**** PRIZE #1 ****
We are picking 3 Winners to get a paperback copy of THINKING OUTSIDE THE CHRYSALIS by Trish Ahjel Roberts and 1 winner will get $25 coupon for coaching, yoga, or retreat services.
“There is so much going on in the world that it’s easy to lose your way, especially as a young woman of color in America right now. This book really helped me dive into my deeper self to help me start living my life comfortably as my truest self.”- Mona Swain, Theater Actress and TikTok Influencer
As the world manages the devastation and unrest created by the global pandemic and ongoing police brutality, Trish Ahjel Roberts carefully weaves her own story of trauma and redemption into a revolutionary path of joy and fulfillment that any woman can embrace. Each chapter is a drop of nectar with its own related message, social media support group, affirmations, guided meditations, inspiring music playlist and recommended films to make personal development fun, relevant and accessible to women everywhere. The Greek origin of the word, “chrysalis,” or butterfly cocoon, means “gold.”
The shell that encloses us is often a beautiful façade that keeps us trapped in complacency. This book will show you how to identify your passions and find the courage to break away from the routine and live your most authentic and joyful life. Butterflies feed on drops of nectar. With a simple 12-drop approach, you will receive the nourishment you need to soar through life with the ease of a butterfly.
Our thinking is what limits us. If we believe there is nothing outside of our cocoon we can never have a breakthrough. We first must have a “think-through,” believing in the effortless abundance waiting for us on the other side.
This book uses real-life experiences, along with Buddhist and yogic philosophies, to shine light on the freedom awaiting you outside the chrysalis.
