“I felt regenerated and inspired after reading this book. The principles written about for a book on business also apply to our everyday lives and translates to a wonderful way of living life. I like the honesty of the author writing about how their company specifically does business and the application of their business principles. while I was reading the book, I felt that I could do this and did not feel overwhelmed. Regenerating America is a much needed way of doing business for all self employed persons and existing corporations. Workers wouldn’t have to go on strike to receive a better minimum wage if the corporation were applying the principles of Regenerating America.” It is common sense approach to doing business and will heal our planet in the process. How great is that!”

The title of Ann Emerson’s book, ESSENCE, A Gateway to eXpansive Living, says it well. It addresses all the essentials of the human search for meaning from awareness, purpose and wisdom to divine will, love and unity. The book is uniquely interactive with its reader and is a profound confirmation of the Oneness of all. It serves as a powerful spiritual guiding tool for each of us as individuals, as well as for an ever evolving consciousness of the human species in a challenging and rapidly changing world.
