This volume brings together nine distinguished thinkers on the subject, including James Conant, author of the seminal paper “The Search for Logically Alien Thought.”

The Disease of Virgins Book Excerpt:

From an acclaimed author in the field, this is a compelling study of the origins and history of the disease commonly seen as afflicting young unmarried girls. Understanding of the condition turned puberty and virginity into medical conditions, and Helen King stresses the continuity of this disease through history,depsite enormous shifts in medical understanding and technonologies, and drawing parallels with the modern illness of anorexia. Examining its roots in the classical tradition all the way through to its extraordinary survival into the 1920s, this study asks a number of questions about the nature of the disease itself and the relationship between illness, body images and what we should call‘normal’ behaviour. This is a fascinating and clear account which will prove invaluable not just to students of classical studies, but will be of interest to medical professionals also.

Silencio Mental Book Excerpt:

For more than twenty-five years, Dr. Bertrand Martin has been teaching meditation for combating stress and achieving an overall better quality of life. In his new book, he talks about his techniques and how to use them to achieve mental silence. Todays society suffers from stress, anxiety, depression, burnout, negativity, and much more, leading to unhappiness, diseases, and consumption of medicaments and drugs, Dr Martin says. Regular practice of mental silence meditation can prevent and cure many ailments. It also treads the path of full realization of ones potential. Although stress is a normal part of life, too much of it can have debilitating consequences. Dr. Martin, a psychiatrist and ayurvedic physician, has been teaching meditation to his patients since 1990. This has helped about 95 percent of his patients experience mental silence, a feeling he describes as a totally peacefully state of consciousness in which thinking process stops and a deep physical and mental relaxation is experienced. He shares his techniques for achieving mental silence in his eponymous book. It is specifically written for people living busy, fast-paced lives who want to meditate efficiently and achieve fast results. The steps shared are practical, measurable, clearly explained, and easy to practice. Dr. Bertrand Piccard, a psychiatrist and explorer, recommends the method. If you have picked up this book, it probably means that the search for pioneering solutions to further improve your quality of life is a matter that excites your curiosity. Not all of us can be discoverers of the universe, but we can go a long way just by exploring our own selves. Our mind is the richest, most valuable, and most efficient resource that is permanently available to each of us. Dr. Martin is proposing a conscious and serene method to shape up our mental, spiritual, and physical capacities. The method is simple, fast, and effective. Let yourself go, and you may land way beyond your usual certainties.

Fate or Destiny Book Excerpt:

Shattered by the betrayal of those she loves and trusts unreservedly, this is the true story of an enchanted personal journey that the writer fi nds herself undertaking, while all she wishes for is to "wake up dead." Little does she know what these very words will come to mean. As her natural world crumbles around her, a supernatural world, full of wonder and awe, open up to her, disclosing new dimensions of reality beyond the realm of her imagination or comprehension. Scraps of memories from a long forgotten past gradually resurface into her consciousness. Interspersed with visions and ominous dreams, these tell her of things to come, which shake her up and awaken her to unsuspected possibilities. "Is life predetermined?" is her quest for the truth. Piecing the fragments together to make sense of it all, her new reality unfolds like a detective story. As the alchemical processes of transformation take place in her interior world, "Life, Death, Resurrection" take on a surprising new meaning: "Nano, Wake up!"

International Case Studies in Mental Health Book Excerpt:

Senel Poyrazli's and Chalmer Thompson's International Case Studies in Mental Health presents a variety of global cases from both developed and developing countries, detailing descriptions of the people who are seeking help to eliminate their distress and of the exceptional practitioners who provide the help. In most of the cases, the practitioner is someone who shares a similar heritage with her or his help-seeker, and who is influenced at least partly by Western psychotherapy traditions. Each chapter also is a showcase of how scholars pair up with mental health practitioners to create a work that weaves together contextual and individual qualities to inform an understanding of the help-seeker and the intervention. This book aims to help prepare both mental health trainees and practicing professionals to be effective in the provision of healing in their work with people in different regions of the world. Consequently, the authors hope to offer practitioners a glimpse of what can be achieved in these regions by people whose reputations within the respective communities are strong.

Quantum Love Book Excerpt:

Falling in love is a thrilling, transcendent experience . . . but what about staying in love? Once the intense excitement of a new relationship starts to fade, you may think your only options are to somehow recapture that early magic or settle for a less than fulfilling love life. Now love, sex, and relationship expert Laura Berman, Ph.D., taps the latest scientific and metaphysical research to offer an inspiring alternative: a higher level of love beckoning you to move forward, not backward. Using the essential truth we’ve learned from the study of quantum physics—the fact that at our molecular core, each of us is simply a vessel of energy—Dr. Berman explains how you can use what’s happening in your inner world to create a level of passion, connection, and bliss in your relationship that you’ve never imagined possible. Drawing on her clinical practice and case studies as well as her personal journey, she guides you to: • Plot your unique energetic frequency of love with her Quantum Lovemap • Work consciously with the energy of your body, heart, and mind • Make four key commitments designed to raise your energetic profile • Bring your frequency into harmony with your partner’s so that you can grow together • Learn how to have Quantum Sex (which is every bit as good as it sounds) We can’t go back to the honeymoon phase, but there is something so much better available. Quantum Love lets you reach new heights of intimacy as you gain a fuller sense of purpose in life and love.

The Power of Concentration Book Excerpt:

This May Be the Most Extraordinary and Life-Changing Book You Ever Read... In this epic yet remarkably simple volume, Theron Q. Dumont-aka William Walker Atkinson, author of the legendary work The Kybalion-shows how the proper concentration of thought can bring you into an entirely new world of ability, success, and effectiveness. We grossly undervalue the power of our thoughts, and through this simple, determined program of mental focus, we can vastly increase our personal power, charisma, success-potential, and self-mastery. Newly abridged and introduced by PEN Award-winning historian and New Thought writer Mitch Horowitz, this condensation provides you, in a pleasingly brief space of time, all the elements and principles of Atkinson's mind-power program, which you can put into use right now to create a better, more dynamic tomorrow.
