How the Science of Spirituality Can Help You Live a Happier, More Meaningful Life

By Anna Yusim

  • Hardback
  • £20.00

Standing at the intersection of empirical science and spirituality, FULFILLED presents a groundbreaking new approach to self-actuality, one firmly rooted in science and written by a well-connected psychiatrist.

Over the past 15 years, psychiatrist Dr. Anna Yusim has made a startling discovery that flies in the face of most modern medical teaching, including her own. Her patients' primary complaints, ranging from anxiety to depression to sexual dysfunction, often coincide with spiritual neglect--an all too common problem in Western cultures that champion intellectual development over spiritual care.

Medical research is now substantiating what Dr. Yusim has known to be true for many years: spirituality is a powerful path to healing. Drawing from the best in Western medicine (and her training at Stanford, Yale, and NYU), as well as teachings from Kabbalah, Buddhism, and South African shamanistic traditions, Dr. Yusim has developed a program that marries empirical science and spirituality for true healing. Using the techniques Dr. Yusim has used to help over 1,000 individuals realign with their higher purpose--authenticity, empowerment, meaning, and connection--FULFILLED tunes readers in to the voice of their soul and teaches them how to live happier, more fulfilling lives.

Filled with practical wisdom, interactive exercises, and fascinating research, and integrating the best of Western medicine with Eastern philosophy, FULFILLED will appeal to skeptics and seekers alike, and to readers who are looking for more meaning, joy, and happiness in their lives.

The Tremor of Forgery

Patricia Highsmith
Authors:
Patricia Highsmith

A gripping novel that explores the shifting sands of moral values - is murder still murder when committed in a lawless place?'Highsmith is the poet of apprehension rather than fear . . . Highsmith's finest novel to my mind is The Tremor of Forgery, and if I were asked what it is about I would reply, "apprehension"' Graham GreeneHoward Ingham finds it strange that no one has written to him since he arrived in Tunisia - neither the film director that he is supposed to be meeting in Tunis, nor his lover in New York who is, he hopes, missing him. While he waits around at a beach resort, unable to progress on the film script he is there to write, he starts work on a new novel, about a man living an amoral double life. Howard also befriends a fellow American who has a taste for Scotch and a suspicious interest in the Soviet Union, and a Dane who appears to distrust Arabs intensely. When bad news finally arrives from home, Howard thinks he may as well stay and continue writing, despite the tremors in the air of violence, tensions and ambiguous morals.

'Highsmith's novels are peerlessly disturbing . . . bad dreams that keep us thrashing for the rest of the night' New YorkerSydney Bartleby has killed his wife. At least, he has thought about it, compulsively, repeatedly, plotting schemes, designing escapes, forging alibis. Of course he has; he's a thriller writer. He even knows how to dispose of her body. But when Alicia takes a long, unannounced holiday, Sydney descends into the treacherous world of his own fantasy.A masterpiece of noir fantasy in which Highsmith revels in eliciting the unsettling psychological forces that lurk beneath the surface of everyday life.

Bad Feminist

Roxane Gay
Authors:
Roxane Gay

'Pink is my favourite colour. I used to say my favourite colour was black to be cool, but it is pink - all shades of pink. If I have an accessory, it is probably pink. I read Vogue, and I'm not doing it ironically, though it might seem that way. I once live-tweeted the September issue.'In these funny and insightful essays, Roxane Gay takes us through the journey of her evolution as a woman (Sweet Valley High) of colour (The Help) while also taking readers on a ride through culture of the last few years (Girls, Django in Chains) and commenting on the state of feminism today (abortion, Chris Brown). The portrait that emerges is not only one of an incredibly insightful woman continually growing to understand herself and our society, but also one of our culture.Bad Feminist is a sharp, funny and sincere look at the ways in which the culture we consume becomes who we are, and an inspiring call-to-arms of all the ways we still need to do better.

Mindfulness and Acceptance in Social Work

Matthew S. Boone
Authors:
Matthew S. Boone

In the last twenty years, mindfulness and acceptance-based therapies have gained immense popularity as treatment options for various health and mental health concerns. Meanwhile, social work has focused on serving the needs of people who are vulnerable, oppressed, and disadvantaged. Both social work and psychology stress the importance of understanding and addressing the contextual forces which contribute to human problems.Now, in Mindfulness and Acceptance in Social Work, a clinical social worker brings together the top voices in social work and mindfulness-based treatments in one volume. With contributions by mindfulness experts and pioneers, such as Kirk Strosahl, Patricia Robinson, Matthew S. Boone, and Steven C. Hayes, this book offers an introduction to evidence-based mindfulness concepts and discusses how they can be applied to your profession in social work. It also includes brief interventions that can bring mindfulness and acceptance into daily practice, whether you work with clients in a therapy setting or in other settings.Unlike many books on mindfulness and acceptance which come from the field of psychology, this book touches on issues such as social justice, cultural diversity, and macro social work. In this book you will learn how to move past culturally-informed biases, as well as how to best utilize mindfulness interventions for both individuals and the community at large.

The Black House

Patricia Highsmith
Authors:
Patricia Highsmith

'A border zone of the macabre, the disturbing, the not-quite accidental' New York Times Book ReviewThe Black House eerily evokes the warm familiarities of suburban life: the manicured lawns, the white picket fences, and the local pubs, each providing the setting for Highsmith's chilling portraits.Some neighbours are playing scrabble one evening when their cat drags into their house not a bird, or some other catch, but human fingers; a guest arrives at a dinner party where he is not welcome, and his hosts conspire to find and attack his Achilles heel; the crew of the Emma C rescue a beautiful girl floating unconscious in the sea and tension explodes between the men on board; a childless thirty-something couple decide to invite two elderly folk to live with them, but have they been too generous? In this collection of Patricia Highsmith's wonderfully unsettling short stories, people's motives are frequently twisted and no occurrence is without a sinister underlying meaning.
