How To Be Compassionate

Dalai Lama, $20.00

Who better to speak of compassion than the man who embodies it? How to Be Compassionate is a compilation of the Dalai Lama's teachings on the subject, beginning with the problem of anger and hatred. He discusses how to lessen anger's hold, points out the basic mistakes of attitude that lead to inner turmoil, and offers practical exercises to overcome these problems. Finally, he demonstrates how to respond to difficult situations and urges us to practice and cultivate compassion for the sake of ourselves and the world. Enlivened by personal anecdotes and his own experiences, His Holiness shows that the path to global harmony begins in individual hearts.

 

Hidden Reality

Brian Greene, $29.95

The Hidden Reality is at once a far-reaching survey of cutting-edge physics and a remarkable journey to the very edge of reality—asking whether ours is the only universe, or part of a vast ocean of “multiverses.” In his most expansive book to date, Brian Greene, author of The Elegant Universe and The Fabric of the Cosmos, takes us on an exploration of these parallel worlds and reveals how much of reality’s true nature may be hidden within them. Using metaphor, analogy, and episodes from history, this accessible account of some of the strangest insights of modern physics requires no previous expertise in either physics or mathematics.

 

Only Pack What You Can Carry

Janice Booth, $24.00

The extraordinary personal development book Only Pack What You Can Carry catches your attention from its very first sentence, “All I ever wanted was a horse.” Her daring leap into eye-opening years of solo travel allowed author Janet Holly Booth to discover who she is at her core, what matters most in life, and her own true capabilites. Her travel becomes a spiritual journey, a chance to be intentional, to start and end each day in silence and to work on practicing being “present in the moment every moment, all the time.” And her adventures along the way will keep you eagerly turning pages.
