God and Love on Rt 80

By

As a teen at St. Paul’s School in New Hampshire, the author had a recurring dream of a youth about to jump off a ledge somewhere out west. Guided by the dream as if a premonition, the boy journeyed across the country on Rt. 80 and encountered the youth on the Golden Gate Bridge where the dream became a reality as he rescued the youth in an episode of synchronicity. At that moment, the boy understood that while we exist in different places and at different times we are all inevitably intertwined, and that coincidences are just God’s way of being anonymous. GOD AND LOVE ON RT. 80 weaves together thirteen episodes of synchronicity from Post’s journey to demonstrate the power of human connectedness and the value in being open and hopeful to surprises. It’s a book that fits in the long tradition of successful metaphysical titles like The Teachings of Don Juan, Be Here Now, The Secret, The Power of Now, and Loving What Is, but by a highly regarded scientist whose work has been praised by his peers and popular readers alike.

Hug Therapy

By

The valuable concepts and methods presented in Hug Therapy gives readers increased connectivity in the world. It also provides an opportunity to engage in an online community with a healthy and hugful message providing inspiration and support. The Hug is something everyone can relate to and deeply benefit from at no cost ((minus the cost of the book!)). Unlike many self-help or self-development books Hug Therapy has an interactive program that meets readers where they are and supports them hug by hug on their personal journey. This empowers each reader with user friendly tools to enhance and support their efforts to grow and change. Technology and social media are detached and often toxic. There is ongoing research into the impact is has on our mental health. The Hugging Ambassador, Gary Havel Jr. was the first Hugging Ambassador to successfully complete a 21-day hugging journey on Facebook Live. Much attention is focused on how the internet can be used to isolate and disconnect. However, it can also be used powerfully as a tool to be deeply and meaningfully connected to our family, friends and fellow huggers. This book and movement allows for a unique platform for likeminded thinkers and huggers to connect and be able to support each other and create traction around their individual causes to have more connection in the world. In a world with much division, bullying and name calling Hug Therapy is a platform that can unite leaders in creating powerful positive messages and hugful change. Doctor Stone is real and approachable. Readers will have access to interacting with him and benefit from dealing with their specific issues, questions, or concerns. His focus is on being available and having leaders go on 21-day journeys that inspire the individual and like a Stone being dropped in a pond has many powerful reverberations. The book includes a wide range of tools that the reader has direct access to and support in using most effectively in a way that fits each reader’s specific circumstances and challenges. One of the most powerful tools is the hugging life baseline pre and post-test. This gives the reader a snapshot of their life and what is working or not working. Or possibly not working for them as well as they would like. It allows readers to quickly have clarity about what impacts they want to create and put in motion a plan to create these changes through the power of hugging. It also allows for a follow-up after the 21-day journey to see in what areas they experienced growth and use this to be increasingly successful and generative on future 21-day journeys. https://www.thehugdoctor.com/hugging-life-baseline/ There are concrete exercises that engage readers and allow them to embrace a rich interactive process. This makes it possible for an impact to be made from the first minutes and certainly in the first day readers pick up and embrace the book. Hug Therapy isn’t just inspirational, it’s pragmatic with actionable tools and methods.
