Overview

Ancient Methods of Healing Bring You Closer to the Other Side

“Dr. Paula Petry shares her extremely personal and fascinating journey in A Mother's Courage to Awaken, a book that, regardless of your personal experiences or beliefs, is bound to resonate with some aspect of your life.” ­– Gloria Estefan

A Mother's Courage to Awaken tells a story about the love and loss of a child―and the healing quest it initiated. On her search for inner peace, professor Paula Petry, PhD looks to re-emerging ancient methods that nurture positive emotional health, mental wellness, and spiritual well-being.

A story about death and resurrection. What does this mean? To nurture a life? And what if that life is your own? When Dr. Petry loses her daughter Alexandra, she looks for ways to connect with loved ones in the afterlife. Along her journey, she encounters a literal and figurative resurrection, a transcendence of time and space, and a life transformed beyond whatever was imagined possible.

Emotional health and mental wellness from the other side. A Mother’s Courage to Awaken confronts grief, love, and loss with holistic practices and alternative health medicine. Inside, you’ll find healing modalities outside of traditional medicine like sound healing, plant medicine, Akashic Records, shamanism, acupuncture, and healing mantras. With these ancient methods and different forms of energy medicine, join Dr. Petry to:

  • Re-discover the power of prayer, intention, and the imagination
  • Re-direct our thoughts to what we want rather than what we don’t want
  • Relinquish the illusion of control

A Mother's Courage to Awaken speaks to women wishing to awaken to their inner truth and power, and readers of Many Lives, Many Masters; Proof of Heaven; Journey of Souls; or What Dreams Have Come.
