Change Your Brain Change Your Life

(The Breakthrough program for Conquering Anxiety, Depression, Obsessiveness, Anger, and Impulsiveness)

By Daniel G. Amen, MD

From Intro:

Your brain is the hardware of your soul. It is the hardware of your very essence as a human being,. You cannot be who you really want to be unless your brain works right. How your brain works determines how happy you are, how effective you feel, and how well you interact with others. Your brain patterns help you (or hurt you) with your marriage, parenting skills, work, and religious beliefs, along with your experiences of pleasure and pain. If you are anxious, depressed, obsessive-compulsive, prone to anger, or easily distracted, you probably believe these problems are ‘all in your head.” In other words, you believe your problem is purely psychological. However, research that I and others have done shows that the problems are related to the physiology of the brain - and the good news is that we have proof that you can change that physiology. You can fix what’s wrong for many problems.

From back of book:

In this breakthrough bestseller, you’ll see scientific evidence that your anxiety, depression, anger, obsessiveness, or impulsiveness could be related to how specific structure in your brain work. You’re not stuck with the brain you’re born with. Here are just a few of neuropsychiatrist Dr. Daniel Amen’s surprising – and effective – “brain prescriptions’ that can help heal your brain and change your life;

To Quell Anxiety and Panic: Use simple breathing techniques to immediately calm inner turmoil

To Fight Depression: Learn how to kill ANTs (automatic negative thoughts)

To Curb Anger: Follow the Amen anti-anger diet and learn the nutrients that calm rage

To Conquer impulsiveness and learn to Focus: Develop total focus with the “One-Page Miracle”

To Stop Obsessive Worrying: Follow the “get unstuck’ writing exercise and learn other problem-solving exercises

Divine Farmer's Materia Medica

A Translation of the Shen Nong Ben Cao Jing by Yang Shou-zhong

The Shen Nong Ben Cao Jing (The Divine Farmer’s materia Medica Classic) is one of the three foundation books of Chinese medicine. The Nei Jing (Inner Classic) established the theoretical foundations of Chinese medicine and especially acupuncture and moxibustion. The Shen Nong Ben Cao Jing laid the foundation for the study of Chinese medicinals. While the Shang Han Lun/Jin Gui Yao Lue (Treatise on Damage (Due to) Cold/Essentials of the Golden Cabinet) is the locus classicus for Chinese formulas and prescriptions and treatment based on pattern discrimination. Translation of the Nei Jing and Shang Han Lun/Jin Gui Yao Lue have long existed in English. However, until now, no translation of the Shen Nong Ben Cao Jing has been available in English.

This is the materia medica from which all others have been derived. If you have any interest in the historical roots of Chinese medicine and in particular, the Taoist contribution to Chinese medicine, you must own a copy of this preeminent classic.

Earth: The Sequel

The Race to Reinvent Energy and Stop Global Warming

How to Harness the Great Forces of Capitalism to Save the World from Catastrophe

By Fred Krupp & Miriam Horn

The forecasts are grim and time is running out, but that’s not the end of the story. In this book, Fred Krupp, longtime president of Environmental Defense Fund, brings a stirring and hopeful call to arms; We can solve global warming. And in doing so, we will build the new industries, jobs, and fortunes of the twenty-first century.

In these pages, the reader will encounter the bold innovators and investors who are reinventing energy and the ways we use it. Among them; a frontier impresario who keeps his ice hotel frozen all summer long with the energy of hot springs; a utility engineer who feeds smokestack gases from coal-fired plants to voracious algae, then turns them into fuel; and a tribe of native Americans, for two thousand years fishermen in the roughest Pacific waters, who are now harvesting the fierce power of the waves themselves.

These entrepreneurs are poised to remake the worlds’ biggest business and save the planet if America’s political leaders give them a fair chance to compete.

Reviews: “Krupp and Horn have delivered an important message of hope; that alternative energy is abundant, we have the genius to tap it, and there is no need to continue wrecking the world by dependence on fossil fuels.” E.O.Wilson – Harvard

“Earth: The sequel tells how innovators in technology and policy can win the race of our lives. Read this book (and recycle all the others)!”John Doerr

“….makes it crystal clear that we can build a low-carbon economy while unleashing American entrepreneurs to save the planet, putting optimism back into the environmental story.” Michael Bloomberg

Energy Balance Through Tao

Exercises for Cultivating Yin Energy

By Mantak Chia

In the Western worlds, exercise focuses mainly on physical fitness and developing muscular strength. In the east, exercise systems balance the body, mind, and spirit. This balance is strongly emphasized in the Taoist system of Tao Yin, one of the oldest and most diverse forms of exercise in China. Tao yin focuses on creating balance between internal and external energies and revitalizing the body, mind, and spirit with a combination of strength, flexibility, and internal energy exercises. Its ultimate goal is for the practitioner to become pure, responsive, and full of energy, like a child.

In Energy Balance through the Tao Master Mantak Chia introduces 45 fully illustrated Tao Yin exercises to Western readers. He explains the history behind the practice and its connections to other complementary Chinese exercise forms, such as Tai Chi. This book focuses on the lying and sitting positions of Tao Yin, which improve health and structural alignment and, once mastered, strengthen movements and postures in standing positions. The benefits of these remarkably simple exercises include harmonizing chi, developing strength and flexibility through tendon stretching, relaxing the abdominal muscles and the diaphragm, releasing toxins through the breath, and training the ‘second brain’ in the lower abdomen to coordinate and direct these processes.

Radiant Health: The Ancient Wisdom of the Chinese Tonic Herb

By Ron Teeguarden

The art of radiant health has been widely practiced for thousands of years by the people of the East. In China, you will find that this healthcare art has permeated into almost every corner of life. Tonic teas, foods, and wine are familiar to and appreciated by all the people of the East. But Westerners may find them mysterious, inconceivable and somehow ridiculous. Now Ron Teeguarden’s book provides a powerful glass through which you in the West can easily spy on the secrets of the Chinese healthcare arts.

The classical Chinese philosophies and theories on nature and the human body may be the biggest obstacle for Westerners to learning and practicing a program for radiant health. With his profound knowledge about Chinese civilization, the author of this book has successfully kicked the big stone away and can therefore lead the readers smoothly in to the great palace of Chinese radiant health.

The art of radiant health was created and developed by the Chinese people. But it belongs to all human beings. We wish that these classical Chinese arts will be better recognized and used by all the people of the world, so as to improve both our health and our life.

The Liver

By Claude Larre & Elisabeth Rochat De la Vallee

The liver is a powerful and dynamic organ, wide-ranging in its effects on both the free flow of qi and the storing and releasing of blood, connected with both motion and emotion, and the outward expression of our innate potential. The transition from the normal functioning of the liver to its pathology is graphic: obstruction, blockage, fire and wind replace the smooth harmony of budding growth. We hope to bridge the gap that is sometimes apparent between the theoretical aspects of philosophy and the practical work of clinical pathology.

The Prophet's Way

A Guide to Living in the Now

By Thom Hartmann

In the course of his work for the charitable organization Salem, Thom Hartmann personally witnessed famine in Uganda, chaos in Russia, and genocide in Colombia – all signs that modern cultures have lost the connection to the sacred, both within and without, that was emblematic of older cultures. To truly flourish, the human spirit needs to be present in its surroundings and attuned to the Now. It needs to act on what it knows is possible and to experience how the smallest actions can have massive consequences. This is the reality of the Prophet’s Way, a path - both literal and figurative – that the author walked with his spiritual mentor Herr Muller that skirts the edge of the precipice, where one can experience a truly spontaneous life under seemingly over-whelming and impossible circumstances.

In The Prophet’s Way, Thom Hartmann shares his intense spiritual journey, a story that melds recent discoveries in science with ancient truths. Through insightful and engaging vignettes Hartmann teaches that accepting the challenge to have faith means living on the edge - remaining in the moment - because it is here that the material and spiritual worlds meet. He offers readers a unique view into his experiences of expanded consciousness, providing a powerful example of how we can re-create our future by reconnecting to the sacred heartbeat of the world.

For over 2,500 years, the words of the Tao Te Ching, the primary scripture of Laoism and Taoism, have been regarded as among the greatest treasures of the world. Lao Tzu, whose name means “the ancient child,” wrote these essential verses that have both confounded and conferred blessings on humankind.

Now, Taoist masters Mantak Chia and Tao Huang, guide readers through the origins of this philosophy, the meaning behind its 5,000 pictographs, and the way of living that generations have followed.

While the text of the Tao Te Ching has been passed down in literary form for generations, the essence of the text can be understood only through heart awakening – a true integration of body and mind – made possible with the insights and exercise in this book. The authors analyze Lao Tzu’s teachings, line by line, and offer mediations, interpretation, and energy cultivation practices that illuminate the true meaning of this classic text.

Walking Your Blues Away

By Thom Hartmann

Our bodies usually heal rapidly from an illness, injury, or wound. Yet our minds and hearts often suffer for years with debilitating symptoms of distress or upset. Why is it so hard for our minds and hearts to heal? One simple key to healing them can be just a short walk away.

Walking – a bilateral therapy that has been a part of human life throughout history – allows people to heal emotionally as quickly as they do physically. Normally the brain converts our daily experiences into long-term memories. However, a traumatic experience can become “stuck” in the brain, unable to be stores as “memory” and persisting in the brain as if it were still a present-time event. Thom Hartmann explains that when we walk, which engages both sides of the body, we simultaneously activate both the left and right sides of the brain. This allows the brain’s two hemispheres to join forces to break up brain pattering and allow the sufferer to release these distresses – from extreme but brief upsets to chronic conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder and depression.

To achieve these results, Hartmann shows how we must learn to walk consciously, holding an awareness of the distress (or desire we hope to attain) in mind as we move. Using a variety of case studies, he demonstrates that it is possible to dissolve the rigidity of a traumatic memory or negative mind state in as little as a half-hours’ time. His techniques have proven successful in helping to alleviate rage resulting from a domestic dispute as well as the chronic traumas soldiers experience during war that are often locked away for decades. While the physical benefits of walking have long been recognized, its importance in promoting and maintaining mental health has only recently been rediscovered. Hartmann’s deceptively simple, yet potent exercises allow us to create our own walking journeys to restore our mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being as well as rejuvenate our body’s health.
