The astonishing international bestseller that chronicles how a brain scientist's own stroke led to enlightenment. On the morning of the 10th December 1996, Jill Bolte Taylor, a thirty-seven-year-old Harvard-trained brain scientist experienced a massive stroke when a blood vessel exploded in the left side of her brain. A neuroanatomist by profession, she observed her own mind completely deteriorate to the point that she lost the ability to walk, talk, read, write, or recall any of her life, all within the space of four hours. As the damaged left side of her brain - the rational, logical, detail and time-oriented side - swung in an out of function, Taylor alternated between two distinct and opposite realities: the euphoric Nirvana of the intuitive and emotional right brain, in which she felt a sense of complete well-being and peace; and the logical left brain, that realized Jill was having a stroke and enabled her to seek help before she was lost completely. In My Stroke of Insight: A Brain Scientist's Personal Journey, Taylor brings to light a new perspective on the brain and its capacity for recovery that she gained through the intimate experience of awakening her own injured mind. The journey to recovery took eight years for Jill to feel completely healed. Using her knowledge of how the brain works, her respect for the cells composing her human form, and an amazing mother, Taylor completely repaired her mind and recalibrated her understanding of the world according to the insight gained from her right brain that December morning.

In Together in the Space Between, author Greg Kinsch compiles information from various disciplines not usually seen as compatible by postindustrial modern man. It discusses how the world and universe operate and how that knowledge can be used to help move the human species toward peace on earth. He begins with the premise that current paradigms won’t work in the coming years because the exponential growth and decay that underlie their functioning is unsustainable. He goes on to say that our product-based way and view of life has had a devastating effect on our understanding of process in our lives. Kinsch goes to the root of the problem and discusses: How the workings of our brain show our perceptions may be unreliable and we may have some control over our own perceptions of happiness The phenomenon of near-death experiences and why they occur more frequently in the modern age Why man is progressing toward a higher consciousness and that these experiences are part of the evolutionary process The zero-point field, a part of quantum physics showing that what seems impossible is capable of being studied and researched World religions and the role they’ve played in the world to this point After admitting the failure of religion to remain open to truth in others, Together in the Space Between offers hope through Kinsch’s unique interpretation of the Eucharist. He offers a survival guide to adapt to the changes that need to be made and are certainly coming.

My Cosmic Stroke is a remarkable true story shared by Ashima Kahrs, who at the tender age of twenty-one suffered a debilitating stroke. This narrative explores the personal trials, paralyzing fears, and conversations with death that were a part of the unfolding. Learning to embrace the grace of humility, the mystical gifts of compassion, and the potentials of treatment possibilities are explored. With her training as a speech-language pathologist, Kahrs provides a look at strokes from a medical professional's inside view through a unique blend of storytelling, humor, and humility. Kahrs also explores multiple alternative healing options that continue to enrich the healing process to this day. Lessons in humility and gratitude fill this narrative as deeper understanding unfolds. Divided into four parts entitled "The Wake Up Call," "Unfolding Wisdom," "The Integration Begins," and "Unlimited Potentials," these deeply personal tales bring clarity to a wide range of complex issues as they follow Kahrs's extraordinary-if erratic-journey, and the lessons she gained through gentle guidance and patience. These colorful, yet overwhelming, events encourage her to learn and explore the wisdom afforded her as her ongoing recovery exceeds expectations. In the vein of Jill Bolte Taylor's My Stroke of Insight: A Brain Scientist's Personal Journey, this book is for health professionals and laymen alike who are curious about the broad range of available options for treating those with neurological issues-and who want to embrace the evolving nature of wellness.

The first book by a respected journalist on Nearing Death Awareness—similar to Near-Death Experience—this “fascinating” (Kirkus Reviews) exploration brings “humor, sympathy, and keen critical intelligence to a topic that is all too often off-limits” (Ptolemy Tompkins, collaborator with Eben Alexander on Proof of Heaven). People everywhere carry with them extraordinary, deeply comforting experiences that arrived at the moment when they most needed relief: when they lost a loved one. These experiences can include clear messages from beyond, profound and vividly beautiful visions, mysterious connections and spiritual awareness, foreknowledge of a loved one’s passing—all of which evade explanation by science and logic. Most people keep these transcendent experiences secret for fear they will be discounted by hyperrational scrutiny. Yet these very common occurrences have the power to console, comfort, and even transform our understanding of life and death. Prompted by her family’s surprising, profound experiences around the death of her father and her sister, reporter Patricia Pearson sets out on an open-minded inquiry, a rare journalistic investigation of Nearing Death Awareness, which Anne Rice praises as “substantive, eloquent, and worthwhile.” Opening Heaven’s Door offers deeply affecting stories of messages from the dying and the dead in a fascinating work of investigative journalism, pointing to new scientific explanations that give these luminous moments the importance felt by those who experience them. Pearson also delves into out-of-body and near-death experiences, examining stories and research to make sense of these related but distinct categories. Challenging current assumptions about what we know and what we are still unable to explain, Opening Heaven’s Door will forever alter your perceptions of the nature of life and death.

This is the paperback edition of 'The Way We're Working Isn't Working'. Through his years of intensive work consulting to companies including Procter & Gamble, Sony, Toyota, Microsoft, Ford and Ernst & Young, with his firm The Energy Project, Schwartz has developed a powerful program for changing the way we are working that greatly boosts our engagement and our satisfication with our work and increases our performance. In this book he marshalls a wide range of powerful evidence from business research and psychology that shows that the current model of work is not only not optimal, it is specfically counter-productive because it saps us of our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual energy. In order for us to perform at our best, we must make a set of key changes in our work lives -- and in order to develop the full potential of their work force, our managers and companies must institute changes that will provide us with the regular physical renewal, emotional reward, mental focus and stimulation; and sense of purpose and significance that we need.

How and why does faith so often fade away? Where does it go, and what do you hold on to when it is gone? Between the believer and the unbeliever lies a sort of communicational void—a cultural gap—usually marked by silence or, alternatively, by rage. This extended essay draws on history, literature, and theology as well as personal experience in an attempt to give some kind of account of the demise of belief in terms that a believer can perhaps understand and, in the process, to cover some of the principal reasons why the arguments usually put forward to buttress faith prove to be without force. In the end, faith can enrich a person’s life only at the expense of the illusions on which it is based.
