All is Well: The Art {and Science} of Personal Well-Being, Author Marilynn Preston

DREAMVISIONS 7 RADIO NETWORK’S APRIL BOOK OF THE MONTH

When journalist Marilynn Preston started her fitness column in Chicago in 1976, most people thought yoga and yogurt were interchangeable terms and the mind-body connection was another name for the neck. Everything changes. We live in a healthy lifestyle world now, and in Marilynn’s new book, All is Well: The Art {and Science} of Personal Well-Being she offers readers a timely and provocative guide to living your best life-healthy and happy, juicy and engaged, alert to corporate predators and health hucksters of every stripe. Each chapter closes with a reader-friendly action step, Going Deeper, because at its core, All is Well is about lifestyle change-how it happens, and what you need to know to make positive changes in your life. The chapters are short and savvy, lively and opinionated: * Link Mind and Body. * Explore Endlessly. * Tweet Mindfully. * Make Your Getaway. * Raise an Active Kid. * Practice De-Aging. * Grow Your Gray Matter. * Be Your Own Uncle Sam. * “It’s up to you, dear reader,” Marilynn writes in the introduction. “I can inform, inspire, educate, amuse, cajole, and otherwise cheer you on, but when push comes to shove-two excellent ways to burn 100 calories-you’re in charge of your own personal well-being. “And that’s the good news, because the more you take charge and stay vigilant, the greater success you’ll experience.” From eating clean to going green, from losing weight to adding muscle, from living longer to dying more easily, Marilynn links body and mind to culture and politics. She has great empathy for readers who have tried and failed to realize their personal vision of well-being, but she knows you can always begin, again, and be successful. Sometimes you have to redefine success. And that’s good, too. In her long-running weekly syndicated column “Energy Express,” and now in her third book, All is Well, Marilynn offers readers a welcoming evidence-based path to more joy, greater health, and sustained happiness-three essentials of a healthy lifestyle. Three more, she writes, are crispy fries, good wine, and love, love, love.

The authors explore medical studies and ongoing research on the diagnostic power of precognitive dreams, including Dr. Burk’s own research on dreams that come true and can be medically validated. They share detailed stories–all confirmed by pathology reports–from subjects in medical research projects whose dreams diagnosed illness and helped heal their lives, including Kathleen’s own story as a three-time breast cancer survivor whose dreams diagnosed her cancer even when it was missed by her doctors.

Alongside these stories of survival and faith, the authors also include an introduction to dream journaling and interpretation, allowing the reader to develop trust in their dreams as a spiritual source of healing and inner guidance.

Radical Transformational Leadership: Strategic Action for Change Agents, author Monica Sharma

Monica Sharma describes how we can source our inner capacities and wisdom to manifest change that embodies universal values such as dignity, compassion, fairness, and courage. Drawing on more than twenty years of work for the United Nations and elsewhere, she presents a radical new approach to transformational leadership, one that creates systems of change where everyone can engage—not just analysts and policy-makers. Demonstrating that we all can be architects of a new humanity, Monica demystifies policy-making, planning, and implementation so that everyone can play an informed and strategic part in eradicating the world’s most intractable problems. Using real-life examples from around the world, she shows how our innate characteristics of universal compassion, equity impulse, and human capability can create new patterns that effectively address major challenges such as gross inequality, unbridled hate, conflicts based on social identity, and the never-enough mindset of greed. Written in a straightforward, accessible style, Radical Transformational Leadership outlines a path-breaking paradigm shift that is already generating equitable and sustainable results across the globe.
