Aus dem inneren Wissen schöpfen. Schon seit dem Medizinstudium wurde Christiane Northrup von einer inneren Weisheit geführt, die ihr zeigte, wie Körper, Geist und Seele untrennbar miteinander verbunden sind. Uns wirklich gut zu fühlen bedeutet nämlich viel mehr als körperliche Wellness – es heißt, emotional in Balance und spirituell erfüllt zu sein. Genau deshalb ist auch die moderne Schulmedizin unvollständig, denn sie versucht Symptome mit Medikamenten auszumerzen oder gar durch Operationen zu entfernen. Besser wäre es herauszufinden, was wirklich fehlt! Die Bestsellerautorin und weltweit bekannte Gynäkologin beschreibt ihren eigenen faszinierenden Lebensweg, auf dem sie eine einzigartige Verbindung aus Medizin, emotionaler Heilungsarbeit und Spiritualität geschaffen hat. Und sie zeigt die besten Methoden, Übungen und Gebete, die jedem Menschen zu ganzheitlichem Wohlbefinden verhelfen können – um aus der eigenen Mitte heraus die uns innewohnende Weisheit zum Strahlen zu bringen.

Act like a lady. Land a career. Find a man. Learn how to cook. Rear amazing kids. Oh! And be sure you stay thin. Pressure to perform and conform starts early in a woman's life and never stops. In attempts to compensate and keep up appearances, we lose our ability to keep in touch with the truest parts of ourselves. We put on masks and hide the painful parts of our stories. If we get a quiet moment, we are ambushed with doubts: Who am I? This book serves as a companion as we find ourselves, our sense of community and our identity in God. Designed to take you deeper with God on your own or with a group of sisters, journey alongside experienced ministers Adele Ahlberg Calhoun and Tracey Bianchi into some of the places where women struggle—no matter what their age or life-stage. Personal resources like journaling questions and a small group guide help women support each other on the way. These pages offer a reminder that there is a beloved, "true you" waiting to be known in each of us and that a world in need awaits the unique stories that each of us were made to tell.

The Christian Skeptic was written for those who are not sure if they can still call themselves Christian because they are no longer able to "drink the Kool-Aid" of orthodoxy. It is also for seekers who find the person of Jesus intriguing or compelling but who struggle with all the doctrines that surround his story. Inspired by Leslie Weatherhead's now out-of-print book The Christian Agnostic, Jody Seymour takes a fresh look at some of the basic tenets of the Christian Faith. He offers new insight into concepts such as the nature of God, the person and work of Jesus, how to read the Bible, the role of the church, and the question of whether or not Jesus really said "my way or the highway." This book will give you an opportunity to explore the faith with the windows open to some fresh air, and you may discover that being caught between belief and doubt is a good place to be.

Backpacking with the Saints

Wilderness Hiking as Spiritual Practice

Category: Religion

Release On

Carrying only basic camping equipment and a collection of the world's great spiritual writings, Belden C. Lane embarks on solitary spiritual treks through the Ozarks and across the American Southwest. For companions, he has only such teachers as Rumi, John of the Cross, Hildegard of Bingen, Dag Hammarskjöld, and Thomas Merton, and as he walks, he engages their writings with the natural wonders he encounters--Bell Mountain Wilderness with Søren Kierkegaard, Moonshine Hollow with Thich Nhat Hanh--demonstrating how being alone in the wild opens a rare view onto one's interior landscape, and how the saints' writings reveal the divine in nature. The discipline of backpacking, Lane shows, is a metaphor for a spiritual journey. Just as the wilderness offered revelations to the early Desert Christians, backpacking hones crucial spiritual skills: paying attention, traveling light, practicing silence, and exercising wonder. Lane engages the practice not only with a wide range of spiritual writings--Celtic, Catholic, Protestant, Buddhist, Hindu, and Sufi Muslim--but with the fascination of other lovers of the backcountry, from John Muir and Ed Abbey to Bill Plotkin and Cheryl Strayed. In this intimate and down-to-earth narrative, backpacking is shown to be a spiritual practice that allows the discovery of God amidst the beauty and unexpected terrors of nature. Adoration, Lane suggests, is the most appropriate human response to what we cannot explain, but have nonetheless learned to love. An enchanting narrative for Christians of all denominations, Backpacking with the Saints is an inspiring exploration of how solitude, simplicity, and mindfulness are illuminated and encouraged by the discipline of backcountry wandering, and of how the wilderness itself becomes a way of knowing-an ecology of the soul.

Im Jahr 2011 gewann Novak Djokovic 10 Titel, 3 Grand Slams und 43 aufeinanderfolgende Matches und spielte damit die erfolgreichste Saison, die jemals im Tennis absolviert wurde. Aber wie konnte ein Sportler, der zuvor von Atemproblemen und Verletzungen geplagt wurde, plötzlich die Nummer 1 der Weltrangliste werden? Die Antwort ist verblüffend: Er stellte seine Ernährung um. In Siegernahrungbeschreibt Djokovic, wie er den Bombenangriff auf seine Heimatstadt Belgrad überlebte und von einem der Kriegs-Kinder zum Tennisstar wurde. Im Fokus dieses Ratgebers steht jedoch die Diät, die ihn aus der Mittelklasse an die absolute Spitze katapultierte: Djokovic liebte Brot und Pasta, vor allem aber die Pizza aus dem Restaurant seiner Familie unwissend, dass sein Körper Bestandteile des Weizens nicht verarbeiten kann. Erst als er anfing, auf glutenhaltige Nahrung zu verzichten, konnte er sich gleich zwei Kindheitsträume erfüllen: den Wimbledon-Sieg und die Position 1 in der Tennis-Weltrangliste. Dieses Buch verhilft dem Leser mit Wochen-Menüs, Ernährungstips und einfachen Rezepten durch glutenfreie Ernährung zu einem besseren Lebensgefühl.
