“I will not die an unlived life” is a driving purpose for Dawna Markova, the internationally known author, CEO of Professional Thinking Partners, Inc., and co-founder of the Worldwide Women’s Web. After being faced with a life-threatening illness, Markova asks herself, “How can I be closer to joy?” This question pulls her to a lone log cabin in the mountains of Utah where, through self-imposed isolation, she begins the quest of reclaiming true passion and purpose in her life. Mentors of the natural world, the trees, snow and sky, embrace her with treasures in trusting her life force. There she finds her own rhythm, re-evaluating old concepts and re-defining basics such as love and values. Through engaging storytelling, Dawna Markova invites us to look deeper at the longings of our soul. (hosted by Michael Toms)
