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.
A 25-Day Adventure Where You Get to Be the Hero Who am I and why am I here, you ask? You're here to be the hero of your own heroic journey. And there's no one better than you to do it. With Becoming the Hero of Your Journey, JP Sears takes you through a 25-day series of mini yet mighty adventures for emotional healing, reclaiming the forgotten parts of yourself, and breaking through the limitations of what you think is possible. In each lesson, JP shares helpful teachings and practical exercises for making the trek with confidence, levity, and inner peace. There will be pain. There will be discomfort. But on the bright side, you'll see some unprecedented growth and evolution. A Three-Stage Journey to Authenticity and Fulfillment The trip with JP begins by acknowledging how crappy your life is, to whatever extent of crappiness that may be. Why has it gotten so crappy? Because deep inside you know it's time to let go of the false persona you've been busily perfecting and answer the call of who you really are supposed to be. This ain't easy but JP has your back. This section is aptly called "The Call." The next phase of your journey is even more fun! It's "The Initiation." Think of it as a spiritual (and legal) form of hazing. You get the pleasure of going through what is affectionately referred to as a "trial by fire." Yep, we go pyro here and burn away the self-identity that isn't who we are despite building it for the entirety of our lives to this point. Don't worry - it doesn't end there, with you as a worthless pile of ash. The final stage of your heroic journey is none other than "The Return." Like the fiery phoenix, you get to rise from the ashes of the false self and be reborn into your fully genuine self in all its authentic glory. Plus, you'll have a few amazing things to offer the world around you. (No spoilers here....) The Journey That Keeps on Journeying "It's not called 'the hero's destination'", says JP. "It's called the hero's journey. And this journey is an upward spiral of personal growth and evolution that has no ceiling." Here is his invitation to "keep spiraling upward", fully engaged in the daily adventure of risking to be more and more the real you.

The Hilarious World of Depression
For years John Moe, critically-acclaimed public radio personality and host of The Hilarious World of Depression podcast, struggled with depression; it plagued his family and claimed the life of his brother in 2007. As Moe came to terms with his own illness, he began to see similar patterns of behavior and coping mechanisms surfacing in conversations with others, including high-profile comedians who’d struggled with the disease. Moe saw that there was tremendous comfort and community in open dialogue about these shared experiences and that humor had a unique power. Thus was born the podcast The Hilarious World of Depression.Inspired by the immediate success of the podcast, Moe has written a remarkable investigation of the disease, part memoir of his own journey, part treasure trove of laugh-out-loud stories and insights drawn from years of interviews with some of the most brilliant minds facing similar challenges.

The One-Life Solution: Reclaim Your Personal Life While Achieving Greater Professional Success
Do you feel that if you could get rid of some of the chaos in your work life, you could take your performance to a greater level? Do you stay late at the office many nights, trying to empty an inbox that never seems to diminish? Do you have difficulty dealing with cantankerous bosses or passive-aggressive coworkers? Do you find yourself checking your BlackBerry - almost against your will - during dates, family dinners, or your children's soccer games? If you've answered yes to any of the above, chances are you feel fragmented, pulled in too many directions at once, frustrated. Your work life has taken over your personal life. In The One-Life Solution, Dr. Henry Cloud, consultant, bestselling author of the Boundaries series and Integrity, and clinical psychologist, examines the workplace. He demonstrates how our failure to maintain a unified life with good boundaries at the office not only blurs the line between the professional and the personal, but leaves us less equipped to deal with the problems of today's workplace: stress, heavy workload, and a blistering pace. As a result, we are overworked, overstressed, and unhappier than ever. Through real-world examples from years of working with leaders at companies large and small, Dr. Cloud shows us how to construct and enforce better boundaries against the technological devices, bullying bosses, and distracting coworkers who invade our time and space.
