Most of us are no strangers to health problems, illness, or pain, but what if there's a solution to restore our well-being that doesn't involve drugs, surgery, or other medical procedures? Well, there is, and you'll find it within your own body. That's right! Your body has a built-in capacity to heal itself—a remarkable system of self-repair that works day in and day out—and improving its ability to heal is within your control. Yet most people don't fully grasp the body's incredible power to heal itself, largely because traditional medicine has led us to believe that health comes from the outside in and not from the inside out. Did you know, for example, that many illnesses may eventually heal on their own? It's true! In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Fabrizio Mancini, an expert in self-healing medicine, shows you how to tap into your body's own healing powers through: · Simple substitutions to your daily diet—foods called “strengtheners”—that can enhance your ability to self-heal · The latest breakthrough supplements that can boost the self-healing capacities of your body · New insights into how physical activity floods your body with natural healing substances · The latest nondrug, noninvasive technologies that can bring you back to health · The power of the mind and spirit to heal the body · Inspiring stories of real-life self-healing · A 21-day program to unlock your self-healing powers If you choose to take care of your body every day, it will reward you a thousand times over—improving your odds against everything from heart disease, cancer, and diabetes to arthritis, allergies, colds . . . and more. Remember, you have the power to be and stay healthy because healing truly comes from within. The Power of Self-Healing will help you accomplish all this and more!

In this challenging book, the leading exponents of the idea that all religions are a refraction of a truth no single tradition can exclusively reveal, discuss what to make of that conviction in today's world of inter-religious strife. New in this book is the inclusion of authors from a variety of traditions, including John Hick, Rita Gross, Arvind Sharma, Roger Haight, Dan Cohn-Sherbok, and Mahmut Aydin. The authors try to make the case that the next step in inter-religious interchange ought to be the development of a multi-faith, pluralistic theology of religion.

"In this book, Jungian analyst Allan Guggenbuhl develops a completely new psychological theory about men. He maintains that traditional psychotherapy has failed to tackle the main objectives that motivate men in their private and public lives." "When men dedicate themselves to work, fight for social causes, start families, or get crazy over sports, they are enacting concealed mythic patterns - patterns that lie at the very heart of our culture. Men have a natural affinity for myth and mythmaking which, Guggenbuhl maintains, results in grandiose aspirations and what often appears to be the purest sort of self-indulgence. At the same time, such thinking also helps to explain a seeming helplessness that men have in dealing with their own feelings." "Once all of this is understood, a true equality in relationships, based on the differences between the sexes, may also be attained. Men can thereby achieve a greater understanding and more realistic appreciation of their strengths and weaknesses."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

This dissertation examines a number of mainly twentieth-century novels written by women whose works reflect the problem of woman's identity and its fictional representation. It analyses the confrontation of the authors and their protagonists respectively with the old values imposed upon them, their struggle to free themselves, and their search for appropriate ways of expressing their insights into new concepts of female identity.

Life in the west is lived within a culture awash with the advertising, brand-names and labels of conspicuous consumerism. Accordingly, consumerism and consumer culture have become central to critical discussions of identity, postmodernity and culture as never before. And yet critiques of consumerism are largely confined to those who argue either for or against notions of elitism or manipulation. In the main, theorists such as Bauman, Giddens and Hall do not offer alternatives to consumerism, but argue that it is an all-enveloping and inescapable imperative, and a dominant motivation in contemporary life. This book challenges the assumptions behind these discussions of consumerism, and to broaden our understanding of the true nature of contemporary society. Lodziak argues that all-encompassing visions of consumerism are useful only as an ideology. They are not a realistic representation of modern culture and society, and, therefore, the understanding of identity that they offer is limited. In The Myth of Consumerism Lodziak opens up the debate, offering a cogent critique of consumer culture and analysing the role it really plays in our lives.
