Guest blog with Sara Dagan author of Princess Maya and the Crystal Ball
First off I would like to say thank you to Sara for taking the time to do this guest blog here with us.
Hi everyone! I’m Sara Dagan, a writer and a Biographical Work consultant (Biographical Work is a spiritual coaching technique). My first book, Identifying The Hidden Thread, a Biographical Journey, was published in Israel in 2009. The book is a guide to drawing a life map based on the Biographical Work principles.
My second book Princess Maya & the Crystal Ball is also based on this method. However, this book is written as a fairy tale. It is also embedded with symbols from the Yoga Philosophy as well as other spiritual methods. The story is about Maya (illusion in sanskrit), a princess who has been challenged to discover her true self-identity via voyages in a crystal ball, a gift she mysteriously received from Prince Karma on Friday, November 2011 (11/11/11); The latter wished her a safe trip and asked her not to forget her princedom. However, her journey begins on planet Earth as a secretary in a giant cosmetic corporation where she soon forgets that she is a princess from another world.
The aim of the book is to draw an ‘external point of view’ on our society, particularly on the business world.
The book is the first of a trilogy. The second book, Princess Maya Meets Prince Karma, will come out soon.
The inspiration for the book was drawn mainly from people around me as well as my personal experience (I had worked as a secretary for many years).
I would like to take this opportunity (thank you Scott) to announce a special Project for Indie Authors:
Every second Sunday, my blog will provide a platform for a different indie writer to present their work, combined with a Biographical Coaching session. The aim is to help writers set and reach their goal, guided by their Biographical Life Map principles.
Throughout my years as a biographical coach, I have seen just how effective the Biographical Coaching technique is in many different areas of life. It was through conscious use of my own biographical principles that I was able to complete writing my first two books.
The central idea for the project is that following the initial Sunday internet coaching session—which will include an interview, a biographical analysis, and a coaching plan—your personal progress will be documented in each of our blogs: your blog will express your point of view as an independent writer in coaching; mine will express my point of view as a biographical coach and independent writer.
In order to achieve the best possible results, the coaching procedure will take place as needed, via Skype or other means.
You will benefit from the Biographical Coaching process and exposure as a writer, and I, too, will benefit from the exposure, as a biographical coach and indie author.
If you are an independent writer (even if you are writing your first book at the moment) and would like to take part in this project, you are invited to contact me via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and provide the following information:
• a short bio
• have you published a book/books?
• your age (an important detail in biographical coaching)
• how long have you been writing?
• the genre in which you write
• goals you would like to reach (your broader goals)
