Acclaimed author Jen Holling presents the stunning final novel in her sensual trilogy, set against the windswept hills of Scotland, about a trio of sisters with witchcraft -- and passion -- in their blood. Rose, the youngest of the MacDonell sisters, is more concerned with her father's mysterious illness than with her impending marriage to her childhood sweetheart. A gifted but frustrated healer, she decides to beg help from William MacKay -- a reclusive laird who is renowned not only for his ferocity, but also for his healing powers. Denied entry to his fortress in the cold, harsh mountains of the far northwestern highlands, Rose uses cunning to force her way in, and William is duly intrigued with this bold slip of a girl. But securing his help may not be enough to save Rose's father. For there is something darker at work in the glen, something more powerful than William's and Rose's magic combined, and only the soul-deep passion that shadows their mutual desire can help their love prevail.

Our "shadow" is the collection of negative or undesirable traits we keep hidden—the things we don't like about ourselves or are afraid to admit: egotist, non-"PC" proclivities, forbidden sexual desires. But it also includes our positive, untapped potential—qualities we may admire in others but disavow in ourselves. Befriending the shadow makes fear an ally and enables us to live more authentically. It also automatically improves our interpersonal relationships, because we are freed from the need to project our own negativity onto others, and we become more acutely aware when theirs is projected onto us. David Richo looks for where the shadow manifests in personal life, family interaction, religion, relationship, and the world around is. He shows how to use the gentle practice of mindfulness to work with our shadow side, and he provides numerous exercises for going deeper. He is remarkably skillful at making the shadow concept not only easy to understand, but supremely practical for enhancing the quality of our lives.

From Mormon to Mystic: Journey from Religious Disillusionment to Soulful Liberation chronicles the journey of a sixth-generation Mormon woman. She travels a path that takes her from a tightly knit and theologically strict religious community to the open expanses of a mystical understanding of reality. Erin Jensen weaves together the account of her transformation and the strands of insight that come from James Fowler?s Stages of Faith. By rooting her narrative in the vivid details of the steps she takes along the way, the author tells how she weathers her life?s challenges, including a federal court ?witch? trial, and emerges from the depths of several ?dark nights of the soul.? While From Mormon to Mystic immerses itself in the details of one life, it simultaneously offers guidance for anyone seeking to overcome the strictures of rigid systems of belief and behavior. In its pages, the reader will learn how to make his or her way toward freedom and wholeness by understanding how faith develops, learning to work with shadow qualities, practicing non-attachment, taking personal responsibility, trusting one?s ability to choose, appreciating the power of total forgiveness, connecting to inner sources of wisdom, and embracing a state of consciousness filled with hope, love, and peace. From Mormon to Mystic: Journey from Religious Disillusionment to Soulful Liberation offers both a narrative of one woman?s path to spiritual freedom and a guide for others who seek their own way from the confines of their current circumstances to the liberation they desire to envision for the own futures.

"In Tarot Shadow Work, Christine Jette bravely takes the practice of tarot readings to new depths and places many people fear to go. She shows us how we can use the cards to trigger awareness in ourselves of troubling aspects of our lives and histories, and then go beyond discovery to use the cards as tools for healing. This is part of the work that needs to be done with tarot in this new century." —Rachel Pollack, author of 78 Degrees of Wisdom and the forthcoming Shining Tribe Tarot Deep within our psyches, the unconscious holds our forbidden feelings, secret wishes, and creative urges. Over time, these "dark forces" take on a life of their own and form the shadow—a powerful force of unresolved inner conflicts and unexpressed emotions that defies our efforts to control it. The shadow takes its shape from a menagerie of archetypes, each recognizable throughout time and around the world—troubling characters who thrive within our persona. The shadow is sabateur, martyr, victim, addict, sadist, masochist, or tyrant; all the dark figures that prey on the lighter qualities of the human personality. The shadow also represents those latent talents and positive traits that were banished from us at some time along our life path: artistic, musical, athletic, or creative talents. An undeveloped ability, a dream that has gone unexpressed, a fantasy of what might have been—these too make up the personal shadow, the lost parts of ourselves. Tarot Shadow Work shows you how to free yourself from the shackles of the shadow's power. Through tarot work, journaling, meditation, creative visualization, and dream work, you will bring the shadow into the light. This book is ideal for those who are in recovery from a serious addiction or illness, as well as any person seeking a deeper understanding of his or her true self. By exploring the dark and uncharted territory of the unconscious mind, you will work towards understanding and integrating the shadow. No prior knowledge of the tarot is required. You will learn to use the cards as a tool to help you break free from negative patterns and self-destructive behavior. Once we realize that we are made of both light and darkness, life will start to make sense. When we accept our dual natures, we stop sabotaging our own efforts and learn to be compassionate with others and with ourselves.

Where there's light, there are shadows. Turning your back on your shadow doesn't make it disappear. It's still there and always will be because it's part of you. It's far better to face it and embrace it. In doing so, you'll find the happiness, power, and success you've been searching for. This is my second book on shadow work and within these pages we'll dig in deeper, cover more ground, and do more work that leads to ultimate healing and freedom. I'll show you how to view your shadow traits differently, integrate them, and use them as a powerful force that can help you in life rather than holding you back. It's not about fixing what's broken, but shedding light on those dark parts and understanding every aspect of who you truly are. Eventually, by accepting those less-than-perfect aspects of your personality, you'll be living life as your authentic self. And let me tell you, it feels amazing! I'll be honest, shadow work is not easy, nor is it an overnight fix. Many people give up far too soon. After all, it can be overwhelming when faced with all of your demons and dirty laundry, so to speak. That's why I wrote these books. I don't want you to go down this road alone. I've been doing my own shadow work for a long time now, and have helped many clients through their journey as well. Let me walk with you as you face and embrace your shadows.

"This innovative textbook for learning classical Chinese poetry moves beyond the traditional anthology of poems translated into English and instead brings readers—including those with no knowledge of Chinese—as close as possible to the texture of the poems in their original language. The first two chapters introduce the features of classical Chinese that are important for poetry and then survey the formal and rhetorical conventions of classical poetry. The core chapters present the major poets and poems of the Chinese poetic tradition from earliest times to the lyrics of the Song Dynasty (960–1279).Each chapter begins with an overview of the historical context for the poetry of a particular period and provides a brief biography for each poet. Each of the poems appears in the original Chinese with a word-by-word translation, followed by Michael A. Fuller’s unadorned translation, and a more polished version by modern translators. A question-based study guide highlights the important issues in reading and understanding each particular text.Designed for classroom use and for self-study, the textbook’s goal is to help the reader appreciate both the distinctive voices of the major writers in the Chinese poetic tradition and the grand contours of the development of that tradition."

The purpose of awakening your Sacred Masculine, is to ignite and guide you to live more consciously from your open, aligned and empowered Heartspace. This in part, is done by restoring respect, integrity and honor in men and strength, safety and trust within women. This is largely accomplished by consciously connecting into your Heart Center and all the Spiritual energies accessible here, specifically those of love + joy + compassion + gratitude + forgiveness and trust. Here you tap directly into your Divine nature. Guaranteed. These energies, found in an empowered Heartspace are what I refer to as the Sacred. Living from your empowered Heartspace actualizes your Souls true purpose which is to embody and express your Sacreds attributes in your everyday life. As you act from this awareness and become consciously present in your Heartspace, you come to awaken your Sacred. Its this simple. However, only by being totally present in this very moment Here & Now fully grounded in your body, can you embody your Sacred. Viscerally speaking that is, with each breath you breathe. For your Sacred to become real for you, it has to become alive in you. Consciously breathing your Sacred and all its qualities into your body, will a Divine fusion ignite and blaze in your life. Please understand, awakening your Sacred Masculine is IN NO WAY gender specific. Its not just about men. This revolutionary+evolutionary breakthrough of consciousness needs to take place in all of us, women as well. The masculine Lifeforce lives in men and women alike and as such, has to evolve in anyone intent on awakening their Sacred. Paradoxically, this applies to men engaging and empowering our contradictory + complimentary natures. Otherwise known as our feminine consciousness. For men, to awaken and embody our Sacred Masculine now, well have to embrace this fundamental part of ourselves.
