"Nikolai Erdman is best known as the author of the plays The Warrant and The Suicide, both written for Vsevolod Meyerhold in the 1920s. A tragic victim of Stalin's campaign to control the arts, Erdman never wrote another full-length play. What has remained veiled in obscurity until now is that Erdman, often nominally in tandem with the playwright Vladimir Mass, was also the prolific author of satirical sketches and theatrical parodies. The extraordinary wit, biting satire and lyrical humour of these short works provide both a fascinating glimpse into the creative method of one of Russia's greatest 20th-century playwrights, and an unparalleled panorama of the often mad world in which he lived. In addition to such legendary works as A Meeting About Laughter, the interludes to Hamlet, The Two Gentlemen of Verona and Pugachyov, this volume contains the transcript of a startling discussion of The Suicide at the Vakhtangov Theatre in 1930, and the only surviving fragments of what was to have been Erdman's third play, The Hypnotist. It is the first collection of Erdman's short plays ever to appear in any language."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved

In Yoga: Awakening the Inner Body, Donald Moyer draws on over thirty years of yoga teaching and practice experience. His groundbreaking work is designed for yoga students and teachers to develop a home practice and to deepen their understanding of all aspects of yoga—the anatomical, the physiological, the mental, and the spiritual. In Part One, "Finding Inner Balance," he offers a comprehensive guide for the practice of yoga’s two most important inverted poses. These two chapters help you select props according to your body type, and suggest ways to check your alignment once you are in the pose. • Salamba Sarvangasana (Shoulderstand), including variations and alternatives • Salamba Sirsasana (Headstand), including variations and alternatives Part Two, "Themes and Variations," consists of six chapters, each focusing on a different aspect of the upper body. Each chapter begins with an anatomical introducation that establishes the theme to be explored in the subsequent practice sequence. The sequences include standing poses, backbends, twists, inverted poses, forward bends, pranayama (breathing practice), and relaxation. • The Three Diaphragms: balance your three diaphragms (pelvic, respiratory, and thoracic) to facilitate movement and improve breathing • Balance Your Sternum: align your sternum—the manubrium (upper sternum), the sternal body, and the xiphoid process—to free your upper spine • Collarbones, Kidneys, and Groins: discover an effortless way to stabilize the pelvis, open the shoulders, and lengthen the spine • Align Your Shoulder Blades: work with a circular movement of your shoulder blades to create space in your shoulder joints • Stabilize Your Elbows: learn how to strengthen your arms by stabilizing your elbow joints • Strengthen the Base of Your Neck: activate the deeper muscles of your neck for a strong and healthy cervical spine

A renowned spiritual teacher guides you on a sacred passage into the temple of nature in this simple yet profound meditation guide. Since the 1940's, meditation master and vision-quest leader John P. Milton has led over 10,000 vision quests into the wilds of Colorado, the Himalayas, Bali, the Arctic, Mexico, and other powerful sites around the world. Now this pathfinder guides readers back to the wilderness within themselves, to discover how they are connected to the vast and wondrous mystery of nature. In Sky Above, Earth Below, Milton shares his Twelve Principles of Natural Liberation, then walks readers through the practice of relaxation, presence, cultivating universal energy, and more. “Written out of boundless reverence for the Earth and life itself, [Milton] transfers the wisdom of Taoism into simple terms accessible to all readers regardless of personal background” (Midwest Book Review).

Author André van Niekerk’s inquiring mind and divinely inspired ambition to understand the gospel of Jesus Christ sent him on a seven-year journey to study this subject. He explores many spiritual concepts and symbolism contained in the Bible, such as Adam’s actual sin and how it affects us; the significance of Abraham’s faith and his covenant with God; the reason God asked Abraham to sacrifice Isaac; and the purpose of the Law of Moses. He also considers these questions: Is Jesus the Messiah, and why was He born by a virgin mother? Can God simply overlook sin? Why does Jesus’ death pay for my sin? Is Jesus both the Son of God and Son of Man? Why did Jesus have to suffer so much? Is all of this fair and legal? What is grace, and why can’t Satan be offered grace? What is the result of the death and resurrection of Jesus for us? He Shall Crush Your Head answers these questions in the form of a novel based on the Bible, highlighting the truths contained therein. It contains a story running over a period of four thousand years, starting with Adam and moving on to Abraham, Moses, and eventually Simon, who was forced to carry the cross of Jesus, and his friendship with Stephen, who was eventually stoned to death for the sake of the gospel. The truths revealed in He Shall Crush Your Head can equip you to answer all those difficult questions Christians are faced with daily.

A perfect companion to the well-known Tibetan Book of the Dead. In life and in death, in meditation and in sleep, every transitional stage of consciousness, or bardo, provides an opportunity to overcome limitations, frustrations, and fears. The profound teachings in this book provide the under- standing and instruction necessary to turn every phase of life into an opportunity for uncontrived, natural liberation. Like the Tibetan Book of the Dead, Natural Liberation is a term, a "hidden treasure" attributed to the eighth-century master Padmasambhava. Gyatrul Rinpoche's lucid commentary accompanies the text, illuminating the path of awakening to the point of full enlightenment. Natural Liberation is an essential contribution to the library of both scholars and practitioners of Tibetan Buddhism.

It has often been argued that Zerubbabel, the Jewish governor of Yehud at the time of the rebuilding of the temple (late 6th century BCE), was viewed by the prophets Haggai and Zechariah as the new king in the line of David. In this new study, Rose offers a contrary proposal for the interpretation of the oracles in Haggai 2 and Zechariah 3 and 6. He traces their background in the pre-exilic prophets, pays special attention to often neglected details of semantics and metaphor, and concludes that neither Haggai nor Zechariah designated Zerubbabel as the new king in Jerusalem. Instead, the oracles in Zechariah 3 and 6 should be seen as fully messianic.

This modern guidebook to spiritual growth starts with the awakening of self-awareness; awareness of our bodies, our feelings, our thoughts and the energy that flows through every cell of our being. It leads us to the inner states of freedom and peace,seen not as the absence of conflict, but rather a response based on a deeply rooted knowledge that no matter what is happening around you, nothing can harm you at your center. Seale works with the tool of meditation and shows how we can open to the language of love and Spirit. Includes 45 exercises and meditations which speak to us in profoundly different ways at each stage of spiritual growth and can therefore be of great value both now and as our practice deepens.

A guided tour through the body’s innate healing powers Many of us have learned to ignore, deny, or even mistrust the wise messages our bodies give us. The result is that when trauma strikes, a time when we need every aspect of our beings to master the challenge, we may find ourselves disconnected from our greatest strengths. Suzanne Scurlock-Durana, who has spent thirty years studying the gifts of the body and teaching thousands how to reclaim them, began to recognize this strength, which she likens to a GPS, when she herself experienced a life-threatening trauma. Here she walks readers through different areas of the body, revealing the wisdom they hold and how to reconnect with that wisdom. As she shows in this warm, compassionate book, the body’s abilities are always available; we must simply reconnect with them.

The power of the breath has been recognized for millennia as an integral part of health and well-being. In Awakening the Sacred Body, teacher Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche makes accessible the ancient art of Tibetan breath and movement practices. In clear, easy-to-understand language, he outlines the theory and processes of two powerful meditations—the Nine Breathings of Purification and the Tsa Lung movements—that can help you change your relationship to yourself, to others, and to the world.The simple methods presented in Awakening the Sacred Body and in the accompanying online video focus on clearing and opening your energetic centers to allow the natural human qualities of love, compassion, joy, and equanimity to arise. When sadness releases, joy is able to arise. When anger releases, love becomes available. When prejudice releases, equanimity prevails. And when lack of kindness ceases, compassion is present.These practices, which focus the mind and breath together while performing specific body movements, will help you discover your inner wisdom and express your greatest potential.
