On Fertile Ground: Healing Infertility

Dear Friend,

I found this book and had to share it. Millions of people worldwide suffer from infertility, which you may not realize is a biological, psychological, social and spiritual crisis that can take years to come to resolution. Helen Adrienne’s new book, On Fertile Ground: Healing Infertility is not only a explanation of the infertility experience, but it also puts the challenge in perspective, provides a mind/body program to deal with this adversity and reframes the situation in ways that allow for enormous growth.

We all know someone experiencing infertility. This holiday time was especially difficult for them. Those struggling with infertility will benefit enormously from this book—but so will their friends, family, doctors and therapists. On Fertile Ground will be a great gift to all who read it because it offers tools and teaches skills for coping with difficult situations.

Here’s what the author, Helen Adrienne, LCSW (psychotherapist) says: “This book springs from a well deep within me. It is my well but it is fed by a universal well originating from the pure waters of womanhood and motherhood. I wrote it from a tide of compassion for the infertile patient, with whom I have had the privilege of working for over three decades as a psychotherapist.

I called the book On Fertile Ground because our emotional nightmares are our teachers. If we look the infertility nightmare in the eye, it is fertile with possibilities for growth. Nightmares can free us to discover our higher potential. On Fertile Ground teaches readers how to build self-awareness, allowing them to respond to the enormous stress of infertility rather than react to it. Absence ofself-awareness can result in the loss of opportunity to adapt to and grow from this unwanted change.

I knew from my own nightmares that nurturing self-awareness was central to healing. My training and experience in mind/body therapy and clinical hypnotherapy has allowed me to guide patients in a mind/body quest with mind/body interventions. On Fertile Ground promises to open a path to enhanced growth and satisfaction in the midst of this difficult time.

I hope this book is beneficial to your and yours - please share it and enjoy the more than 80 wonderful downloadable bonsu gifts offered by Helne's friends and colleagues! Check it out: On Fertile Ground: Healing Infertility

Interview With Author Aline Soules

May 23, 2012 1) Please tell us about you and your book. What is the genre? What's the book about? (If you have any websites or other links, please post them). My book is a collection of prose poems and flash fiction pieces that both stand alone and work together to create a universal woman. Each piece begins with "A woman" and a verb and continues from there. My goal was to emphasize the complexity of a woman and communicate that to my readers. The pieces express a range of emotions, stretch from the elements of daily life to the fantastical, and connect a woman to the world. I begin with a piece that breaks everything apart, after which, each piece examines one aspect of the prism that I split. One of the best compliments I received about my book was from a male writer, Al Garrotto, who provided a blurb for my book, but later wrote an unsolicited review on his blog. He wrote: "Every man who cares about a woman at any level of relationship will com

On Writing Chase Scenes

By Carolyn Howard-Johnson Author of  The Frugal Editor,  the winning-est  in her award-winning HowToDoItFrugally Series of books for writers This article is excerpted from some editing I did for a writer of experimental fiction when I was on a Greater Los Angeles Writers Society panel writer of any genre can apply these suggestions to the chase, getaway, or high action scene in your script or manuscript before you send it to an agent or publisher or, better still, while you are writing the first draft.  Sometimes even the most fascinating, interesting and irresistible  detail can slow down the forward movement of your story. So as much as writers are told that detail is important, purge as much as you can from your action scenes and put it somewhere else or dribble it into narrative in other places in your manuscript. In the process, ask yourself if your reader really needs to know the color of the protagonist’s eyes. As important as detail is, some is better left to t
