The Life of Voices illustrates how human voices have special significance as the place where mind and body collaborate to produce everyday speech. Hannah Rockwell links Russian semiotician Mikhail Bakhtin’s philosophy of dialogue with French phenomenologist Maurice Merleau-Ponty’s views of the relation between bodies and speech expression to develop a unique theory of communication and bodies. By introducing readers to actual human subjects speaking about how their identities have been shaped and transformed through time, the author explores how discourses reproduce ideology and social power relations. Readers are challenged to consider complex influences between human subjects and institutionalized discourses through critical-interpretive analyses of transcribed speech. The Life of Voices has an interdisciplinary flair grounded in careful research. Scholars in communication, sociology, philosophy, psychology, linguistics, anthropology, gender studies and identity politics will find valuable insights, methods and examples in this work. It is essential reading for anyone who is interested in discourse studies and the body’s relationship to speech or human identity formation.

Connecting to our inner lives can foster healing, self-development and self-awareness. This unique book looks in depth at ten major contemporary psychotherapeutic approaches which all use inner dialogue as a way of developing both professionally and personally. Each chapter is written by an expert in their field, some of whom were chosen to contribute by the founder of the approach. The authors include personal stories of how they have used the approach in their own lives and work as therapists, giving a deeper insight into each method. As well as developing a connection to the mind, several of the approaches focus on deepening an awareness of the body and listening to its voice. Approaches covered include the Jungian approach, Gestalt therapy, Focusing, internal family systems therapy, and Hakomi. Drawing on both Eastern and Western traditions and methods, this fascinating book will be of interest to psychotherapists, counsellors and students, as well as anyone with an interest in inner dialogue, healing and personal development.

Life, especially the examined life, is always a dialogue whether this is between two persons or between a person and his conscience. It always involves a question and answer, two feet carrying a person on the seashore of life in search of meaning. The book is about a dialogue of two friends, Mel and Ma-isha who started their dialogue by the seashore with a recognition that many people get waylaid in life not so much in the big issues of life which great minds have reflected on but in the ordinary things like eating and drinking, bathing, working, and living with others. And yes, religion! Because they are so common, the ordinary things in life are taken so routinely and for granted that in the process the extraordinary in them is lost. The baby is thrown with the bath water! Mel and Ma-isha, having just gone out of school, engaged in a dialogue not so much to have a final say on the subjects that they discussed but to lead the yearnings in the hearts of people caught in the spreading desert of life to the extraordinary which is a shimmering oasis in the midst of the ordinary for the tired travelers of life to have their fill. They do not need to look beyond the stars to quench their thirst for life. All they have to do is to open their hearts and minds to the extraordinary in the ordinary things in life. The divine is closer to our hearts than we often think!

No matter how much is learned, if that learning remains in our heads, it is not enough. Unless learning touches our hearts, it's never going to bring us the wisdom we seek, the peace we desire, or the intimacy and connection for which we yearn.A new and more receptive way of knowing is needed, and is found in this course for the heart.“The Dialogues of A Course of Love” is the third volume in this three-book Course of Love series. In this culmination, dialogue becomes the new way of knowing. “As you engage in dialogue…your ability to embrace all while focusing on your own purpose will begin a new process of individuation. You are now ready to reclaim your Self.” Each way and each person is needed.“There is no other time. There is no “higher” self waiting to do what only you can do.” In “The Dialogues of A Course of Love,” you will find the most sweeping changes, and the most personal, and emphatic call back to self. The Dialogues begin with sections on Acceptance, Discovery, and Being, after which you are invited to ascend to the mountain with Jesus for Forty Days and Forty Nights. Here you are an equal, sharing in companionship and dialogue as you prepare to return from the mountain as a new self. This is completion and integration of what is gained in this work that leads beyond the ego to a life of meaning and purpose.
