Full Cup, Thirsty Spirit Nourishing the Soul When Lifes Just Too Much by Karen Horneffer-Ginter

It seems that everyone is busy these days. The world is full of information, full of obligations, full of friends and family, full of everything-except fulfillment. Rushing has become a national epidemic. And even if you’re rushing between good things-if you have a happy family and a good job, if you have great friends and wonderful colleagues-you can feel drained and exhausted.

In Full Cup, Thirsty Spirit, psychologist Karen Horneffer-Ginter reaches out to readers who are feeling overwhelmed by the sheer volume of life. In this beautifully written book, she helps readers understand that it is this volume, this busyness, that creates a disconnect between their outer lives and inner selves. This separation causes our souls to wilt, and prevents us from experiencing joy and hearing our own wisdom about what needs to happen in our lives.

With an elegant narrative voice and the ability to inspire both laughter and compassion, Horneffer-Ginter takes readers on a journey to help them live more fully by exploring six shifts-learning to pause, turn within, fill up, come back to life, remember lightness, and embrace difficulty. Through a weave of personal stories, client experiences, and practical exercises, readers will learn to find balance in the swirl of daily life while reconnecting with what matters most.

Karen Horneffer-Ginter has been practicing psychology and teaching yoga and contemplative practices for over 16 years. She has also taught graduate students and health care professionals, along with directing a university-based holistic health care program, and co-founding the Center for Psychotherapy and Wellness in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The aim of Karen’s work is to reconnect people with the wisdom of their inner-life by reclaiming what gets lost amidst the busyness of day-to-day life: qualities such as stillness, self-care, creativity, joy, humor, gratitude, and compassion. Her intention is to support people in finding a sense of balance and sacredness in their lives.

Science and the Afterlife Experience: Evidence for the Immortality of Consciousness ~ Chris Carter

Reveals the evidence of life beyond death

• Examines 125 years of scientific research into reincarnation, apparitions, and communication with the dead showing these phenomena are real

• Reveals the existence of higher planes of consciousness where the souls of the dead can choose to advance or manifest once again on Earth

• Explains how these findings have been ignored and denied because they are incompatible with materialist doctrines

In this book, Chris Carter shows that evidence of life beyond death exists and has been around for millennia, predating any organized religion. Focusing on three key phenomena–reincarnation, apparitions, and communications from the dead–Carter reveals 125 years of documented scientific studies by independent researchers and the British and American Societies for Psychical Research that rule out hoaxes, fraud, and hallucinations and prove these afterlife phenomena are real.

The author examines historic and modern accounts of detailed past-life memories, visits from the deceased, and communications with the dead via medium and automatic writing as well as the scientific methods used to confirm these experiences. He explains how these findings on the afterlife have been ignored and denied because they are incompatible with the prevailing doctrine of materialism. Sharing messages from the dead themselves describing the afterlife, Carter reveals how consciousness exists outside the parameters of biological evolution and emerges through the medium of the brain to use the physical world as a springboard for growth. After death, souls can advance to higher planes of consciousness or manifest once again on Earth. Carter’s rigorous argument proves–beyond any reasonable doubt–not only that consciousness survives death and continues in the afterlife, but that it precedes birth as well.
