    ABC News anchor Dan Harris used to think that meditation was for people who collect crystals, play Ultimate Frisbee, and use the word namaste without irony. After he had a panic attack on live television, he went on a strange and circuitous journey that ultimately led him to embrace a practice he'd long considered ridiculous. Harris discovered that meditation made him more focused and less yanked around by his emotions. According to his wife, it also made him significantly less annoying.

    As consumers of medical news, how can we know whether the article we just read is based on solid science or is just an ill-informed attempt to grab readers? Professor Roy Benaroch of Emory University School of Medicine provides just the direction we need. In 24 fascinating lectures that address the most important health issues of our day - heart health, obesity, longevity, the opioid crisis, the stigma of mental illness, alternative medicine approaches, toxins in the environment, and more - Dr. Benaroch tells us how to recognize the good reporting and the bad.

    In Future Perfect, Victoria Loustalot draws on her own personal experience to launch a broader inquiry into the phenomena of psychics, shamans, astrologers, and their fans. Through historical documents and interviews with clairvoyants, seers, and their believers, Victoria opens herself up to the modern mystical complex in cultures and cities around the globe. She pays close attention to what they have to tell us about how we choose to live, what we might be missing out on in the process, and what in the world we’re supposed to do with all that information.

    At the end of her best-selling memoir Eat, Pray, Love, Elizabeth Gilbert fell in love with Felipe, a Brazilian-born man of Australian citizenship who'd been living in Indonesia when they met.

But providence intervened one day in the form of the United States government....

    En este libro, que abarca desde los caníbales de Atapuerca hasta el talante del presidente Zapatero, no he pretendido escribir la historia que escribiría el pueblo, ya que el pueblo es ágrafo por naturaleza, sino, más bien, una historia de España contada para escépticos que no creen en la historia de España. No pretendo que sea veraz, justa y desapasionada, porque ninguna historia lo es, pero por lo menos intentaré que no mienta ni tergiverse a sabiendas, que ya es un propósito sobradamente ambicioso en los tiempos que corren.

    Whether you're a Fortune 500 CEO or busy stay-at-home mom, the secret to being more effective and living a happier, healthier life is to hurry up and slow down, or unplug. As Anne Lamott said, "Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you." Contrary to what every Type-A person thinks, studies show that you can actually be more effective by doing less, by unplugging from the chaos of your life for just minutes a day.

    Every second, four human beings are born and every one-point-eight seconds, one dies. As natural as death is, dying is the most common fear that we all share. With every loss comes the most painful emotion called grief, which can cause break ups of relationships, depression, and even suicide. Over 100 million suffer from grief daily, although it is a subject not often spoken of, until now. The fear of dying led Sandra Champlain on a 15-year journey to find evidence of the afterlife. Courageously, she now shares her personal story from skeptic to believer, along with proof that our deceased loved ones can still see, hear and communicate with us. Sandra also shares new information on the how our brains function during the grieving process and provides tools that ease pain and saves lives. It is now your time to find out who you really are and discover for yourself that We Don't Die.

    Beginning in the 16th century, the Protestant Reformation and the Scientific Revolution began to erode the position of authority. As a result, new philosophers began constructing a universal rationality independent of faith. This schism fundamentally changed the course of Western civilization, and it has had consequences that remain with us to this day. This 36-lecture journey will help you understand exactly what the debate has been and will continue to be about.
