A man, his dog, and a long walk can lead to unexpected discoveries. In the tradition of many literary walkers, David W. Berner sets out on foot hoping to reexamine his life, look back and forward, and most importantly, through the help of his young dog, Sam, try to find harmony in new beginnings and the uncertainties of the present. In a series of chapters, each dedicated to one walk during a summer of hiking, the author finds that it is his beloved pet that allows him to awaken to a new spirit of mindfulness, finding beauty, wonder, and comfort in the ordinary, and to see a life, a neighborhood, and even a country with brand new eyes. 'With gentle humor and brilliant musings, both past and present, Walks With Sam has the charm and the innate truthfulness that some find in a work of art, a daily quest tinged with wonder and mystery with each forward step.' L.B.Johnson, author of The Book of Barkley.

Vibrant and thought-provoking, Mantra Art harnesses the power of an innovative art form to encourage a personal inner journey towards understanding one's own divine nature. Each meditative painting is imbued with thousands of miniscule, handwritten mantra inspired by the Sikh concept of Oneness - a universal approach to life that is mindful of the Divine presence in everything and everyone, and thus recognises all people as equal. Accompanying the images are insights from the artist illuminating how each artwork was instrumental in aiding her own personal and powerful experiences of joy, exuberance, peace and self-healing.
"When the mind disappears and thoughts disappear, you become
mindful. What is mindfulness? It is awareness. It is perfect
awareness."In "Mindfulness in the Modern World, " Osho helps us
explore both the inner and the outer obstacles that prevent us from
bringing more awareness to all our daily activities. He emphasizes
that while techniques can be useful in pointing the way, in
themselves they are not meditation. Rather, meditation - or
mindfulness - is ultimately a state of being in which we are
capable of both action and stillness, work and play, and able to be
fully present to each moment of life as it comes. Osho's insights
into the nature of the modern mind, with its tendency to judge and
compare, provides a helpful entry point for longtime meditators as
well as beginners. "Mindfulness in the Modern World" covers a wide
range of topics, including five experiential techniques that will
help you bring awareness to your everyday life.

Life today poses many questions, both in our personal lives and in our participation in nature and the broader culture. We often focus on the outer needs for social, political, technological, or environmental change. However, can we really meet the challenges around us without also attending to our inner life and to our own evolving biography as it reflects and informs the outer world? This book starts from the premise that each of our lives expresses uniqueness of spiritual intention within the unfolding of universal rhythms and possibilities. Can we wake up to the developmental opportunities offered to us through different life phases? Are we able to step out of the narrowness of the dualistic nature-nurture argument and experience that we are both more than our genetic composition and more than a product of the social and educational influences that have shaped us? Can we come to appreciate the learning that our "I" has received through heredity, ethnicity, schooling, and gender without losing a sense of our true individuality? Waking up to our unique self as it grows through interaction with the world and other human beings helps us recognize the significance we all play in one another's biographies and in the unfolding of our larger human story. Why on Earth? invites us to explore our own meaning-filled life journey, to bring conscious attention to how we go our path, so that we may more freely perceive our possibilities and our responsibilities along the way of our personal and shared becoming.

Have you ever noticed how cruel and self-sabotaging your critical inner voice can be? Have you been looking outside of yourself for friends and loved ones to reassure you of your worthiness and lovability? The latest developments in neuroscience unveil the amazing extent to which humans are wired for connection, belonging and resonance with other humans. This wiring for connection is so strong, our nervous systems have the capacity to become our own compassionate self-witnesses, even when we have not had access as children to stable loving presence and warmth. The field of neurobiology and the science of mindfulness reveal that the human brain is capable of being engaged in the experience of upset (fear, anxiety, depression) while simultaneously observing and holding ourselves with kindness, as a loving parent or partner would. This ability to be both experiencing and holding the experience is the key to maintaining inner calm in the face of life's challenges. If we learn to honour that each and every inner voice, no matter how distressing, has the desire to help us, we open to the possibility that each part of us has value. This help creates a gentle, accepting and warm resonance with ourselves that can remain stable and present, even when parts of us feel upset. In simple language and easy-to-follow exercises, Your Resonant Self synthesises the latest discoveries in brain science, trauma treatment and the power of empathy into an effective healing method that literally rewires our brain and restores our capacity for self-love and well-being. Each chapter weaves the core concepts of neurobiology with guided meditations and beautiful illustrations, painting an inspiring picture of the human brain's inherent yearning towards healing and wholeness.
