I want readers to find a sense of peace, spiritual and physical health and the capacity to elicit true joy from the heart after reading this book, she says.
CALLANDER, Ontario (PRWEB) April 12, 2013
In “Seeking Health and Joy: Overcoming Cancer and Embracing the Path of Yoga for Forgiveness and Peaceful Aging” (published by iUniverse), author Antonietta Francini’s new motivational book, readers are given the tools and tips needed to transform their life.
Readers are greeted with a book split in two. The first section of the book takes readers though Francini’s life, a small biography. They witness, with tear-jerking detail, her diagnosis of terminal cancer and post-traumatic stress disorder – a disorder produced by the horrors of World War II that the author endured as a teenager living in Italy.
The second part of the book exposes readers to the philosophy Francini used to guide her behavior throughout her life after being diagnosed. This philosophy, explained in an easy-to-understand format, will show readers the surgery, diet, yoga, meditation, visualization and breathing exercises she used to get her life back on track. She also explains the spiritual awakening she underwent in India that completely healed her soul and helped her understand the power of unconditional love.
An excerpt from ‘Seeking Health and Joy’:
“Emotion overcame me and I wanted to cry, but I could not, I was too weak even for that. She pressed my hand in sympathy, increased the intravenous dripping, and left. I plunged in deep sleep.
When I opened my eyes again, the early dawn was painting the sky with some grey and some pinkish. The dripping was running slow and all my body was aching, but my brain was alert because I had heard a voice.”
“I want readers to find a sense of peace, spiritual and physical health and the capacity to elicit true joy from the heart after reading this book,” she says.
