Reawaken to the joy of being alive. Shifting Shorelines reconnects us to our true center—that place where wisdom dwells. Author Terry Helwig opens our eyes to a landscape of fierce beauty that resides both within us, as well as without; she unveils a sense of wonder about our place in this vast universe. Experience the solace of following the phases of the moon, the curve of a shell, and the solstice path of the sun.

Shifting Shorelines begs to be placed on a bedside table, where Helwig’s unique and compelling messages to her younger self, can be referred to again and again. These wisdom-filled messages, at the end of each chapter, explore how the human heart, tested by time and adversity, blossoms and ripens. Inspired by years of living beside the sea, Helwig divided the book into three sections—Ebb Tide, Slack Tide, and Flood Tide—which metaphorically refer to times of loss, equanimity, and fullness.

“The dance of these perpetual tides in our daily lives,” writes Helwig, “continually shifts the shoreline of who we are, and, more importantly, who we will become.

About the Author

Terry Helwig is an award-winning author whose new book, Shifting Shorelines, has been praised as a twenty-first century Gift from the Sea. Terry’s wise, lyrical, and heartwarming prose reveals a deep thinker who finds meaning and correlation between both her inner and outer worlds. A naturalist at heart, with a master’s degree in counseling psychology, Terry says nature and synchronicity have been two of her most profound teachers.

Her favorite pastime, combing the beach of a Florida barrier island, is a dream come true—especially for a child whose turbulent upbringing threatened to overwhelm her. Terry recounts her early struggle to keep hope alive in her coming-of-age memoir Moonlight on Linoleum, which won Elle Magazine’s 2012 Grand Prix Nonfiction Book of the Year.

Two of the brightest lights in Terry’s sky are her husband Jim and her daughter Mandy.
