How do you survive the unthinkable? Passengers boarding the 10.35 train from Manchester Piccadilly to London Euston are bound for work, assignations, reunions, holidays or new starts, with no idea that their journey is about to be brutally curtailed. Holly has just landed her dream job, which should make life a lot easier than it has been, and Jeff is heading for his first ever work interview after months of unemployment. They end up sitting next to each other. Onboard customer service assistant Naz dreams of better things as he collects rubbish from the passengers. And among the others travelling are Nick with his young family who are driving him crazy; pensioner Meg and her partner setting off on a walking holiday and facing an uncertain future; Caroline, run ragged by the competing demands of her stroppy teenage children and her demented mother; and Rhona, unhappy at work and desperate to get home to her small daughter. And in the middle of the carriage sits Saheel, carrying a deadly rucksack . . .

Once you turn the page of life, you cannot turn it back. The Pain from the Death of a Spouse revisits life with the living and documents the death, pain, and sorrow that will eventually come to every marriage. This book introduces a door that every married couple will walk through, usually not together. A door that we don't like to acknowledge or even admit exists. It is the door of reality. One spouse will die before the other in almost every marriage. My spouse walked through the door and left me on the opposite side. This is my story after the door closed behind her. It is a story that speaks to the soul of mankind about life, love, marriage, death, and sorrow. You might ask, ?What gives the author the insight, the expertise, the knowledge, and the experience to write about the pain that one suffers from the death of a family member Perhaps it's the pain he suffered from the death of his nineteen-year-old sister, and perhaps it's the pain he suffered from the death of his father, and perhaps it's the pain he suffered from the death of his mother, and perhaps it's the pain he suffered from the death of his brother, and perhaps it's the pain he suffered from the death of his spouse of fifty-five years, or maybe it's the love, support, and comfort God gave him during each of these deaths.

Decades ago, Jim and Anne Armstrong were Iiving an ordinary American life. Not particularly interested in spiritual matters, Jim and Anne's focus was on their careers and making ends meet. But when Anne began suffering from crippling headaches not cured by traditional medicine, she and her husband turned to hypnosis and made a discovery that would change their lives forever. After hypnosis sessions began to reveal that Anne's headaches were caused by spiritual forces straining to express themselves through her, Anne began a journey during which she and Jim eventually learned to accept, work with and come to terms with these forces, a realization that led them to teach workshops around the world helping others understand and develop their own psychic and spiritual abilities. In their comprehensive guide to Kundalini practices, Anne and Jim worked to demystify the psychic/intuitive realm as they shared Anne's profound personal experiences and explored in depth the spiritual/intuitive process, meditation, transpersonal counseling, and the Kundalini method.

Breath is the flow of air between life and death. Breathing is an involuntary action that functions as the basis of all human activities, intellectual, artistic, emotional and physical. Breathing is the first autonomous individual action that brings life into being and the end of breathing is the definitive sign of disappearance. Starting from the question how breathing affects the body, levels of consciousness, perception and meaning, this book, for the first time, investigates through a variety of philosophical, critical and practical models, directly and indirectly related to breath, aiming to establish breath as a category in the production and reception of meaning within the context of theatre. It also explores the epistemological, psycho-physical and consciousness-related implications of breath. Aristotle dedicated a volume to breath exploring and enquiring in to its presocratic roots. For Heidegger, breath is “the temporal extension” ofBeing. Artaud's theatricality is not representational but rather rooted in the actor's breathing. Jacques Derrida and Luce Irigaray investigate the phenomenon of breath in order to explain the nature of human consciousness. Breath as a philosophical concept and as a system of practice is central to Indian thoughts, performance, medicine, martial arts and spirituality. As the book argues, individual consciousness is a temporal experience and breath is the material presence oftime in the body. Cessation of breath, on the contrary, creates pause in this flow of the endless identification of signifiers. When breath stops time stops. When time stops there is a 'gap' in the chain of the presence of signifiers and this 'gap' is a different perceptual modality, which is neutral in Zero velocity. Restoration of Breath is a practical approach to this psychophysical experience of consciousness in which time exists only in eternity and void beyond memory and meaning.
