The Heart of the Labyrinth

Reminiscent of Paolo Coelho’s masterpiece, The Alchemist and Lynn V. Andrew’s acclaimed Medicine Woman series, The Heart of the Labyrinth is an evocative spiritual parable, filled with exotic landscapes and transformational soul lessons.

The Heart of the Labyrinth has been awarded as one of 100 Best New Books in Women’s Spirituality! (see the full list here)


As everything she thought she knew about herself disintegrates: her health, career, family and identity, Maya embarks on a journey of discovery to the land of her ancestors. There, a mysterious Sage guides her through dreams, visions and lifetimes, to the heart of the labyrinth.

Coming face-to-face with her subconscious belief that being a woman is a threat, she understands that to step into wholeness she will have to reclaim the sacred feminine fire burning in her soul.

But what is at stake far exceeds her individual life: with it sits the fate of the Earth herself, waiting for the Priestess to be reborn.

A grand, soul-shifting answer to the hungry soul’s question: who am I? Maya’s story calls us back to a sacred, personal connection with the Earth.

Nicole Schwab is a mesmerising new voice for our times, offering a message of Earth-centered wisdom reuniting us with the divine feminine.


“Nicole Schwab’s beautiful, engrossing exploration of deep mind and the meaning of our existence is laudably courageous and brilliant in its weaving of lives across cultures, over millennia, to pursue the answers so many of us seek today, especially as women called to co-create a better world for all humanity and all other species. This book truly reveals us as spirit struggling and ultimately triumphing through our human existence – just what we need at this critical time of emergence through emergency!”

Elisabet Sahtouris, PhD, evolution biologist and futurist; author of EarthDance: Living Systems in Evolution

“Once in a while, a book comes along that kindles the fire of our inner wisdom so profoundly, the words seem to leap off the page and go straight into our heart. If you read only one book this year, this is it. Nicole Schwab shines a powerful bright light on the dark crevices of our soul, revealing that what we are most afraid of dissipates in the light of wisdom, and more powerful than fear is love.

She shows us how we can consciously choose a different future by changing the beliefs we hold about who and what we really are. Her voyage of discovery becomes an odyssey of inner revelation and transformation. In her eloquent and inspiring description of her healing path, she shows us our own.”

“In this lyrically mystical narrative journey we hear the call of the wild, the call of Feminine, the call of deep healing, and the call of the soul. In the whispers of Gaia woven through this book, you may discover what you’ve forgotten about yourself.”

Molly Remer, M.Div, MSW, priestess, certified birth educator, goddess artist, and author of Womanrunes guidebook.

“I can’t put it down. A really important book and one that should be seen by many.”

Lynne Franks, author, entrepreneur and women’s empowerment guru

“Alchemical, confronting and illuminating. Read it and relish the journey.”
