    Title: Pilgrim's Regress
    Author: LEWIS C. S.

    One of C. S. Lewis' works of fiction, or more specifically allegory, this book is clearly modelled upon Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress, as Lewis cleverly satirizes different sections of the Church. Written within a year of Lewis' conversion, it characterises the various theological and temperamental leanings of the time. This brilliant and biting allegory has lost none of its freshness and theological profundity, as the pilgrims pass the City of Claptrap, the tableland of the High Anglicans and the far-off marsh of the Theosophists. As ever, Lewis says memorably in brief what would otherwise have demanded a full-length philosophy of religion.

    Author: CLEARY THOMAS

    This compact collection of Taoism's greatest masterpieces introduces its most fundamental teachings and reveals the essential spirit of Tao.

    From the time of its earliest sages in prehistoric China, Taoists have looked to the underlying Way of all things (the Tao) as the essential guide to life. For them, the patterns of nature revealed the answers to their deepest spiritual questions and provided the inspiration for their unique teachings. Over the centuries, Taoism has blossomed into a profound tradition with a variety of forms--all united by a single, core philosophy of radical simplicity and natural living. Today, Taoism is most widely known through the Tao-te Ching, yet its corpus of literature is vast--ranging from philosophical dialogues and essays to astonishing fables, legends, proverbs, and more. This compact collection of Taoism's greatest masterpieces introduces its most fundamental teachings and reveals the essential spirit of Tao.

    This book was previously published under the title The Taoism Reader.

    This volume includes:
    Tao-te Ching The foundational source of Taoist thought by the legendary Lao Tzu
    Chuang-tzu Philosophical dialogues from one of Taoism's most famous sages
    Huai-nan-tzu Teachings from the time of the Han dynasty on affairs of state, natural science, and Taoist psychology
    Wen-tzu Records of further sayings by Lao Tzu on the art of living
    Tales of Inner Meaning Fables, stories, and jokes from the Lieh-tzu and others on the subtleties of Taoist philosophy
    Sayings of Ancestor Lu Teachings from Lu Yen, a seminal figure in the founding of the Complete Reality school of Taoism and master synthesizer of China's classic spiritual traditions

    Author: TOLLE ECKHART

    Eckhart Tolle is one of today's most inspiring teachers. In THE POWER OF NOW, a word-of-mouth bestselling phenomenon since its first publication, the author describes his transition from despair to self-realisation soon after his twenty-ninth birthday. Tolle took another ten years to understand this transformation, during which time he evolved a philosophy that has parallels in Buddhism, relaxation techniques and meditation theory but is also eminently practical. In THE POWER OF NOW he shows readers how to recognise themselves as the creators of their own pain, and how to have a pain-free existence by living fully in the present. Accessing the deepest self, the true self, can be learned, he says, by freeing ourselves from the conflicting, unreasonable demands of the mind and living 'present, fully and intensely, in the Now'.

    Author: FALCK SONJA


    What fascinates us about intelligence? How does intelligence impact our daily lives? Why do we sometimes fear intelligence?



    Human intelligence is a vital resource, yet the study of it is pervaded by neglect and misconceptions. The Psychology of Intelligence helps make sense of the contradictory social attitudes and practices in relation to intelligence that we have seen over the decades, from the idea that it drove eugenicist policies and actions in the past, to our current backlash against "experts" and critical thinking. Showing how our approach to intelligence impacts our everyday lives in educational, occupational, medical, and legal settings, the book asks if it is possible to lift the taboo and move beyond the prejudices surrounding intelligence.



    Challenging popular assumptions, The Psychology of Intelligence encourages us to face intelligence in ourselves and others as an important fact of life that we can all benefit from embracing more openly.

    Author: BRACH TARA

    "Believing that something is wrong with us is a deep and tenacious suffering," says Tara Brach at the start of this illuminating book. This suffering emerges in crippling self-judgments and conflicts in our relationships, in addictions and perfectionism, in loneliness and overwork all the forces that keep our lives constricted and unfulfilled. Radical Acceptance offers a path to freedom, including the day-to-day practical guidance developed over Dr. Brach's twenty years of work with therapy clients and Buddhist students.Writing with great warmth and clarity, Tara Brach brings her teachings alive through personal stories and case histories, fresh interpretations of Buddhist tales, and guided meditations. Step by step, she leads us to trust our innate goodness, showing how we can develop the balance of clear-sightedness and compassion that is the essence of Radical Acceptance. Radical Acceptance does not mean self-indulgence or passivity. Instead it empowers genuine change: healing fear and shame and helping to build loving, authentic relationships. When we stop being at war with ourselves, we are free to live fully every precious moment of our lives."

    Author: ARMSTRONG KAREN

    'Because 'God' is infinite, nobody can have the last word.'

    What is this thing, religion, which has supposedly been the cause of bloodshed and warring for centuries? What is 'God' and do we need 'Him' in our modern world? Karen Armstrong, bestselling author and one of the world's leading writers on religious affairs, has a refreshing and startling way of looking again at these questions. God is not a being to be 'believed in' as a child believes in Santa Claus; religion is not a story to be proven true or false, but a discipline akin to music or art that answers a deeply human need, and can teach us to discover new capacities of mind and heart.

    Author: THE SCHOOL OF LIFE


    Many of us find ourselves in the odd situation of not believing in religion--but nevertheless being interested in having a spiritual life. We may enjoy religious art and architecture, music, and community, and even some of the rituals--while being unable to believe in divine commandments or the existence of a higher being.


    This book is about those feelings and what we might do about them. The School of Life is a secular organization fascinated by the gaps left in modern society by the gradual disappearance of religion. We're interested in how hard it is to find a sense of community, how rituals are dying out, and how much we sometimes crave the solemn quiet you find in religious buildings, as well as the comfort offered by the belief in a deity.


    This book lays out how we might absorb the best lessons of religion, update them for our times and incorporate them into our daily lives and societies--without taking on the theological or doctrinal elements. This book tries to rescue some of what remains wise and useful from all that no longer seems (to many of us) to be quite true.

    Featuring a foreword by Oprah Winfrey and a preface by Maya Angelou, the twenty-fifth anniversary edition of Gary Zukav's #1 New York Times bestselling classic also contains a new introduction by the author and resources for deeper study. With the same masterful skill he used to demystify scientific abstraction and quantum physics in the award-winning The Dancing Wu Li Masters, Gary Zukav takes us on a penetrating exploration of the next phase in humanity's evolution. With lucidity and elegance, Zukav explains that we are evolving from a species that uses power as the ability to manipulate and control--external power--into a species that understands power as the alignment of the personality with the soul--authentic power. Our evolution requires each of us to make the values of the soul our own: harmony, cooperation, sharing, and reverence for Life. With his scientist's eye and philosopher's heart, Zukav shows how infusing our actions with compassion and trust gives them meaning and purpose. He illustrates how the emerging values of the spirit are changing marriages into soulful partnerships, psychology into thoughtful analysis, and deeply affecting our everyday lives. A new species is being born inside each of us and The Seat of the Soul offers enlightening details about this birth, what it means, and how we can participate in it joyfully.

    Are you a Highly Sensitive Person? If so, you probably find the world to be an overwhelming place. You might struggle with loud, bright or busy situations - you need calm, quiet environments. Your senses are frequently overstimulated and you are a true empath, feeling the pain of others very deeply, and putting the needs of those around you above your own.

    Deborah Ward is a Highly Sensitive Person, and her blog, 'Sense and Sensitivity' (Psychology Today), has helped thousands of readers to better understand and manage their HSP personality traits. In this absorbing blend of memoir and practical guide, she shares her journey as an HSP from childhood to adulthood and across a number of different contexts, from managing friendships to creating the right professional environment. Deborah's experiences with overstimulation, tackling low self-esteem, socialising, forming relationships and finding comfort in creativity and the natural world will help you to embrace the challenges you face yourself as an HSP. Each chapter has a list of practical suggestions that will inform, console, reassure and inspire you to understand who you are, what you need, and to feel good about yourself.

    As you read Sense and Sensitivity you will come to understand it's not your destiny to live quietly hiding in fear. Nor is it your duty to try to act like everyone else. None of us is meant to try to suppress our true nature. Being highly sensitive can be challenging, but it can also be a gift.

    Title: Seven Types of Atheism
    Author: GRAY JOHN


    From the provocative author of Straw Dogs comes an incisive, surprising intervention in the political and scientific debate over religion and atheism


    When you explore older atheisms, you will find that some of your firmest convictions―secular or religious―are highly questionable. If this prospect disturbs you, what you are looking for may be freedom from thought.


    For a generation now, public debate has been corroded by a shrill, narrow derision of religion in the name of an often vaguely understood "science." John Gray's stimulating and enjoyable new book, Seven Types of Atheism, describes the complex, dynamic world of older atheisms, a tradition that is, he writes, in many ways intertwined with and as rich as religion itself.


    Along a spectrum that ranges from the convictions of "God-haters" like the Marquis de Sade to the mysticism of Arthur Schopenhauer, from Bertrand Russell's search for truth in mathematics to secular political religions like Jacobinism and Nazism, Gray explores the various ways great minds have attempted to understand the questions of salvation, purpose, progress, and evil. The result is a book that sheds an extraordinary light on what it is to be human.

Siddhartha blends in with the world, showing the reader the beauty and intricacies of the mind, nature, and his experiences on the path to enlightenment. Sherab Chodzin Kohn's flowing, poetic translation conveys the philosophical and spiritual nuances of Hesse's text, paying special attention to the qualities of meditative experience. Also included is an extensive introduction by Paul W. Morris that discusses the impact "Siddhartha" has had on American culture.

    Author: JOUSTRA JOOST

    An engaging and accessible account of how sin has been depicted in European art for centuries

    The depiction of sin has been fundamental to European visual culture for hundreds of years, especially--but not only--in Christian art. Addressing the mutable and often ambiguous representation of sin, this book highlights its theological underpinnings, cultural afterlife, and contradictory and controversial aspects from the 15th to the 21st century. Drawing on paintings from the National Gallery and elsewhere, including pictures by Cranach, Gossaert, and Velázquez, as well as contemporary art and sculpture, the author explores complex theological ideas--Original Sin, the Immaculate Conception, and confession, for example--that show familiar human behavior through moralizing or seductive images; in the process, Sin shows how art can blur the boundaries between our modern categories, religious and secular.

    Title: Story of Buddhism A Concise Guide to Its History & Teachings
    Author: LOPEZ DONALD S


    • How and when did the many schools of Buddhism emerge?
    • How does the historical figure of Siddartha Guatama relate to the many teachings that are presented in his name?
    • Did Buddhism modify the cultures to which it was introduced, or did they modify Buddhism?

    Leading Buddhist scholar Donald S. Lopez Jr. explores the origins of this 2,500-year-old religion and traces its major developments up to the present, focusing not only on the essential elemenmts common to all schools of Buddhism but also revealing the differences among the major traditions. Beginning with the creation and structure of the Buddhist universe, Lopez explores the life of the Buddha, the core Buddhist tenets, and the development of the monastic life and lay practices. Combining brilliant scholarship with fascinating stories -- contemporary and historical, sometimes miraculous, sometimes humorous -- this rich and absorbing volume presents a fresh and expert history of Buddhism and Buddhist life.

    Title: Such Is Life: a Close Encounter With Ecclesiastes
    Author: GEERING LLOYD

    Though 23 centuries have passed since a Jewish sage calling himself the Proclaimer (Ecclesiastes) set down his thoughts about life, they are strangely in tune with today's secular age. Lloyd Geering has ingeniously brought Ecclesiastes to life in a series of dialogues with him, which show that, in today's terminology, Ecclesiastes was a free-thinker, a humanist and an existentialist. In fact, this biblical heretic is at odds with the rest of the Bible - he finds no discernible thread of purpose in life or the universe, and proposes that though Nature operates in cycles, much of human life is determined by sheer chance. The role of the sage, as Ecclesiastes saw it, was not to pass on gems of eternal wisdom, but to goad us to think things out for ourselves in our search for meaning.

    Author: ERIKSON THOMAS


    Do you ever think you're the only one making any sense? Or tried to reason with your partner with disastrous results? Do long, rambling answers drive you crazy? Or does your colleague's abrasive manner get your back up?
    You are not alone. After a disastrous meeting with a highly successful entrepreneur, who was genuinely convinced he was 'surrounded by idiots', communication expert and bestselling author, Thomas Erikson dedicated himself to understanding how people function and why we often struggle to connect with certain types of people.
    Originally published in Swedish in 2014 as Omgiven Av Idioter, Erikon's Surrounded by Idiots is already an international phenomenon, selling over 1.5 million copies worldwide, of which over 750,000 copies have been sold in Sweden alone. It offers a simple, yet ground-breaking method for assessing the personalities of people we communicate with - in and out of the office - based on four personality types (Red, Blue, Green and Yellow), and provides insights into how we can adjust the way(s) we speak and share information.
    Erikson will help you understand yourself better, hone communication and social skills, handle conflict with confidence, improve dynamics with your boss and team, and get the best out of the people you deal with and manage. He also shares simple tricks on body language, improving written communication and advice on when to back away or when to push on, and when to speak up or indeed shut up. Packed with 'aha!' and 'oh no!' moments, Surrounded by Idiots will help you understand and influence those around you, even people you currently think are beyond all comprehension.
    And with a bit of luck you can also be confident that the idiot out there isn't you!

    Title: Tao Teh Ching
    Author: TZU LAO ; WU JOHN C H (TRANSLATOR)

    A lucid translation of the well-known Taoist classic by a leading scholar--now in a Shambhala Pocket Library edition.

    Written more than two thousand years ago, the Tao Teh Ching is part poetry and part paradox, yet always dynamic and profound. Today, Lao Tzu's words are as useful in mastering the arts of leadership in business and politics as they are in developing a sense of balance and harmony in everyday life. To follow the Tao--or Way of all things--and realize their true nature is to embody humility, spontaneity, and generosity.

    This book is part of the Shambhala Pocket Library series.

    The Shambhala Pocket Library is a collection of short, portable teachings from notable figures across religious traditions and classic texts. The covers in this series are rendered by Colorado artist Robert Spellman.

    Title: Theology & Religion: Why It Matters
    Author: WARD GRAHAM


    Graham Ward argues that the study of theology and religion, as a single academic discipline, plays a vital role in helping us to understand politics, world affairs, and the nature of humanity itself. Religion can be used to justify inhumane actions, but it also feeds dreams, inspires hopes, and shapes aspirations. By invoking a sense of wonder about the natural world, religion can promote scientific discoveries, and by focusing on shared experiences, religion helps to bind societies together. Some scientists now believe that religious feeling might be hard-wired into our DNA, a fundamental aspect of what makes us human. Because religion is rooted in the imagination itself, its study involves staring into the profundities of who we are. Religion will not go away, so it needs to be understood.

    Title: Think Like a Monk: Train Your Mind for Peace & Purpose Every Day
    Author: SHETTY JAY

    Jay Shetty, social media superstar and host of the #1 podcast On Purpose, distills the timeless wisdom he learned as a monk into practical steps anyone can take every day to live a less anxious, more meaningful life.

    Shetty writes, "I grew up in a family where you could become one of three things: a doctor, a lawyer, or a failure. My family was convinced I had chosen option three. Instead of attending my college graduation ceremony, I headed to India to become a monk, to meditate every day for 4-8 hours and devote my life to helping others."

    After three years, one of his teachers told him that he would have more impact on the world if he left the monk's path to share his experience and wisdom with others. Heavily in debt, and with no recognizable skills on his resume, he moved back home to north London with his parents. Shetty reconnected with old school friends--many working for some of the world's largest corporations--who were experiencing tremendous stress, pressure, and unhappiness, and they invited Shetty to coach them on wellbeing, purpose, and mindfulness.

    Since then, Shetty has become one of the world's most popular influencers. In 2017, he was named in the Forbes magazine 30-under-30 for being a game-changer in the world of media. In 2018, he had the #1 video on Facebook with over 360 million views. His social media following totals over 35 million, he has produced over 400 viral videos which have amassed more than 5 billion views, and his podcast, On Purpose, is consistently ranked the world's #1 Health and Wellness podcast.

    In this inspiring, empowering book, Shetty draws on his time as a monk in the Hindu tradition to show us how we can clear the roadblocks to our potential and power. Drawing on ancient wisdom and his own rich experiences in the ashram, Think Like a Monk reveals how to overcome negative thoughts and habits to access the calm and purpose that lie within all of us.

    The lessons monks learn are profound but often abstract. Shetty transforms them into advice and exercises we can all apply to reduce stress, sharpen focus, improve relationships, identify our hidden abilities, increase self-discipline, and give the gifts we find in ourselves to the world. Shetty proves that everyone can--and should--think like a monk.
