MOSCOW, March 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Celebrated Russian author and philosopher Zinovia Dushkova, Ph.D., was recently named as one of the "100 Most Spiritually Influential Living People in 2020" by Watkins Mind Body Spirit magazine. The London-based metaphysical authority publishes the yearly list to distinguish living spiritual teachers. Ranked as number 49 among the Dalai Lama, Pope Francis, Eckhart Tolle, Oprah Winfrey and Deepak Chopra, Dr. Dushkova is the first woman from Russia and the former USSR countries to enter the list.
With a rapidly expanding American readership, Dr. Dushkova is already famed in her native Russia and throughout the post-Soviet countries for a vast body of written work that includes approximately 60 books. She was introduced to American readers with her bestseller, "The Book of Secret Wisdom," despite initial rejections by publishers.
Zinovia Dushkova: A Journey of the Heart
A survivor of domestic violence from both childhood and marriage, Dr. Dushkova became a single mother of two in Soviet Russia. In 1992, she began to realize her goal in life was to become a world healer through love and compassion. Since then, she has travelled extensively around the globe, visiting secret and deeply holy sites in Tibet, Mongolia, Nepal, India and many other countries in both the East and West. Her 60-plus-volume oeuvre resulting from those travels represents a living legacy of light and love, centered in the heart.
Dr. Dushkova is often regarded by many experts as one of the spiritual successors of Helena Blavatsky, the 19th century creator of the Theosophical Society. This tradition influenced many of the greatest minds and personalities of the 20th century, including Mahatma Gandhi, Albert Einstein, Nikola Tesla, Thomas Edison and Elvis Presley. The ultimate goal of Dr. Dushkova's work is to bring humanity toward divine wisdom, through the cultivation of qualities like love and compassion.
According to Dr. Dushkova, humanity currently faces great challenges, since the Solar System is approaching an invisible spiritual sun. Its energies gradually cause global warming on Earth and only loving hearts are able to assimilate them. If human hearts fail to transmute these cosmic energies, this results not only in increasing cardiovascular and cancerous diseases, but also in natural disasters and epidemics, such as the coronavirus COVID-2019 outbreak. To aid people, she created her magnum opus, "The Teaching of the Heart" series – an overarching, rich exploration of all the ways by which the human heart can lead humanity to greater love, compassion, joy, connection and spiritual transformation.
Zinovia Dushkova: Self-Publishing Success
Dr. Dushkova's personal story is one of love and perseverance; a theme that she folds into her teachings as a way to explain a deep desire to illuminate love, and bring light to the darkest places of the human psyche. Her titles are often described as "books full of light," while readers are attracted to the unusual depth found in seemingly simplistic expressions of thought. Dr. Dushkova is also a poet, bringing beauty and musicality of language that distinguishes her creations.
Originally rejected by dozens of establishment publishers, Dr. Dushkova has since gone on to great popular success, selling nearly 100,000 copies of her award-winning English titles in multiple formats. She is rapidly gracing bookshelves all across the U.S., the U.K. and Canada, and is lauded as a living spiritual treasure. So far, "The Book of Secret Wisdom," "Parables from Shambhala," "The Secret Book of Dzyan," and the ten books of "The Teaching of the Heart," have been published in English by Radiant Books.
