Book review: Anatomy of Addiction

Anatomy of Addiction

Thank you Kelly for your comment below! Congratulations, enjoy your copy, and thank you for the good work that you must do!

Anatomy of Addiction was a title that grabbed me. I think we have all been touched by addiction in one way or another. Addiction may have affected close friends or family members battling alcohol or drug dependency, or you may live in communities where prescription drug abuse is prevalent or on the rise. Maybe your city, county, or state is one of the unfortunate locations known for increased heroin, meth, or other illegal drug abuse and fatalities.

Book review: 12 Simple Steps to Loving Life

12 Simple Steps to Loving Life

I am a sucker for “self-help” books. I started reading books in that category at about 18 years old, around the same time my interest in alternative healing modalities also emerged. I learned quickly that wellness – mind, body, spirit, was a total package. Authors like Dan Millman, James Redfield, M. Scott Peck, Thomas Moore, and Shakti Gawain, were the books I was reading while most of my peers had their heads buried in college textbooks.

Book Review: The Master Cleanse Made Easy

I have had a 25 year fascination with cleansing and fasting as a way of achieving optimal health, as well as an alternative healing therapy, and have many books in my library on the subject. The idea of giving your body a rest from food and digestion always made sense to me, as that is obviously what happens to most people when they get sick – they “lose their appetite”.

Giveaway: Let’s Dance!

Congratulations Jean and Julia! You both have earned a copy of In Rhythm With Your Soul with your awesome answers! Thank you for entering! 

I grew up a dancer. Both of my parents were very well known in the world of ballet, tap, jazz, and musical theater. Naturally, it is in my DNA. I made a living into my early 30’s working as a dancer, choreographer, and teacher.  The evolution of that career turned me into a personal trainer and yoga instructor, which I still do today, in my early 40’s.
