Sensual, Provocative, Thought Provoking.

Inspiring, this story touches on so many heart strings from cultural, to deeply personal. Part I is just the warm up for Parts II and III. The Trilogy tells the story of healing, transformation and personal growth while going deep into the magical mystery of Cuba’s culture, music and dance.

“One can read for a bit and then close the eyes and imagine what it would be like to experience the tidal flow and the heartfelt beat so well portrayed in Cheri’s passion for writing.
Check it out if you dare to look at things a bit differently.”

Excellent story of the mysteries and spiritual passion revealed in Cuba. A woman’s story of reclaiming her own power and knowing her deepest self through the music, dancing, and drumming that is part of everyday life for Cubans. A beautiful telling of the people and culture that is ancient and robust. A must read.

This is a story for anyone searching for their own authentic self. Cuba has always been a place of mystery for me and now I know I must go to experience it for myself.


“I just read Breath of Cuba. I love the way Cheri describes the wind. The love affair she had with the wind and with herself. Oya is what they call the wind in Cuba. The way Cheri describes Cuba with an innocence is important. It is important people get this. She completely gets it.I enjoyed going on this journey with her and look forward to being able to read Part II and breathe in “The Breath of Cuba” once more.”

I thoroughly enjoyed reading my paper copy of The Breath of Cuba!  Every time Cheri Shanti dares to discard another layer, and peels off, sheds, ditches, elements of her North American cocoon and breathes into the much freer and more liberated Afro-Cuban way of being. I celebrate with her! She’s sharing her path of adventure in this book!  Whoever you are… you can get yourself a copy of this book and celebrate too!”

“Can I just say that I just read the very beginning of your book. Down to Single Woman Bliss- and I have goosebumps. I FEEL your passion and love. I have goosebumps because reading some of those words– I feel some of the same things pulsing through my whole body. I am so hungry for more. More of the book and more of Cuba, that is. Beautifully written. I am so excited to be reading this. Thank you thank you thank you!”

“I love the fact that the story is not about getting the love from others but finding it within yourself.  I think it is provocatively sensual and thought-provoking. It makes us all want to live a richer life, full of possibilities.” 

~ Kristina Sutcliffe

“I love it! The way you write it just makes me want to continue to read more and more.  I can visualize what you are talking about from both my own experience being in Cuba and also from my exposure to different cultures and traveling. Well done Cheri!”
