Award winning author
An essential and inspirational work that conveys the inexpressible truth of existence — “We are pure awareness at centre, human in appearance.”
Abiding in the very heart of humanity is the key to true peace and happiness. Each of the twenty-five chapters presents a voyage toward our inner, universal self, bringing a deeper and wider perspective along the way. Exploring the shores of human-beingness ever more deeply, we realise, “soul is the lighthouse—the light that guides us safely home.” By simply experiencing ourselves without distraction of mind, we see through personal drama to our true nature.
Illustrated in color by Amanda J. Clark, an international artist and illustrator deeply influenced by myths, fairy tales and folklore, her use of colors enchants the viewer with their celestial beauty.
Pure awareness is an art that requires practice to quiet the surface of mind and still the moving waters of our emotional seas. Awakening is recognising all appearances are illuminated from the light that shines in our heart.
We stand at the bow of our ship. The sky is clear, the sea is calm — "...Now voyager sail thou forth to seek and find." —Walt Whitman

As he seeks to dismantle his misery, he dreams about a Mayan warrior who stabs him to death, and he sees a woman whom he's barely seen before. Upon waking, Trister seeks her counsel in order to understand why she, of all people, appeared in his dream. He wrestles with self-doubt as she taps into the ruins of his shattered soul where she comprehends that he has been mangled by more than merely self-rejection. He fears he will never find happiness and will die as a nomad, ever wandering the world in search of something he can hardly define. [close]

An early reader said of No church in the Wild: "This was awesome! I loved it first and foremost as a 200-page love letter to San Francisco, which I think especially for SF ex-pats is such a welcome read." [close]

What can the human brain and its relationship to the internet…more
What can the human brain and its relationship to the internet tell us about our society, our technologies, and our businesses? A lot, as it turns out. The internet today is a virtual replica of the brain, and the networks that leverage it grow and collapse in ways that are easily predictable if you understand the brain and other biological networks.
We’re living in the midst of a networking revolution. All of the major technology innovations of the 21st century – social networking, cloud computing, search engines, and crowdsourcing, to name a few – leverage the internet and are thus bound by the rules of networks. We’ve seen the exponential growth of these technologies, and they’ve led to a more efficient and tightly connected world. But what many people don’t realize is that all networks eventually reach a breakpoint and collapse. This happens in the brain, it happens in nature, it happened to MySpace, and it will happen to Facebook and Google. It is critical to understand where the breakpoint is in the networks you use in order to achieve optimum success.
Navigating the world of new technologies today can be like walking through a minefield unless you know the path. Imagine what you could do with a roadmap for where things are headed?
In this fascinating look at the future of business and technology, neuroscientist and entrepreneur Jeff Stibel shows how the brain can act as a guide to understanding the future of the internet and the constellation of businesses and technologies that run on it. He’ll show how leaders like Marissa Mayer are using artificial intelligence to literally remake Yahoo! and how startups like oDesk and Kickstarter are using crowdsourcing, the next wave of revolutionary technology, to create something much larger and “smarter” than the sum of their parts.
Stibel offers a fresh perspective about the future of business and technology in a candid and engaging manner. [close]
by Christopher Kul-Want, Piero
Continental philosophy was initiated amid the revolutionary ferment of the 18th century, philosophers such as Kant and Hegel confronting the extremism of the time with theories that challenged the very formation of individual and social consciousness.
Covering the great philosophers of the modern and postmodern eras – from Nietzsche, Heidegger, Derrida and Deleuze right to up Agamben and Žižek – and philosophical movements from German idealism to deconstruction and feminism – Christopher Kul-Want and Piero brilliantly elucidate some of the most thrilling and powerful ideas ever to have been discussed.

“Well documented, clear language discusses Scripture with a real-world perspective of Christianity; a must-read for all who profess to be Christian.” – Publishers Weekly , April 2013.
Banned from many Christian bookstores! If you dare, read what Christian leaders don’t want you to know.
“Scott S. Haraburda’s perceptions, insights AND research in delivering his latest body of work entitled Christian Controversies: Seeking the Truth goes far beyond commendable. His scientific approach toward his theories resonate the accomplishments of his research as all of his propositions are properly foot-noted and supported with a wealth of factual information in support of his statements and views. Dr. Haraburda is not only a brave individual to pontificate his personal beliefs and understanding of Christianity, but has supported every theory with superb fact-checks and footnoting. He has delivered the complexities of this topic in understandable terminology and deserves accolades for writing such an intriguing read from cover-to-cover. Christian Controversies: Seeking the Truth is a solid work that provides ample opportunity for the reader to open his/her mind and consider a different view.” – Feathered Quill , May 2013. [close]

These are the ingredients in my ice-cream cone, along with Soul Energy, Reincarnation, Karma, Detachment, Vegetarianism, Astrology, Meditation, and the Ego. I believe these concepts make some sense based on the tenets of logic and science. Even to a skeptic like me.
But I am entitled to change my mind at any time. If tomorrow someone were to show me some indisputable, miracle-backed proof that their way is the correct way and I will go to Hell if I don't squat on one foot chanting 3.5 times a week, I will happily throw away my chocolate cone and switch to strawberry.
For now, here is what I believe, and why . . . [close]

All Things Painful is a collection of words delivered through the mind, heart, and spirit of a man who, like so many others, has been forced to come to terms with who he is, who he was, and where to go from here. Ranging from thought-provoking verses that could double as lyrics on a rock album to rhythmic stories about luck, love, life, and death to Bushido-inspired lamentations, it conveys a message that is almost completely devoid of faith, yet ultimately full of hope.

Levi Levy has no idea how powerful his thoughts are and that his life depends upon them. That's because thought-sifting isn't taught in schools in the Earth Dimension. But everything changes when Levi is invited to participate in a remarkable program in the 11th Dimension, and he begins to discover not only the secret to getting exactly what he wants from life, but the true meaning of magic.
From the unexpected way he enters the dimension to the thrilling curriculum and eccentric faculty at his unconventional school,Levi finds himself questioning everything he’s learned about life, and closer to unraveling his true identity.
High school sophomore, Levi Levy, has no idea how powerful his thoughts are and that his life depends upon them. He’s never been to the 11th Dimension, befriended ghosts or flown with carnivorous clawcons. All Levi knows is an uninspiring life with his mother, father and championship wrestling addicted brother, Darryl. Tired of the monotony of school and homework Levi asks for more.
And that’s exactly what he’s about to get when he receives a prestigious invitation to a mysterious realm he never imagined existed. There he discovers not only friends, telepathic aerial sports, and wild adventure around every corner, but the secret to making all his dreams come true…if Levi can learn to direct his thoughts and survive the unpredictable encounter.
