This holiday season, consider giving a gift that will uplift and inspire all year long. Sheila M. Burke’s new book, BOOYAH! SPIRIT: 52 Ingredients For a Healthy Soul. Suffering Is Optional. (2011, Om Sweet Om Publishing) is a perfect example of an ideal inspirational holiday gift.
Booyah is a food that is prepared like a stew, but on a very large scale. It takes many cooks to prepare the food, and it is usually meant to serve hundreds or even thousands of people.
Wikipedia backs her up on that definition, too: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Booyah_(stew)
Wow, learn something new everyday! What a great analogy for creating a rich, spiritually nutritious life! With that definition in mind, Sheila’s book delves into each of the 52 ingredients to remind the reader of what really matters. Readers are invited to read it all in a weekend (what a great gift for a retreat!), take it in bits as needed, or patiently focus on one ingredient per week all year long.
There’s even a section where she mentions meeting me via Twitter and her experience with my free Six Steps to Powerful Affirmations eCourse. (Ingredient: Choice, pgs 147-151)
What I like about this book is that it is both exuberant and serves as a gentle reminder 365 days of the year. If you are a person who knows roughly what you can do to feel better, but often forget, you will want a copy of this book. Keep it by your bedside and pick it up daily, even to just read a paragraph or two. This recipe for a rewarding life will keep your mind spinning in a positive direction!
Deliberate Creators know the importance of surrounding oneself with positive and uplifting material – this book has a homemade feeling, seasoned with interesting quotes and personal photos, it’s sure to become a favorite gift to give and receive! It is available in paperback, Kindle, Nook, and various eBook formats at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, and Sheila’s ZENstore. Click here or the book graphic for more information.
