In ever-growing gatherings worldwide, the revered teacher Mooji has opened the eyes of thousands through his rare ability to shine light on the ineffable with uncommon clarity, humour and warmth. Now, in Vaster Than Sky, Greater Than Space, Mooji invites and inspires readers everywhere to discover the true essence from which we all arise. Throughout the book he addresses various questions that come up for seekers, such as: How do I find peace, joy, love and happiness? Is it really possible for an ordinary person with a job and family to attain enlightenment? Are intimate relationships a help or a hindrance to awakening? I don't believe in God, and I don't consider myself a devotional type of person, but the word Truth resonates with me - are your teachings relevant to me? You use the phrase 'timeless presence'. What does it mean? How can anything be timeless? How does one transcend personal conditioning and suppressed emotions, and so come to lasting freedom? If we are essentially free, why does it seem so difficult and distant, so remote or rare to realise the Truth? Through our own earnest search for truth, Mooji helps us arrive at the answers, not by offering concepts but by leading us back to our hidden yet inherent knowing.
A Journey to Liberation

Category: Body, Mind & Spirit
The traumas that accumulate over a persons lifetime are varied and numerous. Sexual assault. Surgical trauma. Car accidents and near misses. Serious illness. War. Traumatic experiences, those remembered or forgotten, can manifest as pain, impaired mobility, addiction, illness, fear, depression, anxiety, lack of confidence, and other suboptimal conditions. Yet regardless of the traumatic event(s) of our lives, human beings have a tremendous capacity to heal. In the tradition of classic spiritually-based healing texts such as Louise Hays Heal Your Body and White Eagles Heal Thyself, Dr. Karen Ibarguens HEALING HIDDEN WOUNDS: A JOURNEY TO LIBERATION offers readers a window into how the subtle energies of the mind and body work together to create physical and emotional harmony. As Dr. Karen walks readers through her own journey of self-discovery and healing from childhood sexual abuse, she connects readers to a rich legacy of meditation and mind-body consciousness that opens the heart, quiets the mind, and creates a foundation for healing.The traumas we experience need not keep us from our destiny. Indeed, they can lead to liberation. Part memoir, part self-help book, part travelers guide to the mystical world of spiritual and energetic healing, HEALING HIDDEN WOUNDS is like nothing else out there. In addition to offering readers substantial food for thought, this book offers practical ways to bring the ideas to life. It all starts with taking two minutes out of your day to find a quiet spot, sit comfortably, relax and breathe. Karen guides the reader as a process of self-inquiry naturally unfolds. I couldnt put this book down. HEALING HIDDEN WOUNDS is a must read for anyone interested in the journey to personal liberation. -Carine Feyten Ph.D., Chancellor of Texas Womans University Dr. Karen Ibarguen D.C. is certified in chiropractic clinical neurology, applied kinesiology, naturopathic medicine, reiki, and homeopathy. Her interest in somatic responses to trauma stems from her personal experience and those of the many patients she has helped to achieve more optimal health and well-being during 17 years of private practice in North Texas. To explore holistic healing modalities and their legacies within ancient traditions, she has spent time with Kogi elders in South America, practiced Karma Yoga in Portugal, worked with a modern-day shaman, taken refuge with the venerable Lama Dorjee Rinpoche, and walked the sacred Tibetan ground of Mount Kailash. She has come to realize through self-inquiry how meditation and other energy practices unite in the pursuit of health and healing. Dr. Ibarguen shares these techniques with her patients and others in trainings and healing workshops. More information can be found on her website at www.KarenIbarguen.com.
400 Years of Exploring the Cosmos
Author: Donald G. York,Owen Gingerich,Shuang-Nan Zhang
Publisher: Taylor & Francis
Some 400 years after the first known patent application for a telescope by Hans Lipperhey, The Astronomy Revolution: 400 Years of Exploring the Cosmos surveys the effects of this instrument and explores the questions that have arisen out of scientific research in astronomy and cosmology. Inspired by the international New Vision 400 conference held in Beijing in October 2008, this interdisciplinary volume brings together expanded and updated contributions from 26 esteemed conference speakers and invited others. Looking beyond questions of science to the role of moral responsibility in human civilizations, the book offers the unique vantage points of contributions from both Eastern and Western cultures. Extensively illustrated in full color, this book consists of six parts. Aimed at young scientists, the first part presents perspectives on creativity and technology in scientific discovery. In the second part, contributors examine how the telescope has impacted our knowledge of the Universe—from the formation of galaxies to the death of stars. The third part of the book outlines some of the challenges we face in understanding dark matter, dark energy, black holes, and cosmic rays, and the fourth part discusses new technologies that will be useful in attacking new and unresolved questions. The fifth part of the book examines the intellectual impact that the telescope has had on society in China and in the West. The book concludes with an investigation of "big questions": What is the origin of the laws of physics as we know them? Are these laws the same everywhere? How do these scientific laws relate to the moral laws of society? Does what we know depend on cultural ways of asking the questions? Is there life elsewhere? And what about the questions that science cannot answer? Celebrating the historical significance of the telescope, this unique book seeks to inspire all those involved or interested in the enterprise of astronomy as humankind continues the quest to unveil the heavens.
