Inspirations for Loving Life

Wren cover photo.jpg

Essences of Truth is a collection of 29 essays that can open us to new ways of thinking about life. I have embraced these philosophies over my lifetime like sipping nectar from a flower to enhance my journey. The essence is to love everything just as it is and to live life wholeheartedly from a contemplative view. We are inspired to love ourselves more and more regardless of what is appearing in our lives. A life that allows love to guide the way, peace to descend within, and joy to erupt into the world is a blessing for all of us.

May love always lead our way of being in the world.

Reviews of Essences of Truth


Thoughtful and uplifting messages for turbulent times

Anne Round shares insights and a passion for life in her collection of essays, Essences of Truth. With warmth and an open heart, she writes about a wide range of topics, including peace, self-love, creativity, the physical world, spiritual life, and family. There is a gentleness to the book, which I found soothing. I particularly enjoyed the intentions she sends to readers at the end of a chapter. May she continue writing uplifting messages during these times of significant change.
