Teaser Tuesday: Breathing Space by Katrina Repka


My 2 “Teaser” Sentences for today: (Ok - so this one is a bit more than 2) This is a non-fiction book.

After so many years of feeling trapped by my emotions, I allowed myself to hope. Instead of just talking about the problem, Alan had a practical solution. And if it worked for me, who knew, maybe my dad would try it! He had as much need of it as I did, if not more. And it seemed to be the right time. To my amazement he had recently expressed his own desire to change the things he didn't like about himself.

~ p.81, “Breathing Space by Katrina Repka and Alan Finger"

From Amazon:
When Katrina Repka moved to New York, she was eager to shed her past and begin a new life, but she soon discovered that her old problems had followed her to the big city, and that instead of finding herself, she was more lost than ever. It was when she was almost ready to give up on everything that she read a magazine article on Master Yogi Alan Finger and knew that she had to meet him. It was a meeting that would change her life.

Over the next twelve months, with Alan's help, Katrina tackled and overcame many of the obstacles holding her back. Dealing with issues that every woman will relate to--criticism, emptiness, balance, family, and creativity (among others)--the twelve chapters in Breathing Space follow Katrina's ups and downs in New York. At the end of each chapter there is a simple but effective breathing exercise that will help readers eliminate harmful behavior patterns and speed their own process of personal transformation. Breathing Space is an inspiring and instructive book that offers every woman the chance to follow the author's path and become the person she truly wants and deserves to be.

Hi Wendy! Thanks for stopping by.

It may be the browser you are using. My work browser (Internet Explorer) is old and one of the other posts doesn't show.

If you want a good browser I would recommend Mac Safari which can be loaded on a pc. I've used IE and Firefox but safari is the best.

Sounds good, it's probably time for me to read a non-fiction! But how I love those fictions!
