Many of us have a difficult time finishing a book, let alone writing a memoir, yet author Kay Eck knew she was destined to write about her journey in some aspect. She just never knew it would be about a topic as personal as divorce.
“The most difficult thing for any of us is to be vulnerable enough to be seen for who we really are,” Eck said. “But that's the only thing that can heal us. I wrote the book to heal myself, and I am sharing my story to help others heal themselves.”
Eck describes herself as an “astute observer of the devastating and incandescent, shared human journey.” Her career path has tapped into the fields of journalism, public relations, motherhood, fine arts, business management and yoga. Eck is the founder of Shine Yoga in Batavia, where she actively devoted herself to creating a community of conscious and purpose-filled life.
Mentoring others along a sacred path of self-love, Eck’s first work, "Divorce: a love story," has received heartfelt reviews since its launch in November.
“I've been very touched by the support I have received, and awed by the courage of people willing to try a new way forward through divorce,” Eck said. “Honestly, I am humbled by people's commitment to healing, because pain is easier to ignore or avoid. It must be faced and experienced to be healed, and that is a brave journey.”
"Divorce: a love story" is more than a peek into one woman’s journey through divorce. Eck, in fact, feels she’s “flung open the front door and the windows” of her life.
