East West Living Book Store Event in NYC

May 10th, 2010 — 11:32am

We had a wonderful experience at the East West Living book store in downtown Manhattan. It was Mother’s Day, so mothers and daughters (mine included) showed up to talk about “Face It” with Michele (our editor) and me. It was especially enjoyable as soothing aromas floated by in this calm and spiritual atmosphere. The East West Living on 14th Street has been around for a very long time, but it was my first time there. It is New York’s largest source for spiritual and holistic health books and supplies. We were delighted to be speaking about our topic in an atmosphere that emphasizes a balanced lifestyle of body, mind and spirit awareness. That was our point; balance, inside and outside, about how we feel and how we look. The manager of the store, Cami (and her sister, mother and dad!) welcomed us as we walked through the door, telling us that “Face It” was selling very well at East West. The group who attended exchanged interesting ideas and, all in all, it was a great beginning to our 2010 Mother’s Day. We hope other book stores invite us for these kinds of discussions, so more women can feel beautiful in a balanced way. Dr. Vivian
