“This #1 New York Times Best Selling Book, HEALING THE SHAME THAT BINDS YOU, was written years ago with millions of copies sold and is still selling more than 13,000 copies every year, has been completely updated and expanded by the author John Bradshaw.
“I used to drink,” writes John Bradshaw, “to solve the problems caused by drinking. The more I drank to relieve my shame-based loneliness and hurt, the more I felt ashamed.”
Shame is the motivator behind our toxic behaviors: the compulsion, co-dependency, addiction, and drive to superachieve that breaks down the family and destroys personal lives. It limits the development of self esteem and causes anxiety and depression, and limits our ability to be connected in relationships. This book has helped millions identify their personal shame, understand the underlying reasons for it, address these root causes, and release themselves from the shame that binds them to their past failures.”
“Most of us yearn for a life free of fear, pain, insecurity, and doubt. We long for peace, for the ability to love and be loved openly and freely, and the confidence and clarity to meet the various challenges we face in our daily lives.
In OPEN HEART, OPEN MIND, Tsoknyi Rinpoche – one of the most beloved of the contemporary generation of Tibetan Buddhist meditation masters – explains that such a life is not only possible: it’s our birthright. Within each of us resides a spark of unparalleled brilliance, an unlimited capacity for warmth, openness, and courage, which Rinpoche identifies as “essence love.”
Timeless and imperishable, essence love is often layered over by patterns of behavior and belief that urge us to seek happiness in conditions or situations that never quite live up to their promise.”
“In 2013 Assata Shakur, founding member of the Black Liberation Army, former Black Panther and godmother of Tupac Shakur, became the first ever woman to make the FBI’s most wanted terrorist list.
Assata Shakur’s trial and conviction for the murder of a white state trooper in the spring of 1973 divided America. Her case quickly became emblematic of race relations and police brutality in the USA. While Assata’s detractors continue to label her a ruthless killer, her defenders cite her as the victim of a systematic, racist campaign to criminalize and suppress black nationalist organizations.
This intensely personal and political autobiography reveals a sensitive and gifted woman, far from the fearsome image of her that is projected by the powers that be. With wit and candour Assata recounts the formative experiences that led her to embrace a life of activism. With pained awareness she portrays the strengths, weaknesses and eventual demise of black and white revolutionary groups at the hands of the state.
A major contribution to the history of black liberation, destined to take its place alongside The Autobiography of Malcolm X and the works of Maya Angelou.” – Assata – An Autobiography. Assata Shakur.
“Considered by many to be Seth’s “greatest” work, The Nature of Personal Reality (by Jane Roberts) is simply the best manual ever written on the art of consciously creating your reality. In it Seth provides a clear articulation of how people create their reality from their thoughts, emotions and beliefs and provides the tools for individuals to truly take charge of their minds and their lives. To this day it stands out as one of the finest metaphysical books ever written!”
“In Fire Shut Up in My Bones, New York Times columnist Charles M. Blow mines the rich poetry of the out-of-time Louisiana town where he grew up — a place where slavery’s legacy felt close, reverberating in the elders’ stories and in the near-constant wash of violence.
An isolated boy, Blow is fiercely attached to his mother, a woman with five sons, brass knuckles in her glove box, a job plucking poultry, a soon-to-be ex-husband, and a love of newspapers and learning. But the closeness doesn’t protect him from secret abuse at the hands of an older cousin. It’s damage that triggers years of searing self-questioning.
Drawing on nothing but fleeting images from the outside world — MLK, Prince Charles — and on Blow’s own uncanny inner life, he remakes himself into someone who looks like a “popular boy.”
Finally, he escapes to a nearby state university, joining a black fraternity after a passage of brutal hazing. Here Blow enters a world of racial and sexual privilege that feels — at first — like everything he’s ever needed and wanted.
From one of our most acclaimed public voices, a bravely personal, one-of-a-kind story of self-invention — an instant classic of African-American storytelling from the South.”
“The Motivation Manifesto (by Brendon Burchard) is a pulsing, articulate, ferocious call to claim our personal power. World-renowned high performance trainer Brendon Burchard reveals that the main motive of humankind is the pursuit of greater Personal Freedom. We desire the grand liberties of choice – time freedom, emotional freedom, social freedom, financial freedom, spiritual freedom. Only two enemies stand in our way: an external enemy, defined as the social oppression of who we are by the mediocre masses and an internal enemy, a sort of self-oppression caused by our own doubt and fear.
The march to Personal Freedom, Burchard argues, can be won only by declaring our intent and independence, stepping into our personal power, and battling through self-doubt and the distractions of the day until full victory is won. Recalling the revolutionist voices of the past that chose freedom over tyranny, Burchard – at times poetic yet always fierce – motivates us to free ourselves from fear and take back our lives once and for all.”
“In the spirit of Maya Angelou’s I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, Frank McCourt’s Angela’s Ashes, and Piri Thomas’s Down These Mean Streets, this powerful memoir by writer and activist Kevin Powell vividly recounts the horrific poverty of his youth, his struggles to overcome a legacy of anger, violence, and self-hatred, and his journey to be a man and a voice for others.
Driven by his single mother’s dreams for his survival and success, Powell became the first in his family to attend a university, where he became a student leader keenly aware of widespread social injustice. But the struggle to define himself and break out of poverty continued into adulthood, with traumatic periods of homelessness and despair. As a young star journalist with Vibe magazine, Powell interviewed luminaries such as Tupac Shakur, writing influential chronicles of the evolution of hiphop from his eyewitness view. Now, with searing honesty, Powell examines his troubled relationships, his appearance on MTV’s first season of “The Real World,” his battles with alcohol and depression, his two campaigns for Congress, and the uplifting trip to Africa that renewed his sense of personal mission. Finally, Powell embarks on a search for the father he never really knew in a redemptive passage from abandonment to self-discovery.
A striking memoir by a child of post-Civil Rights America, The Education of Kevin Powell gives eloquent testimony to the power of the soul to heal.”
“Getting the Love you Want (by Harville Hendrix) gives couples the concepts and tools they need to achieve safety, sustain deep connection, and experience joyful aliveness. It can bring you healing, wholeness, and spiritual growth by addressing your childhood and relational wounds, and activating undeveloped potential. You and your partner can reach deeper levels by moving from an unconscious to a conscious relationship using Imago Relationship Therapy, a transformational approach that allows you to experience new levels of safety and appreciation.”
Tammy Nelson, Ph.D. says in the article Getting The Love You Want, “(Harville) Hendrix says that we always choose a partner that mirrors the places in us that we need to develop in ourselves.”
Tammy, adds “Our partners help us to find those places within us that need healing. Don’t underestimate your choice in a mate. It’s no mistake that you are with the person you are with. The person you choose is ideally suited to help you finish off the unfinished growth of your childhood. We always choose the perfect person to help us grow into our highest selves. However, it’s hard to grow. And so we resist. We don’t like to change.”
“These firsthand accounts by survivors once diagnosed as terminally ill will appeal to those who found comfort in Norman Cousins’s Anatomy of an Illness. In informative, inspiring commentaries, Massachusetts psychologist Roud writes that those who overcome cancer or other fatal diseases share a will to live, positive mental attitude and the ability to alter lifestyle. As one patient here notes, “It was either change or die.” This outlook is the key, according to Roud, to these “miracles.””
“According to psychologist Roud, medical science grossly understates the incidence of extraordinary recovery from serious illness. To bridge this “information gap,” Roud interviewed in depth 11 men and women who have conquered overwhelming medical odds–against cancer, heart disease, cystic fibrosis, and severe mental illness. Although each found his or her own way back to health, the factor that Roud sees as setting them apart from others who were not so fortunate was their ability to change and grow. Readers looking for easy answers will not find them here, nor will they find the sheer exuberance that they find in the books of Roud’s friend, Dr. Bernie Siegel, but those looking for hope that they too can change their lives, that they too can overcome tremendous medical odds, will find it.” – Making Miracles: An Exploration into the Dynamics of Self-Healing by Paul C. Roud.
“We’re taught to think of love as something that happens to us. It’s a magical but altogether passive experience. In her deeply personal and emphatic All about Love, renowned social activist and feminist bell hooks asserts that, in fact, love is a choice we must all make and it’s not nearly as abstract or elusive as many of us have come to believe. The book not only explores the role of love in our lives and the ways our culture has distorted its meaning, but guides us — with clear definitions and examples — toward a better understanding of how to cultivate it. If you’ve ever wondered why some relationships stand the test of time while others crumble, you should read this book.

“There is a fundamental opportunity for happiness right within our reach, yet we usually miss it – ironically while we are caught up in attempts to escape pain and suffering. Drawn from traditional Buddhist wisdom, Pema’s radical and compassionate advice for what to do when things fall apart in our lives goes against the grain of our usual habits and expectations. There is only one approach to suffering that is of lasting benefit, Pema teaches, and that approach involves moving toward painful situations with friendliness and curiosity, relaxing into the essential groundlessness of our entire situation. It is there, in the midst of chaos, that we can discover the truth and love that are indestructible.” – When Things Fall Apart by Pema Chödrön.
“With its first great victory in the landmark Supreme Court decision, Brown vs. Board of Education in 1954, the Civil Rights movement gained the powerful momentum it needed to sweep forward into its crucial decade, the 1960s. As voices of protest and change rose above the din of history and false promises, one sounded more urgently, more passionately than the rest. Malcolm X – once called the most dangerous man in America – challenged the world to listen and learn the truth as he experienced it. And his enduring message is as relevant today as when he first delivered it. This is the first hardcover edition of this classic autobiography since it was originally published in 1964. In its searing pages, Malcolm X the Muslim leader, firebrand, and anti-integrationist, tells the extraordinary story of his life and the growth of the Black Muslim movement to veteran writer and journalist Alex Haley. In a unique collaboration, Alex Haley worked with Malcolm X for nearly two years, interviewing, listening to, and understanding the most controversial leader of his time. Raised in Lansing, Michigan, Malcolm Little’s road to world fame was as astonishing as it was unpredictable. After drifting from childhood poverty to petty crime, Malcolm found himself in jail. It was there that he came into contact with the teachings of a little-known Black Muslim leader named Elijah Muhammed. The newly renamed Malcolm X devoted himself body and soul to the teachings of Elijah Muhammed and the world of Islam, and became the Nation’s foremost spokesman. When his own conscience forced him to break with Elijah Muhammed, Malcolm founded the Organization of Afro-American Unity, to reach African Americans across the country with an inspiring message of pride, power, and self-determination. The Autobiography of Malcolm X defines American culture and the African-American struggle for social and economic equality that has now become a battle for survival.”
“Using Stanford University’s voluminous collection of archival material, including previously unpublished writings, interviews, recordings, and correspondence, King scholar Clayborne Carson has constructed a remarkable first-person account of Dr. King’s extraordinary life.”
“Martin Luther King, Jr. was an American Baptist minister, activist, humanitarian, and leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement. He is best known for his role in the advancement of civil rights using nonviolent civil disobedience based on his Christian beliefs.”
