Dear LIFE Explorer,
Super excited to share with you news regarding my new book project, the creation and compilation of The Book of SOULFUL MUSINGS: enlightening insights, tools and guidance from LIFE Inspiring Conversations.
For the first time, inspiring conversations about LIFE and soul-expanding insights that have enlightened LIFE explorers since 2010 on the Health and Healing Show on RedShift Radio and on The Golden Muse TV Show are collected in The Book of Soulful Musings, a beautiful, cherishable, deeply-affecting book.
I’d like to invite you to be one of the contributors in the book aiming to be published in 2018 with the Pre-Launch happening on World Book Day, Thursday 1st March 2018 in Cheshire in England. (put it in your diary!).
Organized into ten chapters, each one representing a powerful “key” in ChriSOULa’s own colourful, evolutionary journey, and introduced with a personal essay by ChriSOULa, The Golden Muse, herself – The Book of SOULFUL MUSINGS features insightful selections from the most meaningful conversations between ChriSOULa Sirigou and some of today’s most heart-centred thought leaders and holistic health and healing educators.
Visionaries share their lessons in finding purpose and being in the flow of prosperity. Authors and teachers explain our complex relationship with the mind, the heart, the gut and the spirit and the healing powers of creativity, compassion and connection. And change makers explore faith, forgiveness and letting go.
Paired with beautiful photographs, including many from ChriSOULa’s explorations and retreats in her motherland Greece, The Book of Soulful Musings promises to be a timeless keepsake that will help readers awaken to LIFE‘s wondrous possibilities in this colourful quest to learn to Love yourself more, trust your Intuition, be in the Flow of life, always Exploring, Expanding and Evolving.

I believe it would help to have your written permission on using the transcripts of the selected interview either in an audio (Soundcloud) or video format (Zoom video conferencing platform), taken place either on the Health and Healing show on RedShift Radio or on The Golden Muse Shows and Mastercalls. Your involvement in checking the transcript will be necessary to ensure there are no major errors. An email will be sent to you with Action Points for your information to help us with the process.

It will be possible and we can schedule you for the new year either on The Golden Muse TV Show. I’ll be happy to offer more details including a guest questionnaire for you to complete to help me structure the interview. Send me an email to email@example.com and we shall make it happen.
Here Is How You Can Help:
In return, I would wholeheartedly ask you to help me as much as you can to promote the book to your followers, support the Crowdfunding campaign, attend the book’s Pre-launch on Thursday 1 March 2018 and Launch taking place late Spring (exact date and location TBA) to give the book the exposure it deserves. We will all benefit from its promotion.
(estimated February 2018 and lasting for 5-6 weeks)
With your support I’ll be raising money with pre-launch sales to help finance the editing, layout, publishing, marketing and design costs, and to do a print run of the first batch of books! It is my intention to give a percentage of this book’s profits to a charitable cause that is helping to change the world for the better.
There will be an assortment of pledges to choose from and also the possibility for people to make donations in support of the publication of the book. More information will be shared with you soon.
PRE-LAUNCH 1st March 2018
My target date for the Pre-Launch is Thursday 1st March 2018 at the annual celebration of World Book Day that I have been hosting (and perhaps you have been part of with your book or having the intention to write your own book) over the last few years. Tickets will be on sale soon and available to invite your family and friends to join us to help create awareness about the book and your contribution.
THE UK LAUNCH Spring 2018
will be in May 2018. My initial thoughts are to create a big buzz on Sunday 22 April (World Earth Day) and World Book Night on 23 April to help create awareness along with hosting your launch events in various places near to where you are based, inviting your friends and followers to come and connect and purchase a signed copy of the book. This is something that can be discussed in detail at a later stage.
BOOK LAUNCH IN YOUR COUNTRY
As some of you are not UK based, the plan is for me to come to your country and create opportunities to launch the book where you and your connections are. My heartfelt intention is for the book to offer inspiration and guidance to as many people as possible in our local communities and worldwide.
SOCIAL MEDIA SUPPORT
I will invite you to be a part of my page and campaigns on Facebook Twitter and YouTube. You can help us spread the word about the book by sharing events, posts and videos on your own social media. As you know, Social Media is a powerful method of getting the message out to a global audience.

Moira Bush (Canada)
Having been involved in a serious motor vehicle accident and, as a result, battling with neck and back ache for the next 17 years, Nichola came across Body Stress Release (BSR).
After trying many different modalities, this was the technique that worked for her. Due to the phenomenal results, she decided to study to become a Body Stress Release Practitioner in 2012 at the Body Stress Release Academy in South Africa where the system originates from.
Once qualified, Nichola set up her practice in Johannesburg and built up a very successful practice. She had many clients that visited her each month without fail as they experienced such relief and well-being from BSR. After visiting family in the UK with her son, Nichola decided that it was time for a new adventure. January 2016 Nichola arrived and settled in London where she set up her practice which was growing nicely, but due to family commitments, Nichola moved to Sandbach in Cheshire on the 1st August 2017.
Since her arrival she has taken part in the Holistics and Mystics Fair in Sandbach, and has also been a guest on Chrisoula’s Health and Healing Show on RedShift Radio. You can listen to her radio interview and find out how Body Stress Release can help here: soundcloud.com/redshift-audiocasts/health-healing-body-stress-release-161117

Richard Ashworth’s work has been highlighted many times in the media but he is probably best known for introducing authentic Chinese Imperial Feng Shui to BBC tv’s Housebusters and for his book The Feng Shui Diaries which, apart from anything else, may be the funniest book written on the subject to date. He is internationally famous for his ground breaking transformational work with the ba zi or Four Pillars of Destiny, otherwise misleadingly known as the Chinese Horoscope. Press has included the Guardian Diary, Spirit and Destiny, Art and Architecture, Elle Decoration and 25 Beautiful Homes. He has worked with A-Listers such as Gillian Anderson of the X-Files (who said he “commands both confidence and awe”) and professionals like Britain’s favourite Interior Designer and newest Dragon Kelly Hoppen (Click here) and he has been the subject of the Sunday Times feature ‘A Life in the Day’. His poignant, informative and often very funny online diaries are available free from this website. In the summer of 2010 on TV’s Big Brother’s Little Brother he gave his view that the Big Brother houses were “the dark side of feng shui.”
Richard learned authentic feng shui by studying with a series of masters over a period of decades.
Along the way he has worked with corporations, architectural practices, entrepreneurs and in government departments but his daily task remains “going in and out of people’s houses being enigmatic.”
“What I’m interested in is leaving people happier than I found them.”

Sue started running women’s networking events in 2010 and launched on the same day as Red Shift Radio. She became involved with a show there called Scarlet Ladies. One of her proudest achievements is her annual Literary Lunch which has been responsible for many guests meeting book editors and realising their writing dreams.
She is also the Patron of the charity “Gift of A Wedding” which creates weddings for terminally ill people. This position came about through meeting the founder of the charity at one of my events and she asked me to be a spokes- person because of my own personal experiences. Her 27 year old actress daughter had died from Cancer in 2001 and Sue had organised her wedding in 3 weeks as this was something she really wanted. She passed away three months later but she had been able to enjoy a very special day first.
Her goal for 2018 is to help more women connect and succeed in their businesses by continuing to hold fabulous events and my personal ambition is to do something completely new and daring in this my 70th year.
