Allegorical tale gift wraps lessons on fear and happiness
'Journey Back to Me' by SD Ferguson exposes fraudulence of fearful thinking that inbibit freedom and joy

HILTON HEAD, SC -- SD Ferguson's novella, "Journey Back to Me: Touring the Landscape of My Mind" (published by Balboa Press), takes the reader on a ride through the mind. Liza, a successful single mother, is trapped in her subconscious where she sees firsthand how her thinking shapes her life. Hijacked by her imagination, Liza’s thoughts take her to mysterious and dangerous places. Each stop along her journey provides insights how to break free from the fear-based thoughts and habits that rob her of happiness.


Grounded in scientific research on the benefits of mindfulness and the ability to rewire our brains, the allegorical tale takes the reader on a roller coaster ride of self-reflection and epiphanies. Playful dialogue, whimsical artwork, and colorful metaphors add layers of meaning and make complex metaphysical concepts easy to understand and remember.


Ferguson was inspired by the idea that everyone can learn to interrupt destructive thoughts and actions to live a happier, freer life. The author hopes Liza’s journey will help readers break through their own fears and discontent. Ferguson adds, “Any unconstructive habit in thinking can be transformed to enhance both our business and personal lives. The keys to success are awareness and practice. What better way to learn than through a thought-provoking, thought-revealing story?”
