Author Biography

A decade ago, Mandi J Nelson dusted herself off, deciding to become the ‘Best Version of herself,’ embarking upon an initial ten-year experiment. In earnest, she began a ‘path of purification,’ actively choosing growth at every juncture. A Golden Key Honour recipient, she is a teacher, photographer, healer, funeral celebrant, spiritual mentor and writer. Her ‘soul work’ is to film the terminally ill before they die. Mandi J is passionate about the Sun and Moon, Ceremony, Original People, and Cacao in the Tipi. She commutes between the city and the country, her children, students, Beloved, soul family, and her dogs. Following the sun across the globe, she holds pilgrimages to spiritually charged destinations, lovingly awakening people to their true potential. She inspires and encourages others to 'Development and Self Mastery,’ through her own dedication to walking her own path, to the mystic beat of her own drum.

Awakening My Spiritual Heart by Mandi J. Nelson is an engaging collection that will take readers on her journey from darkness to light and will inspire them to open their hearts to their own spiritual awakening. She introduces readers to the concept of the Eight Limbs of Yoga and helps them understand that practicing yoga is more than an exercise; it is also a way of expanding consciousness and Awakening the Spiritual Heart. The stories shared will create a lot of meaning for readers and give them many ways to unpack their own lives.

Awakening My Spiritual Heart by Mandi J. Nelson is insightful and gives a lot of information about yoga and the practice of Dhyana, which gives glimpses into the soul and gives a good understanding of the laws of Karma and spiritual growth. Learning and practicing yoga has helped the author keep her body supple and vital, and the yoga asanas have assisted her in moving and shifting the energy around her body. Her magical, unfolding journey will help readers understand how, via meditation and yoga, they can achieve stillness and self-reflection, self-inquiry, and love. The author's explorative path of spirituality is inspiring and will motivate many readers out there to live their lives more from the heart and have a perspective of more beyond what actually is. It is a good book for all those who want to discover themselves, find peace and happiness, and live the best version of themselves.

Mandi, I just finished reading it. I give it 5 stars too. A beautiful, moving, powerful with integrity, and humbling read. I read one chapter a night because there was so much in each chapter to digest (and I wanted to make it last as long as possible). You’re an amazing and inspiring woman. I was already back on my path to shed old patterns, but this has really helped. “If Mandi can do it, I can do it”. Thank you so much for sharing your story. ♥️♥️♥️

P.s, I’ve shared it with everyone I know. This book needs to be read!
