Living as a Vessel

$2,296

Writing a book is like a vision quest. It is illuminating, challenging, pushes you to your edges, and delivers a great gift in the end. I have learned so much about myself while writing Living as a Vessel

Living as a Vessel is full of my vulnerable stories-- moments of trauma and challenge in my life, how I've integrated these moments, and how I've applied the extracted gifts towards my creative expression--my authentic voice. 

I've also included many practices and exercises for you to play with. It is my intention that as you do, you also glean the gifts of your integrated life experiences and are able to apply them to your creative expression.  

I appreciate your support as I birth this book into the world. It was truly a labor of love, pouring most of my creative energy into it since November 2017! And I'm excited to embark on the next leg of the journey... 

I have a timeline (and a celebration). I am pregnant with my second child, and our baby is due to arrive in March 2019. I imagine I will again receive massive transmissions from the birthing portal to offer to the greater world (this is what happened during my first birth, which I share in detail in the book), so I intend for this project to be complete so that my channel is clear and open to receive. 

I aim to complete the Audiobook version by February 2019, and for this effort, I need your financial support and encouragement. 

This campaign will cover the costs of the production and mastering of the AUDIOBOOK version (which is very exciting, so that this valuable message can reach a wider audience). Anything above and beyond the goal will reimburse me from the costs of the paperback and ebook, and will help me to market on a wider scale.

A few great things to know about "Living as a Vessel":

  • available in print, ebook, and audiobook (you will have the first copies!)
  • 203 pages 
  • 30 chapters plus 12 practices

Risks and challenges

I feel that I've already gotten through SO many bumps in the road. I've been completed discouraged, let the project rest for weeks at a time, and, by a minor miracle, was given the energy and inspiration to KEEP GOING. As I embark on the next steps, there will certainly be bumps. I've never recorded an audiobook (although I've recorded two albums, quite a few private voiceovers, and many meditations for Insight Timer App) but this is totally possible. I simply need your support and encouragement. Thank you SO MUCH.
