Discover How to Live Life Lovingly


Essences of Truth is a collection of 29 essays that can open you to new ways of thinking about life. Through science, spiritual concepts and ancestral knowledge, the insights and guidance are offered for you to use as a roadmap to move in the world with more peace, love, and joy. The essence is to love everything just as it is and to live life wholeheartedly from a contemplative and compassionate view.


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


Through storytelling and reflection, the wisdom, life truths, and awareness that I have gained are presented in a straight forward easy to read manner. This exploration allows you to consider with gentle, self love:


  • The common ground we all have of being alive on Earth

  • The personal way we chose to navigate our lives

  • The way energy and intuition influence our journey every day

  • How creativity is expressed in our own unique way


Essences of Truth seeds ideas for learning who we are and what we are becoming. It provides guidance for loving the life we have and inspiration for expanding our horizons. We are encouraged to love ourselves more and more regardless of what is appearing in our lives. Each essay opens with a quote to set the tone and ends with an affirmation to carry forward into our lives. This is a book you can enjoy from cover to cover or sip a little wisdom each time you open it. 


May the joy of loving life spring forth in our hearts.

Reviews of Essences of Truth

"Meeting Anne and reading Anne's book has been a truly cathartic experience for me. The book is written in an autobiographical style that describes her journey as a human learning to love herself and others. The essays are short philosophical chapters that bring forward a set of values that answer the question "Who am I" from her perspective and how she has evolved spiritually through a lifetime of challenges.  


Like Anne, I have spent a career working in demanding professional settings that require high academic skills and professional qualifications. I believed that you had to work hard to be successful, and that the amount of effort you put in correlated to the degree of success that you could earn/expect. As I have come to the end of my professional career, I am now seeing firsthand that there is another way: we can allow The Mystery to influence our lives in a positive way as partners in co-creating our existence. The gift of this book is to remind us that we are all energy. If we can work with energy in a conscious way, then it can do the work for us - just like plugging an appliance into the wall socket. We just have to learn to allow and make room for the magic to unfold.


I had the pleasure and privilege to meet Anne in person, and have come to know her as a friend.  She is a genuine caring soul who exudes love for others and the planet. Her words of wisdom in this book are timeless and hopefully will influence others to reflect on their lives and perhaps shift perspectives from 'me' to 'we.' 


I highly recommend you set aside some quiet time to read and re-read each chapter and to notice how the messages resonate with your very being."

"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."
