Chaos to Clarity: Sacred Stories of Transformational Change, by best-selling authors Rev. Patricia Cagganello and Kathleen O'Keefe-Kanavos, is a collection of inspiring stories from people who transformed adversity into something positive. But what sets this book apart from others? … The authors.
Cagganello, an ordained interfaith minister, shares her perspective on how the Spirituality of Change is a catalyst for spiritual transformation and Kanavos, accredited in Psychopathology and Special Education, shares her perspective on the Psychology of Change and how the Butterfly Effect of change is part of Universal Oneness and our forward evolution as humans.
Chaos to Clarity showcases more than 30 storytellers who were willing to bare their souls during their darkest hours and share the challenges they faced head-on. Offering their spiritual and psychological expertise, Cagganello and Kanavos provide their differing points of view when commenting on the four different sections in the book — Love and Relationships, Health and Wellness, Grief and Loss, and Life Journey and Identity. The result is a marriage of minds that birthed Chaos to Clarity.
“There is a power and a resonance in our stories, our shared experiences,” Cagganello offers. “Important events in our lives are our change agents. The more significant the event — or rather, the more significant the emotion the event generates — the more attention we pay, and the greater the opportunity we have for transformation,” adds Cagganello.
“This timely book is a collaborative work of love and clarity on many levels. Our goal is to offer this written worldly wisdom in story-form as a blueprint for people rebuilding their lives, and as a GPS for those still moving towards clarity,” says Kanavos.
Rev. Cagganello is CEO and Founder of Sacred Stories Media, Sacred Stories Publishing, an award-winning book publishing and marketing company, and Sacred U, an online course division. An ordained interfaith, interspiritual minister and sacred storyteller, Cagganello is a believer in “raising the vibration of the planet” to one of respect and honor for the sacred nature of ourselves and all living things. Before she was ordained, Cagganello served six years as a sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps as well as many years in the corporate and educational worlds. She is the author of two previous books, God is in the Little Things: Messages from the Animals and God is in the Little Things: Messages from the Golden Angels, and co-author of the poetry book Scanning For Signal.
O'Keefe-Kanavos is accredited in psychopathology and special education. She taught psychology at University of South Florida's Fort Myers branch and was an instructor of the severely emotionally handicapped for 10 years, two years as special education department head. Later, she used a combination of dreams and conventional medicine to beat back cancer — three times. She was actually a research subject in the Breast Cancer Dream Research Program at Duke University. In Dreams That Can Save Your Life, O'Keefe-Kanavos and co-author Dr. Larry Burk compiled true accounts of people whose dreams were later validated as well as the results of research studies that support the precognitive power of dreams.
