About the Author

Claudia Olivié writes and teaches on wellness and self-care, helping to guide people to their own ways of caring deeply for themselves. She especially loves teaching people how to create a "user's manual" for themselves, so that they (and their loved ones) know exactly what brings out the best in them, with a lot more ease - and how to troubleshoot when things go sideways.
