Review “In this time of great change, our modern culture needs tools for
finding a way back into balance with nature, soul, and spirit. Nixa leads
readers along the Path of the Heart: a three-pronged approach to personal way-
finding, healing, and transformation that weaves together traditional
shamanism, modern soul psychology, and nature-based mindfulness practices. . .
. a brilliant book that is truly innovative.” (SANDRA INGERMAN, M.A., author
of Soul Retrieval and Walking in the Light)“Heart-centered living has been
failing in the Western-influenced world with dire consequences for us and the
earth. Nixa takes us on a journey that becomes a self-help manual for reviving
our human nature through the deliberative and intuitive nurturing of our heart
minds. In the process, we learn to rebalance our minds and center our spirits
in life more broadly, opening ourselves to our unique gifts. It’s a book for
anyone ready to move forward toward self and community transformation.”
(Darcia Narvaez, Ph.D., professor of psychology at the University of Notre
Dame)“With metaphor and poetic prose Nixa describes practical exercises, to
which everyone can relate, for implementing the ancient wisdom of
complementarity both within ourselves and in the world around us. Enjoy the
read, follow the guidelines, and feel the joy of legacy you can start ‘leaving
in your wake.’” (Four Arrows (Don Trent Jacobs, Ed.D., Ph.D.), American Indian
activist and author)“Nixa’s lovely book offers both an inspirational and
grounded approach that requires embracing the ‘four shamanic steps of hearing,
honoring, acting, and protecting as core requirements’ on the navigational
path of the heart.” (Linda Star Wolf, Ph.D., director of Venus Rising
Association for Transformation and author)“Jeff Nixa has created a valuable
spiritual field manual for discovering and attending to our inner growth work.
His ability to combine the practices of core shamanism with leading-edge
spiritual psychology comes from his many years of serving from the heart. If
you follow Jeff’s practices and programs you will experience greater ease and
freedom in your life as a result of expanded consciousness and the awakening
of your dormant gifts, strengths, and talents. Every page of this essential
book is filled with the love he exudes in all of his work.” (Michael Stone,
host of KMVR’s Conversations)“The Lost Art of Heart Navigation acts as an
insightful guide for the journey home to one’s authentic self. It explores how
the path of the shaman reconnects each of us with our soul, personal
empowerment, and sacred creativity. This book is heartfelt, innovative, and
greatly needed at this time.” (Anna Cariad-Barrett, D.Min., author of Shamanic
Wisdom for Pregnancy and Parenthood)“The brain is loaded with
neurotransmitters but so is the heart. In this remarkable book, Jeff D. Nixa
helps his readers follow the path of the heart, a route well known to tribal
shamans but one all but ignored in the modern world. Drawing upon ancient
wisdom as well as the work of contemporary Jungian psychotherapists, Nixa
provides exercises, rituals, and tools that are informative, visionary, and–
most important–transformational.” (Stanley Krippner, Ph.D., coauthor of The
Voice of Rolling Thunder)“Relying on the wisdom of helper spirits, Jeff Nixa
has designed The Lost Art of Heart Navigation to serve as a guide for those of
us seeking purpose and meaning in our lives. With valuable tools such as
breathing meditations, guided imagery, and outdoor moving meditation Jeff
leads us through the challenges of modern life and into our own heart path.
Join me on the adventure of saying yes to our heart’s invitations!” (Terri
Hebert, Ed.D., assistant professor of science education at Indiana University)
