Description

After a tumultuous period of crisis, Victoria Price rebuilt her life by embracing a daily practice of joy, healing childhood wounds and reconnecting to the example set by her father Vincent, the famed actor. Her journey involved stepping away from externalities and into her father's legacy -- his love for people and compassion for others, his generosity of spirit and simple kindnesses, his enthusiasm for new experiences, and his love of life.
"As I've gotten older, I've come to understand that every day, in everything we do, we have a choice -- between expanding into our lives or contracting into our fears, into saying Yes to life ... or saying No," Victoria observes. This intimate and inspiring book shares the lessons learned from a powerful family heritage of remaining curious, giving back, and saying Yes. Join her as she shares the stories, experiences, and lessons that led her back to her truest self, including her lifesaving daily practice of joy.

"In The Way of Being Lost, Victoria does what all of us wish to do -- seek out her own relationship with spirituality and make the sacred a part of her everyday life, merely by observing the world around us in all its glory. Her writing shows the struggles of this way of being, but also its rewards." -- Miranda McPherson, author of Meditations on Boundless Love

"In her inspiring memoir The Way of Being Lost, Victoria Price walks us all back home. A must read for anyone who dares to live a life of joy." -- Rebecca Campbell, bestselling author of Light Is The New Black and Rise Sister Rise

"The Way of Being Lost takes us on the most exquisite journey that one can take -- the road home to one's true self ... told through the particular lens of the author's life. Though it takes great courage to make this trip, the rewards are beyond measure. And in the case of The Way of Being Lost, the journey is beautifully told, universally relevant, and deeply meaningful." -- Christiane Northrup, M.D., New York Times bestselling author of Goddesses Never Age

"Victoria Price's journey is a truly inspiring one. She looks both outward and inward to find joy all around her. She has been a close friend to me for years and I have always been moved by her story and thrilled that she is finally sharing it with the world." -- Melissa Etheridge, Grammy(R)- and Oscar(R)-winning musician and activist

"Victoria Price is a fighter -- for her belief in a world that is connected by Love, and for her own connection to Joy. Her commitment to living as her truest self is an inspiration for us all -- match point, Ms. Price." -- Martina Navratilova, tennis player, activist, wife, parent, and author of Shape Yourself and other books
