Susan J. Hawkins

Susan J. Hawkins is a contributor to our award-winning book, The Power of Love. The book is dedicated to her late husband, Dr. David R. “Doc” Hawkins. The author, Fran Grace, spent many years in close connection with Doc and Susan; the book narrates the transformative effect of their love upon her life. Before Doc passed away in 2012, Doc and Susan calibrated a list of people for Fran to interview and learn from. These teachers come from all walks of life and spiritual traditions—a demonstration of Doc’s teaching that love is present everywhere. The book is unusual in its interweaving of high teachings on love from diverse teachers with the author’s honest sharing of her struggles to embody them.

Mrs. Hawkins serves as president of The Institute for Spiritual Research, the foundation started by Dr. Hawkins. She was the “fulcrum,” he said, that made possible the sharing of his knowledge and presence in the world. Blessed with keen intuition, she offered crucial insights and companionship, and he was never onstage without her. She joined him in several video-recorded dialogues on practical topics such as “Improving Your Relationships” and “Live Your Life Like a Prayer.”

She published an inspiring book about her life with Dr. Hawkins: Life with ‘Doc’: My Husband & My Teacher, Dr. David R. Hawkins.   For more information on her events, to contact her, or to sign up for their newsletter, go to Veritas Publishing.
