Spontaneous Evolution: Our Positive Future and a Way to Get There from Here
by Bruce Lipton, PH.D., Steve Bhaerman


Available formats: Hardcover
isbn: 978-1-4019-2580-2
Synopsis »

We’ve all heard stories of people who’ve experienced seemingly miraculous recoveries from illness, but can the same thing happen for our world? According to pioneering biologist Bruce H. Lipton, it’s not only possible, it’s already occurring. 

In Spontaneous Evolution, this world-renowned expert in the emerging science of epigenetics reveals how our changing understanding of biology will help us navigate this turbulent period in our planet’s history and how each of us can participate in this global shift.

In collaboration with political philosopher Steve Bhaerman, Dr. Lipton invites readers to reconsider:
• the “unquestionable” pillars of biology, including random evolution, survival of the fittest, and the role of DNA;
• the relationship between mind and matter;
• how our beliefs about nature and human nature shape our politics, culture, and individual lives; and
• how each of us can become planetary “stem cells” supporting the health and growth of our world.

By questioning the old beliefs that got us to where we are today and keep us stuck in the status quo, we can trigger the spontaneous evolution of our species that will usher in a brighter future.

The Rich And The Rest Of Us: A Poverty Manifesto
by avis Smiley, Cornel West


Available formats: Paperback
isbn: 978-1-4019-4063-8
Synopsis »

Record unemployment and rampant corporate avarice, empty houses but homeless families, dwindling opportunities in an increasingly paralyzed nation-these are the realities of 21st-century America, land of the free and home of the new middle class poor. Award-winning broadcaster Tavis Smiley and Dr. Cornel West, one of the nation's leading democratic intellectuals, co-hosts of Public Radio's Smiley & West , now take on the "P" word-poverty. 

The Rich and the Rest of Us is the next step in the journey that began with "The Poverty Tour: A Call to Conscience." Smiley and West's 18-city bus tour gave voice to the plight of impoverished Americans of all races, colors, and creeds. With 150 million Americans persistently poor or near poor, the highest numbers in over five decades, Smiley and West argue that now is the time to confront the underlying conditions of systemic poverty in America before it's too late. 

By placing the eradication of poverty in the context of the nation's greatest moments of social transformation- such as the abolition of slavery, woman's suffrage, and the labor and civil rights movements-ending poverty is sure to emerge as America's 21st -century civil rights struggle. 

As the middle class disappears and the safety net is shredded, Smiley and West, building on the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr., ask us to confront our fear and complacency with 12 poverty changing ideas. They challenge us to re-examine our assumptions about poverty in America-what it really is and how to eliminate it now.

All You Ever Wanted To Know From His Holiness The Dalai Lama On Happiness, Life Living, and Much More
by Dalai Lama

Available formats: Hardcover

isbn: 978-1-4019-2018-0

Synopsis »
His Holiness the Dalai Lama describes himself as "a simple Buddhist monk." However, to millions of people around the world, he embodies the highest human aspiration: to be happy. His messages of compassion, altruism, and peace are articulated in a unique secular ethic for our times and supported with techniques and practices that can help us achieve these ideals. He is the Dalai Lama—or simply, His Holiness—the epitome of the Buddhist model of loving-kindness and an incarnation of Avalokitesvara, the bodhisattva of infinite compassion and mercy. Evoking global respect and admiration, he is both a prophet and a statesman for our troubled times, yet he's intensely human and accessible. He's an inspiration to millions, yet many feel as if he touches and speaks to them personally. He is a Buddhist but belongs to all humanity. His Holiness is one of the most recognizable—and recognized—faces in the free world. This remarkable book is an edited compilation of mostly personal conversations spanning nearly 20 years between the Dalai Lama and Rajiv Mehrotra, one of his early disciples who's now the trustee and secretary of the Foundation for Universal Responsibility, which was established with the funds from the Nobel Peace Prize. Here, the Dalai Lama is a teacher to a spiritual aspirant; a divine master and a temporal leader; an ambassador for Tibet and a lovable guru-philosopher to the whole world; a practitioner of the 2,500-year-old teachings of Buddhism; a Tibetan Buddhist and an interfaith ambassador; and an intense practitioner of mind-training and an inveterate optimist. His multiple hats may appear contradictory at times, but he balances them all, living his life with ease and happiness. Within these pages, the Dalai Lama's disarming candor, his deep empathy for his student's quest, and his wisdom—garnered not just from texts  and scriptures, but also from an active engagement with life—offer  invaluable insights to us all on how we may find true happiness in our  lives.

The Future Is Now - Timely Advice for Creating a Better World
by Ogyen Trinley Dorje

Available formats: Paperback

isbn: 978-1-4019-2300-6

Synopsis »
With more than a million followers worldwide and at least 50,000 in the United States, the 17th Karmapa is one of Tibetan Buddhism's most senior lamas. His dramatic escape from Tibet and his spiritual presence have made him an instant celebrity, and Elle magazine recently named him one of its "25 people to watch." The Future is Now, which pairs contemporary photography with 108 sayings on how to live more compassionately and consciously, is the Karmapa's first mainstream work. In it, he offers advice on such  universal and personal themes as social values, the environment, freedom, responsibility, loneliness, and contentment. Fresh, bold,  timely photos and straightforward text make the ancient teachings of Buddhism accessible to everyone. Earlier this year, the Karmapa made his first trip to the West speaking to large crowds in New York, Boulder, and Seattle. It's been reported that the venues sold out based almost solely on the strength of e-mail chains. His visit generated an enormous amount of publicity including two New York Times items, a piece in Time magazine, an interview on the PBS program "Religion & Ethics News Weekly," and coverage in major Buddhist magazines.

Fractal Time - The Secret of 2012 and a New World Age
by Gregg Braden

Available formats:
Hardcover - $19.96
(4CD set OR download - click here)
isbn: 978-1-4019-2064-7

Synopsis »

Former senior computer systems designer and bestselling author Gregg Braden merges these ancient and modern world views into a powerful new model of time. Marrying the modern laws of fractal patterns to the ancient concept of cycles, he demonstrates how everything from the war and peace between nations to our most joyous relationships and personal crises are the returning patterns of our past. As each pattern returns, it carries the same conditions of previous cycles—fractal patterns that can be known, measured and predicted!

What makes this model so important today is that the returning cycles also carry a window of opportunity—a choice point—that allows us to choose a new outcome for the cycle. Braden suggests that if we can see time from this perspective, the patterns will show us what's in store for the future, and perhaps how to avoid the mistakes of our past.

After presenting the case histories that confirm the accuracy of fractal time calculations, the author crosses the traditional boundaries of science and spirituality to answer the question that must be asked: What does fractal time tell us about 2012, and beyond? Because the cycles repeat, the seed for 2012 has already happened and the pattern already exists! In a narrative format of easy-to-read science and true-life accounts, Fractal Time shows us what we can expect as we close the Great World Age described by the Mayan Calendar, and the secret to our moment in history.

Shift Happens: How to Live an Inspired Life...Starting Right Now!
by Robert Holden PH.D.


Available formats: Paperback
isbn: 978-1-4019-3170-4
Synopsis »

Two caterpillars were crawling along a tree branch one day when a butterfly flew overhead. One caterpillar said to the other, "You will never get me up in one of those things."

Shift Happens! is about personal alchemy and inner transformation. Some people "go" through life; and other people "grow" through life. Shift Happens! celebrates your unlimited potential to grow, blossom, and evolve-in spite of everything.

It is a book of hope. The term personal alchemy describes the ability to take a piece of dirt, roll it around a few times, and fashion it into a pearl. This is what an oyster does. Personal alchemy is what your grandmother called turning lemons into lemonade. It is what old wizards described as turning straw into gold.

Shift Happens! is about staying open all hours for miracles. Success, love, and happiness are only ever one thought away at most. One new perception, one fresh thought, one act of surrender, one change of heart, one leap of faith, can change your life forever.
