"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

"The Art of Talking to Yourself is a gem of a book filled with unexpected--often brilliant--insights. It stands out among the 'self-help' genre by urging us to look more mindfully at the authorities selling 'happiness' and realize that we need to trust ourselves more in our quest for a more fulfilling life. Vironika Tugaleva writes with the graceful authenticity of an experienced and thoughtful seeker, who became a gifted writer along the way on the bumpy road of life."
~Margaret B. Moss, writer and creator of Life's a Dance
"Vironika truly walks her talk. I'm endlessly inspired by her self-awareness, honesty, and insight, and confident her latest book is going to open minds and change lives!"
~Lori Deschene, author and founder of TinyBuddha
"The Art of Talking to Yourself shatters the myths that self-help gurus would have you believe in order to keep selling you their wares. This must-read book takes you on a deep dive to discover the only source of all the answers and healing you will ever need--You! Miss this book and you just might miss your sure-footed path to peace, happiness and fulfillment."
~Rick Beneteau, co-founder of 10 Million Clicks For Peace
"I read The Art of Talking to Yourself and felt an old, familiar hallelujah rise up inside. It's the feeling I get when someone has spoken truth that falls like summer rain and soaks deep, deep down into thirsty aquifers. She gets naked about her own process and what it means to shed layers of tired old ideas about perfection that do nothing but continue to keep people locked in cycles of unworthiness. It's not a self-help book as we usually know them, and she is not a self-help guru, but her honesty is eloquent and this book is ultimately a class in liberation."
~Jacob Nordby, author of Blessed Are the Weird: A Manifesto for Creatives
"Vironika's The Art of Talking to Yourself is filled with honest stories from her life which made me laugh and cry. She doesn't preach about the 'right' things to do, but instead gently coaxes the reader on a journey of self-discovery, creating an essential companion to any self-help book because it will help you respect your own inner feedback above any expert's advice."
~Catherine B. Roy, author of Live From Your Heart and Mind
"With courage, strength and refreshing candor, Vironika Tugaleva guides us on a journey of awakening to a deeper awareness of self and dares to connect us on a profound universal level. Her keen insights and practical approach encourages each of us to experience and express our innate unconditional love, bringing a profound and lasting change in ourselves and our world."
~Harold W. Becker, author and founder of The Love Foundation Inc.

The Art of Talking to Yourself is NOT a book in this genre of “expert” answers to all your questions. In fact, Viktoria Tugaleva states, right from the beginning, that she is not an expert, but a fellow traveller on the road to seeking wisdom and insight, not one who is there to sell you answers, but one to help you to ask questions. If you want easy answers, this is not your book. But if you want honest counsel, you’ve come to the right place.
There are no easy answers, Tugaleva writes, but there are honest questions. And the answers are not out there, but inside yourself. The key is to ask yourself the questions and listen to your own soul to find the path of self-knowledge and wisdom. This book is refreshing in its honesty and forthrightness. It won’t lead you down a garden path only to leave you disappointed when the “answers” don’t lead to the promised success and happiness, but it will point you to the one place where the meaning you’ve been seeking resides––in yourself.
If you want real meaning in your life, you will need to create it. If you want to really know yourself, you will need to embark on a journey of self-discovery. In The Art of Talking to Yourself, Vironika Tuvaleva stands ready to help you start that journey and walk alongside you as a guide––not an expert, but a fellow seeker––to share with you what she has learned in her years of walking down this path. The journey is well worth taking.
Author Tugaleva alerts us to the many traps of abdicating our own best answers, and the pitfalls of relinquishing our power to other, even well-meaning, voices eager to tell us how to live our lives. As she writes, only we, ourselves, can travel that journey to The Self. This is a much-needed truth! Nonetheless, we can still be grateful for the helping hands and inspiring words we find on our journeys. Vironika Tugaleva is one such guiding spirit that is destined to help many people along the way: a truly generous leader on the path to the self, and a writer of immense talent.
