Mountain Mantras by Kathryn Kemp Guylay
Once a dedicated consultant makes up her mind to change her life, great things can happen. For Kathryn Kemp Guylay 92C, that moment came with a sudden decision to leave the consulting life and take up residence in Sun Valley, Idaho. Guylay founded Nurture, a nationally-recognized nonprofit that envisions communities working in collaborative ways to enhance nutrition and wellness of children and families.

Mountain Mantras: Wellness and Life Lessons from the Slopes uses stories from the author's personal life as an engaging, often hilarious, backdrop for studying wellness and life lessons. From starting a nonprofit to her family's journey west and her humbling adventures learning to ski as an adult, Kathryn's stories inspire and entertain. It doesn't matter whether you are a pro at skiing or have never set foot on the slopes. You'll learn simple tools and even games that make wellness fun.

“When you read Mountain Mantras, you will learn how to:

  • Achieve greater success in life simply by adjusting how you perceive events around you.
  • Discover a 6-step framework you can use to overcome obstacles in your own life.
  • Use vision and visualization to turn your dreams into reality.
  • Learn strategies to engage fully in life, while experiencing improved health and vitality.”
