Product description


"Living Human is a must-read! Flic Manning is vulnerable about her own journey, and her powerful and inspirational story makes everyone out there feel a little less alone and a lot more empowered. You truly feel the pain that one goes through having a chronic illness. What Flic has accomplished in her life is that much more impressive knowing what she's had to endure and overcome. So many of the battles we all face on a daily basis aren't visible to the eye, but they dominate our lives and can be lonely and crippling. Flic calls attention and awareness to those internal struggles, so those around us become gentler and more understanding to us, instead of just glossing over our battles and continuing to make us feel invisible. No book I've ever read prior to Flic's calls attention to our internal challenges in this manner. Instead of continuing to remain invisible and silent, Flic's story will change the world and help so many battling internal illnesses finally feel seen. Until reading Living Human, you don't really have a full appreciation for the battles so many are facing on a daily basis. Similar to the mental health movement, Flic's book is going to change the world and make us kinder, more compassionate and more understanding towards those trying to live their best lives, while also facing chronic illnesses. Living Human is a guide to be kinder to yourself, to those around you and is a reminder that none of us are alone. Flic is a true leader and game-changer in this world. Reading her book will make you a better person." --Whitney Holtzman, Best-selling author of You Are the First You

"Flic Manning opens her heart in Living Human, and shines a light on winning through pain and trauma. It's humanising and it makes visible the hidden illnesses that so many people endure everyday. Flic has turned trauma into her superpower and inspires anyone going through any pain that they too can win at their game." -- "Fred Schebesta: Founder of Finder, Author of Go Live, AFR Young Rich Lister"

"I don't know anyone else on the planet but Flic Manning, who has the personal insights, empathy and above all, the wisdom and inspiration to help others triumph over invisible illness. If that's you and you want wise counsel, loving support and the motivation and strategies to enjoy your best health, make this book your bible." --Mark Bunn; Best-Selling Author of Ancient Wisdom for Modern Health

"This compassionate book not only describes, with such deep humanity, the experience of living with chronic illness, but offers important ideas on how to find yourself again. Flic Manning has used a challenging life living with illness to provide a profound story of hope and resilience. If you have an invisible illness or know someone who does - Living Human is a must read. I'm so grateful for the generous way that Flic Manning has found the words to describe what it is like to live with invisible illness. This book will give such great comfort to the 'invisible buddies' while providing such an important insight for their allies. Flic Manning shows how understanding invisible illness can be a gateway to a better way of living. This book is jam packed with everything you need to reclaim your life." --Jacinta Parsons, ABC Radio Broadcaster & Author of Unseen

"Flic Manning's Living Human shares the real and raw truth of living with chronic illness and the complexity of invisible illness. Flic shares an empowering message for all women to trust and advocate for themselves and the best possible medical care (traditional and alternative medicine). Flic has created a potent recipe for sustainable wellness which actually works with a body that's experiencing illness not against it. She highlights our all too common response of trying to override the pain, brain fog and despair but most importantly she illuminates the alternatives beyond 'just thinking positively.' Flic's memoir is a welcome addition to the growing chronic illness public stories movement and makes more space for all of us to be seen, heard and welcomed." -- "Michelle Irving: Host of The Pajama Interviews Podcast & Founder of Finding Freedom with Chronic Ill"

"Flic Manning's wellness memoir, Living Human is empowering, articulate and poised. Her story is so powerful making this book a must read for anyone working with individuals battling an invisible disability or illness; to understand that their condition does not make them invisible, in fact it makes them unique, brave, and strong. This memoir is also a reminder to people coping with illness that they are much more than their condition, and that they have the potential to thrive despite their circumstances." -- "Aneka Srinivasan, Mental Health Foundation of Australia"

"In Living Human, Flic Manning generously and authentically shares her feelings, thoughts and reflections on a life with autoimmune illness; a gift to the Crohn's and colitis community and anyone living with or caring for someone with an invisible and chronic health condition. Flic has designed a holistic framework, sharing her top 12 Wellness Tips and taking a deep dive into each. There are many insights in this shared lived experience that can be helpful in self-management as well as developing a deeper understanding for people you know or love who live with these challenges. As an Ambassador for Crohn's and Colitis we are so proud of Flic and her wellness memoir. This bold and aspirational account is the 'gift that keeps on giving' for those fearlessly living with an incurable health condition and struggling to create a deeply meaningful life." -- "Prof. Leanne Raven, CEO Crohn's & Colitis Australia"

"Readers who suffer from similar illnesses will find many parts of this book validating, and others will gain a greater level of empathy regarding the unseen suffering that many other people experience.

An encouraging work that will provide hope to those living with chronic conditions." -- "Kirkus Reviews"

I live life through the lens of Wellness, or what I simply like to call “Human”. My 30 year journey has been anything but linear; from struggling with invisible illness as a Dancer to becoming a Wellness Author, Speaker and Entrepreneur. In my talks and book, I share not only 30 years of training as a Wellness Advocate, Neuroplastician, Holistic Pain Management Facilitator, Performer, Fitness and Dance educator; but my own personal experience in managing Crohn's disease, chronic pain, mental health disorders, and my journey as an Entrepreneur.

It is my honour to shine a light on my fellow invisible illness warriors through my career, and share the many important lessons learned from them, with people in a diverse range of industries and backgrounds. I am proud to be the Founder of Corethentic, an Ambassador for Crohns’ and Colitis Australia, host of “The Human Experience by Flic Manning” and “Corethentic Zen Meditations” Podcasts; and have had my work mentioned and featured in Women’s Health Australia Magazine, Lorna Jane, OK! Magazine Australia, and The Women of Influence Podcast, to name a few. I specialise in demystifying the human body and mind, driving changes in productivity, quality of life, pain management, retention and mindset using my special secret sauce; a handful of courage, a dash of science, a sprinkle of energy and a teaspoon of care. I look forward to sharing my Wellness Memoir with you in 2021!
