Introduction to


Give Yourself Away
and Honor Your Heart

When I give, I give myself.
—Walt Whitman

As we delve more deeply into the inner art of giving and receiving, we come to see that we don’t just honor ourselves by stepping back from the busyness that surrounds us to attend to our own needs. We also honor ourselves by doing the opposite—by not holding back and by giving all we can give. To understand why this is true, we must dissect our long-held beliefs around gift-giving, many of which block us from giving the most important gift we can give—the gift of our heart. Through a creative, heart-centered approach to giving, we discover our essence. We discover what we are capable of giving. And we learn that it’s not just what we give, but how and when we give that can make all the difference.
