A beautiful coffee table companion that serves as a guide for the journey through transformation, Surprises is an escapade that entwines wonder with insight, spiritual awakening with authentic wisdom. On each page are Hade's ruminations, accompanied by whimsical yet powerful images from award-winning photographer Endre Balogh. Together they create an experience that dares to awaken with surprises in conscious awareness. Arntz's inspiration for Surprises is based on his concept that "the 'you' before is different from the 'you' afterwards," no matter the form or degree a surprise one might experience. He carefully compiles Hade's insightful musings and, with the book's title as the lure, promises soul-level surprises in the form of spiritual insights. The pieces in the book have a familiar sense about them; they speak to our inner wisdom. Hade has an uncanny ability to put into words the wisdom of the mystics, reminding us of our capacity for spiritual transformation. Many of Hade's revelations come from mystical experiences, stemming from her realization of the healing power of light after her mother was diagnosed with terminal cancer. In her professional work, Hade teaches individuals to connect with their inner wisdom and healing potential. The writings featured in Surprises refl ect her teachings, revealing transcendent contemplations as well as tidbits of profound wisdom masked as simple, compact statements. Balogh's images, likewise, serve as both a powerful visual backdrop and a meditative interlude. These elements help authenticate the surprise the creators envisioned.
