FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Journal Empowers Caregivers To Reflect On Their Own Needs

Rosalyn Carter said it best: “There are only four kinds of people in the world — those who have been caregivers, those who are currently caregivers,
those who will be caregivers, and those who will need caregivers.” Yes, It Really Is All About Me is an enlightening book from Darleen Miller that seeks to empower selfless caregivers to create their own personal to-do list that nurtures the mind, body and spirit.

“Whether we are parents, grandparents, teachers or medical professionals, we all belong to a community of caregivers, and we often neglect our own needs,” Miller explains. “As we explore your personal Journey of a Lifetime, this inspirational journal will help define and support your relationship with self.”

Yes, It Really Is All About Me features a journal format that guides readers through a step-by-step journey of self-realization and self-nurturing, beginning with the question, ‘Who am I?’ The book is divided into four categories: Physical, Intellectual, Emotional and Spiritual, with written exercises, insights from the author and positive statements of empowerment.

Designed for the caregiver who loves others and wants to serve their world, Yes! It Really Is All About Me aims to impact the lives of caregivers by raising their conscious awareness of their own needs and leading them down a nurturing path where they feel loved and appreciated in their service.

At an early age, author Darleen Miller began her own personal journey as a lifelong teacher and caregiver to her parents, grandparents and her three children. During her 47-year marriage, Miller supported her husband’s military career and became his primary caregiver as he battled cancer for the last 12 years of his life. He passed away at their home with hospice care in July 2010. This experiential workbook is a reflection of Miller’s holistic self-exploration in caregiving experiences. Her passion for teaching, writing and healing unite as tools to help fellow caregivers embrace a new conscious awareness of life. Miller offers numerous classes that focus on mind, body and spiritual development with self-empowerment.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Revolutionary Method Can Break Endless Cycle Of Emotional Overeating

The solution to overeating and belly fat is shockingly simple. The root cause of overeating and weight gain is in the emotional brain. Our traditional approaches treat the thinking brain, that is, we are treating the wrong brain. As Laurel Mellin, Ph.D., explains in her breakthrough book, The Stress Eating Solution: A Proven, Neuroscience Method for Ending Overeating, we need emotional tools to solve problems rooted in the emotional brain.
During more than 30 years of research, Dr. Mellin crafted a way to take charge of the emotional brain. In her method, cravings and urges to overeat can be good for you. They activate the emotional wire that triggers overeating, and only when activated, can we rewire it. In her method, when cravings occur, instantly using the tools both shuts off the craving and begins to rewire the circuit that triggers it.

In an amazing about-face, all based on cutting edge neuroscience, Dr. Mellin delivers a program to “go to the emotional gym” daily to practice shutting off cravings, celebrating each small but important victory in clearing out the stress wires in the emotional brain that cause us to overeat.

The Stress Eating Solution walks readers through 30 days of effective strategies to transform their food, mood, love, and body circuits using Dr. Mellin’s proven method of Emotional Brain Training (EBT). Readers can experience immediate benefits, and using this method over time will promote lasting results. Dr. Mellin’s program is the only weight method other than surgery that has been shown in peer-reviewed research to produce lasting weight loss. For the first time, her methods are available to the public through this new book.

Readers will gain valuable benefits to ultimately help them:

1) Answer that nagging question, “Why do I overeat?” Overeating is caused by chemical surges unleashed by stress wiring. Yes, we are chemically driven to overeat.
2) Figure out why we can’t stop. We can’t stop because the wire in our brain tells us that we get our love, safety, comfort or pleasure from overeating.
3) Shut off cravings in real-time, so a new sense of peace, confidence and power replace the self-judgment and shame of repeatedly losing the war against carb cravings.
4) Use the tools repeatedly to transform the drive to get love/safety/comfort/pleasure from overeating into the drive to eat healthy, be vibrant and have joy in our lives.

We have thousands of diets, and people know what they should do; it’s just that they can’t do it. That powerlessness and the resulting self-blame are what harm us. Knowing what to do or being mindfully aware works in low-stress times, but research has shown these approaches are ineffective at the high stress levels of modern life. We need emotional tools, and The Stress Eating Solution offers these tools and more, to help readers end their cravings for unhealthy foods, regain control of their lives and move forward with improved overall well-being.

Dr. Mellin is also introducing a new mobile app, Brain Based Health by EBT, which can help readers use the tools in real time to stop craving and binge eating at the time the urge arises.

Laurel Mellin, Ph.D., is a New York Times bestselling author; health psychologist; Associate Clinical Professor, School of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco; and founder of the Emotional Brain Training (EBT) method. She is also the leader of the Brain Based Health Movement, mobilizing individuals, universities and corporations to access the natural pathway in the brain to rapidly get from stress to joy. She has been a faculty member at UCSF for more than 30 years, and her work has been featured on KQED public television, Oprah, Today, Good Morning America, and in U.S. News & World Report, Time, The Conversation, Psychology Today and many more. Her method was named one of the “Top Ten Medical Advances of the Year” by Health magazine. Dr. Mellin’s credentials are from the University of California, Berkeley, San Francisco State University, and North Central University. She is a Ph.D. health psychologist, a Master’s level nutritionist, and has received government and health organization awards for her research and public education. Her two latest books are The Stress Eating Solution and The Stress Overload Solution, which give the public an opportunity to experience the 30-day, step-by-step way to learn how to become emotional superstars, and move through stress to joy, often in as little as four minutes, to stop cravings and stop the “stress buzzer” from being stuck on. Dr. Mellin is an internationally-recognized expert on obesity and stress.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Compassion Strategies In The Workplace Can Inspire New Paradigm For Success

The fifth industrial revolution is upon us — a time when artificial intelligence will take on a growing number of tasks formerly handled by humans. To make the most of what is traditionally a period of industrial advancement and technical innovation, corporate trainer and author Immanual Joseph proposes a reawakening of a uniquely human trait: compassion.

The Fifth Revolution: Reinventing Workplace Happiness, Health, and Engagement Through Compassion is an invitation to rediscover the power of human consciousness both in and out of the workplace.

“Compassion is a behavior that is always desired but often missing in workplaces, including among leadership,” Joseph says. “This book delivers the skills of workplace compassion in a practical, hands-on way that has not been done before.”

Readers will gain a deep understanding of what compassion means and will explore compassion skills to incorporate into their lives as individuals, influencers and leaders. Along the way, Joseph introduces his nine pillars of workplace compassion, which include people-first thinking, abundance mindset, embracing others and big-picture thinking. His aim is to teach people how to use compassion frameworks to shift work cultures — even governments — and create strategies for lifelong changes.

“We deserve an internal and cultural framework in workplaces that allows us to flourish both person-ally and professionally,” Joseph writes in his book. “Workplaces that bring out the best in people thrive. The fifth revolution starts with creating these workplaces.”

In an age of artificial intelligence, as our jobs and professional identities are gradually being redefined by technology, compassion can be the standout skill that defines our uniqueness and propels our professional success. The Fifth Revolution is all about practical compassion — part information, part stories, part workbook and all transformation.

Author Immanual Joseph, PhD, CPC, is a former cancer drug discovery scientist who chose to become an evangelist of human compassion in workplaces following a period of taking care of people in end-of-life situations. Inspired by personal compassion experiences post-Hurricane Katrina, Immanual created Compassion Leaders, a company that helps organizations solve human and business challenges through compassion training. His training curriculum, “The 9 Pillars of Workplace Compassion,” has been reviewed and praised by experts from Stanford and used by global organizations.

Joseph obtained his PhD in Biochemistry from the Tulane School of Medicine, New Orleans, and is a certified professional coach from the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching. He has several high impact scientific publications and a book chapter to his credit. Joseph has also authored five fiction and one non-fiction book in two languages (English and Tamil). He is the co-founder of MetaMindfulness Multiversity (www.metamindfulness.org) — a platform that brings the teachings of some of the wisest teachers of our generation to corporate audiences.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Former NFL Star Shares Empowering Story In SuperVan Tackles Cancer

Van Johnson was a typical 6-year-old boy who loved to play football and often dreamed that he could fly. When a routine physical revealed an anomaly, Van’s dreams of flying were sidelined and replaced by the hope that one day he would be well enough again to return to the football field.

A cancer diagnosis at age 6 is unthinkable, but in reality, nearly 16,000 children under 19 receive a cancer diagnosis each year in the United States.

SuperVan Tackles Cancer is the heartwarming story of young Van’s cancer journey. Written by cancer survivor and former NFL star Dominic “Billy” Austin, SuperVan is the first install-ment of Austin’s Tackle Cancer series, which shares inspirational stories of kids just like Van Johnson. Austin believes that within every child lies a superhero with the power to beat can-cer, and through his Tackle Cancer series, he gives kids a powerful voice to share their sto-ries and let other children fighting cancer know that they are not alone.

SuperVan Tackles Cancer is an empowering tale of courage, hope and strength; of digging deep inside to harness your superpowers; and of using those powers to wage the battle of a lifetime. It is a story that will inspire other children to seek their inner superheroes to over-come life’s obstacles.

Author Dominic “Billy” Austin, a former cornerback for the Indianapolis Colts, graduated from Kempner High School in Sugarland, Texas, where he was an academic and athletic stand-out. At the University of New Mexico, he was named all-conference defensive back his sophomore, junior and senior years.

Following his diagnosis of stage III non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma just before his 39th birthday, Austin launched Tackles4Cancer, a nonprofit organization with two primary missions: to as-sist young cancer patients with transportation to and from their lifesaving treatments and to infuse young readers with faith that they have what it takes to beat cancer. Proceeds from SuperVan benefit Tackles4Cancer.

Now cancer-free, Austin has hosted over 20 events with celebrities and has been featured as an inspirational figure for Beyoncé’s BeyGOOD Foundation (https://www.beyonce.com/inspiration-dominic-austin/). Austin currently resides in Houston. Visit him on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/supervantacklescancer/ and on Instagram at @tackles4cancer.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Words For All: Insightful Writings That Can Help Anyone Learn What Life Is Really All About

Dr. Pieter Noomen’s personal spiritual path widened, unexpectedly and quite sensationally, about 25 years ago at a time when he was unhappy with the way his life was going, especially certain events in his personal life, and he was getting older. At that time he became familiar with the insights of Dr. Peter D. Francuch, who communicated with what he called ‘the Positive State.’ Noomen read about, and met, others who experienced a direct, personal connection with the ‘One Who Is Life’ — and that is when his own life changed significantly. He shares his experiences and offers access to the Source of that information in his writings on the website at www.wordsforall.org.

Noomen posits that directly or indirectly, life stems from one common source and that to connect with that source is the highest level of existence we can achieve on earth.

Over the course of many years, Noomen experienced transformative “visits” on the spirit level — and he freely shares the universal and eternal facts of life that were com-municated to him on his website, www.wordsforall.org.

As he explains on his website, “I can only say that the information came from a pres-ence on my innermost spiritual level I was in communication with for some time. The words seem the result of my spirit merging with the spirit of life It/Her/Himself.”

Visitors to Noomen’s website can read about the 12 components of life through his 12 booklets: Oneness, Love, Life, Fire, Space, Connectedness, Progression, Effect, Free-dom, Joy, Differentness and Harmony. Throughout his writings, Noomen avoids using the name of any deity, such as God, and instead uses what he refers to as The Seven Names, each of which relates on a human level to the situation at hand: One Holy, Love, Truth, Proper, Healing, Manifestation and Energy.

A series of lessons on the site shares 147 thought-provoking questions and the illumi-nating answers that came to him during his extensive communications with the All Spir-it.

“In death,” Noomen writes, “everyone will, without exception and in a purely personal way, find out whether or not there is another dimension of existence.” The reflections shared on Noomen’s website invite readers to not wait until the end of their earthly lives for the answer.

Born in the Netherlands, Pieter Noomen completed doctoral studies in theology and pastoral psychology at the Free University of Amsterdam and was senior minister of three protestant churches. Later he worked as a psychotherapist and as a staff mem-ber of a Los Angeles metropolitan church. He was involved in mental health issues like suicide prevention and hospice. His personal spiritual path widened quite sensationally 25 years ago when he was drawn to the insights of Dr. Peter D. Francuch (1934-2001), who wrote about his communications with what he called the Positive State. This led to Noomen’s interest in experiencing a direct, personal connection with the One Who is Life. Noomen is retired and resides in Hollywood, California.
