"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

He Shall Crush Your Head

He Shall Crush Your Head

The crowd laughs mockingly when they see Jesus clothed in a purple robe, with a mock - crown, platted of thin tree branches, on His head.

View: 136

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.

In Rewire Your Brain for Love, neuropsychologist Marsha Lucas brings together neuroscience and mindfulness meditation in an exciting program to help readers create and sustain better, healthier, juicier romantic relationships. With a passion for neuroscience and the ability to relay it in a clear, unintimidating-and funny- manner, Lucas delves into how the human brain works in relationships, exploring the neurological connections that fuel our reactions. In an inviting and reassuring tone, she describes how we developed our current relationship wiring and how to modify it through mindfulness meditation. Focusing on nine high-voltage benefits-including everything from being able to better manage your reactions, to improved communication with yourself and others, to an enhanced ability to handle fear-Lucas shows how a short daily meditation practice can change the way you interact with everyone around you…especially those closest to you. Each chapter focuses on one benefit, including an in-depth description of exactly what that benefit is and how it will improve the reader's life. She looks at the science and research associated with mindfulness meditation in relation to each benefit, and then provides readers with a specific meditation to help bring that benefit into their relationships. Imagine, instead of blowing up at an off-hand statement your partner makes, you are able to stop, breathe, and respond in a thoughtful manner. And as the author says, "You don't have to become a monk, or a vegetarian, or spend hours contemplating your navel"; you simply need to notice your mind's busyness and not get all tangled up in it. This simple process truly can change your life.

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.

"The Head That Wears The Crown" is the gritty story of Darius King –― a 23 year old CEO from the tough streets of Atlanta –― who finds himself in an all-out war to save everything and everyone that belongs to him, while also discovering the truth about his past. Darius became a millionaire overnight when he was only eighteen years old. After his highly successful father, whom he never had the opportunity to know, passed away, Darius found out that he was left a multi-million dollar investment firm in his father's will. From that day forward Darius was groomed by those who helped his father build the company to take over as the legitimate CEO of Kingdom Enterprises, the way that his father intended. But there are many vultures who intend to take his father's fortune, and they will get Darius out of the picture by any means necessary. His personal life proves to be just as hectic as Darius finds himself torn between three women. Kenya was his high school sweetheart and he has continued to see her on and off over the years. Darius has no desire for a committed relationship, that is until he meets Natalie. Natalie is beautiful, intelligent, sophisticated, and everything that he would want in a woman. But getting her to see him in a positive light seems to be harder than expected in the beginning. Then there’s Juanita, his personal assistant who has been trying to seduce him for the past five years. In spite of being warned of the consequences of mixing business with pleasure, Darius is finding it virtually impossible to resist Juanita’s sensuality and provocative ways. Darius solicits the help of the streets as his business and personal life clash in the midst of a war that is meant to destroy him for good. He struggles to know who he can and cannot trust as everyone appears to have a hidden motive behind why they want to be connected to him. Among those with intentions of bringing him to his knees is his half-brother whom Darius never knew existed. Darius is finally beginning to see just how weighty the crown is, and he eventually realizes that the plot to take him out reaches even further than he could have ever imagined.
