Praise for Transgender Heart
“I have started your book. I am honoured to have a copy. As I read your words I thank the universe for you. You are so pure, so special and so in tune with the meaning of life! Thanks.” Joanne Goodall
“ I started reading your book and need to stop now to go to sleep! I just wanted to let you know that it’s difficult to stop reading it. I started with the Circle of Women chapter which moved me to tears. I have spent the last hour or so reading chapters randomly and deeply, appreciating and absorbing each one. What a powerful story you are telling and I’m so grateful that you did. Thank you Bodhi..for you and your Transgender heart.” Debora Abood
“It means so much to me to have non-conforming peers and it is so valuable to me to have that present in my family as well. You and Carol have helped alter my perception of myself and have helped me feel so accepted and loved...so much gratitude and love.” Jasper Kasper
Praise for Transgender Heart
“Bodhi, your book is amazing, I’m halfway through and bawling...your love for not just the people and animals-but the THINGS in your life that held you is amazing and I’m devastated that in my constant need to push down and push away my pain. I threw away such treasured possessions that held me in so many ways...one of which was a stuffed cow, that I used to talk to in my bunk bed.Thank you for reminding me of her! Reading your stories is exceptionally healing.” Molly Wilder
“Just finished this lovely read today. So inspirational to be reminded to be who we truly are and honour the people, places, animals and things that bring joy and meaning to our lives. Thank you Bodhi for sharing life’s lessons through a glimpse of your brave and beautiful soul & big heart.” Trish Nobile
“It’s such a wonderful read, I love the storytelling - placed by the door as a must see and where I sit and reflect on mportant matters.” Catherine Lamond
