The Illusion of Time: Breaking Free from the Pu...

What is time? We give it so much importance, but as Eckhart Tolle teaches, we can only ever experience the timeless present. The Illusion of Time explores this paradox, pointing the way out of a dysfunctional relationship to time—and into the fullness of life in the here and now. In this empowering two-session program, Eckhart exposes the roots of our obsession with time to help us free ourselves from the ongoing stream of thoughts about the past and future—and reconnect with the depths of who we are beyond the mind. Discover: Eckhart’s secret for less stress and greater productivity. How to get past the nagging sense that “something’s missing.” The source of insight and wisdom greater than our intellect. How to realign—with nature, life, and what is. “This moment is life—whether I’m warm and dry or if it’s raining and I can’t find a taxi,” says Eckhart. The Illusion of Time brings you his practical guidance in embracing the present—and awakening to who we are in our eternal, essential nature. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Eckhart Tolle.

Last Words From Montmartre
19,90 CHF *

'I’d put  Last Words in a category that includes much of Kathy Acker and Henry Miller. Stein, too...It’s a deeply personal text. Yet it bears reading and rereading an abundance of times.'—Eileen Myles,  Bookforum 'Qiu’s voice, both colloquial and metaphysical, enchants.... It would be wrong to interpret the book’s—or, for that matter, the author’s—ultimate surrender to death as a rejection of the richness of life; rather, like Goethe’s young Werther, this 'last testament' (an alternative translation of the title) affirms the power of literature.' — Publishers Weekly “ Last Words from Montmartre is urgent, ecstatic, unbridled, and breathtakingly intimate. Qiu Miaojin is a writer who truly defies categorization, and this book, her last—part confession, part love letter, part fiction, part memoir, part suicide notes—is a thrilling testament to her original mind and impassioned heart.” —Sarah Shun-lien Bynum “ Last Words from Montmartre is deeply, soulfully moving in its excruciating revelation of the author’s innermost self, which is after all what makes the magic of literature. I felt a secret intimacy with Qiu Miaojin from the first page.” —Wang Dan   “Qiu Miaojin...had an exceptional talent. Her voice is assertive, intellectual, witty, lyrical, and intimate. Several years after her death, her works continue to command a huge following.” —Tze-lan Deborah Sang “A flawless translation.”—Josh Stenberg, World Literature Today   “What makes Kerouac or Salinger timeless is not necessarily literary, but perhaps didactic: the fact that there is wisdom to be found at the fountain of youth, no matter what time one arrives. Of course, there is also a saintliness reserved for those authors who are able to make an interesting life story for themselves, and that order includes Qiu Miaojin.” —Bonnie Huie, PEN America blog   “Qiu’s unique literary style mingl[es] cerebral, experimental language use, psychological realism, biting social critique through allegory, and a surrealist effect deriving from the use of arrestingly unusual metaphors.” —Fran Martin 'In  Last Words from Montmartre, selves and emotions hurtle through time and space with terrifying force — both destructive and productive — and ecstasy and pain exist in very close proximity.” — FullStop “ Last Words from Montmartre [is] intense, brutal and beautiful. A love letter and a suicide note.' — The Rumblr  “Few writers use the confession and aphorism as purely and effectively as Qiu, whose poetry offers a distinct type of clarity; Last Words from Montmartre achieves a profoundly intimate portrait of an individual whose life unravels before us.” —Jenn Mar, Rain Taxi  'Ari Larissa Heinrich’s translation is so skillful because he is able to understand Qiu as an artist, including all her tiny nuances, and her importance as an artistic figure…This is a novel of passion: the passion to love, to understand, to know, to express, to connect, to live and to die with reason...As readers, when a writer lays bare for us with such brutal honesty, truth will always be what we see…This isn’t a book of love letters or a book of suicide notes; its a testament to the power of artistic courage in the face of pain, misery and isolation.' —Monica Carter,  Three Percent  “Thanks to Heinrich's skill and judgment, Qiu’s passion is as overwhelming and relentless a force in translation as in the original. Qiu’s prose strikes the reader like a tsunami: waters of an unassuming height slowly but assuredly surge onto the land until they fill every room and take every object not nailed down. This is not simply passion, but what the Chinese call qing, which is passion as a full-blown aesthetic

Boomer's Guide to Story
21,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Fundamentally a book of ideas, 'The Boomer's Guide to Story' consists of roughly five hundred short essays that study and analyze around three hundred modern-day stories. A rich source of timeless concepts, universal insights, and ultimate truths, the book has as its natural market the eighty million baby boomers in the United States. Yet the collection of considered novels, screenplays, plays, ballads and more that dates from circa 1930 should appeal to readers of all ages. A substantial guide that can be 'dipped into,' due to its unique approach to each example, it highlights a variety of important works from 'Citizen Kane,' 'To Kill a Mockingbird,' 'Taxi Driver,' to 'The Sting.' Literature in all its forms is a treasure-trove of insight and wisdom, and this book uncovers a great deal of it. Dramatic, illuminating, and peppered with humor, it exposes the profound, intriguing, and observant qualities of a story that often go unnoticed. With compliments to many highly gifted writers and storytellers, it should revive a great many cherished and wonderful memories. To art, to art! To the great storyteller's art.
