Shift: A Woman's Guide to Transformation (for MEN, too)

I wanted to share this book, Shift: A Woman's Guide to Transformation, (for MEN, too) with you because it seems like we finally have a manual for ridding ourselves of nagging issues that never go away . . . those issues that creep into our quiet minds and trouble us endlessly and wreak havoc on our health. This book offers easy solutions and if you go to the website, you can get a sample chapter and view a video on EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique (a healing technique you can do yourself by tapping acupuncture points) - which actually works! Here's more:
Shift: A Woman's Guide to Transformation (for men, too) was created by Tracy Latz, M.D. and Marion Ross, Ph.D. following repeated requests to share in written form the information they had been teaching for 6 years. Prior to using these tools on anyone else, they used them to shift their own lives. Tracy transformed anxiety & stress and an acute physical issue; while Marion used the techniques to transform chronic physical pain and an inner restlessness. Their system is a discussion of the 12 self-sabotaging obstacles that we all unwittingly place in our path followed by a menu of easy-to-use techniques for removal of each issue blocking your path. Tracy and Marion do not want you to struggle as they did to find the 12 Keys that they discovered! They share their solutions with the sincere intent of assisting you so that you too can Shift Your Life- only quicker than they did!
Bernie Siegel, M.D., a retired general/pediatric surgeon (& author of Love, Medicine & Miracles) heard about Shift: A Woman's Guide to Transformation and offered to write the foreword for the book. He says: "The lessons to be learned from this book are age old but reframed in ways that are easy to incorporate and appropriate to our lifestyle today ... cancer patients who display a survivor personality, exceed expectations and more often survive when no one gives them any hope...It is easier to have coaches and guides to help you on the path to transformation and this book can do that for you."

Shift is a melding of Chinese medicine, cognitive behavioral therapy, guided meditation, and energy psychology. This book can be used as an intensive personal healing journey and a reference guide to be consulted whenever a specific issue arises.
Drs. Latz and Ross give bullet points at the end of each chapter to show you how to most rapidly dissolve the obstacle in your life along with examples of how others have shifted their lives using these tools. If you're truly serious about changing any long-established habits of emotional patterns/thoughts that have kept you STUCK, then you are ready for Shift: A Woman's Guide to Transformation - Shift Your Life today!

I am also offering a discount on editing.

Announcing the Girl’s and Mom’s Edition of THE TRUTH: I’m a Girl, I’m Smart and I Know Everything!

Be the first on your block to get the Girl’s edition of The Truth!. It is similar but not identical to the Woman’s version. There is a new introduction just for girls, new questions for both of you to chat about after reading the book, and a slightly modified text where appropriate.

This girl encapsulates the spark and energy that your daughter has inside of her, and that you had inside of yourself as a girl. It is this special capacity for fun and wisdom that we need to protect in our girls and get back to ourselves!

“The Truth: I’m a Girl, I’m Smart, and I Know Everything,” is written as a diary by a young girl. Through the course of the book, the reader learns the girl’s thoughts on everything from bad language to her first love, from her parents’ fights to how she will stay true to her dreams as a grownup. The pages are filled with simple truths, wise and innocent at the same time. Girls, tweens, and teens will love the reinforcement they gain from The Truth’s diary entries, and their parents will love the opportunity to finally have a fun way to discuss with their kids so many issues around growing up.

Let’s rejoice in the girl inside of ourselves. Let’s give courage and affirmation to our daughters and granddaughters so they know from the inside out, it is ok, in fact, essential to keep her alive, as they grow up.

TESTIMONIAL: “My daughter April and I went to our book club meeting last night. The book we were discussing is called The Truth (I’m a girl, I’m smart and I know everything). The author, Dr. Barbara Holstein, was there. What a fabulous woman! She is so positive and engaging. The moms and daughters hung on her every word. She has such a gentle and eloquent way of expressing her thoughts and insights to the girls (and the moms). She was so enlightening. I am really looking forward to Dr. Holstein’s next book and certainly to hearing her speak again. What a pleasure!” ~ Donna Ruggiero
