Living the Life That You Are
By Nic Higham
"Living the Life That You Are weaves together psychology, ancient wisdom, and honest personal reflections into a coherent and inspiring whole. If loneliness is the great disease of the modern age, then Nic's heartfelt plea for self-love is much-needed medicine."-Jeff Foster, author of Falling in Love with Where You AreWhen you feel isolated and alone, the world can seem like an enormously unfamiliar, confusing, and scary place. You may get caught up in your own thoughts and feelings, and even avoid connecting with others out of fear of being criticized, misunderstood, or uncomfortable-which only leads to more isolation and loneliness. This cycle can be hard to break, but you are not doomed to endure this painful condition of feeling lost and alone. This book can help you find authentic peace, confidence, and connection with all that is, right here and now. Living the Life That You Are examines the modern-day dilemma of loneliness, revealing that its root cause is the belief that we're all separate individuals bound by personal limitations. We feel disconnected and incomplete, assuming that life's fullness exists somewhere out there, and that we must be, do, or have more for lasting fulfillment. But the truth is, despite our limited appearance, we are actually boundless. There is no divide between our internal and external worlds. This is the ancient philosophy of non-duality-we are the wholeness we are seeking.The life that you are is all that is right now: every texture, flavor, fragrance, sight, and sound in their abundance. Using radical mindfulness-a combination of mindfulness and non-dual self-inquiry-this book will guide you toward awakening to the transformative truth and love that is your foundational being. By learning to observe, acknowledge, and question your experience without censorship or prejudice, your sense of being lost and alone will give way to an enriching and comforting state of communion with all.

Life After Darkness
By Michelle Knight
Michelle Knight-now known as Lily Rose Lee-captured the world's attention May 2013, when she and fellow kidnapping victims Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus were found and freed after years of imprisonment and torture. Michelle was a young single mother when she was kidnapped by a Cleveland school bus driver named Ariel Castro. Her story of the horrors she endured for more than a decade afterward, and the hope she sustained, became the #1 New York Times bestseller Finding Me in 2014. In her second book-to be published on the fifth anniversary of her escape-she answers the question: How do you heal after great tragedy? Organized thematically (finding hope, finding friendship, finding love), Michelle shares her experience of rebuilding her life, and offers her thoughts on how anyone who has suffered greatly can learn to find new meaning and purpose.
Lust for Love
By Pamela Anderson, Shmuley Boteach
An unlikely pair of voices-the world's most recognizable beauty icon and "America's rabbi"-comes together to diagnose how meaningful, passionate sex is on the decline in Western culture, and what is necessary to save it. Sex is dying in America. Inundated with sex and starved for it, obsessed with it yet clueless about it, we are slowly forgetting how to make love. The crisis of modern sexuality is seen in high divorce rates, in the degradation of sexuality through pornography, and tasteless displays of empty, counterfeit erotica. Most of all, it's seen in sexless marriages and platonic relationships where cybersex has become more addictive than the real thing. Sex has become so trivialized, coarsened, and vulgarized that couples no longer feel its pull. The once powerful and irresistible magnetism of sex is being diluted and drained.The authors propose replacing the 1960s' sexual revolution with a new sensual revolution, a rediscovery of intimacy that encourages and ennobles human relationships, elevates healthy lust, and gets us from looking up from the glowing screens of our smartphones to the people around us, most especially the people we love the most. LUST FOR LOVE embraces the idea that what our most important relationships need most is lust. It is necessary to rediscover what's sexy again, how to bring back romance, and to understand that in addition to love, we need lust to repair our unfulfilling sex lives and broken relationships. LUST FOR LOVE proposes a return to what lovemaking was always meant to be: a desire to know and experience another person in the deepest possible way.

Life as Sport
By Jonathan Fader
Why do sports captivate people? They allow us to watch human beings achieve peak performance, but, beyond physical strength and skill, what's really impressive is an athlete's mental prowess,their will to succeed, engagement with their environment, and self-confidence.In Life as Sport , sport psychologist Dr. Jonathan Fader shares the skills that he teaches professional athletes,to enhance motivation, set productive goals, sharpen routines, manage stress, and clarify thought processes,and applies them to real-world situations. Dr. Fader's book is the product of thousands of hours of conversations with athletes from various teams and sports: power forwards, tennis phenoms, power-hitting outfielders, and battle-scarred linebackers, as well as hedge-fund managers, entrepreneurs, A-list actors, and dozens of other elite achievers in sports, business, and performing arts. It offers a compendium of stories, theories, and techniques that have been helpful to players, coaches, and executives in professional sports. What emerges is more than just a set of techniques, but a life philosophy that anyone can live by: an internal code to help translate our talent and drive toward the highest plateaus of performance.Dr. Fader designs his strategies to be studied, learned, practiced, and improved. He offers his readers the same exercises that he uses in every session with a professional athlete. These exercises help you to get truly engaged, whether you are designing a new business plan, working to inspire a team or individual, or even falling in love. This is what it means to truly live life as sport,to approach it with the same immediacy, wonder, and engagement that athletes feel at their peak during a game. Life as Sport helps you to pursue your own goals with an enriched intensity,not only because it creates new potential, but also because it helps you unlock what was always there to begin with.

By Steven Stosny
Betrayal has many faces, including anger, abuse, deceit, and infidelity. If you've recently left a relationship where you felt betrayed by your partner, you may have difficulty moving on. In fact, it can seem impossible to view the world without the shadow of this past betrayal hovering over you, and as a result you may struggle to create meaning in your life and build new, loving relationships.In Living and Loving after Betrayal, clinical psychologist and anger management expert Steven Stosny offers you effective tools for healing based on his successful program, CompassionPower.

This book explores all of these topics, but also explores less-talked-about betrayals, such as emotional manipulation, dishonesty and deceit, and financial betrayal. In addition, this book aims to help you regain a sense of trust in others so that you can eventually find another compassionate person to share your life with.Recovering from the betrayal of partner isn't easy, but there are ways that you can heal and learn to love again.
