For nearly two decades, Staci Boden has been counseling people in transition or crisis. The core of her work involves letting go of the illusion that we can control what happens next in our lives and learning to deal with what is.Whether we like it or not, control is an illusion. God and the universe laugh when we make plans. We can try hard to materialise somethinga new job, the perfect body, trust, our dream partner, inner peacewithout success. And sometimes life deals unexpected blows: illness, divorce and death. TURNING DEAD ENDS INTO DOORWAYS introduces eight teachers to help us navigate the unknown in daily lifefear, awareness, choice, body, intuition, energy, intention and surrender. With compassionate honesty and a practical sense of humour, healing practitioner, Staci Boden, shows how to interact with each of these teachers to better navigate the ups and downs of daily life. She shows how to let go of the illusion of control with simple practices of guided visualisation, discussion and synchronistic events that readers can use to embrace change and transform their lives.
"To today's anxious, frenzied world, Staci Boden offers a big in-breath. In "Turning Dead Ends into Doorways", she lays out the path of 'Practical Spirituality.' Rooted in the ups and downs of daily family and work life, the path embraces the Divine by opening compassionately to the unknown within and without. Boden walks her talk, and as we follow her through the challenges and traumas of her life as a wife, mother, friend, birthing doula and healer, we grow along with her. A candid, rare and immensely helpful book, especially for women in transition or crisis." --Meg Lundstrom, author of "What to do When You Can't Decide"
