Memoir Turns Demons Into Hope in Breathtaking Collection of “Love Stories”
The author is an enthusiastic and intelligent chronicler of her own story, exposing warts as generously as proclaiming victories. The writing comes from the pen of a person not afraid of self-reflection — to the contrary, rather obsessed by it and celebrating it — in words that clearly show an appreciation for language and a confidence within it.
And through all the narrative, as painful as it can be (but what learning process isn’t?), she leaves us with joy, gratitude and hope.

Dying to Live: Love Stories Reviews
Bernard E. Clair, Esq. (Cohen Clair Lans Greifer & Simpson LLP)
It’s much more than a coming-of-age tale. Dr. Becker pulls the curtain off of relationships that she had (and continues to have) with her family, friends, lovers, and her patients – all without fear. I loved this book and can’t wait to tell everyone who I know about it. And of course, I’m making plans right this instant to pass it along to my friends and family. Great; just great!

“So I am both compelled and happy to tell you that I believe the book is WONDERFUL, COURAGEOUS AND A LATTER DAY JOBIAN GOSPEL! Did you set out to write it as a modern book of Jewish mysticism , with a splash of early Christian Gnosticism (“ hidden truth”) and a dash of Transcendentalism? Because that’s what it shouts to me, so far. But above it all, it’s a very very “Jewish” book, in the best and most loving sense of the word.
I must also say that I call your book “ courageous” , because I have never seen anyone, with such relentless honesty and sheer bravery, strip themselves so emotionally and psychologically bare , as you have in this book, to demonstrate your thesis.”

“The Evangelist Luke tells us” To whom much is given…much is required” and this applies so well to the work that Dr. Becker has done over many years. This book draws from her deep well of wisdom to teach all of us the many ways in which love connects us to our authentic selves. Her words strike deep chords of emotions and illuminate our inner light with a greater understanding and compassion. I highly recommend this book. a beautiful contribution to a more conscious and intentional life.”

“It was a joy to read Jackie’s book, “Dying to Live: Love Stories. Her stories, coupled with her insights, intuition, love of others and of herself, bring hope and light to the darkness we all, at some point, have experienced. An excellent read….Maria Danziger, A friend honored to share in her journey.”
Elke Geising, MS, CEO, Founder
“It is beautiful reading; poetic language, interspersed with mystical analogies, music, lyrics from captivating songs, and refreshing everyday language. It is a pleasure to relate so easily to the humanness, strength, and vulnerability of the author, unencumbered by professional lingo or popular wellness jargons. She makes no promises of fast-tracking spirituality or lists expert models for bypassing hard work on oneself.
The author shines a caring light into depths of the unconscious – and she becomes a safe and experienced companion for seekers of healing to venture there and encounter what they might otherwise be afraid to face on their own.
This book is a must-read for all those who struggle with relational wounds and feel that love is missing in their lives. Her enthusiasm in sharing joy, finding freedom from bondage is so contagious that it pulls the seeker past barriers of their own fear and shame into hope and possibilities.”
Elke Geising, MS, CEO
