Rising Strong as a Spiritual Practice

Spirituality—How It Makes Us Stronger
 
With her previous bestsellers, Dr. Brené Brown helped us realize that vulnerability is the birthplace for trust, courage, joy, creativity, and love. Yet a willingness to be vulnerable means accepting that life will sometimes knock us down. Where do we find the strength to get back up? In her research on resilient people, Brené discovered a key factor. “Without exception,” she says, “the concept of spirituality emerged from the data as a critical component of resilience and overcoming struggle.” On Rising Strong as a Spiritual Practice, Brené offers an in-depth exploration of this key aspect of wholehearted living, including:
 
• The spiritual dimension of the Rising Strong process: the Reckoning, the Rumble, and the Revolution
• A sense of belonging—how spirituality encourages us to be ourselves instead of trying to change in order to fit in
• Why the sense of perspective provided by a spiritual practice helps us find meaning and purpose
• “Are we doing the best we can?”—How faith in humanity can help us become more compassionate and less judgmental
• Why the spiritual understanding of death and rebirth are invaluable in the process of forgiveness
 
On Rising Strong as a Spiritual Practice, Brené defines spirituality as something not reliant on religion, theology, or dogma—rather, it is a belief in our interconnectedness and in a loving force greater than ourselves. Whether you access the sacred through traditional worship, solitary meditation, communion with nature, or creative pursuits, one thing is clear: cultivating your own approach to spirituality gives you an irreplaceable resource to help you persevere through hard times and arise stronger and wiser than before.

Braving the Wilderness: The Quest for True Belonging and the Courage to Stand Alone
A timely and important new book that challenges everything we think we know about cultivating true belonging in our communities, organizations, and culture, from the #1 bestselling author of Rising Strong, Daring Greatly, and The Gifts of Imperfection

“True belonging doesn’t require us to change who we are. It requires us to be who we are.” Social scientist Brené Brown, PhD, LMSW, has sparked a global conversation about the experiences that bring meaning to our lives—experiences of courage, vulnerability, love, belonging, shame, and empathy. In Braving the Wilderness, Brown redefines what it means to truly belong in an age of increased polarization. With her trademark mix of research, storytelling, and honesty, Brown will again change the cultural conversation while mapping a clear path to true belonging.

Brown argues that we’re experiencing a spiritual crisis of disconnection, and introduces four practices of true belonging that challenge everything we believe about ourselves and each other. She writes, “True belonging requires us to believe in and belong to ourselves so fully that we can find sacredness both in being a part of something and in standing alone when necessary. But in a culture that’s rife with perfectionism and pleasing, and with the erosion of civility, it’s easy to stay quiet, hide in our ideological bunkers, or fit in rather than show up as our true selves and brave the wilderness of uncertainty and criticism. But true belonging is not something we negotiate or accomplish with others; it’s a daily practice that demands integrity and authenticity. It’s a personal commitment that we carry in our hearts.” Brown offers us the clarity and courage we need to find our way back to ourselves and to each other. And that path cuts right through the wilderness. Brown writes, “The wilderness is an untamed, unpredictable place of solitude and searching. It is a place as dangerous as it is breathtaking, a place as sought after as it is feared. But it turns out to be the place of true belonging, and it’s the bravest and most sacred place you will ever stand.” 

Praise for Brené Brown’s Rising Strong

“[Brown’s] research and work have given us a new vocabulary, a way to talk with each other about the ideas and feelings and fears we’ve all had but haven’t quite known how to articulate. . . . [She] empowers us each to be a little more courageous.”—The Huffington Post

The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World
Two great spiritual masters share their own hard-won wisdom about living with joy even in the face of adversity.
 
The occasion was a big birthday. And it inspired two close friends to get together in Dharamsala for a talk about something very important to them. The friends were His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. The subject was joy. Both winners of the Nobel Prize, both great spiritual masters and moral leaders of our time, they are also known for being among the most infectiously happy people on the planet.

From the beginning the book was envisioned as a three-layer birthday cake: their own stories and teachings about joy, the most recent findings in the science of deep happiness, and the daily practices that anchor their own emotional and spiritual lives. Both the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Tutu have been tested by great personal and national adversity, and here they share their personal stories of struggle and renewal. Now that they are both in their eighties, they especially want to spread the core message that to have joy yourself, you must bring joy to others.

Most of all, during that landmark week in Dharamsala, they demonstrated by their own exuberance, compassion, and humor how joy can be transformed from a fleeting emotion into an enduring way of life.

Practical Survival Skills for Sensitive and Empathic People
 
Are you an empath? If you’ve ever felt overwhelmed by noise and crowds, been put down for being too shy and introverted, or “caught” someone else’s bad mood, chances are you’re at least partially an empath. As an empath herself, Dr. Judith Orloff is uniquely versed in the challenges and opportunities facing people with extraordinary sensitivity. With Essential Tools for Empaths, she offers techniques, insights, and guided practices to help you overcome the most common pitfalls for empaths—while helping you develop your exceptional gifts of perception, compassion, and creativity. In this practice-based companion to her book, The Empath’s Survival Guide, she shows you how to:

• Discover what kind of empath you are—and what your particular obstacles and opportunities will be
• Stop absorbing physical and emotional symptoms from those around you
• Manage the challenges of sensory overload, social overwhelm, and empathy fatigue
• Protect yourself from narcissists, control freaks, and other energy vampires
• Enhance your health, intuition, and spiritual life
• Recognize and overcome the addiction issues empaths often face
• Flourish in intimate relationships while maintaining healthy boundaries
• Help non-empaths understand your needs and special abilities of perception
• Find fulfilling work that supports your sensitivities
• Raise empathic children in a healthy, supportive way
 
“Empaths are pioneers of a new way of being for humankind,” says Dr. Orloff. “We are in the midst of an evolution of human consciousness . . . and you are the path-forgers.” Here she brings empaths an invaluable resource for learning to survive and thrive in an overwhelming culture—so you can fully shine your power in the world.

Becoming a Teacher of Presence: Bringing Awareness to the Service of Others

Eckhart Tolle tells us that every encounter we have with another human being offers the opportunity for profound connection and transformation. For those who’ve made it their life’s work to help others, this insight is especially powerful.

Today, many people in what Eckhart calls “the helping professions”—including therapists, counselors, and other caregivers—are eager to learn practical ways to incorporate his guidance into their work. Becoming a Teacher of Presence brings you an in-depth audio program on accessing the source of wisdom and healing beyond the thinking mind while in the service of others.

Being in the Company of Being

Who—or what—actually teaches? How do we know when we’re offering genuine guidance versus something based in ego? What practices can we use to stay rooted in Presence while listening to and speaking with clients? Join Eckhart Tolle for this four-session exploration of “being in the company of Being” as we work with others in a helping or healing capacity.

“It’s one thing to believe that every encounter with another human being is sacred, and another to know it directly while in relationship,” teaches Eckhart. “That is love; that is what transforms the world.” Becoming a Teacher of Presence invites you to realize this sacred connection in the work you do with others.

HIGHLIGHTS

• Finding freedom from thought and living a life of Presence
• The evolution of Eckhart’s teaching
• Awakening through adversity
• Why we’re always teaching (or not teaching) Presence
• Working with physical challenges and managing pain
• The fallacy of readiness to teach—and being comfortable “not knowing”
• Guidance for working with individuals and in group settings
• Who—or what—teaches?
• Being in the company of Being—the value of sangha (spiritual community)
• The practice of gazing
• Bringing thoughtless awareness to everything
• The awakening of true intelligence

Building on the astonishing success of The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle presents readers with an honest look at the current state of humanity: He implores us to see and accept that this state, which is based on an erroneous identification with the egoic mind, is one of dangerous insanity.

Tolle tells us there is good news, however. There is an alternative to this potentially dire situation. Humanity now, perhaps more than in any previous time, has an opportunity to create a new, saner, more loving world. This will involve a radical inner leap from the current egoic consciousness to an entirely new one.In illuminating the nature of this shift in consciousness, Tolle describes in detail how our current ego-based state of consciousness operates. Then gently, and in very practical terms, he leads us into this new consciousness. We will come to experience who we truly are—which is something infinitely greater than anything we currently think we are—and learn to live and breathe freely.

The Empath's Survival Guide: Life Strategies for Sensitive People
What Is the Difference Between Having Empathy and Being an Empath?
