Waking Up with Nora

Every new life  has the potential  to make life new.

"Waking Up with Nora is a powerful story about how when life throws us curve-balls,

they can serve to teach and inspire us, at any age, to reconsider our lives."

Mike Jaffe, author of The Human Wake Up Call.

From visions of a dream-come-true to the unimaginable nightmare of epilepsy and radical brain surgery at five months old, Nora’s story entwined with her grandmother’s awakenings is a memoir of love, re-connection and the supreme affirmation that we’re never too young or old to become who we were meant to be.

Tanya Detrik's awareness and practice of the power of perspective was put to the test on New Year's Eve 2018 when the love of her life and partner of 26 years unexpectedly and suddenly died in front of her.  In the days and months that ensued, above all else, she knew she had to call on the power of her perspective to survive the experience and the future. 

Good Grief, what you think, you feel, is a refreshing collage of story, emotions, commentary and musing on the many facets of grief and how what we choose to think influences how we feel.
