What began as depression, a car accident, and a series of captivating dreams turned into a therapeutic spiritual growth spurt and a an inspiring self-help book. “This Way Up” by Patti Clark equips readers with seven powerful tools for unleashing their creativity and effectively transforming their lives.
A 10-year process for the author, “This Way Up” is written in two parts. Part one tells the story of Kat, a woman wallowing in the discomfort of empty nest syndrome, a pain she alleviates through drinking. As a result of alcohol-impaired driving, Kat finds herself in the hospital. Grateful for her survival and that she didn’t hurt anyone during her car accident, or that she was arrested, Kat is visited nightly by an entity called Gaia, who delivers guidance and hope to the patient during her recovery.
The story continues after Kat’s hospital release, as she relies greatly on assistance from her sister Kenya and BFF Jess to help her disseminate the information that Gaia gives her. In the end, Kat learns to let go of her pain, express gratitude, and release her creativity in the most cathartic ways.
Part two of the book takes what Kat has learned (and we can pretty much assume that Kat is the author herself) and creates an easy-to-use workbook that includes 12 weeks of daily exercises and lots of journaling. Like Kat, you, too, can achieve an inner sense of peace, reclaim your life, and allow your creativity to expand in the most unexpected ways.
Clark speaks to the woman who thinks it’s too late to start a new life. She offers optimism, insight, and a light at the end of a very dark tunnel. Whether you suffer from empty nest syndrome, divorce, the loss of a loved one, midlife crisis, or all of the above, “This Way Up” could be your key to uncovering a new journey toward a better life. You can heal. You can discover a richer existence. And this book is precisely what you need to help get you there.
