Dawn James

“Sometimes you need a heart stopping event to get you to realize you are not really living, you are merely existing.” ~ Dawn James After building a successful corporate career with 20+ years in executive leadership roles, Dawn James realized that her success came with a high price tag—a price she was no longer willing to pay. Her 70-hour work week was intensely stressful. After a heart stopping ‘ wake up call’ she walked away from her corporate career, she spent 18 months of intense soul searching, which jump-started her writing career. Having now authored seven books on conscious living, Dawn knew that she had to share her gift with the world at large. In 2010, she founded Publish and Promote, a medium by which she teaches new and aspiring authors to do what she did: share their story in excellence and connect to their best audience! Her spiritual journey guided her back to her first love – music. After studying several healing modalities, she now specializes in sound healing for individuals and small groups. Once she and her husband became empty nesters, they combined their talents and passions to create transformational retreats for people worldwide. A highly sought-after international speaker and mentor to many, today Dawn teaches others how to live in the flow of life with health, wealth and inner peace, through wellness, empowerment, business and writing retreats.
