‘Bigger Than Us’ is Fearne Cotton’s most recent book, and as a lover of her other books, I was excited to get my hands on this one. In the book, Fearne takes a deeper look into different spiritual practices and beliefs and covers topics like meditation, energy work and manifestation. As well as providing the reader with thoughtful information on each topic through interviews with experts; we also read about Fearne’s personal experience as she embarks on a journey to achieve a deeper connection with herself and the world around her.
Bigger Than Us is for anyone seeking a path through their confusing lives and offers inspiration for tapping into the strength and comfort around us and releasing the blocks and insecurities that hold us back.Fearne Cotton, ‘Bigger Than Us’.
This book touched on the basics of each topic and with well-written interviews with experts in each area, Fearne provided thoughtful insight and advice making the practices easier and more accessible for the reader. Saying that, as the basics of the practices are briefly discussed within each chapter I would say that this book is a great starting point for anyone looking to start their spiritual journey. I would suggest doing alternative research and looking deeper into the topics that catch your interest.
However, when reading this book from the perspective of someone with a more developed spiritual practise it’s fair to say the information isn’t revolutionary. Again, this is because only the basics are touched on. Nonetheless, I found reading Fearne’s personal experience of the practices and how she tried to integrate them into her daily life to be fascinating. I also find that learning about other people’s practices can help us develop our own practices and even find new ways to become more in touch with our spirituality,
Overall, I have rated ‘Bigger Than Us’ 4.5 stars. This is because I found the book to be well written and informative. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to delve into spirituality as it opens the reader up to multiple different spiritual practices. I would be less likely to recommend to someone with a more developed practice. But, I may still do so depending on what exactly they were looking for from the book.
