Deep Living: Transforming Your Relationship to Everything That Matters Through the Enneagram

To be at home in yourself and at ease in the world are among life's greatest blessings. In Deep Living, Dr. Roxanne Howe-Murphy illuminates the stunning and paradoxical mechanisms through which our personalities unconsciously take each of us in exactly the opposite direction of our deepest nature. The result is a seemingly unsolvable inner divide. Offering a radically compassionate, rare, and mature approach to personal change, Dr. Howe-Murphy integrates the ancient wisdom of the Enneagram with presence-based practices for everyday living and unexpected healing processes, to transform how we see and experience ourselves and the world around us. By shifting where we put our attention, our innate and evolutionary capacity for the deep intelligence of presence grows, and we move toward our soul's true longing and purpose. Tapping into our direct, in-the-moment experience leads us from a distorted sense of self and others to an authentic connection with what's true. By doing so, we move: - from inner inadequacy to real inner authority - from struggle to real inner peace - from being in the grip of personality to real inner liberation Used wisely, the Enneagram is a map of nine profound journeys from separateness to wholeness and love. In Deep Living, readers will find the reflection of their particular true nature.

Love Breathing
Eric Munro

A free ebook, “Love Breathing, Experience Divine Joy with Every Breath You Breathe” is available at www.howtoLoveGod.org.

A wellspring of God’s joy resides in everyone. Loving God with an open heart releases this wondrous joy into one’s life. Doesn’t it make sense then to practice loving God, so His joy becomes a natural part of the day? How, though, does one practice loving God? Love Breathing is one method that helps habitualize loving God to every breath. With a sincere, regular, loving God practice, enjoying divine communion becomes a natural and common experience; as natural and common as breathing.

There is a voice calling to us through the passageways of our normal everyday living, calling us to look and listen more deeply, calling us home to the fullness of our True Nature.

The art of Living Well & Dying Well responds to the questions: What is the good life? How do we live life to the fullest in the face of sin, suffering, and death? How do we die at peace?

Structured like a stational liturgy, Living Well & Dying Well calls us to stop and face the five spiritual crises-loss of faith, despair, impatience, pride, and greed-and five remedies-inspiration, hope, patience, humility, generosity -that are pivotal moments on the journey of life and death. Along with each of these remedies, O'Brien offers meditations, prayers, and a summons to communal support. This latter piece is crucial-living well and dying well requires us to love and accompany one another in our journeys.

Unstuck: Antidepressants have been declared to be “the treatment of choice” for depression. Each year, American doctors write more than 200 million prescriptions for people suffering from depression, as well as others who are inhibited, shy, anxious, in pain or unhappy. Yet, as we consume these medications (with their potentially disabling side effects) in record numbers, there is a growing body of evidence that they don’t work nearly as well as we’ve been led to believe.

Is There Another Way?.
In UNSTUCK, Dr. Gordon details an integrative approach that combines nutrition, meditation, exercise, self-expression and other techniques. He has taken 40 years of experience treating patients suffering from clinical depression, as well as anxiety, low energy, and ordinary unhappiness, and distilled it into an easy-to-use guide to understanding the causes of depression, alleviating its symptoms, and empowering people to take an active role in their own healing.
