This past Saturday I had a chance to conduct a telephone interview with my friend and colleague, NY Times Best-Seller author, Sonia Choquette, of Chicago.

Sonia’s new book, Walking Home: A Pilgrimage from Humbled to Healed, (Hay House, Inc. 2014) was released on September 30, 2014.

I interviewed Sonia about her new book for the column I write for Positive Impact Magazine which is also called Out There On The Edge of Everything®

My interview with Sonia will appear in the next issue of Positive Impact Magazine and I will let everyone know when this issue is published.

I first met Sonia in 2002 in a bookstore called Transitions in Chicago, that closed in 2008.  In fact,  I was able to meet and develop friendships with many Hay House authors and other authors who gave lectures at Transitions.

Sonia is an an internationally recognized spiritual teacher, six-sensory consultant and transformational visionary guide.  

She is known for her humor and her “adept skill in quickly shifting people out of psychological and spiritual difficulties, and into a healthier energy flow.” 

Sonia helped me with those things and many others during my own life challenges in the classes I took from her and my personal interactions with her and her family.

Sonia has helped countless people world-wide.  Yet, within the space of three years, Sonia had suffered the unexpected death of her father and brother, saw her marriage implode and then be let down by a number of her trusted colleagues. Her own life was falling apart and she had reaching a tipping point.

In order to regain her own spiritual footing, Sonia turned to the age-old practice of pilgrimage and set out to walk the legendary Camino de Santiago, an 820-kilometer trek over the Pyrenees and across northern Spain.

Her new book shares the details of her experience and her walk back to a personal place where she can now love herself and others more unconditionally and compassionately share the pain of the human experiences she endured in her own life with others.

What is your edge of walking back home?

Are you the strong one in your family?

Are you a leader in your profession?

How did you react or will you react when you face challenges in your own life?

Do you have the ability to walk back home as Sonia did?

Even if you never go to Spain to walk the Camino?

I bet you can.  Just like me.  One step at a time.

Out There on the Edge of Everything®…
