Reveals the profound influence of the Denisovans and their hybrid descendants upon the flowering of human civilization around the world * Traces the migrations of the sophisticated Denisovans and their interbreeding with Neanderthals and early human populations more than 40,000 years ago * Shows how Denisovan hybrids became the elite of ancient societies, including the Adena mound-building culture * Explores the Denisovans' extraordinary advances, including precision-machined stone tools and jewelry, tailored clothing, and celestially-aligned architecture Ice-age cave artists, the builders at Goebekli Tepe, and the mound-builders of North America all share a common ancestry in the Solutreans, Neanderthal-human hybrids of immense sophistication, who dominated southwest Europe before reaching North America 20,000 years ago. Yet, even before the Solutreans, the American continent was home to a powerful population of enormous stature, giants remembered in Native American legend as the Thunder People. New research shows they were hybrid descendants of an extinct human group known as the Denisovans, whose existence has now been confirmed from fossil remains found in a cave in the Altai region of Siberia. Tracing the migrations of the Denisovans and their interbreeding with Neanderthals and early human populations in Asia, Europe, Australia, and the Americas, Andrew Collins and Greg Little explore how the new mental capabilities of the Denisovan-Neanderthal and Denisovan-human hybrids greatly accelerated the flowering of human civilization over 40,000 years ago. They show how the Denisovans displayed sophisticated advances, including precision-machined stone tools and jewelry, tailored clothing, celestially-aligned architecture, and horse domestication. Examining evidence from ancient America, the authors reveal how Denisovan hybrids became the elite of the Adena mound-building culture, explaining the giant skeletons found in Native American burial mounds. The authors also explore how the Denisovans' descendants were the creators of a cosmological death journey and viewed the Milky Way as the Path of Souls. Revealing the impact of the Denisovans upon every part of the world, the authors show that, without early man's hybridization with Denisovans, Neanderthals, and other yet-to-be-discovered hominid populations, the modern world as we know it would not exist.
We're all on a search for happiness, but we're looking in the wrong places. Everyone looks externally to find contentment, we think material possessions will unlock our happiness. A Monk's Guide to Happiness explains how and why we need to look within, and connect to our true essence, in order to find peace. Everyone has the potential to be happy, after all, we're all 'hardwired' for happiness. But how do we get there? By meditating. Not just in the morning, but throughout the day by introducing micro moments so we never drop the mindfulness ball, even when we're busy. Meditation is more than just a stress-reduction tool or a relaxation therapy, it is the key to finding long-lasting happiness. Gelong Thubten, a Buddhist monk who has worked with everyone from Silicon Valley entrepreneurs to Ruby Wax and Benedict Cumberbatch, explores the theme of happiness in his debut book and explains how to bring meditation into our busy 21st century lives with simple exercises. 'Thubten is a very generous and loving monk who writes with the lived honesty and humour of someone who has experienced the wisdom he shares. His book is full of inspiration but also the pragmatism needed to form a sustainable practice. Thubten clearly illustrates why we all need meditation and mindfulness in our lives.' - Benedict Cumberbatch

Elke mens het 'n eie persoonlikheid en 'n spesifieke geaardheid. Dit is wat ons individue maak. 'n Mens se persoonlikheidstipe maak jou vatbaar vir sekere hebbelikhede. Volgens die verklarende handwoordeboek van die Afrikaanse taal is 'n hebbelikheid 'n "(hinderlike) gewoonte, aanwensel, neiging". Besonder individualistiese mense is dikwels interessante mense. Hulle hoekigheid en andersheid is kleurvol. Hulle woede of spoggery of skindery of opneukery of dwarsheid of ondersteboheid is die sout en peper van menslikheid. Hierdie titel gaan egter oor geaardhede wat vasval in sekere hebbelikhede dermate dat dit die persoonlikheid oorheers. Dit word dan iets wat ander mense kwaad maak of irriteer en dus 'n karaktertrek wat die grens van aanvaarbaarheid oorskry. Hoewel ander mense dit aanvanklik verduur of dit selfs interessant kan vind, word dit later vir hulle 'n ergernis. Dit gaan hier oor die "te" van 'n faset van mens se geaardheid. Te jaloers, nederig, aggressief, skynheilig of wat ook al. Gewoonlik het dit 'n vernietigende uitwerking op so 'n mens se verhoudings. Hierdie title is gebaseer op die kennis wat De Klerk van sy eie hebbelikhede opgedoen het, op 'n leeftyd se saamwees met ander mense, en op ervarings in die spreekkamer waar hy vir baie jare as sielkundige terapeut probeer help het met die identifikasie en tempering van hebbelikhede wat te erg geword het. Plek-plek word gevallestudies uit sy spreekkamer gebruik.
A groundbreaking study of the lifelong effects of near-death experiences in the newly born, babies, toddlers, and children up to age five * Draws on interviews with nearly 400 childhood experiencers, both fully matured and young, as well as more than 40 years of NDE research involving over 5,000 people * Reveals how those who experience a near-death state at a young age are profoundly affected for the rest of their lives, including developing psychic and intuitive abilities, "wisdom beyond their years," and a pervasive feeling of being "homesick for heaven" * Investigates the wide-awake consciousness of babies being born, womb memories, and the experience of being alive on the other side of death In this major study of near-death experiences with the newly born, babies, toddlers, and children up to age five, NDE expert P. M. H. Atwater reveals how those who experience a near-death state or other worlds at a very young age are profoundly affected for the rest of their lives, including developing psychic and intuitive abilities, higher intelligence and "wisdom beyond their years," and a pervasive feeling of being "homesick for heaven." Drawing on interviews with nearly 400 childhood experiencers, both fully matured and young, Atwater explores their accounts of what it is like to be alive on the other side of death as well as what makes them different from others, complemented by a deep analysis of statistical evidence from her more than 40 years of NDE research involving more than 5,000 people. She shows how, in contrast to adult experiencers, child and infant experiencers of near-death states cannot compare "before" with "after" as adults do, because they don't have a "before." The world of these "forever angels" is the life continuum, a stream of consciousness that has always existed and always will. Integrating "where they once were" with "where they now are" is a lifelong challenge. Examining the forever angels' memories of the womb, birth, early childhood, and the other world, Atwater investigates the wide-awake consciousness of babies being born, the vivid recall of mature childhood near-death experiencers, and how memory of the life-continuum never fades, nor does the desire to go back.

A newly revised and updated edition of the classic guide to reframing our view of ADHD and embracing its benefits * Explains that people with ADHD are not disordered or dysfunctional, but simply "hunters in a farmer's world"--possessing a unique mental skill set that would have allowed them to thrive in a hunter-gatherer society * Offers concrete non-drug methods and practices to help hunters--and their parents, teachers, and managers--embrace their differences, nurture creativity, and find success in school, at work, and at home * Reveals how some of the world's most successful people can be labeled as ADHD hunters, including Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Edison, and Andrew Carnegie With 10 percent of the Western world's children suspected of having Attention Deficit Disorder, or ADHD, and a growing number of adults self-diagnosing after decades of struggle, the question must be raised: How could Nature make such a "mistake"? In this updated edition of his groundbreaking classic, Thom Hartmann explains that people with ADHD are not abnormal, disordered, or dysfunctional, but simply "hunters in a farmer's world." Often highly creative and single-minded in pursuit of a self-chosen goal, those with ADHD symptoms possess a unique mental skill set that would have allowed them to thrive in a hunter-gatherer society. As hunters, they would have been constantly scanning their environment, looking for food or threats (distractibility); they'd have to act without hesitation (impulsivity); and they'd have to love the high-stimulation and risk-filled environment of the hunting field. With our structured public schools, office workplaces, and factories those who inherit a surplus of "hunter skills" are often left frustrated in a world that doesn't understand or support them. As Hartmann shows, by reframing our view of ADHD, we can begin to see it not as a disorder, but as simply a difference and, in some ways, an advantage. He reveals how some of the world's most successful people can be labeled as ADHD hunters and offers concrete non-drug methods and practices to help hunters--and their parents, teachers, and managers--embrace their differences, nurture creativity, and find success in school, at work, and at home. Providing a supportive "survival" guide to help fine tune your natural skill set, rather than suppress it, Hartmann shows that each mind--whether hunter, farmer, or somewhere in between--has value and great potential waiting to be tapped.
