Are you trying to find love – and beginning to suspect you’re not looking in the right place? This wise, hip guide gives you a new map for the journey to happiness in relationships of all kinds, starting in your own heart. Told from the alternating vantage points of authors Meggan Watterson and Lodro Rinzler, How to Love Yourself (and Sometimes Other People) reminds us that love isn’t something we have to earn. All of us are deeply and intrinsically worthy of love – not only the love we hope to receive from others, but the love we give to ourselves – and this book offers the insight and practical tools we need to stay firmly grounded in self-love as we ride out the natural (and often stormy) cycles of relationships. Meggan and Lodro’s unique perspectives as teachers and scholars of Christian mysticism and Buddhism respectively make for a rich and lively dialogue that draws on wisdom sources like the Gospel of Mary Magdalene and the Four Noble Truths, along with funny, revealing stories from their own love lives and their deep friendship with each other. You’ll find guidance for embracing single life, dating with an open heart, and thriving in lasting love; meditations and practices for calm abiding, "disciplined hope," and connecting to the source of love within you; and tips on everything from sex, self-worth, and nourishing friendships to navigating breakups and learning to truly love yourself. Ultimately, you’ll be able to see your ideal partner in a new light – not as someone who "completes" you, but as someone who mirrors back to you your own wholeness.

We all come into this world full of promise and possibility. For some, when born into a healthy and highly functional family, the journey is quite easy, with guideposts and directions given freely. However, that is a very small population of people. Most of us were born into families that were in their own way struggling for independence, accomplishment, safety or security. For the millions of people who grew up in painful families, whether by absent parents, abusive parents, or those who were ill-equipped, noted therapist Sharon Wegscheider-Cruse shows that they do not have to follow a family tradition of compulsion or addiction. In the revised edition of the classic Learning to Love Yourself, Wegscheider-Cruse explains that it is possible to create our own self-worth at any time in our lives, even as adults. She guides readers on a journey to greater self-worth, explaining how to eliminate toxic self-defeating messages, how to choose healthier, new perspectives, and how to reinvent yourself each day open to a world of possibilities.

Drawing on many new developments in her teaching and practice, she shows how we can be empowered as both patients and healers to understand and work with our most fundamental healing power: the light that emerges from the very center of our humanity. In a unique approach that encourages a cooperative effort among healer, patient, and other health-care providers, Light Emerging explains what the healer perceives visually, audibly, and kinesthetically and how each of us can participate in every stage of the healing process. Presenting a fascinating range of research, from a paradigm of healing based on the science of holography to insights into the "hara level" and the "core star," Light Emerging is at the leading edge of healing practice in our time.

Through a variety of moving, personal stories, a rare breadth of well-founded ideas and her own inspiring belief in the rewards of love, Stephanie Dowrick shows how possible it is to experience the pleasures of self-acceptance - and the last joy of satisfying connections with others.

Meet Wonderful -- a sweet and precocious young girl growing up in the Southside of Chicago. Wonderful, her mother and father, and six brothers and sister grew up in a part of town that most people ignored in the days of the 1960s. Not much has changed as far as the neighborhood, but Wonderful has changed -- some may even say has been reborn. Wonderful's father died when she was only eleven years old. This tragic event molded the way that Wonderful perceived things. She was angry and she worked out that anger during her teenage years and into her adult life through sex, drugs, alcohol, abusive relationships and self-destructive habits. One day everything changed -- Wonderful had an epiphany -- she began to view life in a brand new way. She regained her faith in God; she found a Twelve-Step program to rid herself of the addictions, both physical and mental, that had kept her from being free. She became a talented, humorous and intelligent woman. In other words, Wonderful healed. She embraced her pain and used it to heal herself, to give hope and to inspire others to do the same. Taylor Ashley Storm's beautifully written tale is based on her life.It is a story of love, acceptance, and forgiveness. It will resonate with anyone who is struggling with pain, grief and loneliness and gives voice to those who need to know that life can be wondrous. Author Bio: Taylor Ashley Storm is a writer, poet, and songwriter. She lives in Chicago. Begging for C.H.A.N.G.E. is her first book. Publisher's Web site: http: //
