A WOMAN’S BATTLE WITH THE BILLION-DOLLAR BABY BUSINESS Cracked Open is Miriam Zoll's eye-opening account of growing into womanhood with the simultaneous opportunities and freedoms afforded by the U.S. women's movement and new discoveries in reproductive technologies. Influenced by the pervasive media and cultural messages suggesting that science had eclipsed Mother Nature, Zoll––like millions of women around the world––postpones marriage and motherhood. She embarks on an exciting career, travels the globe, and eventually marries in her mid-30s. By 40, she has finally overcome her fears of being an unfit mother and is ready to embrace motherhood but nature does not cooperate. In accordance with the times, she and her husband sign up for fertility treatments but neither one is prepared for the science-fiction world they have entered; a world full of medical seduction, capitalist conception and bioethical quagmires. Desperate to conceive, they turn into fertility junkies drawn into the cold, sterile world of the laboratory, where they increasingly find themselves disconnected from nature, their values, and each other. Eventually, they realize that the unregulated multi-billion-dollar U.S. fertility industry has promised her and millions of other couples far more than it can deliver.

This book is a collection of reflections and observations about life before and after I came to prison, as currently seen from the perspective of this Awake Emptiness at my core. I am profoundly grateful to the late Douglas Harding and his friends for helping me to see Who I Really Am, and to thus break the bonds of contraction and confusion that defined my criminal past. Truly without deserving it, I have been blessed with the miracle of inner freedom, the turnaround of turnarounds, what Harding referred to as the no-meter path to heaven. This book is about living and failing to live the awakened life, and how discovering one's Emptiness—one's divinity—is the difference between the two, which, as it turns out, were never two to begin with. As Harding often said, you cannot fix yourself from the level of the self. Only the One who is Other and yet not other, who is both No-thing and Everything, who is at the very heart of you as Who You Really Are, can transform your life.

When she was six-years-old, Iman Gatti witnessed the tragic death of her mother. This began a journey in which her childhood and culture were stripped away from her only to be replaced by a decade of abuse and neglect at the hands of those appointed to protect her. Yet in this darkness, Iman held on to the light within her. A light her mother taught her was far too bright to ever be extinguished. In Cracked Open - Never Broken, Iman takes readers on a journey through a childhood of loss, heartbreak, and isolation as she clings to the hope of a life she always dreamed of. Her memoir is for anyone who refuses to succumb to the role of the victim, and instead chooses to live with an unbreakable spirit and overflowing compassion. Through sheer determination, strength, and resilience Iman overcomes the unimaginable. She is proof that, when faced with extreme suffering, the power of the human spirit can endure and transcend. Iman believes we all possess the power of forgiveness and that we can transform our trauma into triumph.

"Essentially, This Is a Book About Awakening.""In her powerful, extraordinary book, Cracked Open: Reflections on the Transformative Power of Failure, Fear & Doubt, Leslie Malin plunges to the depth of this question: Where have our love, courage, health and creativity gone when fear, failure, depression and doubt accost us? How do we navigate our way through this eternal struggle between forces of darkness and light? " (Brenda Shoshanna, author of Zen and the Art of Falling in Love and The Anger Diet)In this provocative, raw and deeply honest book, Leslie Malin opens the door to allow bravery and transformation to enter for all of us. Who has not suffered from self-doubt, fear of failure, and loss? The essential question is "Can I brave life's storms or will I curl up in a desire to be safe rather than venture forth to meet my future?" Cracked Open is a meditation. Powerful quotations from diverse sources and traditions are coupled with Malin's powerful and provocative reflections urging us to wake up. This book can:* Embolden you to take back your power* Use difficulties as inspiration* Embrace your discomfort, fear, and shame * Throw off your fear of failure and discover lessons for transformation * Turn loss and sorrow into hope, courage, and joy. Cracked Open can change you and that changes your future. You are the person you have been waiting for.

Seed Cracked Open is the second book in the Stories of an Everyday Pilgrim series. It contains 78 stories, poems and reflections about God's intimate and attentive love for us. Through the events of Esther's everyday life and her exploration of contemplative Christian spirituality, she is drawn deeper in love with God, her neighbour and creation. "The seed has cracked open," she says, "and I discovered, as the poet Hafiz did, that 'there are two of us housed in this body': God and me! Wherever we go, whatever we do, God is there-inspiring, transforming and enjoying me as I am. That's led to some delightful 'love-mischief' for the world." Seed Cracked Open also contains five prayer retreat outlines designed for individuals or groups. The contents were originally published as posts on her blog An Everyday Pilgrim from July 2013 to December 31, 2014.
