An Integrative Approach to Counseling: Bridging Chinese Thought, Evolutionary Theory, and Stress Management offers a global and integrative approach to counseling that incorporates multiple concepts and techniques from both eastern and western perspectives. The book identifies commonalities rather than the differences between them. The book also compares and contrasts the underlying cultural assumptions of western counseling with those of the Chinese perspectives of Confucianism, Daoism, and Buddhism, relative to integrating and applying a more global approach to helping individuals functionally adapt to challenges in their environments. The book will be used by faculty and students in those advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in psychology, counseling, or social work that cover such areas as introduction to counseling, counseling skills and techniques, counseling theories, multi-cultural awareness and counseling, and stress management.

Giovanna is a free-lance writer and a published author of her new book, 'Etchings of the Heart' and 'dreams and visions of love'. This book is a result of six years of purging her soul through writing that gave way to a wondrous spiritual awakening, after a series of events beginning with the death of her father and a downward spiraling of her personal life that enabled her to see that everything in life happens for a reason. "When you reach rock bottom, there is nowhere to go but up." says Giovanna Her book delves into the mysteries of life including deja vu and psychic visions and dreams. The intertwining of modern poetry with mythical characters and legends makes it ethereal and enthralling! Her fantastic view of love is reminiscent of the great love poets of old. "We need a revival of great love poetry again" says Giovanna. "I guess I am a hopeless romantic with my moon being in Venus" I believe that our sun and moon signs play a significant role in our lives. This book is a unique book of poetry, as it is a quintessential array of poetry from the heart; thus came the title 'Etchings of the heart" Giovanna said "my friends in my poetry group on writer's cafe and Mary's Bridge, all agreed that my poems came straight from my heart and I have to agree. There are all kinds of love that I write about. There is love of family, friends, romantic love, pets, nature, and God. In all love there is beauty to be found. I also write about the paradox of love which consists of Love vs. hate or Agony and ecstasy: both sides of a fiery sword. In her poem 'Never was a day, ' Giovanna writes: "for never was a day, when there was sunshine, without rain, and for love to exist without pain."

The ability to quickly make good decisions is the hallmark for transformational presence. The ability to make decisions that work is an essential characteristic that the world has been, and is still yelling for. The world is crying, groaning, yelling for most of us to revisit our decision-making processes to incorporate transformational presence and to incorporate even the basics of genuine transformation within ourselves and around us. This book is a transformational guide to making such decisions that work on the bigger picture. The book introduces models and concepts to effective and transformational decision-making skills at a time when most people have put off making decisions by endlessly searching for more information or entirely outsourcing other people to offer their recommendations. There is an increasing peril of dependence in decision-making among most individuals. A fundamental question cannot be answered by someone else. Individuals, families, organizations and societies have the wisdom and capacity to champion transformation by refining their decision-making capacities. To refine that capacity, it is essential to create light within self by igniting your decision making capacity through enhancing your perception and intelligence.

''Based on the Historical personages and facts the novel arrests the interest and attention of the reader from first to last. There is an incessant flow in the moving narration of events. Purushotam Pomal has done a yeoman's service by pulling out an immortal true story of unrequited love from the dust-bin of history. Transliteration in English is an appreciable attempt at widening the scope of this historical novel for the English reading world.' RAJAN VISHAL, I.A.S. Dist. Collector & D.M. Jalore (Raj) " Searching for light in the dark pages of history. The storyline of the novel grips the reader and one is forced to turn the pages till he reaches the end. I can vouch for this as I had the same experience." Rajendra Rajan 'Suchitaayan', Begusarai, Bihar "In a piece of historical work, if the author focuses solely on describing the historical events, the narrative becomes very tedious. Pomalji has done an excellent job of balancing the narative with ingenuity and turned out an extremely enjoyable novel. Congratulations." Dr. Suraj Paaliwal. Wardha "The list of great works of literature which have given a new direction to the development of genere of Historical Novels in Hindi would be incomplete without "Shahzaadi Firoza", authored by Shri Pomal. It is a unique creation based on the tragic love story of a Muslim Princess and a Rajput Prince. The author has successfully woven the delicate fabric of the story which reaches out to the readers across the pages of history. The author has found an exquisite balance between the narration and the narrative. The novel is a beautiful example of confluence of history, legend and emotional quotient of a love story."

The Zahir, Paulo Coelho's new novel available in paperback for the first time, incorporates exclusive new content including an extra section containing interviews with Paulo and plenty of information for those for whom the book just wasn't enough. It begins with a glimpse or a passing thought. It ends in obsession. One day a renowned author discovers that his wife, a war correspondent, has disappeared leaving no trace. Though time brings more success and new love, he remains mystified - and increasingly fascinated - by her absence. Was she kidnapped, blackmailed, or simply bored with their marriage ? The unrest she causes is as strong as the attraction she exerts. His search for her - and for the truth of his own life - takes him from France to Spain, Croatia and, eventually, the bleakly beautiful landscape of Central Asia. More than that, it takes him from the safety of his world to a totally unknown path, searching for a new understanding of the nature of love and the power of destiny. With The Zahir, Paulo Coelho demonstrates his powerful and captivating storytelling.

The new book of essays by poet and publicist Elia Pekica Pagon titled The Wisdom of Aramis talks about real-life treasures as opposed to false ones. It emphasizes all that really matters in life through simple truths from our everyday lives. The Wisdom of Aramis provides us with profound messages drawn from the lessons we can learn from our best friends and most devoted companions, our furry angels. It is a book dedicated to the author’s beloved pug, Aramis Giving of Good, who will always stay in her heart and who will fill the hearts of the readers with such a great sentiment of love, peace, tolerance, and compassion. The book talks about the joy of unconditional love, about deep compassion and inner peace, about the importance of acceptance and sincere kindness, about the magic of patience and miraculous coincidences. The book gives us the chance to discover a better world and a better version of ourselves through our self-awareness through which we can truly get to know ourselves, find our place in this world and beyond, and live in perfect harmony with nature and the entire universe. There is so much to learn from our pets. Everything we love about them is what we miss most in our lives, and that is true friendship—a pair of sincere eyes, a face without a social mask, someone to be here for us when no one else is, someone to understand us and love us unconditionally. We enjoy their company because they help us be who we really are, and they teach us how to enjoy our lives and this world in such a lovely way. Our beloved companions help us find our inner peace, and that’s exactly how we can establish universal peace—by bringing peace into our lives.

"Let your illness be your spiritual teacher!" Make a statement like that to someone who's struggled for years with, say, rheumatoid arthritis, and be prepared for an eye roll (at best). To Peter Fernando's credit, he makes that statement, and no such impulse arises. We believe him because he's been there himself and because he backs up the statements with his own real experiences and with real wisdom from the Buddhist teachings. Fernando starts by defusing the pernicious belief that anyone is somehow responsible for their illness: you're not "wrong" for being sick. Then, having gotten past self-blame, one can begin to learn self-kindness. From there, one moves to mindfulness practices and cultivating body awareness—even if body awareness is distasteful when the body isn't behaving the way you like. Further topics include getting intimate with dark emotions (fear, despair, the scary future, frustration, grief, etc.), learning equanimity (rejoicing in the good fortune of those who don't share your suffering), cultivating healthy relationships in the midst of everything, and practical advice for living with pain. Each chapter comes with one or more practices or guided meditations for putting the teachings into practice.

Positive psychology is currently equated with theory and research on the positive aspects of life. The reality could not be further from the truth. Positive psychology investigates and researches some of the most difficult and painful experiences. Second Wave Positive Psychology: Embracing the Dark Side of Life is an innovative and groundbreaking textbook that explores a variety of topics we consider to be part of the ‘dark’ side of life while emphasising their role in our positive functioning and transformation as human beings. This more nuanced approach to the notions of ‘positive’ and ‘negative’ can be described as the ‘second wave' of Positive Psychology. Positive Psychology is one of the fastest growing and least understood branches of psychology. Exploring topics at the heart of Positive Psychology, such as meaning, resilience, human development, mortality, change, suffering, and spirituality, this book engages with so-called ‘negative’ matters from a Positive Psychology angle, showing how the path of personal development can involve experiences which, while challenging, can lead to growth, insight, healing and transformation. Containing useful resources, case studies, practical exercises and chapter summaries, Second Wave Positive Psychology is an essential guide for undergraduate and postgraduate students studying positive psychology, as well as clinicians wanting to know more about the subject. It will also be relevant to the layperson who is interested in positive psychology.

Here is the account of a soul in search of the Lord, in search of his call, a call which has always been with him: a writer, a hermit in the midst of the city… a heart at rest in the arms of Jesus and His Blessed Mother. By way of pilgrimage to Medugorje at the end of a Holy Year, through a stay in a desert hermitage (where he must face the darkness and drink it in), to the finding of joy in suffering – of new life in death with Christ – here the journey is laid bare in mystical detail for the soul of any other on the way. “Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” Jn. 15:13
