There is Power in Storytelling

Consciousness gets shifted through stories, not knowledge, at least not at first. That is why I wrote my book, Waking: A Memoir of Trauma and Transcendence. I did not write Waking to tell you something about me. Rather I wrote it to show you something about the mind-body relationship. I just happened to use my personal story of paralysis and yoga as my vehicle of communication. Sharing my story is also why I am a public speaker. It allows me to share my experience and its implications in a wide variety of contexts, including conferences, businesses, healthcare organizations, at colleges and universities, and leading mind-body centers.
