Taming the Tokolosh is the new inspirational book by Mandy Bass, a true story of how she survived a brutal attack on her life and healed physically and emotionally.
More than a trauma survivor's true story, it is a gripping tale of Love, forgiveness and Grace. Once you start reading it you won't be able to put it down. Best of all, you can read the whole inspirational story in one or two sittings. The last part of the book is a resource guide with helpful exercises that Mandy used to get her through rough times.
Mandy is currently recording guided exercises from the resource guide. Please make sure you are on our email list so you get notified when they are available.
Here is what other people are saying about it:
“Mandy has a brilliant, creative and courageous spirit. A survivor of a home invasion and brutal near-death attack, in this book she shares how she navigated the seasons of healing and recovery. Her reflections come from the depth of her psyche, yet the tone is lifted with her delightful humor. This is an intimate portrayal of taming traumatic fear and paving a path of personal growth, grace and transformation. An inspirational story with guideposts to overcome adversity and discover the heart of human resiliency.”
Louise Peters, Psy.D. Licensed Clinical Psychologist
“It is not easy to open your heart to the world, but she has done that with the purpose of helping many to heal whatever needs to be healed, to find love, happiness, and inner peace, even in the storm of their lives.”
Claudia Peñalba, MD
"Mandy's journey from trauma to healing has been an amazing example of how clarity and spirituality can be applied to difficult situations in life. She has been an inspiration to me and many others."
Al Rapaport, Zen Teacher, Author of A Guide to Meditation
“Many of us use meditation and other psycho-spiritual tools to find peace, live fearlessly and be a positive influence in our world. Mandy not only practiced these tools with uncommon courage to save herself and recover from the ongoing nightmare that is PTSD, but went deeper. She wanted to save her attacker, too.
In clear, powerful prose, Mandy takes you with her as she heals and reveals how two people can shed the roles of victim and abuser, and enter a sacred, empowering relationship. “
