    Title: Effectual Prayer
    Author: FOULKS FRANCES W.

    Frances W. Foulks takes the reader through eight steps of prayer—from what
    makes prayer effectual to actually living in the consciousness of the Christ. This
    is a timeless book, so while the writing style differs from what the contemporary
    reader may expect, it is like remembering your grandmother’s advice when faced
    with a current problem. Rev. Foulks’ observations are astonishingly simple but
    not simplistic. In commenting on how we ourselves limit our capacity to receive
    an answer to our prayers, she says: “The answer desired when the prayer is
    offered may never be manifested, for aslong as we are seeking things, our desires
    change with the fashions, and there is no perfect pattern for substance to follow.”
    The meditations offered in the back of the book were given to the writer in
    various times of need, to be used for herself or for someone seeking help through
    her. Foulks says the meditations came not from herself but “as the voice of the
    Christ speaking through her.” She offers them as her gift to the reader.
    She could be describing her own book when she writes:
    To read a holy meditation over and over and over again, perhaps to memorize
    it, is to be filled with its holy thoughts both in the conscious and the subconscious
    mind. The vision is lifted: we enter the high watch. Fears and doubts
    vanish, faith is increased, strength is gathered, power prevails.
    Throughout the book, Frances Foulks reminds us to prepare, admonishes us
    to relax, helps us to concentrate when we pray. She offers practical, sage advice
    on how to do what we need to do most in our lives—pray. As she says in her
    Foreword, “The cry of the disciples to the Master, ‘Lord, teach us to pray’ is a cry
    uttered by each human heart, sometime, somewhere on the journey of life.”

    Title: Eternal Echoes: Exploring Our Hunger to Belong
    Author: ODONOHUE JOHN

    There is a divine restlessness in the human heart today, an eternal echo of longing that lives deep within us and never lets us settle for what we have or where we are. Now, in this exquisitely crafted, inspirational book, Irish poet and scholar John O'Donohue explores that most basic of human desires - the desire to belong. In Eternal Echoes we embark upon a journey of discovery into the heart of our post-modern world - a hungry, homeless world that suffers from a deep sense of isolation and fragmentation. With the thousand-year-old shelter of divine belonging now shattered, we seem to have lost our way in this magical, wondrous universe. Here, as we gain insight from a range of ancient beliefs and practices, we draw inspiration from Ireland's rich spiritual heritage of Celtic thought and imagination. It is a heritage of profound, mystical wisdom that will open pathways to peace and lead us to live with creativity and compassion the one life that has been given to us.

    ISBN: 9781982141714
    Title: Five Archetypes: Discover Your True Nature & Transform Your Life & Relationships
    Author: DAVIDSON CAREY

    Discover the personality archetypes within you and improve your life and relationships with a new self-guided system of personal transformation.

    In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) philosophy, the elements Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water are the foundation of how nature grows and evolves. They are believed to help us understand everything from illness and healing to the fundamental processes of child development--and they continue to inform Chinese medicine practice today. But as Ayurvedic nutritionist, reiki master, and Tournesol founder Carey Davidson demonstrates in this book, each of the five elements can also be seen as a personality archetype--and inside all of us is a unique blend of these archetypes that serves as a window into living a more fulfilling life on every level.

    In The Five Archetypes, Davidson explains that by knowing the personality traits associated with each type and using what she calls the Five Archetypes method, you can actually start to predict your behavioral patterns--not only with yourself but also with your friends, your romantic partner, your children, and even your colleagues. By practicing this method, you will also:

    -Learn how to exercise more control over behaviors that thwart your potential
    -Hone your self-awareness and self-regulation skills in the face of day-to-day stress
    -And understand what really makes people tick, so that you spend less time in stagnant relationships and more time in gratifying ones

    Through her study of the elements and the observations she's made in her work with individuals, couples, companies, parents, kids, and educators, Davidson has created a simplified and practical guide to harnessing the strengths of our five archetypes. Complete with an assessment designed to help you discover your primary, secondary, and lowest types, The Five Archetypes will not only teach you more about yourself and others but also transform your relationships and set you on the path to personal and interpersonal harmony.

    Author: RINPOCHE LAMA YESHE LOSAL

    Lama Yeshe didn't see a car until he was 15-years-old.In his quiet village, he and other children ran in fields with yaks and mastiffs. The rhythm of life was anchored by the pastoral cycles. Food was carefully apportioned and eaten together, everyone was family.The arrival of Chinese army cars one day in 1959 changed everything. In the wake of the deadly Tibetan Uprising, he escaped to India through the Himalayas to start over as a refugee. One of only 13 survivors out of 300 travellers, he spent the next few years in America, experiencing the excesses of the Woodstock generation before reforming in Europe.Now in his seventies and a leading monk at the Samye Ling monastery in Scotland - the first Buddhist centre in the West - Lama Yeshe casts a hopeful look back at his momentous life. From his learnings on self-compassion and discipline to his trials and tribulations with loss and failure, his poignant story mirrors our own struggles.Written with erudition and humour, From a Mountain in Tibet shines a light on how the most desperate of situations can help us to uncover vital life lessons and attain lasting peace and contentment.

    Title: God Argument: The Case Against Religion & for Humanism
    Author: GRAYLING A C

    What are the arguments for and against religion and religious belief--all of them--right across the range of reasons and motives that people have for being religious, and do they stand up to scrutiny? Can there be a clear, full statement of these arguments that once and for all will show what is at stake in this debate?
    Equally important: what is the alternative to religion as a view of the world and a foundation for morality? Is there a worldview and a code of life for thoughtful people--those who wish to live with intellectual integrity, based on reason, evidence, and a desire to do and be good--that does not interfere with people's right to their own beliefs and freedom of expression?
    In "The Case Against Religion," Anthony Grayling offers a definitive examination of these questions, and an in-depth exploration of the humanist outlook that recommends itself as the ethics of the genuinely reflective person.

    Author: HAYES MEGAN C

    Exploring the global dictionary, from common languages to obscure dialects, The Happiness Passport takes the reader on a joyful journey around the world seeking out the secrets of wellbeing.

    The wonderfully evocative words in this collection resonate with universal emotions: the deep longing for home conjured up by the Welsh word hiraeth, or the transportive ability of good storytelling captured in the Urdu goya. Yet at the same time each is deeply ingrained in its place of origin: long, dark Danish days encourage the warmth and cosiness of hygge, while the satisfied chatter after a sun-soaked meal - sombremesa - resonates uniquely with Spanish hospitality. These words are simultaneously all-inclusive and peculiar to place; they are on the tip of our tongue and yet not in our vocabulary.

    The Happiness Passport delves into this treasure trove of delights, examining the cultural context of each and the lessons that we can apply in our own lives to achieve greater contentment. A must-read for all those seeking a more balanced life, this beautiful guide features original illustrations that conjure up each elusive expression.

Wurlitzer--novelist, screenwriter, and Buddhist practitioner--travels with his wife, photographer Lynn Davis, on a photo assignment to the sacred sites of Thailand, Burma, and Cambodia. Heavy Westernization, sex clubs, aging hippies and expatriates, and political dissidents provide a vivid contrast to the peace that Wurlitzer and Davis seek, still reeling from the death of their son in a car accident. As Davis with her camera searches for a thread of meaning among the artifacts and relics of a more enlightened age, Wurlitzer grasps at the wisdom of the Buddhist teachings in an effort to assuage his grief. His journal chronicles the survival of age-old truths in a world gone mad.

    Title: Ikigai Discover Your Reason for Being
    Author: BARNES JUSTYN

    Embrace the Japanese concept of ikigai and discover a renewed sense of purpose. Be mindful of small pleasures each day to build a more enjoyable and fulfilling life. Keep mentally and physically active to ease the ageing process.
    &
    The Japanese term ikigai has no direct English translation but essentially means 'reason for living' or 'value in life'. The concept posits that a person's ikigai lies at the intersection of four interconnected aspects of life: what we love, what we're good at, what the world needs and what we can be paid for. Ikigai, therefore, is the ideal balance between our passion, mission, vocation and profession.
    &
    Ikigai is about making the most of every day, rooted in the belief that finding pleasure in many small things is the secret to a more rewarding life overall. While living in the here and now is key, the sense of purpose derived from pursuing ikigai bolsters our mental resilience to overcome setbacks and feel positive about the future.
    &
    This concise, easily accessible book offers readers practical advice to identify what really motivates them to get up and go every morning and how seeking their personal ikigai can improve their daily lives. Each of the tenets of ikigai is explained and examined, illustrated by real-life examples of their application and inspiring photographs.

    Title: Ikigai: The Japanese Secret to a Long & Happy Life
    Author: GARCIA HECTOR & MIRALLES FRANCESC

    Bring meaning and joy to all your days with this internationally bestselling guide to the Japanese concept of ikigai--the happiness of always being busy--as revealed by the daily habits of the world's longest-living people.
    &
    "Only& staying& active& will& make& you& want& to& live& a& hundred& years."& --Japanese proverb
    &
    According to the Japanese, everyone has an ikigai--a reason for living. And according to the residents of the Japanese village with the world's longest-living people, finding it is the key to a happier and longer life. Having a strong sense of ikigai--the place where passion, mission, vocation, and profession intersect--means that each day is infused with meaning. It's the reason we get up in the morning. It's also the reason many Japanese never really retire (in fact there's no word in Japanese that means retire in the sense it does in English): They remain active and work at what they enjoy, because they've found a real purpose in life--the happiness of always being busy.
    &
    In researching this book, the authors interviewed the residents of the Japanese village with the highest percentage of 100-year-olds--one of the world's Blue Zones. Ikigai reveals the secrets to their longevity and happiness: how they eat, how they move, how they work, how they foster collaboration and community, and--their best-kept secret--how they find the ikigai that brings satisfaction to their lives. And it provides practical tools to help you discover your own ikigai. Because who doesn't want to find happiness in every day?

    Author: BACH RICHARD

    We all have a 100 per cent chance of dying - eventually. But when are you most at risk? Which are the world's biggest killers? And what can you do to postpone the inevitable? Death - A Survival Guide offers a unique insight into the biggest threats to life and limb. This fascinating - and occasionally wry - look at dying surveys the top 100 causes of death from the most common such as heart disease, smoking and cancer to the less frequent, but equally deadly, tetanus, botulism and tuberculosis. You will also discover the probability of being hit by lightning, how you could actually die of a broken heart, the chances of surviving a flesh-eating superbug and how to avoid dying of boredom. Dr Sarah Brewer's expert commentary clearly explains how each death affects the body, who dies where and when as well as the warning signs, symptoms and risk factors that allow you to determine the chances of it happening to you. Each entry ends with 'How to avoid it' advice detailing the latest information on preventative measures, treatments and cures. Comprehensive, thought-provoking and often surprising, Death - A Survival Guide is the ultimate reference for anyone who wants to better understand death and dying - or for those who simply want to hold off meeting their maker for as long as possible.

    Author: RINPOCHE YONGEY MINGYUR

    "One of the most generous, beautiful, and essential books I've ever read - beautifully written, thoroughly engaging, so clear, so honest, so courageous and full of wisdom... This book has the potential to change the reader's life forever." George Saunders, author of Lincoln in the BardoYongey Mingyur Rinpoche's experience begins the night he has chosen to embark on a four-year wandering retreat, slipping past the monastery gates. Alone for the first time in his life, he sets out into the unknown. His initial motivation is to step away from his life of privilege and to explore the deepest, most hidden aspects of his being, but what he discovers throughout his retreat - about himself and about the world around us - comes to define his meditation practice and teaching.Just three weeks into his retreat, Rinpoche becomes deathly ill and his journey begins in earnest through this near-death experience. Moving, beautiful and suffused with local colour, In Love With the World is the story of two different kinds of death: that of the body and that of the ego, and how we can bridge these two experiences to live a better and more fulfilling life. Rinpoche's skilful and intimate account of his search for the self is a demonstration of how we can transform our dread of dying into joyful living.

    Title: In the Closet of the Vatican: Power, Homosexuality, Hypocrisy
    Author: MARTEL FREDERIC & WHITESIDE SHAUN (TRANSLATOR)


    The New York Times Bestseller

    "[An] earth-shaking exposé of clerical corruption." - National Catholic Reporter

    In the Closet of the Vatican exposes the rot at the heart of the Vatican and the Roman Catholic Church today. Now in a revised translation and with updated material, this brilliant piece of investigative writing is based on four years' authoritative research, including extensive interviews with those in power.


    The celibacy of priests, the condemnation of the use of contraceptives, the cover up of countless cases of sexual abuse, the resignation of Benedict XVI, misogyny among the clergy, the dramatic fall in Europe of the number of vocations to the priesthood, the plotting against Pope Francis--all these issues are clouded in mystery and secrecy.


    In the Closet of the Vatican is a book that reveals these secrets and penetrates this enigma. It derives from a system founded on a clerical culture of secrecy which starts in junior seminaries and continues right up to the Vatican itself. It is based on the double lives of priests and on extreme homophobia. The resulting schizophrenia in the Church is hard to fathom. But the more a prelate is homophobic, the more likely it is that he is himself gay.


    "Behind rigidity there is always something hidden, in many cases a double life." These are the words of Pope Francis himself and with them the Pope has unlocked the Closet.


    No one can claim to really understand the Catholic Church today until they have read this book. It reveals a truth that is extraordinary and disturbing.

    Title: In the Name of God: A History of Christian & Muslim Intolerance
    Author: O'GRADY SELINA


    In this groundbreaking book, Selina O'Grady examines how and why the post-Christian and the Islamic worlds came to be as tolerant or intolerant as they are. She asks whether tolerance can be expected to heal today's festering wound between these two worlds, or whether something deeper than tolerance is needed.

    Told through contemporary chronicles, stories and poems, Selina O'Grady takes the reader through the intertwined histories of the Muslim, Christian and Jewish persecutors and persecuted. From Umar, the seventh century Islamic caliph who laid down the rules for the treatment of religious minorities in what was becoming the greatest empire the world has ever known, to Magna Carta John who seriously considered converting to Islam; and from al-Wahhab, whose own brother thought he was illiterate and fanatical, but who created the religious-military alliance with the house of Saud that still survives today, to Europe's bloody Thirty Years war that wearied Europe of murderous inter-Christian violence but probably killed God in the process.

    This book is an essential guide to understanding Islam and the West today and the role of religion in the modern world.

    Title: Islam & the Future of Tolerance: A Dialogue
    Author: HARRIS SAM & NAWAZ MAAJID


    "A civil but honest dialogue... As illuminating as it is fascinating."
    --Ayaan Hirsi Ali


    Is Islam a religion of peace or war? Is it amenable to reform? Why do so many Muslims seem to be drawn to extremism? And what do words like jihadism and fundamentalism really mean? In a world riven by misunderstanding and violence, Sam Harris--a famous atheist--and Majid Nawaz--a former radical--demonstrate how two people with very different religious views can find common ground and invite you to join in an urgently needed conversation.


    "How refreshing to read an honest yet affectionate exchange between the Islamist-turned-liberal-Muslim Maajid Nawaz and the neuroscientist who advocates mindful atheism, Sam Harris... Their back-and-forth clarifies multiple confusions that plague the public conversation about Islam."
    --Irshad Manji, New York Times Book Review


    "It is sadly uncommon, in any era, to find dialogue based on facts and reason--but even more rarely are Muslim and non-Muslim intellectuals able to maintain critical distance on broad questions about Islam. Which makes Islam and the Future of Tolerance something of a unicorn... Most conversations about religion are marked by the inability of either side to listen, but here, at last, is a proper debate."
