I’ve been asked to supply a little blip about The Flying Game, –the Wizard of Oz meets self-help, inspirational fiction that will be released to the public on May 9th. Rather than write a (snooozzz) book report, which would probably bore everyone to catatonia, I’m just posting the little blip that the Library of Congress has on file. Still got questions? Buy the book! It’s a fun one!
The Wizard of Oz meets self-help in this inspirational fiction by author and gestalt practitioner, Jan Deelstra. Based on gestalt techniques previously reserved for the professionals, Deelstra takes us into the conflicted mind of the incomparable Stella Harris.
As a child, Stella had always won the ‘flying game,’ but now she was playing for her life and only the wisdom of Oz could save her.
The Flying Game, is a fictional account of overcoming the odds, but is well within the realm of possibilities.
Utilizing her background in social issues, gestalt techniques, and nondenominational spirituality, the author winds the fictional story around a complicated woman who learned early on to take risks, even as her peers were too scared to join in, and were too afraid to watch.
Along the road of life, Stella learned to doubt, to distrust, and to fear. She found more serenity within the walls of her colorful mind than she dared discover outside of the safety womb she had constructed. And then she met Crystal Nekawa, a transformed woman of incredible resilience, and everything changed.
The journey is a realistic path, and the heroine is a powerful reminder to us all, that with self-awareness and a willingness to take risks, anything we can dream is a real possibility.
Readers will cheer on this fearful protagonist as she grows to embrace her personal power and ultimately reaches undreamed of heights. In the process, the reader may experience his or her own transformation while witnessing Stella’s awakening and re-owning of the previously dis-owned portions of herself. Hooray for the underdog, she could be us!
As readers, we are indelibly left with a questioning residue…. What of Oz and the Tin Man reside within each of us?
