My first book, This Trip Will Change Your Life: A Shaman’s Story of Spirit Evolution, tells the story of my becoming a shaman and includes wisdom from my spirit guides and the Universe that can resonate with anyone looking to figure out and live their life purpose. The book has won six awards and has been featured on BuzzFeed, Popsugar, SheKnows.com and MindBodyGreen, among others.
Stay tuned for Book #2, due out in Fall 2018, which continues my journey in the jungles of Guatemala and Cambodia! If you would like updates about my second book – or even want to weigh in on cover design, book title, etc. – please subscribe to my mailing list.
