A Book Can Save A Life.

That's the premise of Sara Connell's work as a writer and coach who helps other writers with the dream of changing the world. This Genius Podcast episode is a conversation between Sara and me that touches on many topics related to writing, Brain Dance, personal vision, the pandemic, neuroplasticity, and the demons that keep you from fulfilling your true purpose.

It's filled with insights and tools for life, getting past unthinkable trauma, symptoms of PTSD, how neurofeedback can also save a life, daily routines of peak performers, and doing what you are truly meant to do.

After getting a supportive response to my medical memoir at the Harvard Medical School Workshop on Writing and Publishing for Health Care Professionals in 2019, I knew I'd need some serious support to help polish the draft and get Brain Dance to a publisher. At the same time, Sara Connell started the Thought Leader Academy to support writers. That all felt like a huge dream. but I was motivated and signed on. Sara and her team have helped me develop the next steps and move my project along to its launch which is coming up on May 11. If you'd like to attend our Brain Dance Book launch event register here for free.

Grateful for Sara's help and inspiration. Also, if you want to be my guest and attend her upcoming virtual writer's retreat on May 12-14 for free, just send me a note and I'll send more details. Enjoy!
