Self-care and emotional health are more important than ever. In the face of unprecedented uncertainty, it’s easy to become overwhelmed by fear and anxiety.

What can we do right now, as individuals, to begin a journey toward a brighter future? The Fix Yourself Handbook from clinical therapist Faust Ruggiero presents a step-by-step program he calls the Process Way of Life, which aims to help readers achieve physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual balance.

“Human beings are a product of nature. As such, we are governed by natural rules. These are called processes: deliberate and natural actions or steps that must be performed so that we can live in tune with our own natural flow,” Ruggiero writes.

He published The Fix Yourself Handbook last year. The book presents the Process Way of Life, which is the culmination of over twenty years of research, program development, and counseling application. It has helped to change the lives of over two thousand clients in his private practice. The book is a nonfiction award recipient from both the Nonfiction Authors Association and Literary Titan.

Between the covers of The Fix Yourself Handbook, Ruggiero presents 52 of these internal processes and explains in easy-to-follow language how these processes can be applied to any life situation. He offers straightforward action plans to address issues methodically — prioritizing practical intellect over emotion — to empower readers to tackle problems, resolve conflicts, The Fix Yourself Handbookembrace change and rise above anger.

Let go of anxiety and negativity, embrace a positive path forward with the Process Way Of Life.

By understanding and learning to live according to the Process Way of Life, readers can become active players in their lives and transform anger to love and sadness to joy. The result is a much happier, healthier, more productive life.

There is very little that author Faust A. Ruggiero’s hasn’t seen, and very few problems he hasn’t helped people work through during his professional career of almost 40 years. He has consistently established cutting-edge counseling programs in pursuit of professional excellence and personal life enhancement. He is a published research author, clinical trainer and a therapist who has worked in settings that have included clinics for deaf children, hospitals, prisons, nursing homes, corporate settings, centers for abused women, substance abuse centers, and inpatient facilities. He continues to provide counseling services for veterans, first responders, law enforcement and other emergency personnel.

During his tenure as the President of the Community Psychological Center in Bangor, Pennsylvania, he developed the Process Way of Life counseling program, and has adapted it into the formal text presented in The Fix Yourself Handbook. In February 2020, The Fix Yourself Handbook received the Silver Award from The Nonfiction Authors Association.

Faust Ruggiero has done over 40 interviews in 2020, in the feedback he is receiving is that the interviews have helped people organize their lives, reduce fear, come to terms with the issues they need to change, and become better prepared to move ahead with the lifestyle transitions we are all experiencing.

Seamless pop smarts drawing from a wide spectrum of genres and time periods. Delicate yet grandiose, intimate yet epic. Un Rodo Cora covers a wide range of musical landscapes, without becoming schizophrenic.

The new album Titles and Frames is classic pop and rock, with a mix of retro and now.

Un Rodo Coras earlier albums were often inspired by geographical locations, with titles like New York-Barentsburg and Beijing-Bangalore. Then in 2016 came Love Thy Neighbor, an album more focused on a journey with religious and political overtones. And now with their fifth album Titles and Frames they take on the really big questions in life: Friendship, Love and Loss. And a bit of Death.

Un Rodo Cora is a Stockholm based group of musicians with links to both USA and India. They are somewhere between a solo project, a band and a collective, centered around the songwriter Bo Christo. Although a number of musicians form the core of the band the actual line-up is as fixed as a recipe for pizza. Band members switch instruments and guest musicians enter the ring.

The band’s loose fit is a result of the frustration Bo felt in many of the bands he played with in his youth, where a fixed line-up often became a limitation. Instead of writing songs for the band he decided to form a band for the songs.
