Thin Place: A Pilgrimage Home

  • Hardcover: 296 pages
  • Publisher: Columbia University Press (November 3, 2008)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 0231146523
  • ISBN-13: 978-0231146524
  • Product Dimensions: 9 x 6.2 x 1 inches

Description

Thin Places is an eloquent meditation on what it means to move between cultures and how one might finally come home, a particular paradox in a culture that lacks deep ties to the natural world.
Charting Armbrecht’s travels as an anthropologist in the mountains of Nepal and the United States and her disintegrating marriage back home, Thin Places is ultimately an exploration not of the sacred far-off but of the sacredness of places between—between the internal and external landscape, between the self and other, and between the self and the land. She finds that home is not a place where you arrive but a way of being in place, wherever that place may be. Along the way Armbrecht explores the disconnections in our most intimate relationships, how they stem from the same disconnections that create our destruction of the land, and how one cannot be healed without attending to the other.

“Ann Armbrecht has written an intricate, smart, soulful story about the shape-shifting boundaries between culture and landscape; people and place. But Thin Places is much more than travel writing rooted in Nepal. It is a brave rendering of what happens when we allow our intellect to bow to our instincts and recognize love for what it is: a transformative pilgrimage requiring great courage and generosity of spirit, including forgiveness.” – Terry Tempest Williams, author of Finding Beauty in a Broken World

Kundalini Awakening

  • Perfect Paperback: 252 pages
  • Publisher: New Paradigm Media, Inc.; 2nd edition (January 1, 2009)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 0979040051
  • ISBN-13: 978-0979040054
  • Product Dimensions: 8.9 x 6 x 0.6 inches
  • Description

    Develop Your True Inner Power!

    The Kundalini is a powerful pool of energy that lies dormant at the base of the spine. For thousands of years the Awakening of the Kundalini has been enshrouded in myth and mystery.

    The simple fact is that Awakening the Kundalini really isn t that hard! People do it all the time completely by accident. What can be extremely difficult is learning to deal with the changes that an Awakened Kundalini can bring about in your life.

    Robert Morgen had a Kundalini Awakening during a near-death experience in 1992 and then spent the next decade on a quest to understand what had happened and how to adjust to the changes in his life.

    “The kundalini can show you why you re here, what life is really all about and help unveil the mysteries surrounding our everyday lives. This book can teach you to calm your mind, improve your health and develop abilities that most people aren t even aware of” says Morgen. Using the exercises in this book, the dedicated Seeker (that’s YOU) can not only learn to tap into these hidden reserves of energy, but do so safely and efficiently.

    The topics covered include:
    Meditation Basics: unlocking your inner power
    Kundalini and Enlightenment
    Developing your Self-Awareness
    Seeing and feeling energy
    Complete Self Acceptance
    Opening and Balancing the Chakras
    And much more

    “Personal Mastery is an incremental process,” says Morgen. “Rather than making huge, unsustainable changes, it s all about developing your true self and becoming the person you were meant to be. No matter who or where you are, your path to your own personal mastery starts right NOW!”

    Lost in the midst of the violence of the First World War was a holocaust that differed from that of Hitler’s only in its scale. The Turkish government let loose upon its own Armenian citizens its hordes of savage killers, recruited from its prisons, to perpetuate one of history’s most barbaric slaughters upon a peaceful and progressive people, massacring a million and a half of its three million Armenian population. During Hitler’s planning of the extermination of the Jews, he is quoted by history as saying, “After all, who speaks nowadays of the massacre of the Armenians?” Vahan Gregory’s Sing the Long Sorrow penetrates the events of this historic nightmare, and tells a moving tale of perpetrator and victim.

    Zyra Zanr, intergalactic bounty hunter for hire, has hunted fugitive criminals for many years. However, her true goal is to destroy the Zaragos Crime Syndicate whose agents ruthlessly murdered her father. But Zyra’s vendetta with Zaragos leads her on a forlorn crusade that puts her at odds with not only the law, but also her own religious principles.

    While hunting a notorious fugitive on the distant side of the galaxy, Zyra stumbles onto a conspiracy by Zaragos to murder the senators of the Intergalactic Alliance. Zyra learns that this plot is just the tip of the iceberg, for there is a clandestine force operating behind Zaragos that seeks to destroy not only the Intergalactic Alliance, but mankind as well. Zyra will have to put aside her selfish quest of revenge if she is to uncover the mastermind behind this plot and save humanity from an impending holocaust.

    Zyra must come to terms with the violent role she plays in trying to keep peace in the galaxy, as well as the fact that a lone wolf may not be able to stop the coming Armageddon.

    Rogue Hunter takes Zyra on a quest of adventure and descent into darkness, ultimately pitting the forces of good against evil in an epic struggle that can only result in the liberation or destruction of one woman’s soul while the fate of humanity rests in the balance.

    Description

    Born near the red sand dunes of the Kalahari, PEARL HARRIS lived most of her life in South Africa, before taking the drastic step of relocating to the Czech Republic. “Czechoslovakia? Isn’t that Communist?” “Isn’t there a war going on over there?” were just some of the comments she had to grin and bear before leaving South Africa at the beginning of 2002. At an age when most are enjoying retirement, departing from the comfort zone of family and friends to a new home and career in a country with an unintelligible language and culture and climate far removed from her own, proved a challenge to be faced head-on by this descendant of another British pioneer. Pearl’s account of those first difficult years as an immigrant in a small Czech village will have you laughing out loud. This is an essential read for anyone contemplating emigration, as well as for the reader relaxing in the comfort of a familiar armchair to breathe a thankful sigh for not having chosen this tortuous path!

The surprise ending of Book I, leaves Margaret in a quandary, whether to seek vengeance or to continue on with her journey to India. In the end, she believes she has made the right decision.

    Description

    Call of Destiny is a coming-of-age story about four college-age students struggling to find themselves in a very traditional—almost conformist—culture.

    To high school senior Michael Gillen, living on Earth in the late twenty-fifth century is a miserable existence. His parents always ride him for lacking discipline and ambition, certainly a result of the long shadow cast over him by his older brother. Even worse, the Gillen family’s well-known and jaded history makes him an easy target for every bully that comes along.

    No, Michael can’t wait until graduation so that he can finally flee his wretched life!

    That’s when the young man seizes the opportunity to realize his lifelong dream of exploring the stars. Just one problem: the prestigious university offering that chance is a military academy and he is anything but military-minded.

    Meanwhile, an evil tyrant has come to power far across the solar system, quickly threatening the peace of Terrae Solaris.

    Will the stubborn, free-spirited, and idealistic young man wash out before realizing his dream?

    Will his family’s past get the best of him? Can he keep his mind off other, more enticing distractions?

    Will he get his chance to set off into the stars before a terrible war breaks out?

    Life pretty much sucks for eleven-year-old Ima Jean Snodgrass. As if being poor and being stuck with the worst name in the world wasn’t bad enough, now her parents have split up and her mother has moved the two of them to Elmwood, the worst town in the world. All the kids at her new school constantly harass her and call her awful names like “Snotrag”. Even her teachers seem to hate her. But just when Ima Jean has given up on ever being happy again, she discovers the strange little shop on the edge of town called Phliberty-Jibbits.

    Run by the eccentric Philbert Phliberty and his partner, Gerald Jibbits, Phliberty-Jibbits is an incredible place full of incredible things, things like a flying pig, a know-it-all robot, and a pipe-smoking sasquatch, to name but a few of the odd inhabitants. Invisible to adults, Phliberty-Jibbits’ sole purpose is to bring a little happiness into the lives of unfortunate children, those who, for whatever reason, illness, poverty, loneliness, etc., etc., are extraordinarily unhappy. For the price of a smile, Ima Jean can have everything she’s always wanted, including the most amazing adventures. But more importantly, at Phliberty-Jibbits she finds friendship and understanding.

    Unfortunately, just when things are finally beginning to look up for Ima Jean, they learn that Professor Horace P. Hemlock, the mad scientist responsible for most of the bizarre creations at Phliberty-Jibbits, has kidnapped Jibbits and is threatening dire consequences unless complete control of the shop is turned over to him within forty-eight hours. Phliberty and Ima Jean set out at once to rescue Jibbits, but they are completely unprepared for the surprises the evil professor has in store for them.

    Meet Tiff Banks, the new gal on the paranormal mystery scene!

    I’m told the dead are all around us. I wouldn’t know about that – I see only the violently slain. They could be victims of hit-and-run, innocents caught in a cross-fire or the murdered. They whisper to me and they never, ever, forget the face of their killer. They aren’t the only supernatural things I see. No, they’re not vampires, werewolves or fae – those things don’t exist. We live side by side with what some call the Otherworldy, but that’s too much of a mouthful for me. I call them demons. If you saw them as I do you’d know why. Right now I’m trying to find Lawrence, the missing son of a murdered woman. Or was she murdered? But Clarion PD gave me a partner I would rather shoot than work with. I can’t tell them he’s a demon. They’d think I’m crazy.

    Along Came a Demon has been described as “A definite page turner full of twists to keep you guessing until the end.” ” . . . an edge-of-the-seat thriller that refuses to be put aside unfinished.” “. . . punchy, engaging and flowing prose . . . Plenty of twists and turns, humor and tension, action and intrigue.”

    Description

    Jay A. Stout–a comprehensively published (Random House, Casemate, Motorbooks, etc.) and award winning military historian–makes his first foray into fiction with this wonderfully unique new work. He leverages not only his fine writing and far-reaching imagination, but also his experience as a Marine Corps fighter pilot. The result is this top-notch work–a superlative and believable blend of technology, fantasy and human dynamics.

    This contemporary story is set at Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort, South Carolina. Captain Michael “Rocco” Barducci is killed in a tragic accident, yet his time on earth is far from over. Delivered back to earth as an angel in raccoon form, Rocco is befriended by Miss Kitty, another reincarnate whose time as an angel has spanned the globe since she was killed by Indians in 1764. Together, they team with Rocco’s former wingman to stop a cabal of fallen angels and criminals from stealing a top secret military weapon. The transfixing culmination is unlike anything ever done.

    The crisp, credible and fast-running narrative takes the reader on a roller-coaster ride aboard cutting edge fighter aircraft, through failures and triumphs in romance and relationships, and finally into a close and reasoned consideration of the family pet.

    Description

    BUFFALOed is the First Place Grand Prize Winner for fiction in the 2009 Indie Book Awards.

    Young Norwegian immigrant Ovidia Odegard expects to find buffalo, the enduring symbol of the American West, when she signs on as Charles and Nancy Russell’s hired girl. Instead, she finds Indians more educated than most of the whites, social order as stratified as Eastern society in this proper Victorian age, and an assortment of boozers and bamboozlers, women chasers, and gamblers. In fact, Ovidia is quick to catch on to games of chance, which helps her repay the cost of passage to this confusing, but not so Wild West. But even Ovidia balks at the chicanery when she suspects the gigantic mural commissioned for the Montana State House is not painted by the great Charlie Russell, but by one of his students. Can this possibly be true? Western Writers of America Review in Roundup, February, 2009 —CKC—

    This book will appeal to readers who love western fiction, readers who like to mix a little art with their fiction, and all readers who enjoy a good tall tale. Winfield does an excellent job of making the story real. Because the premise is so intriguing, one will want to check out fact from fiction using other sources.

    Serena Murphy was losing her mind.

    Every night Serena stood on the deck of O’Flanagans Tavern, searching Maine’s rugged coast for a sign of her husband’s body. Though he was pronounced lost at sea, Alan Murphy still haunted her as only his malevolent spirit could. In the loft above her tavern, Serena hears footsteps pace across her living room floor, yet when she turns, no one is there.

    Alan would not let a little thing like death stop him from tormenting her. If she could just find his body, surely this torture would stop.

    It had been ten years since Brett Murphy saw his sister in-law, although the separation was by design, to avoid temptation. Now Brett was in Victory Cove, not to declare his feelings for Serena, but to discover the truth about his brother’s death. In doing so, he must battle Serena’s ghosts, both real and contrived.

    The God Wars

    • Format: Kindle Edition

    • Sold by: Amazon Digital Services
    • Language: English
    • ASIN: B002CMLNIC

    Description

    At its heart, The God Wars is a book about September 11, 2001, but the events of that day are barely mentioned. On one level, it’s a tale of utter hopelessness. On another, it’s about the clear path toward hope.

    Some will see The God Wars as anti-religion, perhaps even anti-American. But the careful reader will see that it’s pro-peace, pro-sanity, and pro-love. Without being preachy, it’s about the benefits of setting aside dogma and mindless patriotism, and pledging allegiance instead to the worldwide community of humankind.

    Four characters tell the story in the first person: a vagabond journalist with a knack for prophecy; a mysterious woman discovering that the bedrock of her reality — time — does not exist; a young bride who finds her true identity in a change of clothes; and a physics professor whose unifying “Theory of Everything” splinters his mind.

For Ernst Stahl and Frank Jolino the result is a psychic bond that slowly blossoms in each man’s mind, enabling them to see into the other’s world. Frank Jolino doesn’t like what he sees, especially when he realizes that Stahl is headed to his home turf of Boston to kill a scientist who may hold the key to solving the world’s deadliest diseases. But for Stahl, there’s no other option. Virtually bankrupt and with his son in desperate need of a bone marrow transplant, he’s got little choice but to take the assignment. Jolino has other ideas. On the run from his crime syndicate for refusing to kill his ex-girlfriend-turned-government-informant, Jolino sets a plan in motion that will bring the two men face-to-face and gun-to-gun…with no guarantees either will survive.

    Werewolf Dreams is an entertaining, tongue in cheek read. M.M. Anderson’s fluid dialogue and descriptions are excellent throughout. In short, she’s a very talented writer with the ability to spin a tale that pulls the reader right in. Sign me up — I’m ready for her next book. –Mitchell Graham Author – The Fifth Ring
