NEITHER WOLF NOR DOG HITS THE BIG SCREEN by New World Library Associate Publicist Tristy Taylor with an excerpt from the book by Kent Nerburn
By Publicity Admin

Twenty-three years after its original publication, the popular New World Library book Neither Wolf nor Dog: On Forgotten Roads with an Indian Elder, by acclaimed author Kent Nerburn, has been adapted into a feature film. Thanks to the Museum of the American Indian and the Marin Community Foundation, a screening of this Steven Lewis Simpson–directed film recently took place in San Rafael, California. 

Nerburn also cowrote the screenplay (with Simpson), and the main character, played by the talented actor Christopher Sweeney, is based on him. After seeing the final cut, Nerburn said, “The film, in both its choices that reflect the book and its choices that go outside the book, is always and uncompromisingly respectful and accurate in its depiction of Native people and life. To my mind, there is not one false note in the portrayal of Native reality.”

TIME FLIES WHEN YOU’RE HAVING FUN: New World Library Publisher and Cofounder Marc Allen on 40 Years in Publishing
By Publicity Admin
I can’t believe it. We’re celebrating forty years of publishing at New World Library. And it was all something I just stumbled into. Or maybe I was guided into it by forces far beyond me — who knows?

In my twenties, I spent most of my time in what we called the “spiritual smorgasbord” of the San Francisco Bay Area. When I was twenty-eight — in 1974 — I met a young woman named Shakti Gawain. She was two years younger and had just spent a year in India. We went to a weekend workshop led by a man named Ken Keyes, Jr., based on his book Handbook to Higher Consciousness. It was an incredible experience, and Shakti and I became close heart friends and partners.

THE WISDOM OF THE HEART: An excerpt from RECLAIMING YOUR BODY by Suzanne Scurlock-Durana
By Publicity Admin

While the English language frequently refers to what our bodies know — “gut feelings,” hearts “reaching out” to others, etc. — many of us have learned to ignore, deny, or even mistrust our body’s inherent wisdom. Even worse, a lot of people don’t like their bodies very much at all. 

As a result, we often cut ourselves off from one of our greatest allies. In Reclaiming Your Body: Healing from Trauma and Awakening to Your Body’s Wisdom, author Suzanne Scurlock-Durana provides the tools and guidance necessary to reconnect with our body’s inner guidance system of sensation, imagery, and inner knowing. Her book includes chapters for each main “wisdom area” of the body — the heart, gut, pelvis, legs and feet, bones, and brain — and explores each area’s unique roles in the process of developing full-body presence.
