Currently, there are iRest programs in military hospitals across the US, as well as in correctional facilities, hospices, clinics, schools, and organizations supporting personal growth and well-being. iRest has been endorsed by the US Army Surgeon General and Defense Centers of Excellence as a complementary and alternative medicine (CAM).

If you are ready to start healing from your trauma and get back to living the life you once knew-a life free from fear, anxiety, and sleepless nights-this book will help you find your way. To find out more about Richard C. Miller and the iRest program, visit www.irest.us.

CFT Made Simple

Russell Kolts
Authors:
Russell Kolts

Created by world-renowned psychologist Paul Gilbert, compassion-focused therapy (CFT) is extremely effective in helping clients work through painful feelings of shame and self-criticism. However, the theoretical aspects of this therapy-such as evolutionary psychology, attachment theory, and affective neuroscience-can make CFT difficult to grasp. This book provides everything you need to start implementing CFT in practice, either as a primary therapy modality or as an adjunctive approach to other therapies, such as acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and more.CFT has unique strengths, and is especially effective in helping clients work through troubling thoughts and behaviors, approach themselves and others with greater compassion and kindness, and feel safer and more confident in their ability to handle life's challenges and difficulties. This book articulates the theoretical basis of the therapy in simple, easy-to-follow language, and offers practical guidance and strategies on how to tailor your CFT approach to specific client populations.As a clinician interested in the benefits of CFT but wary of the dense theoretical principles that lay behind it, you need a user-friendly guide that will let you hit the ground running. CFT Made Simple is that guide.

Emotion Efficacy Therapy

Matthew McKay, Aprilia West
Authors:
Matthew McKay, Aprilia West

If you treat clients with emotion regulation disorders-including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), bipolar disorder, and borderline personality disorder (BPD)-you know how important it is for these clients to take control of their emotions and choose their actions in accordance with their values. To help, emotion efficacy therapy (EET) provides a new, theoretically-driven, contextually-based treatment that integrates components from acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) into an exposure-based protocol. In doing so, EET targets the transdiagnostic drivers of experiential avoidance and distress intolerance to increase emotional efficacy.This step-by-step manual will show you how to help your clients confront and accept their pain, and learn to apply new adaptive responses to emotional triggers. Using a brief treatment that lasts as little as eight weeks, you will be able to help your clients understand and develop a new relationship with their emotions, learn how to have mastery over their emotional experience, practice values-based action in the midst of being emotionally triggered, and stop intense emotions from getting in the way of creating the life they want.Using the transdiagnostic, exposure-based approach in this book, you can help your clients manage difficult emotions, curb negative reactions, and start living a better life. This book is a game changer for emotion exposure treatment!

Dismantling the Fantasy

Darryl Bailey
Authors:
Darryl Bailey

If you move into the deepest teachings of any great spiritual tradition, at some point you must move beyond the tradition itself and any idea of enlightenment. What is it that remains when the spiritual path, and even enlightenment, is transcended? Dismantling the Fantasy is a consideration of the movement out of thought itself. This may sound extreme or even impossible, but again it is a simple consideration of our potential, and you can easily understand it from the life experience you already have.

Into the Stillness

Gary Weber, Richard Doyle
Authors:
Gary Weber, Richard Doyle

This is an important book. Don't be misled by the casually graceful repartee and lightness of touch. Without dogma, without heavy shoulds and should nots, authors Gary Weber and Richard Doyle point toward something eternal, framed in our twenty-first century understanding of neuroscience, spirituality, and something that arises from, and returns to, the Stillness and the Silence.In Into the Stillness, Weber and Doyle offer a practical investigation and guidance toward "the sweetest, fullest, most loving, caring, and manifesting experience that anyone could ever wish for." Chapter headings include "Using dialogue for awakening," "Can you 'do nothing' and awaken?", "Why do we fear emptiness, silence, and stillness?" and "Functioning without thoughts: sex, psychedelics, and non-duality."As a journey, this collection of dialogs is inspiring, shifting, and full of little moments of insight that will linger with readers for a long time afterward.

Ordinary Freedom

Jon Bernie
Authors:
Jon Bernie

When we arrive in this moment and awaken to the truth of our existence, we discover that Freedom is completely ordinary-ordinary, yet awesome. The recognition and realization of our essential nature is for many a gradual transition. The challenge of our generation is to find out how to support this transformation in the midst of our everyday lives.Adyashanti writes, "This wonderful collection of Jon's teachings really captures his ability to point us back to our own innate freedom. What makes Jon's teachings so powerful and relevant, though, is that no part of the human experience is denied. Indeed, there is an open encouragement for all of our human experience to be included and embraced as a means of discovering the infinite ground of being, within which all of our experience unfolds. This in itself is a great gift to any spiritual seeker looking to find out what freedom is really all about."Reading Ordinary Freedom is like having a wise and loving but uncompromising friend on the path to discovering our true nature.
