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.

NEW WORLD NOW PODCAST, Episode 26: TAMING YOUR OUTER CHILD with Susan Anderson
By Publicity Admin

What makes us cheat on our diets, run up the debt on our credit cards, and/or date the wrong people? We know these aren’t healthy choices, and that we’re sabotaging our own best interests when we make them, but sometimes we just can’t help it. In this inspiring conversation, psychotherapist and author of Taming Your Outer Child Susan Anderson discusses self-sabotaging behaviors and how they often come from an aspect of our personalities that most people aren’t consciously aware of — the Outer Child. She explains the many ways that the Outer Child can wreak havoc on our adult lives and offers a three-pronged program for stopping this self-defeating behavior — behavior that gratifies us in the moment but ultimately prevents us from achieving our most cherished goals and dreams. Find out how you can tame your own Outer Child on this latest episode of New World Now.

ANIMAS: An excerpt from THE SPIRITUAL NATURE OF ANIMALS by Karlene Stange, DVM
By Publicity Admin

Author Karlene Stange’s spiritual journey began during her work as an ambulatory veterinarian, driving her pickup truck through southwestern Colorado, attending to animals in need of medical care. She has experienced the challenges, sorrows, and joys of working with creatures great and small, and she feels a powerful kinship with these beautiful beings beyond flesh and fur and feathers. 

Her book, The Spiritual Nature of Animals: A Country Vet Explores the Wisdom, Compassion, and Souls of Animals, chronicles her spiritual path working with animals, through the lenses of various teachings of religious and cultural traditions, as well as her own encounters with the magnificent Rocky Mountain terrain and the quirky characters — both animal and human — who inhabit it.
