<p>In this searing memoir of survival in the spirit of <em>Stolen Innocence</em>, the daughter of Warren Jeffs, the self-proclaimed Prophet of the FLDS Church, takes you deep inside the secretive polygamist Mormon fundamentalist cult run by her family and how she escaped it.</p><p>Born into the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Rachel Jeffs was raised in a strict patriarchal culture defined by subordinate sister wives and men they must obey. No one in this radical splinter sect of the Mormon Church was more powerful or terrifying than its leader Warren Jeffs鈥擱achel鈥檚 father.</p><p>Living outside mainstream Mormonism and federal law, Jeffs arranged marriages between under-age girls and middle-aged and elderly members of his congregation. In 2006, he gained international notoriety when the FBI placed him on its Ten Most Wanted List. Though he is serving a life sentence for child sexual assault, Jeffs鈥?iron grip on the church remains firm, and his edicts to his followers increasingly restrictive and bizarre.</p><p>In <em>Breaking Free</em>, Rachel blows the lid off this taciturn community made famous by Jon Krakauer鈥檚 bestselling <em>Under the Banner of Heaven</em> to offer a harrowing look at her life with Warren Jeffs, and the years of physical and emotional abuse she suffered. Sexually assaulted, compelled into an arranged polygamous marriage, locked away in "houses of hiding" as punishment for perceived transgressions, and physically separated from her children, Rachel, Jeffs鈥?first plural daughter by his second of more than fifty wives, eventually found the courage to leave the church in 2015. But <em>Breaking Free</em> is not only her story鈥擱achel鈥檚 experiences illuminate those of her family and the countless others who remain trapped in the strange world she left behind.</p><p>A shocking and mesmerizing memoir of faith, abuse, courage, and freedom, <em>Breaking Free</em> is an expose of religious extremism and a beacon of hope for anyone trying to overcome personal obstacles.</p>

<b><b><b><b><i>New York Times Book Review</i>聽10 Best Books of 2018</b></b><br /><br />A<i> New York Times </i>Notable Book聽<br /><br />The #1 <i>New York Times</i>聽bestseller.<br /><br />A brilliant and brave investigation聽into the medical and scientific revolution taking place around psychedelic drugs--and the spellbinding story of his own life-changing psychedelic experiences </b></b><br /><br />When Michael Pollan set out to research how LSD and psilocybin (the active ingredient in magic mushrooms) are being used to provide relief to people suffering from difficult-to-treat conditions such as depression, addiction and anxiety, he did not intend to write what is undoubtedly his most personal book. But upon discovering how these remarkable substances are improving the lives not only of the mentally ill but also of healthy people coming to grips with the challenges of everyday life, he decided to explore the landscape of the mind in the first person as well as the third. Thus began a singular adventure into various altered states of consciousness, along with a dive deep into both the latest brain science and the thriving underground community of psychedelic therapists. Pollan sifts the historical record to separate the truth about these mysterious drugs from the myths that have surrounded them since the 1960s, when a handful of psychedelic evangelists inadvertently catalyzed a powerful backlash against what was then a promising field of research.<br /><br />A unique and elegant blend of science, memoir, travel writing, history, and medicine, <i>How to Change Your Mind</i> is a triumph of participatory journalism. By turns dazzling and edifying, it is the gripping account of a journey to an exciting and unexpected new frontier in our understanding of the mind, the self, and our place in the world. The true subject of Pollan's "mental travelogue" is not just psychedelic drugs but also the eternal puzzle of human consciousness and how, in a world that offers us both suffering and joy, we can do our best to be fully present and find meaning in our lives.

Ject is a synthesis of analytic and continental philosophies. Evolution and space-time are analyzed and a richer understanding is achieved. Religion is deconstructed. Humans ascend to their rightful place as the creators of the Gods and Goddesses. Religious cosmologies are diffused and replaced by scientific theories and geometrical paradigms. Ject is a new philosophy. It is ripe and ready for the reader living in this Technolithic Period. Ancient, Medieval, Modern, and Millennial philosophers make cameo appearances throughout the work, rooting it in the fertile tradition of philosophy. Michael J. Buckner nourishes the branches of philosophy and helps it grow into the era of smart technology and globalization.

In September of 2015 the visitors who figured in Whitley Strieber's immortal bestseller Communion returned to his life. A New World details their powerful message: <br /><br />A New World is Coming鈥f We Can Take It.<br /><br />In 2018, the US Navy admitted that videos taken off the carrier Nimitz by pilots using ultra-sophisticated cameras, were of unknown objects with incredible flight characteristics. Add to this the past 70 years of UFO evidence, and it is now undeniable that something unknown is flying around in our skies. But why are they here?<br /><br />There are millions of close encounter witnesses who would say that they are here for us, and have already been in contact with us for two generations, while the official world and the media have been in denial.<br /><br />In 1987, author Whitley Strieber published Communion about his own close encounter. It was met with brutal skepticism...but not from other close encounter witnesses, who wrote him in their hundreds of thousands, telling of their own experiences. As it has been increasingly realized that something real is happening, a great university has archived this precious record.<br /><br />After 33 years of having them in his life, and an entirely new group of encounters starting in 2015, Whitley Strieber returns with a new vision of contact that will shatter all of our previous theories and beliefs and reveal the experience for what it is: the strangest, most powerful and potentially most important thing that has ever happened to mankind.<br /><br />From A New World<br /><br />As science advances, we are finding that the universe is far larger and more complex than we ever imagined, and mysterious beings like our visitors, which we dismissed as imaginary, are turning out to be real. This is calling to all of us to find a new life鈥攁 new world鈥攊n which they play a part.<br />As we are coming to realize that they are real and here, we also find ourselves asking the question that Col. Philip Corso asked so long ago when he found himself facing them: 鈥淲hat鈥檚 in it for us?鈥?lt;br />They want to join us. They need us, but more, we need them鈥攖heir wisdom and their insight into the peril of our world and how to ensure our future.<br />Dare we open our door to them?<br /><br />Praise for A New World<br /><br />鈥淲hitley Strieber鈥檚 magical books about his encounters with the uncanny have captured my imagination since childhood. A New World find the master in top form, from a stirring and ultra high strangeness experience at Wounded Knee to grand speculations about consciousness, communion and the future of humanity. A fascinating, mysterious book.鈥?lt;br /> <br /> --Josh Boone, director of The Fault in Our Stars<br /><br />鈥淢r. Strieber writes with the precious sanity of an intuitive savant. In describing so clearly true experiences that baffle most of us, he opens our minds to accept with grace meanings we need to learn are very real.鈥?lt;br /> <br /> --Christopher Green, MD, PhD<br /><br />鈥淧rovocative and riveting. I couldn鈥檛 put it down. Strieber confronts the mystery of close encounter with fresh insight and depth, wrapping up his years of interaction with the phenomenon he calls 鈥渢he visitors.鈥?Now there is more urgency for contact than ever before, and this book explains how that might happen.鈥?lt;br /><br /> --Leslie Kean, Investigative Reporter and Author of Surviving Death, a Journalist Investigates Evidence for an Afterlife<br /><br />鈥淚 entered Whitley Strieber鈥檚 New World and couldn鈥檛 put it down. Humankind has always wondered what extraterrestrial life would look like, be like, act like. The 鈥渧isitors鈥?of A New World are unlike anything we have conceived, in other words, they are truly alien. Enter this risky new world and leave warned鈥nd empowered.鈥?lt;br /><br /> --Diana Walsh Pasulka, Chair, Department of Philosophy and Religion, University of North Carolina, Wilmington, author of American Cosmic<br /><br />

<p><b>Best Health Book</b>聽<b>of 2018聽</b>- American Book Fest.<br /><b>Best Science Books of 2018</b> - Bookbub.</p><p>Every creation begins as a thought, from a symphony to a marriage to an ice cream cone to a rocket launch. When we have an intention, a complex chain of events begins in our brains. Thoughts travel as electrical impulses along neural pathways. When neurons fire together they wire together, creating electromagnetic fields. These fields are invisible energy, yet they influence the molecules of matter around us the way a magnet organizes iron filings.</p><p>In <i>Mind to Matter</i>, award-winning researcher Dawson Church explains the science showing how our minds create matter. Different intentions produce different fields and different material creations. The thoughts and energy fields we cultivate in our minds condition the atoms and molecules around us. We can now trace the science behind each link in chain from thought to thing, showing the surprising ways in which our intentions create the material world.聽</p><p>The science in the book is illustrated by many authentic case histories of people who harnessed the extraordinary power of the mind to create. They include:</p><p>鈥?Adeline, whose Stage 4 cancer disappeared after she imagined "healing stars" <br />鈥?Raymond Aaron and two of his clients, each of whom manifested $1 million in the same week<br /> 鈥?Elon Musk, who bounced back from devastating tragedy to found Tesla and SpaceX <br />鈥?Graham Phillips, who grew the emotional regulation part of his brain by 22.8% in two months <br />鈥?Jennifer Graf, whose grandfather鈥檚 long-dead radio came to life to play love songs the day of her wedding <br />鈥?Harold, whose 80% hearing loss reversed in an hour <br />鈥?Joe Marana, whose deceased sister comforted him from beyond the grave <br />鈥?Rick Geggie, whose clogged arteries cleared up the night before cardiac surgery <br />鈥?Matthias Rust, a teen whose "airplane flight for peace" changed the fate of superpowers <br />鈥?Wanda Burch, whose dream about cancer told the surgeon exactly where to look for it <br />鈥?An MIT freshman student who can precipitate sodium crystals with his mind <br />鈥?John, who found himself floating out of his body and returned to find his AIDS healed <br />鈥?Dean, whose cortisol levels dropped by 48% in a single hour</p><p>In <i>Mind to Matter</i>, Dawson Church shows that these outcomes aren鈥檛 a lucky accident only a few people experience. Neuroscientists have measured a specific brain wave formula that is linked to manifestation. This "flow state" can be learned and applied by anyone. New discoveries in epigenetics, neuroscience, electromagnetism, psychology, vibration, and quantum physics connect each step in the process by which mind creates matter. They show that the whole universe is self-organizing, and when our minds are in a state of flow, they coordinate with nature's emergent intelligence to produce synchronous outcomes. The book contained over 150 photos and illustrations that explain the process, while an "Extended Play" section at the end of each chapter provides additional resources. As <i>Mind to Matter</i> drops each piece of the scientific puzzle into place, it leaves us with a profound understanding of the enormous creative potential of our minds. It also gives us a road map to cultivating these remarkable brain states in our daily lives.</p>
