Survivors often feel alone in their experiences, with emotions that linger long after the trauma is over. As a survivor of incest, Robin Lynn Brooks understands the feelings. In her ground-breaking poetic memoir, The Blooming of the Lotus, she takes you on her deeply personal journey of healing. Traveling into the abyss of her past, exploring the depths of her experiences with brutal incest, violence, and torture, she journeys on her awe-inspiring quest to uncover her authentic self. The book will strike a cord with survivors, lending hope that even the deepest, darkest pit of despair can be opened to the light. "I have heard many accounts of trauma over the years, yet it is rare to come upon one captured so perfectly and expressed with such candor, beauty, and grace. . . Robin's inexhaustible courage, perseverance, and insight through the maze of self-discovery and healing are reflected on every page. She poignantly reveals her deepest vulnerability in an effort to share her story and healing process with other survivors. With great success she conveys that the journey from the darkest imprisonment to the light of freedom is indeed possible. This memoir is Robin's gift to us all." ~AnDréya Wilde, Ph.D.

A journey to awaken the peace and freedom in the inner recesses of the heart and the soul. Amidst the daily grind, and the chaos and uncertainty in the world, it is important that we step back for a while and align ourselves with the truth and beauty in and around us. There is no need for ground - breaking or radical changes; just a small shift in our perspective and consciousness to embrace the basic truths and principles of life and nature. This may very well turn out to be the most effective way to counter the enormous stress and tension of modern living. It is equally important that we become more responsive to the needs of our fellow beings, and resist all forms of oppression, violence, discrimination, racism and the deeply - rooted fanatic spirit.

“Offers a strong incentive for us to get back to the natural world, stay quiet, reflect, and write to connect with a spirit that is larger than ourselves.”—Sheila Bender, author of Keeping a Journal You Love A heartfelt combination of spiritual discovery, environmental observations, and journal writing, The Wise Earth Speaks to Your Spirit offers readers a 52-week cycle of themed essays and related questions about the natural world. Entries on night and sky and parakeets, wind and mud and rain, snakes and tea and thistle, among others. In addition to folklore, myths, stories, and symbols connected to each theme, Janell Moon includes inspirational quotes from well-known writers—among them E. B. White, Ursula K. Le Guin, Gertrude Stein, and Mother Theresa—and shares her original poetry and personal experiences with the natural world. As she writes in the introduction, “It is my wish that through the telling of these stories, and the deepening of your own connections through your writing, that you will better enjoy a rainbow or a tree with angel’s wings in a storm.”

Book 3 in the Fallen Gods series. Priapus, the god of fertility, knows humans on Earth no longer believe in him. Forgotten, abandoned, his name and attributes little more than the whispers of legend, his days of being worshipped are over. When he encounters Thena Cooke-feisty, stubborn and sexy as hell-the urge to make her want to adore him is too strong to ignore. Thena Cooke isn't just another human, though. Her skills in witchcraft are strong, her nature gentle, and her sex appeal more distracting than the strongest spell. But Thena is not a woman who falls at the feet of any man-or god. As powerful as she might be, when she tries to take on demons in her hometown Priapus knows she's in over her head. Now all he has to do is convince her that she needs his help. But more than that, he needs to convince her that she needs him-all of him. And Priapus has a lot to offer-more than any other man could ever give her.

The lotus is the world's most iconic flower. Galvanised by receiving seeds from a three-thousand-year-old lotus, which flowered without difficulty in an English summer, Mark Griffiths set out to track the path of this sublime plant to its home in the Lotus-Lands of Japan. The Lotus Quest unveils a stunning vision of Japan's feudal era, as Griffiths visits shrines, ruins, gardens and wild landscapes, and meets priests and archaeologists, philosophers and anthropologists, gardeners and botanists, poets and artists, and even dines on the lotus in a Tokyo café. Beautifully illustrated, intensely atmospheric and full of suspense, The Lotus Quest shows how the deep crimson of the lotus runs like a tracer dye, tracking the spread, fusion and fission of the world's great civilizations.

In recent years, there has been a growing academic acknowledgment around the world of a contemporary Buddhist phenomenon described as Engaged, or Socially Engaged Buddhism (SEB). It is a contested phenomenon variously associated with finding Buddhist solutions for social, political and ecological problems. The debate about its origins, practice and legitimacy has stirred academics and practitioners alike. Firstly, does such an approach to Buddhist practice constitute a departure with the past, in which case a new expression of an ancient practice is being experienced all around us? Or is this really a continuity of practice, adapted to inform current understanding given that some would describe Buddhism as always having been engaged? Adaptation and Developments in Western Buddhism examines the UK Socially Engaged Buddhist experience captured through a series of five case studies of Buddhist groups and a survey undertaken over two years in the field. The volume is a ground-breaking and benchmark analysis of Socially Engaged Buddhism in the UK, drawing for the first time on evidence from practitioner's experiences with which to characterise the previously dichotomous academic debate. Ultimately, the volume locates Socially Engaged Buddhism in the UK and places it within the broader and global context of an emerging “Western Buddhism”, characterising the phenomenon and its relationships to the wider Buddhist world.

As a teacher of meditation, Andrew Weiss found that students responded best when he broke down the process of mindfulness into discrete and progressive steps. Knowing that most people had little time to devote to meditation, he also made it his priority to teach the direct application of mindfulness to daily life. Through the years, he outlined his simple steps in a series of handouts that form the basis of this book. Intended for laypeople practicing in their work and family lives without the luxury of long meditation retreats, Beginning Mindfulness is deeply rooted in Buddhist practice but remains unbound by any particular Buddhist tradition. Combining teachings from Korean Zen Master Srung Sanh, Vietnamese Zen monk Thich Nhat Hanh, and insight, or vipassana, meditation, Weiss skillfully blends these traditions with Hindu yogic methods to create a meditation manual that is both practical and inspiring.
