First We Make the Beast Beautiful Book Excerpt:

The New York Times bestselling author of I Quit Sugar transforms cultural perceptions of the mental health issue of our age—anxiety—viewing this widespread condition not as a burdensome affliction but as a powerful spiritual teacher that can deepen our lives. While reading psychiatrist Kay Redfield Jamison’s groundbreaking account of bipolar disorder An Unquiet Mind, Sarah Wilson discovered an ancient Chinese proverb that would change her life: To conquer a beast, you must first make it beautiful. Wilson, a bestselling author, journalist, and entrepreneur, had spent years struggling with her own beast: chronic anxiety. And the words of this proverb would become the key to understanding her condition. First, We Make the Beast Beautiful charts Wilson’s epic journey to make peace with her lifetime companion, and to learn to see it as a guide, rather than as an enemy. With intensive focus and investigatory skills, Wilson examines the triggers and treatments, the fashions and fads. She reads widely and interviews fellow sufferers, mental health experts, philosophers, and even the Dalai Lama, processing all she learns through the prism of her own experiences. Pulling at the thread of accepted definitions of anxiety, she unravels the notion that it is a difficult, dangerous disease that must be medicated into submission, and re-frames it as a divine journey—a state of yearning that will lead us closer to what really matters. Practical and poetic, wise and funny, First, We Make the Beast Beautiful is a small book with a big heart. It will encourage the myriad souls who dance with this condition to embrace it as a part of who they are, and to explore the possibilities it offers for a richer, fuller life.

This One Wild and Precious Life Book Excerpt:

As seen in USA Today's hottest releases and The Washington Post's 10 New Books Spotlight “Sarah Wilson is a force of nature – quite literally. She has taken her pain and grief about our sick and troubled world and alchemized it into action, advocacy, adventure, poetry, and true love.” — ELIZABETH GILBERT Wake up and reclaim your one wild and precious life. New York Times bestselling author Sarah Wilson shows you how in this radical spiritual guidebook, the book we need NOW. Many of us are living with the sense that things are not right with the world and are in a state of spiritual PTSD. We have retreated, morally and psychologically; we are experiencing a crisis of disconnection—from one another, from our true values, from joy, and from life as we feel we are meant to be living it. Sarah Wilson argues that this sense of despair and disconnection is ironically what unites us—that deep down, we are all feeling that same itch for a new way of living. Drawing on science, literature, philosophy and the wisdom of some of the world’s leading experts, and her personal journey, Wilson offers a hopeful path forward to the life we love. En route, she shows us how to wake up and reconnect with life using “wild practices” that include: · Hike. Embrace the “walking cure” as great minds throughout history have. · Go to your edge. Do what scares you and embrace discomfort daily. · #Buylesslivemore. Break the cycle of mindless consumption and get light with your life. · Become a soul nerd. Light up your intellect with the arts. · Get “full-fat spiritual”. Have an active practice and use it to change the world. · Practice wild activism. Through sustained, non-violent protest we can create our better world. The time has come to boldly, wildly imagine better. We are being called upon, individually and as a society, to forge a new path and to find a new way of living. Will you join the journey?

In The Anti-Anxiety Diet, sugar addiction expert Sarah Wilson explores how the anxiety fix doesn’t have to be medication. It could be putting in place a few simple, sensible and life-enhancing dietary and daily habit change-ups. This is a little book about what to eat if you want to feel well.

Queens of Print Book Excerpt:

For fifty years our most powerful popular culture influencers have been the high-powered editors of mass-market women’s magazines like The Australian Women’s Weekly, Woman’s Day, New Idea and the now defunct Dolly, Cleo and Cosmopolitan. It is difficult to overstate the influence that these women have had in shaping popular ideas and attitudes, feminism, and femininity in Australia via the pages of their magazines. In these interviews, they describe their lives and careers in a medium that is part of our publishing heritage. Queens of Print is a tribute to the most influential and iconic women in Australian women’s magazines. It is a snapshot of a rapidly changing industry where print is supposedly dead, and media have been disrupted. This book looks back, but also forward to consider what a magazine might be and what a magazine editor might do in future decades.

Awakening From Anxiety Book Excerpt:

A Spiritual Guide to Anxiety Relief Do you find your usual approaches to anxiety (yoga, prayer, meditation) are not bringing the long-lasting, inner peace you truly desire? Awakening from Anxiety author and counselor, Connie Habash, has helped hundreds of spiritual people like you overcome fear and anxiety, regain happiness, and feel more calm within. Competent, spiritual people suffer from anxiety and depression too: Spiritual people often find that their own expectations of living a life dedicated to a higher power makes them more susceptible to high-functioning anxiety. Sometimes, traditional relaxation techniques either do not work, don’t last, or, in some cases, actually increase their anxiety. The missing keys to managing anxiety: Psychotherapist, yoga teacher, and interfaith minister Rev. Connie L. Habash shows us a way to transform our perceptions using mindful awareness, in order that we may live divinely inspired lives. In over 25 years as a counselor helping spiritual people overcome anxiety, Rev. Connie has taught that it takes more than chanting mantras, stretching, or relaxation techniques to calm anxiety. It requires a transformation in perception, moment-to-moment body awareness, and a conscious response to thoughts and emotions. Awakening from Anxiety provides valuable psycho-spiritual tools to deepen spiritual awakening and calm fears: • Learn what anxiety is and when it becomes a problem • Understand the 6 mistakes spiritual people make that increase anxiety • Discover the 7 keys to a more calm, confident, courageous life • Know how to break through the old patterns of stress, worry, and fear into a new perception of your true self If you enjoyed Stop Anxiety from Stopping You and First, We Make the Beast Beautiful, Awakening from Anxiety will take your healing and renewal from anxiety to the next level.

Speak Your Truth Book Excerpt:

THE INSPIRING SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER 'Fearne Cotton is a tireless seeker of the truth, and a wonderful communicator of sanity, hope, and (most refreshingly of all) reality. This is, simply put, a beautiful book.' Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love and Big Magic 'During a time where misinformation is spreading faster than ever and people are finding it hard to keep it real, Fearne shows us the power of living in our truth. She has a magical way of making us feel understood through her compelling storytelling, while showing us a path to a more authentic life.' Vex King, author of Good Vibes, Good Life 'This book is going to help a lot of people.' Philippa Perry, author of The Book You Wish Your Parents Had Read 'Loved it - without judgement, but with a cheeky wink of wisdom, Fearne gives you the tools that she's learned on her own journey.' Skin, Skunk Anansie 'We need truth talkers more than we ever have right now. Wild, bold, connected truth talkers. Fearne takes our hand and shows us how to be one by treading the wild, vulnerable path first.' Sarah Wilson, author of First, We Make the Beast Beautiful Fearne Cotton's voice is familiar to millions, whether that's through television, radio or on her hugely successful Happy Place podcast. Her voice is her career, her livelihood and the way she communicates with her audience and her loved ones. So, when Fearne's doctor told her she was at risk of needing a throat operation followed by two weeks of being unable to speak, she found herself facing a period of unexpected contemplation. As she considered what silence would mean, Fearne began to think about other times her voice had gone unheard - as a young woman, as 'just the talent', as the foil to louder, more dominant figures. She found herself wondering, at what point do we internalise this message, and start silencing ourselves? When do we swallow down our authentic words to become pleasers and compromisers at the cost of our own happiness or wellbeing? Speak Your Truth dives into all the ways we learn to stay quiet for the wrong reasons, and explores how to find your voice, assert yourself and speak out with confidence. Brave, vulnerable and deeply personal, Speak Your Truth shares Fearne's compelling story and helps you to shape your own.

Popular Memoir in Neoliberal Australia Book Excerpt:

The widespread popularity of memoir over the last three decades in Australia demonstrates the importance of life narrative to national identity. However, it also reveals the pervasiveness of various ideologies, including that of neoliberalism. Though memoir's success and popularity has been welcomed by readers, writers and publishers, memoir has also been the subject of critical assessments that accuse the genre of inciting narcissism. This thesis seeks to examine the function of popular memoir, specifically within the contemporary Australian market, to analyse how popular memoir is integrated within the politics, culture and society in which it circulates. -- This thesis traces the function of popular memoir during 2010-2017. This period is significant because its proximity to the Global Financial Crisis of 2008 provides a unique opportunity to investigate the relations between how popular memoir and neoliberal ideology respond to global crises. Although, this thesis tends to focus on neoliberal ideology as a cultural force, one that intervenes in the way people perceive 'normalcy' in response to the crisis through life narrative rather than a vehicle for markets, publishers or authors to respond to crisis. In practice, this thesis focuses on the relationship between memoir and neoliberal ideology as a force that polices, challenges and negotiates norms of being in the world. For example, as economist Peter Bloom argues, neoliberal ideology responded to the GFC by reinvesting its energies away from the now compromised 'market' and towards physical, psychological and spiritual wellness. Subsequently, popular memoirs during this period are overwhelming structured by redemption narratives, which focus on individual self-determination and overcoming trauma to achieve wealth, success and happiness. Significantly, the popular memoirs in my case studies are authored by influential and celebrity subjects. Controversial wellness warrior Belle Gibson's Instagram account @healing_belle and her cookbook The Whole Pantry (2014); founder of the I Quit Sugar wellness franchise Sarah Wilson's memoir First, We Make the Beast Beautiful (2017); Vietnamese-Australian comedian Anh Do's The Happiest Refugee (2010); lead singer of rock band Cold Chisel Jimmy Barnes' Working Class Boy (2016); and well-loved actress and comedian Magda Szubanski's Reckoning (2015). -- In these case studies, I demonstrate how the popular memoir market traverses the spheres of 'wellness' and 'celebrity' and discuss how these spheres continually (re)produce particular kinds of subjects that are authentic and powerful. Both wellness and celebrity are grounded in neoliberal logics of personal responsibility, the individual and self-regulation that suggest the individual is always at fault regardless of their economic, cultural or political circumstance. These memoirs tell redemption narratives, in which the authors overcome trauma through personal willpower and become successful, popular subjects. I read this as a neoliberal structure in which the individual takes responsibility for their own trauma or disadvantage and is rewarded for successfully overcoming it by their own willpower. While this structure appears flawed, popular memoir is also site where these authors circulate simultaneously as authentic survivors of trauma who are also commercialised subjects: their experiences must also sell memoir and may serve to promote a career or public identity. Crucially, these authors are often framed by their popularity as good role models with relatable life narratives that readers should want to emulate. Typical of neoliberal ideology, deeper social, political, cultural and economic contexts are obscured in favour of the individual. As such, this thesis argues that popular memoir circulates within a social imaginary where 'ordinary' people also defeat trauma and become wealthy, successful and happy.
