Wir sind Gedächtnis
Author: Martin Korte
Gedächtnis - der Stoff, aus dem unsere Persönlichkeit gemacht ist Genau 86 400 Sekunden hat ein Tag, und in jeder einzelnen verarbeiten wir Sinneswahrnehmungen, speichern neues Wissen, erinnern uns an Vergangenes, entwickeln viele kreative Ideen und planen unsere Zukunft. Dabei halten wir es für selbstverständlich, dass wir den Alltag meistern, ohne von der Informationsflut überwältigt zu werden. Dass uns dies gelingt, verdanken wir einer Meisterleistung der Natur: unserem Gedächtnis. Der Hirnforscher Martin Korte nimmt Sie mit auf eine Reise ins Epizentrum Ihres Ich-Bewusstseins. Er zeigt, wie vielfältig das Gedächtnis unser Denken und Handeln bestimmt – und wie wandelbar unsere Erinnerungen sind, die bei jedem Abrufen neu konstruiert werden. Er erläutert die unbewussten Seiten des Gedächtnisses, die etwa unsere Intuition und Routinehandlungen steuern, und erklärt, warum Schlaf und Vergessen so essentiell für unsere Gedächtnisprozesse sind. Kortes These ist: Erinnerungen sind nicht nur eine Anhäufung von Wissen und Einzelheiten unserer Autobiographie, sondern der Stoff, aus dem unsere Identität gemacht Anders gesagt: Wir Menschen sind unser Gedächtnis – und unser Gedächtnis sind wir.

The Motivation Manifesto
Author: Brendon Burchard
Publisher: Hay House, Inc
"The Motivation Manifesto is a poetic and powerful call to reclaim our lives and find our own personal freedom. It's a triumphant work that transcends the title, lifting the reader from mere motivation into a soaringly purposeful and meaningful life. I love this book." - Paulo Coelho The Motivation Manifesto is a pulsing, articulate, ferocious call to claim our personal power. World-renowned high performance trainer Brendon Burchard reveals that the main motive of humankind is the pursuit of greater Personal Freedom. We desire the grand liberties of choice-time freedom, emotional freedom, social freedom, financial freedom, spiritual freedom. Only two enemies stand in our way: an external enemy, defined as the social oppression of who we are by the mediocre masses, and an internal enemy, a sort of self-oppression caused by our own doubt and fear. The march to Personal Freedom, Burchard argues, can be won only by declaring our intent and independence, stepping into our personal power, and battling through self-doubt and the distractions of the day until full victory is won. Recalling the revolutionist voices of the past that chose freedom over tyranny, Burchard-at times poetic yet always fierce-motivates us to free ourselves from fear and take back our lives once and for all.

The Book of Secrets
Author: Deepak Chopra, M.D.
We all want to know how to find a soul mate, what career would be most fulfilling, how to live a life with meaning, and how to teach our children well. We are looking for a personal breakthrough, a turning point, a revelation that brings with it new meaning. The Book of Secrets--a crystalline distillation of insights and wisdom accumulated over the lifetime of one of the great spiritual thinkers of our time--provides an exquisite new tool for achieving just that. Every life is a book of secrets, ready to be opened. The secret of perfect love is found there, along with the secrets of healing, compassion, faith, and the most elusive one of all: who we really are. We are still mysteries to ourselves, despite the proximity of these answers, and what we most long to know remains lodged deep inside. Because answers to the questions at the center of life are counterintuitive, they are often hidden from view, sequestered from our everyday gaze. In his ongoing quest to elevate our experience, bestselling author Deepak Chopra has isolated fifteen secrets that drive the narrative of this inspiring book--and of our lives. From "The World Is in You" and "What You Seek, You Already Are" to "Evil Is Not Your Enemy" and "You Are Truly Free When You Are Not a Person," The Book of Secrets is rich with insights, a priceless treasure that can transport us beyond change to transformation, and from there to a sacred place where we can savor the nectar of enlightenment. "The Book of Secrets is the finest and most profound of Deepak Chopra’s books to date. Want the answers to the secrets of life? Let me recommend that you start right here." -- Ken Wilber, author of A Brief History of Everything From the Hardcover edition.
