There's A Leak In My Boat!
The Challenges and Gifts of My Journey Through Chronic Illness
by Flo Levia

There’s a Leak in My Boat! is a gripping personal tale about all the things that contributed to the author’s chronic illnesses, shared in the hopes that they may resonate with others who are wrestling with similar challenges and staring down the same "why me"? questions. Here is an intimate account of the many therapies and individuals whose gifts were helpful to her. Together, they guide readers to transform past hurts and traumas into rich compost that facilitates profound personal growth. This is a journey of many small steps, but it’s a rewarding one, a journey of growth in love and compassion for ourselves and all the players in our lives. Along the way, we learn that we can surface from the depths of anxiety and depression to realize our nervous systems have been stuck in fight/flight/freeze for much of our lives, setting us up for a body full of inflammation and a head full of limiting beliefs. It is a book of resources and inspiration, hope and empowerment, all of it offered by someone who’s walked this stony path and learned the tools for navigating it. She hopes readers who want to understand themselves better will use There’s a Leak in My Boat! to take (baby) steps toward a better quality of life.

"Author Flo Levia has gifted us with a highly relatable book that skillfully interweaves her own multi-year healing journey through chronic health issues with nuggets of information about multiple alternative healing modalities she found along the path. She has created a kind and respectful book. Readers will find themselves entranced by her stories and learning a great deal from how she integrates key concepts from neurobiology with what authentic healing is all about." —Nancy Forrester, Founder and Executive Director National EFT Training Institute Clinical Member Ontario Society of Psychotherapists (Retired) MBA, B.Ed., B.Sc., Accredited EFT Trainer of Trainers
