In 1986, five neurologists told Sandi Gold that she had 6 months to a year to live. Years later, she was told she had to get a mastectomy, but she declined. Just five months later, using only a natural treatment she was cancer-free. Sandi’s book, “I Chose Love: How to Thrive After a Life-Threatening Illness Using Love to Guide You,” was published in January.

Dr. Bernie Siegel, a retired pediatric surgeon from

Yale University and best-selling author, wrote the foreword to Sandi’s book. It has already received ten 5-star reviews.

Guest Biography:
Wes Mack 

Multitalented Musician, Actor, Director, Producer, and Writer

Bio 👇

With over 15 Million Streams and 20 CCMA and BCCMA Award Nominations, Multitalented Musician, Actor, Director, Producer, and Writer, Wes Mack hits Fall 2023 with a Brand New Album, Single, TV Show, and Film.

Following up on his first two albums, "Edge of the Storm" and "SOUL," (which amassed four top 20 Billboard hits, millions of streams, and saw him tour with Shania Twain and Florida Georgia Line among others) Mack is now releasing his third studio album "Hummingbird" on October 20, 2023.

“Hummingbird” began production in early March 2020, just weeks before the pandemic began. “It certainly changed the album. It changed everything. But honestly, it allowed the album to come together in a really unique way that opened up a million new possibilities,” said Mack.

“Zoom sessions, Facetime calls, and sharing files across the world… suddenly it was possible to work with anyone anywhere. It oddly freed us up to collaborate without even thinking about where anyone was. Just about the most interesting thing, we could make something sound. That was the best part, and has become a huge part of how I make music now.”

The album’s work across multiple studios, provinces, and counties allowed it to feature the talents of some of the biggest names in the business, with writers including songwriters Gavin Slate (James Barker Band, Jade Eagleson), Travis Wood (Morgan Wallen, Jake Owen, Jordan Davis) Karen Kosowski (Mickey Guyton, Tim Hicks, Brett Kissel), Victoria Banks (Jessica Simpson, Mickey Guyton, Carly Pearce, Meghan Patrick), and many others.

The production was helmed by veteran producers Dan Swinimer (Madeline Merlo, Jojo Mason, Billy Currington) and Jordan Oorebeek (Spencer Crandall, Lydia Sutherland, Owen Reigling), as well as Mack himself, producing on Be Without You, House of Love, and Don’t Change.

With its unique origin, “Hummingbird” has already spawned big successes for Mack. The singles have amassed over 2 million streams, have had multiple top 5 hits on SiriusXM (including a Number 1 this year with “Lookin’ For You”), as well as generating multiple placements in film and TV projects.

While working on the EP, Mack also penned a series of co-writes with other artists including the top 10 hit “Fighting” from Tyler Joe Miller, the current top 30 “Breakup Song” from Lemon Cash, and the SiriusXM Number One hit “Bleed Country” from David Boyd Janes.

Playing into his other strengths, this fall, Mack joins the cast of the CTV/NBC hit series Transplant, premiering its fourth and final season on October 6th. Mack plays Ryan Ashcroft, a new resident doctor at York Memorial Hospital who immediately creates problems in the ER. Season 4 of TRANSPLANT finds Bashir “Bash” Hamed (Haq) on the precipice of finishing his residency at York Memorial and officially re-qualifying as a doctor.

Later in 2023, Mack is set to appear in a lead role in the heartwarming Christmas film, “Cape Holly Christmas” where art imitates life and Mack portrays a country musician named Luke, performing multiple original and classic Christmas songs, just in time for the holiday season. The film was shot in Mack’s home province of Alberta earlier in 2023.

Mack has shared the silver screen with a variety of stars from Liam Neeson in “Cold Pursuit,” to Kate Beckinsale in the Paramount Plus series “Guilty Party,” and recently played a lead role in the 2022 Netflix series “The Imperfects” which spent multiple weeks in the global top three shows. Other past credits include: “Power Rangers,” “DC’S Legends of Tomorrow”, “iZombie”, “Motive” “The 100”, “Supernatural”, “Continuum”, “Smallville”, “Heartland,” “The Vampire Diaries”.  “Magic Beyond Words: The JK Rowling Story”, “A Dog Named Christmas”, “Girl House”, and “The Phantoms”. 

Behind the camera Mack has also made a name for himself as a director and producer, earning him nominations for Music Video of the Year and Director of the Year at the CCMA, BCCMA, and Leo Awards, while creating compelling narrative pieces for artists like JUNO Award Winner Jess Moskaluke.

Guest Biography:

As far back as she can remember, Emily has been interested in human behavior and understanding people’s actions, hearts, and inner worlds. As a teen, her interest in the human experience grew; her boyfriend’s mother was diagnosed with lung cancer and, within three months, died. This personal experience with illness, loss, grief, and finally, death hugely impacted her and propelled her to embrace life and ask questions; Why are we here? What is our purpose? How can we make a more meaningful contribution in our lifetime? What happens when we die? Emily’s exploration started young and continues.

Emily focused her Master’s in Social Work education on transformative education. As a therapist she believes wholeheartedly that you can’t give away something you don’t have and comes from the perspective that if she hasn’t tried something, she wouldn’t ask or guide her clients to do so. She believes you must understand practices by having gone through them yourself.

In her free time, Emily enjoys learning new things. She spends most of her free time on creative outlets, specifically songwriting and anything related to art. She also loves the outdoors, traveling, art, music, fashion, her family, her friends, and her 2 cats.

Guest Occupation: Artist/Producer, Classical Violinist, Published Poet, and Creator of BreathChurch™,
Guest Biography:

Sage Rader is on a mission to help a million people live more pain-free lives this year.

In 2014 a severe workplace injury and failed neck fusion surgery confined Sage to bed for over a year. By the end of it, he was 320lbs and struggled to walk, think and communicate while on more pills than anyone watching could believe.

The pills stopped working, and physical discomfort became his primary teacher…to this day.

Sage is a recording artist/producer, O.G. ‘biohacking’ pioneer, classical violinist, published poet, and creator of BreathChurch™, an online community dedicated to self-healing as well as NeuroAcrobatics™, a revolutionary system of breath and brain training designed to create rapid dynamic shifts in mental models that show up in the real world in real-time.

Over the past two decades, Sage’s creative work has been featured in W Magazine, Global Wellness Institute’s 2021 Trend Report on Breathwork, The New York Times, on BBC, PBS, ITV (UK), Sirius/XM and in competition for the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival.

Since 2015 he has worked with leading scientists, inventors, breathwork masters, entertainment industry icons, and business CEOs to create a personally sustainable lifestyle of breath-based peak performance.

Peak performance means different things to different populations, so creating a system to democratize ‘elite’ methods for everyone in pain has been a driving passion.

Sage has sought out underserved communities and patient populations, from women’s shelters to stage four terminal cancer patients, and learned from every single breath. Observing and learning from his own extreme demands on his system, as well as being immersed in vastly divergent breathing populations, Sage has uncovered trends, behaviors and patterns locked away in the breath that are present in all of us. If you can de-code those patterns, you can learn, unlearn, re-learn, and rebuild them intentionally. He’s living PROOF.

Having served super-celebrities, Wall Street icons, and the world’s top law firm, Sage is now globally sought out to create bespoke NeuroAcrobatics™ breath/brain/body programs that support the extreme demands on the world’s most elite performers.

Sage and BreathChurch™ are live monthly on Insight Timer, the world’s largest meditation community.

Guest Occupation: Co- Founder of I Am Fine
Guest Biography:

Iamfine is the brainchild of Colin and Paul Hammond. Colin lives in the UK while his brother Paul lives on the west coast of America.  They designed Iamfine to help them both keep in touch with their mother Isobel who lives alone in Florida.

The brothers regularly speak to their mother and visit several times a year, but busy schedules mean they struggle to check on her every day. Although in her mid-90s, Isobel is healthy, plays golf twice a week, lives in her own home and loves life.  Like many elderly people living alone, she is fiercely independent and doesn’t want her sons to be worrying about her.

Iamfine was built to ensure they both have peace of mind that their mother is OK each day.  With many years of technology and software experience, they set out to build Iamfine as a robust, reliable and scalable service.  Living so far apart, they made sure the system could communicate with a wide circle of family and friends, meaning that if Isobel ever missed a check-in, her friends living locally could pop in to ensure everything was fine while keeping the brothers informed.

Iamfine hasn’t replaced the visits or regular calls, but has simply supplemented the communication and care for the person Colin and Paul care most about - their mum!

We have both been involved in software companies and large technology projects.  We understand how to build and maintain a robust, reliable and scalable service.  Paul helped design one of the first VOIP cloud platforms at VirtualPBX.com and Colin has led many large software projects for several major UK companies and founded the AI software tool Scopemaster.

Guest Biography:
Amy Pollack 
Author of The Adventures of Jelly Bean and
The Further Adventures of Jelly Bean
 
Bio 👇

Ever since she was in fourth grade – back in 1960 – Amy Meislin Pollack was writing and telling stories about a character named Jelly Bean. She never stopped telling those stories, sharing them with her students over a teaching career that spanned 40+ years. She shared them with her three children when they were younger – and then with her seven grandchildren. Now her stories have been made available to everyone with the recent publishing of two coming-of-age books intended for middle-graders, The Adventures of Jelly Bean and The Further Adventures of Jelly Bean.

“My books touch upon topics of friendship, popularity, death, race, drugs, alcohol, feeling neglected, family issues, and the types of things many kids today are confronting as they look to find their way in an ever-changing world,” says Pollack.

The Adventures of Jelly Bean and The Further Adventures of Jelly Bean are the stories of a fourth-grader who faces challenges that just about all children her age can recognize.  Her parents don’t approve of her favorite friend in the whole world. She has trouble getting along with the brother who is closest in age to her.  The uncle she loves so much is about to marry the most awful woman she could ever imagine, and the girl who used to be her best friend has turned on her. Jelly Bean faces these and other stumbling blocks, including: the difficulties in achieving and maintaining popularity and how important having certain friends should be to her; difficulties inherent in relationships with various friends and family members; and learning how to make decisions on her own.  In these first two books of my middle-grade series, Jelly Bean comes to understand that much of life is trial and error, and that the only constant in life is that it is always changing

About The Adventures of Jelly Bean:

What if the start to your day was falling into the toilet, which caused you to miss your carpool, that in turn caused you to get to school late, that ultimately caused you to miss getting one of the decent parts in the upcoming Thanksgiving play? That is exactly what happens to fourth-grader Jelly. Bean on the day we first meet her. Things only go downhill from there and no one at home seems to have much time for her. Except Roger-Over, her beloved dog.

About The Further Adventures of Jelly Bean:

Jelly Bean in the continuation of her adventures as she seeks solutions to the challenges that confronted her in book 1. Michael, her oldest brother, has dropped out of school and joined the Marines, which usurps much of her parents' attention. Kylie, the new girl in school, faces a medical emergency. And Jelly Bean is still forbidden from going to her best friend's house.

She has to decide how to deal with these dilemmas and more. Along the way she learns about love, death, pain, relationships, the difference between right and wrong and the value of friendship. See the world through the eyes of this forthright fourth-grader as she discovers two truths about life - that it is always complicated, and always changing.
