 Renee Trudeau & Associates

Dear Friend,

"Self-care is not about self-indulgence, it's about self-preservation."
-- Audrey Lorde

Learning about, taking baby steps toward and eventually creating a self-care practice has changed my life more than any single thing I've done in the last nine years. I invite you to read more about my journey and watch a video about the evolution of my book and women's groups.

To celebrate and honor Mother's Day and "self-mothering"-- I want to extend to you a FREE DOWNLOAD of my award-winning book The Mother's Guide to Self-Renewal: How to Reclaim, Rejuvenate and Re-Balance Your Life. Note: the link will only be good through May 10th!

Download the Book

Empower others by encouraging your friends, family and colleagues from around the globe to sign up today for their personal copies and they'll also receive additional life balance resources, tips and support when they do so. We currently have self-renewal circles meeting around the book in Amsterdam, Alberta, Albany and beyond!

This is a wonderful opportunity to give a heart-felt, empowering, nurturing and life-changing gift that will enhance the physical and emotional well-being of women at ALL life stages.

Featured extensively in national media and described as "The best book on balance," by women's health guru Dr. Joan Borysenko, author of Inner Peace for Busy Women, this work has helped thousands of women and can help you:

  • reconnect with who you are and nurture yourself
  • manage your energy and practice saying "no"
  • tap into the Transformative Power of Self-Care

I look forward to hearing what insights you gain from the Guide and I hope you can join me June 11th for our free Personal Renewal Group Sampler Teleclass (details and registration info. below).


P.S. This free download is part of a deeply inspired Live Inside Out celebration. We'd love to hear how you Live Inside Out on our LIO Facebook Fan page. Join us!
