PUBLISHER:  Balboa Press; A Division of Hay House

SUMMARY:   Consciously Connecting is an exciting and easy step-by-step guide which will engage you with a weekly plan of action. It aids those who are too connected to technology with insight on “How to Reconnect” to themselves and others without the use of screens, keyboards or cell phones.

The book is divided into the twelve months of the year, each month has a theme, and within that month there are four weekly exercises. Each week’s exercise allows for a deeper connection to yourself, your life, and others, without having more things to do. This is about re-learning how to live connection, it’s not about having more things to do, it’s about BE-ing.

Learn how to disconnect from poisonous people, actively engage in the present moment, enthusiastically make time for play, and move in the direction of your goals. Consciously Connecting will reward you with a huge shift in your thinking and the way you connect to everyone and everything.

BACK STORY:  Consciously Connecting was written as I was experiencing my own disconnect and witnessing the disconnection of so many others. I was in the middle of Central Park, and more interested in my emails than my surroundings. Speeding taxi’s, joggers, and horse carriages can all be a recipe for disaster if you don’t look up!  It seemed timely to not only offer this gift to myself, but to others as well.

Consciously Connecting took one year to write and another six months to finalize putting all the pieces together.

WHY THIS TITLE?:  Working as a Wellness and Business Coach has allowed me to see the disconnect in my client’s personal lives and businesses. As mentioned, I was having trouble with my own work-life balance, and the word connection kept coming up in conversation.  When I work with a client it’s all about consciously connecting to what they desire, want, and need in their life or business, so the title seemed like a perfect fit.

WHY SOMEONE MIGHT WANT TO READ IT:  If you’re a fan of Super Soul Sunday, enjoy Deepak, Gretchen Rubin, or want to find balance and re-connection to the things you love, this will be a great tool for you. If you want to learn how to reconnect to spontaneity, creativity, connectivity, this will be an exciting and energizing way to go about that journey.
