My book, Soul Care for Caregivers: How to Help Yourself While Helping Others, is now available.
~ Kirkus Reviews
"Susanne's clear, powerful prose is thoroughly informed both by her lifelong practice of caregiving and her comprehensive study of the field. I don't think there's a caregiver anywhere who won't benefit tremendously from reading this book, learning the self-nurturing practices she recommends, and living the authentic balance of self-care and caring for others that Susanne not only teaches but also embodies every day of her life."
~ Saniel Bonder, founder of Waking Down in Mutuality, author, Healing the Spirit/Matter Split and Ultimaya 1.0
"To keep caring for others, we must replenish ourselves; otherwise we start running on empty. In the warm and wise voice of someone who has been there herself, Susanne West offers many effective ways to take care of yourself from the inside out. Her book - full of her own qualities of deep kindness and practical wisdom - is a gift from the heart both to caregivers and to those they help and love."
~Rick Hanson, Ph.D., author of Buddha's Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love, and Wisdom
