In this partly autobiographically inspired work, we travel with Laura, a successful entrepreneur from New York to our collective mother, Africa's Kalahari Desert, where she must save the game reserve inherited from her mother from financial ruin. While saving rare rhinos from extinction, she falls in love with a rugged but passionate game warden who forces her to confront the harsh realities of modern wildlife conservation policy. Accompanied by her old friend !Xam, she remembers her former self, able to approach ‚naked as an ardvaark‘ the lair of Mantis - that elusive now-point which she has chased all her life with yoga and meditation. Freed from the limitations of a modern 'self', she awakens in the ‚dream that dreams us‘ and learns to bring the rains to the people she loves. Laura learns to love.

My Starving Soul

An autobiography

Verlag: Bastei Lübbe, 1997

(out of print)

Together with my publisher, and under a pseudonym, I described the brutal everyday life of a young woman battling with an eating disorder. We wanted to encourage other women that healing and recovery is possible.

Als 12 jähriges Mädchen mache ich meine erste Diät. Ein jahrelanger Alptraum beginnt. Was ich damals, sowie auch meine unzähligen Therapeuten nicht wusste, war, dass ich unter einer schweren, körperlich bedingten Abhängigkeit an den ‚Stoff Essen‘ litt. Ausgelöst von einer scheinbar ‚harmlosen‘ Diät. Essen wurde zur Droge. Ich war gefangen in einer lebensbedrohlichen Sucht-spirale. Erst als ich in New York eine Therapeutin treffe, beginnt meine Heilung. Mir wird klar, dass ich alleine die Kraft habe, mein altes Opferdenken mit lebensbejahenden Glaubenssätze zu ersetzen. Getragen von der Liebe meines Mannes finde ich Kraft und Zuversicht, ein neues Kapitel in meinem Leben aufzuschlagen.
