Let Go Now

By

Meditations and Reflections to Help End Codependence      

“In 200 short, straightforward daily lessons illustrating the many forms that detachment can take in one’s life. Casey’s latest is an easy reference guide for those seeking recovery or peace.”—Publishers Weekly

Do you ever feel like you might be giving other people too much power over your mood? Do you find yourself feeling immobilized by expectations and demands? The cure for facing codependence, says Karen Casey, is detachment.

Control your life by letting go. When we remove codependent behavior from our lives, we discover a life of balance and freedom. Whether you find yourself tempted to become enmeshed in other people’s problems or rushing to their rescue, Casey reminds us to stop controlling behavior—that we cannot control anyone or anything beyond ourselves.

What is codependency and detachment? Inside, you’ll find gems of insight for every stage of your codependence recovery journey. Through 200 recovery meditations and reflections, Casey explores how to set boundaries, control emotions, face attachment issues in adults, and more. Inspirational and easy to read, Let Go Now guides us away from taking care of others, and toward taking care of ourselves.

If you’re looking for a codependent book or an attachment book—like Melody Beattie books, The Power of Letting Go  Codependent No More, or The Language of Letting Go book—you’ll love Let Go Now.

Funny Stories About White Privilege and Black Identity from a Black Nerd’s Perspective

Author and Ebony Magazine podcaster Ron Dawson lends his wit and comical social commentary to tell the story of how one of the “whitest” and nerdiest of black men finally woke up, found his blackness, and lost all inhibitions at dropping the f-bomb.

A coming-of-age story of black identity. In the suburbs of Atlanta, Ron was a black nerd (aka “blerd”) living very comfortably in his white world. He loved his white wife, worked well with his white workmates, and worshiped at a white church. On November 8, 2016, everything changed when Trump became POTUS. Ron began a journey of self-discovery that made him question everything—from faith to friendships.

Part social commentary and part fantastical narrative. This book goes where no blerd has gone before. In a psychedelic way, Ron is guided by a guardian “angel” in the guise of Samuel L. Jackson’s character from Pulp Fiction. Sam is there to help Ron, well, be more black. Ron confronts his black “sins” and wrestles with black identity, systemic racism, and what it means to be “black” in America. 

Throughout this book, you’ll learn lessons from a man who deconstructs his faith and confronts personal demons of racial identity. Gain new perspectives through these funny stories that will reshape your current views on black identity.

Inside, you’ll find:

  • The funniest social commentary on white privilege and black identity
  • Political satire wrapped in funny stories of a man’s journey to confront the systemic racism and Christian hypocrisy around him
  • Comical if not uncomfortable conversations about what it means to be black in America

Join Yon Rou’s adventure as he encounters kings, Nobel laureates, and the Mob. Witness this martial master’s incarceration in a high-mountain Ecuadorian hellhole and fight for survival in Paraguay’s brutal thorn jungle. 

Meet celebrities along the way. A story of love, loss, persistence, triumph, and mastery, The Monk of Park Avenue is peopled with the likes of Milos Forman, Richard Holbrooke, Paul McCartney, Warren Beatty and now-infamous opioid purveyors, the Sackler Family. Yun Rou’s memoir is no mere celebrity tell-all, but a novelist and martial master’s path to self-discovery.

The Monk of Park Avenue offers you:

  • Paths for personal and spiritual growth
  • Anecdotal stories of self-discovery and insights into how to live
  • An eloquent, candid exploration of spiritual transformation

Major Health Crisis Among Black Women Generated from Systemic Racism  

“Marita Golden’s The Strong Black Woman busts the myth that Black women are fierce and resilient by letting the reader in under the mask that proclaims ‘Black don’t crack.’” ―Karen Arrington, coach, mentor, philanthropist, and author of NAACP Image Award-winning Your Next Level Life

Sarton Women’s Book Award
#1 New Release in Reference

Meet Black women who have learned through hard lessons the importance of self-care and how to break through the cultural and family resistance to seeking therapy and professional mental health care.

The Strong Black Woman Syndrome. For generations, in response to systemic racism, Black women and African American culture created the persona of the Strong Black Woman, a woman who, motivated by service and sacrifice, handles, manages, and overcomes any problem, any obstacle.  The syndrome calls on Black women to be the problem-solvers and chief caretakers for everyone in their lives―never buckling, never feeling vulnerable, and never bothering with their pain.

Hidden mental health crisis of anxiety and depression. To be a Black woman in America is to know you cannot protect your children or guarantee their safety, your value is consistently questioned, and even being “twice as good” is often not good enough. Consequently, Black women disproportionately experience anxiety and depression. Studies now conclusively connect racism and mental health―and physical health.

Take care of your emotional health. You deserve to be emotionally healthy for yourself and those you love. More and more young Black women are re-examining the Strong Black Woman syndrome and engaging in self-care practices that change their lives.

Hear stories of Black women who:

  • Asked for help
  • Built lives that offer healing
  • Learned to accept healing

If you have read The Unapologetic Guide to Black Mental HealthThe Racial Healing Handbook, or Black FatigueThe Strong Black Woman is your next read.

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 and a purpose driven life.

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 AnywayThe Purpose Driven Life, or The Open Mind, then I Will Not Die an Unlived Life is your next read!
