Please join us on Saturday February 17th at 3:00pm as we celebrate the release of Victoria Price’s new book, “The Way of Being Lost: A Road Trip to My Truest Self

About the book:

Despite doing “all the right things” to successfully rebuild her life and her finances after a period of deep personal and professional turmoil where she lost almost everything, Victoria Price still felt something profoundly missing from her life. Her new book, THE WAY OF BEING LOST: A Road Trip to My Truest Self (Ixia, February 14, 2018, Hardcover, eBook), is a heartfelt, candid account of rediscovering her joy and purpose after years of struggle, confusion and hopelessness.

As a child, Victoria’s mother was terrified of her daughter’s free-spirited-ness, and tried to rein it in with common sense and tough love. As an adult still following her mother’s “rules”, she not only had lost her money, her home, and her relationship, she had also lost her self. Realizing she literally had nothing left to lose, Victoria understood that in order to live her truest life, she had to be willing to find a way to let go of her fears and the nagging voice in the back of her head.

Embarking on a metaphoric and literal road trip to find her way home to her truest self, Victoria chose to become intentionally homeless. Along the way, she learned how to reprogram the messages she had internalized, taking inspiration from her father Vincent Price’s example: his love for people and compassion for others, his generosity of spirit and simple kindnesses, his enthusiasm for new experiences, and his love of life. As she got to know her father again through attending horror conventions and celebrations of his life, Victoria decided to live as what she came to call THE WAY OF BEING LOST. Victoria learned how to reincorporate her father’s joie de vivre into her own life journey.
