Getting To Center: Pathways to Finding Yourself Within the Great Unknown
“Picking up on where How Not To Be Always Working left off, Getting To Center is an empathetic offering to those who looking for a road map for finding their way back to equilibrium. This book meditates on endings, grief and joy, ease, hope, addiction, and beginnings, pairing Marlee’s own experiences and wisdom with practical exercises and tools for creating harmony and understanding within the natural changes of life.
In her own constant shifting, improviser and writer Marlee Grace has found ways to pivot within her career, while still maintaining constant threads throughout. She has developed practices that have supported her through opening and closing multiple businesses, a divorce, several cross country moves, choosing sobriety, coming out as queer, and more.
Essential for anyone who feels overwhelmed and anxious about these unpredictable times, this gorgeous, thoughtful book is a hand to hold to feel less alone, and a guide to cultivating resources we can replenish and depend on in ourselves.”
