New York Times best-selling author Caroline Myss draws from her years as a medical intuitive to show that healing is not only physical; it is also a mystical phenomenon that transcends reason. Inspired by ordinary people who overcame a wide array of physical and psychological ailments—from rheumatoid arthritis to cancer—Caroline dove into the works of the great mystics to gain a deeper understanding of healing’s spiritual underpinnings. Based on these studies, she demonstrates how conventional and holistic medicine often fall short in times of need. Both systems rely upon a logical approach to curing illness when there is nothing reasonable about the emotional, psychological, or spiritual influences behind any ailment. Integral to this mystical healing approach is the engagement of the soul, which we experience through exploring our seven shadow passions, building an empowered inner self around our seven inherent graces, and learning how to work with the mystical laws that govern it. This knowledge holds the key to understanding what it means to defy gravity and break through the boundaries of ordinary thought. You can heal any illness. You can channel grace. And you can learn to live fearlessly.

Author Ken Ibold has flown dozens of types of general aviation airplanes and has more than twenty-five years of experience in the field of general aviation.

Satan is a strategic foe. His darts and doubts are designed to undermine the power of truth. He knows the importance of destroying the integrity and well-being of spiritual leaders in order to decimate the church of Jesus Christ. Pastors and church leaders need to learn about how to prepare for and protect themselves so they can lead effectively and without "losing altitude". Defying Gravity makes leaders aware of the pitfalls of ministry and equips them with the tools to avoid these temptations and traps. This book is the fruit of Daniel Henderson's 25 years of pastoral ministry, mostly spent as the senior pastor of three churches. It also reflects his very active ministry in the past 11 years as a speaker in pastors' conferences and renewal events, which have given him many occasions for interaction with hurting pastors. From those lessons learned he instructs on the nine gauges on the leadership instrument panel that you need to monitor to keep soaring no matter what storms come your way. The nine gauges he refers to are applied truth, spiritual intimacy, personal integrity, Biblical identity, genuine accountability, eternal significance, healthy family life, indispensible pain, and a captivating call.
