Materializing Magic Power paints a broad picture of the dynamics of popular religion in Taiwan. The first book to explore contemporary Chinese popular religion from its cultural, social, and material perspectives, it analyzes these aspects of religious practice in a unified framework and traces their transformation as adherents move from villages to cities. In this groundbreaking study, Wei-Ping Lin offers a fresh perspective on the divine power of Chinese deities as revealed in two important material forms—god statues and spirit mediums. By examining the significance of these religious manifestations, Lin identifies personification and localization as the crucial cultural mechanisms that bestow efficacy on deity statues and spirit mediums. She further traces the social consequences of materialization and demonstrates how the different natures of materials mediate distinct kinds of divine power. The first part of the book provides a detailed account of popular religion in villages. This is followed by a discussion of how rural migrant workers cope with challenges in urban environments by inviting branch statues of village deities to the city, establishing an urban shrine, and selecting a new spirit medium. These practices show how traditional village religion is being reconfigured in cities today.

Was Nirvana's near-fatal accident at sea simply a case of bad timing, or was it attempted suicide? And what was so important about an unread email that made her jump recklessly into the Mediterranean? As Leila tries to make sense of her aunt's fate, Nirvana embarks on a journey through memories and secrets. Leila guiltily questions her own fears and failures, bearing the blame of a family that curses the day she was born. Lying in a coma, Nirvana's story of choices made and roads not taken paint a colorful picture of her struggle against expectations in 1980s Egypt. The two voices are skillfully woven together to create an intricate narrative about breaking free from family tradition and the dreams that come back to haunt us. From the sunny beaches of Alexandria to the Bavarian Alps, author Mai Khaled explores the subtleties of family relationships and individual choices.

ANDRAS SELF DEVELOPMENT WORKBOOK The ANDRAS workbook explores new fields of thought and feeling in human motivation, helping you to make sense of life’s experiences – some of which, at times, overwhelm us. The aim is to give you an explanation of the incredible logic of the human mind and to understand why we continue to do the things we would rather not do at all. This study has immediate rewards as it is supposed that you will be using your own experiences as a reference at all times. Insights not thought of up until now will challenge many of your set ideas and your world-view. It will also motivate you in your persistency for your personal search for one of the greatest of all virtues – your search for truth. This ANDRAS workbook will give you answers to long-asked questions. By responding as truthfully as you can (even to asking people close to you for the answers) when completing the activities on the right hand pages, you will get inner satisfaction in realms philosophical, physical and metaphysical. This workbook will also give you techniques to implement change that will give you control over the day-to-day unwanted repeating patterns that consume so much energy and time. The ANDRAS workbook is based on the premise that the individual can be in control of his or her own destiny and that we create the ‘reality’ we call our ‘fate’. Change can take place in your life by the application of free thought-power and free will-power – if you take the necessary effort to unlock that power of thought and will. The ANDRAS workbook explains how the pictures we carry in the subconscious mind creates the life in our destiny and that we can access any negative pictures and resolve the associated feeling in a symbolic process to create a chosen picture reflecting your real worth. The challenge to you is to learn HOW TO BELIEVE in those chosen pictures and let the pictures and your thoughts move in harmony on to your chosen words and then into planned action to productive achievement. Belief is the hardest part of any personal development. The ANDRAS workbook also explains the mechanics that you can apply to the processes you will learn. How you can assert influence in your outer surroundings with a strong inner sense of conviction and sound principle. This is the beginning of genuine inner knowing and you are introduced to the Wisdom Grid, which, in conjunction with the tool of Choice, will deepen your understanding of individual and collective behaviors to prompt you to communicate at a deeper and much more intuitive level – being true to yourself and the universal laws of love and grace.
