With kind expertise, Mare Chapman teaches mindfulness with an eye toward gender equity, guiding the reader toward more ease, empowerment and freedom. This special book is so needed for women, especially at this time!
This book is like having a mindfulness teacher at your side. It is informative and insightful—chock-full of techniques, meditations, and reflections that guide you to the self-awareness, self-acceptance, and self-confidence needed to be your authentic self. These are essential tools for all women.
Every so often a book comes along that has the potential to change your life…Unshakeable Confidence reflects the author’s profound understanding of the roots of women’s suffering and provides a wise and practical guide to rediscovering self-love. A pure gem of a book!
