Light Warriors

Author: Joyce Tenneson
Publisher: Bulfinch
ISBN: 0821226983
Release Date: 2000-11-15
Genre: Photography

A series of dramatic, up-close portraits of women, all taken with Polaroid's remarkable 20 x 24-inch camera. These striking images are reminiscent of Tenneson's earlier work (Transformations and Illuminations) in their haunting, dreamlike qualities. However, these striking portraits of the female figure, often partially nude, draped in fabric, with unusual headdresses or objects in their arms, illuminated by eerie light, are unforgettable and a bold departure from her earlier work. A must for Tenneson's loyal fans -- the photographic, feminist, and spiritual market -- and also for a more general audience, capitalizing on her increasing visibility in the fashion field.

Courage

Author: Osho
Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin
ISBN: 1429991992
Release Date: 2011-04-01
Genre: Body, Mind & Spirit

Discover your ability to be brave in times of adversity with Courage: The Joy of Living Dangerously—from one of the greatest spiritual teachers of the twentieth century. Courage is not the absence of fear, says Osho. It is, rather, the total presence of fear, with the courage to face it. This book provides a bird’s-eye view of the whole terrain—where fears originate, how to understand them, and how to call on your inner strength to confront them. In the process, Osho proposes that whenever we are faced with uncertainty and change in our lives, it is actually a cause for celebration. Instead of trying to hang on to the familiar and the known, we can learn to enjoy these situations as opportunities for adventure and for deepening our understanding of ourselves and the world around us. Having courage is more than just heroic acts in exceptional circumstances. It’s a necessity to lead authentic and fulfilling lives on a day-to-day basis. This is the courage to change when change is needed, the courage to stand up for our own truth, even against the opinions of others, and the courage to embrace the unknown in spite of our fears—in our relationships, in our careers, or in the ongoing journey of understanding who we are and why we are here. Courage also features meditation techniques specifically designed by Osho to help people cope with their fears. Osho challenges readers to examine and break free of the conditioned belief systems and prejudices that limit their capacity to enjoy life in all its richness. He has been described by the Sunday Times of London as one of the “1000 Makers of the 20th Century” and by Sunday Mid-Day (India) as one of the ten people—along with Gandhi, Nehru, and Buddha—who have changed the destiny of India. Since his death in 1990, the influence of his teachings continues to expand, reaching seekers of all ages in virtually every country of the world.

A Tale of Two Biddies

Author: Vicki Kuyper
Publisher: BroadStreet Publishing Group LLC
ISBN: 9781424550531
Release Date: 2015-08-01
Genre: Religion

Aging is a gift—a privilege best enjoyed with open arms and a grateful heart. Meet Kitty and Mardel, also affectionately known as St. Katherine and the Dragon Lady. Through a good dose of humor and some hard-earned insight, A Tale of Two Biddies tells the entertaining story of the two women who inspired this book. One was kind, tender-hearted, and humble; the other was critical, pessimistic, self-centered, and sharp-tongued. As these women aged and their inhibitions fell away, the true character of their hearts became increasingly evident to those around them. For better and for worse. In this book Vicki Kuyper explores the issues women face as they age and encourages them to make the most of the latter seasons of their lives. We can’t control the aging process, but we can choose how we’ll face each day, ultimately shaping our hearts and who we become. We grow old in the blink of an eye. Growing up takes considerably longer. That means there’s no better time than right now to reevaluate our habits, our faith, and our future. We can choose what draws us closer to God and closer to being the amazing women God created us to be. That’s life at its finest.
