Book – A Short Path to Change: 30 Ways to Transform Your Life

“Change is possible and does not have to be difficult.” ~ Jenny Mannion

I’m an advocate for Positive change. Always have been. I know its never easy to change our negative ways, but we can DO it if we are committed to our inner peace and happiness.

Change always seems daunting to the human mind. We are creatures of comfortable habit and refuse to change our ways simply because we think its difficult. But Jenny’s book kicks all those difficult ways to change out the window and gives you simple, clear, wise and doable ways to create positive change within you. Jenny’s journey is inspiring and learning from her life’s work has been a blessing for me. I recommend this book to everyone who really really wants to create positive change within themselves and add happiness to their life. A must read!

And do I have a treat for you- Below is an interview with the gorgeous and very inspiring Jenny Mannion about her amazing book. Enjoy darlings! Continue reading


The End of Self Help by Gail Brenner ~ Book Review and Author Interview

00051_FCA_02“Discovering Peace and Happiness right at the heart of your messy,scary, brilliant life.”

We are all looking for peace and happiness aren’t we? In search of the said peace and happiness we knock many doors, climb through many windows too and find a few answers that might or might not resonate with our truest self. While self help is NOT about knocking doors and climbing through windows, that is what we are led to believe. Self help is actually about looking within. Its sometimes very difficult to sift through the new age mantras and find good advice that resonates with our heart. Gail Brenner’s book The End of Self Help is that GOOD advice we NEED to absorb.

Digging Deep: Unearthing Your Creative Roots Through Gardening ~ Review

book cover franDigging Deep: Unearthing Your Creative Roots Through Gardening – This is one book you MUST have. Here’s why?

The updated 10th Anniversary Edition of Digging Deep: Unearthing Your Creative Roots Through Gardening is a powerfully uplifting and transformative self-help book for the creatively and spiritually challenged. Overflowing with tips, exercises, and resources, Fran shares the lessons she’s learned from gardening over the past thirty years. If you’re yearning to cultivate more meaning and connection in life, the 7 Stages of Creative Awakening mapped out in the book will help you extinguish the stifling inner voice that says, “I’m not creative,” and replace it with strategies that will help you harness your instincts and live a life filled with joy and creativity.

In Digging Deep: Unearthing Your Creative Roots Through Gardening, Fran Sorin shows readers how gardening can be a wonderful source of self-knowledge, healing and spiritual and creative awakening.

Though the premise of Digging Deep is firmly grounded in the theories of creativity set forth by psychologists and researchers over the past 100 years, its execution is wholly Fran Sorin – inspiring, exuberant, and refreshingly direct. The point is not to overwhelm readers with the whys and hows of the awakening process – or of gardening technique – but rather to invite them to jump right in and experience it for themselves.  It is a powerfully uplifting and transformative self-help book for the creatively and spiritually challenged.
