Summary

First published in 1998 and updated with a new preface by the author, The Art of Pilgrimage is a sacred travel guide in book form that is full of inspiration for the spiritual traveler.Award-winning writer and filmmaker and host of the acclaimed Global Spirits series seen on PBS and Link TV, Phil Cousineau weaves stories, myths, parables, and quotes from famous travelers with practical suggestions and accounts of modern-day pilgrims to show that there is something sacred waiting to be discovered in virtually every journey.  Connecting these voices is a series of meditations that suggest different ways to practice what pilgrims and poets have done for centuries, to see with the “eyes of the heart.”  With more than 70 illustrations, this book is for the traveler who longs for something more than diversion and escape.The Art of Pilgrimage shows that every journey can be sacred, soulful, and transformative if it is undertaken with a desire for spiritual risk and renewal.  Whether traveling to Mecca or Memphis, Stonehendge or Cooperstown, one’s journey becomes meaningful when the traveler’s heart and imagination are open to experiencing the sacred.Reviews of The Art of the Pilgrimage:“If Joseph Campbell, the Dalai Lama, and Bill Moyers were to have collaborated on a book about journeys. . . I suspect it would look very much like The Art of Pilgrimage.” —Austin American Statesman“Pilgrim, read this book.  Whatever your longing, path, or destination, Phil Cousineau gives you the most valuable gear you could pack in your satchel – how to travel outward to the edges of the world while simultaneously journey to the depths of your soul.” —Anthony Lawlor, Foundation for Consciousness in Architecture“Sorely needed in this dispirited and disenchanted world.” —Bill Moyers

    How would you like the ability to literally be any person you want to be?Any character at all!How about the ability to elicit laughter and good feelings at will from any target? Just look at Conan O'Brein and other professional comedians, and compare their ability to generate high levels of buying temperature as opposed to the best PUAs- including Mystery!  Videos of this exists in Youtube, and their just not in the same league!How about PUAs acting like the prize, their Pimp, Alpha whatever as opposed to real-life dweebs who play these convincing characters on the big screen? Again the comparison is unfair, and these professionally trained Actors and Comedians are just light years beyond any PUA!The purpose of this book then is to introduce to you what should be standard training in the pickup arts that sadly only a very tiny percentage of the community are trained in and see the game this way!One way to professionalize and improve your game and performance is to actually embrace and treat the pickup arts as partly a performance art medium.

    I practise my shock-horror face in the mirror for the seventh time. 'My husband, he's . . . dead.' 
     
    Bethan Phillips has only one thing on her mind: killing her rich and elderly husband for his fortune. But after several thwarted attempts, it is a horrific accident while holidaying together in Snowdonia that takes Humphrey down.
     
    Now she must pretend he's alive, continuing social gatherings alone under the guise he is undertaking business abroad. Because someone witnessed her leaving Humphrey to die, and should the police investigate his death they'll discover the series of 'accidents' he's survived in the previous few days... and it won't take them long to connect the dots.
     
    There are many reasons Bethan would rather the police didn't look too closely at her. Or the life she lived before becoming Bethan Philips. Unfortunately for her, DI Emma Locke is on the case.
     
    A gripping new psychological thriller, Kiss Me, Kill Me is smart, sly and unforgettable. You won't be able to put it down.

    Purposeful Breathing - Reset...

    Purposeful Breathing is a practical, user-friendly guide to simple breathing skills that can rapidly reduce states you don’t want (such as stress and anxiety) and increase states you do want (such as feeling stronger, performing better or relaxing).
     
    The breath is a remarkably powerful mind-body connection. Anxiety, anger, deep calm or steady concentration each have their own patterns of breathing and we move between different styles of breathing every day without usually realizing it. If we can recognize these styles of breathing, we can also consciously change them and this in turn produces change in the emotional state.
     
    People usually think of thoughts, feelings and physical states as different things, but if we think of moving between different ‘modes’ — survival mode, calm modes, anxious states — then it is easy to see that ways of thinking, feeling, perceiving and breathing are all interlinked. The breath can then be used as the key to change these modes.
     
    For anyone suffering from anxiety, feeling calmer can happen in a breath or two. For anyone wanting to boost performance, the right breathing skills will help them to get into ‘the zone’ of peak performance. Purposeful Breathing also teaches breathing skills for longer term health and healing, all of which are informed by new discoveries from psychology and neuroscience.

    (BONUS! Includes Audio recordings of the actual routines in the book! All 700 of them!) Download Link found inside!It will give added insights on the overall game strategy to put back routines that were missed in standard teachings from  routine based systems, that only produced "Social Robots".The mistake of the old teachings is they had you memorize random routines, although were useful? Were simply out of context in the flow of conversations from the "sets" or targets. If you were naturally talking about Cars, you had to transition into talking about Cs and U smiles and gay cats? That's retarded!True routine game does not need you to force segue routines, just so you can use them! You have to roll with the punches (devastating blows at that) and flow naturally! The feeling should be as effortless as if you were doing Natural game or engaged in normal conversations with real people.This book has enough canned materials or templates that can be customized and reworded (highly encouraged) to fit exactly how you converse, and your own unique game styles and personality.As with the problem of those doing routines? They only had a miniscule collection of routines memorized.  They were obscure topics, out of the way in typical conversations, and not easy to implement in conversations. This is because the Seducer has no way to INTERNALIZE and have ready access to the materials! This is also why the audio recordings are included to serve as your Line Feeder, anytime, anywhere, even if you're doing another task! So you can practice even while sleeping and really absorb the materials through different modes of internalizations.This book series' purpose is not just to give you routines, but for you to ABSORB and actually have ready memory access to the materials whenever  you need them in the field! Over 700 hundred of them!
