Hug Therapy

By

Don’t Just Feel Good—Do Good & Feel Great

Readers of The Happiness ProjectThe Power of Moments and I Hear You won’t want to miss Hug Therapy.

The science behind hugging. Dr. Stone’s prescription is for a 21-second hug today and every day. One of the many benefits of hugging is that longer hugs have proven physiological benefits. Hugs are good for your immune system, your stress response, your sleep patterns, and so much more.

Hug Therapy brings to life the meaning of hugging. In this book, you will discover:

  • What it means to really, truly give yourself and others the profound gift of a hug
  • How to be powerfully in action and more aware of what matters to you most
  • That you may choose to begin hugging some strangers…with their blessing of course
  • And perhaps most importantly, that together, one literal or metaphorical hug at a time, we make the world a better, healthier, and more connected place.

Embrace life. Hug Therapy shares a full-on, unconditional hug from Dr. Stone Kraushaar. In this book, he invites you to wrap your arms around yourself, your life, and everyone around you in a whole new way. A good embrace—a hug—squeezes every ounce of fear, worry, and negativity out of your spirit, leaving you with nothing but warmth, inner peace, and a feeling of connection.

Give a hug, get a hug. Most people have difficulty remembering the last time someone gave them an all-encompassing hug. Hug Therapy encourages you to change that, one physical or metaphorical embrace at a time. It’s a “do good and feel great” book that will help you live more in the moment and stay tuned into what really matters.

Expert advice from a world-class hugger. Dr. Stone Kraushaar is a clinical psychologist known as The Hug Doctor™. Also the founder of Hug Therapy™, he warmly invites you to jump into the 21-Day Hugging Journey™ and transform your life.

Sex After Grief

By

#1 New Release in Sacred Sexuality, Winner of the American Society of Journalists and Authors (ASJA) Writing Award in Service/Self-Help ─ Reclaim Your Sexuality After Loss

An Honest Approach to Hard Questions: Sex is complicated at the best of times—but when we’re overcome by grief, it’s especially mysterious and confusing. How do we nurture ourselves as sexual beings when we’re grieving the death of a partner? Why does taking care of ourselves sexually matter at a time when we’d rather hide under the covers and wail? How do we know when it’s time to open ourselves to the sexual phase of a new relationship? And how do we do it?

A Grief Book like No Other: Sex after Grief is the first book to address sex and grief together and treat sex as a normal, positive, life-affirming part of emerging from such a difficult time. Joan Price, the top expert on senior sex, draws on her own experiences as a widow since 2008, when she lost the love of her life to cancer. She shares her raw grief journey, sexual reawakening (and the many stumbles along the way), and attempts to dip back into dating, along with excellent advice on handling each step.

Recovery on Your Own Timeline, in Your Own Way: As Price says, there’s no right or wrong method or timeline for bringing our sexuality back into into our lives, whether it’s with our own hands, a friend with benefits, a hook-up, a new companion, or any combination. Sex After Grief includes a variety of people’s personal stories from folks of all genders and orientations. Some jumped into sex quickly. Some took years. Some withdrew from sexual possibility. No one was wrong, and no choice is defective or shameful.

Sex After Grief includes:

  • Inspiring tales of how different people brought sex back into their lives after the loss of their spouse or partner
  • Guidelines for dating again and getting sexual with a new person
  • Reasons that solo sex is healthy and can be the path to feeling sexual again
  • Advice from therapists, grief counselors, and sex coaches
  • Self-help takeaways for creating an action plan

Readers of Modern LossThe Grief Recovery Handbook and Second Firsts will grow from and appreciate Sex After Grief.

Searching for That Self-Help High

“Inspiring and hilarious, Zen Bender perfectly captures our misguided quest for perfection….” — Patricia Velasquez, actress in Arrested Development and The Mummy, author of Straight Walk, supermodel, and UNESCO Artist for Peace.

Yahoo Finance Best Business Books of 2019 and #1 New Release in Yoga, Zen Philosophy, and Humor

Craving a quick fix. When the recession turned her life upside down, Stephanie Krikorian had to reinvent her life...and fast. She started ghostwriting self-help books for women. Between writing and researching she realized that everywhere she looked there was AFOG (another freaking opportunity for growth). Soon she wasn't just writing each book; she was living them. This was the start of a ten-year zen bender of dieting, dating, journaling, meditating, and Marie-Kondo-ing on a quest for that ultimate self-help high.

Fifty and fabulous. Stephanie Krikorian spent her forties trying all of the dating hacks to find love and respect, all of the diets to build self-esteem in a new body, and all of the spiritual guidance to become centered through self-care. On the brink of turning fifty she realized that being better wasn't what she craved; it was something else altogether.

A Self-confidence book for women. For anyone tired of promises to change everything in just thirty days, this book is a breath of fresh air. Zen Bender is the story of one woman's journey to radical acceptance, with some questionable advice along the way. A witty, moving, insightful story, the woman behind bestselling celebrity self-help books shares her story of being hooked on the self-help fix for a decade before learning that all the self-help in the world won't help you trust your gut.

Readers who enjoyed self-confidence books for women like The Universe Has Your BackThe Self-Love Experiment, or The Gifts of Imperfection; will love Zen Bender: A Decade-Long Enthusiastic Quest to Fix Everything (That Was Never Broken).

Anxious Art

By

Decompress Your Stress

Anxious Art is for readers and doodlers seeking relief from anxiety and stress through meditative, creative processes.

What if we took our stress and used it to create art that brings us peace?

A 2016 study at Drexel university that examined the effects of creative activity on reducing levels of the stress hormone cortisol discovered that “45 minutes of art making…resulted in statistically significant lowering of cortisol levels.” We all know cortisol is the stress hormone, so grab a pen or pencil and let the meditations and writing prompts in this mindfulness journal take you on a calming journey to a healthier, happier mind.

T.S. Eliot once said, “Anxiety is the handmaiden of creativity,” but if he had this creative journal during times of worry, he surely would have said creativity was the handmaiden to peace. With this friendly, calming companion, you will find that you are much more present in the here and now.

A unique guided journal that will calm and inspire: When used as self-expression, creativity can allow us to take part in what psychologists call “sublimation,” or the transformation of negative or socially unacceptable impulses into socially acceptable or even beautiful creations. Anxious Art offers inventive prompts, art projects, and affirmations to inspire artistic activities that distract from feelings of distress and anxiety. As you experience this transformative guided journal, you will work with:

  • Lyrical affirmations that build self-confidence and reduce fear
  • Therapeutic writing exercises that root you in the present and spark joy
  • Doodling that calms your emotions
  • Guided breathing exercises that bring you into the present moment

Fans of Wreck This JournalTiny Buddha’s Worry Journal, or I Am Her Now, will love the calming benefits of Anxious Art.

Depression Hates a Moving Target

Running Can Be the Best Therapy for Depression

“Nita's brave, honest book imparts hard-won lessons on using running to combat depression.” ―Scott Douglas, contributing writer for Runner's World and author of Running Is My Therapy

#1 Best Seller in Running & Jogging, Exercise & Fitness, Depression, and Bipolar Disorder

An unforgettable story of tenacity, running therapy, beating depression, and the companionship of a dog. The Dog Writers Association of America awarded Nita Sweeney a Maxwell Medallion for excellence in writing about the Human/Animal Bond for her memoir.

Running is my therapy. Before she discovered running therapy, Nita Sweeney was 49 years-old, chronically depressed, occasionally manic, and unable to jog for more than 60 seconds at a time. Using running, Nita discovered an inner strength she didn’t know she possessed, and with the help of her canine companion, she found herself on the way to completing her first marathon. In her memoir, Sweeney shares how she overcame emotional and physical challenges to finish the race and come back from the brink.

It's the best therapy for depression. Anyone who has struggled with depression knows the ways the mind can defeat you. However, it is possible to transform yourself with the power of running. You may learn that you can endure more than you think, and that there’s no other depression therapy quite like pavement beneath your feet.

Depression Hates a Moving Target is a witty and poignant story of rediscovery. Whether you’re born to run or just looking for rebirth:

  • Be inspired by the powerful story of one woman―and her dog
  • Cheer on Nita as she endures the challenges of a marathon and a mind in turmoil
  • Discover the power of running to overcome obstacles and boost your mental health

If you loved running books like Born to Run or Let Your Mind Run, you’ll love Depression Hates a Moving Target: How Running With My Dog Brought Me Back from the Brink.

Rediscover Love and Desire after Sexual Assault

Readers of The Body Keeps the ScoreThe Deepest Well and Trauma Stewardship should read Want: Recovering Desire after Sexual Assault.

Have the courage to heal. We know, increasingly, how common and devastating sexual violence is for women, but we don’t always talk about how survivors can recover from the trauma and return to desire, sexuality, trust, and pleasure. Want is the story of how Julie Peters did just that—and how you can, too.

Move past the fog of trauma.  In the years after the assault, Julie was in what she calls the fog of trauma: the colorless, tasteless experience of barely getting through the day. No one—not counsellors, support groups, or other survivors—could give her any advice about how to find the desire that could bring her back to joy, intimacy, and connection. She had to make it up on her own. In Want, Julie tells the story of getting from the devastation of trauma to living a full life in eight sometimes challenging, often bumbling, and occasionally delightful steps.

Experience hope, healing and recovery. We have plenty of stories about the helplessness, frustration, and vengeful feelings that can follow trauma. Culturally, we have started a conversation about these experiences, and we’re all confused about what this all means for our relationships with each other. We need stories of hope, healing, and recovery. Survivors of assault, if you've been thinking to yourself, "I thought it was just me," Julie is here to show you that you are not alone. Your loved ones may not know how to support you, but they can learn more about your experiences and how to walk alongside you through this book, just as you can learn how to recover from the trauma you've experienced. Want offers a window into one person’s experience of recovery—plus the happy ending we all need to know is possible after trauma.

Living FULL

#1 New Release in Eating Disorders ─ Winning My Battle With Eating Disorders

Finding My FULL: This is my journey from starving to letting myself be FULL–physically & emotionally. What is living a FULL life? Having anorexia, bulimia, or vacillating between the two, you are trying to achieve an empty feeling through starvation or purging. Living a FULL life is a life where you aren’t starving anymore―starving for acceptance and love from others and yourself. It’s a life where you are feeding your mind and soul with good thoughts and foods. A life without your eating disorder.

Victim of the eating disorder monster: Imagine waking in a hospital bed to find your frail, pale arm punctured by an IV transferring fluids and nutrients into your weak, stiff body. What happened? You’re an adult, age twenty-six, and you just had a seizure precipitated by your chronic, secretive, decades-long struggle with unacknowledged eating disorders. You have no friends and no normal young-adult experiences. Living FULL is written by Danielle Sherman-Lazar, a woman who passed through the eating disorder crucible to recovery, sharing the most intimate and shameful details of her mental illness. Living FULL is Danielle's story.

Hidden out of shame: Eating disorders in young adults are hardly talked about, but are pervasive. Eating disorders are kept hidden out of shame. A groundbreaking 2012 study published in the International Journal of Eating Disorders found that about 13 percent of women over age 50 exhibit eating disorder symptoms.

Journey to recovery: Living FULL chronicles the author's step-by-step descent into the full-blown eating disorder nightmare and her path to recovery. Recovery comes from the Maudsley Approach, a regimen of supervised controlled eating or refeeding by out-patient helpers that eventually can result in recovery.

Benefits of reading Living FULL:

  • See how to confront your eating disorder demon
  • Learn from someone who won her eating disorder battle
  • Discover a new and beautiful life

How to Ikigai

Live Your Best Life

"The practice of ikigai leads to a longer and more joy-filled life'" ―Elise Marie Collins, author of Super Ager

#1 New Release in Eastern Philosophy and Customs & Traditions

Ancient, time-tested wisdom. Okinawa, Japan is a tiny, tiny island south of the Japanese mainland where people live their life’s purpose every day. How is it possible for so many to live each day in such meaningful ways? It is Ikigai. How to Ikigai describes the lifestyle choices that have led to an island full of fulfilled, long-living people.

Magical reality come to life. Examples of ikigai in action are often magical. Take David Michiels. David stuttered well into his adulthood. In clinical terms, his stutter was difficult to treat. When David started to work in a liquor store, his focus turned to one specific section of the sales floor, the scotch section. As he spent more of his days learning about scotch, he began to share his knowledge with customers. Eventually, David noticed that his stutter vanished when he talked  about scotch. His life began to change. Today, he is a renowned whiskey expert, traveling the world tasting and purchasing whiskey.

A humble look at happiness. How to Ikigai describes the concept of Ikigai with clarity and meaning. It brings together an exploration of joy not unlike that found in The Book of Joy by the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, a look inward reminiscent of The Untethered Soul by Michael A. Singer, and deep truths like those also explored by Singer in The Surrender Experiment

How to Ikigai explains a simple four-directions map for living a meaningful life:

  • Do what you love
  • Do what you’re good at
  • Do what the world needs
  • Do what you can be rewarded for

You liked Awakening Your Ikigai, My Little Ikigai Journal, or Ikigai: The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life? Then you’ll love How to Ikigai!

The High-Risk Guide to Twin Pregnancy

"An intimate account, told with flagging and unflagging optimism, Duffy’s story ensures that others need not ride alone through this rollercoaster experience.” —Suzy Becker, Author of One Good Egg

#1 New Release in Pediatric Emergencies

This is a twenty-nine-year-old mother’s harrowing and inspiring adventure through a high-risk twin pregnancy. But this isn’t only a book about pregnancy for twins. It’s also an inspirational story to which all women can relate, especially when confronting any type of adversity.

A crisis when expecting. One minute Crystal was sitting at a candlelight dinner in Paris with her husband. The next she was back home in Houston, sitting in her Ob-Gyn’s office concerned that she was having a second miscarriage. Instead, she found out she was pregnant with twins! Since Crystal and her husband already had a two-year-old daughter, she couldn’t imagine why mothering twins would be all that different. But, after a family vacation at the beach, she finds out that her twins have a life-threatening condition called Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome, which meant that one is transfusing blood (disproportionately) to the other.

A riveting true story. Forced to stay in the hospital to be under direct care, Crystal wondered how she would pass time the next few weeks, away from her husband and daughter. She soon found out as she embarks on an emotional rollercoaster. Twin to Twin is a raw and inspirational story filled with tenderness, vulnerability and humor. It chronicles the wildest, most terrifying and challenging year of Crystal’s life, which is also the most beautiful and eye-opening.

While reading Twin to Twin:

  • Share the experience of a high-risk twin pregnancy
  • Gain valuable insights
  • Be inspired

If you found solace and inspiration in What to Do When You’re Having Two; You Can Two! or When You’re Expecting Twins, Triplets or Quads; then you’ll love Twin to Twin.

Celebrating and Empowering Black Lives and Black Authors

#1 New Release in Herbs, Spices & Condiments ─ Much More Than Just a Pot Cookbook, Cannabis Cuisine Elevates Marijuana to a Fine Dining Experience

Chef Andrea Drummer is a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu and co-owner of Elevation VIP Co-op, a Los Angeles–based company that caters high-end, intimate dinner parties ─ AND, she is a world-class marijuana chef.

Cooking with marijuana. In her cookbook, chef and author Andrea Drummer guides home cooks through an adventure of the palette. Chef Drummer is a firm believer that the food always comes first. Cannabis Cuisine is about the art of marijuana as an ingredient. It's more than a cannabis cookbook. Like a fine wine, cannabis is meant to be paired according to its unique profile. With every dish, she looks to the textures, flavors and scents of the bud before masterfully pairing it with ingredients that transcend the dish. The culinary arts and science of responsible dosage are presented in a way that treats cannabis as one of the best ingredients in the world to cook with. Every item she prepares incorporates the flavor profile of the strain that she is using with what is being prepared, thus the cannabis is just as important as any other ingredient.

Filled with recipes, but more than a marijuana cookbook. Cannabis Cuisine elevates marijuana to the highest levels of cuisine. Never before have recipes been presented like this. From the comforts of southern kitchens to the upscale stoves of Michelin star restaurants, each recipe is carefully crafted to elevate both the dish and the cook.
