A slyly hilarious, compassionate look at anxiety in America, WE’RE GONNA BE OKAY is about finding the courage to face who we are—and who we want to be.

Many times we are told that there is no Soul, that there is no one inside our head or anywhere else, or that there is a Soul somewhere in our body. Where exactly is this Soul and what is a Soul? This is the Way To Be Okay answers these questions and more. Some encourage us to get out of the head, and move into the body, most notably, the heart. The author has allowed the experiences of feeling the movement of her Soul (self) from her head into her heart, solar plexus and other places of her body, and none of them made sense. She now sits comfortably in her head and has been able to expand her whole spiritual and etheric “beingness” into her whole body. She could not have done that without seeking the truth of who she is through knowing and acknowledging that she is able to expand into this physical body that she has used for a lifetime. She had to become aware of all that she was, first and foremost from her head. She had to understand what was in her head, how the brain and all the brain connectors worked in unison. She realized that she was the driver of the brain and by extension the body. We begin our life in the top and middle of the head, where you enter to take over the body once your mother has finished forming your body for you. This is where it begins from the instant you are born, and when that soft spot closes over you are securely in there for the preset period of your life. You grow up and learn to follow your particular path. Take the plunge into reading this book and let it help you open up greater understanding of what you are. You are Soul, you are everlasting, and you are Okay.
