Free: Roads to Meaning and Resilience with Cancer

Roads to Meaning and Resilience with CancerPursuing a more Purposeful Life? Assimilate stories from 39 patients with incurable Lung Cancer as they share their experiences, hopes, and strengths to find meaning in your life.

Life is an unfinished project, and similarly, finding meaning is an uncompleted task. But how exactly do we find meaning? How do people find strength? The diagnosis of cancer or other terminal cases create significant adversity. So how do people develop resilience? How do they keep going? These questions had been tackled for centuries by philosophy and religion. So what is there to add?

While there is no such thing as a School of Life Professor, you now have a viable alternative. Morhaf Al Achkar obtained his Ph.D in education and is currently a practicing family physician at the University of Washington. He was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer. Since then, his research has focused on the experiences of patients living with cancer. This book is based on interviews he did with 39 patients who live, like him, with advanced illness. He explored how these patients find meaning, cope, and build resilience. Using his own experiences and deep knowledge of philosophical concepts, Morhaf shares his understanding of a meaningful life from the perspective of someone aware of his own finitude.

Inside Roads to Meaning and Resilience with Cancer™, you will:

+ Confront questions about life, meaning, and your legacy before it is too late
+ Gain a new perspective on the meaning of living that transcends culture and social status
+ Learn countless coping strategies across various disciplines to build your individual Resilience
+ Acquire a positive and realistic perspective on your life that promotes hope and healing for your body, mind, and spirit.
+ And much, much more!

This is a compelling book by an author who is wearing multiple hats — as a doctor, an academic, a lung cancer advocate, and ultimately, a patient himself. Dr. Alachkar’s knowledge-based, yet deeply personal and relateable book will give you a variety of viewpoints on questions like the meaning of life, finding hope in a terminal diagnosis, building resilience, finding or losing one’s faith in a higher power, and much more! From its heartfelt personal accounts of how these strong individuals cope with cancer, to the thought-provoking search for meaning that underlies it all, this book is sure to run you through your complete gamut of emotions. If you seek a greater capacity for empathy or find relief in shared experiences, acceptance of altering realities and changed identities, then you can’t afford to miss this book.

This book is about the essence of the human experience at its limits. It is for Every Reader!

Why Your Knee Caves In: Our Fundamental Knowledge Is Wrong

Watch any sports game or step into any gym and you will see a knee-buckling in. This is surprising, as inward knee movement is seen as one of the holy grails of lower body physical therapy. In fact, it is directly connected to an Anterior Cruciate Ligament tear (ACL tear), the most extensively researched leg injury.

Medical practitioners refer to inward knee motion as knee valgus and hold the glutes accountable for not being able to keep the knee out. The link between valgus and weak glutes is not just a perception, it is an amendment. It is about as plain as the nose on your face, no questions asked.

And yet, it is entirely wrong…

This knee valgus bible gets rid of the fundamental misconceptions about knee valgus. Every physical therapist, physical therapy student, personal trainer, strength coach, fitness enthusiast or movement specialist should be familiar with the pioneering knowledge inside this book.

“Why Your Knee Caves In” will throw your entire understanding of inward knee movement upside down, in a highly digestible fashion with witty one-liners and fantastic visuals. Step by step, all the cards will be laid on the table and every detail will be meticulously explained.

A masterpiece for the ages. Free on Kindle.

Pitlochry and the Road to the Isles

Pitlochry and the Road to the Isles
A picturesque journey in the Highlands of Scotland from Ben Vrackie along the quiet shores of Loch Tummel and Loch Rannoch, the mountains of Schiehallion and Meall Garbh reflected in their still waters seems like an innocent meander through the peaceful scenes and wonders of nature.

But it was not always thus. Slaughter, bloodshed, Viking invasions, heartless evictions; the creachs of the Children of the Mist and the atrocities of the Wild Men of Rannoch tore this area apart as it struggled to survive the blood hounds of the chief of the Clan Campbell and the sword of Butcher Cumberland during the long, dark, Jacobite years.

But despite all that there was good. People who changed a way of life, an attitude to life, life itself – whether it was for the good or to the detriment. Retrospect reveals how dedication or passion can make a lasting legacy – can make history. $1.99 on Kindle.

The Julia Street Series

A segregated train ride from the Southside of Chicago to South Berkeley, California is only the beginning. Old-time trains and train travel are often romanticized, but Sara’s cross-country ride signals a life-changing ending and a much-needed new beginning. Before she boards a segregated train on the Southside of Chicago, Sara takes the reader on a series of goodbyes as she leaves behind treasured family, friends, and favorite places. With her children, all three under the age of four, Sara travels to join her husband, Ben, who is waiting in Berkeley, California. In the Julia Street Series, there are everyday triumphs, trials, and tribulations common to many in the all-Black working-class neighborhood where Sara and family settle. The reader will feel a strong sense of time and place while traveling through the decades as Sara and the country experience tragedy, loss, and unprecedented milestones.

Although the residents feel their neighborhood is exceptional, Julia Street is in every town.

Sara and Ben Jameson, with their three young children, brought to Berkeley their hopes and dreams for a much improved life in a city where they knew no one and had never been before. They hoped for a fresh start, a new beginning. What they hoped for and what they got were very different.

Most everything they thought they had left behind was waiting for them; separate but unequal schooling for the children, segregated housing, minimal employment opportunities. But despite these obstacles, they not only made it work, they thrived. Very quickly the Jameson family found their place in their all-Black, working-class neighborhood where they and their neighbors were not only homeowners but many owned the surrounding businesses. Their neighborhood was a fiefdom, and the adults were the beacons. And because of the adults’ sacrifices and their example, the neighborhood children went on to fulfill their wildest dreams.

The Julia Street Series lovingly spans 1943 to 2000. $0.99 each on Kindle.
