“The book speaks to living with a higher level of consciousness and how we can achieve that in our lives,” Petra says. “It helps others to see what they already know to be true inside.”

Sharing both her struggles and her joys, author Petra Valica opens up about her life in her new book, “While Sipping Green Tea: One Woman’s Reflections on Awakening” (published by AuthorHouse), the first book in a planned series.

After years of climbing the corporate ladder, getting over a failed marriage and struggling to find the answers to her purpose in life, a unique dare from a friend changes everything. As a result of taking a step out of the ordinary, Petra came into contact with a spiritual guide, Ethan, who helped her to pursue lessons in enlightenment. Through boxing lessons and while sipping green tea, Ethan shows Petra a new way of seeing which gives unexpected insights into her own life and spiritual path. The wisdom from these encounters are shared in each chapter as lessons to awakening.

The chapters include themes such as sadness, struggle, celibacy, Tantra and selflessness. Each chapter contains a lesson that readers can actively practice in their own lives. Through her own story, Petra hopes that her readers will find their own inspiration within their personal path towards awakening.

An excerpt from “While Sipping Green Tea”:

“I’d been caught in a sort of eternal hangover, with my true consciousness covered snugly under the warm security blanket of my ego. Sitting under the Bodhi tree cross-legged with closed eyes and smiling blissfully, was just a nice story. It was all far too advanced for an ordinary soul like me. Or so I thought.”

“The book speaks to living with a higher level of consciousness and how we can achieve that in our lives,” Petra says. “It helps others to see what they already know to be true inside.”
