Late in his life, Carl Jung began to build a castle on the shores of Lake Zurich. Into the stones of the castle’s walls he carved symbols, images, and words significant to his own inner journey. When the first tower was complete, he spent long periods of time there in reflection, contemplating images from myths, dreams, art, as well as words from sacred texts. Much like the stones Jung used to build his castle, the poems in this collection have personal meaning and significance to the author, representing aspects of the life she has built. Heartfelt and beautiful, Stone by Stone is a collection of poems that depict the author’s different experiences and thoughts, and the personalities she has met along her life’s journey. It creates an invitation for reflection. In this collection of poems, you might just find a few stones that can be incorporated into the tower you are building; the one in which you will live your truest life.

The Magnificent History in New England's Stone Walls

There once may have been 250,000 miles of stone walls in America's Northeast, stretching farther than the distance to the moon. They took three billion man-hours to build. And even though most are crumbling today, they contain a magnificent scientific and cultural story-about the geothermal forces that formed their stones, the tectonic movements that brought them to the surface, the glacial tide that broke them apart, the earth that held them for so long, and about the humans who built them. Stone walls layer time like Russian dolls, their smallest elements reflecting the longest spans, and Thorson urges us to study them, for each stone has its own story. Linking geological history to the early American experience, Stone by Stone presents a fascinating picture of the land the Pilgrims settled, allowing us to see and understand it with new eyes.

Stone by Stone examines the practices of hunter-gatherers. From the imaginative acts of drawing on cave walls and sculpting wood and limestone, the world's first artists imbued their works with the quest for survival, suggesting that through the physical manifestation of the art object, life would follow suit. More than a record of events, these works looked ahead to shape a future marked by uncertainty. Following this tradition, Taj Forer's photographs depict practices of contemporary bushcraft survival skills to re-imagine the future.

The case against young Travis Morgan is simple: he walked into his father's house and shot the man at his desk in front of two witnesses. The fact that the murdered man was not his father is immaterial: he still killed a man in cold blood. Although he admits to a passionate hatred and fear of his father, Travis swears he is innocent. This is the case attorney Barbara Holloway is presented with. The trouble is she believes Travis, even though the eyewitness accounts appear irrefutable. As Barbara digs deeper, the case explodes into a dangerous conspiracy, causing Frank, Barbara's father and part-time associate, to hire a bodyguard to protect her.

Juli 1914. Vivian Rose Spencer hastet über die antiken Pflastersteine den Hang hinauf, unter Feigen und Zypressen hindurch, und stolpert fast unversehens in ihre erste Entdeckung. Tahsin Bey, ein Freund ihres Vaters, hat sie eingeladen, an den Ausgrabungen von Labraunda teilzunehmen. An diesem sagenhaften Ort, in dem strahlenden Licht Kariens lässt sie die strengen Konventionen ihrer Heimat weit hinter sich und wird auch Tahsin Bey auf ganz neue Weise begegnen. Juli 1915. Der junge Paschtune Qayyum Gul kehrt verwundet aus dem Krieg zurück; Vivian folgt einer Spur ihres verschwundenen Geliebten. In einem Zug nach Peschawar treffen die beiden aufeinander, nicht ahnend, dass ihre Geschicke sich auf immer verbinden und sie eines Tages, in der Straße der Geschichtenerzähler, wieder zusammenführen werden. Kamila Shamsie hat einen fesselnden Roman über Liebe und Verrat, über Unterdrückung und das Streben nach Freiheit, geschrieben. Voll sinnlicher Details – die blühenden Gärten Peschawars, der Geruch nach Tabak, Erde und Feigen – ist »Die Straße der Geschichtenerzähler« ein Stück erfahrbare Geschichte, ein leidenschaftlicher, dringlicher Roman.

From Stone to Flesh

A Short History of the Buddha

We have come to admire Buddhism for being profound but accessible, as much a lifestyle as a religion. The credit for creating Buddhism goes to the Buddha, a figure widely respected across the Western world for his philosophical insight, his teachings of nonviolence, and his practice of meditation. But who was this Buddha, and how did he become the Buddha we know and love today? Leading historian of Buddhism Donald S. Lopez Jr. tells the story of how various idols carved in stone—variously named Beddou, Codam, Xaca, and Fo—became the man of flesh and blood that we know simply as the Buddha. He reveals that the positive view of the Buddha in Europe and America is rather recent, originating a little more than a hundred and fifty years ago. For centuries, the Buddha was condemned by Western writers as the most dangerous idol of the Orient. He was a demon, the murderer of his mother, a purveyor of idolatry. Lopez provides an engaging history of depictions of the Buddha from classical accounts and medieval stories to the testimonies of European travelers, diplomats, soldiers, and missionaries. He shows that centuries of hostility toward the Buddha changed dramatically in the nineteenth century, when the teachings of the Buddha, having disappeared from India by the fourteenth century, were read by European scholars newly proficient in Asian languages. At the same time, the traditional view of the Buddha persisted in Asia, where he was revered as much for his supernatural powers as for his philosophical insights. From Stone to Flesh follows the twists and turns of these Eastern and Western notions of the Buddha, leading finally to his triumph as the founder of a world religion.

The Road Within is a very different kind of travel book, a venture into the hidden territories of the human spirit and heart. A book of transformation, of lessons learned, maps drawn and burned, and spiritual blessings bestowed by that great and hard teacher: travel. It will show you what the great mystics and saints have always known—that you are closer to yourself, the world, and the divine, than you can possibly imagine, and that wondrous things await you on your journeys. In this book you will discover the Garden of Paradise in the human heart with Natalie Goldberg; get swept up in a dance of dervishes with Paul William Roberts in Cairo; and feel the chill that accompanies Annie Dillard with a long-time Communist Party member in China. You will meet an angel in Paris, have strange sexual encounters on Asian seas, play a vomiting game in an African initiation ceremony, get a taste of satori, and discover the strange and haunting beauty of Mother Meara in Germany. You will go on a worldwide quest at the invitation of a Shinto priest and have your sins forgiven, but most important, you will encounter the ultimate stranger—you.
