Want to find more clarity, contentment and resilience
in this complicated world we all live in?
Cultivating self-awareness on a practical everyday down-to-earth level is the first step. When we lack self-awareness, it gets in the way of navigating life’s ups and downs.
Enlighten Up! presents a contemporary view of the five layers of self-awareness based on a 3,000-year-old model that provides a broader foundation for self-exploration than the more well-known mind/body model.
Author Beth Gibbs uses humor and stories to teach you to recognize the influence these five layers have on your life.
- Your physical body and environment.
- Your breath and energy, which makes up your life force.
- Your thoughts, beliefs and emotions.
- Your intuition, which acts with compassionate, nonjudgmental wisdom.
- Your connection to something larger than yourself.
Learn how to apply this model of self-awareness to your own life through the tips and simple yoga practices shared in this book.
Tara first met Beth Gibbs at a chapter meeting of the Connecticut Authors and Publishers Association in 2019, when Tara was speaking there. Beth stood out from the rest of the attendees with her bright smile and warm spirit. So, when Beth called Tara a few months later to talk about the manuscript she was working on, Tara was happy to take the call.
Almost a year later, we received Beth’s application and were thrilled to learn that she’d completed her manuscript.
In reading it, we found that it was well-structured and was written in a style that was both humorous and self-aware. At times, it was self-deprecating, but mostly it was just plain honest, sharing the unvarnished truth about her own personal journey to embrace self-awareness, and how simple yoga practices helped her along the way.
While we weren’t familiar with yoga or the 3,000-year-old Eastern philosophy model she based her book on, we found her book to be easy-to-understand and put into practice.
It’s been a pleasure working with Beth to produce her book, and we look forward to seeing what she accomplishes with it.
