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!

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.

Little Book of Letting Go

By

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

Readers of Letting Go: The Pathway of SurrenderIt’s All Under ControlThe Art of Happiness, or Love is Letting Go of Fear, will love Little Book of Letting Go.

“This book is better than vitamins. It is a boost and thunderbolt.” —Sherry Richert Belul, founder of Simply Celebrate and author of Say It Now

2021 International Book Awards finalist in Self-Help: Motivational

When author and podcaster Polly Campbell got tired of her hoodie smelling like pizza and her days being clouded by midlife exhaustion, emotional burnout, and boredom, she decided to get off the couch and reclaim her vitality health. But could this burned-out, chronically ill, middle-aged mother of a teen rediscover her mojo? Yes! And so can you!

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. 

In this personal development book, find:

  • Easy-to-apply, practical strategies to ease stress, boost energy, and improve vitality health and well-being
  • Short chapters, delivered in a relatable, conversational tone, with plenty of humor

This masterful work by internationally known author and speaker Jean Shinoda Bolen provides an insightful look into the fusion of ecological issues and global gender politics.

And, she invites us to join the movement to save trees.

Stories of those making a difference. While there is still much work to be done to address environmental problems, there are many stories of individuals and organizations rising up to make a change and help save our planet. The words and stories that Bolen weaves throughout this book are both inspirational and down-to-earth, calling us to realize what is happening to not only our trees, but our people. By writing about both the work of organizations like Greenpeace and the UN Commission on the Status of Women, Bolen highlights her passions and shares her unique vision for the world.

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.

Life Is A Race and With So Many Responsibilities It Can Feel Overwhelming

“An elegant, powerful, and simple tool for finding serenity. Just what the world needs right now.” ―Richard Carlson, author of Don't Sweat the Small Stuff

Who are you? What are your true priorities? Your responsibilities may have taken over and are preventing you from living to your fullest potential. Dr. Kundtz gives you insight into key questions you should be asking.

Stop whatever you’re doing and enjoy the sunrise. Big things can grab your attention but don’t forget to turn around and find the serenity in stillness─the peace in a deep breath, and the happiness in remembering who you are.

With this valuable guide learn to:

  • Connect with the spiritual aspects of your life
  • Practice mindfulness and reduce stress

Finalist 2020 Indie Book Award for Mind, Body and Spirit

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

Help through the mourning process using self-healing methods. 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, 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 a cross pollination of proven psychological modalities, 12-step wellness tools, spiritual healing applications, meditations, and ancient yoga. She calls this self-help process “The Name Work”. 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. It 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 affirmations
  • Life hacks for addictive behaviors and moving though trauma and loss
  • A first-hand account of the author’s personal healing journey
