In 2003, Tibetan lama Phakyab Rinpoche was admitted to the emergency clinic of the Program for Survivors of Torture at Manhattan’s Bellevue Hospital. After a dramatic escape from imprisonment in China, at the hands of authorities bent on uprooting Tibet’s traditional religion and culture, his ordeal had left him with life-threatening injuries, including gangrene of the right ankle. American doctors gave Rinpoche a shocking choice: accept leg amputation or risk a slow, painful death. An inner voice, however, prompted him to try an unconventional cure: meditation. He began an intensive spiritual routine that included thousands of hours of meditation over three years in a small Brooklyn studio. Against all scientific logic, his injuries gradually healed. In this vivid, passionate account, Sofia Stril-Rever relates the extraordinary experiences of Phakyab Rinpoche, who reveals the secret of the great healing powers that lie dormant within each of us.

Read Wendy Shanker's blogs and other content on the Penguin Community. From the author of The Fat Girl's Guide to Life—an insightful and humorous memoir of one woman's quest to navigate the world of alternative healing. At age 33, Wendy Shanker was on the verge of Have It All-itis: a Midwestern girl living in Manhattan, writing for television, mingling with celebrities, and publishing her first book. Plus, she had a fierce haircut. Life was good. Then suddenly, it wasn't. Diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disease, Wendy knew she was in for it- at the very least a cocktail of chemo and steroids (certain to challenge her body image), a bustling career put on hold, and a major hurdle to her dating life. When she ran out of medical options, Wendy found herself exploring everything from acupuncture, colonics, and energy healing to detox retreats, tarot card readers, and an intuitive therapist who wanted her to talk to her liver. Surely there must be a guru somewhere who can fix everything-right? Watch a Video

From one of America’s top meditation teachers comes a revolutionarily simple approach to everyday practice—especially if you don’t think you have the time or the patience. Imagine you’re sitting on a cushion with your legs crossed, ready to tap into unlimited joy. There’s just one problem: You can’t get comfortable (let alone still), and your head is full of way too many thoughts. The problem is not with meditation, or you, though—the issue may be with your approach. When properly understood and practiced, meditation should feel easy, calming, and comfortable. In Bliss More, maverick instructor Light Watkins provides the tools for making it E.A.S.Y. (Embrace, Accept, Surrender, Yield), dispels the biggest myths and misunderstandings, and shares real-world tips and straight talk for hacking into this ancient practice. The result: a happier and healthier you, inside and out. Watkins also shares candid testimonials from people whose lives have been enriched through his method, and extensive resources for transforming a daily chore into an enjoyable activity. Even the biggest skeptic will look forward to sitting for meditation every day. Whether you’re a novice or experienced practitioner, Bliss More will shed light on the path to a clearer mind, better sleep, and more bliss in everyday life. Advance praise for Bliss More “Light Watkins’s approach to meditation is both simple and profound. With him as your guide, you will unlock the secrets to establishing a regular and powerfully healthy daily practice.”—Deepak Chopra, MD, author of The Healing Self “It’s impossible to read Bliss More and not come away with a comprehensive understanding of how easy and simple meditation can be, why you should be practicing it daily, and how it will improve your life in meaningful and transformative ways.”—Mark Hyman, MD, author of Eat Fat, Get Thin and The Blood Sugar Solution “Light was my meditation teacher, and Bliss More perfectly encapsulates the timeless wisdom I learned in his training. If you’re ready to start a solid meditation practice, look no further.”—Rosario Dawson, actress “In a confusing world of information, one fact always comes up undisputed—meditating is good for you. I was ‘too busy’ and ‘didn't know how’ to meditate. Light Watkins has been the individual to show me just how easy it is to make meditation a part of my everyday life. We all owe those few minutes a day to ourselves.”—Gabby Reece, professional volleyball player and author, My Foot Is Too Big for the Glass Slipper

"I feel like throwing up. Sweat and tears mingle on my cheek. 'This will pass,' I try to convince myself. 'This will pass.' I have been at the meditation centre for six days. I have four days left to go. I could get up and walk out the door right now. No one would stop me. But then nothing would change. And everything has to change." Mary-Lou Stephens was lucky to make it into her forties. Therapy and AA helped her recover from her upbringing in an evangelical household; her habit of shoplifting through drama school; her addictions to food, drugs and alcohol; a string of failed love affairs and the break up of several bands. She has landed a dream job as a radio personality. Life is looking good. Except that Mary-Lou has a new boss, a psychopath in a suit. Determined to avoid MORE therapy and desperate to cope with an increasingly toxic work environment, Mary-Lou signs up for a ten-day meditation retreat that requires total silence, endless hours of sitting cross-legged, and a food-as-fuel kind of diet. For a woman who talks for a living, is rarely still and cooks for comfort, this was never going to be an easy task. Darkly funny and beautifully told, Sex, Drugs and Meditation is a tale for those of us who confuse being busy with being happy; the story of a woman who dared herself to stop talking and start living - and loving.

Meditation is an effective, life-long practice that can help people with Asperger Syndrome to steer their own life course and improve wellbeing. This useful guide provides Aspies with a clear explanation of how to reap the benefits of welcoming meditation practices into their lives. In addition to its great value as a relaxation technique, meditation can positively influence emotions, curb anxiety and meltdowns, and promote self-esteem and self-awareness. This book discusses why common Aspie character traits such as dedication and introversion make people with Asperger Syndrome particularly well suited to practicing meditation and offers guidance on choosing the right type of meditation to suit each individual's needs. With useful advice on how to begin, where to meditate, what to wear, and much more, the book shows that meditation can be a powerful everyday technique for personal development and self-discovery.

This is a true story of the author's friendship with Alice, a cat, and how she helped him through a difficult time in his life, bringing him to a new level of looking at both life and death. My Cat Saved My Life explores the relationship between cat and man: the ways in which she gave him a clearer understanding of existence; taught him, in fact, how to live, how to achieve a spiritual awakening to the world, and the place of humans in it. Phillip Schreibman rescued a sickly stray kitten when he was struggling with both his parents' deaths. The emotions he experienced had driven him into a deep depression, which had begun to fracture his relationships, disconnect him from the everyday world, and impair his work as a composer. Alice soon began to insinuate herself into all aspects of Schreibman's daily routine. He began a personal journey to discover the cat's "strategy of life". Their ensuing adventures and the exploration of the bond that grew between them make a remarkable tale of how one species can teach another -- with respect, compassion, and love.
