The Second Half of Life.
Working with images,
poetry, metaphors, and other forms of symbolic
language from diverse world cultures, Dr. Arrien
introduces us to the Eight Gates of Initiation.
By mastering their lessons and gifts, you harvest
the meaning and purpose of your life, and come
into spiritual maturity.
With The Second Half
of Life, she takes you step-by-step through each
gate to deepen your most valuable relationships,
reclaim your untended creative talents, and shift
your focus from ambition to meaning to grow into
the exceptional elder you've always imagined you
would one day become.
How do you cope when facing life-threatening
illness, family conflict, faltering relationships,
old trauma, obsessive thinking, overwhelming emotion,
or inevitable loss? If you're like most people,
chances are you react with fear and confusion,
falling back on timeworn strategies: anger, self-judgment,
and addictive behaviors. Though these old, conditioned
attempts to control our life may offer fleeting
relief, ultimately they leave us feeling isolated
and mired in pain.
There "is" another way. Beneath the
turbulence of our thoughts and emotions exists
a profound stillness, a silent awareness capable
of limitless love. Tara Brach, author of the award-winning
"Radical Acceptance, "calls this awareness
our true refuge, because it is available to every
one of us, at any moment, no exceptions. In this
book, Brach offers a practical guide to finding
our inner sanctuary of peace and wisdom in the
midst of difficulty.
Based on a fresh interpretation of the three classic
Buddhist gateways to freedom--truth, love, and
awareness--"True Refuge" shows us the
way not just to heal our suffering, but also to
cultivate our capacity for genuine happiness.
Through spiritual teachings, guided meditations,
and inspirational stories of people who discovered
loving presence during times of great struggle,
Brach invites us to connect more deeply with our
own inner life, one another, and the world around
Why is there more chance we'll believe
something if it's in a bold type face? Why are
judges more likely to deny parole before lunch?
Why do we assume a good-looking person will be
more competent? The answer lies in the two ways
we make choices: fast, intuitive thinking, and
slow, rational thinking.
This book reveals how our minds
are tripped up by error and prejudice (even when
we think we are being logical), and gives you
practical techniques for slower, smarter thinking.
It will enable to you make better decisions at
work, at home, and in everything you do.
'There may be no other person on
the planet who better understands how and why
we make the choices we make. This absolutely amazing
book is a must read for anyone with a curious
mind' Steven D. Levitt, co-author of Freakonomics
'A masterpiece . . . compulsively readable . .

Alexander wakes seven days later, and recovers
all his functions. More than this, he is
able to recall, in a profound and detailed
way, an extraordinary afterlife experience;
remember, he has been pronounced incapable

A true story, leaving his
family in South Africa in 1972, Shimon travels
to Israel. He plans to learn the language,
sleep with as many gorgeous girls as possible,
join the army, and live for the day. But
a chance encounter with a beguiling woman
on the bus impacts his future far more than
he could have imagined.
Shimon understands that at this time in
history, as long as there are terrorists,
Israel will never sleep in peace; it is
a nation always fighting for survival. Fit
and fast, he earns high praise from his
superiors in the army; his personality and
skills make him a perfect candidate for
becoming an agent with the Shin Bet Israel's
Security Agency, a position where life and
death situations are routine.
Telling a tale of action, adventure, deception,
and romance, The Apple Orchard follows Shimon
as he works covertly with Shin Bet to protect
the religiousfreedoms in the Holy Land of
Israel. The enemy fears Shimon and women
lovehim, but his love for his country is
the greatest love affair of them all.
4000 years ago, women were
considered living representatives of the
Great Mother whose cyclical and potent energy
gave birth to all existence.
Today, this sacred awareness
has been lost or distorted, causing a collective
amnesia among women around the world.
However, a woman's physical
body is the one constant over millennia
reminding women of their sacred gifts of
fertility and transformation, giving birth
to new levels of consciousness essential
for humanity at this time.
