Book of the month: Fierce Medicine by Ana T. Forrest

Book of the month: Fierce Medicine by Ana T. Forrest

?Our bodies tell our stories, and they always tell the truth when we listen. I want to help you hear your body’s story, then teach it to speak its truth.?

-from Fierce Medicine

An internationally recognized pioneer in yoga and emotional healing and the creator of Forrest Yoga, Ana Forrest shares her personal story and offers techniques and exercises to help you uncover your own warrior’s heart.

In her powerful, inviting, and often funny voice, Ana Forrest reveals how to stalk fear and break free from it instead of running from it, how to access your intuition to help you uplift your spirit, how to be in tune with your body and connect to its natural healing abilities and become your own healer, how to cope with setbacks, and ways to connect to your inner wisdom.

One of the most moving stories in the book tells of when twelve-year-old Ana reached out and caught her mother’s hand, preventing her from hitting her for the first time in her life. At that moment Ana made a decision to stop living in fear and instead to face and stalk it.

Ana?s abusive childhood led her to develop fear training and later invent Forrest Yoga.

As a Reiki Master, I believe that the real healer is the body. We all have natural healing abilities, and when we get centered and connect with our inner wisdom, those abilities are easy to access. One of the most enjoyable and effective tools I use personally and also teach is creating a morning routine as a way of achieving balance.
Ana recommends a daily practice of sitting and aligning your chakras, something I can relate to.

?Meditate to bring your attention to what lights you up,? says Ana. She then takes you through a process of balancing your chakras and setting an intention for your day.
Ana shares yoga practices and yoga poses in her book as a way to listen to your body and release energy that is stuck in certain areas.

I love how she teaches you to breathe into the specific area that hurts and ask a question like: ?What part of my life is stuck here?? or ?What am I carrying here?? These practices help you to connect your inner spirit with your outer body

I am honored to be interviewing Ana Forrest as one of our experts in the 2013 Wow Year Telesummit, and I hope that her wisdom and teaching will help as many women as possible to heal their bodies and ignite their spirits.

As Martha Beck, bestselling author of Finding Your Own North Star, says:

?One of the most compelling, inspiring, and eloquent stories you will ever read. I absolutely could not put it down and I’m thrilled for all the other readers who will be captivated by Ana?s storytelling and wisdom.?

Personally, I echo Ms. Beck?s review, and I encourage you to pick up a copy of Fierce Medicine soon and be transformed.
