The Daily Flame: 365 Love Letters From Your Inner Pilot Light

If your deepest, most divine self had a message for you, what would it be? In The Daily Flame, Dr. Lissa Rankin presents 365 love letters from your Inner Pilot Light—the guiding voice of your innermost truth. As Lissa explains:

“This book is intended to support the kind of intimacy, comfort, nourishment, and grace that happens when you make contact with the Source of all love that fuels your very existence. Regardless of your spiritual orientation, consider this book a prayer of sorts, one that invites you to gently, quietly reunite with the purest, most loving core of your being, the part that will help you navigate the in-between space in your spiritual life.”

Mind Over Medicine

Mind Over Medicine is a New York Times bestseller and has been translated into over twenty languages.

We’ve been led to believe that when we get sick, it’s our genetics. Or it’s just bad luck—and doctors alone hold the keys to optimal health. For years, Lissa Rankin, MD, believed the same. But when her own health started to suffer and she turned to Western medical treatments, she found that they not only failed to help; they made her worse. So she decided to take matters into her own hands.

Through her research, Dr. Rankin discovered that the health care she had been taught to practice was missing something crucial: a recognition of the body’s innate ability to self-repair and an appreciation for how we can control these self-healing mechanisms with the power of the mind.

The Fear Cure

What inspired me to write The Fear Cure?

“After writing Mind Over Medicine, I had a post-publishing epiphany. I realized that it’s all well and good to teach the 6 Steps to Healing Yourself, to invite people to do the deep transformational work that makes the body ripe for miracles and facilitates “spontaneous” remissions. But even if people are intuitive enough to tune into what their bodies need in order to heal, and even if they’re wise enough to write The Prescription for themselves, way too often, fear gets in the way. You may know what needs to change in your life, but if you’re not courageous enough to act upon your inner guidance, you’re likely to stay sick—and stuck.

That’s when I realized (with a gulp) that I needed to write a book about fear and courage.”

The Anatomy Of A Calling

In The Anatomy of a Calling, which has been described as a genre-busting “spiritual self-help book dressed up as a memoir,” Lissa Rankin, MD makes a simple yet revolutionary claim: We are all, every single one of us, heroes. We are all on what Joseph Campbell calls “a Hero’s Journey;” we are all on a mission to step into our true nature and fulfill the assignment our souls were sent to Earth to fulfill. Navigating the hero’s journey, Lissa argues, is one of the cornerstones of living a meaningful, authentic, healthy life. In clear, engaging prose, Lissa describes her entire spiritual journey for the first time—beginning with what she calls her “Perfect Storm” of events—and recounts the many transformative experiences that led to a profound awakening of her soul. Through her father’s death, her daughter’s birth, career victories and failures, and an ongoing struggle to identify as both a doctor and a healer, Lissa discovers a powerful self-awareness. 

What’s Up Down There

Suppose you had a wise, warm, funny best friend—who just happened to be a gynecologist. You’re out with the girls for cocktails and the conversation turns to sex, and then to girly parts. One by one, you start asking her all the questions you’ve secretly wondered about—and discover that you have a lot in common. If you were to write those questions down, then you’d have What’s Up Down There?, a life-changing little book that answers:

  • Do old ladies have saggy vaginas?
  • How do male gynecologists have a sex life without feeling like they’re stuck at the office?
  • Is it normal for your inner labia to hang out of your outer labia?
  • Can the baby feel its mom having sex during pregnancy?
  • How common is it for one’s boobs to be two totally different sizes?

And so much more! As outrageously funny as it is empowering, this book reveals how to love yourself and your body—and will have you recommending it to every woman you know.

Encaustic Art

With a history that stretches back to the hauntingly beautiful mummy portraits of Greco-Roman Egypt, encaustic art is now enjoying a renewal of popularity among artists and art lovers alike. Today, museums are staging exhibitions of encaustic art, workshops in the technique are thriving, and art collectors and dealers are assimilating encaustic art into their collections and galleries.

The word encaustic is taken from the Greek and means “to burn in.” In the encaustic process, pigmented wax is applied and then fused to a surface with heat. The result is a broad range of surface effects and a luminous translucency that is unique to the encaustic medium. Encaustic Art is a complete resource for artists who wish to learn to create fine art with wax. It features step-by-step techniques with easy-to-understand instructions and detailed illustrations, stunning examples of encaustic works of art (including sculpture), along with practical advice and thoughtful aesthetic observations from more than 60 professional artists working in the encaustic medium.
