"Ferris’ journey is an enlightening one that may offer hope and inspiration to those facing similar challenges...Get it."
We've Got to Stop Meeting Like This
A Memoir of Missed Connections
What if the path to inner peace leads to outright disaster?
Donna seems to have it all - a generous husband, two healthy kids, a Jersey shore home - but something is missing.
When she signs up for yoga teacher training, her carefully cultivated life begins to crumble. Her husband is having an affair. Dangerous childhood secrets resurface. Her career goes sideways. And she doesn’t even like yoga . . . yet.
As Donna reels and heals, she discovers love, rescues dogs, and confronts yet another crisis of faith when her mother falls ill.
A devastating but funny, life-affirming love story, We’ve Got to Stop Meeting Like This is for anyone who has ever dared to fight for what matters - and believes it’s never too late to find love or enlightenment.
But not necessarily in that order.
"This is a beautifully written memoir. I could not put it down! You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll download some music, you'll want to do yoga, you might even rescue a dog while reading this book! I recommend you read it!" ~Kim Gockley, Yoga Therapist
"Get to your reading spot, snuggle in and read this book! If you've gone through divorce and or loss of loved ones, this is the book you didn't know you needed." ~Jennifer Morrow, Elephant Journal Author
"Donna Ferris put her heart onto the pages of 'We've Got to Stop Meeting Like This,' a vulnerable telling of three transformative years of her life told with openness. It's easy to see oneself at any stage of Donna's journey and to appreciate the strength it takes to survive loss in all its forms but most of all, to learn to love again." ~Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness and Real Happiness
