Whether we realize it or not, we are always telling stories. On a first date or job interview, at a sales presentation or therapy appointment, with family or friends, we are constantly narrating events and interpreting emotions and actions.
In this compelling book, storyteller extraordinaire Matthew Dicks presents wonderfully straightforward and engaging tips and techniques for constructing, telling, and polishing stories that will hold the attention of your audience (no matter how big or small). He shows that anyone can learn to be an appealing storyteller, that everyone has something “storyworthy” to express, and, perhaps most important, that the act of creating and telling a tale is a powerful way of understanding and enhancing your own life.
Did you know that spending time in a forest activates the vagus nerve, which is responsible for inducing calm and regeneration? Or that spending just one single day in a wooded area increases the number of natural killer cells in the blood by almost 40 percent on average?
We’ve all had an intuitive sense of the healing power of nature. Clemens G. Arvay’s new book brings us the science to verify this power, sharing fascinating research along with teachings and tools for accessing the therapeutic properties of the forest and natural world. Already a bestseller in Germany, The Biophilia Effect is a book that transforms our understanding of our interconnection with nature—and shows us how to engage the natural world wherever we live for greater health, inspiration, rejuvenation, and spiritual sustenance.
It is a commonplace among spiritual teachings that we should live in the present moment. But what does that really mean?
Bending Time offers a novel answer to that question. We must understand time as a psychic phenomenon that we ourselves create. As a product of our own creation, time structures our entire perception of the world, especially our relationships with other people. In our relationships, we recreate the past in the present moment rather than experience the present as it truly is, in an attempt to avoid the unknown, and as a result, we never allow ourselves to appreciate the full expression of another human being’s existence. To experience the present moment and to see others as they truly are, we must alter our relationship to time–we must learn to bend time.

A Heart Afire is an intimate, guided tour of many of the lesser-known and previously unpublished stories and teachings of the first three generations of Hasidism, especially those of the Ba’al Shem Tov; his heirs (boh male and female); and the students of his successor, the Maggid of Mezritch.
The authors have intended this work for seekers of any spiritual or religious orientation. Though the content is drawn from Hasidic Jewish literature, the interpretations and commentaries are infused throughout with Buddhist, Hindu, and Sufi corollaries. But the book will be of special interest to Jews, especially those sympathetic to the Jewish Renewal Movement.
