Mountain Air : Relapsing and Finding The Way Back... One Breath at a Time
It is forgivable to lose them...
it is unforgivable not to reclaim them...
Mountain Air: Relapsing And Finding The Way Back One Breath At A Time is a brutally honest personal narrative detailing a painful descent into relapse and a powerful journey back to recovering.
Without condemnation but with passion and purpose, Mountain Air ...
Embraces individuals who have abandoned their authentic ways of being for a life of personal neglect, indulgence, or self-destruction. Speaks to individuals who have betrayed their healing tenets - the addict who has lost his sobriety, the abused who has returned to her abuser, or the codependent who continues to rescue the uncontrollable. Reaches out to individuals who have maintained a life of stability and wellness, but who are eroding over time - and losing their sense of self and of spirit.
Mountain Air is for any individual who has experienced relapse and who is fighting to find his way back...
By inviting readers to take a journey with the author as she shares time-tested lessons in the recovering process. By providing thoughtful and accountable exercises with each chapter that guide the reader in the reclaiming and sustaining of their truths.
Praise for Kenley's Mountain Air
"...a personal memoir out of which she extracts principles that can be generalized to all who are in recovery, inspiring them to take courage. This poetic and nature-infused account should become a standard for all therapists and all in the process of recovery."
--David Van Nuys, Ph.D., Emeritus Professor of Psychology, Host of Shrink Rap Radio
"With Holli's inspiring personal journey from relapse to recovery and her challenging questions in each chapter, the reader can examine self-defeating behaviors and beliefs that block the natural ability to walk through change, pain, and difficult times."
--Melissa Yarbray, M.A., Marriage and Family Therapist, Licensed Advanced Alcohol & Drug Counselor

"Once I started reading, I could not put your book down. All I can say is WOW! In fact, I have read it twice and have taken the opportunity for personal reflection. [Her] book has again reaffirmed for me how life teaches the lessons we need wherever we are...With guided reflections, she offers the readers the opportunity to embrace their pain and move toward healing. She also presents professionals with a tool to augment their clinical work."

"Holli Kenley's Mountain Air is a refreshing look at the process of relapse and recovery. Who better to offer insight than someone who has lived the dark night of the soul and come out the other side. Holli's self -disclosure makes this book so unique. I particularly liked the inclusion of Nature and the seasons as healing tools. "
-- Carol Teitelbaum, MFT
"Using the strength and power of nature's lessons, Mountain Air provides a message of hope and the strategies to get there. For all who feel they have compromised their time, values, and integrity to the extent they have lost themselves and are now seeking a path back to their truth and authentic self, this is a must read."
-- Melissa Yarbray, M.A., MFT
"Holli Kenley, psychotherapist and abuse-survivor herself, has created a work that is unique in the recovery literature. Her particular focus is on the inevitable relapses along the way to healing. Her book is a personal memoir out of which she extracts principles that can be generalized to all who are in recovery, inspiring them to take courage. This poetic and nature-infused account should become a standard for all therapists and all in the process of recovery."
