            Chaperones, suitors, and arranged marriages aren't only reserved for the heroines of a Regency period romance novel. They're just another walk in the park for this leading lady who is on a mission to find her leading lad. From the brilliant comics Yes, I'm Hot in This, Huda Fahmy... tells the hilarious story of how she met and married her husband. Navigating mismatched suitors, gossiping aunties, and societal expectations for Muslim women, That Can Be Arranged deftly and hilariously reveals to readers what it can be like to find a husband as an observant Muslim woman in the twenty-first century. So relevant in today's evolving cultural climate, Fahmy's story offers a perceptive and personal glimpse into the sometimes sticky but ultimately rewarding balance of independent choice and tradition.

            The Misleading Mind: How We Create Our Own Problems and How Buddhist Psychology Can Help Us Solve Them (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            To everyone who has ever gone to a therapist, bought a self-help book, consulted an astrological chart, or cracked open a fortune cookie in hopes of feeling happy, The Misleading Mind offers a radical message. We can achieve lasting emotional health, and we can take responsibilit...y for it ourselves, but only if learn to master the nasty tricks our minds naturally play on us. The more we explore, understand, and even come to appreciate our own self-destructive mental attitudes, the more control we'll gain over our minds, and the more authentic and wonderful our lives will be. As thousands of years of Buddhist psychology teaches us, unhappiness is fundamentally a subjective state. To overcome problems and achieve lasting happiness, we must look inward and understand how we continually thwart our own well-being by giving in to feelings and thoughts that cause us pain. By taking control of our minds and engaging these destructive feelings and thoughts head-on, we can eliminate them from our lives, alleviate suffering, and reach our true potential. The Misleading Mind is one of a new wave of popular psychology books presenting a comprehensive and clinically effective therapeutic process based on traditional Buddhist wisdom. Offering psychological insights from ancient texts and drawing on real-life examples from Karuna Cayton's therapy and coaching practice, as well as his years living in Buddhist Nepal, the book argues that lasting happiness requires a longer-term approach than Western psychology typically presumes. We can't permanently prevent or alleviate conditions that cause or lead to depression, anxiety, addictions, or eating disorders solely by taking this pill or changing that superficial behavior. Rather, we need to take time to develop a deeper awareness of human psychology and the way our problems actually arise. There are no shortcuts. No matter what our religious backgrounds, real, lasting happiness means doing the hard work of learning to see ourselves as t

            Hardly a day goes by without mention of Islam. And yet, for most people, and in much of the world, Islam remains a little-known religion. Whether the issue is violence, terrorism, women's rights or slavery, Muslims are today expected to provide answers and to justify what Islam i...s - or is not. But little opportunity exists, either in the media or in society as a whole, to describe Islam: precisely the question this short and extremely accessible book sets out to answer. In simple, direct language it will introduce readers to Islam, to its spirituality, its principles, its rituals, its diversity and its evolution.

            #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - A timely and important new book that challenges everything we think we know about cultivating true belonging in our communities, organizations, and culture, from the #1 bestselling author of Rising Strong, Daring Greatly, and The Gifts of Imperfecti...on HELLO SUNSHINE BOOK CLUB PICK True belonging doesn't require us to change who we are. It requires us to be who we are. Social scientist Bren Brown, PhD, LMSW, has sparked a global conversation about the experiences that bring meaning to our lives--experiences of courage, vulnerability, love, belonging, shame, and empathy. In Braving the Wilderness, Brown redefines what it means to truly belong in an age of increased polarization. With her trademark mix of research, storytelling, and honesty, Brown will again change the cultural conversation while mapping a clear path to true belonging. Brown argues that we're experiencing a spiritual crisis of disconnection, and introduces four practices of true belonging that challenge everything we believe about ourselves and each other. She writes, True belonging requires us to believe in and belong to ourselves so fully that we can find sacredness both in being a part of something and in standing alone when necessary. But in a culture that's rife with perfectionism and pleasing, and with the erosion of civility, it's easy to stay quiet, hide in our ideological bunkers, or fit in rather than show up as our true selves and brave the wilderness of uncertainty and criticism. But true belonging is not something we negotiate or accomplish with others; it's a daily practice that demands integrity and authenticity. It's a personal commitment that we carry in our hearts. Brown offers us the clarity and courage we need to find our way back to ourselves and to each other. And that path cuts right through the wilderness. Brown writes, The wilderness is an untamed, unpredictable place of solitude and searching. It is a place as dangerous as it is breathtaking, a p
