Biology, physiology, and physics combine with ancient traditions to explore the science of enlightenment-the interconnectedness of humanity and nature through the oneness of light-in this practical, spiritual guidebook. Written by a medical doctor who has embraced the spiritual side of healing, this analysis escorts readers on a journey through the light of DNA and physiological processes and connects this light to the Earth and the sun. Simple exercises show how to absorb, share, and hold the light, illustrating that manifesting its oneness will connect humans with each other as well as with nature. Touching on several aspects of healing-including chakras, Chinese meridians, earth and body energies, and Qi Gong-this part-medical, part-metaphysical guide illustrates that the science of enlightenment leads to personal and global well-being.
Especially oriented toward women looking for a fresh start, this dynamic exploration draws on clinical research to assist in taking charge of life. Rather than reacting to what life serves and hiding from it, this method shows how to access sources of courage and power to overcome personal, familial, and societal obstacles.

Applicable to real-life situations and timely in light of today's spiritual and economic challenges, this approach offers self-clarity without being bogged down in the trappings of religious dogma.
Inspiring and interactive, this manual demonstrates how to effortlessly release negative belief patterns and to respond positively to any situation by following the guidance of Ascended Master, Saint Germain. Providing the tools to connect to higher frequencies, this handbook encourages that individuals seeking spiritual enlightenment breathe, feel, and allow the energy of Saint Germain into their beings in order to realize his teachings. This remarkable meditation argues that integration and self-transformation can occur not only through the mind but also through the heart itself.
Bringing to light an extreme fundamentalist Christian view, this insider's perspective offers hope to people grappling with the aftereffects of a cult-like movement often known as "Reparative Therapy." The movement assumes that going from gay to straight is easily changeable and change-worthy, despite decades of psycho/sexual research to the contrary. Although it did not succeed in making the author-a Southern Baptist who attended an ex-gay ministry at a young age-straight, it did undermine his self-esteem and confuse him significantly, thus leading him to pursue an advanced degree in sexology in order to help others in similar positions. Offering a detailed comparison of the ex-gay world and the phenomenon known as Religious Abuse, this manual shares a personal journey through the hopeless mistreatment and manipulative system of ex-gay ministries and the recovery process involved in regaining strength, acceptance, and self-worth.

Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869-1935) a three-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize, was the first of the great American modernist poets."No poet ever understood loneliness and separateness better than Robinson," James Dickey has observed. Robinson's lyric poems illuminate the hearts and minds of the most unlikely subjects--the downtrodden, the bereft, and the misunderstood. Even while writing in meter and rhyme, he used everyday language with unprecedented power, wit, and sensitivity. With his keen understanding of ordinary people and a gift for harnessing the rhythms of conversational speech, Robinson created the vivid character portraits for which he is best known, among them "Aunt Imogen," "Isaac and Archibald," "Miniver Cheevy," and "Richard Cory." Most of his poems are set in the fictive Tilbury Town--based on his boyhood home of Gardiner, Maine--but his work reaches far beyond its particular locality in its focus on struggle and redemption in human experience.
(Book Jacket Status: Jacketed) These three brilliantly wrought, tragic novellas explore the repressed emotions and destructive passions of working-class people far removed from the social milieu usually inhabited by Edith Wharton's characters. Ethan Frome is one of Wharton's most famous works; it is a tightly constructed and almost unbearably heartbreaking story of forbidden love in a snowbound New England village. Summer, also set in rural New England, is often considered a companion to Ethan Frome-Wharton herself called it "the hot Ethan"-in its portrayal of a young woman's sexual and social awakening. Bunner Sisters takes place in the narrow, dusty streets of late nineteenth-century New York City, where the constrained but peaceful lives of two spinster shopkeepers are shattered when they meet a man who becomes the unworthy focus of all their pent-up hopes. All three of these novellas feature realistic and haunting characters as vivid as any Wharton ever conjured, and together they provide a superb introduction to the shorter fiction of one of our greatest writers.
He vowed to wed, bed, and abandon her. But love got in the way... Joan Johnston sweeps you back to Regency-era England and Scotland with a love story that will take your breath away. Here is romance at its best as Johnston brings back unforgettable characters from her bestsellers, Captive, After the Kiss, and The Bodyguard in a spellbinding novel of seduction and betrayal. She was the reigning belle of the ton for the fourth Season in a row, but Lady Regina Wharton, the Duke of Blackthorne's daughter, was determined to avoid the perils of marriage. She had already seen enough to distrust all men. Then Clay Bannister, the dashing Earl of Carlisle, dared to steal a kiss and stir new and exciting desires. Scarred by tragedy, Carlisle intrigued her with his mysterious past and his dark, dangerous charm. She never suspected she was about to marry her father's most vengeful enemy--or that her greatest defense would be the passions he could not resist. ...
She was a gorgeous rebel. Defying all the rules, daring to speak her mind, Charlotte Edgerton declared her independence before she even entered the Earl of Denbigh's home. Her new guardian immediately made her a prisoner in her own room--until she agreed to learn the lady-like arts. Furious, she complied. Anything to buy her freedom from Denbigh. She's even marry a man she didn't love to get away from her domineering guardian. In fact, love was the furthest thing from her mind... He was the Earl who vowed to tame her. Lionel Morgan, Earl of Denbigh, had been betrayed at the altar by another woman and vowed that no female would ensnare him again. Then Charlotte Edgerton burst into his life. Denbigh wasn't prepared for this headstrong American--or the passions she inspired on first sight. He knew only that he had to civilize her, present her at court, and Almack's, and then marry her off to the highest bidder. It wasn't until he nearly lost her that he realized the truth: She'd somehow reversed their roles and become the captor of his heart.
Sworn to protect her, he was forbidden to touch her. ... Joan Johnston is a masterful creator of unforgettable characters and stories that make you feel as if you're falling in love again. Now she sweeps you back to Regency-era Scotland, where a determined young woman challenges a man's world--even as she embraces the outsider who protects her life and steals her heart .... When the tall, rugged stranger stepped out of the shadows and rescued her from a fate worse than death, Katherine MacKinnon knew she had found her bodyguard. With his steely arms and reckless courage, he would shield her from her clansmen, who refused to accept her as laird, and from the hated Duke of Blackthorne, who controlled her family's lands. As her desire grew for the mysterious man who was constantly by her side, she had no idea that she was falling in love with the enemy himself. ...
The Innocent: Too tall and entirely too outspoken, Miss Eliza Sheringham grew up thumbing her nose at polite English society. So when Captain Lord Marcus Wharton, called Beau for his stunning good looks, set his rakish sights on her, Eliza thought nothing of rejecting his advances. Until a stolen kiss swept her into the arms of a man too dangerous too love.... The Beau: Called to battle, Marcus left behind the woman who had captured his heart--and the scandal ignited by their kiss. His brother's disappearance made him Duke of Blackthorne, guardian of twin nieces who were rumored to be his own daughters. Badly scared in battle, the Beau had become the Beast of Blackthorne, a wounded animal destined to spend his life hiding in a shadowy wing of Blackthorne Abbey. The Beast: When Eliza Sheringham showed up on his doorstep proposing herself as governess for the incorrigible twins, the Beast demanded marriage as the price of the job. He knew she could never love him. Surely his looks would drive her away--now that he hungered for her more than life itself. ...
From Chapter One:This book . . . begins with the ecosphere, the setting in which civilization has done its great--and terrible--deeds. Then it moves to a description of some of the damage we have done to the ecosphere--to the air, the water, the soil. However, by now such horror stories of environmental destruction are familiar, even tiresome. Much less clear is what we need to learn from them, and so I have chosen less to shed tears for our past mistakes than to try to understand them. Most of this book is an effort to discover which human acts have broken the circle of life, and why. I trace the environmental crisis from its overt manifestations in the ecosphere to the ecological stresses which they reflect, to the faults in productive technology--and in its scientific background--that generate these stresses, and finally to the economic, social, and political forces which have driven us down this self-destructive course. All this in the hope--and expectation--that once we understand the origins of the environmental crisis, we can begin to manage the huge undertaking of surviving it.
Imagine a hot zone in which Ebola is being spliced--using the latest techniques of genetic engineering--with smallpox, the most infectious disease known to man. Now imagine that cocktail is meant for you. For fifty years, while the world stood in terror of a nuclear war, Russian scientists hidden in heavily guarded secret cities refined and stockpiled a new kind of weapon of mass destruction--an invisible weapon that would strike in silence and could not be traced. It would leave hundreds of thousands dead in its wake and would continue to spread devastation long after its release. The scientists were bioweaponeers, working to perfect the tools of a biological Armageddon. They called it their Manhattan Project. It was the deadliest and darkest secret of the cold war. What you are about to read has never before been made public. Ken Alibek began his career as a doctor wanting to save lives and ended up running the Soviet biological weapons program--a secret military empire masquerading as a pharmaceutical company. At its peak, the program employed sixty thousand people at over one hundred facilities. Seven reserve mobilization plants were on permanent standby, ready to produce hundreds of tons of plague, anthrax, smallpox, and Venezuelan equine encephalitis, to name only a few of the toxic agents bred in Soviet labs. Almost every government ministry was implicated, including the Academy of Sciences and the KGB. Biohazard is a terrifying, fast-paced account of tests and leaks, accidents and disasters in the labs, KGB threats and assassinations. The book is full of revelations--evidence of biowarfare programs in Cuba and India, actual deployments at Stalingrad and in Afghanistan, experiments with mood-altering agents, a contingency plan to attack major American cities, and the true story behind the mysterious anthrax outbreak in Sverdlovsk. But beyond these is a twisted world of lies and mirrors, and the riveting parable of the greatest perversion of science in history. No one knows the actual capabilities of biological weapons better than Dr. Alibek. Many of the scientists who worked with him have been lured away from low-paying Russian labs to rogue regimes and terrorist groups around the world. In our lifetime, we will most likely see a terrorist attack using biological weapons on an American city. Biohazard tells us--in chilling detail--what to expect and what we can do. Not since Arthur Koestler's Darkness at Noon has there been such a book--a report from inside the belly of the beast.Praise for Biohazard "Harrowing . . . richly descriptive . . . [an] absorbing account."--The New York Times Book Review "Remarkable . . . terrifying revelations . . . [Ken Alibek's] overall message is ignored at great national peril."--Newsday "Read and be amazed. . . . An important and fascinating look into a terrifying world of which we were blissfully unaware."--Robin Cook, author of ContagionFrom the Hardcover edition.
In this era of fad diets, detox programs, and "superfoods," this examination of the relationship between diet and lifestyle looks to the Far East to claim that the simple principles to live by are balance and moderation.

All major food groups are covered, with additional sections on dietary supplements, lifestyle, and attitude, plus a handful of recipes to demonstrate the principles of the diet.
