Zen and the art of raising children to make peace in the world . . . In this wise and insightful volume, Charlotte Kasl applies her signature blend of spiritual guidelines, exercises, and practical advice to a stage of life that leaves many of us searching for answers. If the Buddha Had Kids draws from Buddhist, Quaker, and other spiritual traditions to help parents raise children who value cooperation, compassion, and understanding, emphasizing that finding peace within a family is the first step toward creating a peaceful world. Beginning with creating a healthy bond with your child and moving through all stages of life, encouraging empathy, respect, fascination, and curiosity, Kasl explores the spiritual journey of parenting. She also draws on her decades of experience as a healer and practicing psychotherapist to tackle very practical concerns such as the roles of electronics, money, sexuality, and education, and what it means to find one’s voice. This lively book promises to bring inspiration, humor, and wisdom to the joys and struggles of raising children in our contemporary world, and will serve as an enlightening companion for all moms and dads. From the Trade Paperback edition.

The Cankered Rose and Esther's Revenge begins the author's dramatic journey of adopting his teenage daughter with severe attachment issues in Seattle. The heartbreak of then seeing Cordelia stolen by the efforts of his former wife and the child-welfare legal complex in Los Angeles, alongside that of the trauma of being denied during efforts to reunify with her are each foreshadowed here.Issues surrounding adoption trauma, parenting children with reactive attachment disorder, and the author's own struggles with Asperger's syndrome will be his constant companions on this perilous journey of adopting, losing, and then trying to reunite with his beloved daughter.In this and subsequent volumes, the author will also be questioning the ability of the child-welfare legal complex and the Los Angeles Juvenile Dependency Court to understand the nature of damaged child attachment or the therapeutic parenting needed to heal children with special needs. Ultimately, each would be as responsible for failing Cordelia as the breaking of the violent waves for the shattering movement of the rocks on the beach.

Το Μαγικό βουνό είναι ένα αριστούργημα της ευρωπαϊκής λογοτεχνίας από έναν νομπελίστα συγγραφέα που διερευνά τη γοητεία και τον εκφυλισμό των ιδεών σε μια εσωστρεφή κοινότητα τις παραμονές του Μεγάλου Πολέμου. Η υπόθεση είναι φαινομενικά απλή. Ο νεαρός μηχανικός από το Αμβούργο Χανς Κάστορπ επισκέπτεται το σανατόριο Μπέργκχοφ της Ελβετίας για να δει τον ξάδερφό του. Μια μικρή αδιαθεσία και ένας παρατεταμένος πυρετός οδηγούν το γιατρό του σανατορίου, αυλικό σύμβουλο Μπέρενς, να του προτείνει να παρατείνει την παραμονή του. Τελικά ο Χανς Κάστορπ αποφασίζει να μείνει στο σανατόριο για τρεις βδομάδες. Μόνο που οι τρεις βδομάδες, χωρίς να το καταλάβει, μετατρέπονται σε επτά χρόνια, καθώς ο Χανς ερωτεύεται και μεθά από τις ιδέες που ακούει να συζητιούνται εκεί.
