Padma Venkatraman’s inspiring story of a young girl’s struggle to regain her passion and find a new peace is told lyrically through verse that captures the beauty and mystery of India and the ancient bharatanatyam dance form. This is a stunning novel about spiritual awakening, the power of art, and above all, the courage and resilience of the human spirit. Veda, a classical dance prodigy in India, lives and breathes dance—so when an accident leaves her a below-knee amputee, her dreams are shattered. For a girl who’s grown used to receiving applause for her dance prowess and flexibility, adjusting to a prosthetic leg is painful and humbling. But Veda refuses to let her disability rob her of her dreams, and she starts all over again, taking beginner classes with the youngest dancers. Then Veda meets Govinda, a young man who approaches dance as a spiritual pursuit. As their relationship deepens, Veda reconnects with the world around her, and begins to discover who she is and what dance truly means to her.

Anthropologists have long known that different cultures give expression to their symbol systems through external mediums such as food and clothing, but they have not recognized as readily that cultures also mold emotional life to fit particular patterns of meaning. This prejudice against the role of behaviors in shaping the emotional and cognitive life is especially strong in the study of religion. Gary Anderson's study reveals that, in the Israelite culture (and later, the Jewish culture), mourning and joy as emotional experiences have visible behavioral components for both the individual and the community at large. The best evidence of this can be found in rabbinical texts that prescribe behaviors appropriate to joy and determine when this ritual state supersedes that of mourning. For example, on religious feast days, mourning is forbidden and joy is prescribed. Mourning cannot resume until after the festival. The terms "mourning" and "joy" so employed do not refer to simple emotional states, but rather constitute a discrete set of ritual behaviors. In fact, the types of discrete behaviors that constitute joy (eating, drinking, festal song, anointing with oil, festive attire, sexual relations) all have exact anti-types in the ritual of mourning (fasting, dirges, putting ashes on the head, rending one's garments or putting on sackcloth, sexual continence). Anderson shows that it is not only the rabbinical texts that use the terms "mourning" and "joy" in this way; rabbinic tradition is simply heir to a much older tradition, as witnessed in biblical and other ancient Near Eastern narratives such as the Gilgamesh Epic.

Teleios Technique, is based on my odyssey to discover I am a spiritual being of light, love and freedom. It explains the processes I found most helpful in releasing past traumas to allow me to be open to experience others, the world around me and my self as spiritual. The path to overcome my lack of birthright has taken me through the discovery of stress management and deconditioning. MariEl taught me that the past could be released in a quick, efficient way. Bioenergetics taught me how to express feelings and release anger. Some clients went into past lives. This pushed me to discover how to work with regression and then into my own past lives. Ann White opened me to the world of the Ascended Masters, angels and archangels, and asking for their assistance for the healing of others. I know God as light and non-judgmental love. I have seen the lame walk, cancer reverse, and brain lesions disappear to teach me how powerful faith is. As I learned to use intuition I have traveled many paths, including exorcism and ghost busting. I have learned the power of a loving group in helping others to discover who they are.

In August of 1983, Mark Laughlin, a young graduate student, was involved in a seemingly minor bicycling accident. Thirty-three hours later, he was lying in bed, his body stiff from convulsions and blood gushing from his mouth. It’s seldom that we are allowed to watch a crisis unfold in which the key players let God be God. Many people believe that God is in control and can do what he pleases, that is, until we are gripped by an overwhelming experience. When a trauma of this magnitude strikes, we often question and criticize God. In Laughlin’s story, A Time to Dance, we see how belief in God’s sovereignty affects the individual, the family, the pastor, and the church. We see faith stretched to its breaking point but never lost or broken. In spite of the hopelessness of Mark’s situation, the Laughlin family clings to their faith – a faith also willing to release a beloved son and brother, if that is indeed part of God’s plan. A Time to Dance is a powerful illustration of the unwavering devotion displayed by the Laughlins. It takes you behind the scenes of a tragedy and allows you to share in the miraculous experiences of a family that trusted God.

In her new book, A Time to Dance, Margaret Fisk Taylor recreates the exciting religious response her country-wide "symbolic movement" workshops have engendered in children, young people, and adults.First of all, A Time to Dance is a "how to" book. It tells, graphically and step-by-step, how to be a leader of a dance choir, how many members there should be, what kind of robes to wear, and, trickiest of all, how to get men and boys to join the group. There are descriptions of dance dramas, processions, narrative outlines and special programs for religious holidays.A fascinating section on the history of religious dance begins with the biblical "David danced before the Lord with all his might," and continues through the early Christian church and the medieval miracle and mystery plays.A third section brings to life the renaissance of dance movement in twentieth century religious worship.

The first novel in Karen Kingsbury's celebrated series about the resiliency of love, the power of commitment, and the amazing faithfulness of God. From Booklist Veteran romance writer Kingsbury also takes a thoughtful turn in A Time to Dance, a morality tale about the staying power of love in marriage. Abby Reynolds, wife of a high-school football coach in a small Illinois town, suspects her husband, John, of having an affair. But the true reason their marriage is about to crash is simply the strain of years: arguments unresolved, dreams deferred, and never enough money. Abby's own daughter and, of course, a renewed faith, make Abby (and John) think twice about divorcing in what amounts to Kingsbury's tribute to married love.

In July 1518 a terrifying and mysterious plague struck the medieval city of Strasbourg. Hundreds of men and women danced wildly, day after day, in the punishing summer heat. Their feet blistered and bled, and their limbs ached with fatigue, but they simply could not stop. By the time the epidemic subsided, heat and exhaustion had claimed an untold number of lives, leaving thousands bewildered and bereaved, and an enduring enigma for future generations. This book explains why Strasbourg's dancing plague took place. In doing so it leads us into a largely vanished world, evoking the sights, sounds, aromas, diseases and hardships, the fervent super naturalism and the desperate hedonism of the late medieval world. Not only a fascinating historical detective story, "A Time to Dance, A Time to Die" is also an exploration into the strangest capabilities of the human mind and the extremes to which fear and irrationality can lead us.
