Caution, your dreams may be closer than they appear.

Maurice Summerlin is a frustrated writer who plans a short vacation in Spain to escape his routine life and ponder his stalled career. Soon after arriving, a sudden rainstorm causes a chance meeting with Claire, an aging American traveler, who convinces him to join her on a journey to a remote fishing village on Spain’s Mediterranean coast. Maurice soon discovers that the best adventures are never planned.

After Claire leads him to an enchanting inn called Asilomar, he learns he is one of many wistful travelers who are on daring pursuits to fulfill their dreams. Maurice’s unintended arrival is accompanied by fear and self-doubt, but it is not long before he transforms from observer to participant. His new friend, Claire, proves she’s not afraid of mortality but dares to race it to the finish line.

Julian, Asilomar’s host, is determined to inspire his guests to risk comfort and security in exchange for exhilaration and fulfillment. But for all of his efforts he may just make the ultimate sacrifice. Euphrates, Julian’s best friend and assistant, lives in a silent world. Yet while he quietly helps to inspire those around him he yearns for the love which has eluded him.

The Guestbook at Asilomar is the engaging tale of one man’s adventurous quest during which he, along with other guests at this unconventional Spanish retreat, discovers the power of dreams and how life may best be spent in pursuit of fulfilling them.

In 1942, in the midst of World War II, three factions struggle for power and control over Serbia: the Royalists, the Partisans, and the Nazis. For those living there, life was put on hold indefinitely while they coped daily with the terrorization of war—an especially disheartening situation for the country’s young people.

Fifteen-year-old Miriana, an only child, lives in a small, two-bedroom house in Bela Palanka, Serbia, with her parents, who farm and run a saw and gristmill. Their tiny home now accommodates her mother’s sister and nephew, who have been forced to evacuate from German-occupied Belgrade. Miriana’s aunt is frequently called upon by the Germans to translate for them—a task made more stressful by the fact that the family is also hiding a Partisan soldier in the cellar of the house. Being caught means certain death. Meanwhile, Miriana’s best friend, Stefan, supports his widowed mother and aging grandparents on a nearby farm; he resents having to abandon his aspirations for an education and his passion for the violin to run the farm.

Their existence is fraught with the angst of evening curfews, blackout curtains at night, unforeseen air raids, and conflict with the Nazis, but family, friends, and small pleasures propel them through a war that threatens their happiness and their lives on a daily basis.

Too often we live our lives on automatic pilot. We make our choices at a subconscious level, and these choices are most often driven by negative or outdated values and beliefs of which we may not even be aware. Our minds drive us to live in the past.

By living in the present, however, you can discover the real you and gain an understanding of the underlying elements that reinforce both your positive and negative behaviors. As you learn what values, beliefs, and behaviors are sabotaging your future, you can unlock the potential that is within. The power of living in the present can give you a greater self-awareness and empower you to have a greater level of self-regulation. It allows you to escape the land of status quo and move into your often hidden potential.

Through a series of self-explorations and personality studies, as well as faith-based advice, this guide seeks to help you discover the real you. By taking these steps, you can stop living in the shadow of the past and start moving into your future.

By Anne E. Beall, Ph.D.
It all started when a rat ran over author Dr. Anne E. Beall’s husband’s foot outside their Chicago home. The Bealls had experienced rat problems for a long time. Then, a neighbor told them about a program called Cats at Work where one could get feral cats that would take care of the rat problem.

In Community Cats, she tells how she and her husband entered the world of feral cats when they signed up for the Chicago Cats at Work program with Tree House Humane Society. Tree House practices TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return), and they trapped, neutered, and relocated a feral cat colony to Beall’s home. She narrates what she learned about the unique world of feral cats and about the people who are involved with feral cats and who advocate for them.

Community Cats shares the story of what initially began as a creative solution to a rat problem and became a journey that led her to reach out to others in the feral-cat world. Beall interviewed other colony caretakers and leaders in the TNR movement and learned about how feral cats live, how they relate to one another, and how they relate to their caretakers. She also conducted survey research on American’s attitudes toward stray cats, TNR programs, and spaying/neutering.

Beall learned that feral cat programs have a huge impact on the caretakers of the colonies, on the neighbors, on the community, and on the cats themselves and details those findings in Community Cats.

By Evelyn E. & James D. Whitehead

Sexuality and justice often seem odd bedfellows. Sexual embraces of intimacy and passion thrive in our private lives, while justice safeguards the laws and duties that govern the public realm. Yet intuitively, we sense there are deeper connections. Both sexuality and justice support the holistic ideal proclaimed by the early Christian writer Ireneaus: the glory of God is the human person fully alive.

Evelyn and James Whitehead combine professional expertise as a psychologist and historian of religion as well as personal experiences and extensive research to explore the interplay of sexuality, love, and justice on the spiritual journey today. While drawing on biblical themes and contemporary psychological insight, the Whiteheads examine modern experiences of attachment and vulnerability, marriage and friendship, compassion and sexual diversity, and the psychological and spiritual experiences of transgender persons—a new and often bewildering consideration for many Christians. Included is a reflection on a prophetic Christian ministry in support of sexuality and justice that illustrates the importance of moral awareness and sensual attunement to the world.

Fruitful Embraces utilizes Christian theology and effective pastoral ministry to explore the vital connections between sexuality and Christian spirituality and links between compassion and justice that will encourage anyone on a spiritual journey to open their hearts and minds to the extravagant diversity of creation.

In the Bible, a mysterious Lady Wisdom appears in many guises and dominates in the “Wisdom Books” of the Old Testament and Apocrypha. But just what is this spirit that is so central to all of creation? In My Conversation with Sophia, author William Z. Shetter shares an imagined conversation with Sophia, the personification of wisdom.

Through this conversation, Shetter addresses how this ancient wisdom speaks to us today by exploring twenty-six facets of wisdom that include such subjects as attentiveness, simplicity, growth, humility, grace, and compassion. My Conversation with Sophia shows that wisdom is not the amassing of knowledge, but rather, it is insight. True wisdom is not only a matter of the mind but of the heart as well.

Shetter explains how wisdom’s timeless core is alive in the form of the wisdomlight that is at the center of all of us. We explore our own wisdom path in a spirit of contemplation—reflecting attentively on the depth of what our experience is telling us. As Sophia opens an awareness of the centrality of wisdom in the world’s great religions and ethical systems, she provides a deeper understanding of wisdom as the divine breath of all the great sacred paths.

William Z. Shetter takes the reader into the metaphorical and mystical realms of life as smoothly as gliding across a still lake in a canoe. His Conversation with Wisdom gently leads us all into dialogue with the ineffable sage that moves within history and beyond it. It is a tremendous springboard for an individual or group on a journey of deepening spirituality.
