Diana's New Book - Phoenix Rising
I am pleased to announce that I am a
contributing author of our new Phoenix Rising book!
Powerful women authors from around the world
share courageous and transformational stories.
Phoenix Rising book launch:
Friday, September 24th at 9am!
In Phoenix Rising, nineteen remarkable women from across the globe take us behind the scenes and reveal what it took for them to rise from the ashes to achieve extraordinary things.
My chapter in this book is an exploration of the life of hidden truths, secrets and, most of all, self-deception, and how ubiquitous and tragically misunderstood trauma is.
In surviving trauma and caring for myself, perhaps the biggest lesson I’ve learned is that trying to minimize trauma, rationalize it, stigmatize it, and put on a stoic, but, erroneous public face only makes things worse.
Ultimately, it is a story of how I, first as a mother, and then, simply as myself, rose from the ashes of my own traumatic past, allowing healing to be at the forefront of my life, to become the humble hero of my own story.
All proceeds from our book go to this charity
Diana is the founder of her Trauma Talk Blog and Mindset Coaching programs.
She shares her stories of healing trauma, hope and inspiration through
speaking engagements, keynote address, monthly blogging, and seminars.
Diana is currently writing her memoir about the consequences of trauma and how they can force us to interpret our lives through unhealthy lenses.
The theme of her book is understanding how easily we put up our human coverings, create facades, display happy faces and elaborate veneers, hoping that all these theatrics will protect us, protect our families, and somehow make our pain and inner turmoil magically disappear.
This is a story of how by understanding these mechanics we can re-write trauma's silent narrative and heal and live rich and meaningful lives by becoming the hero of our own story.
