John LaRizzio Releases New Book Celebrating Nature’s Hold on Humanity

coverLaRizzio

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Silhouettes and Seasons: Essays and Images of a Personal Nature” by John LaRizzio

In a series of essays and black and white photographs in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing, a former corporate engineer shares his experience of soul searching in relation to the natural world.

Writing allows people to express themselves, sharing their innermost contemplations both mundane and extraordinary. In this new collection of essays and poems, author John LaRizzio shares the deep connection he feels to nature and his years of searching to uncover his inner self. He describes his work as the “unprompted prose of a plain man’s contemplation” and urges others to explore their own spiritual and philosophical tendencies.

In “Silhouettes and Seasons: Essays and Images of a Personal Nature,” chronological notations provide a context and authenticity to the thoughts and emotions expressed. His writing ranges from comparing a lonely commute home from work to the journey of life, to a poem lamenting the last eve of October or an essay about a search for his faithful (and necessary) eyeglasses. Despite their seeming disparity, LaRizzio stays true to his vision, offering what he calls “an open view of a seeker’s heart along the path toward authentic self-expression.”

Flowers show off their petals and trees line a lonely wooded path in the striking black and white photographs LaRizzio took that accompany the book, adding their own voices to his message of nature’s connection to inner selves. As he writes, his essays and poems “display the ruminations of a mind in soulful contemplation, complexities of thought that lead (him) to connect the world without to the one that dwells within.”

Author John LaRizzio spent 35 years in the corporate world before pursuing other things such as writing and nature photography. LaRizzio, a graduate of Penn State University, is a former project engineer, engineering manager and director of engineering for a major U.S. company. Although nature has had a large role in his life since childhood, once he read the works of Henry David Thoreau, LaRizzio’s view of life changed forever.

New Book Features Original Information on Gem Stones’ Spiritual Value; New Release by Wally and Jenny Richardson with Lenora Huett

coverRichardson

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Spiritual Value of Gem Stones” by Wally and Jenny Richardson with Lenora Huett.

Authors Wally and Jenny Richardson have revised and updated fascinating information about the spiritual value of a dazzling array of gemstones in this new release by Dog Ear Publishing. Using their spiritual channel, Lenora Huett, the Richardsons share their entirely unique findings with readers.   

Gem stones have long been held in high regard by humankind; since the earliest recorded period of human history, these stones have been used in a variety of ways, for purposes decorative as well as talismanic. Ancient books speak reverently of gem stones, but there is very little information about the actual value of the stones apart from their fiscal value. Authors Wally and Jenny Richardson have conducted extensive research, working in conjunction with their spiritual channel, Lenora Huett, and have collected this information for the edification of readers who are curious about the spiritual energies of these beautiful and helpful stones.

In addition to breaking down the spiritual attributes of precious and semi-precious gem stones, the authors explore the seven crystal systems, – systems that determine the aggregation of atoms that creates the shape and pattern of each gem stone. The book also contains chapters focusing on metals and ores as well as less significant stones, – stones that have less powerful energy patterns or that are not directly involved with humanity at present. It is the hope of the authors that this knowledge of the many different stones will help create “growth, understanding and eventual attunement” between people’s souls, they write. “Spiritual Value of Gem Stones” is a fascinating delve into the many helpful aspects of these ancient stones and the many ways in which humanity can derive deeper understand from them.

Author Wally Richardson, a retired pilot and businessman, has been a longtime student of metaphysical teachings; Jenny Richardson has thoroughly studied comparative religions and healing techniques through the vegetable kingdom and the powers of the mind. The authors teamed with Lenora Huett, a spiritual channel for the higher forces, an arduous process to which Lenora has devoted many years.

Learn How to Live Life to the Fullest with Tips from Jason Hughes in New Book

coverHughes

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Manstein: The Inner Genius Within Us All” by Jason Hughes.

An author who faced an incredible challenge of survival during his teen years urges people to explore their potential for inner genius in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

When fate intervened in his life, author Jason Hughes was forced to forge a new path. A horrific car crash killed his best friend and left Hughes battered in body but profoundly affected by a near-death experience filled with love. In this new book, he shares his belief that everyone possesses an “inner genius” that guides his life and expresses that genius, whether it is physical, mental or spiritual. Hughes calls that concept “Manstein,” in honor of scientific and mathematical genius Albert Einstein and his ability to express himself perfectly during his lifetime.

“Manstein: The Inner Genius Within Us All” aims to show readers how to achieve their own peace, happiness and productivity through developing their inner genius and recognizing their connection to the world and the love that abounds there. Hughes implores people to let go of the fears in their lives and trust in spiritual truth and love. He does not say the process will be easy; indeed, all living things experience ups and downs. Accessing inner genius through relationships, careers, family, hobbies, physical experiences, art or music allows people to shape their journey through life. Tools to realize Manstein include meditation, living according to spiritual law, choosing to be a light in the world, living in the moment, being grateful and – above all – recognizing spiritual love. As Hughes writes in the introduction, “We all have been divinely created to simply be extraordinary and to live a unique life of extraordinary purpose and success in our individual lives.”

Author Jason Hughes was a young rising tennis tournament star growing up in Old Saybrook, Conn., until a car accident at age 16 left him with a traumatic brain injury and killed his best friend. Hughes spent time in a coma and given only a 20 percent chance of survival. Three years of physical therapy helped heal his body, and his near-death experience changed his life. Hughes attended Tyler (Texas) Junior College to become certified by the U.S. Professional Tennis Association to teach tennis. He has a bachelor’s degree in communications from Northeastern University and a master’s degree in holistic counseling from Salve Regina University in Newport, R.I. He teaches at the Beverly Hills Tennis Center and is a holistic health life coach.

Amanullah Khan Takes Readers on Poetic Journey in New Book

coverKhan

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Sifting Shades” by Amanullah Khan.

A poet contemplates life’s wonders both complex and simple with a collection of poems in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

Explore the spectrum of life’s experiences through the eyes of a doctor and poet with this new volume of poetry that contains Sufi thought and contemporary verse, to Villanelle. Dr. Amanullah Khan offers profound insights to reveal life at its most elemental level, exploring the relationship between humanity and the environment, and showing nature in all its forms, from the emerging, delicate wings of a butterfly to the fate of a glacier.

In “Sifting Shades,” Khan writes of joy and sorrow, describing their convergence in metaphysical and spiritual terms. His poem “To the Critic” explores the act of writing poetry and his delight in doing so: “Let me chase infinity. Let the ideas soar. Let me have the ecstasy. Let my pen explore.” A bicycle left behind becomes a metaphor for the cycle of life in “Cycle.” As Khan writes, “Wheels frozen, tires deflated, worn in the dash to nowhere. Dents on the aging frame evidenced knocks of life, flakes of decay falling off from the languished metal.” The gently amusing entry “Longevity” ponders the irony of a bushel of plums, eaten gradually. “The last remaining was so wrinkled, what a change with time. Longevity is a cruel bargain. Plum is bartered for a prune.”

Dr. Amanullah Khan, an oncologist and hematologist practicing with Cancer Center Associates, belongs to numerous medical associations. He received his medical degree from King Edward Medical College and PhD from Baylor University, Texas. He has dedicated this book to his three daughters. He began learning English when he was 3, taught by his father. His mother sang Punjabi poetry to him when he was a small boy.
