Every aspect of our multi-faceted humanness-- body, mind, heart, spirit-- needs to move (sing! breathe! dance! pray! wrestle!) in order to thrive. Movement is not only soul-awakening medicine for our individual selves, but our journey of its creative embodiment also supports global healing.
The focus of the book is on what keeps us smiling during times of uncertainty and challenge, and how we do it. Two years into a global pandemic, I'm sure you'll agree there are A LOT of folks who could benefit from such a book!
Hardship is part of the human experience that we all endure from time to time, even those of us who seem to "have it all figured out." How we manage our struggles shows up differently for each of us and this beautiful display of our uniqueness can be extremely helpful and inspiring to others. Sharing insights into what works for us when we need a boost helps to spread some light, and trade and plant seeds of hope and motivation.
Standing in Joy is a much-needed collection of passion, practices, and experience-based wisdom for staying sane, feeling grounded and knowing joy, even when the world around us gives us many reasons not to.
I believe we can learn a lot from each other, and we never know whose life might be changed for the better from hearing our story.
