    In early 1998, Rasha began a profound dialogue with the universal Presence, “Oneness� --the Divinity we all share. As Oneness guided her step by step through the agonies and the exultation of an experiential voyage to God-realization, Rasha painstakingly documented the principles that lay the foundation for a new level of understanding of the phenomenon we call “life.† In just one generation, our lives and our world have been shaken beyond recognition by unprecedented levels of change. The rules of life we were taught to bank on -- and the bastions of scientific proof that held it all together -- have begun to shift. We’re discovering that the very foundation on which our world rests is no longer on solid ground. In its place, another kind of truth has emerged – a profound sense of Divine inter-connectedness we’ve begun to discover within the depths of each of us. Now, as a race of beings, we’ve begun to bridge the worlds of science and spirit, as we explore and recognize the validity of these astonishing concepts.
    In this groundbreaking work, we are guided to understand the timeless mystery of our existence. We discover the clues that empower us to create the kinds of lives we long for, and how to release the vibrational constraints that prevent us from realizing our dreams. We learn to recognize the patterns of emotion that undermine our best intentions. And we begin to re-direct the focus of our attention to harmonize with the flow of the powerful energies accelerating all around us – and with the power of Creation that drives it.  Oneness speaks in a voice that reaches out to the heart of each of us. The words are personal – and the experience of embracing the understandings they hold is transformational. We come away from the simple act of reading feeling like we’ve been touched by something indescribable – and holy.  Ultimately, Oneness addresses our timeless quest for oneness with the Divine with revelations that reveal the mystery of our existence. In the process, we come to grasp the significance of the choice each of us has made to be present, in physical form, in these extraordinary times.

    A renowned philosopher of the mind, also known for his groundbreaking work on Buddhism and cognitive science, Evan Thompson combines the latest neuroscience research on sleep, dreaming, and meditation with Indian and Western philosophy of the mind, casting new light on the self and its relation to the brain.   Thompson shows how the self is a changing process, not a static thing. When we are awake we identify with our body, but if we let our mind wander or daydream, we project a mentally imagined self into the remembered past or anticipated future. As we fall asleep, the impression of being a bounded self distinct from the world dissolves, but the self reappears in the dream state. If we have a lucid dream, we no longer identify only with the self within the dream. Our sense of self now includes our dreaming self, the “I” as dreamer. Finally, as we meditate—either in the waking state or in a lucid dream—we can observe whatever images or thoughts arise and how we tend to identify with them as “me.” We can also experience sheer awareness itself, distinct from the changing contents that make up our image of the self.   Contemplative traditions say that we can learn to let go of the self, so that when we die we can witness the dissolution of the self with equanimity. Thompson weaves together neuroscience, philosophy, and personal narrative to depict these transformations, adding uncommon depth to life’s profound questions. Contemplative experience comes to illuminate scientific findings, and scientific evidence enriches the vast knowledge acquired by contemplatives.

    Charlotte Graham is at the center of the most famous kidnapping in Chicago history. The task force of FBI and local cops found her two abductors, killed them, rescued her, but it took four very long years. The fact she was found less than three miles from her home, had been there the entire time, haunts them. She's changed her identity, found a profession she loves, and rebuilt her life. She's never said a word--to the cops, to her doctors, to family--about those four years. A family legacy has brought her back to Chicago where a reporter is writing a book about the kidnapping. The cops who worked the case are cooperating with him. Her options are limited: Hope the reporter doesn't find the full truth, or break her silence about what happened. And her silence is what has protected her family for years. Bryce Bishop doesn't know her past, he only knows she has coins to sell from her grandfather's estate--and that the FBI director for the Chicago office made the introduction. The more he gets to know Charlotte, the more interested he becomes, an interest encouraged by those closest to her. But nothing else is working in his favor--she's decided she is single for life, she struggles with her faith, and she's willing to forego a huge inheritance to keep her privacy. She's not giving him much of an opening to work with.Charlotte wants to trust him. She needs to tell him what happened. Because a crime cops thought was solved, has only opened another chapter...

    The Pfeifferberg Chronicles: Book One: Descent from White Mountains is a glimpse into life in the days of Noah, before and after the Great Flood. Although sourced primarily from the Book of Genesis, the author offers an exciting and unique story-line by weaving ancient Celtic chronicles with elements of Caucasian tradition and archeological discoveries that have enlightened our historical perspective. Book One in the trilogy is the story of the adventurous life of Japheth, the Great Voice, and the historical progenitor of all Caucasian tribes, and about his seven magnificent sons: Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras. These highly intelligent and fit ancients where in essence the greatest and purest of every Caucasian nation; we are the physical and existential sons and daughters of these super men. These titans were the "wild at heart" that John Eldredge wrote about. Curious readers will learn what occurred after Noah’s prayer of blessing over Japheth and the expansion of Japheth’s seed into all the coastal territories of the earth. Did you ever wonder what it was like in the days of Noah? Is there a longing for adventure in your heart? Could you be the chronicler for your posterity? Dr. Bill Cooper, After the Flood, writes, "The Pfeifferberg Chronicles, I have no doubt, will often be imitated by future authors, and deservedly so. It has set an important benchmark." Descent from White Mountains will inspire you to take a long look at yourself, your ancestry, and perhaps, like Mr. Pfeiffer, your tribal genesis.
