Product Details

Praise

“Garski and Mastin have redefined wellness! From the irreverent psychology information, to the engaging fanfiction case studies, to the narrative meditations and yoga sequences, Starship Therapise changes up the narrative about what self-care can mean. Written for folks whose voices are often silenced for thinking too far outside the box, this book reimagines the box—and it’s bigger on the inside.”
—Kat Heagberg, editor-in-chief of Yoga International and coauthor of Yoga Where You Are

“Garski and Mastin seamlessly connect fandom and psychology, making caring for yourself—and rewriting the narrative of your life—a magical adventure. . . . No matter where you are on your healing journey, the Starship Therapise crew is there for you. I highly recommend this book for those who’ve felt left out of the wellness conversation in the past. I am so excited that nerds everywhere now have this resource!”
—Jordan Dené Ellis, cofounder of the Sartorial Geek

“Larisa Garski and Justine Mastin have created a radical wellness resource that needed to be in the world! Starship Therapise centers geeks, gamers, introverts, and other marginalized folks who have traditionally been left out of wellness spaces. . . . [It] is full of creatively adapted teachings and tools from yoga, mindfulness, and therapy that will empower readers to find their personal agency and make change in their lives through the power of stories. If you’ve ever been intimidated to step into a yoga studio or therapist’s office, or if you think that wellness is only for skinny rich white ladies, this book was created for you. I can’t wait to recommend it to my yoga students. This book is ready when you are—to use stories to unlock the possibilities for self-discovery, acceptance, and growth in your life (on your terms).”
—Amber Karnes, yoga teacher, trainer, creator of Body Positive Yoga, and cofounder of Accessible Yoga Training School

“ Justine and Larisa have created an informational, practical, and engaging resource for all geeks who are interested in a new way of looking at their mental health! Starship Therapise guides the reader through topics and terms everyone should know when entering a relationship with a therapist, while introducing tools, tricks, and methods through the lens of pop culture fandom. This book confirms to me that geeky wellness professionals and tools are necessary and here to stay!”
—Robyn Warren, MSEd, founder of the wellness community Geek Girl Strong

“ A fascinating and thought-provoking read.”
—Travis Langley, PhD, Henderson State University distinguished professor, psychologist, superherologist, and author of Batman and Psychology
