FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Peace Activist French/American Disobeys Israeli Court Order: Went Underground In Palestine

Frank Romano, Ph.D, disobeyed a court order to leave Israel and Palestine on September 25, 2018. Romano, preferring to continue his work in Palestine, disobeyed the court order and went underground to avoid arrest.

Romano then worked with a team of lawyers in Ramallah, West Bank, preparing a case against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Secretary of Defense Avigdor Lieberman and others, before the International Criminal Court for War Crimes, Crimes Against Humanity and other serious international offenses.

In 2018, Frank Romano and other activists stood in front of an Israeli bulldozer preparing for the destruction of a Bedouin village ─ Al Khan al Ahmar in the Jericho Valley, West Bank. He was promptly arrested and imprisoned in Jerusalem. He was thrown into a cell with four hardened Israeli criminals who immediately attacked him, striking and stabbing him with a sharp object. Bloodied and injured, he broke away from the onslaught and pounded on the door. After the guards came and saw the dripping blood, they pulled him from the cell and locked him in solitary confinement.

The following day, Romano was to stand trial in Jerusalem. The police, instead of taking him to court for the trial, drove him to the airport after an Israeli Military Court convicted him of a felony and ordered his deportation. When the judge became aware of the police duplicity, she ordered them to return Romano to Jerusalem to stand trial. After the trial, he was acquitted and released.

For a decade, through interfaith grassroots efforts, Frank Romano has brought Jews, Muslims and Christians together from all corners of the world in support of peace. However, this was a voyage into a tense war zone, the first time defending Palestinian Bedouins, and he has a story to tell.

In Love and Terror in the Middle East (5th Edition), Romano recounts this last voyage to the troubled Holy Land. It covers his arrest, his experiences in jail, his living under-ground in Palestine, and then his second arrest and subsequent deportation. He presently lives and works teaching French in the Sabra and Chatilla Palestinian and Syrian refugee camps in Beirut, Lebanon.

Tenured Professor: University of Paris

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

From Their Darkest Hours To Their Brightest Moments, Survivors Describe Their Transformation From Despair to Happiness

Real people. Real pain. Real hopelessness. Real healing. Some have battled a life-threatening illness, others have survived an abusive relationship, lost their job, or overcome an addiction. Others have plummeted to the bottom after a painful divorce, only to transform themselves into far happier people. And some were shackled to despair and hopelessness after the death of a child and, yes, they struggled and broke free. These are people who have battled the unthinkable and transformed their lives in Chaos to Clarity: Sacred Stories of Transformational Change by Rev. Patricia Cagganello and Kathleen O’Keefe-Kanavos. Readers will witness firsthand the challenges that these men and women faced head-on, and how they emerged stronger and happier.

In Chaos to Clarity, Cagganello and Kanavos share their expertise on the spirituality and psychology of change and explain why change is not only inevitable, but it is good for you.

“Just as the flapping of a butterfly’s wing can change weather patterns around the world, a small inspiration from one person can cause positive changes for another,” says Kanavos, who believes change is a part of the natural order of life.

“Welcome to true-life stories that transform chaos into clarity and connect you to the heart of humanity,” Cagganello adds. “Discover your hope for the future and a blueprint for your life in these life-changing pages.”

Rev. Cagganello is CEO and Founder of Sacred Stories Media, Sacred Stories Publishing, an award-winning book publishing and marketing company, and Sacred U ─ an online course division. An ordained interfaith, interspiritual minister and sacred storyteller, Cagganello is a believer in “raising the vibration of the planet” to one of respect and honor for the sacred nature of ourselves and all living things. Before she was ordained, Cagganello served six years as a sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps as well as many years in the corporate and educational worlds. She is the author of two previous books, God is in the Little Things: Messages from the Animals and God is in the Little Things: Messages from the Golden Angels, and co-author of the poetry book Scanning For Signal.

O’Keefe-Kanavos is accredited in psychopathology and special education. She taught psychology at University of South Florida’s Fort Myers branch and was an instructor of the severely emotionally handicapped for 10 years, two years as special education department head. Later, she used a combination of dreams and conventional medicine to beat back cancer—three times. She was actually a research subject in the Breast Cancer Dream Research Program at Duke University. In Dreams That Can Save Your Life, O’Keefe-Kanavos and co-author Dr. Larry Burk compiled true accounts of people whose dreams were later validated as well as the results of research studies that support the precognitive power of dreams.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Three-Time Breast Cancer Survivor Relates How Dreams Saved Her Life

Kathleen O’Keefe-Kanavos kept waking from dreams of monks who said she had cancer, but doctors could find nothing. In the end, her dreams were validated—she had breast cancer. Dr. Larry Burk followed his nagging suspicions that dreams could be important bellwethers of cancer and other serious diseases and conducted research that supports that premise. Now, O’Keefe-Kanavos and Burk have teamed up to produce Dreams That Can Save Your Life: Early Warning Signs of Cancer and Other Diseases.

Kathleen O’Keefe-Kanavos, the three-time Breast Cancer survivor employed a combination of dreams and conventional medicine to heal her body to beat back cancer—all three times. She was one of Dr. Burk’s Breast Cancer Dream Research Program research subjects at Duke. The resulting conclusions were published in various medical journals. O’Keefe-Kanavos has made appearances on TV’s Dr. OZ (https://kathleenokeefekanavos.com/dr-oz-show-appearance) and local television and radio shows.

In Dreams That Can Save Your Life, O’Keefe-Kanavos and Burk have collected not only the true accounts of people whose dreams were later validated by pathology but also the results of research studies that support the precognitive power of dreams. They also discuss how people who want to tap into the power of their dreams can learn to remember their dreams, learn their dream-language and keep a dream journal.

“We all have the power through dreams to transform our health, our business and our relationships for a better life,” says O’Keefe-Kanavos.

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.

CAREGIVING
Hope And Health For Caregiving Families

After a life-threatening accident stopped her completely in her tracks a few years ago, author Sharon Wegscheider-Cruse and her family came to truly understand that we are all one event from a lifestyle change.

Former First Lady Rosalyn Carter clearly illustrated the importance of this when she said: “There are only four kinds of people in this world: those who have been caregivers; those who currently are caregivers; those who will be caregivers; and those who will need caregivers.” Hence, the new book by Cruse with Patrick Egan has arrived, Caregiving: Hope and Health for Caregiving Families (ISBN: 9780757321931 – May 2019 — $14.95). While some people choose to take care of loved ones after they can no longer take care of themselves, many others must do so for a myriad of other reasons, often financial. It can be a crisis situation, such as an accident, or the long-term effects of aging. In any case, the days are often long and draining—both for the family care-giver and the paid professional—and the choices to be made are often confusing, difficult, and daunting.

Filled with practical, easily implementable advice, this illuminating book helps readers sort through the puzzle that forms the caregiving world. Topics include: identifying the roles of caregivers; dealing with burnout; finding ways to compartmentalize and separate without guilt; using technology to make life easier; building bridges through teamwork; downsizing; and navigating end-of-life issues. The first book to provide stories from the perspective of both caregiver and caree, it enables caregivers to better understand their fears and feelings. The result is a positive, unified approach to care.

About the Authors:

Sharon Wegscheider-Cruse is the founding Chairperson of the National Association of Children of Alcoholics, and founder of Onsite Workshops. She has written 19 books translated into 13 languages, and broke ground and fostered a movement with her works, Another Chance: Hope and Health for the Alcoholic Family and Learning to Love Yourself. Sharon has traveled the world and developed programs in the United States, Europe, Australia, and Canada, and has appeared on The Phil Donahue Show, The Oprah Winfrey Show and The Larry King Show, as well as in multiple media events.

Patrick Egan is a caregiving “gentrepreneur” and the caregiver for his parents who live in a senior community nearby. He is the founder of NurturingNet, a company that helps others use technology in a way that enhances and adds fun to the caregiver experience. A former VP of Human Resources for the Global HealthCare Exchange that was created by industry-leading health care firms including Medtronic, GE, Johnson and Johnson, Abbott and Baxter International. He holds a BA in Communications from the University of Colorado and an MBA in Management from the College of St. Thomas.
