As Easy as Breathing: Reclaiming Power for Healing and Transformation—Poems, Letters and Inner Listening
ISBN: 0595235565 Writers Club Press. 2002 As Easy as Breathing is the moving story of a woman's struggle and triumph over cancer told through poems, letters, and conversations with Spirit. This book is a spiritual journey through a dark night of the soul and into the light beyond. The author's body-mind-spirit was healed, her relationships were healed, her life profoundly transformed. She learned to live deeply, using everything as an opportunity for growth and clarity. Sometimes funny, always graceful, honest and inspiring, this hope-filled book is particularly relevant in these troubled times.
"This book is for anyone going through a healing process...and that's all of us! It is so powerful and life affirming. What tremendous insights!" (Chris Belz)
