Bestselling Taoist author William Martin brings the power of the Tao to the essential practice of forgiveness, creating a unique path from guilt, blame, and shame to peace of mind and freedom. How do we forgive when forgiveness seems impossible? William Martin, author of the bestselling The Parent's Tao Te Ching, provides practical and time honored answers. He weaves excerpts from the ancient sacred Taoist scriptures together with insightful teaching stories, bringing the practice of forgiveness to readers of all spiritual backgrounds. Each chapter contains two parts-a journey toward forgiveness and a practical exercise in forgiving-and also includes personal anecdotes, poems, and simple exercises. With the devastating personal and societal damage caused by resentment, anger, guilt, and shame in mind, Martin patiently and compassionately helps readers overcome the ills of "holding on" with the openness of the Tao. In this accessible work, he illustrates how forgiveness is freedom and that the pathway to overcoming anger is also the way to spiritual liberation.

Merciful Judgments and Contemporary Society: Legal Problems, Legal Possibilities explores the tension between law's need for and dependence on merciful judgments and suspicions that regularly accompany them. Rather than focusing primarily on definitional questions or the longstanding debate about the moral worth and importance of mercy, this book focuses on mercy as a part of, and problem for, law. This book is a product of the University of Alabama School of Law symposia series on 'Law, Knowledge and Imagination'. It explores the ways law is known and imagined in a diverse array of disciplines, including political science, history, cultural studies, philosophy and science. In addition, books produced through the Alabama symposia explore various conjunctions of law, knowledge and imagination as they play out in debates about theory and policy and speak to venerable questions as well as contemporary issues.

Most of us have plenty of experience with self-blame and guilt - but we are often at a loss when it comes to forgiving ourselves. According to Colin Tipping, this is because our idea of forgiveness usually requires a victim and a perpetrator - which is impossible when we play both roles at the same time. Tipping's Radical Forgiveness process allows us to navigate this dilemma for deep and lasting healing. To help us gain freedom from excessive inner criticism and self-sabotaging beliefs, he offers the Radical Self-Forgiveness book and companion audio program. Join Colin Tipping to learn his step-by-step methods for going beyond the level of self-judgment and recrimination to the deeper spiritual state in which true forgiveness occurs. What's ''radical'' about Colin Tipping's approach to forgiveness? ''It's not about telling ourselves a new story about something that happened,''he says. ''It's about creating a profound shift at the spiritual level."""" Based on his world-renowned forgiveness workshops, the Radical Self-Forgiveness book shares clear insights for resolving our deepest internal wounds using Tipping's five-stage forgiveness process. The Radical Self-Forgiveness audio edition offers a toolbox of exercises, techniques, and guided practices designed to help us break the cycle of blame and victimhood - an empowering attitude that helps us fully embrace every experience. Many of our fears, anxieties, and even physical health problems originate from the parts of us that we consider unforgiveable. Yet when we recognize that we are worthy of forgiveness - no matter who we are or what we have done - we gain access to the loving energy of Spirit that can heal our deepest wounds. Used alone or in combination for an integrated practice, the Radical Self-Forgiveness book and audio program open the doorway to the freedom and inner peace that come from true self-acceptance.

The past few decades have seen remarkable technological growth in the delivery of modern medicine. Pharmaceutical, diagnostic, and surgical interventions have transformed the way in which health is perceived and medicine is practiced. The modern patient has become so dependent upon these therapies and interventions that they take a passive interest in their health. For author Dr. Mark W. Hatcher, this is a symptom of a culture in crisis—doctors treat disease instead of fostering health. Using real-life examples from a busy emergency room, he investigates this health-care crisis and reevaluates what it means to be healthy. In Beyond Desire: Rediscovering Health and Wellness, Hatcher examines the assumptions upon which the modern medical world is founded, explores the healing methods that have been practiced for centuries by healers around the world, and proposes a strategy for health that focuses on the importance of the mind and spirit in achieving and maintaining health. Beyond Desire shows how the practices of meditation, yoga, tai chi, acupuncture, proper eating, and selfless service are the true pathways to healing and rediscovering health and wellness.

«Ich bin zu dick. Keiner liebt mich. Ich bin ein Versager.» Jeder Tag im Leben wird zur Qual, wenn man so wenig von sich hält. Hier liegt unser eigentlicher «wunder Punkt». Wir haben nur unzureichend gelernt, selbst für uns die Verantwortung zu übernehmen. Allzu leicht lassen wir unsere Umgebung bestimmen, was für uns gut und richtig ist, übernehmen Normen und Verhaltensweisen, an denen wir uns ängstlich ausrichten. Und hier setzt auch die «Therapie» von Dr. Dyer ein. In seinen zwölf «Beratungsstunden» erfahren wir viel über uns selbst. Er nimmt uns schrittweise und behutsam unsere Angst, uns auf uns selbst einzulassen, uns mit unseren Schwächen und Stärken zu akzeptieren. Wir begreifen am Ende seiner Behandlung, wie befreiend es für uns – und unsere Mitmenschen – sein kann, wenn wir selbst gelassen die Verantwortung für unsere individuelle Person übernehmen können.

Das Drama des begabten Kindes und die Suche nach dem wahren Selbst

Gemeinsame Leitthemen der in diesem Band enthaltenen drei Studien sind die Ursprünge des Selbstverlustes und Wege der Selbstfindung. Das Drama des begabten, das heißt sensiblen, wachen Kindes besteht darin, daß es schon früh Bedürfnisse seiner Eltern spürt und sich ihnen anpaßt, indem es lernt, seine intensivsten, aber unerwünschten Gefühle nicht zu fühlen. Obwohl diese "verpönten" Gefühle später nicht immer vermieden werden können, bleiben sie doch abgespalten, das heißt: Der vitalste Teil des wahren Selbst wird nicht in die Persönlichkeit integriert. Das führt zu emotionaler Verunsicherung und Verarmung (Selbstverlust), die sich in der Depression ausdrücken oder aber in der Grandiosität abgewehrt werden. Die angeführten Beispiele sensibilisieren für das nicht artikulierte, hinter Idealisierungen verborgene Leiden des Kindes wie auch für die Tragik der nicht verfügbaren Eltern, die einst selbst verfügbare Kinder gewesen sind.
