Face Life Threatening Situations and Find Hope

“This book can be a companion to anyone in physical or mental pain and crisis.” —Louise L. Hay, author of You Can Heal Your Life

When confronted with a life threatening condition, most people think that doctors have the final word. But, Jean Shinoda Bolen reminds us that the mind has a powerful effect on a prognosis and the process of healing.

Everyone faces illness. Whether it’s a personal health crisis or sickness a loved one is experiencing, none of us escape this life without encountering some form of illness or death. While we can try to ignore the reality, internationally known author and speaker Dr. Jean Shinoda Bolen suggests we do the exact opposite: face it. By encountering the frightening world of serious illness and death, we can better uncover how it gives purpose to the journey of souls.

Trust what you know in your bones. Dr. Bolen shares how what we learn often connects to what we know to be true. As a psychiatrist and Jungian analyst, Dr. Bolen has an acute understanding of what shapes a person, particularly as it relates to one’s sense of balance and wholeness. Based on her knowledge and experience, she guides us to find the truth buried in our own bones.

A tool for help and healing. While encountering sickness is inevitable, healing often seems harder to come by. We are left broken open when life threatening illness hits. While there is no single key to recovery, it is rare to find healing without first addressing the pain. This book serves as a guide to finding purpose in the pain.

Read Close to the Bone and find:

  • An insightful book for anyone living with a life-threatening illness
  • Encouragement for facing illness by relying on the wisdom we all have within
  • A supplemental guide for those who want to form support circles

If books such as Invisible Acts of PowerWhen Things Fall Apart; or No Mud, No Lotus have helped you; then Close to the Bone is the next book you need to read.

Dragged Off

By

A Vietnamese Refugee, a Viral Video, and the United Airlines Scandal That Started It All

“His refusal to give up his seat on a United Airlines flight, and the ensuing assault he suffered, is emblematic of how far we, the people, still have to travel to create a world with liberty and justice for all.” —Marlena Fiol, PhD, globally recognized scholar and speaker and author of Nothing Bad Between Us 

Dr. David Dao was dragged off United Express Flight 3411 on April 9, 2017 after refusing to give up his seat. In the tradition of contemporary immigrant stories comes a personal narrative of the many small but significant acts of racial discrimination faced on the way to the American Dream.

The unseen effects of discrimination. The United Airlines scandal of 2017 garnered over a million views on YouTube. A result of an overbooking overlook, security officials forcibly removed Dr. Dao after refusing to give up his seat. He awoke in the hospital to a concussion, a broken nose, several broken teeth, and worldwide attention. Things aren’t always fair for an immigrant, but according to Dr. Dao, you can prevail if you firmly advocate for yourself.

A response to a lifetime of oppressive acts. Why was Dr. Dao so adamant on his right to a seat? His entire life had led to that moment. A Vietnamese refugee, he fled his home country during the fall of Saigon. He was stranded in the Indian Ocean, immigrated to the United States, enrolled in medical school for a second time, built a practice, and started a family─all the while battling the effects of discrimination and what he had to embrace as a result. This is his story.

If you are moved by immigrant stories, or books like America for AmericansMinor FeelingsHow to Be an Antiracist, or The Making of Asian America, then you’ll want to read Dr. David Dao's story, Dragged Off.

Little Book of Letting Go

By

Let It Go and Find Happiness

“Letting go—particularly of fear—has been my desire and goal for years. With the help of this book, I am finally beginning to do it!” —M. J. Ryan, author of Attitudes of Gratitude

2021 International Book Awards finalist in Spirituality: Inspiration

Life does not have to be as complicated as we often make it. Little Book of Letting Go shows us how to let go of the blocks that interfere with experiencing our natural state of wholeness, joy, and peace.

Let it go and shed what weighs you down. From long-harbored guilt to deep-rooted prejudices, many of us bear the weight of harmful tendencies in our daily lives. Whether we realize it or not, these things are actively holding us back from the happiness we long to attain. In this inspirational book, minister and counselor Hugh Prather provides a guide for mental cleansing. It is only in ridding our minds of the fear and judgments we cling to that we open the door for happiness.

Embrace opportunities as they come. The more we hold on to, the less room we have to take on more. If our minds are clouded by negativity, then we aren’t facing each day with the openness that it deserves. By facing each moment with enthusiasm, we pave the path for positive thinking and make the most out of every opportunity that comes our way.

Practical exercises and lasting tools. Changing how we think takes practice. This is why Prather doesn’t just tell us that it’s important to let go—he shares with us simple steps for how to go about letting go of things that hold us back. Through learning from Prather’s shared experiences and adopting the practices he offers, we can find happiness, peace, and a chance at spiritual renewal.

Inside discover:

  • A simple 3-step process for letting go
  • A 30-day plan for spiritual renewal
  • Personal stories from Prather

The Food Revolution

Plant-Based Diet Benefits You Should Not Ignore

“If every patient in every doctor's office read this book, it would revolutionize the health of America.” —Neal Barnard, MD, president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine

#1 Bestseller in Agriculture & Food Policy, Vegetables, Special Diet, Vegan & Vegetarian, Healthy Living, Personal Health, and Diets & Weight Loss

A book from the over-one-million-copies-sold author who made popular the connections between diet, physical health, animal cruelty, and environmentalism.

A revolution in food-politics. When John Robbins released an early version of this book in 1987, he took the first steps in the food revolution. His insight into the harm caused by America’s eating habits was a wake-up call for many.

Making conscious food choices. It is obvious to us that what we eat affects our bodies, but what we may not realize is that what we eat also affects our world. In fact, most of the foods that are bad for us (think genetically modified products) also negatively impact our environment. By approaching our eating habits with intentionality, we benefit our own health and that of the world we live in.

Plant-based diet benefits. Arguments for a plant-based diet are compelling and backed by over 20 years of work by Robbins focused on the subject of conscious eating. Exposing the dangers in our factory farming system, Robbins makes a definitive case for solely plant-based eating. This timely read on healthy eating will enlighten those curious about plant-based diets and fortify the mindsets of the already converted.

Read The Food Revolution and discover:

  • The negative effects of your current eating habits
  • A powerful case for plant-based eating
  • Wisdom from one of the most frequently cited books of the food-politics revolution

If you have read books such as We are the Weather, How Not to Die, 31-Day Food Revolution, or Fast Food Genocide, then The Food Revolution is a must read!

Stories of those making a difference. While there is still much work to be done to address environmental problems, there are many stories of individuals and organizations rising up to make a change and help save our planet. The words and stories that Bolen weaves throughout this book are both inspirational and down-to-earth, calling us to realize what is happening to not only our trees, but our people.

“…multitasking is, in fact, a lie that actually wastes time, energy, and money. Most of all, it robs us of life and our relationships with others.” —Chuck Norris, world-renowned actor and martial artist 

Through anecdotal and real-world examples, The Myth of Multitasking proves that multitasking hurts your focus and productivity. Instead, learn how to be more effective by doing one thing at a time.

In this revised and updated second edition, author and productivity expert Dave Crenshaw provides a solution for the chaos of distraction that multitasking creates—and a way to combat the temptation to constantly switch between tasks.

Learn how to actually get things done. Dave Crenshaw takes the idea of multitasking as a productivity tool and smashes it to smithereens. But rather than leaving you with the burden of wading through the wreckage all by yourself, he shows you how to focus, move forward, and free up more time for what you value the most.

In this new edition of The Myth of Multitasking, discover:

  • Updated research on how and why multitasking doesn’t work
  • Worksheets to help you figure out how to manage your day effectively
