Having recently recovered from cancer, Jan has written a new self-help guide for patients with serious illness, based on her experiences, called 'Lifting Your Spirits' which is being published by the Janki Foundation for Global Health Care in May 2008. The beautifully illustrated book and two audio CDs provide guided relaxation and meditation, short daily practices and positive thoughts which will literally 'lift your spirits'.
