From the beloved creator, workshop facilitator, and author of How to Not Always Be Working comes a guide to leaning into the unknown even when it feels as though everything is in flux.

Getting to Center is an empathetic offering to those who are looking for a roadmap for finding their way back to equilibrium. This book meditates on endings, grief and joy, hope, addiction, and beginnings, pairing Marlee's own experiences and wisdom with practical exercises and tools for creating balance and understanding through the natural changes of life.

In her own constant shifting, improviser and entrepreneur Marlee Grace found ways to pivot within her career, while still maintaining constant threads throughout. She has developed practices that have supported her through opening and closing multiple businesses, a divorce, several cross-country moves, choosing sobriety, and more.

Grace's book is for anyone who feels overwhelmed and anxious about these unpredictable times. Getting to Center helps readers feel less alone, and offers a guide to cultivating resources we can replenish and depend on within ourselves.

Marlee Grace is a dancer and a writer. Marlee's personal work focuses on improvisation through movement and art making, as well as bringing together the voices of artists through her podcast and artist residency program. As an author and workshop facilitator of How to Not Always Be Working, which she has taught to groups across the country, she delights in the process of showing up to her own practice of being human, and finds great joy navigating it with others. She is currently based near Santa Fe, NM.

Fariha Róisín is a multidisciplinary artist, born in Ontario, Canada. She was raised in Sydney, Australia, and is based in Brooklyn, New York. Róisín’s work exists at the intersections of her identity as a queer, Muslim, South Asian woman interested in spirituality, race and pop culture. Her writing has been featured in The New York Times, Al Jazeera, The Guardian, and Allure. She has also pioneered a refreshing and renewed conversation about wellness, contemporary Islam and queer identities. She is the author of the poetry collection How To Cure A Ghost (2019), as well as the novel Like A Bird (2020).
