HOW IT HAPPENED
ABOUT THE BOOK
Fear Less: Conquering the Demons of Mental Purgatory intimately chronicles my downward spiral into debilitating panic attacks and agoraphobia that began on my twenty-first birthday; a mental illness that sequestered me inside of my home for over a year. When Western medicine failed, my Apache/Yaqui mother took me to the Pala Indian reservation to see a Medicine Man, who cured me that night in a sweatlodge ceremony, which was nothing short of a modern day exorcism.
Fear Less: Conquering the Demons of Mental Purgatory goes on to detail a labyrinthine journey that explores my road to healing using various Western and Eastern modalities, conventional therapists, twelve-step programs, and spiritual healers, all of whom helped me learn how to deprogram the emotional conditioning that resulted from childhood trauma and a series of losses, and to instilled tools to reprogram new life conditions and achieve breakthroughs that re-awakened my true self. It is a gritty inner exploration into the darkness that lived inside me, and how I challenged and re-framed my mind to face those inner demons to cultivate new life conditions.
