            'Perhaps you wonder what a dusty old Buddhist ex-monk has to say that's relevant to your life. Fair enough. Let me tell you what the book is not. It's not about religion. It's not about telling you how to live your life. It's not about taking on a new set of beliefs. Plain and si...mple, it's about how to relate to your own thoughts and emotions in a way that makes your life more enjoyable, more free, brighter, clearer and wiser.' At the age of twenty-six, Bjoern Natthiko Lindeblad abandoned a promising career, gave away all his possessions and left his loved ones to become a forest monk in Thailand. For seventeen years he lived his life according to the rules of the monastery. After returning to Swedish society, he was met with a diagnosis of a progressive, incurable disease: ALS. In I May Be Wrong, he shares his hard-won insights into how one can live a more present life, and what stands out as most important when things are coming to an end. The result is a beautiful, powerful and urgent last lesson on how we can live more peacefully with ourselves, and come to accept the uncertainty that is a part of all we do.

            A spellbinding literary thriller packed with psychological suspense and profound questions about motherhood, trauma and how death illuminates life. --Amy Tan, bestselling author of The Joy Luck Club and Where the Past Begins Barbara Graham is a literary alchemist. What Jonah Knew... not only grabs you from the first page, it makes the mystical believable and the human predicament shine with wit, wisdom, and love. --Tara Brach, meditation teacher and bestselling author of Radical Acceptance and Radical Compassion A seven-year-old boy inexplicably recalls the memories of a missing 22-year-old musician in this psychological thriller about the fierce love between mothers and sons across lifetimes, a work of gripping suspense with a supernatural twist that will mesmerize fans of Chloe Benjamin and Lisa Jewell. In September 2002, young musician Henry Bird mysteriously disappears in Aurora Falls. He's last seen walking towards the Timber Creek Motel. In May 2003, Jonah Daniel is born to Lucie and Matt Pressman in New York City. Four years later, the episodes start. The mysterious night terrors. The imaginary friends Jonah insists are real. The dog named Charlie and his other mom. But Jonah doesn't have a pet or another mother. When a psychologist suggests that Jonah may be having recollections of a previous life, this shocking news leads Lucie Pressman to Helen Bird, the owner of Queen Hearts Bakery in Aurora Falls and Henry Bird's mother. Aching for her lost son, Helen remains unconditionally devoted to solving his disappearance. Is it possible that little Jonah is Helen;s son come back to her? Or just a cruel and unsettling coincidence? But how could he seem to know things about Henry's life? Left with so many questions and seemingly no answers, the two mothers join forces to make sense of the unimaginable. It is a quest that will force them to redefine what it means not just to be a mother or a human being, but the very nature of life--and death.

            A POWERFUL WORK OF SPIRITUALITY AND ANTI-RACISM -Publishers Weekly IF YOU READ ONE BOOK IN 2020, MAKE IT THIS ONE. -Tricycle From much-admired meditation expert Sebene Selassie, You Belong is a call to action, exploring our tangled relationship with belonging, connection, and eac...h other You are not separate. You never were. You never will be. We are not separate from each other. But we don't always believe it, and we certainly don't always practice it. In fact, we often practice the opposite-disconnection and domination. From unconscious bias to cancel culture, denial of our inherent interconnection limits our own freedom. In You Belong, much-admired meditation expert Sebene Selassie reveals that accepting our belonging is the key to facing the many challenges currently impacting our world. Using ancient philosophy, multidisciplinary research, exquisite storytelling, and razor-sharp wit, Selassie leads us in an exploration of all the ways we separate (and thus suffer) and offers a map back to belonging. To belong is to experience joy in any moment: to feel pleasure, dance in public, accept death, forgive what seems unforgivable, and extend kindness to yourself and others. To belong is also to acknowledge injustice, reckon with history, and face our own shadows. Full of practical advice and profound revelations, You Belong makes a winning case for resisting the forces that demand separation and reclaiming the connection-and belonging-that have been ours all along.

            The Misleading Mind: How We Create Our Own Problems and How Buddhist Psychology Can Help Us Solve Them
             

            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
