It is my great joy to introduce you to Wild Love, this volume of ecstatic poetry by Dreaming-Bear Baraka Kanaan. A true spoken word genius, Dreaming-Bear is this generation's poet laureate of the heart. Dreaming-Bear is a master of metaphor; "each molecule-mantra" tenderly kissing the soul's "supernova of senses. As you turn these pages, be prepared to be awakened as his eloquent and alluring words transport you to the "naked tenderness of truth and the laughter and playfulness of "holy amorous mischief." Dreaming-Bear's spiritual DNA is powerful. A prodigy of Native American and Middle Eastern (Lebanese)decent, his ancestry illustrates a similar lineage with some of the worlds most profound poets: Gibran, Rumi, and Hafiz. Reminiscent of these poetic greats, Dreaming-Bear's understanding of science and spirit as well as his deep attunement to the whispers of nature allow you to see yourself as Lover and Beloved, in universal Oneness. Through his words we become enlightened, separation becomes an illusion, and a spiritual awakening unfolds. Our layers of identity, stories, victories, and laments to the Self that transcend personality disappear and we discover or our ultimate identity that is everyone and everything. Far from a state of self-delusion or escapism, this awakening represents the ultimate development of the most valuable qualities of human life: kindness, compassion, freedom, intelligence, and creativity. Under Dreaming-Bear's love spell, you will be ravished by "subatomic particles having a party" and will be moved to "undress your soul inside your heart's hallway." Together with Dreaming-Bear we can end the emotional ignorance of the past and learn to treat each other and ourselves with greater dignity and understanding. His work deserves a wide and universal audience of not only poetry lovers, but also of life lovers everywhere. His vision is fully worthy of our cosmic status as spiritual beings in human form. "Wild Love" can uplift the human race into human grace, where we can live "the light of a billion suns" and "surrender everything to love" for "tonight we dance!" - Harold Bloomfield, M.D., author of nineteen books including The New York Times best-seller "How to Survive the Loss of a Love." In the tradition of Rumi or Hafiz, Wild Love is a collection of love spells written in luminous word tapestries and divinely orchestrated to deeply inspire, passionately move, and spiritually intoxicate the reader to rise soul over senses in love. Through each heartfelt, magical, and poetic spell you will find yourself awakening to the unconditional love of Source, Lover, and the Earth.

In the heart of Ransom Canyon, sometimes the right match for a lonely soul is the one you least expect Dan Brigman may not lead the most exciting life, but he's proud of what he's achieved: he's a respected lawman, and he's raised a bright, talented daughter on his own. But finding a lone, sparkly blue boot in the middle of a deserted highway gets him thinking maybe the cowgirl who lost it is exactly the shake-up he needs. After losing her baby girl, Brandi Malone felt like her soul died along with her daughter. Now singing in small-town bars to make ends meet, she's fine being a drifter—until a handsome sheriff makes her believe that parking her boots under his bed is a better option. College grad Lauren Brigman has just struck out on her own in downtown Dallas when a troubling phone call leads her back home to Crossroads. Her hometown represents her family, friends and deepest hopes, but also her first love, Lucas Reyes. Will Lauren's homecoming be another heartbreak, or a second chance for her and Lucas?

Jill Sherer Murray lived in a dead-end relationship into her forties before she finally let it go. She was like millions of women who struggle with whether to stay in a loveless marriage, a bad relationship, or give up on dating altogether, believing love isn’t in the cards. You may be struggling with a similar decision yourself. Perhaps you’re terrified of being single, and yet you don’t truly feel you’re living the life you want. With warmth and honesty, Murray shows you how letting go—of feeling stuck, afraid, and alone, and of believing what you’ve got is all you deserve—can free you from a life that isn’t serving you. She knows this is true, because she did it herself—and ultimately attracted the love and life she wanted. Through her story, other women’s stories, surprising facts and statistics, and helpful exercises, Big Wild Love will show you the way back to the self you’ve lost. It will put you on the path to change and teach you that, wherever you are, it’s never too late to start anew and find the Big Wild Love you deserve.

On a cold February day two months after his 20th birthday, Henry Cockburn waded into the Newhaven estuary outside Brighton and tried to swim across, almost drowning in the process. The trees, he said, had told him to do it. Nearly halfway around the world, in Kabul, Afghanistan, journalist Patrick Cockburn learned that Henry, his son, had been admitted to a hospital mental ward and appeared to be suffering a mental breakdown. Ten days later, Henry was officially diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia. Thus begins Patrick and Henry's extraordinary account of Henry's steep descent into mental illness and of Patrick's journey towards understanding the changes it has wrought. With remarkable candour, Patrick writes of the seven years since, years Henry has spent almost entirely in mental hospitals. Schizophrenics are at high risk for suicide, and Patrick and his wife live in constant fear for Henry's life. Patrick also provides a fascinating glimpse into the conflicted history of schizophrenia's diagnosis and treatment and shows how little we still know about this debilitating condition. The book also includes Henry's own account of his experiences. In these raw and eerily beautiful chapters written from the hospital, he tells of the visions and voices that urge him on and of the sense that he has discovered something magical and profound. Together, Patrick's and Henry's stories create one of the most nuanced and revealing portraits of mental illness ever written, and a stirring memoir of family, parenthood, and the courage it takes to persevere and emerge, at last, whole.

What happens when two enterprising young women give up their Madison Avenue salaries, leave the glamorous whirl of New York behind, and move up to Maine to become proprietors of a country store? That's what Scotty Mackenzie and Dorothy Mignault did back in the 1940s, and Scotty's spirited account of their often hilarious setbacks and triumphs has been a well-love classic ever since. When she traded in her silk stockings and pumps for jeans and tennis shoes, Scotty learned a lot--about the people of Goose Rocks Beach, near Kennebunkport, where the store served summer people and year-round residents alike; about the hard work it takes to run a business during the hectic tourist season; about the wisdom to be gained from the solitude of a Maine winter; and most of all, about the strength of a community that sticks together through the best of times and the worst of tragedies. For Goose Rocks Beach, the tragedy swept in with the flames of the infamous Fire of '47, which leveled the small seaside community. Not only is My Love Affair with the State of Maine as fresh and enjoyable a read today as when it was first published, but over the years its value as a snapshot of a bygone era has increased. This new edition contains pictures and an afterword from Scotty herself, filling us in on her adventures since the book was written. It is a rare glimpse of the Maine that was, and that lives on in the hearts of all those who have had their own love affairs with the State of Maine.

In America, there is one divorce every thirteen seconds. That’s 6,646 divorces per day and 46,523 divorces per week. Why is the divorce rate so high? Are people getting married too soon and not getting to really know each other first, or are couples throwing in the towel on their marriage without truly trying? When God ordained the marriage of a man and a woman, He never said it would be easy, because it involves the union of two imperfect people, blending together with their own imperfections. Marriage is not a fairy tale, with a “happily ever after” ending. However, it is a union that requires two people working together daily at becoming one and developing the ability to recognize the attacks of the enemy. In A Well-Rounded Love Affair, you will learn how to focus on specific areas to help your relationship blossom. Some of the important areas are: • Covering your marriage with prayer • Learning to forgive • Realizing selfish love can’t thrive • You and your spouse working together to become one Through your reading, you will further see that it will take more than intimacy to hold your marriage together.

Savage Girls and Wild Boys is a fascinating history of extraordinary children---brought up by animals, raised in the wilderness, or locked up for long years in solitary confinement. Wild or feral children have fascinated us through the centuries, and continue to do so today. In a haunting and hugely readable study, Michael Newton deftly investigates a number of infamous cases. He looks at Peter the Wild Boy, who gripped the attention of Swift and Defoe, and at Victor of Aveyron, who roamed wild in the forests of revolutionary France. He tells the story of a savage girl lost on the streets of Paris, of two children brought up by wolves in the jungles of India, and of a Los Angeles girl who emerged from thirteen years locked in a room to international celebrity. He describes, too, a boy brought up among monkeys in Uganda; and in Moscow, the child found living with a pack of wild dogs. Savage Girls and Wild Boys examines the lives of these children and of the adults who "rescued" them, looked after them, educated, or abused them. How can we explain the mixture of disgust and envy that such children can provoke? And what can they teach us about our notions of education, civilization, and man's true nature?

Tracing the configuration of the slapstick, destitute Peladita/Peladito and the Pachuca/Pachuco (depicted in flashy zoot suits) from 1928 to 2004, Wild Tongues is an ambitious, extensive examination of social order in Mexican and Chicana/o cultural productions in literature, theater, film, music, and performance art. From the use of the Peladita and the Peladito as stock characters who criticized various aspects of the Mexican government in the 1920s and 1930s to contemporary performance art by María Elena Gaitán and Dan Guerrero, which yields a feminist and queer-studies interpretation, Rita Urquijo-Ruiz emphasizes the transnational capitalism at play in these comic voices. Her study encompasses both sides of the border, including the use of the Pachuca and the Pachuco as anti-establishment, marginal figures in the United States. The result is a historically grounded, interdisciplinary approach that reimagines the limitations of nation-centered thinking and reading. Beginning with Daniel Venegas’s 1928 novel, Las aventuras de don Chipote o Cuando los pericos mamen, Rita Urquijo-Ruiz’s Wild Tongues demonstrates early uses of the Peladito to call attention to the brutal physical demands placed on the undocumented Mexican laborer. It explores Teatro de Carpa (tent theater) in-depth as well, bringing to light the experience of Mexican Peladita Amelia Wilhelmy, whose “La Willy” was famous for portraying a cross-dressing male soldier who criticizes the failed Revolution. In numerous other explorations such as these, the political, economic, and social power of creativity continually takes center stage.
