How Heal From Trauma, Find Inner Peace, and Discover the Means to Thrive through a Process of Spiritual Craftmanship
A Guide and Journal on the Art of Self-Healing and Actualization
Are you ready to discover the wholeness, the worthiness, the peace that is inside you already? To build a practice of self-love, awareness, and connection that can not only heal you but help bring forth a life of authenticity, fulfillment, and joy in the process of being?
This book and companion journal outlines a process of healing, discovery, and growth you can follow to heal and connect with yourself. Discover 40 engaging physical, emotional and spiritual practices and a process by which to develop your own healing and growth practice.
This book is not rooted in an assumption of lack or need. While many self-help and personal development books will fan the flames of a sense of emptiness that can only be filled from outside, Inside is rooted in a radically different perspective: you already have what you need inside you.
While there may be suffering and pain—wherever you are right now is exactly where you are supposed to be. It takes all sorts of circumstances to motivate us to look at life in a fresh and promising new way. So rather than judge the conditions of your life, bring awareness to them. Recognize the magnitude of your feelings and do your best to not get stuck there. As we will learn, the only way through discomfort and suffering is straight through it. Cherish the fact that you are feeling anything—you are alive!—even if those feelings are bringing you tremendous discomfort. It is better than the alternative of not feeling at all and it is the first step in your path to healing.
This book will help you take one at a time the steps on this journey of healing, being, and becoming, no matter small they may be. It will help you undertake and sustain of question through body, mind, and ultimately spirit.
This book’s intention is not to tell you which spiritual quest is best suited for you but rather to help you build a base, a starting point, and ultimately a foundation strong enough to take on the spiritual journey of your dreams. You are the true teacher of your life, and each step you take on this self-care journey will bring you closer to your truth. Grow closer to yourself, believe in your ability to change, and watch the arms of your life warmly open to welcome you home once again.
The Roots of My Book and Journal
I experienced the trauma of losing both parents at a young age followed by many years of trying to find my footing in a world that seemed out of control. After decades of cycling through suffering and struggle, I began to find solace through my extensive training and practice in massage therapy, which very naturally led me to discover Kundalini yoga, which I consider a sort of self-massage for body, mind, and spirit. This was a life-changing opportunity that taught me discipline and devotion to my self-healing and intraerpersonal discovery, which then led me to Interfaith Seminary andI eventually became a KRI Kundalini Yoga instructor and an Interfaith Minister.
My story took me on many winding paths, through ups and downs, into inner depths and up to peaks of joy and aliveness. I found many things that helped me heal my wounds and cultivate my spirit and many that didn’t live up to their promise.
“It wasn’t until I addressed the whole body, the whole mind, and the whole emotional system that I started seeing life-sustaining results.”
– Sarah Brassard
In my book and journal, I have integrated what has worked to help me along my journey, creating a signature process of sacred self-care that I facilitate with private clients, groups, and corporations around the world.
This book is many things: a guide on healing from trauma, a manual on how to find inner peace, a beacon showing how to get over the past and embrace a better now. It is a personal development book for women (and men) ready to overcome their limits, step into their truth, and embrace a life of empowerment, joy, and purpose.
Inside: A Guide to Resources Within
Realize health and wholeness by shifting your life from focusing on outer control to one of inner focus and sacred self-care.
Since you are here, I’m guessing you’ve reached a point in life where you’re tired of striving, guessing, manipulating, and trying to control outcomes.
You’ve cared for others. You’ve experienced trauma. And you’ve “done the work” (with mixed results) to “get more” out of life. Now, you’re ready to lay down your efforts of trying to figure it all out and, instead, step into a place of conscious surrender,radical trust, and natural grace.
Inside will take you through my signature self-care process and give you the tools to sustain that practice—not just to heal, but to empower and transform you. Because you’ve earned it—though the truth is, you didn’t have to earn it. You were always worth it. Your life is worth living, deeply and fully, without apology.
Written with an unshaken authority, keen wit, and deep empathy, Inside serves as a roadmap to lead you back home to yourself.
Inside: A Guide to Resources Within Companion Journal
The practices in this companion journal will help you receive, notice, and stay open to the many lessons pain and discomfort offer you when you cultivate the strength to listen.
That is the goal of self-care: to fortify your body, mind, heart, and spirit to meet the ever-changing experiences life delivers you.
The practices in this journal have been hand-picked to deepen your self-study and access your inner reserves, opening you to self-awareness. This is the key to staying on a healing path—to tune in to your inner being, to continually learn about what makes you uniquely individual, and from that attunement, grow into the most beautiful expression of who you are.
