There are few places left in this world where we can escape the influence and din of progress and technology. Voices from every direction and perspective beckon, even push, us forward toward more, greater and faster technology, with the teaser of more wealth, more possessions, more pleasure, and, consequently, more happiness and contentment. This is how the present American dream is now defined, and every investment broker and political candidate promises that if we trust them, we also can trust that one day it will all be ours. But have we become so blinded by the material, industrial, progressivist culture in which we live that we've lost the ability, not just to achieve, but to even discern what true happiness and beauty is? What criteria do we use to plan for tomorrow, for the future, for retirement, and when this life is over, are we anything more than just fertilizer to give back to Mother Earth what we have so irresponsibility taken from her? And in the end, with all the opportunities we've had in this life, what is important? What lasts? Has our culture's enticement to always look for an easier, labor saving means to do everything left us a flabby, flaccid culture? In this book Marcus Grodi discusses what he and his family discovered, mostly by surprise, after moving from the city to 25-acres of rural Ohio farm land. This involved a radical shift in priorities for all of them, but mostly it helped them discover some critical truths about life, simplicity, detachment, about our relationship to nature, and to nature's Creator, that apply regardless of where a person lives. He offers wonderful reflections about life from this “going back to the land”experience as a metaphor of authentic conversion and drawing closer to God.

Awakening in the Northwest Territories is an inspirational, humorous and absorbing account of one Boomer’s transformative life journey over a sixty year period. Follow Alastair’s story from his strict Catholic upbringing in England to Canada by himself at the age of 19 in search of love and adventure, where he quickly acquires a family, and over the next twenty years, climbs the corporate ladder and builds up a flourishing business, all of which subsequently go sour. He takes an early retirement and goes to live in the country in an idyllic retreat, but after a year, he feels unfulfilled and senses that there is much more to life than just being “comfortable.” Making a conscious decision to live the examined life, and having bought unquestioningly into consumerist society for so long, he chooses to go in a new direction by living with a small band of First Nations people in a remote fly-in community in the Northwest Territories. Cultural differences and a challenging environment ignite fresh perspectives, inspire a new way of life, and fuel his soul-searching.

The price we pay for today’s fast-paced, always-connected life is often stress, anxiety, and depression. While drawing on ancient wisdom, Donald Altman embraces twenty-first-century brain science to create practical, everyday strategies for experiencing a less-encumbered, less-entangled state of being. These techniques reactivate natural abilities you already possess. The four keys for unlocking mindfulness are the body, the mind, the spirit, and relationships. Altman presents practices for turning each key toward contentment, confidence, and joy, including shifting our mental and emotional perceptions, inhabiting the body and its "sense-abilities,” exploring spiritual connection, and tapping into the healing powers of community and relationship. Inviting and accessible to those new to mindfulness but comprehensive enough for more experienced practitioners, these powerful tools will help you transform your life from the inside out.
