Living From the Heart - Are you living from the heart?

After extensive travelling in India, Tibet and Nepal, pursuing her dream to set up a charity working with under privileged children, Shira Bassi was drawn into the spirit that is India.

During her travels, Bassi met a wide range of people including eminent businessman Captain Ravi from Pegasus, Bollywood celebrity Shilpa Shetty and famous gurus like Sri Sri Ravi Shankar.

After returning to London in February 2009, Bassi wrote her book ‘Living from the heart’ in just two weeks of intense writing. The workbook is a self help book which contains the findings she discovered whilst travelling. Bassi believes that self love is the first step towards healing - without this in place, all other efforts are often band aids that don’t last.

She says: “From a spiritual place of connection to the force of universal love, the expression of self-love took shape through this workbook. At that point of my life, the feelings I experienced were completeness, contentment and exhilaration for no apparent reason − a state of blissful self-love. This was a new way of being for me.

“This workbook is the expression of that self-love experience as it occurred in that moment. Although the flow is not there always, the original script is maintained as much as possible to prove that you can achieve whatever you desire. Fight for life; never give up.”

Bassi has since set up The Global Sea (Spirited Entrepreneurs Association). Its purpose is to draw from leadership qualities of the self, presence, awareness and intuition – what does this mean? This is the model of leadership based on answers from within oneself to strategies, decision making and executing. This style of leadership and business management offers a unified approach to how organisations are run, so there is a win/win mentality for all, rather than just the few at the top. This work is taken directly from her book ‘Living from the heart’ and then expanded for corporate leaders and entrepreneurs. The book can be ordered from Amazon (end of December 2009);, or through email: or call 07974813890 for an audio recording of the book.
