Summary

New York Times Bestseller 
From the New York Times bestselling author of An Altar in the World, Barbara Brown Taylor’s Learning to Walk in the Dark provides a way to find spirituality in those times when we don’t have all the answers. 
Taylor has become increasingly uncomfortable with our tendency to associate all that is good with lightness and all that is evil and dangerous with darkness. Doesn’t God work in the nighttime as well? In Learning to Walk in the Dark, Taylor asks us to put aside our fears and anxieties and to explore all that God has to teach us “in the dark.” She argues that we need to move away from our “solar spirituality” and ease our way into appreciating “lunar spirituality” (since, like the moon, our experience of the light waxes and wanes). Through darkness we find courage, we understand the world in new ways, and we feel God’s presence around us, guiding us through things seen and unseen. Often, it is while we are in the dark that we grow the most. 
With her characteristic charm and literary wisdom, Taylor is our guide through a spirituality of the nighttime, teaching us how to find our footing in times of uncertainty and giving us strength and hope to face all of life’s challenging moments.

EFT TAPPING THERAPY: Emotional Freedom Technique Handbook, gives you the basics to help you easily get started on your way to wellness and a more fulfilling life. EFT is an amazingly simple technique that can reduce stress, pain, depression, anxiety and other conditions. This Handbook has been designed to help you easily get started on your way to wellness and a more fulfilling life by taking you through the basic steps to identify the root of your problems and compose a phrase that will help trigger a healing response while tapping on specific points of your body. For many people, this type of self-help is enough. However, some of you will struggle to concentrate or get to the heart of what ails you. Author, Jennifer Michaels, urges you not to give up and says, "When I first began tapping, my affirmations were much too vague. It took a long time for me to realize I needed to be far more specific and that's when I began to see results."

Filled with dramatic real-life examples and practical exercises, it guides you through the ten most important and life-changing conversations you will ever have.Shows how to use the art of conversation and self-reflection to turn negative self-talk into positive self-talk and improve your lifeIncludes dramatic stories from Boteach's own counseling work and practical self-improvement exercisesCovers important life issues such as love, self-esteem, success, and fear of agingFrom the star of TLC's television series Shalom in the Home and author of 10 Conversations You Need to Have with Your Children and other books
