In Gratitude

Dear Readers,

Wishing you Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, and blessed times in the New Year!

In January, I will have a very exciting announcement to share with you. . . .

And yet, times are bittersweet. Loved ones have passed, and within our memories and mourning, we appreciate life. I was blessed with the sweetest gift to California to visit with family, and we were four generations together. And yet, for many of us, the world seems to be going backwards, forwards, and staying still, all at the same time and with more intensity. It’s always a balancing act, isn’t it?

I received this via email a week ago, and it fit for me this year. It speaks to uniting our inner and outer work as individuals and what we can create together from our sacred inner embers. (A hanukkiah is a menorah, the candleholder for eight nights of Chanukah and a shamus, the candle used to light them all.)

“When we light the Hanukkiah, we call up the miracle. In life, we call on our might. In yesterday’s world, we witnessed God’s outstretched hand. In today’s world, we extend our own. We’ve been trained to strategize, criticize, hyper-intellectualize. We understand how to do, work toward, achieve. And when we’re challenged, we damn well know how to get boots on the ground and fight for what we know to be true and just. We’re good at being Maccabees. But in these dark times, when we see our reality unraveling before us, a part of us yearns for something more to believe in.

This year may we tap into the two sides of Hanukkah: our ability to act and our capacity to believe. May we grasp our power to shape the world, and be in touch with our longing for the Creator of the world. May we continue to pray with our feet, and learn how to pray with our heart. Amidst our communal effort to combat the impending darkness, may we embrace the equally hard work of cultivating a felt-sense-deep in our kishkes-of the sacred fire within each of us, the burning blaze we become when we band together, and the Source of light, life, and love that suffuses all.” —Rabbi Jonathan Bubis

May you be and feel love, loved, healthy, and safe!

In gratitude,
Jan

My Book Proposal Won A Prize!

It snowed the other day and looks like someone left me a message.

My book proposal won a contest! THE HEADACHE HEALER’S HANDBOOK: A Holistic, Hands-on Somatic Self-care Program for Migraine Relief and Prevention was awarded the Balboa Press self-publishing Master Package (value: $8149). It’s awesome!

I feel amazed and grateful that this company, founded by the inspiring author and healer Louise Hay, “got” my writing, my book, and my work. It feels wonderful to be seen and received in this way.

The Writer’s Workshop spurred me on to refining and updating my proposal and finishing and tightening up my book, which is nearing completion. Thank you to Hay House Writer’s Workshop and congratulations to my fellow prize winners.

I’m so excited to bring empowered headache and migraine self-care to the world to help the millions who suffer. Stay tuned!

The official announcement from Hay House:

We were delighted with the response to our very first online Writers Workshop course contest, our inaugural group of graduates who took the course last year submitted so many fresh ideas. Our Editorial team read over 100 proposals [from 1400 attendees] and finally picked Romanian author, Dr. Dragos, as the overall winner of the Hay House contract for his book, The Pursuit of Dreams: Humble Beginnings, Real Life Stories, Wishes Fulfilled.

We also awarded a Balboa Press Master Package to Jan Mundo Headache Coach from New York, for her book, The Headache Healer’s Handbook: A Holistic, Hands-on Somatic Self-care Program for Migraine Relief and Prevention. The Inspire Balboa Press Package goes to Jessica Baker, LAc from Colorado, for her book, Plant Songs.

It takes so much courage and commitment to complete a full book proposal and send it in for consideration. We are really aware of this and want to applaud all of you for taking such a big step on your publishing journey. Please don’t stop now, you have already done the hardest part! As you will have learned from the course, there are many ways to get a book out into the world these days, the right path is waiting for you.
