In Field Notes on Letting Go, Janet Howard shares her spiritual journey and valuable lessons as she worked through her childhood trauma. And, with Field Notes on Letting Go - A Pondering Workbook, Janet provides a safe space for exploring feelings and memories through writing exercises. As you put your thoughts down on paper, writing will help you achieve a deeper insight on the human condition. Through introspection, you will be able to see the patterns and false beliefs that can be dropped one by one - like a stone by a river. 


The workbook is a companion book to the memoir, Field Notes on Letting Go. Each writing prompt has an illustration by Lily Moon and is aligned with each essay. The companion workbook is designed to support the processing and feeling of challenging emotions while exploring the landscape of your past, present, and future. Only then can you begin to explore your life experiences to learn, gain clarity, and resolve internal conflicts as well as recognize your courage, strength, and earned wisdom.

About the author

Field Notes on Letting Go is Janet Howard's first book. Janet's passion for the planet drives her lifestyle, seva (selfless service) and spiritual practice. After a 33-year career in health care sustainability, she stepped out beyond her garden gate, outside the boundary of her perceived sense of safety, into the wide-open world. With a focus on healing and learning how to slow down, Janet continued her lessons from nature and documented her journey. Janet is happiest when she is with her children, playing with friends, quietly exploring nature and adventuring. She splits her time among Massachusetts, Maine, Hawaii and wherever she is drawn to visit.

About the Illustrator:

Lily Moon is an illustrator and storyteller currently living with her partner and a menagerie consisting of two feisty canines and one very adorable kitten, in the wild and verdant Troodos mountains on the island of Cyprus. She is a newly diagnosed MS warrior who finds solace in nature, her drawing and writing, her furry family and the
kindness of strangers. Her favorite language is line and color and her favorite place in the whole world is a spot on her sofa where she can sit with her menagerie and lose herself whilst working in her sketchbook.
