How: Notes on the Great Work of Meeting Yourself

How: Notes on the Great Work of Meeting Yourself

Daley-Ward, Yrsa
$17.00
From the acclaimed poet behind bone, an exploration of how we can meet our truest selves, the ones we've always been meant to become

Yrsa Daley-Ward's words have resonated with hundreds of thousands of readers--through her books of poetry and memoir, bone and The Terrible; through her writing for Beyoncé on Black Is King; and through her always illuminating Instagram posts.

Now, in The How, Yrsa encourages readers to begin, as she puts it, the great work of meeting ourselves. This isn't the self we've built up in response to our surroundings, or the self we manufacture to please the people around us, but instead, our most intimate self, the one we visit in dreams, the one that calls to us from a glimmering future.

With a mix of short lyrical musings and her signature stunning poetry, Yrsa gently takes readers by the hand, encouraging them to join her as she explores how we can remove our filters, and see and feel more of who we really are behind the preconceived notions of propriety and manners we've accumulated with age. With a beautiful design and intriguing meditations, The How can be used to start conversations, to prompt writing, to delve deeper--whether you're solo, or with friends, on your feet or writing from the solace of home.

Doug says: A brilliant and beautiful work. The author invites a reader to join an internal dialogue. True, Daley-Ward targets a specific age group and gender, but I want to say, she got the attention of this male approaching seventy and held it. Many fine quips and quotes, but the chapters “Why We Write It Down” and “Not the End of the Day” stood out for me. Personable, warm, truthful and encouraging. And with a phrase to live by: “Only you know How.”

Learning to Roar: Life Lessons on faith, courage, and female pride

Dyer, Melissa C
$12.99

This book is for any woman who struggles with low self-esteem, knows she's not living as the hero of her own story, or is stuck in a pit of discouragement. Through vulnerably sharing her own stories of growth, Melissa takes her place as a companion, imperfect guide, and Champion on the journey towards courage for every woman who picks up this book.


Learning to Roar is an invitation to rise up out of discouragement and into the bigger life you've always imagined-one step at a time.


Writer, wife, mom, and encourager of women, Melissa C. Dyer, wants to show you how to cultivate courage in your everyday ordinary life. By sharing her personal story of transformation, you will recognize how to apply the "Grow it" principle and live out your own courageous transformation.

Melissa will lay the groundwork for you and:

  • Help you identify your "Courage persona."
  • Provide practical "Do" and "Don't" techniques to develop perseverance, passion and hope.
  • Help you identify weeds that can choke your growth.
  • Reveal to you God's role in the process: the only way you'll learn that His way-while difficult-is the best way.
  • Encourage you to become your own Champion!

  • You can't buy, make, or inherit courage, but with a borrowed seed of encouragement it can be nurtured. You can grow it! Putting these lessons into action is how Melissa learned to roar. And now, you can too!


    It's time to start living your own courageous story!

    Eger, Edith Eva
    $22.99
    This practical and inspirational guide to healing from the award-winning, New York Times bestselling author of The Choice shows us how to stop destructive patterns and imprisoning thoughts to find freedom and enjoy life.

    Edith Eger's powerful first book The Choice told the story of her survival in the concentration camps, her escape, healing, and journey to freedom. Oprah Winfrey says, "I will be forever changed by Dr. Eger's story." Thousands of people around the world have written to Eger to tell her how The Choice moved them and inspired them to confront their own past and try to heal their pain; and to ask her to write another, more "how-to" book. Now, in The Gift, Eger expands on her message of healing and provides a hands-on guide that gently encourages us to change the thoughts and behaviors that may be keeping us imprisoned in the past.

    Eger explains that the worst prison she experienced is not the prison that Nazis put her in but the one she created for herself, the prison within her own mind. She describes the twelve most pervasive imprisoning beliefs she has known--including fear, grief, anger, secrets, stress, guilt, shame, and avoidance--and the tools she has discovered to deal with these universal challenges. Accompanied by stories from Eger's own life and the lives of her patients each chapter includes thought-provoking questions and takeaways, such as:

    -Would you like to be married to you?
    -Are you evolving or revolving?
    -You can't heal what you can't feel.

    Filled with empathy, insight, and humor, The Gift captures the vulnerability and common challenges we all face and provides encouragement and advice for breaking out of our personal prisons to find healing and enjoy life.

    Man's Search for Meaning

    Man's Search for Meaning

    Frank, Viktor
    $15.00
    A book for finding purpose and strength in times of great despair, the international best-seller is still just as relevant today as when it was first published.

    "This is a book I reread a lot . . . it gives me hope . . . it gives me a sense of strength."
    --Anderson Cooper, Anderson Cooper 360/CNN

    This seminal book, which has been called "one of the outstanding contributions to psychological thought" by Carl Rogers and "one of the great books of our time" by Harold Kushner, has been translated into more than fifty languages and sold over sixteen million copies. "An enduring work of survival literature," according to the New York Times, Viktor Frankl's riveting account of his time in the Nazi concentration camps, and his insightful exploration of the human will to find meaning in spite of the worst adversity, has offered solace and guidance to generations of readers since it was first published in 1946. At the heart of Frankl's theory of logotherapy (from the Greek word for "meaning") is a conviction that the primary human drive is not pleasure, as Freud maintained, but rather the discovery and pursuit of what the individual finds meaningful. Today, as new generations face new challenges and an ever more complex and uncertain world, Frankl's classic work continues to inspire us all to find significance in the very act of living, in spite of all obstacles.

    A must-read companion to this classic work, a new, never-before-published work by Frankl entitled Yes to Life: In Spite of Everything, is now available in English.

    This book was published with two different color covers. Customers will be shipped one of the two colors at random.

    Telling

    Telling

    Gerson, Mark
    $29.99

    In The Telling, Mark Gerson, host of The Rabbi's Husband podcast and renowned Jewish philanthropist, shows us how to make the Seder the most engaging, inspiring, and important night of the Jewish year.

    God didn't design the Seder to put your kids to sleep.
    Instead, the Seder is an experience your family should love, treasure and remember.

    Have you ever wondered that there might be something more to Passover, the Seder and in the Haggadah--something that just might hold the secrets to living the life of joy and meaning that you were intended to?

    By using this book, you'll be able to:

    - Lead the Seder with wisdom, confidence and fun that guests will remember
    - Make the Haggadah burst alive with insight for our opportunities, questions and challenges
    - Show Gentile friends the richness of the Jewish tradition
    - Instill a lasting love of Judaism within your children
    - Bring your family closer together and closer to God

    The Telling will enable you to see what the Haggadah really is: The Greatest Hits of Jewish Thought. This understanding will enable you to provide your guests with the most interesting, insightful and practically helpful night of the year--with teachings and lessons that will continue to brighten in the year to come.

    What leaders are saying about The Telling:

    Senator Joseph Lieberman:
    In The Telling, Mark Gerson brilliantly illuminates some of the big questions from the Haggadah whose answers can define what constitutes a meaningful life. By showing how the Haggadah enables its readers to deploy ancient Jewish wisdom to help answer the most contemporary questions, this book will help your Pesach to be what it can be: a life-guiding event, every year, for anyone who learns enough to give it the opportunity.

    Yossi Klein Halevi, Author of Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor and Like Dreamers
    Once a year, shortly before Pesach (emphatically not Passover!), Mark Gerson steps out of his role as a world-class entrepreneur and becomes a teacher of Torah--or more precisely, of the Haggadah. Those sessions have become legendary, and this book helps explain why. Here is Gerson's inimitable voice--passionate, erudite and most of all deeply in love with Jewish wisdom. Read this book to understand why the Haggadah has endured as a seminal Jewish text and why it remains no less relevant today than when it was first written.

    Gordon Robertson - CEO, The Christian Broadcasting Network
    The Telling is the perfect introduction for those desiring to explore this aspect of Jewish life. This book is full of knowledge and thought-provoking questions and answers to the many mysteries that surround this sacred Jewish holiday.

    Feline Philosophy

    Feline Philosophy

    Gray, John
    $15.00

    The author of Straw Dogs, famous for his provocative critiques of scientific hubris and the delusions of progress and humanism, turns his attention to cats--and what they reveal about humans' torturous relationship to the world and to themselves.

    The history of philosophy has been a predictably tragic or comical succession of palliatives for human disquiet. Thinkers from Spinoza to Berdyaev have pursued the perennial questions of how to be happy, how to be good, how to be loved, and how to live in a world of change and loss. But perhaps we can learn more from cats--the animal that has most captured our imagination--than from the great thinkers of the world.

    In Feline Philosophy, the philosopher John Gray discovers in cats a way of living that is unburdened by anxiety and self-consciousness, showing how they embody answers to the big questions of love and attachment, mortality, morality, and the Self: Montaigne's house cat, whose un-examined life may have been the one worth living; Meo, the Vietnam War survivor with an unshakable capacity for fearless joy; and Colette's Saha, the feline heroine of her subversive short story The Cat, a parable about the pitfalls of human jealousy.

    Exploring the nature of cats, and what we can learn from it, Gray offers a profound, thought-provoking meditation on the follies of human exceptionalism and our fundamentally vulnerable and lonely condition. He charts a path toward a life without illusions and delusions, revealing how we can endure both crisis and transformation, and adapt to a changed scene, as cats have always done.
