    A Tree of Life: A Story in Words, Images, and Texts by: Katy Z. Allen Starting From: $10.00

    A Tree of Life: A Story in Word, Image and Text is “a meditation on our universal journey through trauma toward healing.” A series of about 60 double-page spreads unfolds a story from innocence to despair to understanding through a combination of poetic moments, quotes from Jewish tradition, and black-and-white photographs of trees. The book provides a tender yet powerful experience as a “tool for coping, for learning, and for growing” during the challenging times we face in our lives. For the reader, the journey is personal as well as universal as you engage visually, through ancient and modern words, and multi-dimensionally through the integration of all three media.

    Earth Etudes for Elul by: Katy Z. Allen Starting From: $10.00

    The month of Elul is a time for reflection, a time for t’shuvah, of turning and re-turning to G!d and to our best selves, in preparation for the Days of Awe. It is time for heshbon hanefesh, examining our hearts and souls. Elul is the time for us to begin to make atonement for the things we wish we had or hadn’t done, and to renew ourselves, to do all we can to get ourselves to change. To help you on this journey, you will find in this volume a series of reflections for the month of Elul, divrei Earth—teachings that connect Earth and Torah.  Use this volume to help you expand your own reflections about t’shuvah: read a few etudes a day or even select by theme. Themes include climate change, community and covenant, cycles, nature, gardening, personal behavior, rituals, and turning.

    These reflections, meditations filled with Jewish wisdom, are written by rabbis, hazzans, environmentalists, gardeners, activists, educators, storytellers, poets, scientists and other spiritual leaders, reflecting many points of view and ways of looking at the world and the process of t’shuvah.

    Homeokinetics: The Basics by: Arthur S. Iberall Starting From: $10.00

    Homeokinetics is the physics of complex systems. These are universes, galaxies, or planetary subsystems, or even social systems. A complex system is one where there is a tremendous amount of internal exchange by the actors. The physics of complex systems is played out on the basis of trying to understand what these complex internal agents are doing. This book is for scientists in fields such as biology, economics, anthropology, political science, physiology, and experimental psychology. Whether a discipline studies atoms, molecules, cells, people, stars, galaxies, or universes, the same tools can be used to understand them.

    Sanctuary of Artemis by: Thea Iberall $15.00

    This collection of contextual poems explores the roots and origins of Western patriarchal culture through evolution, religion, neuroscience, history, mythology, symbolism, and linguistics. Thea Iberall is acutely aware of the great divide between scientists and artists. Contextual poetry is a form of expression, one that integrates the knowledge of multidisciplinary science and history with the insights and language of poetry.  For example, as a trained scientist in the area of neuroscience and human prehension, Iberall has a contextual poem The Evolutionary Record that traces the evolution of the human hand. In another example, the context to the poem On the Sanctuary of Artemis Dying discusses the evidence for the Goddess culture underlying Christianity.  While the collection is broad in its exploration, the poems are intensely focused on a very personal journey through life. This is a poetry of boundary integration. This is a poetry of profound knowledge.
