Book Title: Why Zarmina Sings: 18 Steps to Live and Learn Beyond Anxiety
Author Name: Therese Ayla Kravetz
Book Synopsis: This book is a collection of inspirational stories of how I overcame anxiety and helped others do the same.
Along with stories, each chapter shows an obstacle to learning and living in the present, and the tool to overcome it. Some tools include how to rewire your thought and emotional patterns, reclaim a more resonant voice, use improvisation, communicate powerfully, and be present to the moment where real opportunities lie.
Author Bio: I suffered from severe anxiety for years. Even though I wanted to express myself creatively, and I worked as an actor, a teacher, and writer, I had mental blocks and fears which inhibited my creative response, my ability to lead and to speak. As a professor, I had to learn techniques to bypass “anxious” brain, so I could be effective and present with my students.
My book, Why Zarmina Sings: 18 Steps to Live and Learn Beyond Anxiety, tells my story and the story of my students.
