The Art of Talking to Yourself by Vironika Tugaleva~ Review and Author Interview

I’m all for healing and personal development. To say the self help and psychology section of a book store is my favorite place in the world…is literally under stating it 🙂 I could be lost in there for hours with the world shut off to me.

Vironika Tugaleva Author of THE ART OF TALKING TO YOURSELF

Over the years I’ve read numerous books that promise magic formulas and unrealistic(sometimes drastic!) ways to attain happiness and success. The Art of Talking to Yourself by Vironika Tugaleva is NOT one of those books. And I’m so glad it isn’t!

Its raw and real.

This is a book which invites you to look within and find the Light within. Vironika guides you to become a beautifully healed version of yourself all through self mastery and loving self talk. She gently teaches you to tap into your own inner wisdom, your light which doesn’t require another expensive course to attain happiness and peace.

Her take on this whole self help business is so refreshing, I wanted to hug her for her honesty and pure spirit. 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.
