Your body is like a hard drive. Every event that you have ever experienced to which you have not surrendered or made peace with either by gratitude or by forgiveness remains stuck in your body. This stagnant energy hinders all attempts at life change as it is not in the mind but in the body and is connected to the subconscious on a deep cellular level. This book shows you a surprising easy way to go into the body and allow all stored energy to pass, eventually reaching states on non duality, forgiveness, gratitude and surrender. The book is designed as a course which when completed sets in motion our natural ability to surrender and allow responses of attachment and aversion to pass automatically without any effort, the Holistic Creation and Focus Zone Chi Gong System is for those more interested in living life to the fullest then for those who want to live their stories.

And who better to road-trip across the country with than Lil's BFF, Josh. But here's the thing: Lil loves Josh. And Josh doesn't want to "ruin" their amazing friendship. Josh has a car and his dad's credit card. Lil has her cellphone and a hunch about where Penny is hiding. There's something else she needs to find: Are she and Josh meant to be together?
