To make the journey into the Now we will need to leave our analytical mind and its false created self, the ego, behind. From the very first page of Eckhart Tolle's extraordinary book, we move rapidly into a significantly higher altitude where we breathe a lighter air. We become connected to the indestructible essence of our Being, 鈥淭he eternal, ever present One Life beyond the myriad forms of life that are subject to birth and death.鈥?Although the journey is challenging, Eckhart Tolle uses simple language and an easy question and answer format to guide us. <br /><br />A word of mouth phenomenon since its first publication, The Power of Now is one of those rare books with the power to create an experience in readers, one that can radically change their lives for the better.

<p>Who are you? When you start to explore this question, you find out how elusive it really is. Are you a physical body? A collection of experiences and memories? A partner to relationships? Each time you consider these aspects of yourself, you realize that there is much more to you than any of these can define. <strong>The Untethered Soul</strong>, spiritual teacher Michael Singer explores the question of who we are and arrives at the conclusion that our identity is to be found in our consciousness, the fact of our ability to observe ourselves, and the world around us. By tapping into traditions of meditation and mindfulness, Singer shows how the development of consciousness can enable us all to dwell in the present moment and let go of painful thoughts and memories that keep us from achieving happiness and self-realization. </p><p>This book, copublished with the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS), offers a frank and friendly discussion of consciousness and how we can develop it. In part one, he examines the notion of self and the inner dialogue we all live with. Part two examines the experience of energy as it flows through us and works to show readers how to open their hearts to the energy of experience that permeates their lives. Ways to overcome tendencies to close down to the rest of the world are the subject of part three. Enlightenment, the embrace of universal consciousness, is the subject of part four. And finally, in part five, Singer returns to daily life and the pursuit of unconditional happiness. Throughout, the book maintains a light and engaging tone, free from heavy dogma and prescriptive religious references. The easy exercises that figure in each chapter help readers experience the ideas that Singer presents.</p>

<b>Is it possible to venture beyond daily living and experience heightened states of awareness?聽In his latest book,聽Deepak Chopra聽<b>says that higher consciousness is available here and now.</b> <br /> </b> <br /><b>鈥?lt;i>Metahuman</i>聽helps us harvest peak experiences so we can see our truth and mold the universe鈥檚 chaos into a form that brings light to the world.鈥濃€擠r. Mehmet Oz, Attending Physician, New York鈥揚resbyterian, Columbia University聽</b><br /><br /><i>New York Times聽</i>bestselling author聽Deepak Chopra unlocks the secrets to moving beyond our present limitations to access a field of infinite possibilities. How does one do this? By becoming metahuman. <br /><br /> To be metahuman, however, isn鈥檛 science fiction and is certainly not about being a superhero. To be metahuman means to move past the limitation constructed by the mind and enter a new state of awareness where we have deliberate and concrete access to peak experiences that can transform people鈥檚 lives from the inside out. <br /><br />Humans do this naturally鈥攖o a point. For centuries the great artists, scientists, writers, and many so-called ordinary people have gone beyond the everyday physical world. But if we could channel these often bewildering experiences, what would happen? Chopra argues we would wake up to experiences that would blow open your body, mind, and soul. <br /><br /> <i>Metahuman</i>聽invites the reader to walk the path here and now. Waking up, we learn, isn鈥檛 just about mindfulness or meditation. Waking up, to become metahuman, is to expand our consciousness in all that we think, say, and do.聽<br /><br />By going beyond, we liberate ourselves from old conditioning and all the mental constructs that underlie anxiety, tension, and ego-driven demands. Waking up allows life to make sense as never before. To make this as practical as possible, Chopra ends the book with a 31-day guide to becoming metahuman. Once you wake up, he writes, life becomes transformed, because pure consciousness鈥攚hich is the field of all possibilities鈥攄awns in your life. Only then does your infinite potential become your personal reality.<br /><br /><b>Advance praise for </b><i><b>Metahuman</b></i><br /><br />鈥淥ur world is preoccupied with material progress, yet too often we overlook the miracle of our very existence. In this remarkable book, Deepak Chopra reminds us not to be distracted by the idols of our age but to marvel at the deep truths of being.聽<i>Metahuman</i>聽is a handbook to becoming fully alive.鈥?lt;b>鈥擜rthur C.

It requires us to <i>be</i> who we are.鈥?Social scientist Bren茅 Brown, PhD, LMSW, has sparked a global conversation about the experiences that bring meaning to our lives鈥攅xperiences of courage, vulnerability, love, belonging, shame, and empathy. In <i>Braving the Wilderness,</i> Brown redefines what it means to truly belong in an age of increased polarization. With her trademark mix of research, storytelling, and honesty, Brown will again change the cultural conversation while mapping a clear path to true belonging.<br /><br /> Brown argues that we鈥檙e experiencing a spiritual crisis of disconnection, and introduces four practices of true belonging that challenge everything we believe about ourselves and each other. She writes, 鈥淭rue belonging requires us to believe in and belong to ourselves so fully that we can find sacredness both in being a part of something and in standing alone when necessary. But in a culture that鈥檚 rife with perfectionism and pleasing, and with the erosion of civility, it鈥檚 easy to stay quiet, hide in our ideological bunkers, or fit in rather than show up as our true selves and brave the wilderness of uncertainty and criticism. But true belonging is not something we negotiate or accomplish with others; it鈥檚 a daily practice that demands integrity and authenticity. It鈥檚 a personal commitment that we carry in our hearts.鈥?Brown offers us the clarity and courage we need to find our way back to ourselves and to each other. And that path cuts right through the wilderness. Brown writes, 鈥淭he wilderness is an untamed, unpredictable place of solitude and searching. It is a place as dangerous as it is breathtaking, a place as sought after as it is feared. But it turns out to be the place of true belonging, and it鈥檚 the bravest and most sacred place you will ever stand.鈥?/div>

<b>An instant <i>New York Times</i> bestseller<br /><br />Two spiritual giants. Five days. One timeless question.</b><br /> <b>聽</b><br />Nobel Peace Prize Laureates His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu have survived more than fifty years of exile and the soul-crushing violence of oppression. Despite their hardships鈥攐r, as they would say, because of them鈥攖hey are two of the most joyful people on the planet.<br /><br />In April 2015, Archbishop Tutu traveled to the Dalai Lama's home in Dharamsala, India, to celebrate His Holiness's eightieth birthday and to create what they hoped would be a gift for others. They looked back on their long lives to answer a single burning question: How do we find joy in the face of life's inevitable suffering?<br /><br />They traded intimate stories, teased each other continually, and shared their spiritual practices. By the end of a week filled with laughter and punctuated with tears, these two global heroes had stared into the abyss and despair of our time and revealed how to live a life brimming with joy.<br /><br />This book offers us a rare opportunity to experience their astonishing and unprecendented week together, from the first embrace to the final good-bye.<br /><br />We get to listen as they explore the Nature of True Joy and confront each of the Obstacles of Joy鈥攆rom fear, stress, and anger to grief, illness, and death. They then offer us the Eight Pillars of Joy, which provide the foundation for lasting happiness. Throughout, they include stories, wisdom, and science. Finally, they share their daily Joy Practices that anchor their own emotional and spiritual lives.<br /><br />The Archbishop has never claimed sainthood, and the Dalai Lama considers himself a simple monk. In this unique collaboration, they offer us the reflection of real lives filled with pain and turmoil in the midst of which they have been able to discover a level of peace, of courage, and of joy to which we can all aspire in our own lives.

In the tradition of Thomas Merton鈥檚 spiritual classic <i>The Seven Storey Mountain</i> or Thomas Moore鈥檚 <i>Care of the Soul, Waking Up to the Dark</i> is a deeply resonant and personal project鈥攁 modern gospel that is an investigation of the relationship between darkness and the soul. The darkness Clark Strand is talking about here is literal: the darkness of the nighttime, of a world before electricity, when there was a rhythm to life that followed the sun鈥檚 rising and setting.<br /> 聽<br /> Strand here offers penetrating insight into the spiritual enrichment that can be found when we pull the plug on our billion-watt culture. He argues that the insomnia so many of us experience as 鈥渢he Hour of the Wolf鈥?is really 鈥渢he Hour of God鈥濃€攁 wellspring of rest and renewal, and an ancient reservoir of ancestral wisdom and inspiration. And in a powerful yet surprising turn, he shares with us an urgent message for the world, received through a mysterious young woman, about the changes we all know are coming.<br /> 聽<br /> <i>Waking Up to the Dark</i> is a book for those of us who awaken in the night and don鈥檛 know why we can鈥檛 get back to sleep, and a book for those of us who have grown uncomfortable in real darkness鈥攚hich we so rarely experience these days, since our first impulse is always to turn on the light. Most of all, it is a book for those of us who wonder about our souls: When the lights are always on, when there is always noise around us, do our souls have the nourishment they need in which to grow?<br /> 聽<br /> <b>Praise for <i>Waking Up to the Dark</i></b><br /> 聽<br />鈥淎 celebration of the life-enriching鈥攊ndeed, indispensable鈥攑roperties of the night . . .
