In 1838, 13,000 Cherokee were forced to leave their homeland in the southeast and walk 900 miles to present-day Oklahoma. Hunger, cold, fatigue, and disease threatened their very survival. Their grueling relocation trek - the Trail of Tears - takes on new immediacy and meaning with this stunning work of fiction. Maritole loses not only her home and her settled life in North Carolina, but also many of the people closest to her. A chorus of voices joins hers to vividly recreate the tragic story of the Cherokee removal. Amid wrenching scenes of hardship and pain, there is the underlying strength that ultimately allowed this ancient people to endure. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Diane Glancy.

Paul's new home with the Muellers provides solace, especially in the form of Rachel, his friend and confidante. Their abiding friendship deepens as they work side by side to uncover what could be lost treasure. Will they acquire the strength of character and virtue to take only what rightfully belongs to them or are they in way over their heads, with more than a few lost artifacts at stake? Themes include premarital chastity and overcoming temptation. "When a young man or woman recognizes that authentic love is a precious treasure, they are also enabled to live their sexuality in accordance with the divine plan, rejecting the false models which are, unfortunately, all too frequently publicized and very widespread."

Every 13,000 years on Earth a sacred and secret event takes place that changes everything. Mother Earth's Kundalini energy emerges from its resting place in the planet's core and moves like a snake across the surface of our world. Once at home in ancient Lemuria, it moved to Atlantis, then to the Himalayan mountains of India and Tibet, and with every relocation changed our idea of what spiritual means. And gender. And heart. This time, with much difficulty, the Serpent of Light has moved to the Andes Mountains of Chile and Peru. Multi-dimensional, multi-disciplined, and multi-lived, for the first time in this book, Drunvalo begins to tell his stories of 35 years spent in service to Mother Earth. Follow him around the world as he follows the guidance of Ascended Masters, his two spheres of light, and his own inner growing knowledge. His story is a living string of ceremonies to help heal hearts, align energies, right ancient imbalances, and balance the living Earth's Unity Consciousness Grid - in short, to increase our awareness of the indivisibility of life in the universe. We are all - rocks and people and interdimensional beings - one! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Ashby. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/003216/bk_acx0_003216_sample.mp3.

In the chaos of World War II, Polish teenagers Helena and Luzyna Grabowski have lost everything. Without parents or a home, they are shipped to a refugee camp in Persia, where the days ahead hold only darkness. When they hear that orphans are being selected for relocation to New Zealand, Helena is filled with hope - until the officials say they have a place only for her younger sister. On the morning she is to be transported, Luzyna fails to join the chosen group, and Helena takes her place. But the horrors of war - and her guilt at abandoning her sister - follow Helena on the journey across the sea, as a man from her past preys on her fear and remorse. Though the people in New Zealand embrace her, the traumas Helena has suffered threaten her peace and blind her to the devotion of James, a charming, heroic young Allied pilot. If Helena can let go and dare to hope again, she may finally step out of the long shadow of her past to find a future made whole - a new community, a new family, a new love. 1. Language: English.

What is Violent Communication? If "violent" implies acting in manners which lead to hurt or harm, then much of how we communicate - judging others, bullying, having racial predisposition, blaming, finger pointing, discriminating, speaking without listening, criticizing others or ourselves, name-calling, reacting when angry, utilizing political rhetoric, being defensive or judging who's "good/bad" or what's "right/wrong" with people - might indeed be called "violent communication".What is Nonviolent Communication? Nonviolent communication is the integration of 4 things:Consciousness: a set of concepts that support living a life of empathy, collaboration, credibility, and gutsLanguage: comprehending how words contribute to connection or rangeCommunication: understanding how to request for what we want, how to hear others even in difference, and how to move toward services that work for allMeans of impact: sharing "power with others" rather than using "power over others"Nonviolent communication serves our desire to do 3 things:Increase our ability to deal with significance, connection, and choiceLink empathically with self and others to have more rewarding relationshipsSharing of resources so everyone is able to benefitYou're about to have an unpleasant meeting with your boss.
