Wie findet man das wahre Glück? Wie lässt sich Erfolg wirklich bemessen? Und wie geht man mit den Herausforderungen des Alltags wie Wut, Trauer und der Frage nach dem Sinn des Ganzen um? Was große Geister wie George Washington, Friedrich der Große, Weltklassesportler oder Top-Performer längst für sich entdeckt haben, liegt mit "Der tägliche Stoiker" erstmals gesammelt vor. New York Times-Bestsellerautor Ryan Holiday und Stephen Hanselman haben das Wissen der Stoiker in 366 zeitlose Lektionen verpackt und zeigen, dass die Philosophie des Stoizismus nicht nur zeitlos, sondern gerade für unsere hektische und unsichere Zeit ein Segen ist. Weisheit, Mut, Gerechtigkeitssinn und Selbstbeherrschung sowie Gelassenheit lassen sich erlernen und helfen uns, in der zunehmenden Komplexität unserer Welt zu bestehen. Die uralten Weisheiten der Stoiker, gesammelt und kommentiert, unterstützen bei diesen alltäglichen Herausforderungen.

From the author of 365 Tao and a leading authority on Taoist practice and philosophy comes a completely innovative translation of the classic text of Eastern wisdom, the I Ching. The I Ching, or Book of Changes, is an ancient manual for divining the future. Its basic text is traditionally attributed to the Chinese King Wen, the Duke of Zhou, and the philosopher Confucius. By tossing coins, rolling dice, using a computer, or, more traditionally, counting yarrow stalks, one can create a seemingly random combination of heads or tails, odd or even, yin or yang, to construct six lines (for example, solid for odd numbers or broken for even numbers). These six lines make up a hexagram that provides advice, predictions, and answers to questions on topics from love and career to family and finance. While known mostly as a tool of divination, the I Ching is also a repository of centuries of wisdom. Most of the existing translations offer either dense, scholarly commentary or little more than fortune-cookie platitudes, but in The Living I Ching Deng Ming-Dao takes a more holistic approach. His new translation recovers the true wisdom and philosophy of this ancient classic, so that the I Ching becomes more than just a book of fortune-telling -- it becomes a manual for living.

Author Andrew Fitz-Gibbon writes: These musings are something of a window on my spiritual and philosophical journey. The journey did not begin recently, nor does it end with the last of these reflections. These serve as but a glimpse into my personal odyssey. Though these reflections are not in any way polished philosophy nor systematic theology, the careful reader will be able to piece together what I think about metaphysics (what is the case), epistemology (how we know what we think we know), ethics (how we ought to live) and aesthetics (what is beautiful and why). I comment also on understandings of God, Christ, Christianity, the Buddha, Daoism, and interfaith dialogue.

Die Göttin in sich entdecken. Älterwerden ist nicht gleichbedeutend mit dem Verlust der Gesundheit, Schönheit oder dem Abgleiten in kulturelle Bedeutungslosigkeit. Niemand könnte das eindringlicher, überzeugender und leidenschaftlicher postulieren als die weltweit renommierte Gynäkologin und Bestsellerautorin Christiane Northrup. Bereits mit »Frauenkörper, Frauenweisheit« und »Weisheit der Wechseljahre« ermutigte sie unzählige Frauen, ihrem ureigenen intuitiven (Körper-) Wissen zu vertrauen. Nun führt sie in das Geheimnis der Alterslosigkeit ein. Dabei geht es ihr um nichts weniger als die Emanzipation von allen Vorurteilen der Gesellschaft gegenüber dem Älterwerden, von den Erwartungen »der anderen« und auch von den Einflüsterungen der Ärzte. Sie fordert dazu auf, endlich all das zu tun, was Frauen zu alterslosen Göttinnen macht: die Selbstheilungskräfte stärken, optimale Ernährung, u. a. mit Superfoods, die Freizeit erfüllend gestalten, sich der spirituellen Dimension öffnen – um maximal sinnlich, vital und freudvoll zu leben.

Der bekannte buddhistische Weisheitslehrer verbindet auf einzigartige Weise neueste wissenschaftliche Erkenntnisse mit der spirituellen Praxis des Buddhismus. Glück ist kein Zufall, sondern jeder kann es lernen. Matthieu Ricard gibt revolutionäre neue Einblicke in das, was wir als Glück im Leben bezeichnen, und zeigt, wie wir den Geist so verändern können, dass wir tiefes Glück empfinden. Glück entsteht, wissenschaftlich messbar, aus einem inneren Gleichgewicht von Körper und Geist. Es ist das Resultat einer inneren Reifung, die ganz allein von uns abhängt und die wir Tag für Tag verfolgen können. Konkrete Übungen und Meditationsanleitungen am Ende jedes Kapitels weisen einen klaren Weg zu einem glücklicheren Leben. Das Vorwort schrieb Daniel Goleman, Autor der Bestseller "Emotionale Intelligenz" und "Die heilende Kraft der Gefühle".
