The deeper teachings of yoga state that "We are a soul, and have a body," but how do yogis respond when confronted with death—with their own time of passing? In Transitioning in Grace (based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda, author of the classic Autobiography of a Yogi), Nalini Graeber presents true accounts of how longtime yogis and meditators have left their bodies. Some struggled with pain or illness. Others passed suddenly or unexpectedly. Most of these accounts are inspiring; all have something to teach about the transitioning experience. More than just a collection of uplifting stories, this work can serve as a handbook for individuals helping family or friends to leave this world-for those soon to make the transition themselves—and for all thoughtful souls who recognize the wisdom of gaining important insights into early preparation for "Life's Final Exam." Included in these pages: • How to prepare for death. • A yogic "astral ascension" ceremony (funeral/memorial service) that can be adapted for your particular needs. • A description, by a great master of yoga, of what we experience during the moments when we leave our bodies. • A simple meditation technique that can help greatly to bring calmness to the event. • Stories, descriptions, and poems that offer helpful insights and inspiration.
GRACE IN TRANSITION: The First Four Seasons chronicles the real-life Girl Meets World adventures of Cassandra Grace, a middle-aged trans woman who found her footing after estrogen gave her a second chance at life. In a book that is both innovative in content and presentation, Cassandra invites readers to follow along as she steps fearlessly and without shame into a reincarnated life that has exceeded her wildest hopes and dreams. This is not, however, a book solely about gender. It is about authenticity and vulnerability, empowerment and strength. It is about the doors opened by the kindness of others and the horizons pursued when someone allows herself to dream. It is about becoming the mistress of one’s own fate in the middle of a global pandemic and becoming the change one wants to see in the world. It is about hope and loss and faith and perseverance, a story with universal appeal told by a singular messenger. Ok, let’s be honest: that’s a pretty high bar, right? Can you imagine if this book actually delivered on that set-up? OMG, wouldn’t that be an amazing thing to experience? Spoiler Alert: the book not only meets this high bar, but does a perfectly-executed leap right over it. If you are reading this far, please consider smashing that "purchase" button and treating yourself to much more of this quality content.

How can you best prepare and maintain the soil of the home as primary learning environment – academic and spiritual?
Amy’s transformational memoir explores the journey from despair to repair and serves an invitation to us all to understand the distinctions of an extraordinary life through the lens of resilience, compassion, and service. What was it like living in a culture devoid of rites of passage other than binge and puke and spread your legs? Naturally, my heart hurt, my soul ached, and my spirit floated lost. From this place of intensity, I developed incredible resilience. This is what happened: settling into sobriety, grounding into gratitude, and cultivating a compassionate heart, my mind cleared, my heart opened, my spirit reactivated, and my energy expanded. This is what it’s like now: breathing aloha into every moment, recognizing our interdependence, and claiming responsibility as a source for transformation, naturally, my grateful heart has more blessings than I can say grace over. “Equal parts lyrical, confessional, and practical, Amy Elizabeth vulnerably uses her own journey through addiction and trauma to inspire readers to move beyond limiting beliefs and heal from the past” (Alicia Munoz, author of No More Fighting: 20 Minutes a Week to a Stronger Relationship) “Moonshot is an elegant and visceral memoir that dares one to question one’s own resilience and courage. Indeed, Amy Elizabeth is as transparent as she appears in these pages. Love the interactive curriculum and its usefulness” (Kekuhi Keali’ikanaka’oleohaililani, trainer, Halau ‘Ohi’a). “This work is the bridge between despair and repair. It is an invitation for women to tenderize our own hearts and to craft a new heart-centric story, the true story of who we are at our core” (Kristen Noel, editor-in-chief, Best Self Magazine). “Nature did not design us to be alone. Evidence shows that people who enjoy close, fulfilling relationships with others are happier, healthier, and more creative. If this does not prompt you to the wonderful Moonshot, please reconsider. Highly recommended!” (Larry Dossey, MD, author of One Mind: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters). “What an enchanting, captivating, beautiful, practical book! Based in personal experience and penetrating prose, Moonshot is meant for anyone who needs more love, empathy, and compassion in their life—and who doesn’t? Let Amy be your guide to a richer, deeper commitment—not just to others but to the world” (Barbara Montgomery Dossey, RN, PhD, FAAN, author of Florence Nightingale: Mystic, Visionary, Healer and Holistic Nursing: A Handbook for Practice).

Our society teaches us to grow up and "make it on our own." In a sense, we are expected to live as if we are orphans and make our way without the love and guidance of a wise parent. God's expectation for us is never to be orphaned, but rather to transition our dependence from our parents to the One Jesus called, "Abba." The Abba Transition describes the ways in which God desires to reverse the mistakes that we or our parents made in preparing us for adulthood and help us accept Him as the perfect, eternal Parent. Weaving Biblical, pastoral and personal stories, Anglican pastor Christopher Waters describes an ongoing transition into a complete, healthy and whole life in our Heavenly Father. The Abba Transition is a book about parenting, spiritual maturity and emotional wholeness. But primarily, The Abba Transition is a story of eternal love.
This book brings a refreshing perspective to preparing students with disabilities and their families for all aspects of independent life. Many of the transitions experienced by younger children set the stage for future changes, yet do not receive the attention they deserve in the literature. This publication offers a strengths-based approach that includes philosophical perspectives and evidence-based practices to assist this vulnerable population with lifespan changes and challenges. Each chapter addresses transitional needs and their assessment, and relevant interventions from the perspectives of an application to schools, families and communities. Multicultural perspectives are integral to all these chapters. The book covers transition from: - home to early childhood education - early childhood education to primary school - primary school to secondary school - primary school to special settings - juvenile justice settings back into the community - school to work - school to further education or training - post-school settings to retirement. Lifespan Transitions and Disability: A holistic perspective is a necessary companion for postgraduate education students and researchers who have an interest in exploring the nature and context of special and inclusive education today.
