Summary

A mother’s search for the son she gave up uncovers terrifying secrets in a Minnesota town in this “masterfully depicted true-crime tale” (Publishers Weekly). In 1962, Jerry Sherwood gave up her newborn son, Dennis, for adoption. Twenty years later, she set out to find him—only to discover he had died before his fourth birthday. The immediate cause was peritonitis, but the coroner had never decided the mode of death, writing “deferred” rather than indicate accident, natural causes, or homicide. This he did even though the autopsy photos showed Dennis covered from head to toe in ugly bruises, his clenched fists and twisted facial expression suggesting he had died writhing in pain.   Harold and Lois Jurgens, a middle-class, churchgoing couple in picturesque White Bear Lake, Minnesota, had adopted Dennis and five other foster children. To all appearances, they were a normal midwestern family, but Jerry suspected that something sinister had happened in the Jurgens household. She demanded to know the truth about her son’s death.   Why did authorities dismiss evidence that marked Dennis as an endangered child? Could Lois Jurgens’s brother, a local police lieutenant, have interfered in the investigation? And most disturbing of all, why had so many people who’d witnessed Lois’s brutal treatment of her children stay silent for so long? Determined to find answers, local detectives and prosecutors rebuilt the case brick by brick, finally exposing the shocking truth behind a nightmare in suburbia.   A finalist for the Edgar Award, A Death in White Bear Lake is “a distinguished entry in the annals of crime documentary,” and a vivid portrait of the all-American town that harbored a sadistic killer (The Washington Post).

    “True faith is not the effort of believing in something, but the consciousness of a certainty.” the author writes believing that faith is the cornerstone of all the systems of belief. Only through a clear, real and concrete experience a human being can reach awareness and then move his\her mountains.
    In the first part of the book it faces up the nature of perception, how it brings each person to see the world through their beliefs. The second shows the seven steps we have to follow to have a direct impact on creating our own reality, describing the descending way, from the divine to the manifestation, and the existing relationship between the seven chakras and the seven deadly sins that prevents the ability of men to manifest their desires, that brings human beings away from their divine nature, the image and likeness of God.
    
    Marco Lazzara, spiritual seeker for over twenty years, had deep mystic experiences and wrote his first book in a flow of consciousness. He is Yoga teacher, certified by the European Federation of Oriental Arts and he wrote a chapter for the latest book of Joe Vitale, The Abundance Factor.

    Kemò-vad represents a form of dynamic meditation which was used thousands of years ago by the ancient druids of Europe. The name means “dancing in the wind”, or living the rhythm of cosmic development. It is a technique that gathers together the elements of dynamic meditation, holistic gymnastics and the sacred dance of the natural Peoples. It represents something between gymnastic art and a soft martial art, where the opponent is not seen as another person, but as the chance to interact with existence. Through Kemò-vad it is possible to activate and direct the Korà, vital, evolutionary inner energy, towards the achievement of personal cosmic consciousness. Dancing in the wind to become air in the air, to be able to reach the alchemical dimension of spiritual transformation of the personal inner being. In the wind we find the silence with which the true nature of existence shows itself. It is a silence that makes us forget the issues of the moment and leads us, like children, to the threshold of the mystery that animates the Universe.
