Dying into a new life

April 25th, 2016

Dr. Yaz Bolkan was born in Istanbul, Turkey in 1969 and immigrated to Canada in 1990. Her expertise crosses many fields as, alongside her doctorate in engineering, university teaching certificate, professional psychotherapy training and philosophy of science schooling, she studies energy healing, ancient wisdom and creative writing.

“Life began for real after I surprisingly survived terminal cancer in my youth,” she says. “The following disability made me feel like I was thrown into a dungeon, but in time my spirit learned to sneak through the cracks.”

Her book HERE STILL: Dying Into Life Anew (Virtus Ventures  $24.99) is layered with the intricacies of sanity, sexuality and spirituality.  978-0993846908

    What could have been a morbidly, depressing story is a page turner because it has been written with such a level of skill and sensitivity without sacrificing honesty and fact.
    Highly recommend, both as a read and a learning tool.

    The book is well worth reading.It inspires. Seeing the author plunging into life and really living also inspires. Impossible is possible.

    Great book! It inspired me to read about Yaz’s transformation through the many avenues she pursued in healing – including new medical breakthroughs and energy work.
