This philosophical and spiritual look at justice begins, predictably, with a critique of the existing justice system but casts its net widely, examining the pervasive feelings of guilt and failure, the sense of separateness that all external reward-and-punishment systems create--whether in families, schools, businesses, or courts. We feel that we are being judged constantly; we even internalize messages that we are "no good." Perhaps worse, inner motivation is destroyed by rewards and punishments, so that creative expression wanes, a loss for individuals and society alike. The alternative is to create a justice system that is not from "outside in" but "inside out." Looking at astonishing examples among Native Americans, the authors show that many human cultures over thousands of years flourished without resorting to reward-punishment systems. Indigenous peoples, for instance, affirmed the uniqueness of each individual, crafting social forms that drew out that uniqueness. The results were cohesive societies that can serve as models for changing our fundamental approach to fairness today. Realizing that most readers will wonder what a different system might be, the authors turn to the restorative justice movement and its successes all over the world, providing examples of victim-offender mediation that will convert the most hardened skeptic. For a larger scale, they turn to the Ojibway-Cree Hollow Water community, which has revolutionized ideas of justice in Canada. Denise Breton is one of the finest philosophers writing today, able to present difficult subjects in engaging ways to the public. Now, with her co-author (her former editor at Hazelden), she has produced a definitive critique of our present socialization system, with its inaction in the face of suffering and its instilling of fear and guilt society-wide. To this "counterfeit" justice, they pose the alternative of rediscovering our souls, that powerful inner uniqueness that is the basis for true community.
SUPERANNO A synthesis of non-duality (advaita) and mysticism, 60 articles based on satsangs and a unique teaching called "The Path of Yoga, Beauty & Delight" serve as a tool on the path of courage, wisdom, and love and as an introduction into the mystery school of the Goddess. Original.
Inspired by the author's love of nature, fascination with the cosmos, and penchant for esoteric knowledge, "Things of That Nature" weaves together a golden alchemy of word art and vivid imagery. Through her unique mix of soulful depth and ethereal light, Dr. BethAnne joyfully blends wisdom and whimsy to explore timeless themes of spirituality, humanity, and the invisible journey of the heart. With a good dose of magic, moonlight, and mystery, "Things of That Nature" delights, provokes, and inspires the mystic heart in each of us.
Fate brought them together, fire will tear them apart. The uprising has begun. Mystic City is in the throes of revolution, led by Hunter, rebel mystic and Aria's true love. To save the city. Aria needs to find a weapon of great power: the heart of a dead mystic. But her enemies are also searching for it, and Aria's downfall is their deepest desire. Will the rebellion destroy the city or can a renegade heart save therm all?
The second MYSTIC CITY novel . . . it's Romeo & Juliet in a dystopic Manhattan. A city in flames. A trust betrayed. A perfect love destroyed. Has Aria lost Hunter, her one true love? Ever since rebellion broke out in Mystic City, pitting the ruling elite against the magic-wielding mystics, Aria has barely seen her boyfriend. Not surprising, since Hunter is the leader of the mystic uprising, and he'll do whatever it takes to win freedom for his people—even if that means using Aria. But Aria is no one's pawn. She believes she can bring the two warring sides together, save the city, and win back the Hunter she fell in love with. Before she can play peacemaker, though, Aria will need to find the missing heart of a dead mystic. The heart gives untold powers to whoever possesses it, but finding it means seeking out a fierce enemy whose deepest desire is for Aria to be gone—forever. "Recommended for dystopian fans."--School Library Journal
