Do you wake up most mornings and go along with the day as usual, taking for granted that things will unfold the way they always have? Do you go through your days on autopilot, with no real thought that something life-changing could happen at any moment? By the time we reach our middle years, many of us have established well-worn patterns and habits that no longer serve us -- from what we eat to how we relate to others, to how we take care of our bodies or the environment, to how we express compassion for the whole web of living beings. Yet many times our bodies are sending us feelings and sensations meant to wake us up as if from sleepwalking, so that we can be more attuned and alive to our experiences, aligned with our values, and alert to the impulse to change before calamity happens. Through real-life examples and practical exercises for meditation and self-reflection, Toni Parker unpacks the five pillars for waking up: Body Sensation Awareness, Mind Kindness, Emotional Equanimity, Self-Compassion, and Waking Up to the World. She shows readers how to identify the signs and offers proven strategies for tuning in to the telltale whispers and sensations that alert us to when a wake-up call is building. This self-awareness and strength to stay in the present moment, see and accept a situation for what it is allows us to move forward differently-awake, centered, and prepared for the smallest experiences and the biggest changes in life. Wake Up Before Your Wake-Up Call expands on Parker's work as a therapist and speaker and will help readers live more meaningful and engaged lives through deeper love, joy, and connection.

-Will Tuttle, PhD, author of the international best-seller The World Peace Diet and recipient of the Courage of Conscience Award and the Empty Cages Prize

"Dr. Toni Parker makes abundantly clear-waking up is not a one-time event. Wake Up Before Your Wake-Up Call is beautifully written with profound explorations of a trustworthy path to awakening. A gem, full of courage, meaning, and hope. Her timely and inspiring book is a well-paced interweaving of pith wisdom, an extensive inventory of wise and effective practices, compelling full of real-life examples and stories, and some of the most practical, easy-to-implement exercises I've ever come across."

"I see what people mean when they say this is a must-read book. Do you really want to change your life for the better? We all would answer yes to that, but more than likely have always thought . . . but how? Dr. Parker extends her welcoming hand with genuine warmth and compassion and guides you through simple but profound steps to become your own 'inner activist' and 'best friend forever.' Blending ancient wisdom with modern-day principles, this book will help you make the good, strong, mindful decisions to create a meaningful, purposeful life."
