My Soul’s Journey to Redefine Leadership: A New Phoenix Rises from the Ashes of 9/11chronicles why I brought all my resources from 30 years training and coaching Reconciliation Leaders at the United Nations to the  United States at this critical moment of our history.”—Virginia Swain

The story of an ordinary woman with extraordinary experiences, Virginia Swain’s soul journey takes her from the devastating loss of her brother to moments of peace, visions of a new future, and after a harrowing day in New York City on September 11, a vivid dream of a phoenix rising from the city’s ashes, calling her to a new definition of leadership — one of empowerment, reconciliation and peace.

“Virginia Swain’s memoir is inspiring.  It is rare for us mere humans to know God directly, far more rare to repeatedly receive divine guidance throughout life. We see how Virginia’s willingness to listen and obey God leads her back and forth across the country, into and out of relationships and very different tasks. She is led and supported by God’s loving affirmation. The book answers both what a Spirit-led life looks like and how a loving God nurtures individuals.”  Michael Resman, Co-editor, What Canst Thou Say
