Growing up, Anita Moorjani tried to mold herself into what was expected of her by others and by her culture, causing emotional and psychological triggers that she believes contributed to a four-year battle with cancer that shut down her organs and nearly took her life. In a coma in the hospital, as doctors prepared Anita’s family for her imminent death, she left her body and experienced a life with no limits, a freedom from physical and emotional pain, an understanding of what caused her cancer, and a choice to return to the living. Dying to be Me, now a New York Times bestseller, chronicles her early years of suppressing her real self, her journey to death and back, and the miraculous healing that followed. In writing this inspirational memoir, she hopes to help others benefit from what she learned about healing and living “as a reflection of who we really are,” and experience the unconditional love that is within and around us always.
