Indie Author and Intuitive Healer Meg Gibbs Releases Debut Book, ‘Spiritually


Indie Author and Intuitive Healer Meg Gibbs Releases Debut Book, ‘Spiritually Parented: A Foot in Both Worlds’, a Blueprint for Spiritual Learning
This new book serves as a guide for spiritual self-exploration while shedding light into Gibbs' experience studying shamanism within a multi-generational family of healers

OCTOBER 10, 2023 - Somatic Spiritual Guide and Intuitive Healer Meg Gibbs has announced the official debut of her very first book, ‘Spiritually Parented: A Foot in Both Worlds’.

Gibbs has studied shamanism for 25+ years. This spiritual journey began in her childhood, and this experience offered the inspiration for her new book. Within the pages of ‘Spiritually Parented: A Foot in Both Worlds’, Gibbs shares her unique story of growing up in a household where spirituality was explored alongside her mom's personal path to healing. This mother-daughter story weaves together wisdom, guided meditations, exercises and invitations for readers. Without saying as much, "Spiritually Parented: A Foot in Both Worlds" allows readers to explore their own spiritual path at their own pace.

“In healing work, our bodies serve as one of our biggest teachers and tools for integration. Integration of the body can often be the missing piece. Integrating the body can mean the difference between ‘information and transformation’,” said Gibbs.

"Spiritually Parented: A Foot in Both Worlds" recently made its Amazon debut and has received several five-star reviews since its launch. One recent reader said, “This is one of the few books that made me feel like I was reading again for the first time. Meg Gibbs beautifully tells her story weaved together with uplifting messages and affirmations, along with guided meditations, exercises, and invitations to explore your own spirituality. Meg made me feel as though I was talking with a good friend, which made this a very quick read for me.”

In her practice as a certified coach and intuitive healer, Gibbs works one-on-one with clients who span from creators, leaders, entrepreneurs, and spiritual seekers. When

people feel lost but motivated to seek out the next chapter of their lives, Gibbs helps them get back on track by putting them back in touch with their inner selves.

Gibbs was a guest on "The Intuition Conversations" podcast, which captivates listeners and encourages them to reconnect to their inner truth and remember who they are at their core. She offers workshops, meditations, and an introspective journal for the LGBTQ+ community. ‘Spiritually Parented: A Foot in Both Worlds’ is an extension of Gibbs’ intuitive healing and is already touching people everywhere.

A virtual book launch with Charis Books, with an in-person option in Atlanta, Georgia, is slated for November 3, 2023. Stay up to date with the latest from Gibbs and order a signed copy of her new book by visiting
