The Four Purposes of Life

Dan Millman, $17.00

The Four Purposes of Life is for anyone seeking deeper insight into themselves and their lives, but especially for those at a crossroads, facing a challenge or change, when past approaches no longer work. Dan Millman, author of The Life You Were Born to Live and The Way of the Peaceful Warrior, distills decades of exploration and experience into a concise map of what we’re here to accomplish on our life’s journey. These four purposes — learning life’s lessons, finding your career and calling, discovering your life path, and attending to this arising moment — will bring your life into sharper focus by revealing:

  • the value of everyday challenges in relationships, health, work, and money
  • how to make wiser decisions in career and relationships
  • our twelve required courses in the school of life
  • a mysterious system that clarifies your hidden calling
  • keys to mastering the most important purpose of all
     

 

I'm Over All That

Shirley MacLaine, $22.00

In I’m Over All That, a wise, witty, and fearless collection of small observations and big-picture questions, Shirley MacLaine shares with readers all those things that she is over dealing with in life, in love, at home, and in the larger world . . . as well as the things she will never get over, no matter how long she lives. An unabashed truth seeker and free spirit, Shirley looks squarely at a world that can irritate, confuse, and provoke her, but also delight with its beauty, humor, and future promise. Along the way, she recalls stories of some of the true greats she has known—Alfred Hitchcock, Elizabeth Taylor, Frank Sinatra, and the two Jacks (Lemmon and Nicholson).

 

Cosmic Healing

Barbara Brodsky, $18.95

In her moving new book Cosmic Healing, nationally recognized dharma teacher Barbara Brodsky shares her remarkable experience of overcoming the limitations of deafness, destroyed balance, and partial blindness with the aid of Aaron, a channeled spirit, and with the internationally recognized healer John of God. Asking the questions What is healing? Who and what heals? Why do some people heal while others do not? she discusses karma and free will, our habit of identifying with a limited sense of self, and our potential for greater healing. Based on her three decades of meticulously kept journals, she weaves together  Buddhist teachings, channeled material from Aaron, exercises for the reader, and an account of her experiences with John of God at his teaching center in Brazil.
