To change our life lies in a disarming experience of our own body. This book sets out on a journey to revolutionise the understanding of what our body is and does, so as to reorient our approach to life. It is a return-journey to an original awareness, that acknowledges the ability of the body to co-create reality, the evidence of which has been disclosed from the ancient times to the present day. We let go of our body as a given and bounded object, in order to experience ourselves as embodiment: the process through which we become our own body, along with the World that we experience and make sense of. We are not given a body, but we become one, just as reality is not given, but becomes, along with our biological, emotional, and cognitive responsiveness to it. We are asked to sense our own body, to feel it, to listen to its innate intelligence, which breaks through the illusions of separateness between inner and outer. Awareness of embodiment is now an intimate and collective urgency. There is no possibility for a free World until we become a free body. We are all a human body; therefore, each of us has the ability to harness our innate process of embodiment, and unlock the potential for regenerating our own becoming along with a World through which we can survive and thrive.

The concept of environmental justice has offered a new direction for social movements and public policy in recent decades, and researchers worldwide now position social equity as a prerequisite for sustainability. Yet the relationship between social equity and environmental sustainability has been little studied in Canada. Speaking for Ourselves draws together Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal scholars and activists who bring equity issues to the forefront by considering environmental justice from multiple perspectives and in specifically Canadian contexts.

Academic philosophy may have lost its audience, but the traditional subjects of philosophy—love, death, justice, knowledge, and faith—remain as compelling as ever. To reach a new generation, Paul W. Kahn argues that philosophy must take up these fundamental concerns as we find them in contemporary culture. He demonstrates how this can be achieved through a turn to popular film. Discussing such well-known movies as Forrest Gump (1994), The American President (1995), The Matrix (1999), Memento (2000), The History of Violence (2005), Gran Torino (2008), The Dark Knight (2008), The Road (2009), and Avatar (2009), Kahn explores powerful archetypes and their hold on us. His inquiry proceeds in two parts. First, he uses film to explore the nature of action and interpretation, arguing that narrative is the critical concept for understanding both. Second, he explores the narratives of politics, family, and faith as they appear in popular films. Engaging with genres as diverse as romantic comedy, slasher film, and pornography, Kahn explores the social imaginary through which we create and maintain a meaningful world. He finds in popular films a new setting for a philosophical inquiry into the timeless themes of sacrifice, innocence, rebirth, law, and love.

Isaiah 28:9-10 informs us as to whom the real teacher is, "Whom shall He teach knowledge? And whom shall He make to understand doctrine? Them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little..." This is how we will grow in spiritual wisdom, knowledge and understanding of our KINGS completed work of the cross we are to walk by. This understanding the Holy Spirit will make alive to our level of understanding to do His will if we are diligently seeking His face for spiritual truth only the Holy Spirit can reveal truth from the written seed word He makes alive to us. This written word is the seed of GOD the Father's truths, but the Spirit must make it alive to our level of understanding or it is dead letter understanding, carnality, we try to keep and cannot. His spiritual truths can only come to us at our level of understanding as the Spirit works in us to complete our growth He started in us as we learn to be patient and obedient sons to His voice. Galatians 3:2-3, "This only would I learn of you, received you the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now made perfect by the flesh?" Philippians 1:6, "Being confident of this very thing, that He which has begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Chris..." Galatians 6:9, "And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not."

Humble Pie

Take a quick look around – politicians, entertainers, sports figures, and even our own circles of family and friends: Humble pie is not on the menu. It’s a me-first society that turns pride into a virtue and humility into a vice. But Christians – especially those who follow the Rule of St. Benedict – are encouraged to embrace humility as a virtue that leads them closer to Christ. And in this upside-down Benedictine world, we reach humility not by descending to the depths but by climbing, joyfully, to the top of a ladder. In this honest, funny, touching book, Carol Bonomo, a Benedictine oblate – a person vowed to live according to the fourth-century Rule – reconciles the conflict between the world’s call and Benedict’s more gentle admonition as she examines the twelve rungs on Benedict’s ladder against the backdrop of the liturgical year. From the first rung, obedience, during Advent, to the twelfth, constancy, during the feast of All Saints, Bonomo studies what it means for a contemporary Christian to climb the ladder of humility that leads to perfect, fearless love. Bonomo, with a light hand and a sense of humor, takes readers along on her down-to-earth spiritual adventure.
