Getting There by Being Here by Angela Silva Mendes
New book release by Publish Your Purpose Press, Getting There by Being Here by Angela Silva Mendes
By: Publish Your Purpose Press
What keeps us constantly moving? When the next project doesn't deliver the promised panacea, what is left? A never-ending chase, doing even more, frustration, exhaustion, a sense of flatness? Most of us in Western nations are overfed and undernourished physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. There comes a time when our old roadmap stops being useful. Through personal and client stories, Angela Silva Mendes reminds us to learn to recognize the roadmaps that keep us trapped in the perpetual rat race, for only then we can stop the mindless busyness.This book is the outcome of over 30 years of integrated experiences, lessons from self-work, and work with children, women, refugees, and families in Africa, Europe, and America.
The results of Angela's work are subtle yet groundbreaking. In Getting There by Being Here Angela shares her struggles as well as four principles and eight practices that teach us how to develop the ability to rest here, for this is the moment of all possibilities. It is possible to slow down and listen to what is unique about ourselves, to what Angela calls our Selfprint. If we want to rewrite our story, we can only do it from here and with who we are already. Life's invitations are not always pleasant but now, instead of dismissing or fleeing, we can dare to face the music and dance. Are you ready?
The book is available for sale on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or wherever you prefer to buy books.
