Your host, author Janis Harper, reads from Chapter 16 in her visionary novel, Jonas and the Mountain: A Metaphysical Love Story. In this second segment of the series, “Press Pause with Anamika,” Janis Harper reads in the voice of the psychic teacher Anamika, from the chapters where she is giving her teachings and offering expressive arts activities to her students as a way to bring her teachings home. You’ll discover ways to engage with your own body’s healing, your past lives, your relationships, and other intriguing areas of self-exploration.

Anamika talks about the body and illness, and how the make-up of your body is constantly in flux, ever-changing. She offers a way for you to discover a wider meaning of your body difficulty or illness, to reveal the wound so it can be healed. If you choose to participate, all you need is pen and paper for writing and drawing.

Press pause in your day, in your life, and listen in to yourself. There are worlds waiting to be discovered.

Jonas and the Mountain: A Metaphysical Love Story is available in print and ebook at online bookstores everywhere.
