Download and read online Eyes of the Heart in PDF and EPUB In this first book to explore photography as a spiritual practice from a Christian perspective, Christine Valters Paintner builds on the process of contemplative creativity she introduced online at Abbey of the Arts and in her book The Artist’s Rule. She considers how a camera can help readers open “the eyes of the heart.” More than a book on photographic technique, Eyes of the Heart: Photography as a Christian Contemplative Practice is about cultivating photography as a spiritual practice. Adapting the monastic practice of lectio divina (sacred reading) into a form of visio divina (sacred seeing), spiritual director and Benedictine oblate Christine Valters Paintner invites readers to a new way of viewing the world—through the lens of a camera. Paintner guides readers through six themes connecting the medium of photography with the Christian spiritual life. Each theme provides a photographic journey in which the reader does not simply take images, but receives images and learns to see with “the eyes of the heart” (Eph 1:18). Photos by the author are included.

Download and read online Eye of the Heart in PDF and EPUB What is the role of feelings in the euthanasia debate? This is the central question in William F. Sullivan's unique philosophical and ethical exploration of the issue, Eye of the Heart. Employing the principles and techniques of the great Canadian theologian and thinker Bernard Lonergan, Sullivan offers a concrete examination of the role of feelings in grasping moral values and the key role that feelings play in ethical decision-making. The heart has its reasons, he argues convincingly, and it is a type of reason that bioethicists, philosophers, and legal scholars all need to know. Sullivan draws on his experiences as a practicing physician to analyse the distinguishing elements of human knowing, illustrating them through common examples of decision-making in health care. He highlights the occurrence of various types of insight, particularly 'deliberative insights' that occur in the process of making value judgments. These deliberative insights are affective, and through them, a person apprehends moral values. Eye of the Heart proposes that feelings are relevant to knowing moral values and orient us towards moral self-transcendence. The implications of this stance in ethics are drawn out for the euthanasia debate.
Download and read online David Carradine The Eye Of My Tornado in PDF and EPUB This Marina Anderson is not the same person as the erotic book genre author. This Marina Anderson is an established actress, journalist, publicist, jewelry designer and was wife and personal manager to David Carradine. This NEW EDITION contains added information, photographs and stories. David Carradine, The Eye Of My Tornado has been inducted into the Johnny Grant Hollywood Walk of Fame Library. “...it was one long rollercoaster thrill... Mr. Toad’s wild ride...intense passion and emotion. He was the eye of my tornado." "It became my mission to help empower others through our experiences and maybe others will see how they too can help themselves, confront their demons, issues, seek answers, recognize patterns, listen to their instincts, get clarity, closure and healing." Marina Anderson Marina's writing speaks to readers universally by focusing on their personal journey, revealing the truth about the couple, addresses conquering fear and overcoming obstacles, self discovery, recovery, re-inventing and rebuilding one’s self. It’s her survival of self in the marriage while desperately trying to save it. This is an equalized look at the man both critical and sympathetic. Anderson provides a mature, yet loving viewpoint, at their life together and what made them tick as individuals. There’s candor, humor, encompassing the yin-yang, humor, the delight, light and passion of their love and relationship. This personal account represents Anderson’s final therapy, her way to rid the demons that have haunted her, the struggle to regain her “self” back while trying to save her marriage. It’s her heart rendering, empowering struggle of overcoming obstacles to a healthier life and a complex story of two souls, two spirits intertwined. Two dynamic people merging into a karmic-destined, intense and turbulent love relationship. Each struggling with their own demons including sexual abuse and incest. A real-life version of a "fifty shades of gray," their life was replete with love, passion, erotic pleasure, bondage and sexual experimentation. The marriage was marred by a toxic secret (incest) that could not be ignored With the help of re-known celebrity Dr. Drew Pinsky (Celebrity Rehab, Sober House), issues are addressed with the interview occupying an entire chapter. Anderson was able to exorcise the demons that have haunted her for so long about their relationship and herself that almost destroyed her. Marina Anderson was just starting out taking acting lessons at Warner Bros., when she wandered one afternoon onto the candlelit set of a Shaolin temple and met, for the first time, the volatile, dark, and brilliant personality that was actor David Carradine, an international sensation as Kwai Chang Caine in the 1970s hit TV series "Kung Fu," cult hero in the film "Death Race 2000," portrayed Woody Guthrie in Hal Ashby’s "Bound for Glory" and Bill in Quentin Tarantino’s film "Kill Bill." Carradine received four Golden Globe nominations and was a talented songwriter and musician. Twenty years later, Marina and David became lovers. They were married on the Warner Bros. back lot and their six-year relationship was a whirl of auditions, star-studded parties, exotic locations, red carpets and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Marina, who was already an established actress, became Carradine’s personal manager and publicist and set about rehabilitating his career and reputation of being known for his heavy drinking. She introduced him to Quentin Tarantino, who cast David in the lead role of Bill in the popular film "Kill Bill," which vaulted Carradine back onto the Hollywood A-list. David Carradine died in a Bangkok hotel room, June 3, 2009, an apparent victim of autoerotic asphyxiation. Amid sensational media speculation, Marina refused to let David’s death remain stigmatized like it was and launched her own investigation into the death of her ex-husband. Suicide? Foul play? A sex act gone wrong? Was there a cover-up? Her conclusions are startling.
