Book Promo: Breath LOVE by Lauren Chelec Cafritz

This Fall, Breathe Like It’s Summer ––
Professional Breathwork Coach Releases New Book
To Promote Wellness And Enlightenment



Internationally known breathwork teacher, speaker, and first-time author Lauren Chelec Cafritz has released Breath LOVE, a highly inspirational and transformative self-help memoir published by Charlotte-based Warren Publishing. This engaging book brings breathwork to everyone in a fun and accessible way so they can “breathe like it’s summer,” relax, and hold on to that carefree feeling as fall begins. Part memoir, part inspiration, part instruction, Chelec Cafritz empowers people to see that anything is possible when they connect to their breath.

Using her personal journey and teaching experiences, Chelec Cafritz helps readers understand how to take control of their lives, master their emotions, and promote their physical well-being through the process of breathing. She takes readers on an informational and experiential journey toward emotional liberation, physical wellness, and mental well-being.

Chelec Cafritz was inspired to reach larger audiences after she witnessed the effect breathwork had in both her life and in the lives of her clients. As a past sufferer of chronic pain and anxiety, she brings a unique perspective to her breathwork facilitation throughout her inspirational 161-page book.

“I wrote Breath LOVE with a lot of love and joy,” said Chelec Cafritz. “I wanted to mainstream breathwork and share everything I know about it in a way that was easy and accessible. I want people to know that no matter what they are going through, they are never alone; your breath is your best friend. Breath LOVE is ultimately about empowerment and self-love.”

Breathwork is a dynamic body-mind-spirit practice using conscious connected breathing techniques for inner peace, enhanced well-being, and personal transformation.

“Breath introduced me to my emotional wisdom and mastery,” said Chelec Cafritz. “I gained my emotional maturity and the way I respond to the world through breath––in ways I didn’t even know possible. This is my opportunity to share this gift with the world.”

Lead Like Walt: Discover Walt Disney’s Magical Approach To Building Successful Organizations

“Pat Williams has done a remarkable job of telling a very inspirational story of Walt Disney and the attributes that made him so successful. I highly recommend his book to help motivate you to a future you did not know was possible.” – Don Iwerks, Former Disney Executive, an Oscar Winner and Co-founder of Iwerks Entertainment

“Walt was a paradox. I’ve interviewed hundreds of people who knew him. A few described him as a harsh and insensitive taskmaster. Some found him charming one day, then dour and distant the next. Most lived in awe of him. How could one man be remembered so differently by different people who knew him?” says Pat William, Lead Like Walt (Section: Lead with Kindness).

Whether you are building a small business from the ground up or managing a multi-national company, you can learn the 7 key traits for leadership success from one of the greatest business innovators and creative thinkers of the 20th century: Walt Disney. Whether you know him as the first to produce cartoons in Technicolor, the mastermind behind the theme park Disneyland, or the founder of the largest entertainment conglomerate, Walt’s story of creativity, perseverance in spite of obstacles, and achieving goals resonates and inspires as much today as it ever has.

Author of the new book Lead Like Walt: Discover Walt Disney’s Magical Approach to Building Successful Organizations, Pat Williams began studying the life and leadership example of Walt Disney as he struggled to build an NBA franchise, the Orlando Magic. Since he was trying to accomplish a goal similar to so many of Walt’s—starting with nothing and building a dream from the ground up—he realized that Walt could teach him what he needed to know. And indeed he did.

Through Walt Disney’s leadership example, Pat found 7 key leadership traits that all great leaders must possess: Vision, Communication, People Skills, Character, Competence, Boldness, and A Serving Heart. Through never-before-heard Walt stories and pragmatic principles for exceeding business goals, you’ll learn how to build those skills and implement them to be effective in any leadership arena. As you discover the life of this great leader, you’ll realize that no goal is too great and no dream too daring for anyone who leads like Walt.

Bonjour, Breast Cancer – I’m Still Smiling!:
Wit, Wisdom, and Optimism for
Beating the Breast Cancer Blues

by Princess Diane von Brainisfried

Honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month By Finding Your Happiness Mojo In Spite Of Life’s Challenges

There is nothing more terrifying to hear than those three words, “You have cancer.” The world seems to turn upside down and nothing makes sense anymore. Award-winning author and breast cancer survivor, Princess Diane von Brainisfried (aka Diane Young Uniman), knows how it feels – she’s been there. Her new book, Bonjour, Breast Cancer – I’m Still Smiling! is packed with practical advice, humor and encouragement – the perfect mix to find positivity in the face of challenges posed by breast cancer and its accompanying treatment.

Written with a deliciously humorous tone, this essential guide to beating the breast cancer blues combines von Brainisfried’s own experiences and insights with research-based positive psychology strategies. Along the way, she shares wisdom from Socrates, Cherokee legends and her own Jewish great-grandmother to help those facing cancer diagnoses reclaim their happiness mojo and move from fear and despair to positivity and optimism.

From her own breast cancer diagnosis to chemo, baldness, double mastectomy, radiation —and 3-D nipple tattoos — she holds nothing back, imparting refreshing honesty (that’s always dappled with humor) to encourage and empower others on their journeys. Bonjour, Breast Cancer — I’m Still Smiling! is the closest thing to having a hand to hold onto throughout any difficult experience.

Some of the secrets inside:
•    Create blessings out of bad news without needing a magic wand
•    Comfort family and others
•    Tame fear when it is acting like a monkey and going bananas
•    Find the pluses when they pop up

Regaining equilibrium and reclaiming happiness following a cancer diagnosis is not easy. It’s OK to wallow — for a moment. Bonjour, Breast Cancer — I’m Still Smiling! shares a king’s ransom of practical advice and wisdom to find positivity in the face of the challenges posed by breast cancer and everything that goes with it.

When author Princess Diane is not smashing champagne bottles over the bows of ships or blogging her brains out at her palace desk, she’s a motivational speaker and certified positive psychology life coach, the optimist expert for the Women’s Health Institute of Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, and was a facilitator at Miami’s World Happiness Summit. When the Princess is not wearing her tiara, she is known as Diane Young Uniman, a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of The University of Pennsylvania and criminal justice appeals attorney turned writer of screenplays and musicals. Her work has been featured at Lincoln Center’s Broadway’s Future series and was accepted into Fringe/NYC. She has won over 50 awards for her screenplays and musicals and an ASCAP award for writing. Diane is also an opera singer and an advanced student at the New York School of Practical Philosophy. Bonjour, Breast Cancer — I’m Still Smiling! is her first book.

Catskills Cabaret at Neve Shalom featuring Kenny Ellis

Kenny Ellis is perfectly at home performing at a Catskill’s resort, The Copacabana, The Improv, the Miami Beach club scene, a kibbutz, army camp or the national radio in Israel – or the stage in any synagogue here or abroad. With early career years spent working his way through the New York performing arts scene, from Broadway to upstate, Ellis counts singing with Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach z”l at the Roosevelt Hotel as one of the highlights of his career.

Ellis is most well known for his 2005 Hanukkah Swings CD, still a consistent top seller in its category on Amazon Music. “Part of my life’s work has been discovering new entertaining avenues to show what Jewish life can be. [The CD] is a celebration of Jewish life and music, not just for people of our culture and faith, but for everybody,” Ellis says of this work.

When he’s not performing or teaching, the Philadelphia-born Ellis serves as the cantor at Temple Beth Ami in Santa Clarita, CA (Los Angeles area), where he has worked since 2010. Prior to Temple Beth Ami, he was the cantor at Temple Beth Haverim in Agoura Hills, CA for 15 years.

Book Promo: Prairie Fever by Tessa Layne

Playing doctor has never been so sexy.

Confirmed bachelor Gunnar Hansen, has successfully resisted the matchmaking efforts of Dottie Grace and her posse of granny wannabe’s. There’s no room in his life for love, or for starting a family of his own. Not when his hands are full running Hansen Stables and heading up the board of Prairie’s new medical clinic. But everything turns upside down when the socialite who ditched him at the altar years ago turns out to be Prairie’s new doctor.

Four years ago, fresh out of medical school, Suzannah Winslow took a gamble on a sweet-talking cowboy who left her high and dry… and pregnant. With her residency behind her, and an offer to become Prairie’s first and only physician, she can finally provide her daughter with stability she’s longed for. She has no interest in taking a second chance on a silver-tongued cowboy full of empty promises. Even if his smile still melts her panties.

But Gunnar has other ideas, and when he mounts a full-scale campaign to win back the woman he lost, will little Lula Beth become his unlikely ally or the wedge that drives them apart for good?

What Del’s wife wants for her birthday

Please help this plea to go viral, thank you.

a kidney for Del Du-Bois

Today, September 5, is Bobi’s birthday.

Happy Birthday!

This is her biggest wish for her birthday…

Today is my birthday. I have received many warm well wishes from friends and family. I am very grateful for all of the wonderful expressions for continued health, happiness and much joy. However, the gift I truly desire is a viable kidney for Del, my partner, my husband, father of our children, and love of my life.

Please help save Del’s life. He desperately needs a kidney and has been on the kidney transplant list for over 4 and a half years. The waiting lists for transplants are excessively long and hardly enough to meet the needs. I am asking for each one of you to please spread the word to family, friends, co-workers and anyone else who will listen that we need someone to donate a kidney for my husband, Del. If…
