The Gothic in Contemporary British Trauma Fiction
42,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book examines the intersection of trauma and the Gothic in six contemporary British novels: Martin Amis's London Fields, Margaret Drabble's The Gates of Ivory, Ian McEwan's Atonement, Pat Barker's Regeneration and Double Vision, and Kazuo Ishiguro's Never Let Me Go. In these works, the Gothic functions both as an expression of societal violence at the turn of the twenty-first century and as a response to the related crisis of representation brought about by the contemporary individual's highly mediated and spectatorial relationship to this violence. By locating these six novels within the Gothic tradition, this work argues that each text, to borrow a term from Jacques Derrida, "participates" in the Gothic in ways that both uphold the paradigm of "unspeakability" that has come to dominate much trauma fiction, as well as push its boundaries to complicate how we think of the ethical relationship between witnessing and writing trauma.

A handbook for staying grounded, emotionally connected, and empowered regardless of what's in the headlines and who's in your face.From politics, climate change, and the economy to racism, sexism, and a hundred other kinds of biases--things have never felt so urgent and uncertain. We want to take action, but so many of us struggle with overwhelm and burnout. And on top of it all, we get so many messages telling us to relax, to "let it go" and feel some other way about things. We'd like to think that emotional intelligence and mindfulness will help--but why do these approaches so often fall short in fever-pitch moments? In his warm, funny, streetwise style, Ralph De La Rosa offers tools for coping in contentious times. Full of insights and practices addressing everything from trauma triggers to privilege guilt and the art of saying no, Don't Tell Me to Relax brings the welcome news that our thoughts and emotions are not the enemy. Rather, when met skillfully, they can light the way to self-empathy, social understanding, and an activism that has room for both inner and outer work.

Revolution of the Soul
20,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Celebrated yoga teacher and activist Seane Corn shares pivotal accounts of her life with raw honesty-enriched with in-depth spiritual teachings-to help us heal, evolve, and change the world "My first lessons in spirituality and yoga had nothing to do with a mat, but everything to do with waking up. They included angels, seeing God, and being in Heaven. But, believe me, not the way you might think." So begins Revolution of the Soul. What comes next reads like a riveting memoir filled with uncensored moments of joy, pain, wonder, and humor. Except, this book is so much more than that. Seane's real purpose is to guide us into a deep, gut-level understanding of our highest Self through yoga philosophy and other tools for emotional healing-not just as abstract ideas but as embodied, fully felt wisdom. Why? To spark a "revolution of the soul" in each of us, so we can awaken to our purpose and become true agents of change. Just a few of the stops along the way include: The everyday "angels" Seane finds in the gritty corners of New York's 1980s East Village; her early struggles as a total yoga-class misfit; the profound shadow work and body-based practices that helped her to heal childhood trauma, OCD, unhealthy behaviors, and relationship wounding; hard-earned lessons from some of the most heartbreaking places on the planet; and many other unforgettable teaching stories.

9,95 € *

What does it take to go through physical trauma and have everything taken away from you and come back to be a better you than before with more joy in your life? Ed Penniman did this and tells you how with art, stories, and unusual but powerful recommendations. Although aimed at people who have had physical trauma, this book can help anyone who has challenges and has to face dramatic change. Author's comments: This book is about not falling prey to a negative self-concept after trauma. It is about redefining how you see yourself, how to take your personal challenge, and learn the valuable embedded lesson it may offer. I evolved as a person because I was made aware that I could be a better me after being stripped of my limited ideas of myself. I was given an opportunity to renew and rebrand myself - to live from a deeper and evolving image of who I am. Come to grips with vulnerability. The past, the present, and the future - these are all things I had a lot of time to think about when I was in the hospital. It took me a few weeks until what was happening to me started to sink in. There was so much activity surrounding me in the hospital that I got caught up in being a patient, rather than being myself. I slowly started to understand that I was a quadriplegic. Self-preservation. Coming to terms with your disability means losing your innocence. It is a rite of passage and an initiation into a new and higher level of awareness and sensitivity. While in the initiation process, the moment-to-moment unfolding of events requires one to rely on one's self, measure the situation carefully, get information, and safely guide the self through obstacles as they present themselves. 1.
