About barbara techel (Sheboygan, Wisconsin Author)
I’m passionate about gently guiding women to their own inner awareness to help shift their perspective when they feel stuck so they can move forward in a more authentic way and live a life with more meaning and joy. I find joy in encouraging women to pause often, listen deeply, and capture what matters most.
Since 2004 I’ve been walking my own transformational and spiritual path doing the deep personal work of living a conscious and self-examined life. So many teachings and wisdom I've been blessed to receive from the dogs I've shared my life with.
My books include: "Wisdom Found in the Pause – Joie’s Gift" and "Through Frankie’s Eyes – One woman’s journey to her authentic self, and the dog on wheels who led the way," and children's book series, "Frankie the Walk 'N Roll Dog."
