Judgment Detox: Release the Beliefs That Hold You Back from Living a Better Life

By Gabrielle Bernstein.

“Judgment, being judged and judging others, is at its core a separation from others. That separation, often a reflection of our own insecurities projected onto others, keeps us feeling alienated and alone. The Judgment Detox is a clear, proactive, step-by-step program to rid the reader of tendancies to judge and allow them to find their way back to oneness”–

About the book:

Despite doing “all the right things” to successfully rebuild her life and her finances after a period of deep personal and professional turmoil where she lost almost everything, Victoria Price still felt something profoundly missing from her life. Her new book, THE WAY OF BEING LOST: A Road Trip to My Truest Self (Ixia, February 14, 2018, Hardcover, eBook), is a heartfelt, candid account of rediscovering her joy and purpose after years of struggle, confusion and hopelessness.

As a child, Victoria’s mother was terrified of her daughter’s free-spirited-ness, and tried to rein it in with common sense and tough love. As an adult still following her mother’s “rules”, she not only had lost her money, her home, and her relationship, she had also lost her self. Realizing she literally had nothing left to lose, Victoria understood that in order to live her truest life, she had to be willing to find a way to let go of her fears and the nagging voice in the back of her head.

Embarking on a metaphoric and literal road trip to find her way home to her truest self, Victoria chose to become intentionally homeless. Along the way, she learned how to reprogram the messages she had internalized, taking inspiration from her father Vincent Price’s example: his love for people and compassion for others, his generosity of spirit and simple kindnesses, his enthusiasm for new experiences, and his love of life. As she got to know her father again through attending horror conventions and celebrations of his life, Victoria decided to live as what she came to call THE WAY OF BEING LOST. Victoria learned how to reincorporate her father’s joie de vivre into her own life journey.

Reviews for “the Way of Being Lost”:

“Discovering the religious perspective of interspirituality proved to be decisive in Price’s growth and healing, and she offers a five-step process to help others “release qualities that may once have served us but no longer do. Heartfelt testimony of an arduous search for self-affirmation that will appeal to fellow seekers. “ – Kirkus Reviews

“As one who’s lost his way more than a few times, I found this book true to the bone, hopeful to the core, and wonderfully well-written. Victoria Price tells a personal story so brilliantly it allows her readers to shine a bright light on their own experiences of getting lost. In a world of so many lost souls, she points the way to true north.” – Parker J. Palmer, Author of Let Your Life Speak, A Hidden Wholeness, and On the Brink of Everything

“The Way of Being Lost takes us on the most exquisite journey that one can take—the road home to one’s true self… told through the particular lens of the author’s life. Though it takes great courage to make this trip, the rewards are beyond measure. And in the case of The Way of Being Lost, the journey is beautifully told, universally relevant, and deeply meaningful.” – Christiane Northrup, M.D., New York Times bestselling author of Goddesses Never Age

“Too often we think that to lead a spiritual life requires doing everything right. That is not just a tall order, it is an erroneous one. Spirituality is about a quest for a home in love, which we will find when we finally recognize that our truest selves are calling us home. As Victoria Price knows, this journey may come later than we hoped, but it bears the fruit of our life experience, and takes its own time to ripen. This beautiful recounting of Victoria’s voyage shows us a path for discovering the Third Way and living it fully.” – Fr. Richard Rohr, Founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation

Navigating Life: Things I Wish My Mother Had Told Me

Things I WishWith charming candor and insight, Bergen addresses her college-bound daughter, Charlotte, on subjects such as love, friendship, education, and work. The book’s eight essays offer advice on facing “the hidden horrors and private joys of adult life”: conversation tactics gleaned from friends and cab drivers, the importance of dental care (“This is America and teeth matter”), and impulse control (“learn why you drink”). She discusses career moves and handling prickly employers and sudden terminations with grace before meaningfully recounting her experience with depression and the death of her alcoholic father. Her comments on divorce are wise and sensitive, stressing the value of romantic love despite its risk, “the daily glory of understanding and being understood.” Bergen is at her most poignant when describing the fluctuations of intimacy and parental control with a child on the verge of adulthood: “I still watch over you but now you watch me too. I am not used to the scrutiny.” Bergen’s style belongs to the tradition of Michel de Montaigne, providing guidance through an alchemy of personal reminiscence and thoughts on the general human condition. Her story may not be remarkably exciting, but it is well told and piercing in its honesty.

SuperBetter

SuperBetterSuperBetter
By Jane McGonigal

An innovative guide to living gamefully, based on the program that has already helped nearly half a million people achieve remarkable personal growth.

In 2009, internationally renowned game designer Jane McGonigal suffered a severe concussion. Unable to think clearly or work or even get out of bed, she became anxious and depressed, even suicidal. But rather than let herself sink further, she decided to get better by doing what she does best: she turned her recovery process into a resilience-building game. What started as a simple motivational exercise quickly became a set of rules for post-traumatic growth that she shared on her blog. These rules led to a digital game and a major research study with the National Institutes of Health. Today nearly half a million people have played SuperBetter to get stronger, happier, and healthier.

But the life-changing ideas behind SuperBetter are much bigger than just one game. In this book, McGonigal reveals a decade’s worth of scientific research into the ways all games including videogames, sports, and puzzles change how we respond to stress, challenge, and pain. She explains how we can cultivate new powers of recovery and resilience in everyday life simply by adopting a more gameful mindset. Being gameful means bringing the same psychological strengths we naturally display when we play games such as optimism, creativity, courage, and determination to real-world goals.

Drawing on hundreds of studies, McGonigal shows that getting superbetter is as simple as tapping into the three core psychological strengths that games help you build: your ability to control your attention, and therefore your thoughts and feelings; your power to turn anyone into a potential ally, and to strengthen your existing relationships; and your natural capacity to motivate yourself and super-charge your heroic qualities, like willpower, compassion, and determination.

SuperBetter contains nearly 100 playful challenges anyone can undertake in order to build these gameful strengths. It includes stories and data from people who have used the SuperBetter method to get stronger in the face of illness, injury, and other major setbacks, as well as to achieve goals like losing weight, running a marathon, and finding a new job.

As inspiring as it is down to earth, and grounded in rigorous research, SuperBetter is a proven game plan for a better life. You’ll never say that something is just a game again.
