Literary Nonfiction. Cultural Studies. "Although the prevailing winds of thought continually warn and admonish us about the unreliability of narratives and narrators and the need to distrust them, all of the texts collected here are stories, in one form or another. But, very importantly, they are also stories about stories that never give up this very basic and ancient rite of passage, in which any story is, at the very least, also a commentary about itself. What had been a very deep conflict ('if the poetry comes out in a variety of forms, there is always certain punishment for the betrayal of one form by another, ' as Morgan once wrote) finds resolution in the range and variety of the writing gathered here: stories, fable like pieces, fieldwork, anthropological investigation, literary criticism, scholarly research, reportage, and poetry"--from the afterword by Ammiel Alcalay.

Exploring Body-mind Centering

"At once profound, spiritual, and witty, Master of the Three Ways is a remarkable work about human nature, the essence of life, and how to live simply and with awareness. In three hundred and fifty-seven verses, the author, Hung Ying-ming a seventeenth-century Chinese sage explores good and evil, honesty and deception, wisdom and foolishness, and heaven and hell. He draws from the wisdom of the Three Creeds Taoism, Confucianism, and Zen Buddhism to impress upon us that by combining simple elegance with the ordinary, we can make our lives artistic and poetic. This sense, along with a particular understanding of Zen that makes art from the simple in everyday life, has permeated Chinese and Japanese culture to this day. The work is divided into two books. The first generally deals with the art of living in society and the second is concerned with man's solitude and contemplations of nature. These themes repeatedly spill over into each other, creating multiple levels of meaning."

In an attractive, oversized format, enlivened with illustrations, sidebar quotes, personal accounts, techniques to try, and profiles of leaders in the field, Discovering the Body's Wisdom is a basic resource for well-being and natural health. Body disciplines and therapies have enjoyed phenomenal growth in the past decade, becoming a major alternative to mainstream medicine and traditional psychotherapy. But with more than 100,000 practitioners and dozens of methods available in the United States alone, how can consumers choose the right one for themselves? Mirka Knaster's richly informative guide provides an overview of the principles and theories underlying the major Eastern and Western body therapies, or "bodyways." It shows readers how to befriend their own bodies, getting back in touch with their internal sources of health and wisdom. It also describes more than 75 individual approaches, answering such questions as: How does each therapy work? What can we expect from one session or a series? What are the reasons for selecting this method? How do we find a qualified practitioner? What, if any, are the "consumer-bewares"? From the Trade Paperback edition.
