Accidental Adulthood

NEW RELEASE

One Man's Experience with Dating and Other Friggin' Nonsense

Authored by Jeff Gephart

Mick's adult life is not turning out the way he'd hoped. His twenties are over, and instead of being the acclaimed novelist and family man he thought he'd be, Mick is stuck running a second-rate California motel and fumbling through an endless succession of hilarious dating misadventures. Most of his friends are married with children, and he feels they look down upon single people like him as being merely a fraction of a whole being.

During his version of the modern single man's search for what completes him, Mick must contend with a cast of quirky and memorable characters that both frustrate and sustain him as he navigates his way toward having to make a momentous career decision that will affect all of their lives.

Accidental Adulthood is a coming-of-age story for the Tinder generation. As Mick begins to face up to his own flaws and struggles to ascertain his place in the adult world, some universal truths are illuminated about family, ambition, responsibility, loyalty, and relationships.

Holding Space













NEW RELEASE!

Holding Space: A Guide to Supporting Others

 While Remembering to Take Care of Yourself First


Do you know what it means to Hold Space? Many people don’t, though most people have done it at least a handful of times in their lives. Others may have a special talent for holding space, but don’t even realize that’s what they are doing since the term is not in popular use yet. This book first defines and clarifies what is meant by the term Holding Space, and then takes the reader on a journey through the life of a spaceholder (one who holds space). The journey will cover initial stirrings of awareness, spiritual considerations and self-care, as well as holding space in relationships, in business, for your dreams, and for the world at large. You will learn where in your life you are already holding space, and how to honor yourself for very beneficial service you are providing. Most importantly, you will learn how to honor your own needs and boundaries first, so that you can be of even greater service to yourself and the world around as you hold space either personally, or professionally.
