The innovative program at the acclaimed Las Vegas Recovery Center, where Dr. Mel Pohl is the medical director, has helped thousands of chronic pain sufferers learn to thrive and reduce their pain's intensity without painkillers. Now, for the first time, The Pain Antidote shares this concrete program, which combines up-to-date research with state-of-the-art treatments and non-narcotic medications. The Pain Antidote offers tools and strategies--including a four-week jumpstart plan--to help anyone with chronic pain ease their suffering, restore their happiness, and live a rich, full life."--

"A great master once said, "The shortest distance between a human being and truth is a story." In Experiencing Spirituality, Ernest Kurtz and Katherine Ketcham take readers on a journey through storytelling as a means of self-discovery. Recounting and interpreting great wisdom stories from all ages and all cultures, as well as telling many of their own, the authors shed light on such experiences as awe, wonder, humor, confusion, and forgiveness. In story after story, seekers look to those whose lives reveal a special quality--sometimes called spirituality--and ask the masters what they must do to attain that same quality. The answer is simple: "Come, follow me, and see how I live." Experiencing Spirituality teaches through the example of human experience,"--Amazon.com
