Dr. Ani Kalayjian is living proof that there is a reason people from all over the globe choose to immigrate to America. It was her desire to come to this country with the hopes and the dreams of being free, to receive a good education, find a good occupation, and exercise her human rights. While transcending adolescence and gender discrimination in her former country, she has found a higher level of caring and healthy practices for the prevention of disease and promotion of holistic health, educating the mind and the heart. Her analogy of peeling an onion describes how she found her inner core, the gem, the jewel and the diamond that is her.
Forget Me Notis a book about your self-care. Everyone seems to think they have been caring for themselves for a very long time. This book will guide you to another level of caring which will support and enrich the healthy practice that you already have. It will aid you in prevention of disease and promotion of holistic health, educating the mind and the heart, and finally, sharing concepts like Horizontal Violence and Generational Transmission of Trauma, which are integral parts of self-care. Remember that healing is just like peeling an onion. The next layer may burn your eyes, cause a temporary distress, but as you continue taking layer and layer off, you find the core inside. Then you find the gem, the jewel and the diamond that is you. If you want to feel, experience, or see your inner-authentic healing gifts and wisdom, then this book is especially for you.
