To Lose the Madness

Field Notes on Trauma, Loss and Radical Authenticity 

by L.M. Browning
Pre-order Now For April | An Offering from the Little Bound Books Essay Collection

“A laconic, beautiful, and deeply insightful account about coping with loss.” Kirkus Reviews

In this career-defining work, Browning explores the breaking point every mind has after finding her own limit during a gauntlet of traumatic events. Pulled out of this blast-crater moment in her life by a friend, she is brought away from the insanity and deep into the snowy Sangre de Cristo Mountains where, standing in front of a herd of wild buffalo, she comes face to face with the terms we all must come to surrounding the loss we face in this life. Offering no answers and seeking no pity, Browning lays herself bare in this radically authentic offering. She carries restricted subjects such as miscarriage, mental illness, and suicide out of the silence by offering her own private journey as an example of the power of transcendence.

The Comet’s Tail

A Memoir of No Memory 

by Amy Nawrocki
Pre-order Now For April | An Offering from the Little Bound Books Essay Collection

“A complex and compelling memoir.” –Kirkus Reviews

At age nineteen, Amy Nawrocki returned from her first year of college, scribbled a few notes in her journal, and took a terrifying summer trip. She remembers one night of disorientation, then nothing until Christmas, when awareness slowly restarts. The Comet’s Tail is the story of these missing months: the seizures and fever spikes, the deep nothing of coma, and the unexpected, dramatic recovery. Memory is recreated around EEG transcripts and doctors’ notes, family vigils and blurry Polaroids. From her unique perspective, Nawrocki investigates the connections between memory, trauma, and identity. She illuminates what it means to truly return to consciousness in this extraordinary memoir of illness, healing, and writing over the blank pages of our lives.

Naming the Unnameable

89 Wonderful and Useful Names for God…Including the Unnameable God

by Matthew Fox
Pre-order Now For October

What do we mean by “God” in today’s world?   Do we even need “God” anymore?

How many names for Divinity are there? Do the names for God change as we mature as individuals, evolve as a species, and face a critical “turning time” in human and planetary history?”

Too often, notions of God have been used as a means to control and to promote a narrow worldview.  In Naming the Unnameable, renowned theologian and author Matthew Fox ignites our imaginations by offering a colorful range of Divine Names gathered from scientists and poets and mystics past and present, inviting us to always begin where true spirituality begins: From experience.

Ultimately, no name for God suffices.   We are challenged to continue to probe the rich ecology of human spirituality to ask questions, embrace paradox, and listen silently to the deepest of life’s mysteries.

A Letter to My Daughters

Remembering the Lost Dimension & the Texture of Life

by Theodore Richards
Pre-order Now For October | An Offering from the Little Bound Books Essay Collection

“This is travel writing at its most luminous.”  —Mirabai Starr, author of Caravan of No Despair

Before you were born, I went on a journey that would take me around the world completely, a spherical, three-dimensional journey. A journey of dirt and blood. A journey of taste and bodily sensation. A journey of texture. I am writing you because I want you to live in this world, to feel it in its fullness, its depth. I want you to fall in love with the world, flawed and sorrowful as it is. Your lives and the world as a whole—these are indistinguishable to me—depend on this.

A Fistful of Stars

Communing with the Cosmos

by Gail Collins-Ranadive and Milt Hetrick
Pre-order Now For October | An Offering from the Little Bound Books Essay Collection

“Gail Collins-Ranadive draws attention to the wondrous fact that, in the words of Carl Sagan and Neil deGrasse Tyson, ‘We are star-stuff pondering the stars.’ In crazy and contracting times it’s more important than ever to recall the Big Picture and know that the Cosmos is our larger body. These essays are like a hand-drawn map home to our true Self.” –Rev. Michael Dowd, author of Thank God for Evolution

We are made up of star stuff! This elegant idea became tangibly real when the liberal clergy author was handed a cottonwood twig with a tiny star hiding inside.  Gathering up fists full of these star sticks, and in collaboration with her “rocket scientist” partner, she set out to reframe the human experience within its cosmic context. Here she shows how living in communion with the cosmos can affect the way we live in community, understand ourselves, and connect with the Source of all Becoming.  In the addendum, she invites readers to add to the evolving new cosmic narrative of living “from ashes to ashes, dust to dust, star stuff to star stuff.”
