A New Paradigm of Time: Changing Time Anxiety to Time Artistry by guest blogger Marney K. Makridakis
By Samy AbulEla

n the 10 years since I launched my website,, I can honestly say I’ve never been as excited about an event as I am about the series that’s happening next week: The Creating Time Mega Event, which celebrates the release of my upcoming book from New World Library, Creating Time: Using Creativity to Reinvent the Clock and Reclaim Your Life. It runs April 2–20 and will include live webinars, daily email inspiration, dynamic time-shifting games and challenges, a lively interactive community of fellow time-travelers, and so much more.

The Sexy Vegan Cookbook & Photo Contest by New World Library Wholesale Accounts Manager Ami Parkerson
By Samy AbulEla

I am a bit of a recipe hound. I have stacks of cookbooks that I love to pore over on slow weekend mornings. As a fairly lazy vegetarian, I usually start out my Google recipe searches with “easiest best ever vegetarian…”

Last year, while poking around online in search of something easy, creamy, and preferably carb-heavy, I stumbled upon a YouTube video of “the Sexy Vegan” preparing “Creamy” Asparagus Pasta. This wasn’t your standard cooking video.

Living Fully: A Conversation between Marc Allen and Shyalpa Tenzin Rinpoche
By Samy AbulEla

I recently had the pleasure of hanging out with Shyalpa Tenzin Rinpoche, the author of Living Fully: Finding Joy in Every Breath.

I’ve edited his words slightly or you can watch the video and hear him for yourself. His enthusiasm is wonderful and inspiring — and shows that there’s hope for all of us!
