Ilchi Lee’s latest book, The Call of Sedona: Journey of the Heart, was recently awarded a Nautilus Silver Award in the category of Religion/Spirituality – Other Traditions & Practices. Originally published as a trade paperback by BEST Life Media in September 2011, the book made it to the New York Times bestseller list in February 2012, as well as the Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, and USA Today lists.
The Nautilus Awards recognizes books and audio books that promote “spiritual growth, conscious living, and positive social change,” while at the same time stimulating the imagination and offering “new possibilities for a better life and a better world.”
In its twelfth year, the Nautilus Book Awards picks Silver and Gold winners in thirty-four subject categories, including audio books and six categories for children and young adults. Winners are chosen in a three-tier judging process by experienced two-person teams of book reviewers, authors, editors, librarians, booksellers, and other leaders in the publishing industry. In choosing books, they look for “distinguished literary and heartfelt contributions to spiritual growth, conscious living, high-level wellness, green values, responsible leadership and positive social change as well as to the worlds of art, creativity and inspirational reading for children, teens and young adults.”
Three books by Ilchi Lee also won Nautilus Silver Awards in 2010: In Full Bloom: A Brain Education Guide for Successful Aging (BEST Life Media, 2008), Healing Chakras: Awaken Your Body’s Energy System for Complete Health, Happiness, and Peace (BEST Life Media, Second Edition, 2009), and Brain Wave Vibration: Getting Back into the Rhythm of a Happy, Healthy Life (BEST Life Media, Second Edition, 2009).
