This book is an account of the personal and collective struggles of First Nations people and how the principles which held traditional societies together can be used today to promote harmonious and cooperative relationships by both aboriginals and non-aboriginals. Calvin Morrisseau provides in it the fundamentals for healing that he has learned over twenty years through his training in counselling and addiction studies; his education in traditional practices by aboriginal elders, healers, and teachers; and his personal recovery from alcoholism, drug addiction, abuse, and the effects of assimilation, racism and poverty. The model of healing Morrisseau advocates is simple, insightful, and based on the values that allowed aboriginal people to live in accord with each other in the past. His approach centres on people accepting responsibility and making choices that give them the freedom required to enter into recovery by recapturing their sense of harmony, cooperation, sharing, balance and spirituality. The deepest healing takes place on a spiritual level. Morrisseau describes an interdependent system of individual, family, and community in which needs, desires, values, and purpose are communicated, and the responsibility to ensure everyone has an opportunity to grow to their full potential is shared. The book is unique in that it offers guidance on ways in which communities can heal. While the book was written for people who work with aboriginal people, the wholistic approach Morrisseau uses can benefit anyone. The healing model can be used by an individual seeking to heal himself, by a professional as a tool for assessment and treatment, and by a community in crisis.

It was a quiet night in the Shovel. At the bar, which ranged along one side of the large chinked log room, leaned half a dozen men, two of whom were discussing the relative merits of spruce-tea and lime juice as remedies for scurvy. They argued with an air of depression and with intervals of morose silence. The other men scarcely heeded them. In a row, against the opposite wall, were the gambling games. The crap table was deserted. One lone man was playing at the faro table. The roulette ball was not even spinning, and the gamekeeper stood by the roaring, red-hot stove, talking with the young, dark eyed woman, comely of face and figure, who was known from Juneau to Fort Yukon as the Virgin. Three men sat in at stud poker, but they played with small chips and without enthusiasm, while there were no onlookers. On the floor of the dancing room, which opened out at the rear, three couples were waltzing drearily to the strains of a violin and a piano.

Here is a comprehensive and practical guide to using the Five Element model in your daily life in ways that can improve your physical health, foster mental ease and clarity, create more emotional balance, and bring you closer to spirit. Having introduced the philosophical and practical principles of the Five Elements, the author invites you to 'live the book', immersing yourself in the many aspects of each Element during its corresponding season. He offers a range of methods of doing this, including activities such as movement, cooking, gardening, journaling, visualisation, meditation, dialogue and self-acupressure. In working with each Element, he explores the three levels or expressions of human life - the physical (structures, organs, tissues and systems), the psycho-emotional (thoughts, beliefs, self-images, emotions and reactions), and the spirit. Detailed information is provided on each Element's specific attributes, associations, resonances and gifts, and anatomical illustrations are included for further guidance. An invaluable reference book for practitioners and students of Chinese Medicine who hope to become better practitioners to others, the book also provides the means to become a practitioner to yourself.

This is a compilation of short stories from the pen of an old man. He writes about Western Africa, during the days of the slave trade, as told by someone who was there. He tells about the circumstances of his capture and the horror of the boat ride over. You will read about a gang banger, murderer, and prison snitch, who after twenty-eight years in solitary confinement, emerges as God's most anointed servant. Read how hard it was for young mothers, alone, to raise children in those dangerous, big city projects. Read a story about a young man on death row and what put him there. The year is 1934. You will visit a small church, out in the woods, near the Mississippi Delta, where one can enjoy Sunday night services and inspirational spirituals as song by our beautiful Sunday's bird. I will tell you about what I saw, one Saturday night, that eyes should not see. The first part of the book of Genesis will be reread. One story is about a storefront church, located between a liquor store and a motorcycle club, with its congregation of recovering addicts and felons. A grandfather tells a boy about what happened the night that his own grandfather went to heaven during the days of bondage. You will read about the life of a frightened mother of the church, who had been given up on, and was on the way to her final resting place. Armageddon, through literature, we will witness the final hours of that last day. Through the vision of an old deacon, you will witness that blissful paradise called heaven. The most profound story is a question. What is the future of the modern black church?

“There is a part of the soul that stirs at night, in the dark and soundless times of day, when our defenses are down and our daylight distractions no longer serve to protect us from ourselves,” writes beloved author, Joan Chittister. “It’s then, in the still of life, when we least expect it, that questions emerge from the damp murkiness of our inner underworld…These questions do not call for the discovery of data; they call for the contemplation of possibility.” In words as wise as they are inspiring, Between the Dark and the Daylight explores the concerns of modern life, of the overworked mind and hurting heart. These are the paradoxical—and often frustrating—moments when our lives feel at odds with everything around us. Only by embracing the contradictions, Chittister contends, may we live well amid stress, withstand emotional storms, and satisfy our yearnings for something transcendent and real. By delving into the chaos, this book guides us through the questions that seemed easier to avoid and enlightens what has been out of focus. With her signature elegance, wit, and spirit, the bestselling author of The Gift of Years and Following the Path opens our eyes and hearts in these times of confusion. With simple and poignant meditations, Between the Dark and the Daylight reveals how we can better understand ourselves, one another, and God. From the Hardcover edition.

The untold story of life on the road with the Grateful Dead, written by an insider who lived it from the early days to today. Steve Parish was never one to walk the straight-and-narrow, even during his childhood growing up in Flushing Meadow, Queens. Busted as a teenager for selling acid in the summer of 1968, Parish landed in Riker's Island. The experience changed him and after getting out he did his best to stay out of trouble, securing a job moving music equipment at the New York State Pavilion. The first show he worked was a Grateful Dead concert in July of 1969 and Parish was captivated by the music. A life seemingly headed nowhere had suddenly found its calling as he fell in quickly with a band of likeminded misfits who formed the nucleus of what would be the greatest road crew in rock 'n' roll history. Parish traveled to California where his apprenticeship began. Working for the band for free and learning his craft, Parish got to know Jerry, Bobby, Phil, Billy and Mickey and through the years their relationships forged an unbreakable bond. He became very close with Garcia in particular, acting as his personal roadie and later manager for his solo performances and Garcia Band shows. He was there during times of trouble (like when a pimp held Garcia hostage at gunpoint in a New York hotel room), spending hours by his bedside when Garcia was in a coma in 1986, and performing the duties of best man at his wedding. He was also the last friend to see Garcia alive. Throughout the Dead's historic run, there were parties of biblical proportion and celebrity run-ins with everybody from Bob Dylan to Frank Sinatra--but there was a dark side to life on the road and tragedy didn't just strike the musicians. But Home Before Daylight is a story of friendship, of music and redemption. It is a piece of music history, one that reflects the American spirit of adventure and brotherhood. Seen through Steve Parish's eyes and experiences, The Grateful Dead's wild ride has never been so revealing.

Can or will a university/college president bring to the office an educational philosophy developed during turbulent times, or must he start afresh in a demanding, controversial position? Arthur DeRosier faced leadership choices during three college presidencies covering a quarter of a century. He brought to those presidencies a youth that spanned the Depression and World War II, experiences gained through four years in the U.S. Air Force including the Korean Conflict, college education in Mississippi and South Carolina, and history professorships, and administrative skills gained over 21 years (1956-77) at six institutions of higher learning in four states. In "Looking For Daylight," DeRosier explores the belief system he brought to the president's office, the problems encountered along a 25 year journey at three different colleges that required academic skills and patience to develop a graduate program at a regional university, and, then, to play a leadership role in saving two fine private liberal arts colleges from extinction. In so doing, the author examines the role past experiences and an ever-evolving academic philosophy played in avoiding the death of two colleges, while diversifying institutional beliefs and activities in the ever-changing and always challenging world of higher education.

Awarded a 2015 Living Now Evergreen Bronze Medal Book Award for Spiritual Leadership You Can Change Your Life by Living in Light, Love & Truth—Awareness + Reflection + Learning + Application = Wisdom. Living in Light, Love & Truth provides insight in how to balance the spiritual (inner) and physical (outer) aspects of ourselves as an individual and in the life we live.

Living in Light, Love & Truth explores topics such as our life purpose, the ego, energy, free will, intuition and gratitude. It also offers the opportunity to reflect, understand and cleanse fear-based energies that inhibit you from holistically experiencing an empowering and positive life. To help you on your life journey, each chapter is accompanied with reflective quotes, reflection exercises and affirmations, which form part of the self-healing process. Living in Light, Love & Truth is the first layer of life transformation: taking responsibility for actions, emotions, feelings, thoughts, words and perceptions towards ourselves, others, situations and environments. Knowledge without application is simply knowledge. Applying the knowledge to one’s life is wisdom—and that is the ultimate virtue. From a young age, Kasi Kaye Iliopoulos has known a great compassion for life. Her passion to discover the spiritual laws of life has always inspired her. Undertaking energy healing practitioner training steered her towards healing herself and others, and living her life purpose. She currently lives in Melbourne, Australia.
