Ancient Wisdom for Modern Leadership

Beyond Resilience to Rootsilience empowers women leaders to reclaim balance and well-being by decoding the language of our body, behavior and mind. Our body shows us when we've been stretched beyond our limits and knocked out of balance. But what can we do about it and how can we recognize those first signs?

Beyond Resilience to Rootsilience shows us how. Rootsilience ("root - zeel - ience") is a new word and rhymes with resilience. We invented the word because to affect real, transformational change, we need to create new consciousness with new language.

Beyond Resilience to Rootsilience is inspired by ancient teachings and modern science and combines three key branches: conscious leadership, healing foods, and mind-body integration. This book highlights the honesty and vulnerability that Rimi and Samantha share from their life experiences highlighting key lessons for women leaders.

Resilience is not enough to deal with the stressors and challenges of the day. Our new word, Rootsilience, takes the notion of "resilience" a step deeper, and teaches us to be grounded, rooted and able to respond to stressors from a place of security rather than being stretched beyond our limits. We need to rise beyond resilience to Rootsilience.

This book offers you:

-A revolutionary Rootsilience Leadership Map to recognize the interconnectedness of your leadership behavior and your emotional, physical, and mental signs of ease and dis-ease.

-Practical leadership exercises, healing foods and recipes, and go-to practices for movement and meditation.

-Access to "Beyond the Book", an online platform for guided videos, resources and an online community sharing journeys to become a Rootsilient leader.
