White Hot Truth
Tired of everyone telling you positive thinking will fix all your problems? Me too. In this candid book about the problems with self-help, Danielle Laporte writes why it’s time to accept that life is messy…and sometimes magical. And question everything you hear from spiritual “leaders”.
Has your self-help become self-criticism? A wise and often hilarious exploration of the conflicts between spiritual aspiration and the compulsion to improve, from Oprah Super Soul 100 member, Danielle LaPorte.
Like a wise girlfriend you can totally relate to, Danielle cheerleads you to own your wisdom and self-worth by having a good laugh (and maybe a good cry) at the ways you’ve been trying to improve on your self-improvement. Rooted in compassion, feminism, and spiritual activism White Hot Truth is an intimate and (hilariously) relatable account of self-help tales gone wrong, and very right.
If you love Brene Brown and Liz Gilbert’s authenticity, and Marianne Williamson’s strong spirit, you’ll adore how Danielle lays bare “Boundaries for spiritual people”; the “Discipleshit” that happens when we give our power away; a “Soul-perspective” on suffering; “over tolerance” and “foolish compassion” in relationships, sneaky self-loathing; spiritual glamour. And in her poetic and brazen way, she brings it home with the hottest truth of all: You are your own guru.
