What this model, The Sun Lotus Recovery Model, puts forward is a spiritual approach that does not offer an intervention of a "Higher Power," but one that supports the individual to find their naturally inherent inner potential and develop themselves without an intervention from a "Higher Power." This is called in Buddhism, The Middle Way, or The Inner Way, or even The Sacred Way, which teaches that Human potential (Life), is unlimited and that by tapping into that well spring of potential (Buddha Nature) through Buddhist Practice the individual can bring about a profound positive change on the deepest and most fundamental level of Life.This is also a Human centered approach which says that the individual already has the potential for positive change and just needs the correct causes and conditions to manifest it without the need of an intervention by an exterior "God" or a "Higher Power".Buddhism is a philosophical faith that has no Godhead, or Higher Power to pray too, for salvation. (from addiction or suffering)It teaches that the individual can bring about their own Enlightenment, through their own efforts, through Buddhist Practice, thus overcoming the Four Universal Sufferings of Birth, Old Age, Sickness and Death and all the other existential Human sufferings including that of addiction.From this model and understanding Sun Lotus Recovery was devised and is the complete A to Z of Addiction and Recovery.I hope the reader truly finds something useful in this writing and that it is a tool for them to overcome the misery caused by an addiction disorder not only in their Life but in the lives of all those who are connected to them through Human bonds of family and love.I am not a special person, I am not a different person, I am in fact a very ordinary person who has been able to sustain my Recovery through this programme which I will now explain and deliver in these writings. If I am able to succeed in using this Life philosophy, faith and practice to maintain my own Recovery from my addiction disorder and to experience my own personal growth and development into a better, happier more contented Human Being, then I believe that this can also be the experience of anyone else who chooses to follow in my footsteps, whatever their nationality, gender, race or sexual orientation as these teachings and practices are truly Universal and transcend all such distinctions between us Human Beings.If this endeavour can enable and empower even a single person to transform themselves and enable them to break the chains and shackles of this painful and Life devouring brain disorder then my mission would have been accomplished.The title of the book derives from the Nichiren Shoshu Buddhist tradition of going on a pilgrimage to The Head Temple at Taiseki Ji, nearby Fujinomiya, nestled in the foothills of Mount Fuji, Japan, called "Tozan" which is translated into English as "Climbing the Mountain." This is why The Nichiren Shoshu School is also known as The Fuji School

This is a comprehensive, full-colour manual providing a complete reference for climbers of every level and discipline. It covers all the skills, safety issues and equipment necessary for the key climbing disciplines: mountains, bouldering and climbing walls, summer climbing, winter climbing, big wall and expedition climbing. This exciting book is extensively illustrated throughout, with practical diagrams as well as inspirational and instructive photographs covering everything from the basic saftey, equipment and techniques to advanced-level mountaineering on some of the world's toughest ascents. The basic skills includes fundamental information on the necessary technical equipment, from harness, rock boots and ropes to slings, karabiners and belay devices. There is a detailed section on different types of knots with clear diagrams to exemplify each. The technical skills section gives comprehensive information on abseiling with diagrams and photographs, plus various emergency procedures that all climbers and mountaineers should know. The natural ability to climb is in all of us, it is getting it out on to the surface and refining it into a useful skill that is the trick. Pete Hill explains how to move on rock with the various handholds, footholds and specific climbing techniques, he shows the attractions of bouldering, and the importance of chalk as part of a boulderer's arsenal, and finally Pete discusses the various types of climbing walls. The summer section of the book details everything you need to know about traditional climbing, considered by many as the purest form of the sport, as well as sport climbing, and Via Ferratas which are well suited for families new to climbing. The Winter section covers avalanches, ice climbing and snow shelters, as well as step kicking, step cutting and crampon techniques. For the more advanced climbers and mountaineers, the Alpine Climbing, Big wall climbing and expedition sections of the book will provide you with ideas, equipment information, techniques, advice on how to overcome any problems and scenarios to get your adrenaline racing. The Appendices provides essential and useful information on the various climbing grades worldwide, as well as factors and forces. It is one of very few books on the market that is so comprehensive, internationally relevant and covers so many different types of climbing. It is written by Pete Hill (MIC, FRGS), an experienced and highly-regarded author and climbing instructor. Pete is author of the bestselling 'Mountain Skills Training Handbook' and 'The International Handbook of Technical Mountaineering'. He has led mountaineering expeditions to the Indian and Nepalese Himalaya, and was leader of an international expedition to Kashmir which made the first ascents of three previously unclimbed peaks.

What makes a good explorer? Adaptability, ambition, stamina, self-confidence, curiosity, optimism, authority—and fund-raising ability. Though few of us will ever have to face a charging elephant, or survive solely on penguin stew, when it comes to project management, crisis aversion, or any number of everyday problems, there is much we can learn from the larger-than-life tales of the world's most famous adventurers. Here, award-winning documentarian Mick Conefrey pulls practical advice from their original diaries and logs, like how to survive an anaconda attack (wait until it has swallowed your legs, then reach down and cut its head off), and how to keep morale up (according to Ernest Shackleton, "A good laugh doesn't require any additional weight"). In addition to the wonderful characters and stories, this book offers many lessons on how to set sail without a clear path home. Answers to some important questions, courtesy of The Adventurer's Handbook: * How many corpses are believed to be on Mt. Everest? Answer: 120 * How is polar bear meat best prepared? Answer: Raw and frozen. * What do you do if attacked by a charging lion? Answer: Stand very still and stare it down. * What should you wear when crossing a desert? Answer: Lots of layers—fabric absorbs sweat and prolongs its cooling action.
