Fear of failing at motherhood. Fear of doing things differently. Fear of feeling unfulfilled…forever. Author Shanita Liu was consumed by these fears. Decades of people-pleasing, perfectionism, and cultural conditioning left her burned out. Desperate, Shanita sought a coach who invited her to tune into her heart. That’s when Durga, a remarkable warrior goddess, appeared. Durga told Shanita that she wasn’t alone and she could activate her own courage to triumph over fears. As a result of Durga’s support, Shanita went from being a scared mom-to-be to birthing three children, building a business, disrupting ancestral patterns of self-sacrifice, and embracing her authentic self. Mixing memoir and self-help, Dear Durga is your go-to guidebook to get the encouragement you crave to overcome obstacles holding you back from tasting sweet victories not only in motherhood, but in life. Through Shanita’s keep-it-real wit and warmth, she’ll walk you through the four phases of her Courage Kit® framework that will help you: • Activate courage—your limitless energy within. • Align with your needs—the ones you neglect. • Alleviate stressors—the ones that deplete you. • Act with conviction towards your dreams—the ones you procrastinate or put off entirely. Whether you’re an expecting mom, an existing mom, or a mom to your community, Shanita’s uplifting story of navigating the trials of parenthood, unemployment, entrepreneurship, and intergenerational traumas, will inspire you to forge your own fulfilling path.
