Color explores how we can read this marvelous language of light, heightening our awareness of the deep sense of beauty around and within us, within each living being, nurturing our imagination. In five chapters, Color takes the reader through birth, darkness and light, our auras, chakras, and the rainbow, to the afterlife. It explores how artists use color, how we have “coded” colors for healing, alchemy, and various other aspects of our culture, and ultimately delves into the spirituality of color and mysticism. The book also has numerous illustrations in color and black and white.
In one of his first books, “The Mountains of California”, John Muir, famed naturalist, environmentalist, and author, recounts his travels through the Sierra Nevada Mountains and Yosemite Valley. First published in 1894, “The Mountains of California” is a captivating and vivid portrait of the raw beauty of this spectacular place. He takes the readers on a tour of the wonders that abound, writing “Go where you may within the bounds of California, mountains are ever in sight, charming and glorifying every landscape”. Muir was a tireless campaigner for the preservation of the natural world and was a powerful advocate for the special respect that needs to be afforded to these unique and wild places. Yosemite and the Sierra Nevada had a special place in his heart and he worked hard to help pass the bill in 1890 that established Yosemite as a National Park. Muir’s relationship with nature was both spiritual and philosophical. The transcendental quality of his love for the natural world comes through in his writing, as well as his scientific knowledge and training in the geology of the area. “The Mountains of California” is a poetic and passionate study of these national treasures. This edition includes a biographical afterword.
2013 Reprint of 1933 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition. This is a book for actors by an actor, giving vivid instruction in the technique of the art. Boleslavsky's knowledge of the theatre is based on a wide experience. In the 1920s, he made his way to New York City, where, now known as «Richard Boleslavsky» (the English spelling of his name), he began to teach Stanislavski's 'system' (which, in the US, developed into «Method Acting») with fellow émigré Maria Ouspenskaya. In 1923, he founded the American Laboratory Theatre in New York. Among his students were Lee Strasberg, Stella Adler and Harold Clurman, who were all founding members of the Group Theatre (1931-1940), the first American acting ensemble to utilize Stanislavski's techniques.

Reprint of 1943 Edition.This is the article in which Maslow first presented his hierarchy of needs. It was first printed in his 1943 paper «A Theory of Human Motivation». Maslow subsequently extended the idea to include his observations of humans' innate curiosity. His theories parallel many other theories of human developmental psychology, some of which focus on describing the stages of growth in humans. Maslow described various needs and used the terms «Physiological, Safety, Belongingness and Love, Esteem, Self-Actualization and Self-Transcendence» needs to describe the pattern that human motivations generally move through. Maslow studied what he called exemplary people such as Albert Einstein, Jane Addams, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Frederick Douglass rather than mentally ill or neurotic people.
A.A. co-founder Bill W. tells the story of the growth of Alcoholics Anonymous from its make-or-break beginnings in New York and Akron in the early 1930s to its spread across the country and overseas in the years that followed. A wealth of personal accounts and anecdotes portray the dramatic power of the A.A. Twelve Step program of recovery – unique not only in its approach to treating alcoholism but also in its spiritual impact and social influence.<br>
Bill recounts the evolution of the Twelve Steps, the Twelve Traditions and the Twelve Concepts for World Service – those principles and practices that protect A.A.s Three Legacies of Recovery, Unity and Service – and how in 1955 the responsibility for these were passed on by the founding members to the Fellowship (A.A.’s membership at large). In closing chapters of <i>Alcoholics Anonymous Comes of Age</i>, early «friends of A.A.,» including the influential Dr. Silkworth and Father Ed Dowling, share their perspectives. Includes 16 pages of archival photographs.<br>
For those interested in the history of A.A. and how it has withstood the test of time, <i>Alcoholics Anonymous Comes of Age</i> offers on the growth of this ground-breaking movement. <br>
<i>Alcoholics Anonymous Comes of Age</i> has been approved by the General Service Conference.
