Book Review: Walking Through This

Walking Through This Book Review

Book: “Walking Through This: Harness the Healing Power of Nature and Travel the Road to Forgiveness” Sara Shulting KranzHarper Horizon, 2020.

Book Review by Mary Mikawoz

I found this book by Sara Shulting Kranz to be interesting. I found that her in-depth knowledge of trauma and PTSD is based on the fact that she has had to deal with it and go through it herself.

She understands more than just an empathetic listener. I won’t repeat her life story other than to say that she has gone through a lot. We all do but that is what is so wonderful about this book is that she gives you steps to deal with the trauma. 

Sara gives you written meditations that you can read and then practice. After you are done the guided meditation, she gives you some questions to consider as you take your information gleaned from this process and reflect upon any and all insights. She asks that you write about it.

I find it interesting she mentions a little fact that since 2012, the number of people meditating in this world has tripled. That is significant and shows that there is value in following through with inner work including listening to your intuition.

After learning the six steps, she asks you to forgive yourself, the perpetrator and also the world.

In the meantime, Sara has also implemented a number of practical techniques of walking in nature including retreats through the Grand Canyon or standup paddle boarding on water. From Sara doing her work, she is able to give practical advice and not that just of a psychologist or counsellor who doesn’t have any personal terms of reference and can only reflect back to you what they have heard without any concrete suggestions or relevant life event experiences or tasks to pursue.

I give this book a 4.25 out of 5 for being a useful book that was interesting to read. She is on social media like Instagram and Facebook. She has her own website as well.

Powerful Determination

Powerful Determination – Photography by Mary Mikawoz – Click image to see the bigger picture.

Now this is a photograph of powerful determination if I did see one. The green plant is thriving and continuing upwards and around to grow. Nothing is in its path is getting in its way as it weaves and turns to make a new route around windows, balconies and corners.

Up, up, up the walls of the building, the ivy grows in dogged persistence of its goal of surviving and in a state of being extant. We, as human beings, are often the same as we pursue our goals in life.

The ivy clings to life on the walls but it is smart enough to use tools and techniques at its disposal to grow.

With my art, I am often in a zen-type of mood and with my photography, I feel as if I am inspired by God or the Universe to capture these moments in time.

Book Review – Superpower

Book Review of The Self-Love Superpower

Book: “The Self-Love SuperpowerThe Magical Art of Approving of Yourself (No Matter What),” Tess WhitehurstLlewellyn Worldwide, Ltd., 2021.

Book Review by Mary Mikawoz

Book Available September 8, 2021

I was quite interested in recognizing how self-love could be a superpower simply by approving of myself/yourself. Overall, I found the author to be quite knowledgeable about many spiritual and psychological matters. I found she has incorporated many works from previous authors that I have read and whose books I have previously reviewed. It was nice to see these concepts being congealed in such a well-developed way.

I believe the author to be quite young as her references indicate someone of a younger age. This is not a problem other than many of the cultural and societal references she discussed were not in my sphere of knowledge or influence. So, for that reason, I would recommend this book for younger or middle-aged people.

One of the best insights or lines she has is, “I am choosing to need nothing, expect nothing, and even be nothing. And so I am open to everything.” She goes on to say how liberating it is to have this kind of thought. This is in line with Buddhist philosophy of non-attachment.

Overall, she does come up with some very good ideas but again, they are ones I have read in many other books but it is nice to see it collated here as an inclusive manner.

Tess also goes over chakras which for me was just a review. It seems most books I pick up nowadays include something about the chakra system. If you are new to this, then definitely read this.

Overall, I would give this book a 4 out of 5 based on the attempt to have a cohesive nature of spiritual philosophies and ideas in one book.

Sensual

Sensual Massage Book Review

Book: “Press Here! Sensual Massage for Beginners: Your Guide to Pleasure and Intimacy,” Sydney PriceQuarto Publishing Group – Fair Winds, 2021.

Book Review by Mary Mikawoz

Book Available July 27, 2021

For once, I am going to do a short review of a book. I would rather have this book speak for itself. The title clearly gives the subject-matter away – “Press Here! Sensual Massage for Beginners: Your Guide to Pleasure and Intimacy.”

It is a good first step in those who are either young beginners or who are older and may have had hang-ups from religious doctrine and societal upbringing. It is non-gender specific so many variations of massage before love-making can be learned and practiced to be inclusive of many combinations.

The book has a number of drawn images to explain important body parts.

It also includes a number of flow charts to explain the steps in how to proceed, however, as I was using an e-reader, they were hard to follow because of the restrictions of the page formatting. If you know you may have to go back and forth between pages to follow the arrows, you will understand it a lot easier.

I would recommend this book for people who are willing to explore their sexual experiences. 

I give the book a 3.75 out of 5 for attempting this delicate subject. However, I would have appreciated more information in explaining the actual various techniques of massage.
