru series, book 1

Co-authored by An Coppens, Bettina Pickering, Elaine Rudnicki, Eva Tornallyay, Ildikó Miklós, Mala ShahRuby McGuire, Wendy Fry.

Edited by Dawn Campbell.

If you’ve been struggling to deal with an issue that is ultimately sabotaging you from enjoying the personal or professional life you deserve and desire, then this book has some practical solutions and valuable tools to help you become unstuck.

Foreword by Sam Thorpe

You may have heard the ancient African proverb “It takes a village to raise a child”. No man, woman or child is an island; we are social beings hard-wired for connection. We cannot get all that we need for growth and self-actualisation from one source.

There are many self-help books available for the seeker. Books about the struggles and plights of the individual, books about success and achievement. It is sometimes difficult to know where to start. This is where I consider Dawn Campbell to have ignited a spark of pure genius with her idea to facilitate the collaboration of a ‘village’ of inspirational experts in the field of personal growth.

I have ready many, many books and am a published author myself, but what has always been missing is a book that gives me a ‘village’ of like-minded souls. This book is the first collective inspiration in the ‘Dial a Guru’ series that addresses areas of personal pain and conflict with warmth and candor and takes us on a journey of discovery and awakening.

What makes this book special is Dawn’s shining lack of ‘ego’ or need to assert her own or any one person’s views, discoveries or answers as ‘the’ way to fix your problem. There is no ‘one way’ to fix your broken heart, heal your symptoms or change your life.

Instead, you are invited to take a journey through other people’s experiences, thoughts and insights, whilst every step of the way, being encouraged to reflect on your own thoughts, your own insights and ultimately your own personal growth. You will get the most out of this book if you approach it with curiosity. Curiosity for the journeys of the authors and a curiosity to reflect on what resonates with you and equally what you choose to discard.

This book is packed with so many opportunities for personal discovery that I suggest you keep a notepad and pen nearby, not just for the exercises that have been skilfully designed to move you closer towards that light that you seek, but to make a note of your own ‘light-bulb’ moments when your world shifts and your light inside shines just a little bit brighter.

Each of the authors – and lets call them ‘Gurus’ as they truly offer light in the darkness – has openly and lovingly revealed themselves, sharing their steps and stumbles along the path of discovery.  You will find yourself on a journey with friends, intimate and encouraging, supportive and uplifting.

Each Guru will not only meet you where you are, connecting with your pain, your fear, your frustration, but will offer such insights that will give you the encouragement and the support to move forward and find your own feet. They will help you take the next step.

On your journey through this ‘village’ of self-discovery you will benefit from the varied life experiences of some very special souls along the way.

Sam Thorpe is an International speaker and trainer in Conscious Health and stress and trauma relief and author of ‘METAMessages From Your Body – Understand the cause of disease and why the body doesn’t make mistakes’.

Dial a Guru - Awaken Your True Potential is written by everyday people, who have gone through experiences in their lives, that eventually transformed them. The fact that this book has been created is a true example of how the authors themselves have awakened their true potentials - by learning from the challenges they experienced, and bringing out the best from each of these, and their own wisdom, and character. The book is full of real life examples, exercises, tips and valuable content, coming from authors of many cultures. It is a true little treasure this book.:) I love having it.
