Your Life Matters is a guidebook for life. It outlines a spiritual but non religious approach to living life to the full by caring for ourselves physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
‘You are not here by accident. You are not a mistake. You are on the right planet. You are not here for the kids, the career, the mortgage, You are here to make the journey of your life via the kids, the career, the mortgage. The journey matters more than the destination’.
Stricken by leukaemia at the age of thirty-two, Petrea King confronted and came to accept the prospect of death. Yet the unexpected happened. She survived. Then she had to figure out how to live. Grounded in her many years’ work as a naturopath, educator, yoga and meditation teacher at her Quest for Life Foundation, Your Life Matters is a guide to establishing peace of mind, and living an authentic and fulfilling life.
An unexpected event such as an illness, tragedy or misfortune often provides the impetus for reflection, to assess what needs to be changed in our lives, and to begin that process.
In Your Life Matters Petrea encourages all of us to think about the way we live – what we believe, how we behave, how we treat out bodies – and to make positive changes. In today’s fast-paced world, we tend to search for happiness outside ourselves. We convince ourselves that if other people change, if we have more or better possessions, if life were more supportive – we believe that all of these things will make us happier.
In this wise, necessary and practical book, Petrea King teaches us how to live from the inside out rather than the outside in. By sharing her many principles and guidelines to developing our sense of self, treating our bodies right and adapting to life’s challenges, Petrea shows us the way to peace and all round health and wellbeing.
This book embodies the philosophy that underpins the programs and services of the Quest for Life Foundation and is recommended reading before attending a program.
