Congratulations! You're holding the world's first off-planet yoga manual! And believe it or not, this book contains over five new schools of yoga that were single-handedly discovered by Joel Goldman while staring at the cosmos one evening. From life aboard the International Space Station today to the forthcoming manned missions to the moon and Mars, mankind is moving out into space and adjusting to different ways of life outside Earth's environment. Goldman explores extraterrestrial travel and shows that not only can yoga help us adjust to it, but that the frontiers of yoga can be pioneered outside the confines of gravity. Whether you're a budding astronaut new to yoga, or a budding yogi new to space, this is the book for you! Anyone curious about both will enjoy this humorous and enthusiastic journey into near-orbit, the near future, and beyond! Joel Goldman's interest in space missions and comedy began early in life. He first studied yoga while traveling in Nepal during college, and his fascination with it drew him back to India soon after. Unable to decide between yoga and space, he became a chiropractor instead. Goldman is working on a number of sequels to this work including: Martial Arts on the Moon and Beyond, Golf on the Moon and Beyond, and SCUBA diving on the Moon and Beyond.For now, though, he's busy cleaning his telescope so he can get a better handle on what's going on out there.

Are you free to believe the unbelievable? Can you be amazed that a dove can have faith? Can you believe that a human heart prayed for a dove?"I stayed by my kitchen window, eyes shut and hands clenched, praying in the Spirit for The Dove in the Wind."The message of this book is not mine; it is the voice and song of Ruach the dove. She sings God's love story. It is the voice of the Holy Spirit speaking to all believers, no matter the country, the race, or religious denomination. It is the voice of God that fills us to overflow with the Spirit; calling us to the highest place; inviting us to seek Him in the fullness of Christ. It sings of freedom found at the cross and in the power of his resurrection. It is a call to make the Christian life real and practical.Since 2000, Dr. Silvia Lia Leigh has been co-pastor of Father's House Bible Church, Delta State, Nigeria. Her women's ministry has inspired women in Nigeria and around the world. She is the author of Sing Deborah Sing.

Human consciousness has perplexed philosophers, artists and scientists for centuries. Some hold it to be purely physical, while others believe it transcends the material world. Now comes a book that offers a new perspective - based entirely on evidence from the natural sciences - whereby materialism and dualism co-exist. The author - a distinguished pioneer of nonlinear dynamics - bases his argument on a hierarchical view of mental organization; a stairway. Atoms give rise to molecules, neurons form the brain and individual consciousness leads to shared culture. All steps are needed to complete the picture and each level derives from the previous one. The book shows specialists how each of their fields adds to the overall picture, while providing general readers with an introduction to this investigation.

THE SECRETS OF the past meet the shocks of the present. Aslaug is an unusual young woman. Her mother has brought her up in near isolation, teaching her about plants and nature and language—but not about life. Especially not how she came to have her own life, and who her father might be. When Aslaug’s mother dies unexpectedly, everything changes. For Aslaug is a suspect in her mother’s death. And the more her story unravels, the more questions unfold. About the nature of Aslaug’s birth. About what she should do next. About whether divine miracles have truly happened. And whether, when all other explanations are impossible, they might still happen this very day. Addictive, thought-provoking, and shocking, Madapple is a page-turning exploration of human nature and divine intervention—and of the darkest corners of the human soul. From the Hardcover edition.

“Beasts of the Southern Wild” meets Because of Winn Dixie in this inspiring story of hope. August “Auggie” Jones lives with her Grandpa Gus, a trash hauler, in a poor part of town. So when her wealthy classmate’s father starts the House Beautification Committee, it’s homes like Auggie’s that are deemed “in violation.” Auggie is determined to prove that she is not as run-down as the outside of her house might suggest. Using the kind of items Gus usually hauls to the scrap heap, a broken toaster becomes a flower; church windows turn into a rainbow walkway; and an old car gets new life as spinning whirligigs. What starts out as a home renovation project becomes much more as Auggie and her grandpa discover a talent they never knew they had—and redefine a whole town’s perception of beauty, one recycled sculpture at a time. Auggie’s talent for creating found art will remind readers that one girl’s trash really is another girl’s treasure.

Winner of the 2002 Scotiabank Giller Prize and of the 2003 Commonwealth Writers’ Prize: Best Book (Canada and the Caribbean) When an elderly Bimshire village woman calls the police to confess to a murder, the result is a shattering all-night vigil that brings together elements of the African diaspora in one epic sweep. Set on the post-colonial West Indian island of Bimshire in 1952, The Polished Hoe unravels over the course of 24 hours but spans the lifetime of one woman and the collective experience of a society informed by slavery. As the novel opens, Mary Mathilda is giving confession to Sargeant, a police officer she has known all her life. The man she claims to have murdered is Mr. Belfeels, the village plantation owner for whom she has worked for more than thirty years. Mary has also been Mr. Belfeels’ mistress for most of that time and is the mother of his only son, Wilberforce, a successful doctor. What transpires through Mary’s words and recollections is a deep meditation about the power of memory and the indomitable strength of the human spirit. Infused with Joycean overtones, this is a literary masterpiece that evokes the sensuality of the tropics and the tragic richness of Island culture.

...life is mocked by death, and we are the fools." --Justin Chance. Is this the despairing conviction of an eighteen-year-old boy haunted by personal demons pursuing him as he runs from a tragic past? Or were these words uttered in ignorance of the real demons seen by supersleuth Benjamin Wade as the Baby-Boomer parents of Michael Weston and Michael's betrothed Erin Jennings. When the friendship of Michael and Justin metamorphoses into romantic love before the fireplace on a snowy Christmas Eve, their lives suddenly change forever. Michael, a successful software entrepreneur at the young age of twenty, must now choose between Love and Love and can only watch helplessly as his world begins to collapse around him. A story of two boys who are coming of age in a Baby Boomer-dominated society and who find themselves suddenly faced with all the great questions humanity has perpended for millennia--questions about love and life and fate and who we are as participants in the social order, indeed as members of the human species--it is an indictment of the Boomer generation and the world that generation has created. As Michael and Justin struggle to understand the great personal and societal forces bearing down heavily upon them and to do what they each believe in their young minds is the right thing under impossible circumstances, their superior intelligence can find little guidance in the accepted wisdom of their country. A cast of colorful characters animates a story of deep emotion engaging the reader, a story whose suspense rivets as it builds toward the dramatic climax.
