Summary

“Some of the most compelling, cutting-edge ideas about who we are and what kind of world we live in. This is a daring book—and a great read!”—Glenn Hartelius, PhD, coeditor of the International Journal of Transpersonal Studies   Have you ever looked up at the night sky and wondered “What is the universe?” In this lively and engaging collection of interviews, astronomer Stephan Martin talks with some of today’s most innovative and cutting-edge thinkers on the nature of the universe and our relationship to it. Scientists, mystics, indigenous elders, and cultural creatives all share their unique voices on the nature of reality, the interplay of science and religion, the future of humanity, and the role of each person in a mysterious and evolving universe. Filled with rich insight, dynamic discussion, and penetrating wisdom, Cosmic Conversations asks the fundamental questions about the universe many of us have wondered about, yet few have explored in-depth, questions such as:   Do time, space, and matter really exist? Can the universe be inside us, outside us, or both? Is the universe alive, conscious, and intelligent? Where are we in the cosmic evolutionary picture?   A compelling journey from the farthest reaches of outer space to the innermost realms of the human heart, Cosmic Conversations will change the way you look at the universe (and yourself) forever.   “An excellent contribution to the philosophical revival that is taking place in the marketplace of ideas. Stephan’s searching and heartfelt questions bring out the best of the authors he interviews.”—Steve McIntosh, author of The Presence of the Infinite

    Alchemy is the art of transformation. At its simplest, the alchemist turns base metals into gold. However, this is only one dimension of alchemy—at a more sophisticated level the alchemist's "base metal" is symbolic of himself that needs to be worked upon and the "gold" produced is the alchemist himself in his or her quest to perfect his own nature. In short, true alchemy is a discipline involving physical, psychological and spiritual work aimed at producing wholeness and enlightenment.From the origins of alchemy, both reputed and documented, Cherry Gilchrist's lively and sympathetic narrative takes the reader from the alchemical interests of the ancient Egyptians to the flowering of alchemy in the 17th century. She also elucidates the complexities of alchemical symbolism and examines the ways in which alchemy has developed in the 20th century.

    There are places that turn up in literature or in film—mystical and legendary places whose names may be familiar but about which we know little. We nod knowingly at the reference, but are often left wondering about places such as Atlantis, the lost land overwhelmed by the sea, or El Dorado, the fabulous city that vanished somewhere in the South American jungles. Other names are more evocative—Mount Olympus, the Garden of Eden, the mystic Isle of Avalon, and Davy Jones' Locker.But did such places actually exist and if so, where were they, and what really happened? What are the traditions and legends associated with them? In the fascinating new book, Lost Lands, Forgotten Realms, historian Dr. Bob Curran sets out to find the answers by journeying to the far-flung corners of the world and to the outer reaches of human imagination.

    Effortless by Greg McKeown - Book Summary • Important note: this is not the original book, this is an audiobook summary of "Effortless: Make it Easier to Do What Matters Most by Greg McKeown"  
     
    About  
    Greg McKeown’s first book, Essentialism, was all about how eliminating the unnecessary can help us identify and prioritize what matters most in our lives. And in his second book, Effortless, Greg teaches us how to take seamless-yet-focused action on what matters most in our lives. McKeown reveals he wrote this book to help you lighten your burdens, not to downplay them; to make it easier to focus on what matters most. The Effortless State is when you feel fully focused on your work—you don’t feel rushed, but you do feel present; you don’t feel overwhelmed, but you do feel capable; you don’t feel like you’re working on the wrong thing, because you’ve already identified the right thing to work on in any given moment. When these elements are in place, you can take effortless action. In this book summary, we’ll cover how to make that happen. 
     
    Here’s what you’ll learn about in this book summary: How to identify—and make it easier to do—what matters most to you in life.How the biggest thing keeping us from doing what matters is the false assumption that it must require tremendous effort.How to boost your productivity and focus by making the easy but pointless things harder to do, while making the essential and meaningful things easier to do.And much, much more… 
     
    Tweetable Summary  
    Life doesn’t have to be as hard and complicated as we make it. Simplify and take action.

    Luxuriant Environmentalism Make a huge, positive, global difference from your own home! Prioritize comfort over sacrifice while saving thousands of dollars. Explore dozens of solutions and their impacts on carbon footprint, petroleum footprint, toxic footprint, and other environmental issues. 
    If 20% of the population implemented half the solutions in this book, it would solve the biggest global problems. All without writing to politicians, joining protests, signing petitions, or being angry at the people that are causing the problems. 
    Good solutions are often different from conventional environmental wisdom. The average American adult has a carbon footprint of 30 tons per year. Replacing a petroleum car with an electric car will cut 2 tons. But if you live in a cold climate and you switch from electric heat to a rocket mass heater, you will cut 27 tons!  
    Join Paul and Shawn on a journey featuring simple alternatives that you may have never heard of — alternatives which are about building a more symbiotic relationship with nature so we can all be even lazier.Nurture nature and nature nurtures us all.

    Do you ever wonder if you have what it takes to start a new enterprise?  Do you have ideas from time to time that you wish you could convert to a business?  Do you dream of becoming an entrepreneur? Is there a GrubHub, a tumblr, a novel, a production company, or a game like Cards Against Humanity somewhere in you? 
    
    After running businesses and teaching students for many years, Verinder Syal has come to believe that entrepreneurs lie within virtually all of us.  And in this dynamic, idea-packed live session,  Verinder will teach you the best of his ideas on entrepreneurship - the same ideas he presents in his incredibly popular course at Northwestern University.  Verinder believes that whoever has the will and desire to become an entrepreneur most certainly can learn the skills to become an entrepreneur.  And this session will provide you with the motivation and knowledge to begin  that journey. You must provide the will and desire, and you must be willing to start.  A journey of 1,000 miles, it is said, starts with a single step.
    
    In this  session, you'll learn: What is entrepreneurship? Where do new ideas come from? What does it take to be an entrepreneur? What are some simple ways to get started? (Verinder will share with you two simple Quick Starter Tools - an Idea Generator and a Business Evaluator - that you can start using immediately.)
