The Elegance of Simplicity is the story of an encounter between two women: one in search of answers, the other having already completed her spiritual journey. Guìa, the profound, whimsical character in the story, takes us through her passage into consciousness from pre-birth to enlightenment. As the riveting adventure of Guìa’s life unfolds, you will become one with the knowledge-seeking narrator and find yourself on a voyage of discovery into the nature of human beings. This will lead you to the source of all we know and perceive. In this compelling book, the ancient art of storytelling is used to communicate life-altering concepts that challenge our tranquilized obviousness and propose a simple and effortless pathway to awareness.
I absolutely loved every second of reading this book. I know I will read it many more times because it was that therapeutic to me and I felt that many can relate to it as well. I loved it so much that I purchased couple more for my niece and a friend who loved it as much as I did. I even bought the French version of it too, that is how much I love this book. It’s value is worth way more than its price! I am grateful to the author for sharing such personal experiences and especially in the way she did, absolutely beautiful🙏🏼 - Hanouna
As a sales and leadership expert who also coaches CEO's, The Elegance of Simplicity is a must read for every individual who is seeking to perform at their best all the time while enjoying their journey. This book is a game changer.

This book was unlike any book I've ever read. For a book of its length, the impact and content was that of an entire series of writings. I found myself reading a chapter and digesting/taking moments to process what I had read and how it impacted my life directly. Guía's story and pearls of wisdom will leave you evaluating your life (past, present and future) and Self in a completely different light. I cannot recommend this enough if you are at all interested in a journey of self discovery and evaluation.
As a story, Sophie McClean has beautifully conveyed the journey to awareness, appreciation and acceptance for who we are fundamentally are as human beings. She provides the opportunity for the reader to reflect and use her methodology to discover decisions we have made in our lives and then make new choices from a place of consciousness and what we would like to create in our lives, in relation to ourselves, to others and in the world. Very worthwhile. I see the value for myself as well as for my clients.
-Barbara Frankel, Executive Leadership Coach
Sophie's book is a must-read for anybody on a path of transformation. She empowers and educates the reader in a magical way. If you are serious about growth, healing, and consciousness, read this book!
Reading this book I realised of some of the episodes in my childhood that created certain traits of my character. It's amazing how clear I could see, through Guìa's life experiences, that we are not who we think we are. We are not our suffering; we are not the persona we've built to survive this world of apparent hostility; we are not what we push against.
This is not fiction. It's a masterclass dissertation wrapped in a delightful tale of Self and ego, of love and fear, of awareness and machine, of freedom and slavery.
So many lessons that I'm taking away! You'll re-read it many times.
Connecting the physical reality with quantum reality. Holly interviews Sophie McLean, author of Elegance of Simplicity A Wisdom Teacher’s Epic Journey to Awareness. Questions they explore: What is the ego? How can we use the ego as a tool in our lives? How would you help people through dealing with the negative aspects of ego? What was Sophie’s journey to writing her book? How are you addressing the misconception that spirituality and mindfulness don’t belong in the business world?
"I was eager to talk about language, and how it creates reality. Sophie says it’s actually the only tool to create in this dimension. And she acknowledges that it is a limited tool. I am passionate about what kind of language has that actual power.
'Most of us use the language of description. When you use the language of description you don’t have any power to alter what is. I do not have a say in the matter of life. There is another language that is called the language of declaration. And that is the one that creates your reality. That language is extremely powerful because in the moment of the declaration you create a future that didn’t exist before. And it’s not the future “one day I’ll get to it”. It’s the future now. That language is available to everybody and can indeed create your life..'."
