Popular TV and radio personality Wallace Chapman is on a mission. A mission to chill us all out. He's thought a lot about the syndrome of modern life and thinks he has a few answers. Ranging over such subjects as careers, technology, health and well-being,food,sex and relationships, and employing a captivating mix of pop psychology,science, philosophy and humour, Chapman distils the many mixed messages we receive on a daily basis into a self-help book that's not actually a self-help book. For fans of Daniel Kahneman's bestselling Thinking, Fast and Slow, and anyone else feeling the ravages of time-poorness, Don't Just Do Something, Sit There is a profound yet populisttake on considering life as we live it. A balanced life won't happen overnight and if it does, seek help. Because slow living takes time.

I wrote this book to share with you my panic attack experiences, and my personal journey to liberation from this debilitating fear. Our life is a soul journey, and if you're experiencing panic attack it's an integral part of your unique journey. It's a very necessary step you must take for your personal growth, and it's your responsibility to allow this process to unfold. Panic Attack is one of your very own wisdom gates that you are meant to pass thru in your lifetime. Panic attack is a gift for your personal growth, but you have to recognize it. Rather than look at it as a negative, think of it as a positive, and your life will be enriched for it. My book weaves a chronological story of my panic attack episodes from what is called the bewilderment stage through my recovery stage, but it also shares an overlay of my philosophy of life derived as a husband and father of two, a businessman for over twenty five years, and a 70's hippie who lived on The Farm in Tennessee. The book can be read in several hours so it is my hope that it may offer the reader immediate relief from nervous suffering. Each chapter moves forward my journey in discovery and liberation from panic attack.

Life is more like a marathon than a sprint. Here’s how to stay well conditioned. Bill Butterworth will make you laugh–and learn while you’re doing it! In the opening chapter of this powerful little book, Bill shares with you how, while running his rotund body in a nightmarish 440-yard dash, he learned a great lesson: Life is much more like a marathon than a sprint. The attitudes and actions that result in steady success over the long haul are what make for long-term satisfaction and achievement. To experience this for yourself, you need to understand how to deal with life’s inevitable challenges: ·The “Hazies”–losing sight of long-term goals ·The “Lazies”–lacking the self-discipline to bring life back into focus ·The “Crazies”–allowing life to run out of control Each of these can be conquered by three “clarifying triangles:” setting clear priorities, learning the discipline of endurance, and reaching the finish line through skillful pacing. It all adds up to a succinct and inspiring guide to balancing excellence at work with fulfillment in all of life. Also look for the On-the-Fly-Guide to Building Successful Teams!

THE MAYA BOOK OF LIFE: UNDERSTANDING THE XULTUN TAROT is the companion book to the Xultun Tarot Classic Edition. It explores the archetypes and alchemy of the major arcana of the Xultun Tarot through indigenous teachings and the analytical psychology of C G Jung and casts new light on the meaning of 2012. The Xultun Tarot was created by Peter Balin in 1976 based on images from Maya history and culture. Taken from a single painting, it is the only tarot deck where the major arcana form a complete picture. This picture is a symbolic image of the alchemical marriage of spirit and matter and a map of what Jung called the individuation process. Only 500 copies of the original Xultun Tarot were ever printed. Now Kahurangi Press (xultun.com) has recreated this classic, long out-of-print deck true to its original large size and vibrant colours together with a book that explains the profound symbolism of the cards. Michael Owen is a clinical psychologist in private practice and author of Jung and the Native American Moon Cycles. He lives in New Zealand.

There's a fresh take on an old standby, the book of quotations. The difference with Wisdom for the Soul is in the selection and organization of the quotations. Each has been chosen for its universal application and poetic quality, grouped into one of 220 themes. While the usual subjects, are represented, the collection encompasses newer psychological territory such as Actualization, Avoidance/Denial, Chaos/Uncertainty, Polarity, Synergy, Unconscious, and more. Although the primary aim of the collection is self-help for the individual, with extensive cross-references to factors that foster or deter growth and well-being, the material will appeal to the quotation collector, speech-writer, and the general reader.
