Archetypes: Who Are You?
By Caroline Myss
Have you ever wondered
why you are drawn to
certain people, ideas or
products and turned off by
others? Are you constantly
searching for something you
can’t put your finger on, or
wondering whether you are
living a life that truly fits?
In Archetypes: Who Are
You?, best-selling author
Caroline Myss delves into the
world of archetypes, which have
been the subject of her work for
more than 25 years. Archetypes are universal patterns
of behavior that, once discovered, help you better
understand yourself and your place in the world.
In short, knowing your archetypes can transform your life. Within the pages of this book, Myss writes about 10 primary archetypes that have emerged in today’s society: The Caregiver, the Artist/Creative, the Fashionista, the Intellectual, the Rebel, the Queen/Executive, the Advocate, the Visionary, the Athlete and the Spiritual Seeker. In each chapter, she explains one individual archetype, showing how it has evolved and then, in fascinating detail, lays out the unique characteristics, the defining graces, the life challenges and other information to help you understand if you are part of this archetype family and, if so, how you can fully tap into its power. She also offers tips and practical advice on how to fully engage with your archetypes.
Learning what archetypes best describe you is just the beginning. You can then use this knowledge to make more conscious decisions about everything from careers to relationships, avoiding common pitfalls of your personality type while playing up your strengths. The result is a happier, more authentic you. It’s never too late to change your life by embracing your archetypes to the fullest. So are you a Rebel? An Artist? A Visionary? Join us … and find yourself. ($24.95)
Evolution of the Word: The New Testament in the Order the Books Were Written
By Marcus J. Borg
Everyone knows the New Testament begins with the Gospel of Matthew, but how many know Matthew was actually one of the later books to be written? (It wasn’t even the first Gospel!) But Evolution of the Word is not your typical New Testament. Marcus J. Borg, esteemed Bible scholar and best-selling author, shakes up the order of the New Testament as we know it by putting the books in a completely new order — the order in which they were written. By doing so, this book allows us to read these documents in their historical context.
For the first time, see how the
core ideas of Christianity took
shape and developed over time.
Borg surveys what we know of
the Jewish community by Jesus’ followers who passed on their stories orally. Into this
context emerges the apostle Paul, whose seven authentic
letters become the first collected writings that would
later become the New Testament.
Borg offers helpful introductions for each book so that, as we read through these biblical documents spanning over a century in time, we see afresh what concerns and pressures shaped this movement as it evolved into a new religion. In this groundbreaking format, Borg reveals how a radical and primitive apocalyptic Jewish faith slowly became more comfortable with the world, less Jewish, and more preoccupied with maintaining power and control. Evolution of the Word promises to change forever how we think about this historic work. ($29.99)
The Five Levels of Attachment: Toltec Wisdom for the Modern World
By don Miguel Ruiz, Jr.
How attached are you?
Building on the principles
found in his
father’s best-selling book, The
Four Agreements, don Miguel
Ruiz, Jr. invites us to gauge how
attached we are to our own
point of view. In this book, he
will help you gain awareness of
the agreements you have been
implicitly making all these years
that shape your reality, affect
your future, and show you how
to release the attachments
which no longer reflect who you really are.
This method is 20 years in the making. When don Miguel Ruiz, Jr. began his apprenticeship into his family’s Toltec tradition, he was just 14 years old. His first task was translating his grandmother’s talks from Spanish into English. One day, as he struggled to keep up with her, she asked him, “Are you using knowledge, or is knowledge using you?” Finding the answer to this question would shape the destiny of his life.
In this ground-breaking work, Ruiz explains each of the Five Levels of Attachment in detail, and shows that as our level of attachment to a belief or idea increases, “who we are” becomes directly linked to “what we know.” Our attachment to beliefs — our own and the beliefs of others — manifests as a mask we don’t realize we can take off. But with don Miguel Ruiz’s help, and some Toltec wisdom along the way, we can return to our True, Authentic Selves, unhindered by judgment and free to pursue our true life’s calling. ($18.95)

Energy Healing: The Essentials of Self-Care
By Ann Marie Chiasson, M.D.
Where does true
wellness start? For
thousands of years,
traditional healers have been
able to detect and correct
imbalances at the energetic
level in order to heal our
physical ailments. Today, these
traditions are expanding the
medical understanding of our
subtle anatomy and its role in
our overall well-being.
With Energy Healing, integrative physician Ann Marie Chiasson offers a complete guidebook of easy-to-use energy practices to enhance your health and vitality. Drawing from the material she teaches at Dr. Andrew Weil’s Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine, Dr. Chiasson explores our subtle anatomy: understanding the charkas, meridians, and key principles of energy healing, and self-diagnosis techniques for detecting the movement of energy in our bodies (even if you’ve never sensed energy before). She also provides practices for daily self-care and specific techniques to address energy blocks often seen in common illnesses and health issues, and explains why our energy wanes as we age. Finally, she discusses how we can replenish our vitality from sources in the world around us and, using your body as your teacher, gain insights for adapting and developing your own energy healing techniques.
