The day that 12-year-old James Doty walked in to his local magic shop is the day that changed his life. Once the neglected son of an alcoholic father and a mother with chronic depression, he has gone on to become a leading neurosurgeon, based at Stanford University. He credits Ruth for this incredible turnaround: the remarkable woman who devoted the summer to transforming his mind and opening his heart. In this uplifting memoir, Jim explains the visualisation techniques Ruth taught him that gave him the self-esteem to imagine a new future for himself. He examines the science behind mindfulness and why the skills he learned - of focus and attention - now help him to think fast and keep calm in the operating theatre. And he shows us what is possible when you start to change your brain and your heart. Into the Magic Shop imparts some powerful life lessons about how to live better, and inspires us to believe that we all have inside us the capacity to change our own destiny.

The award-winning New York Times bestseller about the extraordinary things that can happen when we harness the power of both the brain and the heart Growing up in the high desert of California, Jim Doty was poor, with an alcoholic father and a mother chronically depressed and paralyzed by a stroke. Today he is the director of the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education (CCARE) at Stanford University, of which the Dalai Lama is a founding benefactor. But back then his life was at a dead end until at twelve he wandered into a magic shop looking for a plastic thumb. Instead he met Ruth, a woman who taught him a series of exercises to ease his own suffering and manifest his greatest desires. Her final mandate was that he keep his heart open and teach these techniques to others. She gave him his first glimpse of the unique relationship between the brain and the heart. Doty would go on to put Ruth´s practices to work with extraordinary results-power and wealth that he could only imagine as a twelve-year-old, riding his orange Sting-Ray bike. But he neglects Ruth´s most important lesson, to keep his heart open, with disastrous results-until he has the opportunity to make a spectacular charitable contribution that will virtually ruin him. Part memoir, part science, part inspiration, and part practical instruction, Into the Magic Shop shows us how we can fundamentally change our lives by first changing our brains and our hearts.

An unwanted betrothal, a baron of ill repute, one chance to change their fate… Aisling played the dutiful daughter and ended up with a despicable fiancé. With no choices, she must destroy her reputation and the lord of Armanta fits her needs. Common born, near penniless, questionable character, and a remote estate where she could keep her secrets, he would be perfect for putting an end to her arranged marriage. Brogan´s hard-won estate came with many challenges, the least of which was an unplanned royal guest in the dead of winter. In his old life, he´d not hesitate to bed the wayward beauty but the Lady Aisling deserves more than a rogue in lord´s clothing. Compounded by unwanted magic lessons and a manor with its own mysteries, he is drawn to Aisling as more than a passing acquaintance. As Brogan and Aisling find a blissful peace, his sordid past is bound to catch up as powerful rival emerges from the shadows and demands his dues… From them both. Deceiving the Bandit Lord is a fantasy romance novel with exotic elves, reluctant werewolves, and forbidden magic. Book 2 in the Wylderlands Chronicles.

Harry Potter: A Journey Through Divination and ...
2,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This non-fiction short-form eBook features content which is adapted from the audiobook Harry Potter: A History of Magic - inspired by the British Library exhibition of the same name. If you´ve gazed into the crystal ball you´ll have seen that you are about to enter a place of prediction and fortune-telling that makes up the subject of Divination in the real and wizarding world. From the use of bones and shells thousands of years ago, to peering into teacups in the parlours of Victorian England, for millennia people have strived to see what fate and fortune holds. Trying to read our destinies, the study of the night sky has fascinated people for centuries, from the star atlases of ancient China to the celestial globes of 17th-century Venice. Astronomy holds a special place in the wizarding world as a source of inspiration and identity for Harry Potter´s life at Hogwarts, and beyond. This eBook short examines the colourful characters and curious incidents of the real history of magic, and how they relate to the Hogwarts lesson subjects of Divination and Astronomy. The history of magic is as long as time and as wide as the world. In every culture, in every age, in every place and, probably, in every heart, there is magic.
