Download and read online Knife Laws of the Fifty States in PDF and EPUB Today, more and more law-abiding citizens are carrying knives as part of their daily complement of gear. Knowing whether the knife you carry is legal to carry or even possess is both difficult and critically important, because carrying a prohibited knife can result in hefty fines, jail time, or both, along with a misdemeanor or felony criminal record that may haunt (and hinder) you for the rest of your life. Knife Laws of the Fifty States was written to help the law-abiding traveler and knife owner better understand the differing restrictions on knife carry that each state imposes on those within its borders. The carry restrictions for different types of knives under each state’s law, off-limits areas for knife carry, blade length restrictions, and carry mode restrictions are discussed, with excerpts of relevant state laws and selected case law citations also provided. Perhaps just as important, an analysis and discussion of knife restrictions for selected cities and towns in each state is included. Major cities covered include New York City, Boston, Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Atlanta and Las Vegas, to name a few. Written in a concise and easy to read format, this informative and extensively researched book will help you, the law-abiding traveler and knife owner, gain a greater understanding of the complexities of knife regulation in our great Nation. If you carry a knife, Knife Laws of the Fifty States belongs on your bookshelf!

Download and read online The Hitch hiker s Guide to the Bible in PDF and EPUB Colin writes: 'My aim is to help students, young Christians and church members see how the Bible holds together. I want to take them on a journey through the Bible showing how each part contributes distinctly to the whole. I want to excite them and encourage them to explore it themselves and provide them with the necessary tools. 'Many people have a high view of the Bible but rarely read it or know where to start. I suggest some new angles that might give them a desire to visit even the most unpromising parts. By giving background, insights and an overall view to each book and section I hope people will say "Oh I see now" and then go on and read for themselves.'

Download and read online A Guide to the Phenomenology of Religion in PDF and EPUB The phenomenological method in the study of religions has provided the linchpin supporting the argument that Religious Studies constitutes an academic discipline in its own right and thus that it is irreducible either to theology or to the social sciences. This book examines the figures whom the author regards as having been most influential in creating a phenomenology of religion. Background factors drawn from philosophy, theology and the social sciences are traced before examining the thinking of scholars within the Dutch, British and North American 'schools' of religious phenomenology.
Download and read online Retreats Fast Track to Freedom A Guide for Leaders and Practitioners in PDF and EPUB Since Advanced Yoga Practices (AYP) was started in 2003, the number of people utilizing this open source system of full-scope yoga practices has grown steadily around the world. It has evolved from being primarily an internet resource to a shelf-full of books, and now to increasing "real-world" activities including meditation groups, hands-on training, and retreats organized and run by those who choose to share the knowledge and experiences that come with the effective application of the practices. This small volume called "Retreats" has been written to provide guidelines for assisting those who wish to organize and implement AYP retreats. It is also for those interested in attending retreats for personal benefit and for benefiting the world through the systematic cultivation of Abiding Inner Silence, and its practical applications in daily living. The experience with AYP retreats has been very good, and this book is offered in the hope that many more retreats will be conducted around the world. "Retreats" is the tenth book in the AYP Enlightenment Series by Yogani, preceded by "Eight Limbs of Yoga," "Bhakti and Karma Yoga," "Self-Inquiry," "Diet, Shatkarmas and Amaroli," "Samyama," "Asanas, Mudras and Bandhas," "Tantra," "Spinal Breathing Pranayama," and "Deep Meditation." Yogani is also the author of two highly-regarded user-friendly textbooks providing detailed instructions on full-scope yoga practices, "Advanced Yoga Practice - Easy Lessons for Ecstatic Living, Volumes 1 & 2," and a spiritual adventure novel, "The Secrets of Wilder - A Story of Inner Silence, Ecstasy and Enlightenment."

Download and read online Country Path Conversations in PDF and EPUB First published in German in 1995, volume 77 of Heidegger’s Complete Works consists of three imaginary conversations written as World War II was coming to an end. Composed at a crucial moment in history and in Heidegger's own thinking, these conversations present meditations on science and technology; the devastation of nature, the war, and evil; and the possibility of release from representational thinking into a more authentic relation with being and the world. The first conversation involves a scientist, a scholar, and a guide walking together on a country path; the second takes place between a teacher and a tower-warden, and the third features a younger man and an older man in a prisoner-of-war camp in Russia, where Heidegger’s two sons were missing in action. Unique because of their conversational style, the lucid and precise translation of these texts offers insight into the issues that engaged Heidegger’s wartime and postwar thinking.

Download and read online Catholic Guide to Depression in PDF and EPUB How the saints, the sacraments, and psychiatry can help you break depression's grip and find happiness again Countless Christians—including scores of saints—have suffered profound, pervasive sorrow that modern psychiatrists call “depression.” Then, as now, great faith and even fervent spiritual practices have generally failed to ease this wearying desolation of soul. In these pages, Catholic psychiatrist Aaron Kheriaty reviews the effective ways that have recently been devised to deal with this grave and sometimes deadly affliction — ways that are not only consistent with the teachings of the Church, but even rooted in many of those teachings. Extensive clinical experience treating patients with depression has shown Dr. Kheriaty that the confessional can’t cure neuroses, nor can the couch forgive sin. Healing comes only when we integrate the legitimate discoveries of modern psychology and pharmacology with spiritual direction and the Sacraments, giving particular attention to the wisdom of the Church Fathers and the saints. Here, with the expert help of Dr. Kheriaty, you’ll learn how to distinguish depression from similarlooking but fundamentally different mental states such as guilt, sloth, the darkness of sin, and the sublime desolation called “dark night of the soul” that is, in fact, a privileged spiritual trial sent to good souls as a special gift from God. You’ll come to know how to identify the various types of depression and come to understand the interplay of their often manifold causes, biological, psychological, behavioral, cultural, and, yes, moral. Then you’ll learn about exciting breakthroughs in pharmacological and other medical treatments, the benefits and limitations of psychotherapy, the critical place that spiritual direction must have in your healing, and the vital role that hope — Christian hope — can play in driving out depression.
