“Just when I thought I had it all together, I was reminded that life and living is a continuous process of evolving into my destiny. After reading, Putting Down the Paddles: 30 Days to Living in the Flow, I realized I must learn to slow down, listen, really listen and allow myself to open up and receive the influences around me that are required to mold me into a beautiful vessel. What a comfort to know that I can begin this process at any time, and if I give myself 30 days to meditate and focus on the lessons in Putting Down the Paddles, more great things are bound to happen in my life.’”

“The lessons seemed simple and a little random at first but as I breathed deeply and contemplated each lesson each day, I was surprised how the lessons built on one another to shed light on areas of my awareness I had not realized were hiding in darkness. This book helped me to free myself from old beliefs and expectations that no longer serve me, allowing the joy of life to flow.”

“I have found Putting Down the Paddles a very useful tool. It’s deceptively simple but each time I read the book, it takes me to a deeper level of contemplation and understanding. With every read something new reverberates with me – an idea that I understand in a deeper way, something I am ready to hear and maybe wasn’t before.”

~Nan Carson, Labor Relations Manager

As a business woman running a healing arts practice, I hopped on the opportunity to read Susan’s book. I needed to learn viable tools that would move me from "fighting to survive" to "thriving in peace. I am forever grateful for all the gifts that were given to me in this book. "Living in the flow" provides the lessons, a-ha moments and opportunities to just "be". In today's busy world, I welcome the chance to simply "be in the moment".
