The age of technology we live in has our heads down staring at our cell phones, spending time inside checking emails (the EPA estimates Americans spend 90% of our time indoors) and allowing stress to overrun our lives when the solution to reducing this toxicity is right outside our doors. Tracy James has apprenticed with an indigenous shaman over the last 5 years in the Amazon Jungle and has discovered that “rewilding”, reconnecting with nature both mentally and physically, is the key to a healthier and happier life.

Ever have that feeling of complacency… where things are going just fine, but you suddenly ask yourself “How did I get here, and is this where I really want to be?” The status quo can be a comfortable place to be, but too often it’s a crutch to bettering yourself and your situation. Kristin S. Kaufman returns with her second book in her Is This Seat Taken? series with the sub-titled It’s Never Too Late to Find the Right Seat.

Who has time for nature when there is so much to do? Whether at work, home, school, or in a shopping mall, Americans are spending inordinate amounts of time indoors and losing touch with what comes naturally… sitting on a log and listening to nature’s music or taking a hike or a walk in the park. Certified life coach Tracy James has spent 5 years in the Amazonian jungle apprenticing with an indigenous shaman and has discovered how to cull some of the secrets of nature in order to rewild. She discusses how rewilding can reduce stress and how to integrate ancient secrets into the modern world.

The Is This Seat Taken? by Kristin S. Kaufman is the perfect antidote for anyone caught in a rut, finding themselves at a career or personal crossroads and wanting more. Her second book in the series, It’s Never Too Late to Find the Right Seat, continues to offer practical advice supported by real-life stories from people who have found success later in life, encouraging readers to dig deep, find that motivation, and have the confidence to believe in themselves and find that new chapter in life. Kaufman has over 25 years experience as a businesswoman in the corporate world, holding down executive positions at Hewlett-Packard, Vignette Corporation, and United Health Group. In 2007 she founded Alignment Inc. to help businesses and individuals create sustainable success through finding alignment.
