ALAN WATTS ON THE LAWS OF SPIRIT AND NATURE: An excerpt from THE COLLECTED LETTERS OF ALAN WATTS coedited by Joan Watts & Anne Watts
By Publicity Admin

In this brand-new, never-before-published collection, we get to take a deep, personal dive into the thoughts and feelings of one of the Western world’s most beloved philosophers, Alan Watts. His daughters Joan and Anne Watts put together this fascinating archive of letters, newsletters, and other correspondence that covers everything from his early years in a British boarding school to the last months of his life living in Northern California. 

In the following excerpt, we get an early look at the fascinating interfaith connections Alan Watts was already making in his thoughts and ideas. In 1939, he was just twenty-four years old with a baby daughter (Joan Watts, one of the coeditors of this collection) and had freshly arrived in America after the rumblings of war in Europe became too loud to ignore.

EDITOR’S FOREWORD by Nancy Allison: An excerpt from THE ECSTASY OF BEING by Joseph Campbell
By Publicity Admin

New World Library is very excited to be publishing a brand-new book by the well-known and much-loved comparative mythologist Joseph Campbell. His wife, Jean Erdman, was a leading figure in modern dance who worked with Martha Graham. The Ecstasy of Being brings together seven of Campbell’s previously uncollected articles on dance as well as the treatise he was working on when he died, “Mythology and Form in the Performing and Visual Arts.”

In many ways, this book is a love letter both to his wife and to art-making itself, celebrating dance and the performing arts through the unique mythological lens that only Joseph Campbell can provide. We hope you’ll enjoy this excerpt from the book’s foreword by editor Nancy Allison.

NEW WORLD NOW PODCAST, Episode 27: BIG FAT LIES WOMEN TELL THEMSELVES with Amy Ahlers
By Publicity Admin

“You don’t deserve it.” “Who do you think you are?” “You’re too old, not pretty enough, and barely talented.” Do you recognize this voice? It’s the voice of the Inner Critic. It’s negative. It’s catty. It’s judgmental. It compares your worst to everyone else’s best. If you listen to your Inner Critic’s perspective, you will find yourself the loser every time, because it’s always finding evidence to prove its core theory — that you are not enough. In this fun, high-energy interview, Amy Ahlers, the author of Big Fat Lies Women Tell Themselves, lets us know, “Your Inner Critic is a big fat liar!” She then takes us step-by-step through the process of disempowering the Inner Critic’s meanness and replacing its debilitating lies with inspiring truths.

MEDITATION AND THE HOLIDAYS: An excerpt from HOW TO SURVIVE YOUR CHILDHOOD NOW THAT YOU’RE AN ADULT by Ira Israel
By Publicity Admin

Every adult wants to live a version of what he or she imagines is “the good life.” Yet many of us struggle with a default inner voice that tells us that whatever we do will never be good enough and that we will only be happy when we get a new job, relationship, physical appearance, and so on.

In How to Survive Your Childhood Now That You’re an Adult: A Path to Authenticity and Awakening, author and psychotherapist Ira Israel explains that the origin of this voice of dissatisfaction is the wounded child within us who is subconsciously and retroactively seeking the acceptance, approval, and love of primary caregivers who either withheld love, loved us conditionally, or treated us in ways we did not understand.

LOVE AS AN ART: An excerpt from THE FORGOTTEN ART OF LOVE by Dr. Armin Zadeh
By Publicity Admin

Who better than a cardiologist to unpack the many dimensions of love, the emotion that has long been depicted as emanating from the heart? 

A comprehensive, multifaceted exploration into the nature of love is precisely what Dr. Armin A. Zadeh, who is both a cardiologist and a professor at Johns Hopkins University, offers in his new book, The Forgotten Art of Love: What Love Means and Why It Matters. We hope you’ll enjoy this short excerpt. 

# # #

Essentially everything we think and do can be done with love in mind. However, to be aware of this every minute of every day is enormously hard. Unless we were raised to focus on love, it requires extensive training of our brain. That is why Erich Fromm [author of the 1956 classic The Art of Loving] considered love an art — and I agree.
