In SETTLED, physical therapist Chantal Donnelly searches for ways to help her patients and ends up delving into the fascinating science behind stress. She discovers it's not just a mental or emotional issue, but a physical one too.

Through personal anecdotes, case studies, research, and her professional expertise, Donnelly's innovative guidebook offers you quick and easy tools for finding calm.

Learn to communicate with your body so you can reap the positive benefits of stress while minimizing its negative effects.

Regain the sense of vitality, ease, and connection you are longing for.

Whether you're feeling overwhelmed, trying to improve your health and relationships, or wanting to relax enough to enjoy your successes, this book is for you.

Say goodbye to the stress rollercoaster and hello to a settled and balanced life.


Roger Parham-Brown presents The Song of Sylvia
“The Song of Sylvia by Roger Parham-Brown is a great achievement. The novel is about beauty, the search for identity and the integration of the self. Most profoundly, this novel is about what it means to be of mixed race in America. The novel is set against the vast tapestry of sea and sky that dominates the Los Angeles area. The Song of Sylvia is a courageous book, interlaced with love. In The Song of Sylvia, Roger Parham-Brown has created characters we will never forget. This is a beautiful uplifting book.”
— Kathleen Spivack


Marcia Arrieta presents Perimeter Homespun
Marcia Arrieta's perimeter homespun is part meditation, part equation. Both spare and delightfully baroque at the same time, the collection deftly explores the tensions between art and nature, the created world and the occurring one. Arrieta's poems cast a splendid web around the work created by other artists and writers, their translations of the known and unknown, spinning everything into an amazing pattern that both catches and reflects light.
—Kristy Bowen
