Sensitivity is not always simply having a stressful response in the mind, body or emotions to situations one encounters. Many sensitives are reading the energy around them by feeling it in their body. This activates a stress response because it disrupts their own senses. Energy sensitives, often navigate life not aware of this. Relearning trust means understanding that a knot in the stomach or anxiety for “no reason” is an empathic sensitivity trying to get their attention. Tame Your Energy Sensitivity holds the secrets to self-care for sensitive people; how-to set healthy boundaries and be a happy, healthy empath.

On Fragile Waves is the haunting story of a family of dreamers looking for home in an unwelcoming world. Firuzeh and her brother Nour are children of fire, born in an Afghanistan fractured by war. When their parents decide to leave, they spin fairy tales of their destination, the mythical land and opportunities of Australia. As the family journeys, they must rely on fragile and temporary shelters, strangers both mercenary and kind, and friends who vanish as quickly as they’re found. This exquisite magic realist debut traces one girl’s migration from war to peace, loss to loss, home to home.
