THE WAYS OF LIBERATION: Insights from PSYCHOTHERAPY EAST & WEST by Alan Watts
By Publicity Admin

Spiritual philosopher and author Alan Watts introduced millions of Western readers to Zen and other Eastern philosophies, and New World Library is pleased to be reissuing his book Psychotherapy East & West, which was originally published in 1961. Watts proposes that psychotherapy without an understanding of Eastern philosophies can fall short of helping one to reach a feeling of true liberation. In fact, Watts proposes that Western science and art actually reach a closer agreement with the Eastern view of “liberation from suffering” than conventional Western psychotherapy.

We hope you’ll enjoy this sampling of excerpts from the book’s preface and three of its chapters, “The Ways of Liberation,” “Through a Glass Darkly,” and “Invitation to Dance.” Together they offer a glimpse into the wonderful and complex mind of the iconic Alan Watts.

THE STRESS OF PREJUDICE by guest blogger Arthur P. Ciaramicoli, author of THE STRESS SOLUTION
By Publicity Admin
Whenever we encounter someone we have an inherent prejudice against, whether conscious or unconscious, we begin to experience a degree of stress. When we are stressed we release the stress hormone cortisol, which limits our capacity for empathy while also causing repetitive negative thinking. If you have prejudices against several types of people, it is likely that your cortisol levels will be consistently high. In addition to causing negative thinking, excess cortisol can cause weight gain, inflammation, hair loss, muscle tissue breakdown, flabbiness, depression, anxiety, and memory loss.

Who are America’s emergency first responders?

They are our country’s everyday heroes, ordinary men and women who courageously sacrifice and selflessly serve their communities by protecting and giving life to the rest of us. They are our police officers, firefighters, paramedics, emergency dispatchers, military personnel, and hospital trauma workers, to whom we owe our lives.(READ MORE)
