Product description

From the Publisher

Flying on the Inside is the story of a truly astonishing life. Rachel Gotto has faced hardship and tragedy, but her journey to the other side is incredibly inspirational.

Rachel first lost her brother, then her husband—while she was pregnant—before being diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. Anybody could be forgiven for letting that defeat them. But Rachel was determined not just to live but to thrive, and how she got to that point, from finding peace and purpose at sea, to practicing compassion in her community, to developing a new sense of adventure, is at the heart of this book.

Set on the vivid West Cork coast, the wild sea a backdrop to Rachel’s experience, Flying on the Inside made me discover a renewed sense of the beauty in my own life. I’m sure you will feel that too.

—Victoria Pepe, Editor

About the Author

Rachel Gotto was born and grew up in Glandore in West Cork, a few short steps from the Atlantic Ocean. An adept boat person from an early age, and most at home on the waves, it was there she developed the tenacious spirit that later proved invaluable when faced with a litany of personal traumas and tragedies.

Having lost her closest brother as a young man to cancer, Rachel was six months pregnant with her daughter when her husband died in a tragic diving accident. Diagnosed a few years later with a life-threatening brain tumour, she underwent life-saving surgery that resulted in her becoming paralysed. What followed was slow and painful recovery marred by a growing dependence on her prescribed medication.

Now a celebrated keynote speaker, life coach and clinical hypnotherapist, Rachel lives on the west coast of Ireland, in County Galway, where she enjoys being in nature. She loves to swim, fish, read, walk, keep pet hens, and spend time with family and friends.

Thank you so much for following me. Flying on the Inside has been a whole life time in the making and it feels wonderful now to be sharing my story with the world.

I continue to live and work in Galway, Ireland. I love the energy and the ancientness of the landscape and being here continues to keep me spiritually enriched. Since my recovery, it has been my privilege to serve others in various forms, through my hypnotherapy and coaching practices and through speaking about my journey of trauma to full recovery. I especially like to shine a light in the dark for those still walking that lonely road to healing. If you are struggling right now, you have my empathy and my heart. I know how much tenacity it takes, and how much fortitude one must find to keep going, but keep going you will, and one day the sun will shine again in your world. And until that moment, don't give up - continue to believe anything is possible, and if you question this, please read my story and you will begin to believe! x Follow me on Twitter @RachelGotto and on Instagram @rachelvgotto
