What is your book about?

“A Space Between: Holistic Wellness for Menopause and Beyond” is a reckoning. This captivating self-help debut is both an inspiration and a guide through the transition of menopause. Whether you find yourself waking up at night soaked in sweat or have been postmenopausal for years, A Space Between has something for you. Through six reflective chapters, readers will learn to break up with their old ways, write a new story and cultivate a life of health and purpose. Marla’s journey toward physical, emotional and spiritual wellness was neither linear nor well-lit. And while she’s still on her path, she eagerly invites you to join her.

Marla tells her story as a narrative, putting you in her shoes at pivotal points of growth and insight throughout her life. A Space Between includes stories within the self-help narrative to highlight the principles and insights of managing menopause. The book includes a timeline of where and when to help you place events chronologically—or in case you get lost in the jungle and wonder if you’re in Costa Rica, Belize or El Salvador! Just don’t be surprised to find the beginning at the end because, as Marla has learned, life is beautifully cyclical and forgiving.

Topics include:

  • The journey home to yourself
  • The rise of the wiser
  • The inner self as we go through menopause
  • The gut-brain connection
  • The importance of embracing the aging process
  • Rewriting old limiting beliefs to set yourself free
