On October 21, 2004 Jason Apollo Voss had a true epiphany: there was going to be a near-collapse on Wall Street and he should retire to exclusively pursue a spiritual practice. In electing to honor his vision he gave up a career in which the mutual fund he co-managed bested the NASDAQ by 77.0%, the S&P 500 by 49.1%, and the DJIA by 34.9%. Most of this success came from a detailed, scientific understanding of the right brain and its capacity for creative and intuitive thought. These secrets and their real world application are the specific focus and passion of the Intuitive Investor. Much more than just a book about investing, The Intuitive Investor is also a guide to healthy, mindful living. Scarcely have money, mind and spirit been brought together so potently.

"Spirituality in Nursing is thought provoking and Barnum offers some excellent material and food for thought."--Journal of Christian Nursing "This is a very thought-provoking book that asks many questions, often without answers. It could be used in an undergraduate or graduate course on spirituality or death and dying, or as in-service material in hospitals and other healthcare agencies. A very interesting chapter discusses near death experiences (NDE), a phenomenon that has begun to be accepted and has garnered more study."Score: 95, 4 stars --Doody's Can nurses be expected to deliver spiritual care? Should nursing claim healing as part of its mission? Should spiritual care be taught in nursing education? What do recent brain studies teach us about spirituality? Exploring these questions and many more, this new edition of Spirituality in Nursing provides a wealth of insight into current challenges presented to both practicing nurses and students. Newly updated, revised, and expanded, this third edition examines spirituality in nursing from an interdisciplinary perspective, drawing from theoretical, historical, religious, psychological, and even physiological contexts. In her thought-provoking exploration of this sometimes controversial topic, Dr. Barnum traces nursing's involvement with spirituality from its historical ties with religion to the current interest in new age and alternative health methods. The chapters offer engaging discussions of important topics such as the distinction between spirituality and religion, spirituality and research, humanism, and death and dying. Taking a problem-solving approach, this book serves as an invaluable guide to understanding the complex and expanding role of spirituality in nursing.

Marge never believed in in the existence of ‘pure’ evil. Certainly, she placed no credence in the idea of supernatural evil, such as powerful spirits or entities from elsewhere that are capable of entering our material realm and committing horrific acts. Such fanciful notions were not part of her worldview. As Marge saw it, we already had enough vicious, hyper greedy and power hungry people in our real world, including any number of natural calamities – that was enough to deal with. Who wanted to be concerned about being beset by evil imports from some netherworld? One evening in early October, Marge and four of her friends, all college seniors, set off to look through an old, vacant farmhouse as a possible site for their Halloween party. As the three young men are examining the second floor of the house, they are interrupted by the hysterical calling out to them by one of the two young female companions. She insists, rather incoherently, that something awful has happened in the cellar. She seems to think what happened was caused by some kind of fantastic, monstrous ‘thing’, which suddenly appeared out of nowhere. Of course, her friends assume she is mistaken. As the group, all go to check out the cellar, they attempt to calm her by suggesting explanations that are more logical. Marge, the other female member of this group, is also aware that something very extraordinary did happen, and she too is shaken to the core. However, she remains silent about what she experienced. Why? When put on the spot, she draws a blank. She can’t think how to explain what she saw, heard and felt, without revealing the too humiliating truth of how she knows this: because she was eavesdropping at the cellar door. Had she not eavesdropped, Marge realizes she could have remained blithely unaware of the cellar incident, which is by far, what she would have preferred. She will later desperately look for logical, rational explanations for what seemed to have happened in that cellar. However, she will find further evidence that will only support what Marge didn’t want to believe. Indeed, that house is host to some evil alien ‘thing’ that doesn’t belong in this world. The Cellar Incident will shatter Marge’s unquestioned concepts of what constitutes reality. The experience will haunt her dreams, torment her thoughts and force her to rethink her views on everything.

Are humans unwitting partners in evolution with psychedelic plants? Darwin�s Pharmacy shows they are by weaving the evolutionary theory of sexual selection and the study of rhetoric together with the science and literature of psychedelic drugs. Long suppressed as components of the human tool kit, psychedelic plants can be usefully modeled as �eloquence adjuncts� that intensify a crucial component of sexual selection in humans: discourse. Psychedelic plants seduce us to interact with them, building an ongoing interdependence: rhetoric as evolutionary mechanism. In doing so, they engage our awareness of the noosphere, or thinking stratum of the earth. The realization that the human organism is part of an interconnected ecosystem is an apprehension of immanence that could ultimately benefit the planet and its inhabitants. To explore the rhetoric of the psychedelic experience and its significance to evolution, Doyle takes his readers on an epic journey through the writings of William Burroughs and Kary Mullis, the work of ethnobotanists and anthropologists, and anonymous trip reports. The results offer surprising insights into evolutionary theory, the war on drugs, the internet, and the nature of human consciousness itself.
