A much-needed antidote to our modern, assembly-line approach to childbirth, this new book is designed as a guide for all who wish to participate in the wondrous process of bringing new life into the world. Its ideas derive from two sources: the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda, with its emphasis on body, mind, and spirit, and the latest Western scientific prenatal research. By integrating the best information from these two very different perspectives, this remarkable book gives readers the tools to ensure that our children are nourished by thoughts, words, and actions from the very moment of conception. Magical Beginnings, Enchanted Lives is rich in practical information, including strategies to help enliven the body intelligence of unborn babies by nourishing each of their five senses, as well as through Ayurvedically balanced nutrition and eating with awareness. Specific yoga poses and meditation techniques reduce the mother’s stress and improve the infant’s emotional environment, as do tips for conscious communication with a partner. Exercises prepare parents for the experience of childbirth itself, followed by natural approaches to dealing with the first weeks of parenting, from healing herbs to enhancing your milk supply to coping with postpartum depression. Inspiring, expansive, and remarkably informative, this unique book from acclaimed experts in mind-body medicine will profoundly enhance the experience of pregnancy and birth for both parents and baby. From the Trade Paperback edition.
Announcing the new Spanish-language translation of What to Expect When You're Expecting: 4th Edition, America's pregnancy bible with over 16 million copies in print. Originally published as Que se Puede Esperar Cuando Se Esta Esperando, this new edition is a livelier, less formal, altogether more user-friendly Spanish-language version. Approximately 1 million Hispanic-American women give birth each year. This is a book for the mother-to-be who either doesn't speak English or doesn't feel comfortable with her English; for the doctor who is having trouble communicating with a patient; for the expectant parents at a stressful time when what's most familiar—their first language—is most welcome. The book will be the book to turn to for the broad range of Spanish-speaking Americans in the United States—be they Puerto Ricans in the Northeast, Cuban-Americans in Florida, Mexican-Americans on the west coast, Dominicans, and Spanish-speaking Americans of Spanish, and Central and South American descent.
Author: Deepak Chopra
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
Dr. Deepak Chopra, author of the best-selling Ageless Body, Timeless Mind, offers his thousands of fans a newly revised edition of Creating Health, his groundbreaking book about the healing power of the mind. First published in 1987, Creating Health introduces the basic premises of Ayurveda, the six-thousand-year-old tradition of health care from India, and guides readers toward a sound understanding of the mind-body connection. Dr. Chopra is considered the preeminent spokesman for Ayurveda, which he blends with Western medical philosophy to create an intelligent and balanced approach to health. Dr. Chopra has revised Creating Health for the many people who are turning to alternative methods of health care as a result of the escalating crisis in traditional care. This edition incorporates a number of advances based on Dr. Chopra's recent work and new perspectives, including the techniques of mindfulness meditation, a simple but powerful form of breath-focused meditation.
Deepak Chopra has discovered the delights—and frustrations—of golf, and he is passionate about the game. Confronted by the wild ups and downs of his own play, he consulted with golf professionals and developed a new approach to the game that any golfer can follow—from the novice to the expert. The results can be measured not only in increased enjoyment and skill, but also in greater wisdom about life beyond the 18th hole. Chopra’s own game has improved dramatically since incorporating the elements of his program. Instead of focusing on the mechanics of a “perfect” swing, Chopra reveals how golf can be mastered through mindfulness, a form of awareness that combines sharp focus and relaxation at the same time. Expanded awareness, he tells us, can accomplish much more than external mechanics to improve one’s game. But Golf for Enlightenment is also an engrossing story about Adam, an Everyman who is playing a terrible round of golf when he meets a mysterious young teaching pro named Leela. In seven short but profound lessons detailing spiritual strategies, she teaches Adam the essence of a game that has much to explain about life itself. Chopra has spent the last year taking the unique message in Golf for Enlightenment nationwide, teaching the essential tenets of his program at lectures and seminars to golfers everywhere. His message continues to help players turn an obsession into a positive life path. From the Hardcover edition.

"You want to know the truth." Sonea has learned much since she was but a penniless urchin possessing an awesome untapped ability. She has earned the grudging respect of her fellow novices and a place in the Magicians' Guild. But there is much she wishes she had never learned—what she witnessed, for example, in the underground chamber of the mysterious High Lord Akkarin . . . and the knowledge that the Guild is being observed closely by an ancient fearsome enemy. Still, she dares not ignore the terrifying truths the High Lord would share with her, even though she fears it may be base trickery, a scheme to use her astonishing powers to accomplish his dark aims. For Sonea knows her future is in his hands—and that only in the shadows will she achieve true greatness . . . if she survives.
