Summary of Robert Donald Cooley s The Genius of Flexibility Book Excerpt:

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 I had a near-death experience in 1976, which profoundly affected my life. I was never comfortable, and I couldn’t find any position that was restful or relaxing. I was disconnected from my life, having lost my way. I was unable to attach to anything or anybody. #2 I had been experimenting with stretching, and I was convinced that it was the right idea to heal myself. I knew there must be a secret to stretching that would allow me to be as flexible as those lucky few who seemed to be born that way. #3 I began to stretch my muscles, and as I did, I realized that muscles can actually stretch and contract at the same time. I developed more and more stretches, and I learned that each muscle needed to be stretched on the opposite side before being stretched itself. #4 I contracted my muscles while stretching, and I was surprised by the increases in my flexibility. I thought I could get results faster if I stretched for longer periods of time and did more repeats of the same stretch.

Hate Speech and Democratic Citizenship Book Excerpt:

Most modern democracies punish hate speech. Less freedom for some, they claim, guarantees greater freedom for others. Heinze rejects that approach, arguing that democracies have better ways of combatting violence and discrimination against vulnerable groups without having to censor speakers. Critiquing dominant free speech theories, Heinze explains that free expression must be safeguarded not just as an individual right, but as an essential attribute of democratic citizenship. The book challenges contemporary state regulation of public discourse by promoting a stronger theory of what democracy is and what it demands. Examining US, European, and international approaches, Heinze offers a new vision of free speech within Western democracies.

Stalking Wild Psoas Book Excerpt:

Weaving together biology, living systems thinking, and somatic movement, these nine short essays will inspire somatic therapists, bodyworkers, and movement educators Liz Koch, author of Core Awareness and The Psoas Book, seeks to dissolve the objectification of "body" in order to reconceptualize human beings as biologically intelligent, self-organizing, and self-healing. Specifically addressing educators and therapists, she delves into the conceptual framework of core by decolonizing the popular mechanistic thinking of psoas as muscle, inviting the reader on a journey toward reengaging with life's creative processes. The book illuminates the limitations of the predominant paradigm of body and actively explores psoas as a vital, intelligent messenger that links us to an expansive network of profound possibilities. Employing biomorphic and embryonic paradigms, Koch redefines psoas as smart, expressive tissue that is both elemental and universal. Named after her popular exploratory workshops of the same name, Stalking Wild Psoas encourages all readers to nourish integrity and claim self-efficacy as creative and expressive individuals.

Core Awareness Revised Edition Book Excerpt:

Core Awareness, Revised Edition: Enhancing Yoga, Pilates, Exercise, and Dance offers a guide to Core Awareness, a body-oriented approach that explores the practice of bringing focus and attention to inner sensation as the means of cultivating an innate capacity for expressive movement. Developed by somatic educator and author Liz Koch, the book's Core Awareness movements, stretches, and mindfulness explorations are designed to enhance sensory development and shift readers from the standard paradigm of the body as an "isolated object" to a holistic paradigm of the human being as part of a living process of dynamic expression. This shift in perspective offers practitioners and teachers of movement, yoga, pilates, bodywork, exercise, and dance an empowering model for self-healing and the key to increasing strength, gaining flexibility, preventing injury, and improving resiliency. Describing the practice of moving from one's core, Koch highlights the importance of engaging the psoas muscle—located on either side of the spine—to integrate the body, mind, emotion, and spirit. Koch also discusses the pelvis as the foundation of our physical core and the vital connection with our bones to gain a sense of support, nourishment, joint integrity, skeletal balance, and healthy muscle tone. Rewritten with updated information, this revised edition includes 247 new photos and 25 new Core Awareness explorations—with 64 in total. A suggested reading list at the end of the book provides resources for continuing the development of the ideas presented within the book. From the Trade Paperback edition.

The Genius of Desperation Book Excerpt:

If necessity has been the mother of invention throughout the history of professional football, it could also be said that desperation is the father. Rare are the football innovations that have occurred without an owner, general manager, coach, or player up against the wall and reaching for a way to succeed anyway. In this meticulously researched, lively book, Bleacher Report lead NFL scout Doug Farrar traces the schematic history of the pro game through these "if this/then that" moments—paradigm shifts in the game from 1920 through the present. More than just a book about schemes and strategies, The Genius of Desperation: The Schematic Innovations that Made the Modern NFL also tells the stories of the game's most prominent innovators, the adversities they endured, and the ways in which they learned to exceed their own expectations on the path to true greatness. Everyone from George Halas to Greasy Neale, Paul Brown to Sid Gillman, Bill Walsh to Chip Kelly is featured, as well as many more. The Genius of Desperation is a narrative arc through the history of the game as it's never been told before.

Making Life Easy Book Excerpt:

You know Dr. Christiane Northrup as the best-selling author of books such as Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause—a beloved and trusted expert on everything that can go right with the female body. Now she brings her wisdom and insight to illuminate the mind, soul, and spirit as well. In this joyfully encouraging new book—as useful for men as it is for women—Dr. Northrup explores the essential truth that has guided her ever since medical school: our bodies, minds, and souls are profoundly intertwined. Making life flow with ease, and truly feeling your best, is about far more than physical health; it’s also about having a healthy emotional life and a robust spiritual life. When you view your physical well-being in isolation, life can become a constant battle to make your body “behave.” When you acknowledge the deep connection between your beliefs and your biology and start to tune in to the Divine part of yourself, it’s a whole new ballgame—and the first step in truly making your life easy. Take your well-being into your own hands as you learn to: • Untie the knots of blame and guilt that harm your health • Use sexual energy consciously to increase vitality • Balance your microbiome through healthy eating • Cultivate a healthy ego that serves you (not vice versa) • Communicate directly with the Divine • And much more Drawing on fields from epigenetics to past-life regression to standard Western medicine, Dr. Northrup distills a brilliant career’s worth of wisdom into one comprehensive user’s guide to a healthy, happy, radiant life.

Deep Fitness Book Excerpt:

Research shows that increasing your muscle strength is the single most important thing you can do for your physical and mental health. This book shows you how--in just 30 minutes a day, once or twice a week--using the science-backed MSTF method. The mixed messages we’ve received about exercise, aerobics, and mental and physical fitness are all misleading...or at least incomplete. Clinical research shows that we lose muscle mass as we age, and that preventing muscle loss through strength training--more than cardio, stretching, or flexibility--is the key to staying active, healthy, and well. Deep Fitness introduces a proven, new approach to building strength and whole-body health: Mindful Strength Training to Failure (MSTF). This science-based method reverses muscle loss and improves overall strength in just one or two 30-minute sessions a week. MSTF exercises are simple and effective, and can be done at home with resistance bands and bodyweight, or with the machines at your local gym. Using slow reps, MSTF marries mindful body awareness with proven strength-training techniques to help you become stronger at any age. With more than 30 full-color exercises, Deep Fitness explains the science behind MSTF. It shows how the program boosts longevity and healthspan; aids weight loss and fat reduction; increases overall wellness and mental health; and can improve or reverse symptoms of: • Prediabetes and diabetes • Cardiovascular disease • Metabolic syndrome • Alzheimer’s and dementia • Chronic inflammation • Osteoporosis • Other chronic illnesses Appropriate for people of all ages and activity levels, the exercises and techniques in Deep Fitness are effective, straightforward, and sustainable, helping you enjoy the vibrant, fit, whole-body health you deserve.

The Stressless Revolution Book Excerpt:

We live in a 24/7, fast-paced rat race and its not working. Many people are struggling with the stresses and pressure of modern life, and they know intuitively there must be a better way. In The StressLess Revolution, author Karina Joy Stephens, award-winning entrepreneur, author, and transformational speaker, shares her story of being burnt out, stressed out, and maxed out, before she checked out, surviving but not thriving. She narrates how chronic stress robs us of our personal power, how fatigue enervates our life force, and how struggle depletes us. Stephens showcases the strategies to live a less stressful life. In The StressLess Revolution, she discusses how to: create a stress defense shield so stress can never have the same effect again; discover how easy it is to make stress your new best friend; step into the stress-less kitchen and learn how to eat intuitively and magnify your life force; to shed weight permanently by doing less; slow down physically, ramp up energetically, and achieve more; remove the physical and energetic blocks to affluence, ease, and joy; and receive guided visualizations, meditations, energy medicine, and healing techniques designed to break through stress, struggle, and fatigue forever. The StressLess Revolution teaches that you dont have to struggle to know affluence and joy. Stephens tells how to let go of the struggle, stress, and burnout and begin to live a life of ease and abundance.

Goddesses Never Age Book Excerpt:

THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER! Though we talk about wanting to "age gracefully," the truth is that when it comes to getting older, we’re programmed to dread an inevitable decline: in our health, our looks, our sexual relationships, even the pleasure we take in living life. But as Christiane Northrup, M.D., shows us in this profoundly empowering book, we have it in us to make growing older an entirely different experience, both for our bodies and for our souls. In chapters that blend personal stories and practical exercises with the latest research on health and aging, Dr. Northrup lays out the principles of ageless living, from rejecting processed foods to releasing stuck emotions, from embracing our sensuality to connecting deeply with our Divine Source. Explaining that the state of our health is dictated far more by our beliefs than by our biology, she works to shift our perceptions about getting older and show us what we are entitled to expect from our later years—no matter what our culture tries to teach us to the contrary—including: · Vibrant good health · A fulfilling sex life · The capacity to love without losing ourselves · The ability to move our bodies with ease and pleasure · Clarity and authenticity in all our relationships—especially the one we have with ourselves "Taking all the right supplements and pills, or getting the right procedure done, isn’t the prescription for anti-aging," Dr. Northrup explains. "Agelessness is all about vitality, the creative force that gives birth to new life." Goddesses Never Age is filled with tools and inspiration for bringing vitality and vibrancy into your own ageless years—and it all comes together in Dr. Northrup’s 14-day Ageless Goddess Program, your personal prescription for creating a healthful, soulful, joyful new way of being at any stage of life.
