Metamorphosis – One Woman’s Journey to Find Serenity & Empowerment

Metamorphosis- One Woman’s Journey to Find Serenity & Empowerment is a deeply vulnerable account of Sue Relihan’s journey as she attempts to find love and success. Sue shares how she became accustomed to paying a high price for acceptance. Sue intertwines her pursuit of professional success and her quest for love from a Native American man who could not openly acknowledge his love for her to his closest friends and family. When she and Michael were alone their relationship was magical, spiritual and deeply fulfilling, but ultimately it represented her invisibility and her willingness to pay for love.

In the same way at the height of her career, Sue was considered a national expert on law enforcement policy, but she never completely fit in, spending most of her career hiding behind a façade she created for her own protection. When Sue got sick in 2009, all of her worlds collided and she could no longer live life in the same way. It was time to decide if she wanted to wither inside her cocoon or choose to begin to live and thrive. Metamorphosis shows how you can find love and success – at any age!

Metamorphosis Self-Care Workbook

This workbook is designed to be an accompaniment to both the memoir and her webinar series Metamorphosis – A Journey To Enhance Self-Care. During her own healing she found that self-care can be done in the small moments of life—taking a deep breath to reconnect to the present moment, meditating, cranking up music and dancing, or lying on the floor with the sun beaming in the window in the dead of winter. Self-care does not need to include an expensive spa vacation, nor does it need to take hours a day. It’s about making a commitment to yourself to find activities that feed your spirit. Sue created this simple workbook, designed to list one act of self-care per page, with a lined page for your notes adjacent to it for you to create your own self-care routines.
