Mary Jean Teachman thought she had lost everything after losing her 37-year-old son, Forrest, to suicide in 1995.

WHEN DID YOU DIE?
When did you die? When someone told you that you weren’t good enough? When you buried who you really are for fear that others would disapprove? When you gave up your creative dreams to take a “practical” job? When you stayed in a relationship that does not “relate” to you? You may not have realized you were dying, but you have been dying a little more each day. According to Temple, many people do not know that there are many layers of being asleep and dying while we are living. We are so caught up in the motions of living, eating, working, and making and keeping appointments that we don’t recognize that we died to our potential a long time ago. We have become robotic! How do you know whether you’ve been dying a bit every day? One key way is to notice if you are feeling disconnected or drained rather than energized or impassioned about your life. Making a decision to stop dying will greatly increase your capacity to start living and to manifest your true purpose in life.
Temple is a leader in spiritual enrichment and a sought-after speaker. She is a Unity minister in St. Petersburg Fl., with a global following, the host of a radio show, and author of the book, When Did You Die? 8 Steps to Stop Dying Every Day and Start Waking Up.

YOUR SIXTH SENSE SHOULD BE YOUR FIRST SENSE
So often we wait for the climate and conditions in life to be perfect before we feel safe enough to step forward, claim our territory, and be our authentic selves. According to Sonia Choquette, what we don’t realize is that in order to create the ideal climate we are waiting for, we must be authentic first. And the only way to be so is to listen to and honor our intuition, our deepest knowing, our most powerful natural wisdom. Choosing to claim and follow our intuition is our strongest natural protector, our greatest psychic liberation, and the only way to be truly safe in life. Sonia is a spiritual teacher, six-sensory consultant, and the author of 19 books, including the New York Times best-seller The Answer is Simple. Hew newest book is entitled Walking Home – A Journey from Humbled to Healed. Sonia is the host of her own weekly radio show, Six Sensory Living.
ALL OR NOTHING
Before he was a rising culinary star. Before the James Beard nominations and the starred reviews. Before the Best New Chef titles and an Iron Chef win, Jesse Schenker worked in kitchens to fuel a ravenous habit. His obsession with drugs overtook his passion for cooking—until he hit rock bottom and realized: one would kill him and the other could save him. Growing up in wealthy suburban Florida, Jesse was introduced to the culinary world—and the world of hard drugs. Becoming a high-school dropout addicted to heroin and crack, he was alienated from his family and wanted by the cops. By 21, he had robbed, cheated, and lied to everyone in his life—and had overdosed, been shot at and nearly beaten to death. His eventual arrest motivated him to get clean.
Jesse learned to channel his obsessiveness and need to get ever “higher” into his career. But his growing success fueled his anxiety, leading to panic attacks and hypochondria. Jesse lays it all on the table for the first time, reflecting on his insatiable appetite for the extreme—which has led to his biggest triumphs and failures—and shares the shocking story of his turbulent life. Jesse is the author of the new book, All or Nothing, One Chef’s Appetite for the Extreme.
