SAKE & SATORI: An excerpt from ASIAN JOURNALS by Joseph Campbell
By Publicity Admin

At the beginning of his career, Joseph Campbell developed a lasting fascination with the cultures of the Far East, and explorations of Buddhist and Hindu philosophy later became recurring motifs in his vast body of work. However, Campbell had to wait until middle age to visit the lands that inspired him so deeply. In 1954, he took a sabbatical from his teaching position and embarked on a yearlong voyage through India, Thailand, Cambodia, Burma, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and finally Japan. Asian Journals combines the two hardcover editions of Campbell’s journals, Baksheesh & Brahman and Sake & Satori, into one paperback volume, an edited day-to-day travel diary of the people he met and the historical places he visited on his trek through Asia. Along the way, he enlivens the narrative with his musings on culture, religion, myth, and politics, describing both the trivial and the sublime. As always, Campbell’s keen intellect and boundless curiosity shine through in his lucid prose. From these pages, Campbell enthusiasts will come away with a deeper understanding of the man, his work, and his enduring legacy.

By Publicity Admin

What happens when you fully commit yourself to love? Endless good, says author and social media sensation Scott Stabile, who came to that conclusion by overcoming plenty of bad. Scott’s parents were murdered when he was fourteen. Nine years later, his brother died of a heroin overdose. Soon after that, he joined a cult that dominated his life for thirteen years before he summoned the courage to walk away. In this inspiring conversation with host Kim Corbin about his memoir, Big Love: The Power of Living with a Wide-Open Heart, Scott relates how, through it all, he has become evermore committed to living a life of love, while encouraging each of us to do the same.

FIVE WAYS TO SUPPORT BALANCE & FLOW THIS SCHOOL YEAR by Renée Peterson Trudeau, author of NURTURING THE SOUL OF YOUR FAMILY
By Publicity Admin

Last night we were shopping for school supplies with my fifteen-year-old and talking about whether he’ll be able to work as a lifeguard all year, what colleges he might like to visit during our Thanksgiving trip to California, and if he wants to continue playing in the high school jazz band. I could feel my chest start to tighten as we envisioned the very full year ahead of us, and we all paused in the school supply aisle and took a deep breath. 

Growing up with a parent who suffered from clinical depression and navigating a heaping dose of dysfunction, stress, anxiety, and “not feeling enough” the first thirty years of my life have left me highly motivated to want to feel good.

COPING WITH STRONG, SUDDEN EMOTIONS: An excerpt from MASTERING THE ADDICTED BRAIN by Walter Ling, MD

An internationally renowned psychiatrist, neurologist, and addiction specialist, author Dr. Walter Ling has worked with thousands of addicts, their loved ones, and fellow clinicians. His no-nonsense, no-judgment approach, which he calls the “neuroscience of common sense,” advocates holistic methods to prevent relapse and establish new patterns to create a sustainable, meaningful life.

NEW WORLD NOW PODCAST, Episode 20: RECLAIMING YOUR BODY with Suzanne Scurlock-Durana
By Publicity Admin
While the English language has plenty of idioms to refer to what our bodies know, such as “gut feelings” or our hearts “reaching out” to others, many of us have learned to ignore, deny, or even mistrust our body’s inherent wisdom. In this inspiring conversation, Suzanne Scurlock-Durana, author of Reclaiming Your Body: Healing from Trauma and Awakening to Your Body’s Wisdom, explains how stress and trauma can cut us off from our body’s built-in guidance system. She also provides practical tools and guidance for connecting with key wisdom areas of the body, including the heart, gut, and pelvis, so that we can use them to better navigate our lives.

WITCH TO WITCH by New World Library Associate Publicist Tristy Taylor, with an excerpt from WOMAN MOST WILD by Danielle Dulsky
By Publicity Admin

When I found out I would be working with Danielle Dulsky to promote her book Woman Most Wild: Three Keys to Liberating the Witch Within, I was over the moon. It was the perfect match for me. Not only am I a longtime practicing Witch myself, but I am also dedicated to empowering women to own their power and live the best lives they can, creatively and spiritually. The work of Danielle Dulsky, who is also an artist, yoga teacher, and energy worker, reflects a similar life path. She leads women’s circles, Witchcraft workshops, and energy healing trainings and regularly speaks about how everyone — female, male, or beyond the gender binary — can find a unique feminine spirituality and welcome that spirituality into daily life.
