WELCOME FROM PATRICIA & JOYCE

Welcome to the HEARTMIND WISDOM Community!

If you are like most people, you want to inject something positive into the world; perhaps, by writing a book about your transformational journey. Unfortunately, as it is for many wannabe authors, there are obligations and/or fears that have prevented you from realizing what is truly a laudable goal—sharing your heartmind wisdom so that others can heal and prosper.   

Dr. Wayne Dyer dedicated his life to encouraging each of us to live fully and with purpose. Perhaps, for you, this would require authoring the book that's been sitting on a shelf in your mind for years. If it is, we encourage you to participate in the HEARTMIND WISDOM Publishing Contest.

You can enter by either purchasing an advance copy the Collectors' Edition of HEARTMIND WISDOM #4, or by e-mailing your transformational story (2,500-5,000 words) to kindnessiskey@hotmail.com. (The Publishing Contest Entry Rules are at the bottom of this page.)

We've dedicated our lives to helping new authors write, publish, and promote their transformational stories. You'll understand why when you read "THE HEARTMIND WISDOM STORY" below. 

Love and light,

Patricia and Joy 

THE HEARTMIND WISDOM STORY INTERVIEW WITH PATRICIA CONNOR & JOYCE ROSS

Joyce Ross was a gambling addict. Patricia Connor suffered from occasional bouts of debilitating depression.

After hearing divine whisperings that what they needed to heal their own lives was “kindness,” and that they should “take the healing knowledge of others to the world,” these long-time friends created Kindness Is Key (KIK) Training & Publishing Inc., home of the HEARTMIND WISDOM Inspirational Anthology Collection. 

“Each author’s story is an enriching eye-opener,” said Connor. “From Larry Chase’s 230-pound weight loss to Maytawee’s journey from an illiterate street kid to an ordained monk-nun, readers benefit from the life-gained wisdom of others. Collectively, our authors fulfil the desire expressed in the idiom: I wish I’d known then what I know now."

“Readers are impressed by the creative healing strategies our authors have employed,” said Ross. “To cope with losing seven loved ones in three years, Shirley Bueckert adopted various historical personas while exploring foreign lands. To find her calling, Rehana Nanjijuma volunteered in war-torn countries. To avert a nervous breakdown, Roswyn Nelson hitchhiked to Mexico. To overcome his sense of unworthiness, three times, Brock Tully bicycled 10,000 miles around North America seeding kindness.”

“The authors’ healing journeys weren't all grand gestures,” added Connor. “When his young son began suffering seizures after a childhood vaccination, an insight from a psychic motivated psychotherapist Ted Kuntz to teach others the secrets of inner-peace. Katharine Fahlman went camping to deal with the stigma of bankruptcy. While experiencing postpartum blues, Taslim Jaffer reconnected with her heart through writing. An alternative medical practitioner helped Rahim Valli recall and resolve the childhood trauma shadowing his life.”

Each book in the collection is a compilation of authentic stories written by 21 visionaries who have shared their tumbles, comebacks, and insights to help others. Divided into 5 RESTORATIVE CATEGORIES—Bouncing Back, Divine Inspiration, Hope, Healing from Loss, and Self-Actualizationthe HEARTMIND WISDOM Collection is destined to become a timeless literary treasure.  

The first edition of HEARTMIND WISDOM was published in 2013. The second anthology hit online bookstores in 2014, the third in 2016. The fourth collection will be published later this year.

HEARTMIND WISDOM: Courageous and Inspiring Journeys by Everyday People. Compiled by Joyce Ross and Patricia Connor ISBNs: #1 – 978-0-993-7060-2-8, #2 – 978-0-993-7060-1-1, #3 – 978-1-77084-721-7. Paperback: $20.00 Available at major online bookstores and at www.heartmindstore.com.
