“Disillusionment with the church of her upbringing separated Patricia Hoolihan from her family and some true north in her spirit, until, lying near death at twenty-seven, she opened to mystery and grace. With the humility of the seeker, she listened anew to her family of storytellers: the unforgettable Bernie and Gert, the high-flying Uncle Dan, the tales of her Irish ancestors. Here’s a spirit so open to beauty, humor, and love that you’ll feel lucky to know her. And you’ll feel that you do know her if you’ve ever lost faith in true north. Patricia Hoolihan knows how to tell a story. Her voice is artful and honest, and she’s brought a fierce consciousness to that slipperiest of subjects—the ties that both bind, and bind us to one another.
Born to Freak
A Salty Primer for Irrepressible Humans
Paperback ISBN: 0988289903
Anyone seeking humorous and playful ways to embrace and accept their differences will welcome life coach Sarah Seidelmann's refreshing alphabetical celebration of individuality and eccentricity. Through her personal work and work with clients and groups, she had made connections between attention-deficit disorder, high sensitivity, Asperger's syndrome, autism, addicts of every kind (sex, drugs, alcohol, gambling, shopping), the depressed, the anxious, the manic, the intense, change agents, black sheep, adrenaline junkies, irrepressibles, rebels, bohemians, life pirates, bad asses, artists, innovators, performers, comedians, and healers . . . and concludes that everyone is born to freak! She argues that not everyone is supposed to fit in, but that seeing things differently, ruffling feathers, and returning balance to the world and its communities is the real reason for our natural variety. Through the use of creative abilities, healing presences, and eccentric gifts, people can discover their own wondrous inner multitudes. And by confessing her own strangeness and sharing tales of epic freaky awesomeness, she hopes that other irrepressible humans might get the memo earlier in their lives that they, too, are born to freak.
