Description

Karen Henson Jones was on the conventional path to success in the corporate world when a sudden cardiac event at the age of 30 took her to the brink of death. During an otherworldly experience, she was presented with a choice to leave her body or to return to Earth. When her request to live was granted, Karen was forced to come to terms with the life she had been living. With warmth, wonder, and wit, Heart of Miracles takes us with her on an inspirational journey through India, Italy, Bhutan, and the Holy Land of Israel in search of a more meaningful life. Exploring the power of meditation, Western medical science, the transformative doctrines of reincarnation, and the teachings of Jesus, Karen encourages us to embrace the full possibilities of our spiritual selves.

Review quote

"This is a beautiful book. Karen is a very good teacher, and her experiences have motivated her to work on behalf of the lives of others."
-- Khen Rinpoche, abbot of the Tashi Lhunpo Monastery (in exile), as appointed by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama "I'm touched by how Karen heroically turns a painful near-death experience into a beautiful search for meaning, where she meets Jesus, St. Francis, and God. The book you hold in your hands can bring you peace, laughter, and a new way of looking at life."
-- Chade-Meng Tan, Jolly Good Fellow of Google and best-selling author of Search Inside Yourself, and member of the One Billion Acts of Peace team nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize "It was either by chance or fate that I met Karen Henson Jones at a local coffee shop. I met an incredibly optimistic, spiritual woman, full of life.
"I would have never known that she endured many years of pain and experiences that would have left most lifeless, literally or metaphorically, but not Karen. Her optimism comes from her belief in something greater than ourselves. This book is an uplifting and inspiring chronicle of that journey."
-- Ken Paves, humanitarian, beauty expert, and author of You Are Beautiful "In Heart of Miracles, Karen searches out the wisdom and lives the wisdom to put her mind, body, and spirit back together. By practicing the concepts of meditation, yoga, and nutrition, she finds serenity and calm out of chaos. She is a new, powerful voice for a community of change in the areas of health care, well-being, and spirituality."
-- Donna Karan, designer and founder of the Urban Zen Foundation
