About the Book

“First You Let It Go is invigorating, consoling, heartbreaking, funny, informative, philosophical, adventurous, courageous, and inspirational. I found myself in awe of her risk-taking ability and also completely resonant with her emotions, fears, anxieties, angers and her way of dealing with them. Her honesty and heart come through.”

—George Breed, PhD, author of Embodying Spirit: The Inner Work of the Warrior

“This is an inspiring chronicle of a woman’s search for self. Her adventurous trek around the world as a single, senior woman is captured with dramatic imagery overlaid by insightful commentary of the universal human connection.”

—Jerry Lopper, author of Jump for Joy! Clearing the Hurdles to an Easy Life

“First You Let it Go is for anyone who has ever made a change, or wanted to change—in short, a book for everyone. Written with warmth and wisdom, joy and honesty, you’ll read it with your passport in your hand.”

—Sheila Dickson, PhD in psychology

“It is an honest account of loss and renewal. First You Let it Go is filled with insights that find an immediate home. The author will move you towards optimism, and you will not want the journey to end.”

—Denice Helwig, chief of staff, Humboldt State University

About the Author

After a focus of study in the liberal and expressive arts, Shiana Seitz shares her insights in community publications and poetry gigs. The stories within are taken directly from personal life experiences, and represent the ways in which she inhabits the world—inevitably stepping into the unknown with joie de vivre. Currently, she leads workshops especially for women who are middle-aged and beyond to help remind them of ways to be energized by allowing curiosity and imagination to inspire creativity.
