I Will Not Die an Unlived Life

Reclaiming Purpose and Passion

By Dawna Markova

It’s Never Too Late to Live Your Life

I Will Not Die an Unlived Life is a little book with a big message. It can remind you of who you are and heal your life.” —Rachel Naomi Remen, MD, author of My Grandfather's Blessings and Kitchen Table Wisdom

In the 1980s, Dr. Dawna Markova was diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. Here begins her path towards rediscovery.

Feeling lost? I Will Not Die an Unlived Life follows Dr. Markova’s journey to find deeper meaning in life. In her book she guides readers down a path where they can discover their value and purpose. When we feel lost, she points out, we can either continue to live habitual lives and resign our strength—or we can choose to follow our passions.

What is passion? It’s normal to feel stagnant, to be at a loss for energy. Dr. Markova reconceptualises feeling lost as a period of passion's rest. With this, she asks questions that challenge us to slow down and have more conversations with ourselves.

How to find yourself again. Poetic and inspiring, I Will Not Die an Unlived Life is a collection of stories with meaning. Following Dr. Markova's own journey at making her life matter, she offers readers insight into how to:

  • Find personal balance
  • Reclaim passion and purpose in life
  • Focus attention and awareness on the present moment

If you enjoyed classic beach gifts like Gift from the Sea, or books like The Book of AwakeningLet Your Life SpeakHallelujah Anyway, or The Open Mind, then I Will Not Die an Unlived Life is your next read!
