Full Book Title: Good Blood: A Journey of Healing
Author Name: Irit Schaffer
Book Synopsis: What is Good Blood? That is the question Irit Schaffer has asked herself since she was a little girl curled up next to her father, Zoli, as he told her one miraculous story after another about his experiences in WWII. That is the question that follows Irit from her youth, through her days as a Physical Education teacher, and on to her career as a Physical Therapist and healer. The more she learns about the mind-body connection, the more awestruck she is by her mom and dad's amazing ability to heal from the traumas and tragedies of being European Jewsh during the second World War. How did they survive, stay optimistic, heal and transcend? How can we apply this to our lives, regardless of our age, ethnicity, upbringing or era? Whenever Irit asked her father these questions, he offered only one explanation: Good Blood. In this book, you will follow Irit on her journey across two continents and four generations. Her relationship with her mom, Alise, comes full circle, opening up a world of understanding and freeing them both from the stories of the past. On each leg of her journey, she encounters many voices of wisdom and finally figures out what her father meant.
Author Bio: Irit Schaffer is the daughter of Holocaust survivors, born in Israel, raised in Canada and a resident of California. In her San Francisco physical therapy office, clients come away with far more than a physical therapy treatment. Mind and spirit are also transformed as a process of self-healing she calls having good blood. Her new book, Good Blood, A Journey of Healing, tells the story of her awakening to the power of positive thought and the connection of mindset to our physical and emotional wellbeing. From her childhood fascination with her father's tale of healing from six gunshot wounds during the war to her own instinctive defiance of pessimistic medical prognoses, Irit's journey reveals a grateful and increasingly compassionate understanding of her roots as her keen intuitive gifts come to light. Today, Irit's physical therapy practice is an embodiment of those values as she integrates a variety of energy modalities - including craniosacral, myofascial and visceral therapies with vivid storytelling and deep listening. She activates healing with these real life parables, gently exposing the human condition and offering a pathway of self-acceptance that is as subtle and profound - as her adjustments of the subtle energies. In tandem, whether voiced or unspoken, her work helps remove energetic blocks expressed as self-sabotaging behaviors, pain and other frustrations. Her intuitive gifts heal and humanize and generously share her knowing of forgiveness, joy, heartbreak and the power of good blood.
