In research at the University of Chicago Dr. Gendlin found that certain specific bodily responses could open up and lead to small steps of new experience. These bodily responses can indicate the steps for interpreting a dream. Theories about dreams differ and give contradictory interpretations. Dr. Gendlin derived 16 questions from the many existing theories to aid you the dreamer in the process of interpretation. In this book Dr. Gendlin teaches you to ask the questions so that your body can respond. You learn to recognise how it feels when a question is about to lead to a breakthrough. You learn to let the question complete itself so that the dream opens and you know without doubt what it is about. The first stage is learning what the dream is about. But this alone may not tell you anything you did not know before. The second stage is getting something new from the dream for your own development. The method developed by Dr. Gendlin solves what was until now an insurmountable problem: People could not interpret their own dreams because they always imposed their usual biases on them. Gendlin shows you how to open yourself to a new step.

LIFE GETS BETTER HB The Unexpected Pleasures of Growing Older Wendy Lustbader
From our earliest lives, we are told that our youth will be the best time of our lives—that the energy and vitality of youth are the most important qualities a person can possess and that everything that comes after will be a sad decline. But in reality, says Wendy Lustbader, youth is not the golden era it is often made out to be. For many, it is a time riddled with anxiety, angst, confusion and the torture of uncertainty. Conversely, the media often feeds us a vision of growing older as a journey of defeat and diminishment. They are dead wrong. As Lustbader counters, “Life gets better as we get older, on all levels except the physical.”
LIFE GETS BETTER is not a precious or whimsical tome on the quirky wisdom of the elderly. Lustbader—who has worked for several decades as a social worker specialising in ageing issues—conducted firsthand research with ageing and elderly people in all walks of life and she found that they overwhelmingly spoke of the mental and emotional richness they have drawn from ageing. Lustbader discovered that rather than experiencing a decline from youth, aging people were happier, more courageous and more interested in being true to their inner selves than were young people.
Don't dread the future: The best years of our lives just may be ahead.
In every hallowed fable, legend and maxim known the world over - from the parables of Christ to the tales of Ali Baba to the riddles of the alchemists - there hides a secret. For those with eyes to see it, this secret can be life-changing. It is so simple that it hides in plain sight, seen yet unseen every day.
Writing with the characteristic precision and vividness that has made him one of the greatest Inspirational authors of the past century, Robert Collier reveals this secret in his little-known classic, THE LIFE MAGNET.
What is this great secret? Simply this: The images that you impress upon your subconscious mind - whether of abundance or lack, failure or success - outpicture the surrounding world in startling and unexpected ways.
In THE LIFE MAGNET, Collier shows how to overcome mental obstacles and use this hidden power - which he variously calls the Divine Mind, the subconscious mind, the 'Genii-of-your-Mind' and the 'Open Sesame of life'. Whatever the name, Collier illustrates how it works, why it works, how to summon it and how to control it for higher good in your life.

Written for the terminally ill and their families as well as for hospice workers and others involved in the care of the dying, Life to Death introduces the technique of co-meditation: a method for helping a patient maintain a "clear mind and peaceful heart" during the process of dying. For centuries Tibetan lamas have used special breathing techniques and shared meditation practices to maintain a calm mental state in the dying person and ensure a safe transition. Adapting these powerful principles of consciousness transformation to modern Western needs, the authors have made accessible to all a profoundly compassionate technique for helping those most in need.
In addition to easing the suffering of the terminally ill, co-meditation provides families and other loved ones with a meaningful and constructive way of supporting the dying person.
The book covers a wide range of topics associated with death and dying and provides comfort and coping stategies.
