Book Praise

“I’m filled with admiration for the dedication you’ve made not only to the craft of writing but to the art of being."

Betsy Rapoport, Editor, New York


I enjoyed this book so much. It is a self-help book, also for people who don’t like self-help books, which is, in the end, the best type of self-help.

Lara’s book is beautifully written and her unique voice shines through right from the start. It’s equal parts humorous and poignant but always unflinchingly honest. It is not only a cancer survivor’s story but a powerful story of her inner journey, which is the journey we all have in common, whether we have cancer or not.

Lara's knowledge is no longer conceptual. It is no longer borrowed knowledge from spiritual teachers or teachings. Lara has taken a dive into herself in a true and deep way. Her writing reflects her special inner light of awareness, a light that many can benefit from its clarity in how to live with true purpose and in happiness.

This book is so relatable, which is why it draws so much connection to the reader. I didn't want it to end.
