The Cancer Whisperer

How to let cancer heal your life

By Sophie Sabbage

  • Hardback
  • £14.99

The self-published phenomenon that has helped thousands of people - updated with a new chapter.

'A brilliant book, for anybody who is living with cancer, and it affects us all...this is invaluable.' - ITV Lorraine

This book does not offer a cure for cancer. It offers a cure for your fear of cancer.

Sophie Sabbage's breakthrough book combines practical advice with a new approach that turns traditional attitudes to cancer on their head.

Sophie Sabbage was diagnosed with late stage 'incurable' lung cancer in October 2014. She was 48 years old, happily married with a 4-year-old daughter. Since that day - when doctors told Sophie that her prognosis was poor - she has been on a remarkable journey of healing and transformation that has reshaped her vocation as well as changed her life for the better.

The Cancer Whisperer chronicles Sophie's extraordinary relationship with cancer and the methods that she has used for dealing with fear, anger, denial and grief. The essence of 'cancer whispering' was born of Sophie's determination to take cancer off the battlefield and into the classroom. Instead of going to war with it, Sophie has chosen to listen to it, learn from it and choose her own response to it.

Sophie offers a radically different way of relating to this disease both mentally and practically: she shares the research she has done, the treatments she has chosen, the diet she follows and the resources that she feels have made the biggest differences in the hope that they will help others cut through the mass of information out there.

Sophie says: 'This book is for the cancer patient who wants to remain a dignified, empowered human being even when your doctors and diagnosis are scaring the hell out of you. It is also for the cancer patient who has a hunch that there is something for them to learn, gain or even be transformed by - if they just knew how to relate to this disease differently to the way most of society does. It is for the cancer patient, perhaps any patient.'

Biographical Notes

Sophie Sabbage is an author, speaker, facilitator and patient activist. She has worked in the field of human development and esoteric psychology since 1994, both as a senior trainer with the More To Life educational charity and as the leader of her own business consultancy for twenty years. She has been teaching people to learn from their lifeshocks in diverse contexts for most of her adult life.

Following an incurable cancer diagnosis in 2014, Sophie became a passionate patient activist, helping cancer patients around the world to navigate the emotional challenges of the disease and to take charge of their own treatment.

Sophie's academic background is primarily in English Literature, having fallen in love with books at an early age. She is an agent of change who measures leadership not by how many followers someone has, but by how many other leaders they create.


She is happily married to John Sabbage and is the proud mother of their daughter, Gabriella.

A brilliant book, for anybody who is living with cancer, and it affects us all...this is invaluable. — ITV Lorraine
There are only a handful of books that I recommend. Sophie Sabbage's book, The Cancer Whisperer, just rose to the top of my list. It will guide you through self-discovery and empower you to create a healing milieu in your body, mind and spirit. — Daniel Kennedy Contreras, MC, Pyscho-Oncology Counsellor and Executive Director, Oasis of Hope Hospital
Sophie Sabbage is a force. The effortless beauty of her writing insinuates her powerful messages deep within the reader, and I found myself brought to tears with regularity. There is enough poetry, passion and purpose compressed into this small volume to propel you to reconsider every aspect of your life in the most fundamental way. Whilst aimed fairly and squarely at those with cancer, The Cancer Whisperer is also a 'must read' for family and friends who seek to understand the 'inside experience' of cancer and the ways which they can be a genuine support and help. — Robin Daly, Founder of the Yes To Life UK cancer charity
A beautiful love letter to cancer. . .one of the most moving and powerful books I have ever read...Genuinely amazing. — Tim Dingle BSc (Hons) MIBiol PGCE MBA Mediator, author, comedian and founder of Be Amazing Every Day
If you are one of us who have or has had cancer please read Sophie's book. Hear the whisper that carries her wisdom that will enable you to let cancer heal your life. — Linda Brown, Chiropractor and breast cancer patient
Written with great intensity and economy, it is like a great book of poetry - an intimate companion in a time of fear, when clear-eyed, well-informed, uncompromising friendship is most appreciated. — Professor William Torbert, creator and author of Action Inquiry: The Secret of Timely and Transforming Leadership.
I'm bowled over by Sophie's book. This is wisdom from a huge, generous heart and formidable intelligence. Profound, passionate, lucid, Sophie presents a new way of responding to cancer by attuning, going deeper, getting on purpose, making clear decisions about action and treatment...The Cancer Whisperer is a brilliant and inspiring guide, in fact, for all of us when we feel defeated by body, mind, illness or challenging life events. — Rosie Jackson, Author, B.A. D.Phil., creative writing teacher
Sophie, thank you for your implausible gorgeousness and generosity. I am sitting here blurry eyed with a snotty nose and red eyes after reading your. . . what? Story, book, life? I feel alive now...My soul gives great thanks to you for breaking my heart tonight. — Jason Harrison, Life Coach and Transformational Facilitator
Sophie's book is inspiring, informative and motivating. It is a tribute to all those who have not given up, all those who have followed their own heart and taken their healing into their own hands, with or without conventional medicine. — Dr. Dana Flavin, Physician, Scientist, Pharmacologist and Founder of Collmed, the Foundation for Collaborative Medicine and Research
If you want a reason to get up in the morning and smile at the world, then read The Cancer Whisperer to find out how she got there. It will make you cry, too. — Maggie Pagano, journalist who writes for the Independent and the International Business Times.
What a magnificent book!...One of the gifts of this book is how it honors the trio of orthodox medical advice, alternate modalities and one's own sense of internal rightness. It is a moving story and a rich offering of coaching and sharing, resources and encouragement. — Bruce Nayowith, M.D.
This is medicine for the soul from a soulful cancer thriver. — Kelly Turner, PhD, New York Times Bestselling Author of Radical Remission: Surviving Cancer Against All Odds
Sophie is an extraordinary human being. Prepare to cry, then feel you can do anything. — Red Magazine

Lifeshocks

Sophie Sabbage
Authors:
Sophie Sabbage

HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED IF LIFE IS TRYING TO TELL YOU SOMETHING?This is a book about all the unwanted and unexpected moments in our lives. They surprise us, they blindside us. They shock us. They command our attention. Some bounce off us, other strike deep into our being. These moments are collision points between how we see life and how life actually is. These are lifeshocks.In her new book Sophie explains how lifeshocks awaken us. She offers her own deeply personal story as well as other case studies as a vehicle for bringing the theory and teachings to life. She focuses on three kinds of lifeshocks we all receive: limiting lifeshocks which challenge our arrogance and appetite for control; exposing lifeshocks which challenge our affectations and pretences; and evoking lifeshocks which challenge our closed-heartedness.This groundbreaking new book reveals how these lifeshocks can bring healing, transformation and peace.

Staring at Lakes

Michael Harding
Authors:
Michael Harding

Throughout his life, Michael Harding has lived with a sense of emptiness - through faith, marriage, fatherhood and his career as a writer, a pervading sense of darkness and unease remained.When he was fifty-eight, he became physically ill and found himself in the grip of a deep melancholy. Here, in this beautifully written memoir, he talks with openness and honesty about his journey: leaving the priesthood when he was in his thirties, settling in Leitrim with his artist wife, the depression that eventually overwhelmed him, and how, ultimately, he found a way out of the dark, by accepting the fragility of love and the importance of now.Staring at Lakes was a number one bestseller in Michael's native Ireland and won three BGE Irish book awards in 2013, including Non-Fiction Book of the Year. 'It's rare for a memoir to demand such intense emotional involvement and rarer still for it to be so fully rewarded' - SUNDAY TIMES.'Staring at Lakes is a raw and honest account of a life in depression. Harding's writing, which is rich and lyrical, is especially astute when describing the pain of living with an illness that has the ability to suck the joy out of any occasion.' - DAILY EXPRESS
