Living A Loved Life

Awakening Wisdom Through Stories of Inspiration, Challenge and Possibility (Thinking Positive Book, Ladies Birthday Gift, and Readers of I Will Not Die an Unlived Life)

By Dawna Markova

Selected for The Best Spiritual Books of 2019 List ─ Discover Your Wisdom Within

An inspiring and evocative book reminding you that the discovery of how you can live a life you love is found hidden in the stories you tell about your life.

An inspirational book that shines a light on how each person carries a possibility that the rest of us need. Instead of hugs, Dawna Markova's midwife grandmother used to kiss the unique marks at the very end of her fingertips, calling them “promise prints.” She said that the moment each of us is born life makes a promise to the world that only we can fulfill. Nourished by this wisdom, Dawna grew to understand that discovering how you matter is what makes it possible for you to love your unique existence. Living A Loved Life is a particularly important book in these dark and fragmented times when so many of us have become convinced that they really can't and don't make a difference.

A motivational book. Dawna Markova Ph.D. has been a teacher, psychotherapist, researcher, executive advisor, and organizational fairy godmother. She has given empowerment, creativity, and spirituality presentations around the world to various corporate and non-corporate audiences. Living A loved life is an uplifting collection of stories woven from Dr. Markova’s own experience as well as those of her clients. Through them you can be involved in the dance of spiraling generations, in which the old empower the young with their wisdom and the young empower the old with the energy of new possibilities.

Perfect gift. These stories can guide you and help you find an untapped reservoir of capacity within, a connective force, a steady light in the depth of darkness. Living A Loved Life will leave you committed to never again diminish your mind or limit the capacity of your heart. If you liked Note To Self by Gayle King, I’ve Been Thinking…by Maria Shriver, On the Brink of Everything by Parker Palmer or Becoming Wise by Krista Tippet, you’ll love reading Living A Loved Life.

It’s Never Too Late to Live Your Life

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!

Create a Natural Learning Environment for Your Child

From the team that forever changed our view of how children learn, in their book How Your Child is Smart, comes a fundamental and intuitive prescription for natural learning right at home.

Natural learning starts at home. Anyone who spends time with young children recognizes their natural intelligence and resilient passion to learn. But as they try to meet the pressures and expectations of school, natural learning diminishes. Does it have to be that way? According to teachers Dawna Markova and Anne R. Powell, absolutely not. Whether a parent or educator, Learning Unlimited helps transform the homework hassle from a nightly struggle to an engaged learning initiative that uncovers the unique gifts of your child’s mind.

Learning from your child’s natural motivation. Filled with practical advice and compassionate support, this book is designed to honor your child’s innate intelligence with family engaged learning strategies. In Learning Unlimited, veteran teachers unveil how learning from homework can also function as a joint inquiry into your child’s special gifts. Designed for optimal parental involvement in education, this guide helps parents give children a competitive advantage by cultivating a life-long love of learning.

If you’re ready to take a step towards family engaged learning and have read The Gift of FailureThe Well-Trained Mind, or The Self-Driven Child, then you’ll love Learning Unlimited.

Giving Grief Meaning

By

A Unique New Therapy Tool for Healing and Self-Discovery

How inspired qualities and affirmations helped one psychotherapist honor her loved one, cope with grief, and find meaning.

Give Grief Meaning. How do you make sense of loss and tragedy? After the sudden and devastating loss of her infant daughter, Lily Dulan, a marriage and family therapist (MFT), psychotherapist and certified yoga teacher, meditated, prayed, and ruminated on the only thing she had left–her baby girl’s name. In Lily’s courage to address and move through her pain, she developed The Name Work, a cross pollination of proven psychological modalities, 12-step wellness tools, spiritual healing applications, meditation and ancient yoga. In her heartfelt memoir, Lily shares her healing journey and her method for unleashing the power in names and giving them special meaning to help move through the grief process in a thoughtful and transformative way.

What’s in a name? Meanings! The Name Work method teaches you how to assign special meaning and qualities to the letters in names–a deceased loved one’s or your own–and how to create positive affirmations for each letter’s attribute. The Name Work is a tangible and personal self-healing method for whatever obstacles arise. A unique, new wellness tool for healing and self-discovery, The Name Work also includes:

  • Affirmations, self-guided questions, meditations, and practices
  • An A-Z dictionary of qualities to help create your own Inspired Grouping of Qualities and affirmations
  • A first-hand account of the author’s personal healing journey

If you benefited from books like Finding MeaningIt’s OK That You’re Not OK, or Healing After Loss, then you’ll be inspired by Giving Grief Meaning.
