Throughout history there have been rare individuals who transcend what most of us believe to be possible- enlightened beings who have access to experience and knowledge most of us do not have. The Indian-born avatar Mother Meera is such an individual. Born Kamala Reddy to an illiterate family, she was from a young age observed to be different from other children-she would sit in the forest for hours on end without moving or uttering a word and soon began attracting a following of devotees who would arrive to sit in her presence. Believed to be an embodiment of the Divine Feminine, she doesn't preach, speak, or charge money, and is of no particular religion; instead, she gives light to those who seek her help. Known throughout the world for her abilities to undo oenergetic knotso and to radically quicken the spiritual development of others, she has a center in Germany, where thousands of people visit her each month to receive her famous darshan,a silent blessing, and she has established a school in India for more than a thousand of the neediest students in the region. Writing with her approval and cooperation, Mark Matousek, a longtime follower, has crafted a deeply moving and insightful book that takes us as close as possible to this remarkable woman, and to the experience of enlightenment. Advance praise for Mother of the Unseen World oMother of the Unseen Worldreads like a classic adventure novel, with one exception-much of the adventure goes on inside the reader as we follow Mark Matousek's everyman journey from pain and doubt to discovery and awakening. I don't know who I learned the most from-the wise and powerful Indian saint Mother Meera, or the very human, very real, and equally wise Mark Matousek. I could not put this book down.o-Elizabeth Lesser, author of Broken Openand co-founder of Omega Institute oMark Matousek brings us to the feet of Mother Meera in this transcendent, rapturous, astonishing book. He is at once an inspired teacher and the humblest of students. This is a divine book about a divine woman and one of the best books I've read on the need for the return of the divine feminine here and now.o-Eve Ensler, author of The Vagina Monologuesand In the Body of the World oMother of the Unseen Worldis absolutely riveting. It's clear and engaging-and at the same time, deeply searching and thought-provoking. Mark Matousek uses his own encounters with Mother Meera as a lens through which to examine her life, teachings, and influence in the world.o-Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project

When all seems lost, where can hope be found? Katherine and Jay married right after college and sought adventure far from home in Los Angeles, CA. As they pursued their dreams, they planted their lives in the city and in their church community. Their son, James, came along unexpectedly in the fall of 2007, and just 6 months later, everything changed in a moment for this young family. On April 21, 2008, as James slept in the other room, Katherine collapsed, suffering a massive brain stem stroke without warning. Miraculously, Jay came home in time and called for help. Katherine was immediately rushed into micro-brain surgery, though her chance of survival was slim. As the sun rose the next morning, the surgeon proclaimed that Katherine had survived the removal of part of her brain, though her future recovery was completely uncertain. Yet in that moment, there was a spark of hope. Through 40 days on life support in the ICU and nearly 2 years in full-time brain rehab, that spark of hope was fanned into flame. Defying every prognosis, with grit and grace, Katherine and Jay, side by side, struggled to regain a life for Katherine as she re-learned to talk and eat and walk. Returning home with a severely disabled body but a completely renewed purpose, they committed to celebrate this gift of a second chanceby embracing life fully, even though that life looked very different than they could have ever imagined. In the midst of continuing hardships and struggles, both in body and mind, Katherine and Jay found what we all long to find...hope, hope that heals the most broken place, our souls. An excruciating yet beautiful road to recovery has led the Wolf family to their new normal, in which almost every moment of life is marked with the scars of that fateful April day in 2008. Now, eight years later, Katherine and Jay are stewarding their story of suffering, restoration, and Christ-centered hope in this broken world through their ministry Hope Heals.

Communication is essential in a healthy organization. But all too often when we interact with people—especially those who report to us—we simply tell them what we think they need to know. This shuts them down. To generate bold new ideas, to avoid disastrous mistakes, to develop agility and flexibility, we need to practice Humble Inquiry. Ed Schein defines Humble Inquiry as “the fine art of drawing someone out, of asking questions to which you do not know the answer, of building a relationship based on curiosity and interest in the other person.” In this seminal work, Schein contrasts Humble Inquiry with other kinds of inquiry, shows the benefits Humble Inquiry provides in many different settings, and offers advice on overcoming the cultural, organizational, and psychological barriers that keep us from practicing it.

"This is the kind of book that I truly love - one that is very simple and direct with easy to understand instructions that one can translate into his or her own experience almost immediately. Notice how Lynn is breaking down experience into its simplest parts and then really look into your own experience to verify that she has given you a map to suffering and how to heal it. This book can do more than help you stop torturing yourself with thoughts. It can help you come to accept and love your entire experience." Scott Kiloby, Founder of the Living Inquiries You opened this book because your thoughts are torturing you and you want to end your suffering. This book will help you understand your mind, body, and nervous system. Knowing how a system works makes it possible to apply an effective remedy when something goes wrong. We develop troubling patterns in response to experiences of fear and stress. They do not have to be permanent. As you work with the simple, powerful practices in this book, you begin to experience life without fear and it becomes possible to relax your vigilance. You discover you are not alone, that you have support, and you can learn how to do this. I know this to be true from my own direct experience and with other people. Healing is possible and it is worth it. Twenty-five years ago my shoulders were like cement from chronic stress. I was shut down emotionally. My thinking was compulsive as I tried in vain to control outer circumstances and people so I could feel better. I developed PTSD in 2005 after I was assaulted. I healed from it and I am now strong and resilient. This book is based on twenty years of teaching meditation and on the Living Inquiries, a form of mindfulness self-inquiry with which we look at how our thoughts and feelings are Velcroed together creating identification, fear or compulsion. Natural Rest is an ongoing invitation to relax and notice there is a simple, restful awareness here in every moment. This book is organized into short chapters on specific subjects so you can go right to where you need support - from catastrophic "what-if" thinking to a racing mind that is keeping you awake at night. Many of our thoughts are based on associations with our past experiences and memories. Our brains and nervous systems are hard-wired to notice danger. Activation in our survival system is the origin of much of our fearful and anxious thinking. There are simple ways to work with daily life issues like fear of flying or social anxiety. Breathing out for six seconds activates our relaxation response. You can put that tip to work right away by singing, counting or lengthening your exhalation. You can make friends with your own mind. Friendliness and inner strength are the foundation for a healthy, fulfilling life. They are the key to freeing yourself from the torture of your thoughts and experiencing a new, more fulfilling way of living. "She has been in the combat zone and come back to report the way out. Let Lynn show you a less constricted way to feel, to see, to be. It is peace she offers, with a smile." Colette Kelso "You will feel safe with Lynn." Jerry Katz "Lynn describes how even intense feelings and disturbing thought patterns can be unwound when we know how to do so safely." Fiona Robertson "Lynn explains how to heal yourself from anxiety, trauma and just the everyday experience of believing our stressful thoughts. This book provides easy to follow explanations and instructions." Dr Kay Vogt "Lynn speaks from experience. Her dedication and compassion in assisting people to free themselves is boundless." Fiona Murphy "Lynn uses clear and simple techniques to help us finally get out of our heads and into the moment." Chad Sewich "She is a master at becoming intimate with how our thinking and nervous system works and making positive change, replacing confusion with confidence." Sutra Ray Robinson

"At once profound, spiritual, and witty, Master of the Three Ways is a remarkable work about human nature, the essence of life, and how to live simply and with awareness. In three hundred and fifty-seven verses, the author, Hung Ying-ming a seventeenth-century Chinese sage explores good and evil, honesty and deception, wisdom and foolishness, and heaven and hell. He draws from the wisdom of the Three Creeds Taoism, Confucianism, and Zen Buddhism to impress upon us that by combining simple elegance with the ordinary, we can make our lives artistic and poetic. This sense, along with a particular understanding of Zen that makes art from the simple in everyday life, has permeated Chinese and Japanese culture to this day. The work is divided into two books. The first generally deals with the art of living in society and the second is concerned with man's solitude and contemplations of nature. These themes repeatedly spill over into each other, creating multiple levels of meaning."
