TAZ’s debut book, Whispers From The Earth, was absolutely not the tome she intended to launch herself into the publishing world with. Her first book was always going to be Unleash Your Awesome – packed with tools and guidance for living life and business to the full, with energy, enthusiasm, confidence, balance and inner calm.
The universe had other ideas. For many years, Taz had been using meditation and a deep-rooted spiritual belief system to find inner calm and guidance; sometimes the guidance would come in the form of stories. It’s well documented that indigenous cultures and spiritual leaders from all times across the globe have used storytelling as a powerful medium to convey teachings and wisdom (read more on the science of storytelling here) and, over time through meditations and dreams, Taz had built up a robust collection of tales – all with teachings beautifully woven between the words.
One day back in 2013, Taz received guidance to send some of the stories she’d recorded to a publisher. She dismissed the ‘voice’ several and carried on with her work, but it kept coming back, stronger each time, and even providing the name of a publisher to approach. Within a week of following the guidance and contacting the publisher she hadn’t even realised existed before, she had a publishing deal from Moon Books and a contract to produce Whispers From The Earth.
Whispers From The Earth officially launched in April 2016, complete with a selection of teaching stories from Taz, a few from some of her spiritual development students and guidance chapters for people wanting to use meditation and journey techniques to channel teaching stories of their own.
Guess what? It’s packed with tools and guidance for living life and business to the full, with energy, enthusiasm, confidence, balance and inner calm… you might even call it the spiritual version of #UnleashYourAwesome.
Within a week of launch, Taz’s debut book was listed as an Amazon best seller.
The rest is history. Whispers From The Earth is still selling and still receiving five star reviews, and Unleash Your Awesome (a second publishing deal with US-based Motivational Press) is due out soon – as well as More Whispers From The Earth! A fourth title – Hippy Shit – which looks at balancing business with a more spiritual / holistic life path, has also received interest and been optioned. Watch this space!
Whispers From The Earth is available from all good booksellers and, of course, Amazon.
