Why are some kids born with extraordinary abilities? Why are some people lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender? Why are some people deadly afraid of things for no apparent reason? Why are we instantly attracted to some people and not to others? J. R. Wexler creates an exciting tale of seven teenagers from all over the world that, despite their economic, religious, and cultural differences, come together during a lunar eclipse in 2017 and not only become best friends, but also discover a way to change the world and bring peace to all. The Book of 7 spans a full spectrum of religion, spirituality, personal growth, social change, relationships, and more, while unraveling questions of life and inspiring readers to make a change, both inside and out.

About the author

While attending his first year at USC, J. R. Wexler sought to improve the understanding and connectivity of teenagers, and interviewed hundreds in order to complete his first book, which was later turned into a television series. Years later, he continued his passion to unite people by creating innovative global solutions, including SmartGuy.com, one of the largest business networks in the world. Still uncomfortable with the darkness and violence of the present age, Wexler disappeared into the desert for 30 days and came back with this refreshing and adventuresome tale that answers many of lifes mysteries and is a road map to bring peace to the world.

Lama Surya Das
The beloved American Lama, a spiritual leader whose inimitable light and
lively universal teaching style has awakened the spirituality of thousands, now shares an enlightened approach to change and loss, dealing with difficult emotions such as fear, grief, and anger, and the role of crisis in uncovering our authentic selves.

For many people, recent years have been characterized by profound change, whether it relates to financial upheaval, political shifts, or even massive losses of life to disease and violence. Even on the personal level each person must confront the curves life throws his or her way. Buddhism has a great deal to say about change and impermanence and how to meaningfully deal with it. Change--whether on a large or small scale--provides our most important opportunity for learning about ourselves and the nature of reality. From this essential insight Lama Surya Das has crafted a fulfilling and important path to understanding and healing ourselves and finding peace.

Full of personal stories, anecdotes, practical exercises, guided meditations and reflections, and pithy original aphorisms, Letting Go of the Person You Used to Be addresses life's most universal difficulties in a way that is accessible to all. By using memorable concepts such as The Virtues of Adversity, The Pearl Principle ("No inner irritation, no pearl"), and Gaining through Loss, Surya reminds readers that hiding from change and loss is futile. Learning to consciously accept and embrace change leads to a better understanding of ourselves and our own innate divine light.
Jason R. Karp
Why are so many people drawn to running? Why is running the most common physical activity? What is it about running that empowers so many people? And how can runners harness that power to create a more meaningful life? The Inner Runner addresses these questions and a whole lot more. This book is not about how to get faster or run a marathon; rather, it explores how the simple act of putting one foot in front of the other helps you harness your creative powers. Learn about the psychological, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual benefits of running and introduce lifestyle changes based on the latest scientific research on running and its effects on hormones and the brain.

As a nationally recognized running and fitness coach with a PhD in Exercise Physiology, Jason Karp brings his expertise in science-based coaching to runners of all levels. He believes that running gives you a chance to discover, challenge, and bring out the best in yourself by impacting your creativity, focus, imagination, confidence, and health. Let The Inner Runner help you become not only a better runner, but a more creative, productive, and imaginative person.
