'I love Emma's book and the expression she gives to 'work as the gift' - this resonates deeply with me. How we value ourselves, whether we choose to view our work as a gift and whether we self-determine our own happiness - that is our gift, should we choose to see it. Emma's wonderful book opens us up to a whole new way of seeing.' --Polly Higgins, International Ecocide law advocate 'Emma Kidd is a practical visionary and her book, 'First Steps to Seeing' is a most useful companion on our journey of transformation. Read this book - you will be delighted.' --Satish Kumar, Editor-in-Chief, Resurgence & Ecologist magazine 'By offering many practical exercises and personal experiences, Emma helps us to discover the missed dimension of cognition in perception, opening up a new window on the world. First Steps to Seeing is a deeply insightful guide for anyone wishing to fully experience a more meaningful life, and engage more authentically with people, our organisations and the environment.' --Simon Robinson, co-author of Holonomics: Business Where People and Planet Matter 'First Steps to Seeing offers suggestions for seeing differently, both in its accessible and interesting text and also by means of simple but powerful experiments and observations, which include separating emotion from perception, and practising 'lived experience' and 'exact sensorial imagination'.' -- Pat Williams, Human Givens Magazine
