Bouncing Forward offers groundbreaking research and more than 60 tried-and-true methods to turn adversity into opportunities. Author Michaela Haas, PhD, presents twelve inspiring stories from survivors of cancer, addiction, PTSD, loss of mobility, loss of a loved one, and childhood abuse to teach you how they used their trauma to grow in five areas of life. This book will help you become more resilient and mindful in the face of life’s inevitable setbacks. The author immersed herself into her subjects’ lives, and even interviewed the late Dr. Maya Angelou, who shares with us how her childhood trauma led her into a life of meaning. Flight surgeon Rhonda Cornum shares how she found a new purpose after being captured in Iraq; renowned autistic pioneer Temple Grandin how she overcame crippling panic attacks; and famed jazz guitarist Coco Schumann who played for his life in Auschwitz speaks about how he refuses to be defined by his experience of the Holocaust. In Bouncing Forward, Michaela Haas draws upon powerful storytelling, psychology, history, and twenty years of Buddhist practice to reshape the way we think of crisis. You’ll walk away with five powerful practices and a deep understanding of the strength of your spirit.
