Hungry for Life: A Memoir Unlocking the Truth Inside an Anorexic Mind (Bargain Read)

In this painfully moving memoir, take a firsthand look at anorexia through the eyes of a young girl. Even in kindergarten, Rachel Richards knows something isn’t right. By leading us through her distorted thoughts, she shines a light on the experience and mystery of mental illness.

As she grows up, unable to comprehend or communicate her inner trauma, Rachel lashes out, hurting herself, running away from home, and fighting her family. Restricting food gives her the control she craves. But after being hospitalized and force-fed, Rachel only retreats further into herself.

With a driving perfectionism, she graduates college with honors. But at sixty-nine pounds, Rachel is a shell of nervous and obsessive behaviors that have controlled her life. Years of self-harm and self-loathing have fueled the inner battles between good and evil, health and sickness, and life and death.

Acting on stage offers her moments of freedom from the skewed perceptions she’s constructed over the years. But her dream of a career in theater is not enough to save her. What is the secret that will finally unleash her will to recover?

If you or someone you know suffers from an eating disorder or is a concerned parent, is anxious about weight and dieting, has an addiction, or wants to learn more about the mystery of how an eating disorder develops and the multifaceted and complex road to recovery, this book is a must-read!

Fancy Prison: Calling BS on the Child Welfare Industry

An instinctual pull as old as time – a grandmother wanting to hold her newborn grandchild – bring readers into an unbelievable ordeal. Author Tina Fumo travels to a small town in Canada and finds herself in the most stressful situation of her life. The ‘authorities’ have apprehended her two week old granddaughter. What her and her family go through to get back their baby will absolutely shock you. You’ll wonder if this is really Canada. You will surely cry. You may even laugh. But make no mistake…what you find out in the end will make your jaw drop.


Meet Tina Fumo-Martin

Fancy Prison is Tina’s first book. It’s a memoir and plea to advocate for innocent children, all in one. Tina thinks ALL children are beautiful and deserve the utmost of our attention, energy and care. It comes on the heels of, yet another, multi million dollar, wasteful government election and Canadians have had enough. Rather than wallow in anger over government’s stupidity, Tina’s book is a call to action to solidify what is already so positive and so loving about our country and move forward as one, with our children firmly by our sides.

Don’t Hold Your Breath

Attempting to live without eating might sound like an unorthodox idea, but what if it allowed you to have telepathic abilities and a way to travel through different dimensions? Sounds crazy, right? To the Breatharians, however, these are entirely plausible ideas.

Follow James Tyler Ball as he uncovers the practices and sometimes outlandish beliefs of the Breatharian community. Join him as he explores the lives and teachings of several prominent Breatharian figures. From diets based entirely on McDonald’s Double Quarter-Pounder with Cheese meals to people living on nothing but air. As well as deaths, cult-like groups and the naively hopeful human nature behind it all, this book explores Breatharianism’s controversies.

By the end of this book, you will have explored an entire world of new-age spirituality, ideas surrounding consciousness and even the possibility of a second Earth existing. You might even come away with a newfound respect for beef burgers and their alleged life-preserving properties!

Interview with an Oracle, Profound Revelations about Our World

If you’re concerned about the current state of the world, the political turmoil in our country, the future of our country, and the future of Western civilization, this book is an important read.
On an extended trek into the vast wilderness of the Himalayas, explorer M.G. Hawking chanced on an extraordinary opportunity. A series of adventures led him to an ancient Oracle Temple in the highlands of Tibet where he encountered a true shamanistic Oracle from the esoteric B’on wisdom tradition. The author’s discussions with the Oracle covered a wide range of subjects, revealing a series of profound insights.
A brief excerpt of the Oracle’s comments regarding our present civilization: “The life of a government springs from the life of its people, the life of the people from the life of their mind, hence the life of their mind determines the future of their land. This future is found only in freedom—from deception, from destruction, from the false—life is found in freedom to recognize and express the true. Among your Founders were enlightened ones; your form of government was designed and implemented to assure individual freedom and nurture individual spirituality and creativity. It has undergone an immense swing to the opposite pole; it now assures nothing but mass order at any cost and nurtures nothing but the imposition of mass materiality and mass productivity. Freedom is gone, replaced by economic seeking and monetary accumulation. Yet this materiality is utterly and absolutely false. The resulting emptiness of life and alteration, depletion and destruction of the earth telegraph this with alarming clarity.
“In your country what was once a government of reason and law has been replaced by a tyranny of men. The sovereignty of the people has become a sovereignty of manipulators, politicians as conscious agents of a great deception, the power of which dements even more than it corrupts. Your society is divided into a tiny group of men who choose and decide, a small number of others who know far less and decide nothing yet wield power in conformity with the hidden policies—those who gather in your congress to go through the motions of democracy’s ghost—and the masses, compelled to act and live in total incomprehension of the manipulation of their movements, and so their lives.” Author’s note: “As the Oracle expressed this, there was no trace of mocking or bitterness in his voice, only a certain weariness, a calm acceptance of what is.”
An extraordinary account that is compelling, thought provoking, and richly enlightening, this book will impact you and linger in your thoughts long after the last words have been read. Includes an important chapter on the history of government through its various forms and outcomes. 2020 Edition, Kindle e-reader page count 296 (estimated, actual count varies depending on the reading device used). A Kindle Unlimited Book. Includes Reference Citations and Source Material. For more information, please see the ‘Look Inside’ feature on the book’s Amazon page. Thank you.

Meet Dr. Philosophe

My name is Morhaf Al Achkar. I was born in Aleppo-Syria in 1983. I migrated to the United States in 2006 after finishing medical school. I also obtained a Ph.D. in Education from Indiana University. Currently, I am a practicing family physician and associate professor at the University of Washington.

In 2016, I was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. Since then, my research has focused on the experience of patients living with cancers. My first book is based on interviews I did with 39 patients who live, like me, with advanced illness. I explored how these patients find meaning, cope, and build resilience

Writing my memoir was my attempt to reconstruct my narrative. I did not want to be defined as a cancer patient nor as someone living with resilience despite cancer. I wanted to be me again: A Syrian Immigrant.

REVIEWS

“What a gift to read about in a day and time where everyone remains so self-centered and the news is so depressing. THIS IS NOT THAT BOOK!!!! This is where you are uplifed and encouraged! What are you waiting for?!?! Get out – enjoy life – do good! Thank you for sharing your heart and passion for life!”

“Great read, very inspiring. The author’s journey touched my soul. This book is a road map for anyone looking for adventure and wanting to make a difference in the world.”

“As a longtime, solo backpacker volunteer traveler myself, I am glad to see other female volunteers sharing their experiences to encourage others to do the same. We can all help each other out – and doing so in other countries breaks down barriers and stereotypes while buidling empathy and understanding.”

“If you’re intending on setting off into the world, and thinking of volunteering in third-world countries, this book gives a lot of tips and experiences about the subject. The author combines her own experiences working with children and animals in very undeveloped regions, with lists of items you would need to know if you want to follow in her footsteps. A useful book to have with you on your journey.”

“Do good and be good! I love this book and the author’s down to earth manner and real-life stories! I couldn’t help using one of the stories in a sermon I was preaching because of its relevance and the lesson learned (something that is soooo valuable).”


Meet Kandy Ostrosky

Kandy is from Hamilton, Ontario. She has been a registered practical nurse since 2012 and began her career on a stroke rehabilitation unit. Currently, she works on a neurobehavioural unit.

The Masters Speak, Twenty-Seven Dialogues: The Himalayan Journals

The dialogues presented in this book are transcribed from explorer M.G. Hawking’s journals and field notes chronicling his conversations with extraordinary men and women he encountered in a remote region of the Himalayas, allowing readers to experience first-hand their expressions of the fundamental knowledge, essential principles of consciousness and specific practices that can enable unparalleled abilities and powers, ones not normally recognized or accepted in the Western world as part of the field of human activity.
5-Star Reviews: “What a rare resource! Hawking brings together an important anthology from an amazing number of adepts, masters … with whom he engaged during a five-year trip to the Himalayas. I took pages of notes; highly beneficial for anyone on the path to enlightenment.” — “Nothing else like this out there! Absolutely mind blowing. I am a long time student of the ‘occult’ and this book’s knowledge far surpasses anything I have ever read in over 50 years of reading! Made abstract concepts clear. Truly life changing for me.” — “Masters Speak is an amazing read; the book is riveting.”
“The knowledge and techniques presented in this book arise directly from the esoteric teachings of profoundly enlightened individuals. If studied with patience and fully integrated into your core belief system, these teachings will lay the foundation necessary to enable you to acquire abilities that most people would say are unbelievable or even impossible. Yet nothing explained in this volume is supernatural or beyond the ability of a properly equipped individual. These abilities are not miracles. Quite the contrary. They do not require any capacities that are not inherent in the human species as a whole, if those capacities are properly recognized and developed. These discourses are intended for those whose passion for knowledge has instilled an enduring aspiration to see things whole, to pursue the deepest understanding of consciousness and our true place and power in the Universe.” —M.G. Hawking
For untold millenniums this knowledge has been known only to a privileged few, revelations long concealed from the world at large. As entertaining as it is enlightening, this is an incomparable book for anyone on a spiritual path or seeking greater knowledge and personal power. 2021 Edition, e-reader page count 405 (estimated, varies with the reading device). Includes Reference Citations and a Supplemental Material Section. A Kindle Unlimited Book. For more information please see the ‘Look Inside’ feature on the book’s Amazon page. Thank you.
