So many of us are on a spiritual path-we're cultivating presence, acknowledging our interconnections, assuming responsibility for our choices, and dropping old behavior patterns. Our spiritual awakening is happening in the midst of modern America where intense time pressure permeates the atmosphere, where there's no time for planning, priorities are out of whack, people constantly interrupt, and we're always putting out fires. Staying later, working more, or moving fasterwon't solve the dilemma. How do we live authentically in such an environment? Awakening in Time helps you manage your time sustainably, infuse your life with spirit moment by moment, and contribute to your own evolution and that of the world. You shift from doing more and doing it faster to engaging fully and appropriately with life. Time management becomes a spiritual, creative adventure full of satisfaction and sovereignty for yourself, and service to the greater good of all. Awakening In Time helps you take your life in hand, carefully and consciously, discovering new insights and trying out hands-on practices. You dig down to the root issues of Attention, Boundaries, and Choices-the ABCs of the new time management-where change has a better chance of taking hold and many of the surface problems resolve themselves. For example, getting distracted is an issue of Attention. When we learn how to maintain internal focus while responding to what's happening around us, distractions are less compelling. Feeling torn between several demands is a matter of Boundaries. Setting appropriately firm yet flexible boundaries allows us to consider demands from both the outside and the inside. Having too much to do in too little time is an issue of Choice. When we learn how to choose what serves both ourselves and the greater good, we can let go of the rest. As we practice the ABCs, we create a life of richness, complexity, satisfaction and simplicity.

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.

All cultures develop and transmit practices of somatic conditioning that predispose its members to relate to and experience the world in particular ways. A pivotal distinction between Enlightenment- and shamanistically-influenced methods of knowledge production involves styles of embodiment based on metaphysical and epistemological assumptions about the nature of reality, mind, body, experience and relationship. The Enlightenment worldview claims a separation of mind and body; privileges vision over other senses; denies the trustworthiness of subjectivity; upholds rationality and language as the manifestations of the highest forms of consciousness; and values objectivity and detachment as the legitimate stances in knowledge production. By contrast shamanic paradigms claim a unity of body and mind; the centrality of moving, sensing and perceiving in knowing; the privileging of subjective and intersubjective; an integrative use of the senses in producing knowledge; and explicit acknowledgment of sacred, biological, and feminine dimensions of reality. Contemporary scholars in phenomenology, pragmatism, consciousness studies, corporeal feminism, and indigenous philosophy express a strong degree of conceptual complementarity around the nature of experience and relationship, yet propose methodologies remaining firmly rooted within dualistic styles of embodiment. Only a few call for innovations in methodologies that train sensory, perceptual, and movement capacities of knowers toward a more relational, experientially grounded stance of knowing---an embodied praxis that reflects the character of a shamanic metaphysics and epistemological claims of these philosophical schools. Body-Mind Centering RTM is a local knowledge system that alleviates this methodological impasse, offering innovations in how to explore direct, embodied experience using touch and movement to establish and explore subjective and intercorporeal dimensions of experience and relationship. In many critical respects, Body-Mind CenteringRTM reflects core features of shamanic ways of knowing and presents significant methodological breakthroughs for training sensory and perceptual feedback mechanisms integrating first, second, and third-person corporeal approaches to knowing. Developed outside the academic realm primarily by women, BMC(TM) makes radical advances that transforms scholarly praxis, upholds the legitimacy of shamanic systems of knowledge, reveals proto-shamanic methods of knowing emergent from American embodied experience, and articulates how the unique embodied location of women gives rise to significant new knowledge.
