Emerge!: The Rise of Functional Democracy and the Future of the Middle East

by Elza S. Maalouf Don E. Beck

In the Middle East, turmoil has spread quickly. Oppression, inequality, and violence have been keyed in to the very makeup of its society. But what causes a culture to emerge and prosper or stagnate and fail? How can the people take charge of their own inalienable rights to growth, freedom, and life-to keep from backsliding into the grasp of old, unhealthy ideologies? In Elza Maalouf's groundbreaking new book Emerge! The Rise of Functional Democracy in the Middle East, we are introduced to a new paradigm for governance based on Clare Graves' theory of Spiral Dynamics. Where the West's approach has failed due to lack of memetic understanding, Maalouf's succeeds by placing democracy in an evolutionary, values-system context specific to unique, Middle Eastern characteristics. Not only does Emerge ask us to seek understanding before we structure and create, it shows us the necessity of teaching our youth to build their own sustainable, indigenous constructs.

Story-Based Selling: Create, Connect, and Close

by Jeff Bloomfield

As a founder of a successful organization that trains and develops sales professionals, Jeff Bloomfield has given a lot of thought to why customers say yes. In Story-Based Selling: Create, Connect, and Close, Mr. Bloomfield says it's really no mystery. People buy from people they trust. They trust people they like, and they like people they connect to. And he believes that storytelling is the best way for salespeople-and all of us-to immediately connect to a customer's feelings of trust and liking. He thinks teaching sales professionals to close a deal by presenting their product, probing its mutual benefits, and overcoming the customer's objections and skepticism, is a waste of time. Instead, he urges them to tell a great story. Mr. Bloomfield calls upon the latest research in neuroscience to explain the process of communication. The truth is that during the salesperson's engagement with clients, people quickly base their decisions on how they feel, not the way they think, so trying to persuade someone by first imparting lifeless facts and figures is self-defeating. In fact, this information goes right to an area of the listener's brain (the left brain) that drives doubt and skepticism. To make a deal we need to connect with the parts of the customer's brain that inspire emotions of trust and empathy. By telling a story, we can immediately connect to these good gut feelings and drive away the client's fear of being sold. Mr. Bloomfield tells his own engaging stories while teaching step-by-step techniques of intentional storytelling-to create a fast connection with the listener, no matter who is buying or what a person wants to sell.

The Buddha from Babylon: The Lost History and Cosmic Vision of Siddhartha Gautama

by Harvey Kraft

The sudden death of the Persian Emperor in 522 BCE is one of history's great mysteries. Was his demise self-inflicted, accidental, an assassination or due to natural causes? The author contends that during this incident Siddhartha Gautama may have been the leader of Babylon's Magi, an interfaith order that assumes governance of the region. The situation explodes when Darius the Great seizes the throne. Simultaneously the Magi Order is purged as Siddhartha, prince of the Saka nation, heads back east to the Indus. Could this event have inspired the creation of Buddhism as a pacifist movement dedicated to the pursuit of self-transformation, goodwill, and universal compassion? The Buddha from Babylon: The Lost History and Cosmic Vision of Siddhartha Gautama uncovers new evidence that solves this ages-old mystery and discovers Babylonian influences in the Buddha's revelations.

Epigenetics: The Death of the Genetic Theory of Disease Transmission

by Gerhard N. Schrauzer Jeffrey S. Bland Ma Lan Joel D. Wallach

WHAT IS EPIGENETICS? Epigenetics is an emerging field of science that studies alterations in gene expression caused by factors other than changes in the DNA sequence.

Dr. Joel "Doc" Wallach has dedicated his life work to identifying connections between certain nutritional deficiencies and a range of maladies, formerly thought to be hereditary, including Cystic Fibrosis and Muscular Dystrophy. This nexus between nutrition and so-called genetic disease has been observed in both humans and primates, and it is the central theme of Epigenetics. To bring us Epigenetics, Wallach has teamed with noted scholars Dr. Ma Lan and Dr. Gerhard N. Schrauzer. Their collective expertise gives this book its far reaching perspective. Epigenetics is of vital importance to anyone who wants real knowledge about how the human body functions, and it provides a path for better health. Epigentics dispels the dogma and misinformation propagated by medical institutions and doctors resistant to change. Epigenetics is the beginning of a new era of well-being on this planet.

Evolution's Purpose: An Integral Interpretation of the Scientific Story of Our Origins

by Steve Mcintosh

Does the science of evolution really prove that life, humanity, and the universe as a whole are meaningless accidents? On the contrary, as science has shown how everything in the universe is subject to evolution, including matter, life, and human culture, these very facts reveal that the process of evolution is unmistakably progressive. And, as Steve McIntosh demonstrates, when we come to see how evolution progresses, this reveals evolution's purpose-to grow toward ever-widening realizations of beauty, truth, and goodness. McIntosh argues that the purpose of evolution is not intelligently designed or otherwise externally controlled; rather, its purpose is being creatively and originally discerned through the choices of the evolutionary creatures themselves. Without relying on spiritual authorities, the author shows how the scientific story of our origins is actually a profound and sacred teaching compatible with many forms of contemporary spirituality. Evolution's Purpose: An Integral Interpretation of the Scientific Story of Our Origins presents a fresh and compelling view of evolutionary science and philosophy, and shows how a deeper understanding of evolution itself can lead directly to a more evolved world.
