"In How to Sit, Tyrese Coleman investigates the border between fiction and non-fiction in a way that calls to mind Tim O'Brien's powerhouse The Things They Carried, but here the subject is the trials of black girlhood and womanhood, the dislocation of class mobility, and the impossibility of making sense of it all. Coleman has written a short work with more insight, heart and truth than the entire catalogues of even some of the best writers."--Rion Amilcar Scott, author of Insurrections [back cover].

Perhaps you’ve thought that the traditional ways of understanding God are lacking in resonance and relevance—that there must be more to the concept of divinity than the anthropomorphic, gender-exclusionary, ethically and logically problematic God of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. If so, this beautiful book may be the path to enlightenment that you’ve been seeking. Uthimaniyya, or Trans-Sufism, embraces the idea that there is an ultimate spiritual experience, called The Consciousness of the Eternal Now, or Sitting on the Throne of God. This experience is not dependent on any past religion—instead, it is realized through observing a mathematically mystical version of the Seventh Day (the Throne Sabbath) that is more compatible with a belief in God as everything, and everything as God. Since a God that is everything cannot have a personhood, it is referred to as the impersonal God, or the Godless God. The Throne Sabbath is based on a radical reinterpretation of the biblical and qur’anic myth of the creation of the world in six days, and a seventh day when the Creator rested (Bible) or retreated to His throne (Qur’an). Inspiring and transcendent, How to Sit on the Throne of the Godless God is the guide you need to access a new viewpoint.

A manual for understanding the anatomical and emotional components of posture in order to heal chronic pain • Contains self-help exercises and ergonomics information to help correct unhealthy movement patterns • Teaches how to adopt suitable posture in the modern sedentary world Many people cause their own back and body pain through their everyday bad postural and movement habits. Many sense that their poor posture is probably the root of the problem, but they are unable to change long-standing habits. In The New Rules of Posture, Mary Bond approaches postural changes from the inside out. She explains that healthy posture comes from a new sense we can learn to feel, not by training our muscles into an ideal shape. Drawing from 35 years of helping people improve their bodies, she shows how habitual movement patterns and emotional factors lead to unhealthy posture. She contends that posture is the physical action we take to orient ourselves in relation to situations, emotions, and people; in order to improve our posture, we need to examine both our physical postural traits and the self-expression that underlies the way we sit, stand, and move. The way we walk, she says, is our body’s signature. Bond identifies the key anatomical features that impact alignment, particularly in light of our modern sedentary lives, and proposes six zones that help create postural changes: the pelvic floor, the breathing muscles, the abdomen, the hands, the feet, and the head. She offers self-help exercises that enable healthy function in each zone as well as information on basic ergonomics and case histories to inspire us to think about our own habitual movements. This book is a resource for Pilates, yoga, and dance instructors as well as healthcare professionals in educating people about postural self-care so they can relieve chronic pain and enjoy all life activities with greater ease.
