Martha Brettschneider is an author, blogger, speaker, master gardener, and award-winning photographer. In 2009, she was diagnosed with breast cancer, which reoriented her perception of body, mind, and spirit. A former left-brained international economist and stressed out mom, Brettschneider transformed into a meditation-touting creative finally at peace with the world. Blooming into Mindfulness chronicles that journey. She lives in Vienna, Virginia, with her husband, two sons, and her plant-eating golden retriever Apollo (who has taught her the art of letting go).
