A Conscious Peace

My iPhone Journal

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


In a series of gripping journal entries, “A Conscious Peace” chronicles a journey back from physical and emotional devastation following two horrendous and life-interrupting car accidents. As Ruchi pieces together her body and her spirit, she must also contend with the pain of renegotiating the world. 
The reader travels with her and her thoughts from an intimate perch, hearing the words she dared not even speak aloud to family and friends during her recovery, but found herself feverishly typing into emails to herself on her iPhone.
 Ruchi’s story is not from the point of view of a victim, but rather from that of someone who makes the decision to fight her way back to herself. 
“A Conscious Peace” uses a poetic, stream-of-consciousness style that reflects Ruchi’s own healing process and that evokes the myriad feelings, thoughts, fears, and hopes brought on by a major life trauma and the decision to heal from it.

Back of Book
Ruchi’s life was unfolding exactly as she might have planned it when she was a young girl. A respected teacher at a prestigious school, she had a successful, supportive husband, an outstanding thirteen-year-old son, and a dear little puppy who all loved her more than anything.  
And then Fate intervened. A careless driver cut across her and set off an avalanche of life changes that threatened to disrupt all of life as she knew it.  
As she struggled to come back from the chaos Fate had dealt her, she faced the most difficult choice of her life: give in to the bleak circumstances she found herself in, or stand up to Fate and fight back.  
In this raw, intensely personal journal, written entirely on her iPhone, Ruchi writes openly and honestly about the pain of healing and the difficulty of picking up the pieces of life. Her vulnerability offers a rare and moving glimpse into the process of healing from life’s traumas.
