Never Without Love

Both charming and powerful, this memoir unfolds the story of a young girl born in Iran who eventually triumphs over sexism and abuse to become a successful woman and mother in Canada. The book opens with a dramatic account of a terrible accident that leaves a young child with burn scars all over her chest. This scarring has a profound effect on the girl’s life. Yet, despite this accident, the narrator’s childhood is rich and blessed in many ways. The family circle is extensive and the relationships, especially with the wonderful Baba (her father) and her spirited cousin Fereshteh, are both protective and complex. The narrator travels from Qazvin, an ancient capital of the Persian Empire, to remote mountain villages, to the glittering capital of Tehran with its cafés, dance clubs, fancy boutiques and lush parks, to a villa on the Caspian Sea, as well as to the “tin town” of Halaby Abad in Southern Tehran and to the rice paddies where women do backbreaking work for next to nothing in wages. In doing so, she deftly handles a minefield of politics, from the regime of the Shah to the foreign interests of British and Americans, to street marches and protests, to the installation of the Ayatollah Khomeini and the Islamic Republic. A beloved uncle is murdered by the Revolutionary Guards and the narrator’s own marriage to a man of the Bahai faith is illegal. Sexual politics and women’s rights are addressed throughout the memoir from the Persian custom of khastegari, to the stripping of women’s rights under the Islamic Republic to domestic abuse in Canada.

 

About the Author

Mehrnaz Massoudi was born in Iran and immigrated to Canada in 1983 after the Iranian revolution and in the midst of the Iran-Iraq war. She obtained her Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Guelph, Ontario, and worked as a molecular biologist at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto and the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. She integrates her science background with her knowledge of meditation to guide seekers toward new levels of self-love, courage, and inner tranquility. Her memoir, Never without Love, is a profoundly revealing narrative of her own life as an Iranian woman who escaped her beloved, war-torn homeland to find peace in Canada.

Let Silence be your Heart GPS in 2019

Are you ready to manifest your dreams in 2019?

This is not a New Year’s Resolutions workshop!!

Why New Year’s Resolutions don’t work?

But first I ask a couple of questions before I answer:

1- What is your operating system?

2- What are your limiting beliefs?

Your operating system is your Subconscious Mind.

95% of what you do and what you attract is being controlled by your subconscious mind.

If this 95% of your operating system is programmed with the negative events of your life and your limiting beliefs then, do you think your New Year’s Resolutions would work?

Just because you write your New Year’s resolutions on your vision board, or you put it on your fridge so you can see it every day; it doesn’t mean that it would work.

First you need to reprogram your operating system-Your Subconscious Mind, then you will be able to manifest your heart-felt-desires and dreams. It is only in Silence that you can reprogram your subconscious mind!!

Join Mehrnaz at Let Silence be your Heart GPS in 2019 workshop to Let Go of your negative thoughts and limiting beliefs to manifest your Heart-Felt-Desires…Your Dream.
