Bly, Robert & Marion Woodman, Facing the Shadow in Men & Women. There is a mystery around the word "shadow". Do women have a shadow or only men? Do ordinary people have a shadow or only politicians? We throw out parts of ourselves in childhood, or put them in a bag; it is precisely those abandoned parts that become the shadow, which can then act destructively and independently of our will. On the other hand, if these parts can be reclaimed, much of our vitality and passion returns. In this lively and funny presentation, Robert By and Marion Woodman, using stories, poems, music and discussion, challenge us to face the shadow in all areas of our lives, from politics to parenting.

Fossum, Merle, Catching Fire: Men in Recovery Coming to Terms with Their Lives. My all-time favorite book for every man has been retitled "Men in Recovery: Finding Our Direction! For me, it has more to do with being a man and surviving in this culture rather than being in recovery from something. The tape is an easy intro into the book and provides numerous connections for any man to see he's not the only one.

Kamm, Bob, Real Fatherhood: The path of lyrical parenting. In 1979, Bob Kamm gained custody of his four-year-old son, Ben. By the end of 1981, he faced the unavoidable fact that pursuing a career as a performing artist was incompatible with single-fatherhood. He barely touched his guitar for twenty years. During that time, he devoted himself to being the real and present dad his son deserved. Much of his experience during those first years of single-parenthood is chronicled in the book, Real Fatherhood. As he began work on this book, his passion for music returned full force and he knew it was time to give life to the songs he had created to chronicle and celebrate his experience of fatherhood. This CD is the result of that determination. www.kammtown.com or email@example.com. Available from www.1stbooks.com. 2002 ISBN: 09300 00672 Buy This CD!

O'Neill, Jessie, The Golden Ghetto: The psychology of affluence. It is a peculiarly American notion that money will guarantee happiness, bring us personal fulfillment, strengthen our relationships, give us smarter, better adjusted children - in short, make all our dreams come true. Here the author, granddaughter of Charles Erwin Wilson, one-time president of General Motors, provides a penetrating look at why attaining wealth proves to be a hollow achievement for many. She has based her professional practice on understanding and treating the problems of those who have amassed great wealth, and her book is both a description of their lives and an analysis of and prescription for the problems they've had to face. While the author's main focus is on the very rich, the lessons to be learned from their lives have a far broader application. This book is in fact inhabited by millions of Americans, rich and poor alike, who embrace and endlessly pursue the fantasy that more is better, while allowing all that is truly worthwhile - loving relationships, the selfless giving of oneself, and spiritual growth - to fall by the wayside. This books shows us how to right our own relationship with money, and offers insightful suggestions for repairing the psychological and cultural damage our misguided beliefs about money, power and happiness have caused.

Sun, John-Michael, Code Red. On April 5th, 2003, at the beginning of the Iraq war, an extraordinary event took place that changed me. Whether you believe my story or not, it doesn't change the truth; if everyone in this country could feel war, the nightmare of it, vicariously through the eyes, heart and mind of a child, peace would prevail. Code Red is my desperate plea for the thousands of innocent children, who have died, to the ones who have been ruined for life, to the ones who still have a chance to survive, and maybe someday live a normal lilfe. Listen to Code Red with an open heart, an open mind from beginning to end. Be willing to imagine bigger than you ever have. Journey to the deepest darkest scariest place in the world, the heart and mind of a child in the middle of a war. I promise, you will come away changed. It will make you cry and break your heart, yet, hopefully, inspire and motivate you to do more, for even in the middle of the "shock and awe" bombing, even in the horror of what's going on now, there is grace, a grace meant for you and me, for the whole world watching, a grace that is sent to awaken us from our deep sleep of denial. Consider all of it a gift from the voices from the grave and those still living. Listen, live, and learn. Share the gift and expand its sphere of influence. Change the world. Peace.
