I had to nearly die in order to learn how to really live. The Power of Disruption: A Memoir of Discovery tells the dramatic story of my appendix rupturing while vacationing on a remote Caribbean island; months of recovery to regain balance in mind, body and spirit; and the peace I discovered within me once I trusted that life really does have our backs in all of our good, bad, and scary moments. Whether it's life, death or somewhere in between, disruption can be the first step toward clearing a path so we rediscover our own best selves.

Psychologist Rollo May once wrote: “Pause is the prerequisite for wonder.” This is applicable to Susan Cross as she deals with an unexpected health emergency. It is her creative pause moment in life where the endless negative chain of cause and effect can be broken. Ultimately her sudden illness turns into a creative pause moment – a fork in the road – where she can make a choice, continue as is or change. Wisdom chooses the latter. The Power of Disruption is a memoir about decisions. It is a vulnerable journey about letting go of the familiar. Let Susan Cross be your guide as you immerse yourself into a world of hope. It’s yours to discover.
Sometimes the universe smacks us in the face to get our attention; to force us to slow down and really feel. This is one of those stories; raw, real, terrifying, immensely inspiring and ultimately life-changing…if you’re really listening to the message in it for you. The author takes us on her wild ride hoping we’re listening and waking up to our purpose before we get smacked ourselves. And she does a brilliant job of that. In these amazing pages of truth, adventure, tragedy and evolution we’re encouraged to believe in ourselves enough to go for our own joy.
