The Quick and the Dead Louis L'Amour 2004-08-03 When Duncan McKaskel decided to move his family west, he knew he would face dangers, and he was prepared for them. He knew about the exhausting terrain, and he was expecting the punishing elements. What he worried about was having to use violence against other men—men who would follow him and try to steal the riches that he didn’t even possess. Yet bandits were only part of McKaskel’s worries. For a mysterious stranger, Con Vallian, had appeared one night and saved his life. But was Vallian’s true interest Duncan’s wife, Susanna? And, more important, how did she feel about him? As they push on into the wilderness, Duncan must discover who is the greater threat—the thieves outside his camp or the enigmatic stranger within. . . .

Or, perhaps you or someone in your life became ill -- spiritually, physically, mentally or emotionally -- and you were desperate to find a way to heal the pain.

"21 Layers of the Soul: healing the karmic ties with friends, lovers, family and enemies" In this book, author Annemiek Douw MSc shares over 100 case histories from more than 15 years of healing work, during which time she discovered the 21 layers of the aura -- something never before revealed in any other healing book. Meticulously analysed and defined, Annemiek shows us how exploring these 21 layers can provide us with a clear blueprint of the intricate system that leads us to incarnate on the Earth. You'll learn the meaning of each of the 21 layers, and how to recognise their influence in your life, so you can start to unravel so many of the mysteries that have perplexed you for decades -- or perhaps even lifetimes. If you've ever wondered... Whether there is such a thing as 'family karma' Whether there is an ultimate plan for your life Whether we make 'soul agreements' with others before we are born Whether we can become influenced by the whole of humanity ...then, this book will give you both practical and intuitive answers to the questions you've been asking. You'll discover how these 21 layers can help explain: Why some people can't stop cheating on their spouse Why some children die in infancy Why sexual abuse is impacting your life Why the death of a loved one can sometimes make you ill Why you're just not meeting the love of your life How and why angels, guides, light beings and deceased loved ones communicate with you Why you suffer from thyroid problems, chronic fatigue syndrome, or other health issues Why some Autistic children have extraordinary (and even paranormal) perceptual abilities Why you're not recovering from cancer after your treatment is over How you suffer when you block your natural paranormal abilities And much more Simply by reading how Annemiek worked with these real-life patients to unblock each specific layer, you'll begin to heal at an energetic level and grow as a soul. And then, as you learn how to recognise the influences of these 21 layers in your own life, you can deepen your healing through five of Annemiek's unique clearing exercises, which you'll find in the back of the book. So after all your spiritual searching, if you're finally ready to find ONE book that can help you get reconnected and regain the peace and ease you so dearly desire, pick up "21 Layers of the Soul" and start to navigate the wonderful journey back to your Self.

Renzoku Ken William Durbin 2007 Kempo is one of the most ancient and effective martial arts-when taught properly. Making it so good is its complete nature. While most kempo teaching in the United States is incomplete, in its initial Asian form it is one of the most comprehensive of all arts. Kempo systems in Japan tended to be complete, with not only grappling and striking skills, but also weapons training. This is the way kiyojute ryu kempo bugei is taught. The kempo is complete. James Mitose used what is called renzoku ken to teach his most dangerous principles. To such an extent, in fact, that some people believe combination techniques are the totality of kempo. Combination techniques are central to kempo, but proper renzoku ken is more than memorizing combinations.
Acetate David A. Sanders 2013 Acetic acid and its conjugate base acetate are amazing molecules. The combination of a methyl group and a carboxylic acid/carboxylate makes acetic acid/acetate the primordium of complex organic molecules. Acetic acid is uncommon among common biological carbon sources besides gases in that it can freely diffuse across membranes. The central role of acetate in the global carbon cycle and the origin and evolution of life on earth are expertly portrayed by Ferry. Fermentation reduces biomass predominantly to acetate. Acetate is the metabolic currency between the bacteria and archaea domains of life. It is said that two-thirds of the methane produced in the biosphere is derived from acetate. An energy first hypothesis that builds on the chemoautotrophic origin of life proposal that highlights the central role of acetate thioseters is advanced. This book spans from the origin of life to the latest developments in biology and chemistry. Its chapters elucidate how the versatile acetate and its derivatives and partners are critical to the metabolism, the global carbon cycle, greenhouse gas generation and climate change, among other things.
Finding Mojo Natalie Galland 2012-06-01 What does it take to finally let go of things that just aren't working in your life? The suffering of a broken heart? Losing a job? Or maybe the painful disintegration of a long-standing friendship? It is the cruel fusion of all these things and more that leads Natalie to believe the life she's living belongs to somebody else. On discovering that her boyfriend is being unfaithful, she begins to ask questions: why does this pattern keep repeating itself over and over? Will the rest of her life continue to play out like some tragic Nabokov novel? She decides to sell her flat, say goodbye to friends and family and take a year off to wander around Russia, Mongolia, China, SE Asia and India in the hope of finding something, anything that can point her in the direction of her true self. On her journey she meets various people who help to do just that, amongst them two elderly Australian back packers travelling through Siberia, a heart broken divorcee in China, an eccentric, tattooed masseuse in Thailand and a gorgeous American fireman in Vietnam. This is a heartfelt account of tragedy that turned into a quiet yet unwavering triumph, divulged with an acute honesty that will keep you hooked until the very last page.
Fascinating Footnotes From History Giles Milton 2015-09-24 'Giles Milton is a man who can take an event from history and make it come alive . . . an inspiration for those of us who believe that history can be exciting and entertaining' Matthew Redhead, The Times Did you know that Hitler took cocaine? That Stalin robbed a bank? That Charlie Chaplin's corpse was filched and held to ransom? Giles Milton is a master of historical narrative: in his characteristically engaging prose, Fascinating Footnotes From History details one hundred of the quirkiest historical nuggets; eye-stretching stories that read like fiction but are one hundred per cent fact. There is Hiroo Onoda, the lone Japanese soldier still fighting the Second World War in 1974; Agatha Christie, who mysteriously disappeared for eleven days in 1926; and Werner Franz, a cabin boy on the Hindenburg who lived to tell the tale when it was engulfed in flames in 1937. Fascinating Footnotes From History also answers who ate the last dodo, who really killed Rasputin and why Sergeant Stubby had four legs. Peopled with a gallery of spies, rogues, cannibals, adventurers and slaves, and spanning twenty centuries and six continents, Giles Milton's impeccably researched footnotes shed light on some of the most infamous stories and most flamboyant and colourful characters (and animals) from history. (Previoulsy published in four individual epub volumes: When Hitler Took Cocaine, When Stalin Robbed a Bank, When Lenin Lost His Brain and When Churchill Slaughtered Sheep.)

Poets on Prozac Richard M. Berlin 2008-04-30 In this collection of 16 essays, poets discuss psychiatric treatment and their work. Poets on Prozac shatters the notion that madness fuels creativity by giving voice to contemporary poets who have battled myriad psychiatric disorders, including depression, schizophrenia, post-traumatic stress disorder, and substance abuse. The sixteen essays collected here address many provocative questions: Does emotional distress inspire great work? Is artistry enhanced or diminished by mental illness? What effect does substance abuse have on esthetic vision? Do psychoactive medications impinge on ingenuity? Can treatment enhance inherent talents, or does relieving emotional pain shut off the creative process? Featuring examples of each contributor’s poetry before, during, and after treatment, this original and thoughtful collection finally puts to rest the idea that a tortured soul is one’s finest muse. Honorable Mention, 2008 PROSE Award for Best Book in Psychology. “A fascinating collection of 16 essays, as insightful as they are compulsively readable. Each is honest and sharply written, covering a range of issues (depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, psychosis, substance abuse or, in acutely deadpan Andrew Hudgins’s case, “tics, twitches, allergies, tooth-grinding, acid reflux, migraines . . . and shingles”) along with treatment methods, incorporating personal anecdotes and excerpts from poems and journals. . . . Anyone affected by mental illness or intrigued by the question of its role in the arts should find this volume absorbing.” —Publishers Weekly “Berlin has done a marvelous job of showing us how ordinary poets are; the selected poets have shown us that mental illness shares with other experiences a capacity to reveal our humanity.” —Metapsychology

The Kidult Handbook Nicole Booz 2018-05-15 Adulting is hard! But “kidulting”— engaging in nostalgic childhood activities to relieve stress, like playing with your old favorite toys, participating in games and activities from your youth, and even snacking on the foods you enjoyed as a kid— isn’t. Let this book be your guide to indulging your inner child. “Kidulting” is a thing, and it’s growing! Especially popular among millennials, the term “kidulting” refers to engaging in activities from your childhood, sometimes with a grown-up twist. Psychology Today points out that playing like a kid helps you look at the world with fresh eyes—or “beginner’s mind”—which allows you to slow down and focus. The Kidult Handbook is a fun and informative guide to healthy escapism through play. Much like adult coloring books, kidulting is a way of focusing your mind on something fun and creative to relieve stress. But this book goes way beyond just coloring—it includes 160 ideas for fun, from timeless classics like building blanket and pillow forts, to generation-specific ideas, from millennials to boomers. Interspersed throughout are fun facts and trivia about games through the ages. Most activities are unplugged and screen-free, and range from solitary pursuits to ones you can share with a friend or two. Feeling young again has never been so easy!
Courage Bernard Waber 2002-10-28 What is courage? Certainly it takes courage for a firefighter to rescue someone trapped in a burning building, but there are many other kinds of courage too. Everyday kinds that normal, ordinary people exhibit all the time, like “being the first to make up after an argument,” or “going to bed without a nightlight.” Bernard Waber explores the many varied kinds of courage and celebrates the moments, big and small, that bring out the hero in each of us.
Portrait of an Artist as a Young Poseur - Boston 1974 to 1983 Doug Holder 2015-05-21 "Doug Holder is a poet of the old city, the city of our fathers, of the 1950s and later. Mr. Holder writes poems like notes in a diary. I found myself struck by their economy, wit, and urban melancholy... He has a voice unlike that of any of his contemporaries. Holder is a poet of the street and coffeehouses, an observer of the everyday. He writes of old Marxists, security guards and his relationship to his deceased father-themes of the common life. I am drawn to these poems as I am to the poetry of Philip Levine and the prose of James T. Farrell. But Holder's poetry is deeper than that. He sees the world not for what it is, but on his own terms. He is living in the poem rather than in poetry." Sam Cornish, First Boston Poet Laureate

Beaumonster Jesse Dayton 2021-11-09 A BEHIND-THE-SCENES LOOK AT THE ADVENTURES OF FIRST-RATE STORYTELLER, GUITARIST, AND RELENTLESS ROAD WARRIOR JESSE DAYTON Jesse Dayton’s story reads like a who’s who of American music. In his debut memoir Beaumonster, Dayton reveals the stranger-than-fiction encounters and outlandish experiences that have ensued across his wide-ranging career. After sneaking into night clubs to play gigs in his youth, eighteen-year-old Dayton and his trio began packing clubs and theaters across Houston, Dallas, and Austin. His first solo record which featured great luminaries like Doug Sahm, Flaco Jiménez, and Johnny Gimble, hit number one on the Americana radio charts and then he was off to the races— touring the world solo and with punk legends Social Distortion and the Supersuckers. While doing press in Nashville, he caught the attention of Waylon Jennings and was whisked off to Woodland Studios, where he was greeted by none other than Johnny Cash, who told Dayton, “We’ve been waiting for you.” Since then, Dayton’s ride across the entertainment industry, traversing genres and formats, has only gotten wilder. Whether it’s playing guitar on records and film with the likes of Cash, Ray Price, Willie Nelson, Johnny Bush, Glen Campbell and Duff McKagan; writing and recording soundtracks for horror director/rockstar Rob Zombie; directing Malcolm McDowell and Sid Haig in his own horror movie; filling in for the iconic punk band X’s guitarist; joining Ryan Bingham on tour; or the many solo and guest projects he continues to work on, Dayton is down to leave his mark, making Beaumonster a uniquely entertaining tale that will impress new and old fans alike.

Calm Clarity Due Quach 2018-05-15 Author of the viral Medium piece, "Poor and Traumatized at Harvard," Due Quach shares her Calm Clarity program to show readers how to deal with toxic stress and adversity. We often don't realize how much control we have over our thoughts, feelings, and actions--on some days, the most minor irritation can upset us, but on others, we are in our best form and can rise to challenges with grace. These fluctuations depend on the neural networks firing in our brains, and we have the power to consciously break hardwired thought patterns. Due Quach developed an intimate understanding of the brain during her personal journey of healing from post-traumatic stress disorder. According to Quach, people function in three primary emotional states: Brain 1.0, Brain 2.0, and Brain 3.0. In Brain 1.0, people act out of fear and self-preservation. Brain 2.0 involves instant gratification and chasing short-term rewards at the expense of long-term well-being. Brain 3.0 is a state of mind that Quach calls "Calm Clarity," in which people's actions are aligned with their core values. As Quach confronted PTSD and successfully weaned herself off medication, she learned how to activate, exercise, and strengthen Brain 3.0 like a muscle. In Calm Clarity, she draws on the latest scientific research and ancient spiritual traditions alike to show us how we too can take ownership of our thoughts, feelings, and actions in order to be our best selves.
