    Quest For Life

    In September 1983, Petrea King was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia and told she would not see Christmas. Quest for Life is a best-selling book that offers a beacon of hope for others living with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses and for the people who love them or care for them professionally. Petrea draws on her knowledge and experience as a naturopath and meditation teacher who has worked with over 80,000 people facing health challenges. 

    Meditation and the integration of past traumatic experiences became paramount in Petrea's recovery, some of which was spent in a monastery outside Assisi in Italy. Since her remarkable recovery, Petrea has facilitated hundreds of programs for people living with cancer and other serious and chronic illnesses and Quest for Life forms the foundation of the residential program of the same name that are conducted by the Quest for Life Foundation. Petrea sees crisis as a catalyst for spiritual growth and understanding and as an opportunity for healing and peace. Warmly personal and thoroughly practical, Quest for Life radiates courage and conviction. Petrea can help you find the inner strength to face your own illness or to help those you care for. Quest for Life is brimming with Petrea's own healing experience, inspirational stories from her clients and hundreds of therapeutic techniques including how to:
    * create an environment for physical, mental, emotional and spiritual healing * control pain, sleep and side effects of medical treatment * overcome guilt, shame, grief and anger * establish rapport with doctors and family - including children * use support groups effectively * practice methods of relaxation, visualisation and meditation * reclaim joy and meaning in life

    "In my book 'Things Not To Say To Someone Who Has Cancer', I make specific mention of Petrea's book Quest for Life as being the only book about cancer I managed not to throw across the room whilst reading it!" Jo Hilder, Author of "Things Not To Say To Someone Who Has Cancer"

    “If there was only one book you could read to navigate your way through life challenging illness, Quest for Life would be the perfect choice”.  Joan Borysenko Phd, Author of "Minding the Body, Mending the Mind"
