Synopsis

The journey to true healing requires that we take the most challenging path there is: The path within.

It is tempting to hope that someone will do the hard work of your life for you, but no one else can. Inside takes your hand and helps you find your way.

The book's strong yet gentle counsel will help you construct a self-care practice to bring well-being to your life. With this foundation in place, you will be able to move beyond the cycle of fear, anxiety, and blame.

Drawing on ancient wisdom and modern practicality, the book offers a selection of soul-nourishing exercises to awaken your ability to make lasting change. From this new place of self-awareness and self-healing, you will learn to listen deeply-not to the noise of your surroundings, but to the ever-present peace that lives inside you. With a clear path you will be free to grow and realize the unlimited potential of self-healing.

Author

For the last twenty years, Sarah Brassard has been guiding women from a place of struggle in life to one of grace, peace, and ease through her signature process of sacred self-care.

She is the author of Inside: A Guide to the Resources Within to Stay Vibrant and Alive Through All Life’s Challenges, due to hit shelves in summer 2018. The book details the self-care practices that sparked Sarah’s healing journey.
Sarah presents at corporate and nonprofit venues both big and small and currently hosts Mindfulness, Meditation, and Stress Reduction classes at Groton WellnessPilgrim’s Landing, and Stanley Black & Decker. Her work is ignited by an enthusiastic dedication to integrating body, mind, heart, and spirit as well as an unshakeable conviction that there’s nothing in life that can’t be healed.

When she’s not writing, teaching, mentoring, or working on her own self-care practice, you can find her getting intentionally lost on a dog walk or laughing with friends and family on her porch at her family property on Cape Cod.
