The first story in this book is Jackie Waldman's own -- the self-described charmed life -- until July of 1991, when she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. It took years, but eventually she came to understand that a person with MS is only part of who she is.
Since her diagnosis she's done a number of things, including publish the Courage to Give series. In this most recent addition to the series, Waldman has collected stories of 24 men and women living with MS, who have extraordinary lives, who've gone way beyond slogging through every day, who've found the courage to do new things or old things in new ways, to make the lives of those around them -- sometimes tens of thousands of those around them -- so much better.

This book, for professionals as well as for general readers, identifies and consolidates an understanding of personality development, personality type, and personality style. Twelve Styles are identified and displayed through case examples. Examined is the powerful organising principle of how emotion, especially anger, is managed. A detailed glossary helps guide the reader.
PET GHOSTS Animal Encounters From Beyond the Grave Joshua Warren
Paranormal investigator Joshua Warren thought his dachshund was dead, but for weeks after her death he still heard her shrill, desperate whining haunting his home. Using an array of high-tech equipment he searched for her presence. What he found led him on an exploration of ghostly animals throughout history.
That exploration is here in PET GHOSTS. Ancient and medieval texts from all cultures are filled with references to spectral creatures - from witch's familiars, like ominous cats and owls, to giant hellhounds and werewolves. Some beasts such as fire-breathing dragons, Bigfoot and Mothman may even be spirits of mysterious extinct animals. Today reports of 'phantimals' are as abundant as ever. In PET GHOSTS Warren recounts many real-life experiences: a man haunted by the cackling calls of his dead African Grey, a Christmas dinner hog pursuing the farmer that killed him and a snake that slithers between this world and the next.
Many animals can sense information beyond human ability. Dogs and cats can hear more, birds can see more and some fish even have a sixth sense for magnetism. What makes the relationship with your pet so special? Perhaps that's what often keeps them around long after death. Also included in PET GHOSTS: · Interviews with animal experts such as cryptozoologist Loren Coleman. · Simple tools and techniques for you to find and record your pet's spirit. · Theories on how 'phantimals' manifest. · Tips on how to contact your deceased pet.
Millions of households include animal companions. The grief that follows the death of an animal companion has only recently become recognised in the mental health field. While it is absolutely normal and healthy to mourn a deceased pet the grieving process can be crippling emotionally mentally and even physically. This insightful and helpful book will help anyone: · Discover the many emotional reactions and responses to the loss of a pet; · Learn what happens at a pet cemetery burial cremation or home burial; · Find out arrangements that are legally available that your veterinarian may not tell you; · Follow the rituals provided or get ideas for developing your own ceremony to honour your pet; · Cope with the trauma of a terminally ill or runaway pet; · Assist your children in coping with and recovering from their loss; · Understand how different spiritual belief systems recognize and counsel pet loss. Readers will learn the psychological facts about the human and animal bond and how to deal with the initial shock of their loss as well as the anger guilt and sadness they may feel. Extremely practical PET LOSS also offers the gift of understanding for those who may feel they are alone in their sorrow.

PEYOTE DREAMS Journeys in the Land of Illumination Charles Duits
· Shows how peyote and other visionary plants do not distort reality but gloriously unveil it, pulling the mind out of its cosmic slumber and revealing our unity with all life · Explains the necessity when working with peyote to remain the master of one's mind and consciously work on oneself · Examines how modern society's revulsion to sacramental plants and other consciousness expanders is deeply rooted in Western philosophy
Charles Duits was caught in the grip of a dead-end existential and spiritual crisis.At the urging of one of his oldest friends, he takes peyote “like a man committing suicide,” launching him on a visionary journey of philosophical examination and spiritual revelation.
In this little-known classic of drug literature, we find a detailed account of the radical alteration of consciousness and discovery of life's purpose brought on by the Mexican cactus known as peyote. Consuming peyote more than 200 times, Duits lucidly describes the transformation of reality he experienced as well as the necessity to consciously work on oneself and remain the master of one's mind in order to avoid getting carried away by hallucinations. The author examines how modern society's revulsion to sacramental plants and other consciousness expanders is deeply rooted in Western philosophy's embrace of reason and materialism at the expense of inner knowledge. He explains how sacramental plants do not distort reality as many fearfully believe but gloriously unveil it, pulling the mind out of its cosmic slumber and revealing a world that is finally real and full of meaning.
Poetic yet precise, Duits's descriptions of his peyote experiences offer a glimpse into the beautiful divine reality of which we are all a part, yet over which the structuresof society cast a veil. This guide to “sailing the inner sea” reveals that the answers to the meaning of life lie not in material pursuits but in experiencing the richness and unity of the world in front of us.
