Product Description
Mary Stein took up aikido in her mid-fifties and quickly learned what it really means to face danger—both external and internal. In this powerful collection of short essays, she vividly describes learning an active and spirited defense on the mat, in the process uncovering a lifetime of habitual tensions and emotional reactions, of flight and ineffective fight. Stein’s thoughtful musings make clear how the practice of aikido can show what is really needed, right now. The Gift of Danger is aimed at men and women for whom the question of what is genuine in their lives has taken on fresh urgency.

Above all, Stein shows that a sense of danger has extraordinary importance for the martial artist; when danger is present during training, one learns to test limits and respond quickly and accurately. We follow the author as she stands, tentative but determined, on the razor’s edge between knowing and not knowing, judgment and impartiality—the only place where real growth can occur. The Gift of Danger is both a striking story of personal growth and a potent argument for aikido as a model for human behavior.

The Initial Year of My Death
Product Description
IS THERE LIFE AFTER DEATH? John Court, skeptical investigator of the paranormal, had his doubts about that. Then he dies in a catastrophic automobile accident and finds himself on the other side--alive, hyper-aware, and miraculously connected to his injured wife Claire. He's also connected to Rick Mendoza, the young veteran who caused his death, and whose blood has mingled with John's in Claire's bloodstream. Claire, who lost a hand in the accident, falls desperately sick. Three spirit-animals--Raven, Mallard, and Dog--warn John that his bitter resentment of Rick Mendoza is poisoning her. Groping to find his way, John follows Claire as she copes with tragic loss, and Rick as he struggles with rage and remorse. Their paths cross, collide, and finally meet at a wilderness estate guarded by a fierce proprietor. From there, John Court must find his way to a hidden world where lost souls writhe in anguish, awaiting rescue. Then, to the earthly place where Claire is once again trapped in catastrophe.
