A Way of Being was written in the early 1980s, near the end of Carl Rogers's career, and serves as a coda to his classic On Becoming a Person. More personal and philosophical than his earlier writings, it traces his professional and personal development and ends with a person-centered prophecy, in which he predicts a future changing in the direction of more humaneness. Now, fifteen years later, the psychiatrist and best-selling author Dr. Irvin Yalom revisits A Way of Being, offering a contemporary view of this remarkable work.

In Learning as a Way of Being, Vaill offers a thoughtful critique of the roots of management education and argues that, if managers are to navigate the waters skillfully, insitutions of "higher learning" must, above all, teach managers how to integrate the discipline of learning into their very being. Such learning must be marked by strong self-direction, willingness to taker isks, and integration of the learning that life teaches outside the classroom.

The contemplative approach to life, care, and counseling demands a daily call to surrender the underlying attitude of meritocracy that heavily emphasizes good works to produce successful results in counseling. At a fundamental level, the contemplative counselor exhibits an unwavering reliance on the grace of God, which transforms all that is descriptive of the counseling encounter.--From publisher description.

In this careful examination of the nature of writing, Robert Yagelski demonstrates that the experience of writing, apart from the text that is produced through writing, can be deeply transformative for both individuals and communities. Writing as a Way of Being presents a dramatic new way to understand writing as an ontological act at a time of unprecedented social, educational, and environmental change. This book offers hope in the form of a pedagogy of writing as an ethical practice of being in the world. It describes a way to harness the power of writing so that writing instruction can become part of a broader effort to imagine and create a more just and sustainable future.

The Reality Of Being

As the closest pupil of the charismatic spiritual master G. I. Gurdjieff (1866–1949), Jeanne de Salzmann was charged with carrying on his teachings of spiritual transforma­tion. Known as the Fourth Way or "the Work", Gurdjieff's sys­tem was based on teachings of the East that he adapted for modern life in the West. Now, some twenty years after De Salz­mann's death, the notebooks that she filled with her insights over a forty-year period (and intended to publish) have been translated and edited by a small group of her family and follow­ers. The result is this long-awaited guide to Gurdjieff's teach­ing, describing the routes to be travelled and the landmarks encountered along the way. Organized according to themes, the chapters touch on all the important concepts and practices of the Work, including:? awakening from the sleep of identification with the ordinary level of being ? self-observation and self-remembering ? conscious effort and voluntary suffering ? understanding symbolic concepts like the Enneagram ? the Gurdjieff Movements, bodily exercises that provide training in Presence and the awareness of subtle energies ? the necessity of a "school," meaning the collective practice of the teaching in a group. Madame de Salzmann brings to the Work her own strong, direct language and personal journey in learning to live that knowledge of a higher level of being, which, she insists, "you have to see for yourself" on a level beyond theory and concept. De Salzmann consistently refused to discuss the teaching in terms of ideas, for this Fourth Way is to be experienced, not simply thought or believed.

Contemplative Aging

Author : Edmund Sherman

Contemplative Aging is for men and women age 60 and beyond who want to experience a more peaceful, aware way of being through contemplative practices and transcend the many causes of suffering inherent in later life. It presents a way of being that has received little attention in most popular and professional books on aging, yet adds a different and deeper dimension to complement and strengthen the active, healthy older age promoted in the popular media. Contemplative Aging also provides a contemplative way of dealing with the and transcending many of the physical decrements and emotional losses of loved ones that are so much a part of later life. Extensive research evidence exists for achieving such a way of life – called “gerotranscendence” – which is clearly described in Contemplative Aging along with the psychological and philosophical foundations and practices that can lead to the existential and spiritual benefits of gerotranscendence. Based on the author’s ongoing work with older adults and the timeless literature on contemplative traditions throughout the world – expressed by poets, psychologists, philosophers, mystics, and rationalists – Dr. Sherman presents a range of contemplative practice methods and exercises designed for individuals already 60 years or older and the millions of “baby boomers” about to enter their later years of life.
