Summary of Jedidiah Jenkins s To Shake the Sleeping Self Book Excerpt:

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 I told my friends and coworkers about my plan to cycle to Patagonia in 2011. Some were supportive, while others laughed. My parents were not happy about it. They were famous for their walk in the 1970s, and now I was following in their footsteps. #2 I knew I would be leaving as soon as I turned thirty, so I started preparing for the big adventure. I stopped feeling trapped and took on more responsibility. I didn’t do anything to prepare, though, because I was confident that I could ride a bike and learn as I went. #3 I had to leave my job in 2013, and I was thirty years old. I had looked down and it was time to leave. I had learned a valuable lesson: You are not an idiot. It’s okay if you don’t know everything. Don’t pretend. Ask all the questions you want. #4 I bought a bike that could get me to Chile. It was heavy but sturdy. I didn’t want a fancy carbon bike that would break if I was hit by a car or a bus. I bought panniers, which are saddlebags that you hang from the side of your bike, and a reflector pad to keep me warm at night.

Like Streams to the Ocean Book Excerpt:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “As inviting, wide-ranging, and philosophical as an all-night conversation with a best friend, and as revealing and thought-provoking as the diary of a curious adventurer.”—Sasha Sagan, author of For Small Creatures Such as We You can travel the world looking for yourself, but if you don't know what you're looking for, how can you find it? Like Streams To The Ocean is about examining the things that make us who we are and getting to know ourselves, our stories, and the decisions that shape our one and only life. Writing with the passion and clarity that made his debut, To Shake the Sleeping Self, a national bestseller, Jedidiah Jenkins brings together new and old writings to explore the eight subjects that give life meaning: ego, family, home, friendship, love, work, death, the soul. Who am I? What am I made of? How much of how I act boils down to avoiding the things that make me feel small? As he examines the experiences that shape our conscious and subconscious answers to these questions, Jenkins leads readers in a wide-ranging conversation about finding fulfillment in the people and places around us and discovering the courage to show our deepest selves to the world.

A story of love, loss, redemption, persistence, tragedy, triumph, and mastery, The Monk of Park Avenue is peopled with the likes of Jacqueline Onassis, Milos Forman, Zero Mostel, Danny Kaye, George Burns, John Denver, Erich Fromm, Sofia Loren, Richard Holbrooke, Paul McCartney, Warren Beatty, and now-infamous opioid purveyors, the Sackler Family.The Monk of Park Avenue is no mere celebrity tell-all, but a novelist and martial master's path to spiritual attainment rendered in high literary style and with propulsive drive.

The Wisdom of Your Body Book Excerpt:

Many of us have a complicated relationship with our body. Maybe you've been made to feel ashamed of your body or like it isn't good enough. Maybe your body is riddled with stress, pain, or the effects of trauma. Maybe you think of your body as an accessory to what you believe you really are--your mind. Maybe your experiences with racism, sexism, ableism, heterosexism, ageism, or sizeism have made you believe your body isn't the right kind of body. Whatever the reason, many of us don't feel at home in our bodies. But being disconnected from ourselves as bodies means being disconnected from truly living and from the interconnection that weaves us all together. Psychologist and award-winning researcher Hillary McBride explores the broken and unhealthy ideas we have inherited about our body. Embodiment is the way we are in the world, and our embodiment is heavily influenced by who we have been allowed to be. McBride shows that many of us feel disembodied due to colonization, racism, sexism, and patriarchy--destructive systems that rank certain bodies as less valuable, beautiful, or human than others. Embracing our embodiment can liberate us from these systems. As we come to understand the world around us and the stories we've been told, we see that our perspective of reality often limits how we see and experience ourselves, each other, and what we believe is Sacred. Instead of the body being a problem to overcome, our bodies can be the very place where we feel most alive, the seat of our spirituality and our wisdom. The Wisdom of Your Body offers a compassionate, healthy, and holistic perspective on embodied living. Weaving together illuminating research, stories from her work as a therapist, and deeply personal narratives of healing from a life-threatening eating disorder, a near-fatal car accident, and chronic pain, McBride invites us to reclaim the wisdom of the body and to experience the wholeness that has been there all along. End-of-chapter questions and practices are included.
