Summary

Begin to meditate—or renew your         practice—with thisstraightforward guide that is free         from pretension and complication.         
Is there a way you can learn to slow down         and experience yourself more fully, your life more deeply, and         other people in the present moment without adopting a new         religious or philosophical ideology? Clark Strand answers         with a clear and simple "yes!" Short, compelling         reflections show you how to make meditation a part of your         daily life, without the complication of gurus, mantras,         retreats, or treks to distant monasteries.      
What is the proper way to breathe?          Where should I meditate? What should I sit on?          How often should I practice? You'll find the answers         surprising as Strand breaks down modern-day stereotypes about         meditation and leaves the one thing a successful meditation         practice truly needs: you.

Yet no matter how hard Lucy strives, she feels uncertain that she'll ever find redemption.Dale Wyeth has a deep mistrust of modern-day "advances" and the dependency they create. The young Englisher's interest in living off the grid is fueled further when he meets Christian Flaud, Lucy's father. Dale appreciates the self-sufficient ways of the Old Order Amish, and Christian invites him to learn more about them by staying at the family farm.As Christian and Dale grow closer, developing a father-son rapport, Lucy begins to question what Dale's being there might mean for her. Could God be testing her? Or is it possible that even the most unworthy heart--and two people from very different walks of life--can somehow find a new beginning?

    Woven from Joseph Campbell’s previously unpublished work, this volume explores Judeo-Christian symbols and metaphors — and their misinterpretations — with the famed mythologist’s characteristic conversational warmth and accessible scholarship.
     
    Campbell’s insights highlight centuries of confusion between literal and metaphorical interpretations of Western religious symbols that are, he argues, perennially relevant keys to spiritual understanding and mystical revelation
     
    Reviews:
     
    “[A] romp through the Judeo-Christian tradition — a lightning-paced tour with an extremely knowledgeable and provocative guide to illuminate some intriguing, untrammeled paths.”
     
    — Publishers Weekly (starred review)
     
    “It is Campbell the armchair speaker who shines through, buoyant with life and with comments that are eerily relevant to current times.”
     
    — Parabola
     
    “The work confirms the commonality of the human experience. A much-needed prescription in today’s world.”
