What preachers preach is not necessarily what hearers hear. Have you ever wondered why some hearers are affected by a sermon but not others? The issue may not necessarily be the content or delivery of the message. It may be how your hearers' brains process what you say. Modern neuroscience illuminates how our brains understand and hear sermons. Verbal stimuli can be accepted or rejected depending on the context of how they are received. The brain processes new information differently than information that reinforces already-held beliefs. To have long-term effect, new information must connect with previous memory. Psychologist, physician and preacher Richard Cox shows that better understanding of the brain can help preachers be more effective in their preaching. Intentional, purposeful preaching can actually produce new neural pathways that change how the brain thinks and how its owner acts. Our brains are intimately connected with how our bodies work, especially in how brain stimuli produce behavioral responses and how people experience comfort and healing in times of pain. God is at work in our brains to enable his people to hear him. Preach with the brain in mind, and help your hearers grow in mental, physical and spiritual health.
This special bound issue of American Quarterly offers a re-reading of the narrative of U.S. technologies as we move beyond celebrations of exceptional tinkerers and a deterministic machine-driven sense of progress to a more complex understanding of the opportunities and responsibilities that befall a nation that interweaves its identities, labors, and creative cultures with its machines.
Neediness and emotional unavailability are two sides of the same coin because both are based on a lack of self love, a fear of love and the hurt that love can engender due to the vulnerability that being in love generally evokes. A person may live out one side of the coin (neediness) in several relationships and then - in a new relationship - may find him or herself living out the other side of the coin (emotional unavailability). Emotional unavailability and neediness do not tend to be deliberate because there is never anything consciously deliberate about the way a defense mechanism arises in childhood. A man who refuses to commit should not blithely be judged as being manipulative or callous although on the surface he may very well appear to be so. Furthermore, the older he gets, the more of a history of this nature he acquires, and hence the more those who sit in judgement reach the conclusion that they are right. The same could, of course, be said about the emotionally unavailable woman. Another case in point: a woman whose neediness may appear as emotionally manipulative, generally also does not behave this way in a deliberate fashion. And again, the same could be said about the needy man. This book dissects the causes of these defense mechanisms, paving the road - for those who wish to change the inner landscape of their emotional constraints - to live and be able to love more freely.
More exciting than any other kind of relationship you have ever known, spiritual partnership is a path, a Tao, available to you so that you may transform your life. Spiritual partnership becomes background music to daily life allowing you to enhance the process of your growth and evolution. This ground-breaking book addresses: • relationship patterns that hold you back from a truly fulfilled life • the strong connection between sexuality and spiritual partnership • communication leading to true connection & lasting transformation of your relationship It is precisely at the problematic crossroads so often encountered in relationships that we are offered the opportunity to create a new foundation based on mutual complementarity rather than need; a free relationship between two people who want to be together, rather than two people who need to be together. Needing another, we are told, is the measure of love, but for a fully conscious individual nothing could be further from the truth. And therein lies part of the secret and healing power of spiritual partnerships. Praise for The Tao of Spiritual Partnership “All humans seek the illusive touch of another's Soul, which opens us to the sense of belonging to something bigger than the self. Dr. Kortsch has given us the true "tao" of relationship in this brilliant exploration of emotional tapestry. We will be grateful for this illumination of spiritual partnership for generations to come." Chris Griscom: Spiritual Leader, Author “Eloquently and comprehensive, showing how your primary love relationship may be a sacred vessel that transports you and your partner to a place of mutual healing and expansion.” Robert Schwartz: Author of Your Soul's Gift: The Healing Power of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born "The Tao of Spiritual Partnership is a unique blend of wit and wisdom; Dr. Kortsch encourages us to take responsibility for our relationships, while recognizing and seizing the opportunities for our own personal spiritual growth." William Buhlman, Author of Adventures Beyond the Body "The Tao of Spiritual Partnership is an excellent guide to making your relationships blossom. Dr. Kortsch deftly shows the way to satisfying interactions with the loves of your life." Jim Wawro, Author of Awakening Counsel: A Practical Guide to Creating the Life You Want to Live. "Gabriella Kortsch takes us through a journey that covers most aspects of human relationships from new-born to adult, leading us into the power of spiritual partnerships. The importance of fulfillment of a life well-lived through understanding and practicing self-love is paramount and candidly expressed in this one-of-a-kind book. The promise "to love without needing" is profoundly delivered!" ALI R. RODRIGUEZ: Business Coach Strategist, Co-Author of Mastering the Art of Success with Les Brown and Jack Canfield
You are meant to become the best version of yourself; that is your dharma. You owe this not to the world, but to yourself. How can you reinvent yourself inside out when the lightness of being is replaced by the heaviness of it all? When most of your material boxes have been checked, how to embrace the void and refuel yourself? Author Jay Kumar Hariharan delves into years of asking himself and others questions on what constitutes ‘success’ and ‘meaning’. Why do many of us suffer from poverty in the midst of abundance? There is a vast need to reflect and be conscious of choices and dreams instead of accepting the status quo. Jay delivers interesting insights by connecting the dots and drawing patterns between highly disparate influences. Interesting anecdotes and stories ensure that jargon and ‘how to’ anchors are kept at bay. This book is a turbo-charged journey into the world of modern day corporate warriors. But more importantly, it is about the meaning of Being over Doing. These pages are for all those who have climbed the mountain and suddenly feel the on-set of ennui. You are not alone.

When the Master of the city of New Orleans asks Jane to improve security for a future visit from a delegation of European vampires, she names an exorbitant price—and Leo is willing to pay.

There’s a vicious creature stalking the streets of New Orleans, and its agenda seems to be ripping Leo and her to pieces. Now Jane just has to figure out how to kill something she can’t even see….
Digital and electronic technologies that act as extensions of our bodies and minds are changing how we live, think, act, and write. Some welcome these developments as bringing humans closer to unified consciousness and eternal life. Others worry that invasive globalized technologies threaten to destroy the self and the world. Whether feared or desired, these innovations provoke emotions that have long fueled the religious imagination, suggesting the presence of a latent spirituality in an era mistakenly deemed secular and posthuman. William Gaddis, Richard Powers, Mark Danielewski, and Don DeLillo are American authors who explore this phenomenon thoroughly in their work. Engaging the works of each in conversation, Mark C. Taylor discusses their sophisticated representations of new media, communications, information, and virtual technologies and their transformative effects on the self and society. He focuses on Gaddis's The Recognitions, Powers's Plowing the Dark, Danielewski's House of Leaves, and DeLillo's Underworld, following the interplay of technology and religion in their narratives and their imagining of the transition from human to posthuman states. Their challenging ideas and inventive styles reveal the fascinating ways religious interests affect emerging technologies and how, in turn, these technologies guide spiritual aspirations. To read these novels from this perspective is to see them and the world anew.
A groundbreaking program to help women create a habit of building wealth—from renowned financial therapist Barbara Huson (formerly Barbara Stanny) The men in her life had always handled Barbara Huson’s money: First her father (the “R” of H&R Block), and then her husband, a stockbroker who turned out to be a compulsive gambler. When tax bills arrived for over $1m for his illegal deals, her ex left the country, her father refused to help, and Huson—who’d always been “scared and intimidated by money”—realized she had to grow up financially, fast. Since that dramatic financial wake-up call, Huson has devoted herself to learning everything there is to know about women and money, and in Rewire for Wealth she goes to the very core of the disconnect between the two: According to multiple studies, women’s and men’s brains process information differently—and that has a profound effect when it comes to money. (Men, for example, view investing as a challenge; women see it as a threat.) Fortunately, you can “un-learn” previous bad lessons—and train your brain to process differently. In Rewire for Wealth, Huson offers a proven and integrative approach to re-wiring your brain. Using the latest neuroscience, psychology, and mind-training techniques with original research that includes more than 20 years of hard-won financial expertise, she shows you how to quickly but methodically eliminate maladaptive financial behaviors, and expand your ability to build wealth. By repeatedly applying a practical three-step formula—recognize, reframe, and respond differently—old brain circuits become weaker and new ones grow stronger, paving the way to a more confident approach to wealth building. You may never get a financial wake-up call as dramatic as Huson’s, but the real, positive, and life-changing power to take charge, now, is at your fingertips.

True stories of transitioning from medical school classrooms to the realities of the hospital: “Moving, eloquent, and often unforgettable” (Atul Gawande, MD). After years of practice, doctors can sometimes seem aloof, uncaring, and hurried. What goes on in their minds? Were they always like that, or has their work changed them? And how do some physicians manage to retain their warmth and humanity over the course of a long career? This “thoughtful and illuminating” book takes us into the day-to-day lives of third-year medical students at an Ivy League school—just starting out in their profession and dealing with patients face-to-face for the first time (Publishers Weekly). In their own words, more than forty of them reveal what it’s really like to enter this field, having their principles of scientific rigor and idealism tested as they cope with real people and real crises in real time. This doctor’s-eye-view of the dramas—and occasional comedies—of the world of health care offers fascinating insights about clinical medicine and a behind-the-scenes look at a job that can range from repetitive routines to life-and-death decisions at any given moment. These stories “offer a unique vantage on illness, life, and struggle—capturing in vivid glimpses that crucial moment in a doctor’s life when one transitions from outsider to insider” (Atul Gawande, MD, New York Times–bestselling author of Being Mortal). “Thoughtful and illuminating.” —Publishers Weekly

ACIM, the Fun Version! A real-world rewrite of the lessons of A Course in Miracles by the #1 New York Times best-selling author of E-Squared. A Course in Miracles is profound, deeply moving, and as boring to read as a bookshelf assembly manual. Ask for a show of hands at any self-help gathering, and 95 percent will happily admit to owning the dense blue book that's a famous resource for spiritual transformation. Ask the obvious follow-up, "How many have actually read it?" and all but a smattering of hands go down. It's as if everyone wants the miracles, the forgiveness, and the mind shifts, but they just can't bear its ponderous heaviness. Pam Grout to the rescue! Her new book is for all those still struggling with the Course. Grout offers a modern-day rewrite of the 365-lesson workbook-the text at the heart of the Course. Unlike the original, it's user-friendly, accessible and easy for everyone to understand. In daily lessons with titles like "The Home Depot of Spiritual Practices" and "Transcending the Chatty Asshat in My Head," Grout drills down to the Course's essential message and meaning, grounding it in the context of everyday life in a way that's bound to stick. The lessons here blend eternal truths with pop culture and personal stories that are laugh-out-loud funny and deeply soul-stirring, often at the same time. You won't be tempted to use this Course in Miracles as a doorstop. You'll want to use it, every day, to change your life.
