Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers
Robert Sapolsky

Why don''t zebras get ulcers - or heart disease, diabetes and other chronic diseases - when people do? In a fascinating look at the science of stress, biologist Robert Sapolsky presents an intriguing case, that people develop such diseases partly because our bodies aren''t designed for the constant stresses of modern-day life like sitting in daily traffic jams or growing up in poverty. Rather, they seem more built for the kind of short-term stress faced by a zebra - like outrunning a lion. With wit, graceful writing, and a sprinkling of Far Side cartoons, this book makes understanding the science of stress and adventure in discovery.

Waking The Tiger
Peter Levine

Levine captures the essence of post-traumatic stress; your whole body is perpetually reliving the traumatic experience(s) and triggering distorted thinking, feeling, and behaviour that otherwise makes no sense. Levine''s book compares human trauma reactions to animal reactions. This gives him a model to break down the blocked cycle of somatic and mental reactions into pieces: hyperarousal, constricted consciousness, dissociation, and helplessness in triggering situations.

Chakras For Beginners
David Pond

"...Compare this to how photosynthesis works in the plant world. The sun''s energy is absorbed by the material substance of the plant and brings it to life. The energy is drawn down into the roots, which draw nutrients from the earth. The energy then ascends back up the plant and is ultimately expressed as its flowering - energy transformed in beauty and given back to the world. So it is with us. We draw in energy from the sun, it is drawn down to the root of our being, draws from the earth, and then it ascends - ultimately becoming the flowering of our being as it is offered back to the world. As we work with our consciousness, it becomes more of an expression of beauty. ..." David Pond
