During those years, she spent much of her free time studying astrology, metaphysics and spirituality as tools for self-discovery.

This background work (along with 10 years of study in a mystery school founded by her mother) led Shaeri to the writing of "Dancing with your Dragon," her first self-help book.

    Book Review

Reviewed by Donna M for Readers' Favorite

This is a book that you must digest, as opposed to just reading. The author presents a body of work that must have taken her a lifetime to collect. This Spiritual Self-help book manages to take esoteric principals and utilize simple analogies to help the reader understand some very deep concepts. It's a course in miracles about how to love the unlovable parts of ourselves. Often in life we may seem to go round and round the same circle when trying to resolve a problem. Richards teaches how to stop chasing after one's tail, which is a horizontal process, how to break this cycle and how to travel in a vertical path thereby finally concurring one's life issues.

I've heard many explanations about how our lives are a reflection of what we see in the mirror. However, I never believed this concept. Richards breaks this concept down in a way that I finally understand, how our inner self reflects our outer life experiences. Additionally I've read many self help books such as The Secret By Rhonda Byrne, who I think offers what I call voodoo science. Richards takes the voodoo out of the principals she describes and gives a strong foundation that includes sound, psychological principals; but more importantly, she includes the divine, unlike The Secret, and she gives us practical and usable exercises to actually change one's life. After reading this book, I have made a paradigm shift and will never look at life the way I did before. It was definitely to my advantage to read this book. I believe it will enrich my life experiences exceptionally, and of course, I'm looking forward to mastering how to dance with my dragon!
