In this new edition of his acclaimed autobiography — long out of print and rare until now — Alan Watts tracks his spiritual and philosophical evolution. A child of religious conservatives in rural England, he went on to become a freewheeling spiritual teacher who challenged Westerners to defy convention and think for themselves. Watts's portrait of himself shows that he was a philosophical renegade from early on in his intellectual life. Self-taught in many areas, he came to Buddhism through the teachings of Christmas Humphreys and D. T. Suzuki. Told in a nonlinear style, In My Own Way combines Watts's brand of unconventional philosophy with wry observations on Western culture and often hilarious accounts of gurus, celebrities, and psychedelic drug experiences. A charming foreword by Watts's father sets the tone of this warm, funny, and beautifully written story. Watts encouraged readers to “follow your own weird” — something he always did himself, as this remarkable account of his life shows.

Does your child have a favorite subject, activity, or hobby? Children learn in multiple ways, and educator Thomas Armstrong has shown hundreds of thousands of parents and teachers how to locate those unique areas in each of our children where learning and creativity seem to flow with special vigor. In this fully updated classic on multiple intelligences, Armstrong sheds new light on the "eight ways to bloom," or the eight kinds of "multiple intelligences." While everyone possesses all eight intelligences, Armstrong delineates how to discover your child's particular areas of strength among them. The book shatters the conventional wisdom that brands our students as "underachievers," "unmotivated," or as suffering from "learning disabilities," "attention deficit hyperactivity disorder," or other "learning diseases." Armstrong explains how these flawed labels often overlook students who are in possession of a distinctive combination of multiple intelligences, and demonstrates how to help them acquire knowledge and skills according to their sometimes extraordinary aptitudes. Filled with resources for the home and classroom, this new edition of In Their Own Way offers inspiration for every learning situation.

Migraine: Finding My Own Way Out is a story of struggle, loyal friendship, dark days, and triumph. When traditional medicine fails, other avenues must be pursued. With raw and tender honesty, Sara Riley Mattson shares her inspiring account of how she slowly pieced together what might have caused her illness. She also includes all the details of how she found her way back to health.Excerpt: "Three weeks after beginning this protocol and one week after what I consider my last real migraine, the average rainy Portland day quickly progressed to a rare thunderstorm. The cracks and flashes of the storm shook the house and reverberated threateningly, and, to my shock, I didn't feel a headache, much less a migraine, coming on. I waited for it to start, and it didn't. I stepped out onto our front porch, sat down on the stoop, and let the vibrations of the thunder pummel me. The fierce claps of the thunder, which would have torn through my brain just three weeks prior, seemed beautiful, powerful, and not at all painful. And I wept with joy. I walked out into the rain, sat down in my driveway, and let the rain drench me as my tears fell in relief that it was over."

Globally, women have finally succeeded at doing what two millennia of men could not: they have united males from all backgrounds, cultures, and races against radical feminist doctrine. Men have coalesced in joining Men Going Their Own Way (MGTOW) and Teens Going Their Own Way (TGTOW) through the manosphere. But what of me? After more than twenty-one years as a marriage coach and counselor, I realized that I could no longer recommend that either young or old men get married. In fact, I awoke one morning knowing that I could no longer give any positive counsel, save for "leave these angry women the hell alone." I felt then, as I do now, that the so-called radical feminist movement was putting the kibosh on everything loving I was trying to hold together in the marriage arena. What I found most funny was that every feminist who tried to destroy the love between man and woman had held onto their relationships longer than any other female. I came to view feminism as little more than a new form of indentured servitude for men with the tacit approval of the governments in the countries where it had been allowed to fester and grow. That's when I decided to no longer help women enslave men but to reveal all their secrets, which I had learned during my two decades of counseling. I would help men who were married, single, or separated to untangle their lives from the women who were exchanging the tenets of love for hate. It was on that day that I became one of the Men Going Their Own Way.ABOUT THE AUTHOR Charles Rivers is a Southern California based Relationship Communication Specialist and Teacher.

By all standards of success, James Templeton seemed to have it all. He was a highly successful businessman, had a beautiful wife and daughter, and, only in his early thirties, had his whole life in front of him. To avoid the same fate as his father and grandfather, who both died of heart attacks at a young age, James became an avid runner--a passion that he believed helped him stay fit and healthy. Imagine his shock when, during a routine physical, his doctor noticed a mole on his body that turned out to be a melanoma--a dangerous form of skin cancer. The mole was removed immediately and James, who was diligent in his follow-up exams, appeared to be cancer-free--but only for a short while. When the cancer reappeared and had spread, on the advice of his doctor, James followed the conventional medical protocol, which included surgery and chemotherapy. He was also involved in a clinical trial. When he learned that the treatments weren't working, James was obviously devastated. He had reached a new low point in his life, and as he lay in the hospital bed, he prayed fervently for help. As if by some miracle, help came to James in the form of three different visitors who would change the course of his life--and help direct him on a path back to health. I Used to Have Cancer is James Templeton's memoir--an inspiring look back at his unique journey in overcoming stage 4 melanoma. James takes you with him on a trip crisscrossing America, during which he shares the various natural approaches he followed to battle his cancer--from diet and supplements to meditation and lifestyle adjustments. As his journey continued, you will see first-hand how James' definition of success changed from making money to seeing the next sunrise. And how he continues finding success by reaching out to others to share the lessons he has learned. While this book largely focuses on the various methods James used to overcome his own cancer, it is also an inspiring story of not giving up when all other avenues of conventional medicine fail. It is about taking control of your life and finding a way back from the brink of death. It is about being able to tell your friends, "I used to have cancer."

“Freedom! Finally life on my own!” Excited about making your mark on the world, living life on your own terms and eating ice cream for dinner if you want? Being on your own is so great, but when the decisions get a little more difficult than “Do I wash a black-and-white striped shirt with whites or colors?”, this little book will be invaluable. On My Own Now shows you how to apply biblical wisdom of the ages to choosing everything from friends to underwear; exercising and exorcising (ooh, creepy); juggling commitments and balancing bills; taking mom and dad for all they’re worth (er, uh, we mean like taking their advice and stuff); and waiting, dating and maybe someday mating. On My Own Now is about strengthening young women’s faith and preventing the screw-ups that can brand us for life. Donna Lee Schillinger draws on her eclectic past as a rebellious youth, Peace Corps volunteer, social worker, single mother, court mediator and executive director of a home for single young mothers. She uses gender-reversed Proverbs with real-life applications to wave the red flag of caution for young women, warning against the pitfalls of a post-modern, sexually casual, consumer-is-king society that is indelibly scarring youth with cynicism, sexually transmitted diseases and bad credit. This compact collection of quirky vignettes is great for daily devotions, affirmations, confessions, benedictions and many other religious “tions,” all with the goal of keeping you on the yellow brick road. After all, you’re not in Kansas anymore – you’re on your own now (unless you live in Kansas, then you would still be in Kansas…). “Every once in a while, a book lands in my hands that I know immediately is truly extraordinary. On My Own Now is such a book. Donna Lee Schillinger's writing style absolutely sparkles and is a joy to read just for the sheer pleasure of observing a true wordsmith at work. Then, there's the content, which is absolutely exceptional. If you could put one book into the hands of every young woman you know, this should be the book. And if she applied a fraction of the wisdom contained therein, she'd be spared a mountain of tears. This is an amazing book and I highly recommend it.” Donna Partow, Author, Becoming the Woman God Wants Me To Be: A 90-Day Guide to Living the Proverbs 31 Life.

On Christmas Day, 1926, twelve-year-old Clotilde “Coco” Irvine received a blank diary as a present. Coco loved to write—and to get into scrapes—and her new diary gave her the opportunity to explain her side of the messes she created: “I’m in deep trouble through no fault of my own,” her entries frequently began. The daughter of a lumber baron, Coco grew up in a twenty-room mansion on fashionable Summit Avenue at the peak of the Jazz Age, a time when music, art, and women’s social status were all in a state of flux and the economy was still flying high. Coco’s diary carefully records her adventures, problems, and romances, written with a lively wit and a droll sense of humor. Whether sneaking out to a dance hall in her mother’s clothes or getting in trouble for telling an off-color joke, Coco and her escapades will captivate and delight preteen readers as well as their mothers and grandmothers. Peg Meier’s introduction describes St. Paul life in the 1920s and provides context for the privileged world that Coco inhabits, while an afterword tells what happens to Coco as an adult—and reveals surprises about some of the other characters in the diary.
