This is a new children's book by my friend, Karla Hansen, a clinical social worker in West Des Moines, Iowa. The book promotes the ideas of The Three Principles, a compassion-based psychotherapy modality.
"The Shimmering Secret shines with the light of author Karla Hansen's generous heart, gorgeous writing and vibrant, full-color illustrations. This book's message for children of nearly any age is one of discovering the innocence in everyone; and that each child possesses a core of goodness beyond measure. ... With careful research into the Chinese culture and language of the time, Hansen shares a cross-cultural story of hope and transformation that radiates beauty all along the way. Get this book for a child you love, or a child that needs love."
