Younger for Longer

By Dr Duncan Carmichael
Authors:
Dr Duncan Carmichael
The goal of this book is to show readers how to live a healthy life free from the debilitations of ageing, helping them to stay mentally alert and physically active, and making sure they get the most out of all of their years. That means aiming for optimal health. However, focusing on one factor alone will not get them there. Our sleep, our mood, what we eat, our detoxification system and our hormones are just some of the factors that interact in amazing ways to make us who we are; they are also at the very heart of the aging process. This book shows how these different strands combine in ways that can be positive or negative - and explains why this interaction depends far more on the lifestyle we choose than on the genes we inherit. In that way it gives the reader a unique and comprehensive understanding of their body and tells them how, with this knowledge, they can maximize their health.The topics range from nutrition, toxins, men's health and women's health to understanding why our skin, brain and liver age - and how to undo the damage and stave off ageing. But the book's main focus underlying all of this is hormones: the chemicals that tell different parts of our body what to do. Our hormone levels vary throughout our life, but if they are supported correctly they can keep us youthful and vital into our final years.Finding health, then, is not about seven ways to detox or the five best vitamins. The body is far more complex than that and, in an approach aimed specifically at the layperson, Younger for Longer traces the exciting path of how the body works to help the reader create the best person they can be for the rest of their life.

You Are Enough

Now she wants readers to see that though life may not always be lighthearted and happy and shiny, each woman is deserving of the life she dreams of and hopes for. Nothing readers do can ever take away from their worthiness or enough-ness in God's eyes. This book is for any woman who wants to overcome heartbreak, claim her healing and step into wholeness!

You Are Beautiful

By Ashley Reitz, Lorilee Craker
Authors:
Ashley Reitz, Lorilee Craker
Readers will get to know Ashley Reitz, a top international curve model who, despite being a good girl and even a pastor's daughter, took destructive detours in unhealthy dieting, and beauty and body obsession before discovering that she was already special and good enough-because Jesus had made her so. Ashley weaves her stories of growing up feeling self concious and unnoticed with behind-the-scenes snapshots of the good, the bad, and the ugly of the modeling industry. She offers lessons for readers on how to find true confidence as they discover their identity in Christ, not the empty substitutes of this world. As she explores topics of confidence, beauty, positive body image, and the maddening-and futile-pursuit of perfection, Ashley acts as a big sister to speak truth and healing into the lives of young women and girls.

Yoga in the Kashmir Tradition

By Billy Doyle
Authors:
Billy Doyle
"If we have first understood, or have the deep conviction, that in our real nature there is nothing to become, nothing to attain, then we can explore the body and its movements without end-gaining. We can practise yoga to free us from what we are not, and perhaps more profoundly, simply for the joy of it."Jean also had reservations about certain dualistic tendencies in yoga: yoga means to join, but to join what? We are one from the beginning; we only have to see it. The emphasis here is not on achieving something but on listening and exploring without will or effort. In the progressive approach one evolves through various levels of spiritual attainment. But there is always a someone, an ego, still evolving. In the direct approach there is simply recognising the false as false, that you can never be something objective. The personal has no role to play."Jean Klein was a master of Advaita (non-dualism) and yoga. He taught yoga in the Kashmir Tradition, an approach based on awareness through body sensation, which is here presented by Billy Doyle, a long term student of Jean Klein. This teaching was grounded in the non-dualistic perspective. Yoga in the Kashmir Tradition: The Art of Listening therefore covers all facets of Jean Klein's teaching.

Danya Ruttenberg, Susannah Heschel
Thanks in large part to the struggles of their activist foremothers, today's young Jewish women have a dizzying array of spiritual options. Yentl's Revenge chronicles a range of experiences lived by an entire generation of women, from Judeo-pagan witches to young Orthodox mothers, from rabbis to sex educators. Contributors ponder Jewish transgenderdom, Jewish body image, Jewish punk, the stereotype of the Jewish American Princess, intermarriage, circumcision, faith, and intolerance. Essays include Bubbe Got Back: Tales of a Jewish Caboose" by Ophira Edut, and On Being a Jewish Feminist Valley Girl" by Tobin Belzer.

Yesterday's Children

By Jenny Cockell
Authors:
Jenny Cockell
This is the extraordinary story of Jenny Cockell, a young woman from Northamptonshire, who has always known that she has lived before. In her previous life her name was Mary. She was an Irishwoman who died 21 years before Jenny was born leaving several very young children without a mother or a stable, happy home. Yesterday's Children describes the trauma and worry of this continual pastlife memory, and Jenny's decision to search for her lost children. The book follows her progress through her dreams and memories, the revelations of hypnotism, her searches through maps, through local groups in Ireland, and her trip to the village where Mary had lived. Finally, she details her painstaking search for the children (now in their sixties and seventies) who had been split up after Mary's death, and the extraordinary reunions that took place. This is a fascinating book. In many ways it is a real life detective story, as we learn about Jenny, about Mary, her difficult life and finally, with great joy and trepidation, discover what happened to her children.
