Summary

Arthur Machen's 'The White People' is a captivating exploration of the occult and the supernatural, blending elements of horror and fantasy to create a unique and thought-provoking narrative. The book is a collection of interconnected stories that delve into the mystical world of fairies, witches, and otherworldly beings, engaging readers with its eerie atmosphere and intricate storytelling. Machen's lyrical prose and vivid imagery add to the ethereal quality of the tales, making them both mesmerizing and unsettling in equal measure. Set against the backdrop of rural Wales, the book transports readers to a world where the boundaries between reality and the supernatural are blurred, inviting them to question their perceptions of the unknown. Originally published in 1910, 'The White People' remains a timeless classic in the realm of occult literature, showcasing Machen's unparalleled talent for weaving together folklore, mysticism, and symbolism in a truly mesmerizing way. Arthur Machen's deep fascination with the occult and folklore is evident in his work, as he draws inspiration from Celtic mythology and ancient legends to craft a series of haunting and immersive stories. His keen interest in the supernatural and the unexplained fuels the eerie and mysterious tone of 'The White People', creating a sense of unease and wonder that lingers long after the final page is turned. Machen's intricate knowledge of folklore and his ability to capture the essence of the unknown make him a master of the genre, offering readers a glimpse into a hidden world filled with magic and mystery. I highly recommend 'The White People' to any reader with a taste for the macabre and the mysterious, as Machen's skillful storytelling and rich imagination make for a truly unforgettable reading experience.

    Do you want to achieve optimal health but are confused by the many conflicting recommendations? Is there truly one solution that has only benefits, not downsides, and in turn reduces the risk of succumbing to the diseases which are so prevalent in modern society? And will this really combat the ageing process? Max Tuck believes that there is such a solution: the Whole Body Solution. In this compelling book, she elaborates not only on how to eat to support each of your nine body systems , but how all of these systems interrelate to synergistically create the level of health that everyone seeks, but which might hitherto have been elusive. Bringing together a scientific approach to nutrition and exercise with a deep interest in the mind-body connection, Max explains how, by taking care of each body system, everyone can reach their ideal weight, attain vibrant health and make concerns about ageing and degenerative disease a thing of the past, regardless of genetic predisposition.

    Making Peace with God

    Program includes: Lecture - 7 Minutes Guided Meditation - 21 Minutes Perhaps you’ve looked at human suffering, either in your own life, or from a distance, and thought, “If God were real, surely He wouldn’t allow this to go on. Why doesn’t He do something? Where’s all the LOVE He’s supposed to be so famous for?” Often from our vantage point, God doesn’t seem kind, to say the least.  When we’ve suffered through difficult situations, tried everything, and found no way out, we can end up frustrated, bitter and angry at God, life, and ourselves. The negative outlook colors everything we see, and eventually becomes "normal", until we're no longer even aware we're holding it.  In Making Peace With God, intuitive guide and spiritual facilitator Max Highstein first offers a unique, healing perspective on the subject. Then he leads you through a guided meditation to help you let go of negativity, and make a positive shift deep within. If you’ve been feeling discouraged, frustrated, alienated or disillusioned with God, this program can help.From the Author, Max Highstein:  I’m not here to speak for God -- there are plenty of people already claiming to do that. What I'm interested in is helping you make your connection to God within -- for spiritual guidance, love, and support. But what I’ve discovered is that many of us have a big block in the way of that connection, and the block consists of the accumulated pain, anger, fear and sadness we carry inside, often without realizing it. All of us have this to some degree, and it’s very common for some of that negativity to be directed toward God. So common in fact, that we’ve come up with alternate names for God, since the word itself is so charged. Instead of God, we call it Universal Love, or Source, or our Higher Power. Somehow those terms feels cleaner, and don’t carry the religious connotations we grew up with, that have made us uncomfortable with the word God, if not the concept. Well, I think God probably doesn’t get hung up on what we call him -- or her. But no matter what euphemism we use, deep inside we know we’re talking about something unfathomably big, powerful and beyond our control, yet an intimate part of ourselves in some mysterious way. And because of that intimate relationship, having a grudge against God always translates to being out of sync with ourselves. If the word God, or anything about the notion of God makes us uncomfortable, that very discomfort is an indication of unfinished business inside. In order to make true spiritual progress, that does need to change. God may or may not change, but it’s what’s going on inside of us that matters. It’s an inside job. And so in this program I offer a perspective you may find unique -- and one I think will bring you peace, at least on the intellectual level. Then I’ll lead you through a guided meditation to help you drop down from the intellect, and make a shift on a much deeper level, inside. Please join me. If you’ve been feeling alienated or disconnected from God, this can help.

    Is lap dancing harmless fun, providing entertainment for men and well-paid, self-empowering work for women? The lap dancing industry has long argued that it offers an everyday service within free market guidelines, but in 2010 the UK government legislated that lap dancing venues in the UK should be classed as 'sex establishments'.
    So, are lap dancers sex workers rather than exotic dancers? What attracts so many women to work within the industry? Are women being sexually exploited and their bodies used as objects for male gratification?
    Media depictions of lap dancers often fall prey to caricatured and stereotypical images. Having worked as a lap dancer herself, Jennifer Hayashi Danns knows about the industry from direct experience. In Stripped she tells her story, and gives a voice to many others who have either worked in the clubs or been directly affected by what goes on in them. In sometimes raw, direct language, the various contributors express their knowledge of the lap dancing industry and the impact it has had on their lives. These compelling narratives give dramatic perspectives into a secretive and largely undisclosed world, peeling away some of the gloss on the surface, and revealing the often seedy and desperate reality of the lap dancing industry. The second part of the book offers insightful commentary, analysis and solutions.

    Over the course of twenty-two letters, author Allison Trowbridge addresses a wide range of practical issues and ties them to larger concerns such as identity, loss, social impact as a lifestyle, wisdom in the ordinary moments, and the profound way God’s work is realized in how we live every day. Subtly weaving in today’s pressing social concerns—from poverty in our neighborhoods to human trafficking across the globe—Twenty-Two will inspire a greater sense of mission and a passion to live more fully as young women embark on their own remarkable journeys. 
    Allison Trowbridge harnesses the power of story in a series of letters to an imagined young woman wrestling with the questions that arise as she stands on the precipice of adulthood. 
    Never in history has a young woman had so many options before her, yet never has she had less direction or guidance on what to do with them. A woman at the precipice of adulthood often finds herself with more questions than answers, with more disenchantment than direction.How is she supposed to “lean in” to a successful career while also building deeply meaningful relationships?How can she care for the community around her while simultaneously developing a global mindset and changing the world?How can she be all that she is destined to be without feeling paralyzed by the pressure of so many prospects? 
    Allison Trowbridge knows this dilemma well. She remembers stepping into her twenties and wishing for a mentor to guide her through this dizzying season of life. In Twenty-Two, she becomes the mentor she was looking for. Drawing from her own experience and from the wisdom of others, she offers advice and counsel in a series of personal letters to “Ashley,” a fictional college student looking for mentorship from someone one step ahead in life.
