“I was enthralled from the opening pages…”


“Janine’s story is a deeply revealing look at the innermost thoughts of a younger Janine as her life was beset by tragedy and she was forced to question her most firmly held beliefs. It was both entertaining and enlightening in a way I would have never imagined. I could not help but feel her pain, her love and the profound ironies she encountered.” –Kelly Creso

The Search for Mother Missing

“A gripping memoir of adoption and two sisters’ search for their roots…. Janine Vance explores the implications of international adoption in writing that is clear and insightful, allowing readers to understand the journey from the perspective of the adoptees while exploring issues of the rights of the adoptees and how those rights can be abused.” – Christian Sia

Sometimes writing memoir requires a lifestyle change. Rise From the Dread by Janine Vance is just a little philosophy to escape stress, worry, and anxiety, especially in today’s Covid-Culture.


Need to “stay calm and carry on” in today’s harsh landscape which seems so divided on various levels?

Tired of the Coronavirus? Rise From the Dread was written for individuals brought up in a civilized society yet found it cold, harsh, and abrupt, and would rather gather wealth from nature—free stuff that makes life a little bit easier because nature is healing and can make all the difference in the world. A tiny shift in perspective can change everything.

If you ever find yourself facing challenging circumstances and looking for an complementary perspective, I write this to humbly share a tidbit of encouragement. Feel free to take whatever resonates with you and discard the rest.

As someone who has spent the past twenty years following my curiosity, researching and writing on a topic that has caused turmoil, the content of this book represents my source of inspiration, which fueled my ability to keep going and helped me find peace while writing.


“We all need a little quiet time! Feel isolated or alone? I like to use this time for my advantage.” ~ Janine Vance

The Power of Isolation

Find Infinite with knowledge with this book:
The Power of Isolation.

Sometimes we end up ignored and isolated through no fault of our own. Sometimes we are forced into loneliness, and before we know what has happened, we are facing the world without friends or confidants. Feelings of what seems like permanent separation can be heartbreaking—especially when we see what seems like everyone else enjoying each other’s company, being “liked,” and “liking” others all around us. We might wonder, Why don’t they like me? This is the human experience and it’s best to prepare ourselves with various coping strategies.

What People Are Saying:

“Zen with a helping of a number of other techniques.”

Rise From the Dread  by Janine Vance is a wonderful book filled with all sorts of self help information. The book is simple to understand and reference back to as each chapter focuses on a different topic, so no searching through an entire book to find that one thing you want to read again. Rise From the Dread contains information on things like breathing, cleansing teas, nutrition (but not detailed diets), philosophy, thinking techniques, mindfulness, etc. It really pulls a number of different self-help philosophies and techniques into a nice concise and easily accessible and understandable book. I would highly recommend Rise From the Dread if you want a book that you can reach for when you need a boost or reminder that life is not as back as you night think sometimes. You just need to stop and smell the roses deeply with a hot cup of ginger or ginseng tea in your hands.

“Great help when things are spiraling.”

When things are spiraling out of control, I depend on the reminders from books like this to check in, go deep and re-center to find my place where all answers come from. Great book – find your ZEN – we all need help.

“Just what I needed.”

I really liked this book. It is a gentle reminder of the important things in life. All winter I worked 60-70 hours a week and needed this book at this time. I plan on following many of the suggestions to get my own peace back.

“Lots of information packed into a very readable book!”

This is a wonderful compilation of everything you need to know! Each chapter is a new subject, which of course you can study deeper if you want to, but this author gives a very thorough overview of how to get in touch with ourselves and achieve healing and health. I’ve been delving into self-healing for over a year now, and had I found this book at that time, I would have been way ahead of the game. Topics and explanations include Taoism, meditation, Ayurvedic medicine, and essential oils to name just a few.

“When you just need to take a little time out…”

Sink into some calm and stillness and go within. Release judgement and learn about yourself so you can let go what doesn’t serve.

“I found comfort with this book and it opened my eyes to another way to take care of myself.”

This book gently reminded me of the power of the words I use to describe myself. It surprised me with unconventional alternative approaches to help me find peace again-something found less now in the mainstream. I also learned about the basics of eastern philosophy. It opened me up to see the meaning in the physical world and to live from authenticity to let words flow onto paper. I’d recommend it to my clients.

“A Good Book…”

it’s a good book. great writing and easy to follow. highly recommend. will read many times over.

“Unique way of viewing yourself and the world.”

Very unique way of viewing life and the world even during times of distress and how to redirect are energy to all the positives in are life and world.”

“Gentle Wisdom for the Heart, Mind, and Soul”

This book in gently insightful into several themes that concern us as humans living at this point in history. The author blends Eastern thought and applies it to life in the West. The book is divided into twenty-plus chapters that are on different topics. The topics are interrelated and several greater themes emerge like the meaning of nature in our mechanized, technical lives and the different levels of healing that the body, mind, and soul may need. The author has an easy-to-understand way of writing even on some of these more difficult and abstract topics. She gently and kindly encourages us to explore our mental patterns that may or may not be working for us and those around us. At the end, she even includes her own favorite guided meditation. If you’re looking for a book to get you thinking about some of the deeper aspects of what it means to be human, you might enjoy the essays in this book. There’s much food for thought here, so I recommend that you read and digest only one or two chapters/essays at a time to get the most benefit from this book. I also suggest making a little note to yourself at the top of each chapter about what it means to you so that you can more easily come back to it if you find yourself grappling with the topic of the chapter.
