“Nature deficit disorder” has become an increasingly challenging problem in our hypermodern world. In Awake in the Wild, Mark Coleman shows seekers how to remedy this widespread malady by reconnecting with nature through Buddhism. Each short (two to three pages) chapter includes a concrete nature meditation relating to such topics as Attuning to the Natural World, Reflecting the Rhythms of Nature, Walking with Compassion, Releasing the Inner Noise, Freeing the Animal Within, Coming into the Peace of Wild Things, Weathering the Storms of Life, and more. Incorporating anecdotes from the author’s many nature retreats, Buddhist wisdom and teachings, important nature writings by others, and nature itself, the book invites readers to participate in, not just observe, nature; develop a loving connection with the earth as a form of environmental activism; decrease urban alienation through experiencing nature; embody nature’s peaceful presence; and connect with ancient spiritual wisdom through nature meditations.

Let this beautifully illustrated journal guide you through the seasons of your year and record your thoughts and reflections. This keepsake journal will allow you record your thoughts as the season pass and prompt you to notice the nuances and beauty of the seasons. This guided journal is divided into spring, summer, fall, and winter. Each season will feature passages connected to what is occurring in nature questions to spur self-reflection, and space to record your thoughts . Spring, for example, represents renewal with quotes and passages about starting anew. This connects the new, fresh leaves and flowers with a restart in your own life. Summer focuses on exuberance and simplicity. Here, you can reflect on the bright, bold moments in your life and enjoy the simple pleasures of summer. Fall exemplifies rethinking and self-improvement, featuring ways to reflect on what you have learned and how you can grow as a person both spiritually and intellectually. Winter focuses on hibernation and finding quiet peace. As in the natural world, taking a break and finding peace is important to happiness and calm. Awake in the Wild features the magical, fairy-tale-like illustrations of Romanian artist Madalina Andronic.

The inner critic is the voice inside our heads reminding us that we are never “good enough.” It’s behind the insidious thoughts that can make us second-guess our every action and doubt our own value. The inner critic might feel overpowering, but it can be managed effectively. Meditation teacher and therapist Mark Coleman helps readers understand and free themselves from the inner critic using the tools of mindfulness and compassion. Each chapter offers constructive insights into what creates, drives, and disarms the critic; real people’s journeys to inspire and guide readers; and simple practices anyone can use to live a free, happy, and flourishing life.

He says he has her sister's stuff—her sister, Sukey, who died five years ago. This call throws Kiri into a spiral of chaos that opens old wounds and new mysteries.

William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody was the most famous American of his age. He claimed to have worked for the Pony Express when only a boy and to have scouted for General George Custer. But what was his real story? And how did a frontiersman become a worldwide celebrity? In this prize-winning biography, acclaimed author Louis S. Warren explains not only how Cody exaggerated his real experience as an army scout and buffalo hunter, but also how that experience inspired him to create the gigantic, traveling spectacle known as Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show. A dazzling mix of Indians, cowboys, and vaqueros, they performed on two continents for three decades, offering a surprisingly modern view of the United States and a remarkably democratic version of its history. This definitive biography reveals the genius of America’s greatest showman, and the startling history of the American West that drove him and his performers to the world stage. From the Trade Paperback edition.
