Nanette Hucknall’s powerful teaching style transformed my old way of living to living from the heart. I am a happier person now than I was before.

Ursula Velonis, PhD

Adjunct Professor – Philosophy Dept., Executive Board Member at United Faculty (UF), Los Medanos College


Nanette Hucknall has inspired me to open my heart to higher knowledge and inner wisdom and to balance this with intellectual knowledge in higher education and everyday life.  Working with the heart and the Higher Self I have come to embrace life with deeper awareness, understanding and acceptance, true communication, creativity, and a greater sense of wholeness.  The wisdom of Nanette’s book truly inspires toward self-awareness, compassion, joy, and the power of love.

Irene van Kessel, Doctor of Philosophy


A friend and I are reading and doing the exercises from Nanette’s book and sharing our thoughts. We both love this book. Although I have read other books referring to using ones heart, this one is superior in information relating to the specific uses of heart energy and the subtle nature of its personal guidance. A great treasure.

It seemed unnatural – as a scientist – to “work with your heart” but following Nanette’s advice in her book was an incredibly eye-opening experience.

From Her Latest Book

“Living from your heart is a way of life. It means to listen with your heart, to relate to others with your heart, to receive and give to others with your heart, to access knowledge with your heart, to inspire and be inspired, and to learn discrimination, trusting in your heart’s ability to recognize right from wrong. It means being open to any possibility and any creative thought.”
