Previous project:

Book Summary –The basic premise of this book is that we are here to open, grow, mature, awaken and deepen. We do in different ways, by our own volition, by the intelligence of the body, or through life taking the reins and leading us on a merry dance. A transition is more than a change because a transition changes you on the inside as well as the outside. Fundamentally a transition ends one phase of life and leads to another. Personal transition can be an exciting or very challenging process. Usually when we move into the transition process through our own volition it is more exciting and when we feel drawn into it against our will it feels more challenging, chaotic and scary. Every transition comes offering the potential for awakening, growth, liberation, flow and adventure. In the case of challenging transitions this may take some time to fully realise. Personal transition is becoming increasingly more commonplace because it fits within a greater context of global awakening. This book gives a basic map and understanding of the process of transition. It explores the different paths of transition and it gives essential tools to navigate each step of the way.
