Malana Ashlie was born in a garage in Akron, Ohio. Of her five brothers only the youngest -twins- were born in the same place. Vagabond tendencies are in her blood. Her first book, "Gringos in Paradise: Our Honduras Odyssey" was meant to journal the adventures (and misadventures) of transitioning from sheltered US living into the lesser developed country of Honduras. When the book won a first place award it set a new course for her life.
Just as traveling is her nature so is caring and healing. For over twenty years she has been a holistic healer and inter-faith minister. Her view of the world is shaped by her education in naturopathy, metaphysics and studies with traditional elders. As a holistic healer, she sees problems as disruptions in a natural flow, therefore correctable. Her books and articles offer new perspectives to resolving old problems.
She currently lives on the Caribbean Coast of Honduras where she spends her time writing, consulting, and practicing nutritional theories on very willing local children. She also has a Single Mother's project that assist women in creating financial independence through in-home businesses. Watch for her webinars that incorporate the wisdom of the ancients with accepted sciences.
