"God said, Look at Paige. She was born still, and look at how much purpose she had. There is purpose in stillness." Renee Greene's daughter Paige was stillborn at 32 weeks gestation-a tiny, silent life that nonetheless had great purpose. Finding redemption and new life even in the midst of death, Renee was transformed to see God working all around her. With Paige as an example of meaningful stillness, Renee learned to listen to God's leadings and restore broken relationships with God's help. Renee's story of birth and rebirth, death and dying to one's former self will help readers see God working in their own lives in a variety of ways. As he has from the days of the prophets, God speaks in the quiet of our hearts, in the works of godly friends, and in signs and wonders too easily missed in the busyness and noise of life. If we have faith to sit in the stillness, we will find God's desires for us revealed.

An examination of the mental and physical aspects of Chinese martial arts.
Based on the techniques and practices of various masters of Yiquan, this book focuses on the ability to defeat power and speed with the softness and stillness taught by this Chinese martial art. Yiquan, also known as I Ch'uan, is an ancient health and martial art system that has its roots in Buddhism and draws on Chinese meditative traditions. Central to Yiquan training methods is a practice of meditation that integrates mind and body to produce fajin, a powerful and potentially lethal force. Yiquan also relies on skills of awareness and stillness to counter and control this deadly force. This is volume two of the Warriors of Stillness trilogy.
Divided into four parts, this book describes the developmental stages of the internal martial artist. The first requirement lies in the constant cultivation and maintenance of proper posture and breathing habits, both in the stillness of sitting and standing and in the movement of the body. The next stage develops “jin,” or “fajin,” a unique power characteristic of internal martial arts that is examined through the fundamental, physiological, anatomical, and mechanical bases and parameters. Also important is the “yi,” which refers to the mental faculty tasked with controlling our movements and actions in the world, and “shen,” the peak or transcendent experience of awareness. This is the final volume of the Warriors of Stillness trilogy.

This book "Movement Of Stillness" reveals the New Mayan Calandar post 2012 as channeled by Jacqui Derbecker from Edgar Cayce. Cayce was a well-known mystic philosopher, seer, channelor, and author. He lived from 1877-1945. Jacqui felt honoured and priviledged to channel/streamline, through automatic writing, about 100 prophecies which are revealed in complete detail. By channeling Cayce she was able to clearly visualize the authentic and exciting New Mayan Calandar which she states, "it's not exactly what some perceive it to be" Jacqui explains, "there are only positive high vibrational messages represented by the Mayan's predictions and not ones of mass destruction" She advises that now is the time to make "living in Spirit" a reality as we move into a higher realm of truth and a natural original way of being. These prophecies are called the "All Truths" or "Crystal Messages of Truth" Each touch upon the daily living aspects of: career, relationships, financial, emotional, physical, mind, spirit and our sense of community. They speak directly to each and everyone of us regarding the releasing of old barriers and awakening to your authentic self. Thus creating a sense of stillness and peace.
