Diana Rowan's beautiful book will be an invaluable guide and inspiration for anyone who has felt exiled from their creative self.

When you look at Diana, she always looks so composed, so sure of what she’s doing. And yet her story of how she was trembling, and how she overcame the fear she felt—that’s what really got my attention. So many of us have to show up and look polished and professional. It’s nerve-wracking to get to that level of composure. What’s really useful about this book is that Diana has been there and she shows you the pathway to creativity and feeling safe in your own space. Using the power of past wisdom and present illumination, she gives the reader a way to find their way back to who they really are.
