In My "Bright" Word, Avatar Adi Da elucidates the fundamentals of "radical" self-understanding, which principles are the foundation of His Revelation of the Way of Adidam. These include: The basic principle of egoic existence, the search, which Avatar Adi Da later communicated in its simplest terms: You want to feel goodbecause you feel bad. Therefore, you are seekingin order to feel good. The essential ego-fault and the means for overcoming it: (1) Truth cannot be Realized by seeking for it. The seeking itself is the problem. When there is no seeking, Truth (or Reality) is Obvious. (2) Freedom (or Divine Liberation) is not dependent on any objective entity or process. Freedom (or Divine Liberation) Is Always Already the Case.The single logic of egoic life: The logic (or process) of separation itself, of enclosure and immunity, informs every function of the living being, every experience, every act, every event.The Grace-Given process of Radical self-understanding: (1) Observe your own self-contracting activity. Understand your own self-contracting activity. Transcend your own self-contracting activity.My Bright Word is a Gift Avatar Adi Da has Given to all--for the purpose of Divine Liberation for those who choose It. In this book, Avatar Adi Da makes it possible for anyone to read the first formal Instruction Given by the Divine Heart-Master, the Very Incarnation of Truth Itself (or Reality Itself).

In Listening to Whales, Alexandra Morton shares spellbinding stories about her career in whale and dolphin research and what she has learned from and about these magnificent mammals. In the late 1970s, while working at Marineland in California, Alexandra pioneered the recording of orca sounds by dropping a hydrophone into the tank of two killer whales. She recorded the varied language of mating, childbirth, and even grief after the birth of a stillborn calf. At the same time she made the startling observation that the whales were inventing wonderful synchronized movements, a behavior that was soon recognized as a defining characteristic of orca society. In 1984, Alexandra moved to a remote bay in British Columbia to continue her research with wild orcas. Her recordings of the whales have led her to a deeper understanding of the mystery of whale echolocation, the vocal communication that enables the mammals to find their way in the dark sea. A fascinating study of the profound communion between humans and whales, this book will open your eyes anew to the wonders of the natural world. From the Trade Paperback edition.

How can new and experienced teachers rethink the ways of teaching and learn to embrace and learn from the diversity they encounter among their students? Rather than preparing teachers to follow prescriptions or blueprints, Katherine Schultz suggests that we show them how to attend to and respond to the students they teach. In this book, she offers a conceptual framework for "deep listening," illustrating how successful teachers listen for the particularities of individual students, listen for the rhythm and balance of the whole class, listen for the broader contexts of students' lives, and listen for silence and acts of silence. Listening in this manner brings together knowledge of individual students, an understanding of a student's place within the classroom, and mastery of subject matter and pedagogy. This volume features compelling case studies that reveal the classroom lives of teachers who are exemplary listeners.

To mark John F. Kennedy's centennial, celebrate the life and legacy of the 35th President of the United States. In July 1962, in an effort to preserve an accurate record of Presidential decision-making in a highly charged atmosphere of conflicting viewpoints, strategies and tactics, John F. Kennedy installed hidden recording systems in the Oval Office and in the Cabinet Room. The result is a priceless historical archive comprising some 265 hours of taped material. JFK was elected president when Civil Rights tensions were near the boiling point, and Americans feared a nuclear war. Confronted with complex dilemmas necessitating swift and unprecedented action, President Kennedy engaged in intense discussion and debate with his cabinet members and other advisors. Now, in conjunction with the fiftieth anniversary of the Kennedy presidency, the John F. Kennedy Library and historian Ted Widmer have carefully selected the most compelling and important of these remarkable recordings for release, fully restored and re-mastered onto two 75-minute CDs for the first time. Listening In represents a uniquely unscripted, insider account of a president and his cabinet grappling with the day-to-day business of the White House and guiding the nation through a hazardous era of uncertainty. Accompanied by extensively annotated transcripts of the recordings, and with a foreword by Caroline Kennedy, Listening In delivers the story behind the story in the unguarded words and voices of the decision-makers themselves. Listening In covers watershed events, including the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Space Race, Vietnam, and the arms race, and offers fascinating glimpses into the intellectual methodology of a circumspect president and his brilliant, eclectic brain trust. Just as the unique vision of President John F. Kennedy continues to resonate half a century after his stirring speeches and bold policy decisions, the documentary candor of Listening In imparts a vivid, breathtaking immediacy that will significantly expand our understanding of his time in office.

This new collection from Cathy Caruth features interviews with a diverse group of leaders in the theorization of, and response to, traumatic experience in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Crossing the boundaries of discipline and profession, Caruth’s subjects include literary theorists and critics, psychoanalysts, psychiatrists, psychologists, political activists, filmmakers, public intellectuals, institutional leaders, and researchers. Exploring the intertwining of the intellectual and personal dimensions of experience, each interview is accompanied by Caruth's intimate photographic portrait of its subject. Caruth chose her subjects because of their impact on her thinking as well as their significant role as witnesses to the collective and cultural significance of trauma. The individuals profiled here are innovators in the theory of trauma (Part I), in the clinical, activist, or testimonial interventions in trauma (Part II), or in the creation or modification of institutions that provide therapeutic, artistic, or legal responses to traumatic events (Part III). Two of the interviews first appeared in Caruth's landmark 1995 work, Trauma: Explorations in Memory. The rest were conducted between 2011 and 2013 after the field of trauma studies expanded significantly. Representing both the foundation of trauma research and cutting-edge approaches to the topic, this collection will be useful to practitioners with an interest in post-traumatic stress disorder as well as scholars exploring the multiple dimensions of profound human experience. A portion of the proceeds from sales of this book will go to the Grady Nia Project for abused, suicidal, and low-income African American women.

"Tish McWhinny is Miss Marple without the cuteness, brought up to date and plunked down in Vermont. She is gutsy and audacious...." --Margaret Maron When B. Comfort's The Cashmere Kid appeared in 1993, Publishers Weekly wrote, "Vermont goat-herding may not sound like material for a gripping mystery, but in Comfort's hands it achieves that dimension." Now readers who missed the earlier adventures of Tish McWhinny can enjoy the very first, also set in the pristine, picture-perfect village of Lofton. The tranquility of this southern Vermont haven is disturbed, however, when Tish's newest neighbor arrives and proves to be an entire cult. Calling itself The Ring of Right, its intent and purposes are anything by apparent. Tish first senses that something is odd when a young reporter arrives to write an article on the "Ringers" and promptly disappears. Then, walking in the woods, Tish tumbles into what on examination seems to be an ancient Druid cave. By the time the inevitable murder takes place and Tish herself looks like the suspect, the little town has been transformed into a hotbed of intrigue.
