Altered Traits: Science Reveals How Meditation Changes Your Mind, Brain, and Body

Altered Traits: Science Reveals How Meditation Changes Your Mind, Brain, and Body Lowest new price: $14.85
Lowest used price: $17.49
List price: $27.00
Author: Daniel Goleman

Two New York Times–bestselling authors unveil new research showing what meditation can really do for the brain.
 
In the last twenty years, meditation and mindfulness have gone from being kind of cool to becoming an omnipresent Band-Aid for fixing everything from your weight to your relationship to your achievement level. Unveiling here the kind of cutting-edge research that has made them giants in their fields, Daniel Goleman and Richard Davidson show us the truth about what meditation can really do for us, as well as exactly how to get the most out of it.
           
Sweeping away common misconceptions and neuromythology to open readers’ eyes to the ways data has been distorted to sell mind-training methods, the authors demonstrate that beyond the pleasant states mental exercises can produce, the real payoffs are the lasting personality traits that can result. But short daily doses will not get us to the highest level of lasting positive change—even if we continue for years—without specific additions. More than sheer hours, we need smart practice, including crucial ingredients such as targeted feedback from a master teacher and a more spacious, less attached view of the self, all of which are missing in widespread versions of mind training. The authors also reveal the latest data from Davidson’s own lab that point to a new methodology for developing a broader array of mind-training methods with larger implications for how we can derive the greatest benefits from the practice.
           
Exciting, compelling, and grounded in new research, this is one of those rare books that has the power to change us at the deepest level.

Trauma and Recovery: The Aftermath of Violence--From Domestic Abuse to Political Terror Lowest new price: $11.31

List price: $17.99
Author: Judith L. Herman
Brand: Herman Judith L

A revised and updated edition of the groundbreaking work that changed the way we think about and treat traumatic events and trauma victims.

"A stunning achievement ... a classic for our generation." --Bessel van der Kolk, M.D., author of The Body Keeps the Score

When Trauma and Recovery was first published in 1992, it was hailed as a groundbreaking work. In the intervening years, it has become the basic text for understanding trauma survivors. By placing individual experience in a broader political frame, Judith Herman argues that psychological trauma can be understood only in a social context. Drawing on her own research on incest, as well as on a vast literature on combat veterans and victims of political terror, she shows surprising parallels between private horrors like child abuse and public horrors like war. A new epilogue reviews what has changed--and what has not changed--over two decades. Trauma and Recovery is essential reading for anyone who seeks to understand how we heal and are healed.

Everything You Wanted to Know But Were Never Told

Everything You Wanted to Know But Were Never Told Lowest new price: $15.42
Lowest used price: $22.34
List price: $19.99
Author: David Icke

"I want to make it clear before we start what the title represents. Everything You Need To Know, But Have Never Been Told does not refer to all that people need to know in terms of information and knowledge. How could you put that between two covers? Religious books claim to do this but they are works of self-delusion and perceptual imprisonment. Everything You Need To Know in this case refers to the information necessary to open entirely new ways of thinking and perceiving reality, both in the seen and unseen, from which everything else will come. This book is a start not a finish. It is written in layers with information placed upon information that together reveals the picture by connecting the parts. The parts are fascinating, but the picture is devastating. Prepare for a perception reboot]] "
