There's nothing safe or comfortable about having your life overturned. Whether the upheaval comes in the form of a world-shaking event or something as intimate as a broken relationship, a medical emergency, or personal loss - the result leaves us feeling disturbed and unsure of what to do next. Yet what if such moments of crisis are actually gateways to expanding our consciousness and finding more freedom than we ever thought possible? At these times, we enter what Valerie Gangas calls "deep shift."
For Valerie, her own deep shift came after she lost her mother. In her struggles with depression and despair, she became fascinated by what comes next when our lives are overturned. "There's no 'back to normal,'" she says. "Deep shifting is a process that means letting go of the person you thought you were. I believe these times compel us to turn to what we're all here to do - wake up, transform, and come home to our true selves."
With In Deep Shift, Valerie walks you through the journey, from the moment when shift really hits the fan to your return to the world as a changed human. Here she offers research-driven insights, stories, practices, and journal exercises to help you embrace change as a gateway to awakening, reframe the hard times - and ultimately learn to become a "natural shifter" who can flow gracefully with whatever life throws at you.
