    Everyone who has their special, happy place where they go for reflection and self-care will understand Dr. Jill Bakke’s love of place as described in “Messages from the River.” For me that place is the ocean, and as I read the book I felt compelled to go there. The book reminded me that we know everything we need to know if we just sit and listen to our heart and intuition. Part travelogue (and I did research Astoria and the Columbia River after reading the book), and part lessons in life, “Messages from the River” reminded me of the value of finding your place and being your true self. That will lead to happiness and contentment in spite of the changes that most definitely will occur. The book is organized with chapters such as “Mooring,” “Diversity,” and “Hidden Gifts,” and with each topic Dr. Bakke explores how the river has taught her lessons, for example, on identifying the things that no longer serve you; nurturing your gifts; the fog of indecision; taking risks; and the... More > messages in dreams. Her love of place, Astoria and the Columbia River, is evident from her crisp and descriptive writing style, so compelling that it makes you want to add the destination to your travel bucket list. I read the book in one sitting, but it is worth going back and using each chapter for reflection and growth.< Less

    Written so clearly. Her words paint pictures I can visualize. So many great ideas to springboard from and apply to my own life. Highly recommend.

    The author makes you feel that you are there. Her passion for the river definitely comes through and her messages to the reader will cause you to look at life on the water, weather you make your living there or are just visiting for a day, on a whole new level.
