I Will Not Die an Unlived Life

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!

Take Your Skin to the Next Level with This Guide to Korean Skin Care

“This book feels like talking with a trusted friend, one so generous with practical advice and wisdom. I wish our Dermatology textbooks had chapters like these!” —Dr. Erin Tababa-Santos, creator of The Nerdy Derma

#1 New Release in Massage and Skin Ailments

Have you always longed for that fresh, glowing, no-makeup look? With this step-by-step guide to Korean skincare routines, anyone can attain healthy skin. But Skincare for Your Soul takes it one step further―it guides you to a place where skincare is also self-care.

The Korean skin care journey. As much as we’d like, glowing, clear skin doesn’t happen overnight. But there is beauty in the process―not just the results. Author Jude Chao links skincare to self-care culture, giving readers a practical guide to developing an ideal skincare routine and using it to help manage stress, anxiety, and depression. The Korean skincare routine invites us to look at our skincare not only as a way to reduce lines and wrinkles or clear up breakouts, but as a tool for developing our self-care habits.

Steady improvement is the goal. Photoshopped perfection is neither realistic nor a healthy goal. What matters is caring for our mental health and building our self-esteem by intentionally taking time each day to give our skin some love. But it starts with changing how we view skincare and developing a routine that fits our personal needs and goals, and Chao helps you do that.

Dive into Chao’s book on K-beauty and discover:

  • An easy-to-follow, step-by-step guide to skincare
  • A clear breakdown of skincare products (not brands), and pros and cons to help customize your routine
  • How Korean skin care can be a reliable and effective mental health management tool

Face Life Threatening Situations and Find Hope

“This book can be a companion to anyone in physical or mental pain and crisis.” —Louise L. Hay, author of You Can Heal Your Life

When confronted with a life threatening condition, most people think that doctors have the final word. But, Jean Shinoda Bolen reminds us that the mind has a powerful effect on a prognosis and the process of healing.

Everyone faces illness. Whether it’s a personal health crisis or sickness a loved one is experiencing, none of us escape this life without encountering some form of illness or death. While we can try to ignore the reality, internationally known author and speaker Dr. Jean Shinoda Bolen suggests we do the exact opposite: face it. By encountering the frightening world of serious illness and death, we can better uncover how it gives purpose to the journey of souls.

Trust what you know in your bones. Dr. Bolen shares how what we learn often connects to what we know to be true. As a psychiatrist and Jungian analyst, Dr. Bolen has an acute understanding of what shapes a person, particularly as it relates to one’s sense of balance and wholeness. Based on her knowledge and experience, she guides us to find the truth buried in our own bones.

A tool for help and healing. While encountering sickness is inevitable, healing often seems harder to come by. We are left broken open when life threatening illness hits. While there is no single key to recovery, it is rare to find healing without first addressing the pain. This book serves as a guide to finding purpose in the pain.

Read Close to the Bone and find:

  • An insightful book for anyone living with a life-threatening illness
  • Encouragement for facing illness by relying on the wisdom we all have within
  • A supplemental guide for those who want to form support circles

If books such as Invisible Acts of PowerWhen Things Fall Apart; or No Mud, No Lotus have helped you; then Close to the Bone is the next book you need to read.

Let It Go and Find Happiness

“Letting go—particularly of fear—has been my desire and goal for years. With the help of this book, I am finally beginning to do it!” —M. J. Ryan, author of Attitudes of Gratitude

2021 International Book Awards finalist in Spirituality: Inspiration

Life does not have to be as complicated as we often make it. Little Book of Letting Go shows us how to let go of the blocks that interfere with experiencing our natural state of wholeness, joy, and peace.

Let it go and shed what weighs you down. From long-harbored guilt to deep-rooted prejudices, many of us bear the weight of harmful tendencies in our daily lives. Whether we realize it or not, these things are actively holding us back from the happiness we long to attain. In this inspirational book, minister and counselor Hugh Prather provides a guide for mental cleansing. It is only in ridding our minds of the fear and judgments we cling to that we open the door for happiness.

Embrace opportunities as they come. The more we hold on to, the less room we have to take on more. If our minds are clouded by negativity, then we aren’t facing each day with the openness that it deserves. By facing each moment with enthusiasm, we pave the path for positive thinking and make the most out of every opportunity that comes our way.

Practical exercises and lasting tools. Changing how we think takes practice. This is why Prather doesn’t just tell us that it’s important to let go—he shares with us simple steps for how to go about letting go of things that hold us back. Through learning from Prather’s shared experiences and adopting the practices he offers, we can find happiness, peace, and a chance at spiritual renewal.

Inside discover:

  • A simple 3-step process for letting go
  • A 30-day plan for spiritual renewal
  • Personal stories from Prather

Sure, there are challenges, setbacks, and plenty of things that piss us off, but they don’t have to deplete us. They don’t have to leave us mentally exhausted or take our power. Instead, our energy can be refocused and redirected into things that we value.

Practical Mindfulness

Learn Calmness, Contentment, and Coping Skills

Practical Mindfulness is the one book I recommend to my patients, even when they don’t believe they want to start meditating." ―Lisa Goldstein, MD―Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist

Master the nuts and bolts of meditation, without the crystals and granola. This book is a no-nonsense, no-incense training guide to the life-changing benefits of mindfulness.

Training exercises that work. Practical Mindfulness approaches mindfulness and meditation from a hands-on, how-to, irreverent perspective–appealing directly to smart readers curious about meditation. By applying Dr. Sazima’s training routines, learn to spend more time in real engagement with the world. Cultivate a deeper appreciation of experiences, from the everyday to the extraordinary, and live your life more fully, wisely, and joyfully.

A practical approach to finding “home.” We all search for that safe, comfortable feeling of peace of mind–our inner “home.” When we face challenges–economic crisis or a life-threatening health problem–we can realize with blinding clarity there is no sustainable outside solution. Those without a more developed interior awareness can suffer stress, anxiety, and depression. Our real home, a place we can always return to no matter what, is actually inside of us. We’re practically there.

Meditation training from an expert. Dr. Sazima is a board-certified psychiatrist, educator of family doctors-in-training at Stanford’s Family Medicine Residency, and experience meditator and meditation teacher. He is also a survivor of a rare bone cancer who used the powerful practice of meditation to navigate his medical crisis. Now, he is on a “pay it forward” mission to help us gain a practical understanding and mastery of mindful awareness, and to show us why and how meditation works.

Readers of books such as 10% HappierThe Untethered SoulWherever You Go, There You Are; or Buddha’s Brain, will love Practical Mindfulness.
