The Surrender Experiment

By Michael A. Singer
Authors:
Michael A. Singer
Michael A. Singer, author of The Untethered Soul, tells the extraordinary story of what happened when, after a deep spiritual awakening, he decided to let go of his personal preferences and simply let life call the shots. As Singer takes you on this great experiment and journey into life's perfection, the events that transpire will both challenge your deepest assumptions about life and inspire you to look at your own life in a radically different way.Spirituality is meant to bring about harmony and peace. But the diversity of our philosophies, beliefs, concepts, and views about the soul often leads to confusion. To reconcile the noise that clouds spirituality, Michael Singer combines accounts of his own life journey to enlightenment - from his years as a hippie-loner to his success as a computer program engineer to his work in spiritual and humanitarian efforts - with lessons on how to put aside conflicting beliefs, let go of worries, and transform misdirected desires. Singer provides a road map to a new way of living not in the moment, but to exist in a state of perpetual happiness.

The Still Point of the Turning World

By Emily Rapp
Authors:
Emily Rapp
THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERWith a new chapter detailing the events that have taken place since Ronan's passing in February 2013. Like all mothers, Emily Rapp had ambitious plans for her son, Ronan. He would be smart, loyal, physically fearless, level-headed but fun. He would be good at crossword puzzles like his father. He would be an avid skier like his mother. Rapp would speak to him in foreign languages and give him the best education. But all of these plans changed when Ronan was diagnosed at nine months old with Tay-Sachs disease, a rare and always-fatal degenerative disorder. Ronan was not expected to live beyond the age of three; he would be permanently stalled at a developmental level of six months. Rapp and her husband were forced to re-evaluate everything they thought they knew about raising a family. They would have to learn to live with their child in the moment; to find happiness in the midst of sorrow; to parent without a future. The Still Point of the Turning World is the story of a mother's journey through grief and beyond it. Rapp's response to her son's diagnosis was a belief that she needed to 'make my world big' - to make sense of her family's situation through art, literature, philosophy, theology and myth. Drawing on a broad range of thinkers and writers, from C.S. Lewis to Sylvia Plath, Hegel to Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, Rapp learns what wisdom there is to be gained from parenting a terminally ill child. In luminous, exquisitely moving prose, she re-examines our most fundamental assumptions about what it means to be a good parent, to be a success, and to live a meaningful life.

Sunshine

By Robert Mighall
Authors:
Robert Mighall
Robert Mighall is hopelessly addicted to sunshine. He climbs ladders to catch the last rays of the descending sun and takes regular sun breaks during the working day, joining the smokers outside for his own furtive fix. An obsessive, yes, but he is only an extreme example of our national type. Sunshine explores this obsession. It explains how sunshine became a symbol of health, hope and freedom in the early 20th century, and why we have much to thank the nudists for. It explores why sunshine gives us pleasure, the rites and rituals of modern sun-worship, and how this love affair finds expression in the books we read, the films we watch, and the songs we hear every day.Witty, romantic and absurdly obsessive Sunshine illuminates something everybody loves, yet nobody has attempted to capture between two covers. It is also an open love letter to the most fickle mistress northern man ever served.

Soulmates

By Sue Minns
Authors:
Sue Minns
The subject of soulmates is perennially popular but the idea of "finding your soulmate" has always focused predominantly on the belief that once you've found each other, you will live happily ever after. Such a meeting can bring untold opportunities - the chance to heal wounds and resolve 'unfinished business' from past lives - as well as the soul growth and understanding to be had from liaisons which may be more difficult, but which are just as powerful and important. Some soulmates come into our lives to give us wake-up calls and the opportunity to see things differently.Sue Minns discusses the nature of the soul, explaining what exactly a soulmate is - and how to recognise one - as well as why they come into our lives when they do. She reveals how finding a soulmate can be not only an intense and unforgettable experience in its own right, but also a step on the path to opening your heart and mind, changing the way you see the world, and leading you towards a partner who is truly right for you.

    By Michal Levin
    Authors:
    Michal Levin
    A former BBC Newsnight journalist and management consultant, Michal Levin's life changed when she became troubled by an incomprehensible inner disquiet. She left her career and a new - spirit - world opened when she took up meditation. Over a period of months, she began to accept that she was a healer, an intuitive and a teacher. She was even able to diagnose her own near-fatal brain tumour, despite doctors' dismissals, and so save her life. Michal encounters many people in her teachings with the same 'ache' in their lives. Spiritual Intelligence addresses that increasing number who feel - despite money, success, education, even fame - that there is a missing element. It teaches us how to go on a personal journey - to embrace spirituality, develop intuition and bring it into our everyday lives for ultimate fulfilment.
