Susan J. Hawkins is a contributor to our award-winning book, The Power of Love. She is president of The Institute for Spiritual Research, the foundation started by her late husband Dr. David R. 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 wrote the Preface to Dr. Hawkins’ new book (2020), The Map of Consciousness Explained. Mrs. Hawkins offers an annual event in Arizona, to which people from around the world come to gather for inspiration and fellowship.

The Power of Love book is dedicated to Dr. David “Doc” Hawkins and Susan Hawkins. The author, Fran Grace, spent many years in close connection with Doc and Susan, and the book narrates the transformative effect of their love upon her life. The book includes close-ups of Doc and Susan in their home, and an in-depth interview with Doc on “Love in Everyday Life.” Before Doc passed away in 2012, they conceived of this book, as a teaching and transmission of love in its many facets and expressions. Doc and Susan calibrated a list of people for Fran to go meet, interview, learn from, and include in the book. 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.
