A compelling contribution to inspirational literature, My Walk on the Aikido Path: A Healing Journey of Self-discovery, is a story of inner transformation and healing. A survivor of childhood trauma that led to a mental breakdown as a young adult, the author’s discovery of aikido helped her heal from her past and discover her path as a psychotherapist.
This is the story of how the integration of these practices helped her understand herself and find a path out of darkness. Kling’s story reminds us that it is possible to claim power in our lives and refashion ourselves through mindfulness and perseverance.
Though not everyone practices martial arts, My Walk on the Aikido Path teaches that anyone can rebuild their lives around an endeavor that brings purpose and fulfillment. A unique and powerful story of overcoming adversity.
