The Asian Diet

by Jason Bussell

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. By rebuilding the connections between what is put into the body and how it functions, the diet outlined in this book teaches the daily effects that particular food choices will have-on bodyweight, energy, mood, and the quality and duration of life-and that ultimately all foods are good in the right proportion. 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.

by James Twyman

The Art of Spiritual Peacemaking is a collection of sacred wisdom inspired by an encounter between James Twyman and Jeshua ben Joseph, also known as Jesus, at Israel's Dead Sea in 2003. The lessons are said to be the inner teachings Jeshua offered to his closest disciples 2,000 years ago, revealing secrets of living in the world as illumined beings.

Emissary of Light

by James Twyman

Traveling in 1995 around war-torn Bosnia and Croatia, where he had gone to stage a peace concert, this author encountered The Emissaries: a small group of mystics who meditated 12 hours a day. He went on to detail their message-that humanity was now ready to create a new world-in a book that was translated into more than a dozen languages. This new edition provides behind-the-scenes information about the people met on that trip and offers additional commentary on the monks' compelling mystic vision.

11 Days at the Edge

by Michael Wombacher

Revolutionary idealist and vocal cultural critic Andrew Cohen promotes a new spiritual paradigm in this exploration of a true visionary's controversial school of thought. Though Cohen was once a teacher of personal enlightenment, he now quests for a joint spiritual longing and humanitarian love-two forces that enable and empower each other to the point where enlightenment becomes evolution. Uncompromising in his call for human transformation, Cohen is presented as an illustrious spiritual figure whose liberated consciousness and ruthless deconstruction of the culture around him have kept everyone talking; in 2004, he was invited to address the Parliament of World Religions, an unusual honor for a man buoyed by no established spiritual tradition and unyielding in his demand for integrity.

Healing Plants and Animals from a Distance

by Jim Pathfinder Ewing

Using simple rituals-whose roots draw from shamanism, spirituality, religion, Native American studies, vibrational energy, and alternative medicine-becoming conscious of healing abilities is possible. This manual demonstrates not only how to gain the knowledge and wisdom afforded by various spirit beings, guides, and helpers, but also how to apply this knowledge in the natural world. Key diagnostic methods address specific ways to talk with plants and animals, understand what they say and how they say it, and how harmony, healing, and wholeness may be attained in both urban and rural settings. Visualization, prayer, and other techniques for accessing the vibration rates and consciousness of living things are also explored.

Finding Sanctuary in Nature

by Jim Pathfinder Ewing

These spiritual lessons are based on Native American shamanism but fit a wide range of interests from yoga and alternative medicine to Bible study and nature hiking. Hands-on exercises, step-by-step instructions for ceremonies, and sketches by the author's wife explain how to clear spaces of unwanted energy, create simple ceremonies, connect with spirit guides and angels, and interpret symbols. An extended discussion tells how to make a medicine wheel that resembles a labyrinth and use it as an engine for distance healing. Additional ceremonies for daily living, healing the earth, and soul retrieval are also described, and the spiritual quest itself is shown to follow the process of choosing a sacred place in nature, finding a sacred place within oneself, and connecting to the inner and outer worlds. Readers are encouraged to keep a notebook about their spiritual growth and refer to the key words and suggestions for internet research that are included.

Clearing

by Jim Pathfinder Ewing

Combining timeless traditions with the author's vast experience in energy transformation, this manual offers step-by-step guidance for recognizing and manipulating the unseen forces that affect everyday life. Real-life examples, guided exercises, annotated endnotes, and an extensive glossary to supplement case studies making the book both informative and accessible for practical use.

The Stonehenge Letters

by Harry Karlinsky

While digging through the Nobel Archives in Stockholm, trying to figure out why his hero, Sigmund Freud, never received a Nobel Prize, a psychiatrist makes an unusual discovery. Among the unsolicited self-nominations in the museum's 'Crackpot' file, there are six letters addressed to Mr. Ragnar Sohlman, executor of Alfred Nobel's will. Remarkably, all but one is crafted by a different Nobel laureate - including Rudyard Kipling, Ivan Pavlov, Teddy Roosevelt and Marie Curie - and each is an explanation of why and how Stonehenge was constructed. Diligent research eventually uncovers that Alfred Nobel, intrigued by a young woman's obsession with the mysterious landmark, added a secret codicil to his will: 'a prize - reserved exclusively for Nobel laureates - was to be awarded to the person who solves the mystery of Stonehenge.' But is this fact or is this fiction? Weaving together a wealth of primary documents - photos, letters, wills - The Stonehenge Letters acts as a wryly documented archive of a fascinating secret competition, complete with strange but illuminating submissions and a contentious prize-awarding process.

Roots-Thirtieth Anniversary Edition

by Alex Haley

One of the most important books and television series ever to appear, Roots, galvanized the nation, and created an extraordinary political, racial, social and cultural dialogue that hadn't been seen since the publication of Uncle Tom's Cabin. The book sold over one million copies in the first year, and the miniseries was watched by an astonishing 130 million people. It also won both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. Roots opened up the minds of Americans of all colors and faiths to one of the darkest and most painful parts of America's past. Over the years, both Roots and Alex Haley have attracted controversy, which comes with the territory for trailblazing, iconic books, particularly on the topic of race. Some of the criticism results from whether Roots is fact or fiction and whether Alex Haley confused these two issues, a subject he addresses directly in the book. There is also the fact that Haley was sued for plagiarism when it was discovered that several dozen paragraphs in Roots were taken directly from a novel, The African, by Harold Courlander, who ultimately received a substantial financial settlement at the end of the case. But none of the controversy affects the basic issue. Roots fostered a remarkable dialogue about not just the past, but the then present day 1970s and how America had fared since the days portrayed in Roots. Vanguard Press feels that it is important to publish Roots: The 30th Anniversary Edition to remind the generation that originally read it that there are issues that still need to be discussed and debated, and to introduce to a new and younger generation, a book that will help them understand, perhaps for the first time, the reality of what took place during the time of Roots.

The Heist Film

by Daryl Lee

A concise introduction to the genre about that one last big score, The Heist Film: Stealing With Style traces this crime thriller's development as both a dramatic and comic vehicle growing out of film noir ( Criss Cross, The Killers, The Asphalt Jungle), mutating into sleek capers in the 1960s ( Ocean's Eleven, Gambit, How to Steal a Million) and splashing across screens in the 2000s in remake after remake ( The Thomas Crown Affair, The Italian Job, The Good Thief). Built around a series of case studies ( Rififi, Bob le Flambeur, The Killing, The Lavender Hill Mob, The Getaway, the Ocean's trilogy), this volume explores why directors of such varied backgrounds, from studio regulars (Siodmak, Crichton, Siegel, Walsh and Wise) to independents (Anderson, Fuller, Kubrick, Ritchie and Soderbergh), are so drawn to this popular genre.

Beyond News

by Mitchell Stephens

For a century and a half, journalists made a good business out of selling the latest news or selling ads next to that news. Now that news pours out of the Internet and our mobile devices -- fast, abundant, and mostly free -- that era is ending. Our best journalists, Mitchell Stephens argues, instead must offer original, challenging perspectives -- not just slightly more thorough accounts of widely reported events. His book proposes a new standard: "wisdom journalism," an amalgam of the more rarified forms of reporting -- exclusive, enterprising, investigative -- and informed, insightful, interpretive, explanatory, even opinionated takes on current events.This book features an original, sometimes critical examination of contemporary journalism, both on- and offline. And it finds inspiration for a more ambitious and effective understanding of journalism in examples from twenty-first-century articles and blogs, as well as in a selection of outstanding twentieth-century journalism and Benjamin Franklin's eighteenth-century writings. Most attempts to deal with journalism's current crisis emphasize technology. This book emphasizes mindsets and the need to rethink what journalism has been and might become.

Unearthing the Changes

by Edward L. Shaughnessy

In recent years, three ancient manuscripts relating to the Yi jing ( I Ching), or Classic of Changes, have been dixcovered. The earliest -- the Shanghai Museum Zhou Yi -- dates to about 300 B.C.E. and shows evidence of the text's original circulation. The Gui cang, or Returning to Be Treasured, reflects another ancient Chinese divination tradition based on hexagrams similar to those of the Yi jing. In 1993, two manuscripts found in a third-century B.C.E. tomb at Wangjiatai contained almost exact parallels to the Gui cang's early quotations, supplying new information on the performance of early Chinese divination. Finally, the Fuyang Zhou Yi was excavated from the tomb of Xia Hou Zao, lord of Ruyin, who died in 165 B.C.E. Each line of this classic is followed by one or more generic prognostications similar to phrases found in the Yi jing, indicating exciting new ways in which the text was produced and used in the interpretation of divinations.This book details the discovery and significance of the Shanghai Museum Zhou Yi, the Wangjiatai Gui cang, and the Fuyang Zhou Yi, including full translations of the texts and additional evidence that constructs a new narrative of the Yi jing's writing and transmission in the first millennium B.C.E.

The Cinema of Werner Herzog

by Kirsten Moana Thompson

Werner Herzog is renowned for pushing the boundaries of conventional cinema, especially those between the fictional and the factual, the fantastic and the real. The Cinema of Werner Herzog: Aesthetic Ecstasy and Truth is the first study in twenty years devoted entirely to an analysis of Herzog's work. It explores the director's continuing search for what he has described as 'ecstatic truth,' drawing on over thirty-five films, from the epics Aguirre: Wrath of God (1972) and Fitzcarraldo (1982) to innovative documentaries like Fata Morgana (1971), Lessons of Darkness (1992), and Grizzly Man (2005). Special attention is paid to Herzog's signature style of cinematic composition, his "romantic" influences, and his fascination with madmen, colonialism, and war.
