Using the Hansel and Gretel myth as a metaphor for life, psychologist and writer Sinetar speaks to those who are attempting to live their deepest calling in the midst of a seductive world. Happiness begins on the inside and does not depend on externals or material things, according to her. She emphasizes the power of a positive view without being pollyannish, and stresses how optimism is essential for the creative process to unfold.
Sinetar is an educator, corporate advisor, lecturer and author of Ordinary People As Monks and Mystics (Paulist Press 1986) and Do What You Love: The Money Will Follow (Paulist Press 1987), To Build the Life You Want, Create the Work You Love (St. Martin 1995), The Mentor’s Spirit: Life Lessons on Leadership and the Art of Encouragement (St. Martin 1998), and Don’t Call Me Old, I’m Just Awakening!: Spiritual Encouragement for Later Life (Paulist Press 2002).
