I still remember the day Viviana shared with me that she wanted to write a book about Breathwork and the Mana Universe she had created with her partner…

Little did I know that her creative guides had another plan, as is usually the case when one surrenders to the magic of any artistic journey.

During those first months, when we started working on her book together, we discovered that more than being another book about breathwork, her creativity was leading her to share her personal story and reveal her inner artist. It became clear that her book contained within it a story of personal healing, resilience, and transformation that could not be ignored.

Little by little, Viviana’s story became a loving guide connected to the real story of how breathwork and meditation had assisted her during the most challenging and profound times in her life.

Every month, Bending Our Reality began to take shape in mysterious ways only known by those who are willing to let the magic powers of creativity lead them. After three years and hours of hard work and commitment to her message and desire to make this world a better place, Bending Our Reality contains decades of knowledge, research, meditations, and poetic thoughts packed into one book that you get to enjoy now as her reader.

The poetry collection that made it into her book is a precious surprise that I will hold very dear as proof that - art chooses us as vessels for higher good when we open our hearts fully to our truest intentions.

This book is a testament to many miracles. The first of them being that despite it all, Viviana’s courage and resilience make this book a reality.

But the most revealing miracle of them all is the impact that these pages will have on those people who are willing, ready, and open to receive them. Davina Ferreira Alegría Publishing Founder
