An essential exploration of why and how women’s sexuality works—based on groundbreaking research and brain science—that will radically transform your sex life into one filled with confidence and joy. Researchers have spent the last decade trying to develop a “pink pill” for women to function like Viagra does for men. So where is it? Well, for reasons this book makes crystal clear, that pill will never be the answer—but as a result of the research that’s gone into it, scientists in the last few years have learned more about how women’s sexuality works than we ever thought possible, and Come as You Are explains it all. The first lesson in this essential, transformative book by Dr. Emily Nagoski is that every woman has her own unique sexuality, like a fingerprint, and that women vary more than men in our anatomy, our sexual response mechanisms, and the way our bodies respond to the sexual world. So we never need to judge ourselves based on others’ experiences. Because women vary, and that’s normal. Second lesson: sex happens in a context. And all the complications of everyday life influence the context surrounding a woman’s arousal, desire, and orgasm. Cutting-edge research across multiple disciplines tells us that the most important factor for women in creating and sustaining a fulfilling sex life, is not what you do in bed or how you do it, but how you feel about it. Which means that stress, mood, trust, and body image are not peripheral factors in a woman’s sexual wellbeing; they are central to it. Once you understand these factors, and how to influence them, you can create for yourself better sex and more profound pleasure than you ever thought possible. And Emily Nagoski can prove it.

Come As You Are

I couldn’t have scripted a more perfect night. For one fantastic evening, at a masquerade party in the heart of Manhattan, I’m not the millionaire everyone wants a piece of. Fine—multimillionaire. But who’s counting all those commas? Not me, and not the most intriguing woman I've ever met, who happens to like dancing, witty banter, and hot, passionate up-against-the-wall sex as much as I do. There's no need for names or business cards. And that’s why I’m eager to get to know her more, since my mystery woman seems to like me for me, rather than for my huge…bank account. Everything’s coming up aces. Until the next day when things get a little complicated. (Newsflash — a lot complicated.) *** He's charming, brilliant, an incredible lover, and right now I want to stab fate in the eyeballs. I've had one goal I've been working toward, and lo and behold, my mystery man is the very person who stands between me and my dream job. A job I desperately need since my hard-knock life has nothing in common with his star-kissed one. But it’s time to put that fairytale night behind me, and focus on learning what makes him tick. Too bad it turns out his quirks are my quirks, and his love affair with New York matches mine. And as we spend our days together, I discover something else that feels like a cruel twist of fate — I’m falling for this naughty prince charming, and that’s not an ending I can write to our story.

A revised and updated edition of Emily Nagoski’s game-changing New York Times bestseller Come As You Are, featuring new information and research on mindfulness, desire, and pleasure that will radically transform your sex life. For much of the 20th and 21st centuries, women’s sexuality was an uncharted territory in science, studied far less frequently—and far less seriously—than its male counterpart. That is, until Emily Nagoski’s Come As You Are, which used groundbreaking science and research to prove that the most important factor in creating and sustaining a sex life filled with confidence and joy is not what the parts are or how they’re organized but how you feel about them. In the years since the book’s initial publication, countless women have learned through Nagoski’s accessible and informative guide that things like stress, mood, trust, and body image are not peripheral factors in a woman’s sexual wellbeing; they are central to it—and that even if you don’t always feel like it, you are already sexually whole by just being yourself. This revised and updated edition continues that mission with new information and advanced research, demystifying and decoding the science of sex so that everyone can create a better sex life and discover more pleasure than you ever thought possible.

SUMMARY Come As You Are The Surprising New Science That Will Transform Your Sex Life By Emily Nagoski

Nirvana came out of nowhere in 1991 to sell nearly five million copies of their landmark album Nevermind, whose thunderous sound and indelible melodies embodied all the confusion, frustration, and passion of the emerging Generation X. Come As You Are is the close-up, intimate story of Nirvana -- the only book with exclusive in-depth interviews with bandmembers Kurt Cobain, Krist Noveselic, and Dave Grohl, as well as friends, relatives, former bandmembers, and associates -- now updated to include a new final chapter detailing the last year of Kurt Cobain's life, before his tragic suicide in April 1994.

Jesus said, 'You must love the Lord your God with all your soul, mind and strength; and love your neighbour as yourself.' If you had to choose a single verse in the Bible that is a formula for successful living, this would be the one to live by, says Joyce Meyer. Many Christians get mixed up about love. They know they should love God, they know they should love others - but they don't understand what it means to love themselves. Joyce believes that this misconception is one of the greatest pitfalls in the Christian journey. Loving oneself in a balanced, healthy manner is essential in order to have healthy relationships with God and others. Through these inspiring and thoughtful devotions, readers will learn: How to fall in love with God because of who He is rather than what he can give us. Why we cannot truly love ourselves until we truly love God. Why we must love ourselves in order to love others - because it's impossible to give away something you don't possess. Practical ways to put these principles into action and enjoy richer relationships. This powerful volume combines the trademark practical teaching, sound psychology and useful insights that Joyce Meyer is known for and will form a firm basis for devotions for years to come.

The Art of Connecting With Nature emerged from Mark’s desire to have others experience the “living presence” of the natural world. Within these pages you’ll discover 22 co-authors who have established a relationship with nature that reclaims what indigenous people worldwide express as kinship, centeredness, and the ability to make decisions through the eyes of future generations. The book is divided into four experiential themes: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. We invite you to open to whatever chapter calls to you, since each stands on its own. At the end of each section we’ve provided tools, rituals, and practices to help you develop, or enhance, your own relationship with nature. These are activities that have helped us; but in the end, we each have our own journey that cannot be defined by another’s.

Renowned channeler Paul Selig shares the wisdom of The Guides "The gift of the times you sit in, humanity at a crossroads, is the gift of the unknown, the unseen, the unprepared for. “How can I prepare for a future, when all I have trusted and believed in seems to be falling away?”...You say yes to the uncertain moment. You agree that the path before you will be lit as you walk it, and not a moment before. " In Alchemy: A Channeled Text, The Guides offer us a way to engage the transformational process of moving beyond a limited interpretation of the self and into a place of true manifestation. As humanity stands at a crossroads, the voices of The Guides offer insight and a path forward. Paul Selig, the author of Beyond the Known: Realization, is one of the foremost spiritual channels in the world. Alchemy is composed of the pure, unedited words of The Guides as they have been channeled through Paul. Their message is poignant and beautifully written, humming with wisdom and insight for all who are ready and willing to receive their words.

What makes a song sound foreign? What makes it sound “American,” or Brazilian? Caetano Veloso's 2004 American songbook album, A Foreign Sound, is a meditation on these questions-but in truth, they were questions he'd been asking throughout his career. Properly heard, the album throws a wrench into received ideas regarding the global hegemony of US popular music, and also what constitutes the Brazilian sound. This book takes listeners back through some of Veloso's earlier considerations of American popular music, and forward to his more recent experiments, in order to explore his take on the relationship between US and Brazilian musical idioms. 33 1/3 Global, a series related to but independent from 33 1/3, takes the format of the original series of short, music-basedbooks and brings the focus to music throughout the world. With initial volumes focusing on Japanese and Brazilian music, the series will also include volumes on the popular music of Australia/Oceania, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and more.

Independently spiritual women can often feel alone in their "religions of one," without the structure to support spiritual growth, or the foundation that faith needs to flourish. Without the support of organized religion, it can be hard to make time, create space, cultivate tradition, or build community so faith can deepen. The Sovereign Soul: A Spiritual-But-Not-Religious Woman's Guide to Living a Soul-Centered Life speaks to those challenges and walks the independently spiritual woman through the process of re-discovering her unique relationship with her Sovereign Soul, and then building her life around that relationship. A step-by-step system of practical exercises and activities to: * Serve your Sovereign Soul's mission with great satisfaction and joy * Create a successful and reliable spiritual practice you can count on * Identify your real needs and meet them in soulful ways * Transform your physical space with Soul-welcoming changes * Release the barriers to a Soul-centered life peacefully, with ease * Experience time in a way that is satisfying and meaningful * Build your spiritual tribe for community, support and inspiration Part guidebook, part love story, The Sovereign Soul: A Spiritual-But-Not-Religious Woman's Guide to Living a Soul-Centered Life is for all smart, soulful women who long to know themselves deeply but have not yet figured out how to shape a life that supports that. If you have been unable yet to collect energy around your spiritual journey, to bring that journey to the forefront of your life - if you think you have to choose between an organized religion and a hit-or-miss, back-burner kind of faith, then this book was written for you. Isn't it time to put your relationship with your Sovereign Soul first for a change, and call on the most powerful, present, loving part of you for a rich and meaningful life?

As believers, we know we are to study the Bible, memorize it, and obey it. But does the Bible say what we think it says? There are many phrases that sound like they come from the Bible, but are they right? Are they scriptural? Are they part of God's plan for His church? Or are they culturally induced beliefs and practices that have been developed out of traditions of men and are contrary to God's expressed directions? The writer invites you to examine a little closer your beliefs as we examine some familiar statements of questions to determine if they are church myths or biblical truths. The purpose of this book is to examine some beliefs that are widespread throughout the institutional church as biblical truths; statements such as "Come as you are;" "Once saved, always saved;" and "Christians cannot live under a curse," and many others.

This relationship, the author argues, is reciprocal: for the first time, entertainment is created with adolescent consumers in mind who in turn develop a new mode of subjectivity that is informed by the popular culture they consume.

Less is more. And more is better. This is the new equation for church development, a new equation with eternal results.Rejecting the “bigger is better” model of the complex, corporate megachurch, church innovator Dave Browning embraced deliberate simplicity. The result was Christ the King Community Church, International (CTK), an expanding multisite community church that Outreach magazine named among America’s Fastest Growing Churches and America’s Most Innovative Churches. Members of the CTK network in a number of cities, countries, and continents are empowered for maximum impact by Browning’s “less is more” approach. In Deliberate Simplicity, Browning discusses the six elements of this streamlined model:• Minimality: Keep it simple• Intentionality: Keep it missional• Reality: Keep it real• Multility: Keep it cellular• Velocity: Keep it moving• Scalability: Keep it expandingAs part of the Leadership Network Innovation Series, Deliberate Simplicity is a guide for church leaders seeking new strategies for more effective ministry.
