by Flic Manning
“An encouraging work that will provide hope to those living with chronic conditions.” — Kirkus

My deepest wish is that reading this book will inspire you to take a look at your human experience and see it for the beautiful, painful blessing that it is. Whether you face illness and pain or you want to build a scalable business, you have the power to do it no matter what life throws at you by doing it your perfectly imperfect way, with your perfectly imperfect body and mind.
Flic Manning has lived a life that is anything but traditional. With the odds stacked against her, facing incurable invisible diseases and mental health issues, she has walked the path less traveled to embrace the power she believes we all have inside no matter what complexities we face.
In this wellness memoir, Flic takes us through her deeply personal journey, from struggling with pain and illness as a dancer to finding her voice and stepping into her most human, raw, and powerful self as an entrepreneur and wellness advocate. Her story contains nuggets of wellness and mindset wisdom wrapped up in lessons from her journey that are sometimes dark, other times deeply funny, and always inspiring. You will be uplifted, but you will also discover the sustainable wellness steps you can take to make your life a profound and healthy one.
About the Author:
I live life through the lens of Wellness, or what I simply like to call “Human”. My 30 year journey has been anything but linear; from struggling with invisible illness as a Dancer to becoming a Wellness Author, Speaker and Entrepreneur. In my talks and book, I share not only 30 years of training as a Wellness Advocate, Neuroplastician, Holistic Pain Management Facilitator, Performer, Fitness and Dance educator; but my own personal experience in managing Crohn’s disease, chronic pain, mental health disorders, and my journey as an Entrepreneur.
It is my honour to shine a light on my fellow invisible illness warriors through my career, and share the many important lessons learned from them, with people in a diverse range of industries and backgrounds. I am proud to be the Founder of Corethentic, an Ambassador for Crohns’ and Colitis Australia, host of “The Human Experience by Flic Manning” and “Corethentic Zen Meditations” Podcasts; and have had my work mentioned and featured in Women’s Health Australia Magazine, Lorna Jane, OK! Magazine Australia, and The Women of Influence Podcast, to name a few. I specialise in demystifying the human body and mind, driving changes in productivity, quality of life, pain management, retention and mindset using my special secret sauce; a handful of courage, a dash of science, a sprinkle of energy and a teaspoon of care. I look forward to sharing my Wellness Memoir with you in 2021!
