The story of Andrew Jackson's improbable ascent to the White House, centered on the handlers and propagandists who made it possible Andrew Jackson was volatile and prone to violence, and well into his forties his sole claim on the public's affections derived from his victory in a thirty-minute battle at New Orleans in early 1815. Yet those in his immediate circle believed he was a great man who should be president of the United States. Jackson's election in 1828 is usually viewed as a result of the expansion of democracy. Historians David and Jeanne Heidler argue that he actually owed his victory to his closest supporters, who wrote hagiographies of him, founded newspapers to savage his enemies, and built a political network that was always on message. In transforming a difficult man into a paragon of republican virtue, the Jacksonites exploded the old order and created a mode of electioneering that has been mimicked ever since. !--[endif]--

Inspired by great figures from Emerson and Nietzsche to Madonna and Serena Williams, this engaging philosophical essay explores the workings of self-confidence and how to develop it. Where does self-confidence come from? How does it work? What makes it stronger or weaker? Why are some people more confident than others? Is it only a question of temperament or the result of conscious self-improvement? How do you get closer to those who stand out thanks entirely to their confidence in themselves? Drawing on philosophical texts, ancient wisdom, positive psychology, and a wide range of case studies that feature famous thinkers, artists, and athletes, but also unsung heroes such as a fighter pilot and an urgent-care doctor, Charles Pépin brings to light the strange alchemy that is self-confidence. In doing so, he gives us the keys to having more confidence in ourselves.

A book to help you achieve mindfulness and practice meditation while looking at the world's greatest works of art. Psychiatrist and leading meditation practitioner Christophe André guides you through the art of mindfulness, beginning with art itself. Looking at Mindfulness collects classic and esoteric paintings, from Rembrandt to Hopper to Magritte, and offers a lucid commentary on the inner workings of each. André describes the dynamic on the canvas, and turns to the viewer's own reactions, exploring the connection between what we see and what we feel. Moving beyond the art on the page, André teaches us what it means to consider our surroundings, our daily interactions and obligations, and their effect on our inner well-being and mental clarity. The paintings are a visual and tangible first step to understanding mindfulness and the benefits of living in the moment. In practicing mindfulness, within ourselves and out in the world, each of us can make immediate, meaningful, and permanent changes in our well-being and the well-being of others. Beautifully written, wonderfully accessible for any novice or expert, Looking at Mindfulness delivers practical steps and a comprehensive understanding of the practice and meaning of mindfulness and meditation. An authentic and effortless voice, André brings clarity to what it means to live mindfully and how we can make a more conscious effort to do so.

An accessible exploration of best-selling author's most famous work, The Map of Consciousness, that helps readers experience healing and transcendence. We are all born with a level of consciousness, an energetic frequency within the vast field of consciousness. And with The Map of Consciousness, we can truly understand the total spectrum of human consciousness. Using a unique muscle-testing method, Dr. David R. Hawkins conducted more than 250,000 calibrations during 20 years of research to define a range of values, attitudes, and emotions that correspond to levels of consciousness. This range of values-along with a logarithmic scale of 1 to 1,000-became the Map of Consciousness, which Dr. Hawkins first wrote about in his best-selling book, Power vs. Force. With the Map, Dr. David R. Hawkins laid out the entire spectrum of consciousness, from the lower levels of Shame, Guilt, Apathy, Fear, Anger, and Pride; to Courage, Acceptance, and Reason; all the way up to the more expanded levels of Love, Ecstasy, Peace, and Enlightenment. These "higher" energy fields are a carrier wave of immense life energy. An essential primer on the late Dr. David R. Hawkins's teachings on human consciousness and their associated energy fields, The Map of Consciousness Explained offers readers an introduction and deeper understanding of the Map, with visual charts and practical applications to help them heal, recover, and evolve to higher levels of consciousness and energy. This book is a light unto the path of any individual who wants to become more effective in any area of life.

L'été deux-mille douze tirait doucement à sa fin. Août venait de s'effacer sous la pluie et de céder la place à septembre. Depuis les premiers jours du neuvième mois de l'année, Bruxelles semblait avoir opté pour un chapeau bleu foncé et ne daignait plus s'en séparer. La capitale belge paraissait également bien décidée à séquestrer le soleil en son ciel. Le jaune étincelant de l'astre solaire redonnait joie et énergie à ses rues et à ses jardins. Les rires fusaient de toutes parts sur les terrasses tels des feux d'artifice sonores, renvoyant aux oubliettes les soirées ternes et pluvieuses des journées précédentes. Laura passa la tête à travers la fenêtre grande ouverte du salon. Une brise légère faisait valser la robe verte des grands arbres sur la Place du Châtelain. Le marché battait son plein et le parvis était noir de monde comme tous les mercredis de beau temps. Ses amies Solène, Charlotte et Natasha n'allaient plus tarder à arriver! "Au-delà des Dunes" est un roman initiatique. Un regard positif et poétique sur la vie. C'est une ode à la joie et au bonheur.

Como superar os sentimentos que impedem a sua felicidade. 1,7 milhão de livros vendidos no mundo. "Todas as vezes que nos sentimos feridos, procuramos culpar alguém. Quanto mais acusamos (a nós ou aos demais) pelo nosso sofrimento, mais a experiência se repete. A acusação só serve para nos deixar infelizes. Porém, quando olhamos com compaixão aquele que sofre, tudo à nossa volta começa a se transformar." – LISE BOURBEAU Nossos problemas de ordem física, emocional e mental são fruto de cinco feridas que trazemos da infância: rejeição, abandono, humilhação, traição e injustiça. Para tentar fazê-las desaparecer, desenvolvemos máscaras. Porém, com o passar do tempo, essas feridas se tornam ainda mais profundas e nos distanciam de quem somos de verdade. Por meio de descrições detalhadas das feridas e de suas respectivas máscaras, Lise Bourbeau mostra como elas podem se refletir em nossa personalidade e até mesmo no formato do nosso corpo. Você vai descobrir que é possível detectar a origem das dificuldades que enfrentamos. Dessa forma, podemos empreender uma jornada de cura, aceitando as experiências do passado e perdoando todos os aspectos de nós mesmos.
