Awakenings Book Description:

'The story of a disease that plunged its victims into a prison of viscous time, and the drug that catapulted them out of it' – Guardian Hailed as a medical classic, and the subject of a major feature film as well as radio and stage plays and various TV documentaries, Awakenings by Oliver Sacks is the extraordinary account of a group of twenty patients. Rendered catatonic by the sleeping-sickness epidemic that swept the world just after the First World War, all twenty had spent forty years in hospital: motionless and speechless; aware of the world around them, but exhibiting no interest in it – until Dr Sacks administered the then-new drug, L-DOPA, which caused them, temporarily, to awake from their decades-long slumber . . .

Awakenings Book Description:

It had all started out as just a game, and then "It" had come, and their world was never the same again. Was there actually any truth to the information being related to them from beyond? Was it an actual presence that brought them together, or was it all in their minds? Four misfits from a college in the Midwest are seemingly thrown together into a strange series of occurrences by the mysterious intelligence known only as "Zem". Author Tom Baker, his four cohorts, and the mysterious writer "John Pickman" take you on a strange, harrowing journey into the great dead heart of the haunted backroads of rural Indiana, and comb the antique buildings of a historic college campus in search of strange and elusive truths. A mind-shattering book, a tragic examination of human foibles, an intense and piercing examination of the human will to believe. Awakenings open your eyes, and join us. If you dare!

Great Awakenings Book Description:

As religious fervor grows, Dr. Fishwick, a recipient of the Ray and Pat Browne Award for Lifetime Achievement from The American Culture Association, takes a sweeping look at religion in the United States--the country with the highest church attendance in the Western world. Popular religion can take many shapes and forms. It can wax and wane, but it cannot be eliminated or ignored. That is what prompted him to write Great Awakenings: Popular Religion and Popular Culture. He ponders how religion affects American life and popular culture, and why religion has become a major force in contemporary politics. How has the Electronic Revolution furthered the religious right? What does popular religion tell us about popular culture? And about our faith? He identifies and explores five great religious revivals or “Great Awakenings:” the Atlantic Seaboard Awakening the Urban Awakening the Modernist Awakening the Celebrity Preacher Awakening the Electronic Awakening Fishwick explores the current events preceding and during each awakening, its leaders, followers, and critics. Great Awakenings gives a new understanding of the American religious past and leaves us with an anticipation for the next great awakening.

Political Awakenings Book Description:

As a kid, Noam Chomsky handed out the Daily Mirror at his uncle's newsstand on 72nd Street, inadvertently finding himself in a buzzing intellectual and political hub for European immigrants in New York. Iranian human rights Nobelist Shirin Ebadi and her husband signed their own legal contract, attempting to restore equality to their marriage after the Iranian Revolution effectively erased the legal rights of women. Elizabeth Warren set out to expose those frauds declaring bankruptcy and taking advantage of the system-only to discover, in her research, a very different story of hard-working middle-class families facing economic collapse in the absence of a social safety net. While studying at Oxford, a young Tariq Ali made a bet with a friend that he could work the Vietnam War into every single answer on his final exams. In this rousing, thoughtful, often funny, and always inspiring volume, a diverse and impressive group of thinkers reflect on those formative experiences that shaped their own political commitments. A fascinating new window into the revealing links between the personal and the political, Political Awakenings will engage readers across generations.

Some say this book is an ideal, romantic, self-love exploration—cosmic attunement and juicy bubbles; the ultimate fairytale, yet it’s real. Others say it is about transforming the old patterns in order to feel everything and connect to your full self. To move forward to building a life from the ground up so that eventually there’s a full community and total oneness. It isn’t just about twin flames reuniting. The twins come together to light the way. Really the story is alive and grows with each reader, wherever you are, bringing together soul family, getting you back in touch with the Earth and all her wonderful creatures. It is a simple, fun way to connect deeper to your inner gifts and knowing, whether read around campfires, in circles, or just relaxing on your own. “Twin Awakenings is a unique, magical dance of self discovery. It celebrates the often agonizing confusion one faces when searching for true love, and shows that the only real love we are searching for must come from within, an inspiration of self. The authors offer a glimpse of what it means to acknowledge this kind of love and the soul energizing freedom it can bring. Ultimately, this book is a beautiful reminder of what it means to be human, to be connected to the rumbling heartbeat of the earth, the breath of the wind, and to each other. This story is truly an awakening of spirit and a sweet affirmation that we are not alone. ” —Jeanette St. Germain-Boere, Community Wellness Center Director
