Coming Into Your Own

by Barbara Cecil

Google references 94,000,000 hits dealing with "Women in Life Transitions." What if the throes of change provide access to one's innate calling? Author Barbara Cecil's experience with thousands of women says that this is so, and that these women want help to align themselves with an inner truth. Coming Into Your Own: A Woman's Guide Through Life Transitions helps organize the chaos inherent in change. It gives readers a path that is rightly their own. Personal stories from women around the world give hope.Coming Into Your Own describes the inherent "field of possibility" that lives just under the storylines of our lives. This invisible field contains the potential that is uniquely our own. The book also outlines specific, universal phases of transition in what Cecil has named the "Wheel of Change." She calls these phases "Dwelling Places" because we must dwell in each one for as long as it takes to fulfill the promise of that stage. Identifying where we are on this map is greatly relieving. Once we know where we are, we understand how to make contact with the underlying field of possibility that will, in turn, inform our choices and give meaning to our lives.

Coming to Mind: The Soul and Its Body

by D. Gregory Caramenico Lenn E. Goodman

How should we speak of bodies and souls? In "Coming to Mind," Lenn E. Goodman and D. Gregory Caramenico pick their way through the minefields of materialist reductionism to present the soul not as the brainOCOs rival but as its partner. What acts, they argue, is what is real. The soul is not an ethereal wisp but a lively subject, emergent from the body but inadequately described in its terms. Rooted in some of the richest philosophical and intellectual traditions of Western and Eastern philosophy, psychology, literature, and the arts and the latest findings of cognitive psychology and brain scienceOCo"Coming to Mind" is a subtle manifesto of a new humanism and an outstanding contribution to our understanding of the human person. Drawing on new and classical understandings of perception, consciousness, memory, agency, and creativity, Goodman and Caramenico frame a convincing argument for a dynamic and integrated self capable of language, thought, discovery, caring, and love.

Commit to Win

by Heidi Reeder

What do you need besides motivation and willpower? In Commit to Win, Heidi Reeder, PhD, unpacks over forty years of research by psychologists and economists to show that the key to reaching any goal, whether it's to hit the gym more often or to finally quit that dead-end job, isn't motivation, willpower, or determination. It's commitment. Busting the myths most of us believe about commitment, Reeder shows that it all comes down to four variables: Treasures: the benefits we get from working toward a goal, Troubles: the difficulties we have to deal with, Contributions: the time, money, and effort we invest, and Choices: the number of good alternatives we have. Together, these variables make up a formula that not only measures how committed we are, but also shows which factors we can change to get our commitment level in sync with what we want to do. Packed with practical examples and action plans for a variety of situations, Commit to Win will allow readers to stop wishing for things to be different and instead make practical changes that will naturally empower them to reach their goals. It will appeal to readers of Succeed and The Willpower Instinct.
