With only one year of high-school left and a resolve to do something big before going out into the “real world,” 16-year-old Yara Kanaaneh (now 19 years-old) somewhat spontaneously decided to write and record her first album. With almost no formal music training but a knack for a poetry and a passion for music, she fervently began writing songs in her bedroom, unaware of the attention that her music would receive. Weeks after writing her songs, Yara met Bay Area rock-n-roll powerhouse Pamela Parker, who immediately took a liking to Yara’s music and offered to help arrange and produce her album. What Yara first thought would be an informal record became a two year recording and production project, partially funded by thousands of dollars in donations from fans, and creative support from a number of music industry professionals, including but not limited to Nathan Winter (all-star mixing engineer), Mike Wells (LA-based mastering guru), Jermaine Hamilton (Studio Circle Recordings founder), Tony Glaser (current bass player for Scott Pemberton), and Christopher Harold Wells, (former bass player for Grammy winner Lauryn Hill).
Yara is a Bay Area native with Palestinian blood. Her complex background, struggles, and experiences shine through in her artistry. Her lyrics are abstract and poetic yet strikingly honest and pertinent to listeners of any demographic. Her songs are a sort of urban electro-pop, ranging in composition and mood yet flowing together like raindrops on the pavement, distinct like the many facets of Yara’s personality yet coherent and grounded in a strong sense of self. It is thus only fitting that Yara’s music has rendered her “wise beyond her years.”

It started with me surviving (and saving) a company which was under administration. After the dust has settled I moved to an orthopaedic device company where I worked as a Quality Manager. That year, I made the most life changing decision to date. I went vegan.
I did after I finished an 8 week sugar-free challenge, which was also life changing (and bloody difficult).
Going vegan have been a catalyst of so many other changes in my life because: If I could stop eating meat, egg, and dairy (which I didn't thought I could), then what else is possible
So I scrapped my successful food blog and created a new blog from scratch promoting plantbased food and lifestyle (Passionately Keren) which now have recipes being featured on reputable sites such as SBS Food (SBS is national public television network in Australia), PETA Australia, etc. I also started a meetup and online community groups which now have over 400 members - Sydney Passion Bloggers.
Since then, I've started following my curiosity and dreams, including taking a year off work to travel, start a business and pursue my creative passion, which happened this year.
I went travelling to New Zealand, spent 3 months with my family in Indonesia - travelled around the Java Island, visited South Korea, and during this time I also launched a probiotic health drink (Water Kefir) in Jakarta which is now being managed by my sister and mother.
I then returned to Sydney in July 2016 and continued working on the blog and pursuing my creative passion, I dabbled a bit in videography and scored some paid gig making recipe videos, taught masterclass on blogging for new bloggers, and then I had a idea for another product in August. I launched my second product -Beyond Latte in Nov 2016 - healthy caffeine-free spicy latte blend which now in a number of cafes and health food stores across Sydney, and a few other cities in Australia.
“Having created a succession of UK firsts in the field of addiction recovery, Jacquie now heads Tom Harrison House, the UK’s first addiction recovery centre designed specifically for military veterans. Her work there ranges from striving to influence government policy and military culture around addiction and alcoholism, to more hands-on therapeutic work with the veterans and family members who access the programme.

Esther Nagle created a mask and comfort blanket out of alcohol for over 20 years. Wracked with self loathing and shame, she had virtually no other coping strategies in life besides drinking. When life got difficult, that coping strategy made things worse, and Esther surrendered into a breakdown.
That led her to Yoga teacher training, and her salvation. Through Yoga she learned tools that helped her reach a place where she no longer needed alcohol. This showed her that Yoga is far more powerful than she ever realised, and she realised she had a message to share.
Esther wrote a book, Bent Back into Shape: Beating Addiction Through Yoga, and has spoken internationally and in the UK to share her experiences and wisdom. She now runs workshops to help people in recovery and loves her life more than she ever thought possible.

The Willingness to Change: Twelve Steps to Transformation Through Your Handwriting
Someone to Watch Over Me is a lovely and accessible resource for parents, guardians and loving adults to share with children and youth. The book invites creativity and imagination, offers a disciplined approach to deepening one's spiritual life, and introduces the reader to a wonderful variety of "guardian protectors" to expand an understanding of the richness of the Spirit of Life. I think it will be a valuable tool for working with children and youth at home, building spirit and relationship. As a bonus,
I think adults will also want to work through this joyful book.
