The cutting edge of neurolinguistics meets the spiritual wisdom of the ages in a handbook of key words that literally rewire our brains. New discoveries in biology and the neurosciences are revealing how the structure of language-the words we think and speak-can actually change the way the neurons in our brains and hearts connect. But our ancestors understood this connection intuitively, thousands of years ago. They created specific word-patterns to provide comfort, healing, strength, and inner power in difficult times, and they encoded these powerful words in prayers, chants, mantras, hymns, and sacred writings to preserve them for future generations. Now beloved teacher and thought leader Gregg Braden cracks the code and puts these powerful words in your hands. Perfect as a pocket guide, a reference for spiritual study, or a gift to someone you love, this elegant, compact book contains Wisdom Codes that cut to the core of life's greatest tests, most challenging demands, and hardest lessons. You'll find chapters devoted to healing from loss and grief, facing your unspoken fears, finding certainty in the face of uncertain choices, and finding forgiveness, as well as ancient parables that offer a "fast track" to unraveling life's deepest mysteries. Each Wisdom Code-distilled from a quote, a scripture passage, or a parable-is accompanied by a brief discussion of what the code means, why it's important, and how to apply it in your life.
We are in the midst of a global crisis. This is not just danger: it is opportunity. With the new spirit arising in national and international politics, we can join together and seize the opportunity to create a better world. To sit with folded hands, waiting for the crisis to take its course is to entrust our destiny to the vagaries of fortune. To go back to where we were is not advisable, and may not even be possible. But attempting to go forward is a realistic task. The outcome of the global crisis is not foreclosed; it is sensitive to our intentions, actions and aspirations. The global crisis may prove to be a blessing in disguise. We have to cope with its dangers, but we can seize the opportunity it offers for creating a more united and sustainable world for ourselves and our children. The Worldshift Manual presented in this book is a practical guide to build a better world. It tells us how we can build it, and what the role of each of us is in building it. This is essential information in these critical times. "How We Can Build a Better World: The Worldshift Manual is a perfect blend of rock-solid science, spiritual philosophy and common sense woven into a practical guide to life in the post-pandemic world!" --Gregg Braden, author of The Wisdom Codes
A fascinating synthesis of ancient wisdom, modern medicine, scientific research, and personal experiences that proves that the human heart, not the brain, holds the secrets that link body, mind, and spirit. You know that the heart loves and feels, but did you know that the heart also thinks, remembers, communicates with other hearts, helps regulate immunity, and contains stored information that continually pulses through your body? In The Heart's Code, Dr. Paul Pearsall explains the theory and science behind energy cardiology, the emerging field that is uncovering one of the most significant medical, social, and spiritual discoveries of our time: The heart is more than just a pump; it conducts the cellular symphony that is the very essence of our being. Full of amazing anecdotes and data, The Heart's Code presents the latest research on cellular memory and the power of the heart's energy and explores what these breakthroughs mean about how we should live our lives. By unlocking the heart's code we can discover new ways of understanding human healing and consciousness and create a new model for living that leads to better health, happiness, and self-knowledge.
This study is an investigation of some of he similarities and differences between Novice and Master science teachers. The research focused on Novice and Master teachers' personal theories of learning as revealed through their perception and interpretation of a videotape of a teaching episode. The teaching episode was selected to illustrate teaching practices consonant with constructivist learning theory. Participants' interviews, during and following the video-clip, provided the sources of data. I transcribed all the interviews and analyzed them using both deductive and inductive analysis tools. Category development proceeded using both open-coding, for data-driven category development, as well as anticipated categories drawn from the three theoretical frameworks. Anticipated categories were drawn from research studies of teacher expertise, from the teacher development literature, and from cognitive science expert/novice research. Qualitative data analysis methods were used to determine Novice and Master teachers' perceptions and interpretations of the video-clip. The Novice teachers were pre-service science teachers. Some had completed student teaching and some were about to student teach. The Master teachers were Nationally Board Certified science teachers. The Novices were students in a reform-based teacher education program. They have had a variety of experiences with contemporary methods of instruction, but from this research, appear to straddle both a traditional approach to learning and a more constructivist approach. For both the Novices and the Master teachers, the best indicators of their personal theory of learning lies with the role they see for the teacher in the science classroom, the degree of responsibility for learning that is placed on students, and the role student misconceptions play in teaching and learning science.
A scholar and New York Times–bestselling author shares his shocking theory of an ancient language—found in the decoded elements of our DNA—that shines new light on the mysteries of existence What would it mean to discover an ancient language—a literal message—hidden within the DNA of life itself? What we once believed of our past is about to change. A coded message has been found within the molecules of life, deep within the DNA in each cell of our bodies. Through a remarkable discovery linking Biblical alphabets to our genetic code, the “language of life” may now be read as the ancient letters of a timeless message. Regardless of race, religion, heritage, or lifestyle, the message is the same in each cell of every woman, child, and man, past and present. Sharing all-new, fascinating research, Gregg Braden discusses the life-changing discovery that led him from a successful career in the aerospace and defense industries to an extensive 12-year study of the most sacred and honored traditions of humankind.
'We have to shift from a mindset of shame, which sees anxiety as evidence of brokenness, to a mindset of curiosity, which recognizes that anxiety is evidence of our sensitive heart, our imaginative mind and our soul's desire to grow towards wholeness.' Three million people are thought to suffer from anxiety in the UK, and it is an issue that affects a growing number of people across all ages. For anyone troubled by obsessive thoughts, insomnia and other manifestations of anxiety, counsellor Sheryl Paul offers shelter in the storm. In The Wisdom of Anxiety, Paul reveals that anxiety, like any emotion, is a signal - a clear bodily invitation to heal and renew your trust in your choices, self-image and core values. Weaving together practical exercises with personal stories, Paul offers medication-free approaches for accessing the gifts in different kinds of anxiety, and especially the anxiety summoned by life's transitions, for example a career change, becoming parents or becoming carers for loved ones. Chapters include recognising the symptoms of anxiety, its origins, the myth of 'normal', the expectation of happiness and a timeline of healing that includes exercises for the body and mind. There are also chapters on parenting in an age of anxiety and the vulnerability of connection and relationships.
