Greater Than the Sum of Our Parts

Summary

Explore your multifaceted mind - an invitation to personal healing and spiritual awakening Inside each of us, there are many distinct selves. “Though we’ve been raised to believe that healthy people have a single ‘self’”, explains Dr. Richard C. Schwartz, “acknowledging our multiplicity gives a far deeper awareness of how our minds actually work.” Dr. Schwartz’s pioneering Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy has become renowned in psychotherapy for its power to help us connect with and heal the many distinct facets - or parts - of our psyche. With Greater Than the Sum of Our Parts, he brings you a practical training course for using this method for your growth, well-being, and especially your spiritual journey.  Embracing your inner diversity as a path to wholeness One of the key lessons of IFS therapy is that there are no bad parts. “Trauma or life experience can cause our parts to take on burdens”, says Dr. Schwartz. “Yet when we bring the spiritual values of curiosity, gratitude, and kindness to these burdened parts, we discover incredible opportunities for healing and awakening.” Through instruction and guided meditations, Dr. Schwartz shows us how to engage even the most disturbing or unwanted parts of our psyche with openness and love - so we may unlock the hidden gifts and wisdom each part contains.  Many forms of therapy and even spiritual practice inadvertently put us in conflict with ourselves as we try to transcend or reject our parts. With Greater Than the Sum of Our Parts, Dr. Schwartz invites you to embrace each of your many parts with self-compassion - and discover the inclusive greater Self that is your true, divine nature.  PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Havoc

Summary

When a marriage of convenience turns into the passion of a lifetime… Holden “Havoc” Thompson My job as the leader of the Moonshine Task Force is my life. I eat, breathe, and sleep it. The men under my command mean the world to me. Knowing they count on my guidance has kept my demons at bay for longer than I care to admit.  The control I have over myself is an iron fist that sometimes threatens to squeeze the life out of me. What I want more than anything is to live again - let go of the hurt smothering every bit of light I have in this darkness. I don’t expect it to come in the form of a Moonshiner’s daughter needing my protection. Leighton Strather My whole life has been defined by who my family is. In the state of Alabama, we’re number-one, with a target on our backs. The danger and prestige isn’t for me. I don’t care about the money, and I care too much about the families we’ve ruined.  My brother and my dad are proud of it. They wear their arrest records like a badge of honor. Me? I want as far away from the lifestyle as I can get. It’s the only reason I ask Holden to marry me. At least that's what I tell myself. I never expect his whispered yes to cause such upheaval in my life. Even though I resist, I learn some havoc is good - and this one? It’s a whirlwind of lust, hope, and love, and all I can do is let it sweep me away.

Tank

Summary

Life isn’t promised; love isn’t easy; and relationships aren’t always clean, but everyone has their soulmate who is willing to forgive when it would be better to forget. Trevor “Tank” Trumbolt I never thought that in the blink of an eye my life could change, but it did. Cresting a hill, driving to my favorite fishing spot, I was hit head-on by a teenager with no regard for anyone’s life but his own. The recovery process has been hard, painful, and damn near beating me down. The bright spot? Blaze. Surviving the wreck has given me a second chance to make a life with her. Not knowing if I’ll ever be able to rejoin the Moonshine Task Force again has brought my world into focus. It’s made me realize what’s important. Blaze. Stella. My brothers. My sister. The ego that ran Blaze away before isn’t here any longer. What’s left is a man who’s holding his heart in his hands and a burning hope that once I’m healed she’ll still be around. Daphne “Blaze” Coleman There’s only been one person in the world who’s accepted me for who I am - from the fiery red of my hair and vibrant tattoos covering parts of my body to the smartness of my mouth and my desire to be matched in the bedroom. That man is Trevor Trumbolt. When he asked me to give up my job as an EMT because he saw the dangers I face one scary afternoon, it spelled the end for us.  Now that he’s been injured, he needs my help and my love. I’ll give it all freely, but in the end, I’m gonna need him to understand one thing about relationships. The give and take, love and sadness, pleasure and pain is a two-way street. He’s either in this with me or he’s not, but at the end of the day, I won’t let him boss me around. If there’s anything that can handle the steel of a tank - it’s the heat of a blaze.

Every 125 years, the four sinfully sexy ruling coven lords choose a new concubine from the human population. They handpick a woman based on blood type, often looking for one with the rarest blood type in the world: AB-negative. Only .06 percent of the population carries it. To vampires, it's the holy grail, the city of gold. To human women, it's a secret to be coveted, for the lords are known for their cruelty above all else. Too bad I was born with it. My blood is both gold and poison. It was easy to stay hidden until my 2th birthday, but from that year forward, every human on the planet is required to donate blood once per month. For me, that dreadful date is in two days. From that moment on, I will be a helpless fool in their cruel game of cat-and-mouse.  As soon as the coven leaders have me locked between their bloodied hands, I know they'll never let me go.
