Creating Peace by Being Peace Book Description :
Representing a synthesis of the author’s decades of multidisciplinary work in meditation, psychiatry, psychotherapy, and spirituality, Creating Peace by Being Peace guides readers in creating peace on seven levels of engagement, from the body to the ecology to God.

He begins by explaining the Essenes and the lessons they can teach us as creators of peace. Individual chapters cover a wide range of possibility, from the personal (“Peace with the Mind”) to the political (“Peace with the Community”). The final chapter, "Integrating Peace on Every Level," pre...

Creating Peace in Sri Lanka Book Description :
Sri Lanka, one of the most promising states in Asia following independence in 1948, has been torn apart for the past fifteen years by a vicious civil war. The majority Sinhala and minority Tamils have killed each other with increasing ferocity. The Tamils, who are primarily Hindu, fear losing their identity and being overwhelmed by the majority, who are Buddhist. The Sinhala, in turn, fear that the Tamils, with the backing of their ethnic kin in the Indian province of Tamil Nadu, will destabilize and take over control of the Sri Lankan government. Colonial-era rivalries and deep-rooted distrust fuel the tensions. What will bring about an end to this destructive conflict, and how will the island nation heal its physical and psychic wounds following a ...

Still in the City Book Description :
Still, in the City is a collection of stories about the practice of urban Buddhism—when a New York City subway becomes a mobile temple, when Los Angeles traffic becomes a vehicle for awakening, when a Fifth Avenue sidewalk offers a spiritual path through craving, generosity, and sorrow. The instructions offered here for exploring mindfulness in and around our cities are written to be accessible, whether you’ve practiced a lot or a little. Perhaps you’ve returned home from a retreat and want to hold the attention and intention gained from pausing and experiencing the silence. Or perhaps you practice mindfulness and don’t call it Buddhism, or you are just curious about what mindfulness is all about. Still, in the City will speak to you. Practic...

The Seven Angels of Peace Book Description :
The 7 Angels of Peace is a living, breathing teaching from the heart. This book lifts the veil on the world of the Essenes and their angels, and the gifts of peace they have to offer us. A complete peace which embraces the seven aspects of our lives; our body and mind, relationships, work, beliefs, the Earth and our Divinity. Sarah Anne Barker brings to life this ancient teaching from the fresh perspective of the angels. As a spiritual teaching which is relevant for the modern world. This teaching is two thousand years old, that of the ancient Essenes and their angels. There have often been teachers of peace, but few have spoken of angels of peace, as the Essenes did. It offers a new vista to the eyes and hearts of those who read it. One of peace, jo...

The Different Drum Book Description :
'The overall purpose of human communication is - or should be - reconciliation. It should ultimately serve to lower or remove the walls of misunderstanding which unduly separate us human beings, one from another...' Although we have developed the technology to make communication more efficent and to bring people closer together, we have failed to use it to build a true global community. Dr M. Scott Peck believes that if we are to prevent civilization destroying itself, we must urgently rebuild on all levels, local, national and international and that is the first step to spiritual survival. In this radical and challenging book, he describes how the communities work, how group action can be developed on the principles of tolerance and love, and how we...

All Authority Has Been Given To Me Book Description :
For much of Christian history, greater focus has been paid to Jesus' death than to his three years of ministry, and his crucifixion has often been understood primarily as a means to salvation in heaven. But retired pastor Tim Lehman contends that we've drastically missed the point by not looking closely at and learning from Jesus' words and actions before his death. As a result, we lose out on the joy and freedom of living fully as his disciples and experiencing salvation already in this life on earth. In this broad study of Matthew's Gospel, Lehman challenges readers to view Jesus' death in light of his life. He urges us not just to believe in Jesus, but to believe Jesus--to take seriously all that he taught and how he lived. As Lehman leads readers...
