My Kinda Magik is a modern life autobiographical journey infused with ‘body, mind and Spirit’ new age learning and wisdom. For the most part it is upbeat and lively...like the author!
This story - in many ways a journey in books - is a unique take on pop psychology complete with “how to” instructions on using and integrating the resources and learning from the popular self-help / body, mind and Spirit bookshelves, based on the author’s own ongoing research and application of the techniques and tools, as well as the outcomes she achieved. She reveals what works for her like affirmations, visualisation, meditation and journal writing as well as sharing new resources – including the Weekly Goals Journal - she has developed and uses herself both personally, and in her InspirAction Coaching / Personal Empowerment Business.
The book charts the personal development and self-discovery of the author Maria Bourke from her encounter with “The Celestine Prophecy” by James Redfield in Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam in the early 90s right up to Summer 2016. The story maps out the real unfolding of Maria’s life - dealing honestly with recession Ireland, loss and heartache, the failure of two businesses and having to re-invent herself and the necessary soul searching, personal transformation and awareness this requires. She explores many avenues to heal her past, address her weaknesses and create a new empowered version of herself and a more sustainable “at peace” life which ultimately leads her to reveal and embrace her authentic self and real happiness.
Review by Grace Brady, Writer, Photographer and Foodie behind http://www.busylittlefoodie.blogspot.ie
"Dream big, dream strong, dream happy. But above all, dream...and let your dreams become your reality". Maria Bourke's compelling book is a refreshingly honest and open account of her life and her dedication to focusing on what inspires her and makes her truly happy. Learning from her mistakes and successes throughout this journalised account of her life, it would be impossible not be absorbed by the sheer vastness of the difference between her life as a workaholic, successful business woman and the focused, life affirming, creative and passionate person she is today. It is not simply Maria's truthful, considered and often times hilarious accounts of pivotal moments in her life that make My Kinda Magik such a pleasure to read. Her ability to relay personal pitfalls, natural confusion over her goals and how she overcame her doubts about her career, family focus and life direction, speaks so readily to all of us.
Maria is the kind of heart centred, honest life-enthusiast you would wish for in a friend. Reading her book is akin to sitting next to an old friend, cup of tea in hand, feeling nourished, inspired and humbled to hear of her life challenges and the adventure it all turned out to be.
If you are searching for inspiration, guidance and a truly honest account of how to focus your life on what you love, to dream big and enable those dreams to become reality, this book is for you.
