IT’S A NEW WORLD NOW: 7 Empowering Podcasts for Trying Times by New World Library Social Media Manager Kim Corbin
By Publicity Admin

On one hand, as fast as time seems to be moving these days, it’s hard to believe that the New World Now podcast recently celebrated its first anniversary. On the other hand, when I think about the political mayhem, the tragic natural disasters, and the senseless acts of terrorism that have occurred in the same time period, the past year feels like it has lasted a lifetime. 

The first episode of New World Now aired one month and one day before the presidential election. Little did I realize the extent to which our cultural stakes were about to change, and just how imperative my intention for the podcast — to bring forward practical tools we can all use to be more mindful and present in our daily lives — was about to become.

NEITHER WOLF NOR DOG HITS THE BIG SCREEN by New World Library Associate Publicist Tristy Taylor with an excerpt from the book by Kent Nerburn
By Publicity Admin

Twenty-three years after its original publication, the popular New World Library book Neither Wolf nor Dog: On Forgotten Roads with an Indian Elder, by acclaimed author Kent Nerburn, has been adapted into a feature film. Thanks to the Museum of the American Indian and the Marin Community Foundation, a screening of this Steven Lewis Simpson–directed film recently took place in San Rafael, California. 

Nerburn also cowrote the screenplay (with Simpson), and the main character, played by the talented actor Christopher Sweeney, is based on him. After seeing the final cut, Nerburn said, “The film, in both its choices that reflect the book and its choices that go outside the book, is always and uncompromisingly respectful and accurate in its depiction of Native people and life. To my mind, there is not one false note in the portrayal of Native reality.”

By Publicity Admin
When Brad Warner randomly signed up for a class in Zen Buddhism as a young punk rocker in Akron, Ohio, in the late 1980s, he didn’t expect his whole life to change, but it did. Now, some thirty years later, he’s an ordained Soto Zen priest and the bestselling author of books including Don’t Be a Jerk and Sit Down and Shut Up. He is celebrated for his hilarious, edgy approach to Zen, and in this great conversation he explains how the practice of intentionally sitting down and shutting up every day has the potential to improve not only our individual lives, but the world around us as well.

HOW TO FACE THE MESS WE’RE IN WITHOUT GOING CRAZY: An Excerpt from ACTIVE HOPE by Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone
By Publicity Admin

The challenges we face can be difficult even to think about. Climate change, the depletion of oil, and a politically divided nation create what can feel like an emergency of overwhelming proportions. In their book, Active Hope: How to Face the Mess We’re in without Going Crazy, authors Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone show us how to strengthen our capacity to face this crisis so that we can respond with unexpected resilience and creative power.

Drawing on decades of teaching an empowerment approach known as the Work That Reconnects, the authors guide us through a transformational process informed by mythic journeys, modern psychology, spirituality, and holistic science. This process equips us with tools to face the mess we’re in and play our role in the collective transition, or Great Turning, to a life-sustaining society. We hope you’ll enjoy this excerpt from the book.
