A Note From the Publisher

Writer, Life & Career Coach, Akashic worker, Artist and all-around Provocateur Amrita Rose has navigated three major (and many minor) career changes, lived in two countries and seven states, and continues to plan her next adventures. She has garnered enthusiastic appreciation for her community-based programs of yoga, meditation, integrated art practices and Positive Psychology “Positivity Slams,” all of which have enhanced the lives and not depleted the pockets of diverse groups of attendees.

Amrita skillfully weaves her deep knowledge of Yogic Science, Pranayama, various forms of meditation, along with a background in education, clinical mental health, Positive Psychology and more esoteric mindful and spiritual practices. She developed one of the most highly regarded yoga and meditation programs for in-patient mental health clinics and notable lowered the return rate of patients by more than 50% in the first year.

Doing her best writing while camping, hiking, and cabin-sitting, or perched atop a coffee-shop stool or a rocky moun-tain, Amrita loves to educate and inspire…motivating readers to be bold and dive into the work of honest transformation in their lives. She offers lived experience and wisdom garnered from hard work, and taking a no B.S. approach to herself and to life in general and encourages clients and readers to do the same!

Featured Reviews

Thanks to NetGalley, Amrita Rose, and the publisher for this ARC! I enjoyed this book. It was filled with some actual concrete tips (I loved the section on cooking!) interspersed with the author's own life experiences. Some of the essays were short (half a page), but that didn't really lessen the impact or the pacing of the book. The tips at the end of almost every essay were a nice summation, and the book was organized well. I enjoyed the essays on relationships, especially the ones that emphasized the relationship with the Self, and the exercises included in some parts were helpful. Overall, a nicely written book that I enjoyed reading.

I read quite a lot of self-help books and I have to say I savoured this one because I was enjoying it so much! The insights were relevant to my day to day light, the advice excited me and the writing kept me interested. There's so much advice that each reader will inevitably find some parts more useful than others - but I really do thing most will find a significant amount of value in this book. Congrats to the author!
