A major premise of this book is that waking up – and staying woke – entails a unique responsibility for each of us if we are to survive.

A seasoned therapist and Neuro-Linguistic Programming master trainer has released her informative, entertaining and vital guide to building the skills needed to navigate today’s increasingly chaotic and technology-oriented world in a way that brings meaning and true value to one’s own life as well as the lives of others.

Through “Change Within, Change the World,” author Jane Rigney Battenberg, DCH, MA, aims to help readers reflect deeply and thoughtfully about their inner beliefs and values so that they can best align them with their larger purpose and move past the artificial limitations people often impose on themselves in their habitual daily lives.

“In current times, it is urgent that we move out of complacency to change within and change our world simultaneously,” Dr. Battenberg said. “A word in current usage among younger generations is ‘woke,’ increasingly used as a byword for being self-aware, questioning the dominant paradigm and striving for social and racial justice. A major premise of this book is that waking up – and staying woke – entails a unique responsibility for each of us if we are to survive.”

Peppered with stories, quotes and quirky musings, Dr. Battenberg’s book also provides readers with engaging exercises throughout that enable them to practice and perfect the insights established throughout the text.
