It can give you a great understanding of becoming your true self through trauma and life problems.

This book is not for everyone, and I will go into detail about what it is all about and who it can help. From there you can decide whether this is a good book for you.

About The Book.

This is an excellent book to use as a road map to getting to your authentic life, engaging in people, and living fully and as your authentic self even after you have significant setbacks or trauma and find yourself struggling to survive. People fall into survival mode after disappointments, trauma, and all stressful events in their life. When in survival mode, we often people please, depression, anxiety, and resentment.

Dr. Thema can show you how to find your voice and authentic self and reclaim your life as it should be, complete and adventurous with confidence and self-esteem. She has gone through this journey already and knows what it takes to succeed in life after a significant setback.

Healing starts with being able to speak freely, voice your thoughts, and express your wants and needs to fully engage in life and live it on your terms. Rather than shrinking from your difficulties, you can learn to be stronger from them, rise above your thoughts of not being good enough, and claim your life and all that it can give you. Learn how to live by your values, and live as your authentic self, no apologies, just you as you are and being engaged in life and the people in it.

“A wise and empathic guide to (re-)discovering and befriending who you really are, no matter how much you may have drifted away due to stressful and painful life events, including not having been seen or valued by others, outright racism, violence, injustice, and traumas of all kinds. Dr. Bryant provides many possible pathways back to experiencing your original wholeness.

Dr. Thema’s invitation in this book is grounding. She encourages us to release busyness and get present. The resounding message is we are not lost, we are home. This is a book that everyone needs to read.

Dr. Thema Bryant’s Homecoming is a masterwork. It is a book of wisdom and instruction, a life-changer that teaches us how to unlock the fullness of our heart.

This will lead to a fully engaged life with people, relationships, and the adventures of your life.
