Skills for people to learn to be with themselves in the healthiest way possible. Have you ever noticed how cruel and self-sabotaging your critical inner voice can be? Have you been looking outside of yourself for friends and loved ones to reassure you of your worthiness and lovability? The latest developments in neuroscience unveil the amazing extent to which humans are wired for connection, belonging and resonance with other humans. This wiring for connection is so strong, our nervous systems have the capacity to become our own compassionate self-witnesses, even when we have not had access as children to stable loving presence and warmth. The field of neurobiology and the science of mindfulness reveal that the human brain is capable of being engaged in the experience of upset (fear, anxiety, depression) while simultaneously observing and holding ourselves with kindness, as a loving parent or partner would. This ability to be both experiencing and holding the experience is the key to maintaining inner calm in the face of life’s challenges. If we learn to honor that each and every inner voice, no matter how distressing, has the desire to help us, we open to the possibility that each part of us has value. This help creates a gentle, accepting and warm resonance with ourselves that can remain stable and present, even when parts of us feel upset. In simple language and easy-to-follow exercises, Your Resonant Self synthesizes the latest discoveries in brain science, trauma treatment, and the power of empathy into an effective healing method that literally rewires our brain and restores our capacity for self-love and well-being. Each chapter weaves the core concepts of neurobiology with guided meditations and beautiful illustrations by emily chaffee, painting an inspiring picture of the human brain’s inherent yearning toward healing and wholeness.

"The Buddha never compelled anybody to have blind faith in Him. He just exhorted us to depend on our own wisdom. It is not because we are born as humans that we become wise or foolish. It is because we can bring our defilements under control that we become wise, and it is because we can’t bring our defilements under control that we become foolish. We all have both good and bad qualities. Snakes, chickens, and pigs are not created for you to eat. It is in such existences that you yourself have been born before. We can’t harm anybody without harming ourselves. We can’t disturb others without disturbing ourselves. Patience means accepting. Very beautiful! Accepting both the desirable and the undesirable is the perfection of patience. You make friends with the defilements all the time, but the defilements never treat you as a friend in return. They treat you as an enemy. The Buddha never says, 'Come and believe'. He says, ‘Come and see; the wise can know, the wise can see’. ‘One who sees the Dhamma, sees me. One who sees me, sees the Dhamma’." [From a book published by Pa-Auk Meditation Centre, a Centre of Theravāda Buddhist Tradition]

Meditation And The Evolution Of Cosmic Consciousness

This book is about the little-known fact that there are four different kinds of meditation—Witness Meditation, Transformative Meditation, Discursive Meditation, and Transcendental Meditation. More often, each kind of meditation is promoted and practiced apart from the others. But combined as a process, they lead to cosmic consciousness and more loving attitude toward one’s self and planet Earth. Instead of the violence of interpersonal competition and environmental exploitation so prevalent today, the ideals of peace, justice, and harmony can become the new reality given a more integrated approach to life’s material, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual realms of experience. But in spite of the enormous advances in technology, we are still caught up in unwinnable wars that cost lives and resources of all the participants; we are still confronted by the injustices of social and economic controls that have most recently resulted in meltdowns; and we are still faced with that seemingly unsolvable environmental problems that are plaguing our planet today . Seemingly, the leadership of our global community is failing us. So it’s up to us as individuals. Meditation and the Evolution of Cosmic Consciousness is not a how-to book, however. It is an attempt to identify the process in a way that can be imitated. To do so, Don Ayre has reviewed his private practice as a family and child therapist and the writings of a number of historical figures that he recognizes as “great minds” for evidences of cosmic consciousness that can be used to build a living model. Ayre invites his readers to examine their uses of meditation and the writings of their favorite authors to contribute their thoughts and ideas that will assist with the evolution of cosmic consciousness.

Walk with Jo as she guides you through the kaleidoscope of change, basking at paths end in the comforting rays of your colourful awareness. The paths end is really only the beginning; the beginning of an awareness that embraces the welcome clarity only seen through the openness of mind and vulnerability of soul. A vulnerability sheltered by the safety of Jo's melodic words born from knowledge of paths already tread and transformations experienced. -Sandra J Kelly I thought I was going to be writing a conclusion. I have decided that it is not a conclusion but a beginning. This is a reawakening of your inner soul, your inner being of who you are.

Like they always say, "the teacher will appear when the student is ready." If you would have told me 10 years ago that I would be writing a book on meditation I never would have believed you. It is amazing what happens in your life when you open yourself up to believe. When you believe, wonderful, amazing, stupendous things present themselves to you. When you thought it was not possible. Believe in yourself, and watch an amazing journey begin in your life. Here's to you benefiting as much as I did from my own personal journey into the "self."

As we move into the 1980s, there is an increasing awareness that our civilization is going through a profound cultural transformation. At the heart of this transformation lies what is often called a "paradigm shift"-a dramatic change in the thoughts, perceptions, and values which form a particular vision of reality. The paradigm that is now shifting comprises a large number of ideas and values that have dominated our society for several hundred years; values that have been associated with various streams of Western culture, among them the Scientific Revolution of the seventeenth century, The Enlightenment, and the Industrial Revolution. They include the belief in the scientific method as the only valid approach to knowledge, the split between mind and matter, the view of nature as a mechanical system, the view of life in society as a competitive struggle for survival, and the belief in unlimited material progress to be achieved through economic and technological growth. All these ideas and values are now found to be severely limited and in need of radical revision.

Epilepsy is a difficult illness to control; up to 35% of patients do not respond fully to traditional medical treatments. For this reason, many sufferers choose to rely on or incorporate complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) into their treatment regimens. Written for physicians, knowledgeable laypersons, and other professionals, Complementary and Alternative Therapies for Epilepsy bridges the worlds of traditional medicine and CAM to foster a broader perspective of healthcare for patients. The book respects cultural differences that may incorporate alternative medicine into a medical management program, and encourages patients to safely continue receiving necessary medical treatments. Wherever possible, scientific evidence supports the choice of treatment modalities, as well as the effectiveness of a combined traditional and CAM approach. Readers will find incisive discussions in sections on: Learning to Reduce Seizures Asian, Herbal and Homeopathic Therapies Nutritional Therapies Alternative Medical Therapies Oxygen Therapies Manipulation and Osteopathic Therapies Music, Art, and Pet Therapies From stress and epilepsy, to acupuncture, massage, craniosacral therapies, homeopathy, ketogenic diets, aromatherapy, hypnosis, and more, the book is all-inclusive and enlightening. Additional commentary by the editors provides a critical vantage point from which to interpret the data and viewpoints of the contributors, all experts in the therapies presented. This balanced, scientific approach will appeal to even those most skeptical of alternative therapies, making the book essential for every professional who seeks to provide the broadest range of effective patient care.
