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

In the classic bestseller, Introduction to Tantra, Lama Yeshe offered a profound and wonderfully clear glimpse into the sophisticated practices of Tibetan Buddhist tantra. This present book, the last major teachings of this great lama, opens up the world of advanced practices for Highest Yoga Tantra initiates in much the same way his earlier work opened up the world of tantra in general. Following Je Tsongkhapa's (1357-1419 C.E.) text Having the Three Convictions, Lama Yeshe introduces the renowned Six Yogas of Naropa, focusing mainly on the first of these six, the practice of inner fire (tummo). Mastery of inner fire quickly brings the mind to its most refined and penetrating state--the experience of clear light, an extra-ordinarily powerful state of mind that is unequaled in its ability to directly realize ultimate reality. Lama Yeshe felt that twentieth-century Westerners could easily grasp the often misunderstood ideas of this esoteric tradition: "We really need tantra these days because there is a tremendous explosion of delusion and distraction.and we need the atomic energy of inner fire to blast us out of our delusion." Lama Yeshe's aim was for his students to actually taste the experience of inner fire rather than merely gain an intellectual understanding. Lama's own realization of the transformative power of these practices comes through, inspiring his students to discover for themselves their own capacity for inexhaustible bliss.

The past never stays buried at Bliss House... Rainey Bliss Adams' perfect life came to an end one spring afternoon, when her husband was killed in an explosion that horrifically burned their fourteen year-old daughter, Ariel. Desperate for a new start, she takes Ariel to live in the beautiful house in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains where the Bliss family has lived for over a century. Once there, Ariel starts to mysteriously heal. But as a series of tragedies begins to unfold, it becomes clear that a darkness lurks behind the dignified faade of Bliss House - one which will drive both mother and daughter apart, as each is forced to confront its evil on her own...

Follow Your Bliss is a career-life planning manual of an entirely different sort, written by a traditionally trained career counselor who augments her skills with intensive training in the expressive arts therapies. Career-life planning, according to this author, begins with the heart and soul, rather than the intellect, and this book is filled with exercises that do just that. Unlike dry interest inventories, the exercises guide the reader through an easy-to-follow process of self discovery and decision making which always begins with the state of the soul and only later applies the intellect to understand the implications and decide on the best action to take. The book's format permits readers immediate involvement and participation, with built-in space for journaling and responding to questions. The clearly written material can be used by individual job seekers, groups working together on job searches, and individuals in counseling situations. The text is also suitable as a training tool for career counselors.
