In this eagerly awaited follow-up to his international bestsellers Anam Cara and Eternal Echoes, John O'Donohue turns his attention to the subject of beauty - the divine beauty that calls the imagination and awakens all that is noble in the human heart. In these uncertain times of global conflict and crisis, we are riven with anxiety; our trust in the future has lost its innocence, for we know now that anything can happen from one second to the next. In such an unsheltered world, it may sound naive to suggest that this might be the moment to invoke and awaken beauty, yet this is exactly the claim that this book seeks to explore. DIVINE BEAUTY is a gentle but urgent call to awaken. O'Donohue opens our eyes, hearts and minds to the wonder of our own relationship with beauty. Rather than 'covering' this theme, he uncovers it, exposing the infinity and mystery of its breadth. His words return us home to the dignity of silence, the profundity of stillness, the power of thought and perception, and the eternal grace and generosity of beauty's presence. In this masterful and revelatory work, O'Donohue encourages our greater intimacy with beauty, and celebrates it for what it really is: a homecoming of the human spirit. As he focuses on the classical, medieval and Celtic traditions, on art, music, literature, nature and language, O'Donohue reveals how beauty's invisible embrace invites us towards new heights of passion and creativity. DIVINE BEAUTY is an exquisite treasury of Forms of the Beautiful. Its surface employs narrative, image, anecdote and myth, while into the silence of its subtext are sown seeds of reflection that gradually blossom in the heart.

Ideal for graphic designers, illustrators, artists, and clergy alike, this thorough exploration of sacred art transcends the discussion of symbols and aesthetics in order to seek a truly spiritual way of seeing. By drawing a comparison between many different eras of religious iconography—from the illuminators of the Middle Ages to modern-day artwork and advertising pieces—this vital resource encourages creative thinkers from all religious backgrounds to rediscover their work as sacred. Beautiful and abundant illustrations, coupled with passionately written text, challenge the ways in which we view religious artwork and imagery.

What if we began our study of Christian ethics not with an examination of our moral duties but with an exploration of the call of beauty? For like justice, beauty generates a call to a larger, more generous self. God's Beauty offers a fresh, positive approach to moral arguments calling us to work for social justice. It focuses on the calling of divine beauty summoning us to work for justice, protect human rights, overcome alienation and hostility, and be tenders and creators of beauty.

„Einer der bedeutendsten Autoren der amerikanischen Nachkriegsliteratur.“ Paul Ingendaay, F.A.Z. Ralph Ellison ist neben Toni Morrison und James Baldwin eine der großen Stimmen des afroamerikanischen Romans der Gegenwart. Sein Meisterwerk zeugt von künstlerischer Kraft und ist hochaktuell – als schonungslose Abrechnung mit den alltäglichen rassistischen Ideologien und Verhaltensweisen und als Lob auf das gewachsene Selbstbewusstsein der noch immer um ihre selbstverständlichen Rechte Kämpfenden: Der namenlose Ich-Erzähler verliert sein Stipendium, weil er einem Förderer des von Weißen eingerichteten Südstaaten-Colleges für Schwarze nicht die gewünschte Kulisse, sondern die Realität der Farbigen vor Augen führt. Er muss sein Glück dort suchen, wo es Arbeit gibt, und landet in Harlem, einem brodelnden Hexenkessel, inmitten von schwarzem Glamour und Blue Notes, Swing und Spirituals, politischen Aufwieglern, gerissenen Gaunern und verlorenen Spinnern.

The collapse of industrial civilization is rapidly unfolding and offers us an opportunity far beyond mere survival, even as it renders absurd any attempts to "fix" or prevent the end of the world as we have known it. Sacred Demise is about the transformation of human consciousness and the emergence of a new paradigm as a result discovering our purpose in the collapse process, thereby coming home to our ultimate place in the universe. Our willingness to consciously embark on the journey with openness and uncertainty may be advantageous for engendering a quantum evolutionary leap for our species and for the earth community. "Carolyn Baker is tireless in her quest to understand and speak about the collapse of civilization. Her message is simple: our journey through collapse will be as much a spiritual one as a physical one, a journey back from profound disconnection to the sacred. And so our emotional, psychological and spiritual preparations will be as important as the gardens we plant, the healing skills we acquire, and the actions we take in defense of the community of life. A book of tools and exercises to help with that preparation, then, is a welcome and much-needed addition to the literature of collapse."--Tim Bennett and Sally Erickson, Writer and Producer of the documentary "What A Way To Go: Life At the End of Empire" "Carolyn speaks with a confidence that never flinches from entering into the hardest truths of our times, or from the most difficult truths about the culture we are immersed in, so that we might emerge from the chrysalis of global crisis with open hearts and a renewed way of living on Earth together."--Juan Santos, Fourth World Blogspot

What comes after the reconceptualization of curriculum studies? What is the contribution of the next wave of curriculum scholars? Comprehensive and on the cutting edge, this Handbook speaks to these questions and extends the conversation on present and future directions in curriculum studies through the work of twenty-four newer scholars who explore, each in their own unique ways, the present moment in curriculum studies. To contextualize the work of this up-and-coming generation, each chapter is paired with a shorter response by a well-known scholar in the field, provoking an intra-/inter-generational exchange that illuminates both historical trajectories and upcoming moments. From theorizing at the crossroads of feminist thought and post-colonialism to new perspectives that include critical race, currere, queer southern studies, Black feminist cultural analysis, post-structural policy studies, spiritual ecology, and East-West international philosophies, present and future directions in the U.S. American field are revealed.

The Organic Globalizer is a collection of critical essays which takes the position that hip-hop holds political significance through an understanding of its ability to at once raise cultural awareness, expand civil society's focus on social and economic justice through institution building, and engage in political activism and participation. Collectively, the essays assert hip hop's importance as an “organic globalizer:” no matter its pervasiveness or reach around the world, hip-hop ultimately remains a grassroots phenomenon that is born of the community from which it permeates. Hip hop, then, holds promise through three separate but related avenues: (1) through cultural awareness and identification/recognition of voices of marginalized communities through music and art; (2) through social creation and the institutionalization of independent alternative institutions and non-profit organizations in civil society geared toward social and economic justice; and (3) through political activism and participation in which demands are articulated and made on the state. With editorial bridges between chapters and an emphasis on interdisciplinary and diverse perspectives, The Organic Globalizer is the natural scholarly evolution in the conversation about hip-hop and politics.

Die beiden Schwestern Eurídice und Guida sind schön, mutig und eigensinnig. Sie leben im Rio de Janeiro der 1940er Jahre, doch auch wenn in der Stadt kosmopolitisches Flair herrscht, sollen Frauen vor allem eines sein: liebende Gattinnen und Mütter. Damit wollen sich die beiden Schwestern Gusmão allerdings nicht zufriedengeben. Und so ersinnen sie mit großem Einfallsreichtum immer wieder neue Wege, um ihrem Familienalltag zu entkommen. Ob als Köchinnen, Schneiderinnen oder Liebhaberinnen – die beiden erkämpfen sich ihr eigenes Glück. Und am Ende ihrer Reise werden sie herausfinden, dass die größte Lebensfreude dort verborgen ist, wo sie am allerwenigsten danach gesucht hätten ... Die vielen Talente der Schwestern Gusmão erzählt von dem unermüdlichen Optimismus zweier Frauen, die alle Konventionen über Bord werfen und sich ihren eigenen kleinen Kosmos erschaffen. Martha Batalha evoziert eine Welt voller Nostalgie, Esprit und Humor, die man nie wieder verlassen möchte.

The archetypal and symbolic qualities of mystical states of consciousness are ineffable, timeless, and fleeting, but they act as powerful reminders that it is possible to transcend our limited understanding to glimpse a unified eternal reality, which we are part of. The pilgrimage of life ends in death--there is no denial of this fact, but in Immortal Yearnings, we are asked to consider whether by giving the symbolism from universal imaginings a voice, we can use our perception to enrich our myths about death. Annamaria Hemingway PhD is a writer, speaker, spiritual counselor and member of the International Association for Near-Death Studies.

Keine andere Autorin hat über die Jahrzehnte hin den Rassenkonflikt in Amerika so konsequent und leidenschaftlich beschrieben wie die Literaturnobelpreisträgerin Toni Morrison. "Gott, hilf dem Kind" setzt den mit "Jazz" begonnenen Zyklus fort, in dem Morrison die Situation der Schwarzen in den USA beleuchtet. Ein weiterer großer Roman der im Kampf gegen Rassismus engagierten Autorin. Lula Ann ist ein so tiefschwarzes Baby, dass ihre Mutter Sweetness bei der Geburt fast zu Tode erschrickt und der Vater die junge Familie auf der Stelle verlässt, weil er nicht glauben kann, dass dieses Kind von ihm ist. Sweetness erzieht Lula Ann zu Gehorsam und Unterwürfigkeit, nur nicht auffallen, aus Angst vor rassistischen Angriffen. Doch die heranwachsende Tochter sträubt sich gegen die verordnete Angepasstheit. Sie ändert ihren Namen, in Bride, kleidet sich in provokant strahlendes Weiß, macht Karriere bei einer Kosmetikfirma, verliebt sich in einen geheimnisvollen Mann und befreit sich auf ihre Weise von der Vergangenheit. Zwei starke Frauen, zwei verschiedene Lebensentwürfe, in dem Versuch, sich zu schützen und gleichzeitig zu behaupten. Ein Roman, der zur Weltliteratur gehört.
