The Wild Edge of Sorrow: Rituals of Renewal and the Sacred Work of Grief
Noted psychotherapist Francis Weller provides an essential guide for navigating the deep waters of sorrow and loss in this lyrical yet practical handbook for mastering the art of grieving. Describing how Western patterns of amnesia and anesthesia affect our capacity to cope with personal and collective sorrows, Weller reveals the new vitality we may encounter when we welcome, rather than fear, the pain of loss. Through moving personal stories, poetry, and insightful reflections he leads us into the central energy of sorrow, and to the profound healing and heightened communion with each other and our planet that reside alongside it.The Wild Edge of Sorrow explains that grief has always been communal and illustrates how we need the healing touch of others, an atmosphere of compassion, and the comfort of ritual in order to fully metabolize our grief. Weller describes how we often hide our pain from the world, wrapping it in a secret mantle of shame. This causes sorrow to linger unexpressed in our bodies, weighing us down and pulling us into the territory of depression and death. We have come to fear grief and feel too alone to face an encounter with the powerful energies of sorrow. Those who work with people in grief, who have experienced the loss of a loved one, who mourn the ongoing destruction of our planet, or who suffer the accumulated traumas of a lifetime will appreciate the discussion of obstacles to successful grief work such as privatized pain, lack of communal rituals, a pervasive feeling of fear, and a culturally restrictive range of emotion. Weller highlights the intimate bond between grief and gratitude, sorrow and intimacy. In addition to showing us that the greatest gifts are often hidden in the things we avoid, he offers powerful tools and rituals and a list of resources to help us transform grief into a force that allows us to live and love more fully.

The Healthy Deviant: A Rule Breaker's Guide to Being Healthy in an Unhealthy World
Want to be healthy in an unhealthy world? Get ready to start breaking some rules. This convention-busting book explains how, equipping you with the counterintuitive skills you need to transform your body and your life for the better.Here, award-winning health journalist Pilar Gerasimo points out that in an unhealthy society like ours, becoming and staying a healthy person requires choices, habits, and attitudes so unconventional, they amount to a form of positive social deviance.After all, what kind of society makes being healthy so difficult that only a single-digit percentage of the population can pull it off? The answer: a sick society. And within a sick society--one where illness, anxiety, and depression are the prevailing norms --what does it mean to be one of the few people to beat those unhealthy odds? It means bucking a lot of your society's norms and rejecting a lot of its conventional health prescriptions. It also means acknowledging a disturbing truth: If you aren't breaking the rules, you're probably breaking yourself.That's the simple, provocative philosophy behind The Healthy Deviant, one seasoned health seeker's quest to reframe healthy choices as a positive form of social rebellion. Combining insights from sociology, psychology, evolutionary biology, functional medicine, and the school of hard knocks, this category-defying book rejects the idea that diet and exercise alone can save us--or are even the best places to start.Instead, Gerasimo's 14-day Healthy-Deviant Adventure Program presents a series of powerful perspective shifts and simple daily practices -- plus illustrations, infographics, worksheets, reminders, and progress tracking tools -- that put you firmly back in charge of your own wellbeing. Integrating two decades of journalistic research with keen cultural observation, Gerasimo explains how we can reclaim our health, happiness, and autonomy -- by refusing to play games that are rigged against us, and by breaking away from the systems that have been breaking us down. Part manifesto, part whispered wake-up call, The Healthy Deviant is a modern-day survival guide for being a healthy person in an unhealthy world. Starting now.

With The MindBody Code, Dr. Mario Martinez shares the rewards of an investigation that has spanned generations and cultures to reveal the most effective methods for initiating deep and lasting change.

Die Wise: A Manifesto for Sanity and Soul
Die Wise does not offer seven steps for coping with death. It does not suggest ways to make dying easier. It pours no honey to make the medicine go down. Instead, with lyrical prose, deep wisdom, and stories from his two decades of working with dying people and their families, Stephen Jenkinson places death at the center of the page and asks us to behold it in all its painful beauty. Die Wise teaches the skills of dying, skills that have to be learned in the course of living deeply and well. Die Wise is for those who will fail to live forever. Dying well, Jenkinson writes, is a right and responsibility of everyone. It is not a lifestyle option. It is a moral, political, and spiritual obligation each person owes their ancestors and their heirs. Die Wise dreams such a dream, and plots such an uprising. How we die, how we care for dying people, and how we carry our dead: this work makes our capacity for a village-mindedness, or breaks it.

Jeevan, Amoda Maa
Revised New Edition of How to Find God in Everything (published in 2008). We are all looking for meaning among the chaos that is modern life. When we look around it is all too easy to see a world that is spiralling out of control, but if we can make changes to our own perceptions - changing our own reality - we can start to make a genuine difference to the world around us. We can turn suffering to joy and terror to peace by opening ourselves up to the concept of fulfilling our own potential. To do this, we must see that everyone and everything is a manifestation of God (or Awakeness, Presence or Being) - that everyone and everything is one with the divine and at every moment we can make the choice of what we let ourselves feel. If we can learn to use this control in every area of our lives - from how we eat, move, breathe, think and feel to how we relate to one another, our work, our finances and our creativity - we can change not just our own lives but also the world we live in. Written in a lively, engaging and very accessible style that sparkles with clarity and grace, Amoda explains her use of the word 'God' in this context, and the book reflects the important changes in Amoda's teaching in recent years as her own awakening has evolved. Beautifully presented and practical as well as inspiring, this is a brilliant introduction to the world of non-duality, non-separation and our intrinsic oneness, and supports the reader on their path to inner joy and freedom. 'No amount of fighting to save the whales or singing for world peace will ultimately create a harmonious humanity if we are still divided within. If you have not fully embraced yourself, then how can you fully embrace the world?'
Healing Through Mindfulness: Effective Practices for Chronic Health Conditions
Siegel, Ronald D.
Heal from your most common health concerns with an evidence-based recovery program.If you're struggling with an ongoing health issue - such as back or neck pain, migraines, eczema, insomnia, digestive problems, or a host of other common concerns - you probably wonder if you'll ever feel truly healthy again. Fortunately, there is a powerful, medically proven strategy that can help. In Healing Through Mindfulness, pioneering mind-body psychologist Dr. Ronald Siegel presents a revolutionary program for harnessing the power of mindfulness practice to help you heal from chronic health conditions and embrace your life once again.You might have more power to heal than you think.Did you know that clinical studies show that there are usually no notable structural differences between those who report ongoing back or neck pain and those who don't? That the vast majority of all physician visits are for stress-related conditions? Or that stressful jobs are more often associated with physical pain than labor-intensive ones?While any chronic health condition can result from medical reasons alone, current research shows that a remarkable amount of pain and illness is actually caused or maintained by psychological factors such as stress, fear, and anxiety. This turns out to be good news because it means you have the power to become your own healer. Mindfulness has been clinically proven to be a powerful tool in resolving chronic health conditions - without negative side effects or expensive medical bills. Go beyond symptom management, and get back to your normal life. In this six-session training course, Dr. Siegel guides you through a proven recovery program, teaching you a variety of mindfulness practices along the way. You'll discover how to restructure your beliefs around where your pain comes from, learn to work with negative emotions, and begin to enjoy normal activities once again. If you've tried almost everything and you're still not getting better, Healing Through Mindfulness might be just what you need to finally get your life back.
