Developing A Spiritual Relationship leads couples through the flurry and excitement of wedding planning and provides tangible suggestions for bringing spirituality into their lives before the wedding, at the ceremony and after the "I Do's." It is filled with ideas, rituals and good commonsense advice on how to create those special moments instilling quiet interludes during the rush-rush of hectic planning. This book has been written for wedding couples who are searching for different ways to bring peace and contentment into their lives. Using fresh perspectives Rev. Charlann Walker encourages incorporating simple rituals in the everyday part of our lives. Divided into three sections, the first one, "Rituals to Create A "Time Out", deals with the time before the wedding ceremony. There are ideas such as treasure mapping, meditations, creative imagery, working with different scents, collecting touchstones all of which encourage couples to take a "time out" from the flurry of excitement. The second section shares special suggestions for bringing spirituality within the wedding ceremony. Different ways to write your own vows, special readings and all sorts of symbolism, such as a stone blessing, flower ceremony, hand fasting, water ceremony create a sacred and memorable ceremony. The third part deals with spiritual suggestions and ideas to work with after the "I do's." Ways to strengthen a relationship include holding family meetings, providing time to journal together, even planting a tree in honor of your relationship, and yes, even making a butterfly garden. Much effort goes into the planning of a wedding, be it large or small. With the overwhelming details and decisions certain uncertainties may occur. Even though there is so much love and excitement, all of may lead to confusion. Sometimes frustrations can replace joy and overwhelming preparations can replace happiness. Some couples seem to have settled into the notion that in order to hold those splendid ceremonies we must loose ourselves in the continuous planning of each detail. Of course we want everything to be wonderful, but it is also important to take the time to center our souls and smooth our spirits. This practical handbook guides couples toward a healthy relationship and provides ways to build a strong foundation.

This volume tackles a quickly-evolving field of inquiry, mapping the existing discourse as part of a general attempt to place current developments in historical context; at the same time, breaking new ground in taking on novel subjects and pursuing fresh approaches. The term "A.I." is used to refer to a broad range of phenomena, from machine learning and data mining to artificial general intelligence. The recent advent of more sophisticated AI systems, which function with partial or full autonomy and are capable of tasks which require learning and 'intelligence', presents difficult ethical questions, and has drawn concerns from many quarters about individual and societal welfare, democratic decision-making, moral agency, and the prevention of harm. This work ranges from explorations of normative constraints on specific applications of machine learning algorithms today-in everyday medical practice, for instance-to reflections on the (potential) status of AI as a form of consciousness with attendant rights and duties and, more generally still, on the conceptual terms and frameworks necessarily to understand tasks requiring intelligence, whether "human" or "A.I."
