The Treasure You Seek
A Year's Reflection on Inspiration and Change
Joseph Campbell, the twentieth-century American mythologist and lecturer, once said that “the cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.”
Part diary, part social commentary and part inspirational time-capsule, Siobhan Kukolic has created a book brimming with wise and candid observations about taking the first step toward transforming your life. The Treasure You Seek is unique and compulsively readable, offering us a snapshot of a year in our world peppered with anecdotes and advice from some of our best-known philosophers, authors, actors, musicians and politicians. Using quotes from everyone from Henry David Thoreau to Tina Fey, Siobhan weaves together her own experience with the wisdom of others who have something important to tell us.
Originally started as a year-long blogging project encouraging people to follow their dreams, Siobhan hopes to inspire others to take a risk and be the change.
Siobhan Kukolic is a storyteller at heart. She started her career as a copywriter for organizations like Esso, Mead Johnson Nutrition, Grand & Toy, Labatt and SC Johnson. She is also passionate about community involvement and social change. As co-chair of her children’s school council for seven years, she helped create an eco-classroom and co-ordinated the building of a school peace garden. She co-founded a not-for-profit healthy kids movement called Blueberry Shark, and rallied enough media attention to help crowdfund $105,000 to pay for an unfunded drug for a mother of two dying of stage-four brain cancer. She also used media attention to nudge the government right before an election and get a $360,000-a-year drug covered for a young cystic fibrosis patient. Her letters to the editor are frequently published in the National Post, she is a regular blog contributor for The Huffington Post and she has made deputations at city council and the school board. She spends her time blogging and juggling the schedules of her three kids as they follow their dreams in competitive Irish dance and ice hockey. Siobhan believes in leaving comfort zones, saying what you mean to say, standing up for what’s right and following your heart. www.siobhankukolic.com
