Barrie’s Vanessa Marie Dewsbury will be signing copies of her best-selling book heart is where the home is at Chapters, Sept. 8, 2018, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Released Jan. 11, 2018, heart is where the home is has captured the hearts and souls of readers from around the world, reaching best-selling status in three categories on Amazon, and currently holds more than 60 five-star reviews on and

"I was truly inspired by this book. I have read many books over the past ten years on living a happy life as I suffer from depression and none of them have awakened me the way this book did. I read it quickly because I couldn't wait to turn each page to see what was next,” states one reviewer on “I'm currently reading it for a second time and taking my time with each page to thoroughly enjoy Vanessa's messages and beautiful words."

Inspired by her health issues in 2012, Dewsbury, who is also a Reiki Master/Teacher and Mindset and Self Development Coach, began her journey of natural healing after unsuccessful attempts to find answers through Western medicine. She eventually found relief through natural healing therapies such as acupuncture, meditation, yoga, and natural herbs.

By connecting within and addressing old wounds, she was able to release and heal what was unconsciously affecting her health emotionally, mentally, and physically. This internal shift not only healed her health issues but awakened a well of wisdom and newfound perspective on life, which she shares with those around her.

“I lived most of my life being who everyone else wanted me to be. I conformed to the norm and neglected my mental, emotional, physical, and even my spiritual needs,” said Dewsbury. “I found myself in unhealthy and unhappy relationships, unconsciously attracting what I thought I was worthy of and I lost who I was, who I was meant to be. This left me feeling depleted, anxious, sick, unbalanced and in dire need of reconnecting with myself, my soul.”

Chapters is located at 76 Barrie View Dr., in Barrie.
