About Book/Author

Whether you find yourself struggling with extremely challenging relationships, dealing with known codependency issues, or yearning for a deeper connection with yourself, this book offers creative possibilities and encouragement for when your journey gets sticky.

Codependent Yogi, author Stephanie Pappas, offers us her candid, thought-provoking, and eclectic perspectives on codependency and relationships from the standpoint of a humbled, yet experienced yoga practitioner and teacher. Presented in short “chapterettes,” Stephanie weaves together her personal insights and experiences with wisdom from the Buddhist and yogic traditions to give us new ideas for freeing our minds and spirits.

Stephanie Pappas’s search for self-awareness and inner peace led her to 11 years of intensive yoga study and practice, meditation, and silent retreats with her Indian Guru, but still she found intimate relationships overly challenging. Not only did she continue to hunger for a deeper level of self-love and acceptance; life got messier with each partnership she entered.

For Stephanie the discovery of the concept of codependency was crucial to her own healing process. “Codependency” is a term that psychologists use to describe a set of personality characteristics that many of us develop while growing up with emotionally unstable, addicted, or mentally ill family members. Codependency can distort our sense of self-esteem, exaggerate our need for approval, stifle our enjoyment of life, and lead us to obsess over our relationships. Worst of all, it can render us unable to properly love and care for ourselves.

Let Stephanie’s bright spirit and authentic style, inspire and remind you of your own potential to heal your relationships from the inside out—starting with yourself first.
