You are already enlightened. You don’t need to get enlightened again or to make your enlightenment better. You just need to recognize who you already are.

by Dzogchen Rinpoche
Wisdom Publications, September 2025

Dzogchen is an ancient Tibetan tradition that is perfect for countering the stress of our modern lives. A simple and quick method, Dzogchen is practical and direct, and open to us all—you simply need to recognize the great potential that is naturally born within everyone.

In his highly anticipated first book, the Seventh Dzogchen Rinpoche, Jigme Losel Wangpo, shows us how our everyday lives can be turned into spiritual practice—not only to ease our stress, but to allow the true nature of our minds to reveal itself, right now, on the spot. The Dzogchen view is the highest view, the view from the top of the mountain. We need to build a platform that will hold the view, and Dzogchen Rinpoche provides the meditations and advice for living that will help you do just that. In turn, you’ll find true peace in a mind at rest.

His Eminence the Seventh Dzogchen Rinpoche, Jigme Losel Wangpo, is the holder of the Dzogchen lineage. He was born in Sikkim in 1964 into the Lakar Tsang family, a noble family whose connection to the Dzogchen tradition and the great masters of Tibet dates back over many centuries. His Eminence’s father was the late Tsewang Paljor, whose family lineage is of terton descent traced back to Dudul Nuden Dorje. Tsewang Paljor was greatly respected and renowned as the private secretary to the second Jamyang Khyentse of Dzongsar, Dorje Chang, Chökyi Lodrö. His Eminence’s mother is Pema Tsering Wangmo of the Lakar Tsang family, known as great patrons of Dharma in the Kham region of eastern Tibet.

Around the time of Dzogchen Rinpoche’s birth, both parents had many auspicious dreams. There were also many auspicious signs to indicate the incarnation of a great master. Even before his official recognition, many respected lamas came to visit this incredible young boy. His Holiness the Fourth Dodrupchen Rinpoche, Thupten Trinley Palzang, recognized Rinpoche as the Dzogchen lineage holder in a clear pure-light vision at the time of his conception and later performed his enthronement ceremony in Sikkim’s Royal Palace in Gangtok on the eighth of October, 1972.

Rinpoche began his spiritual training at the Nyingma Institute, where he received private teachings from Dodrupchen Rinpoche and Khenpo Rahor Thupten. At the age of twelve, Dzogchen Rinpoche was invited to study at the Buddhist School of Dialectics in Dharamsala by His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, who personally supervised his education. Rinpoche was also instructed by many other great lamas in ritual practice and academic study. Other senior masters trained Dzogchen Rinpoche in ritual and grammar. Rinpoche also simultaneously undertook Gelug philosophical. Later on, he received Dzogchen lineage transmission, including the teachings of Longchenpa, from Khenchen Pema Tsewang.

Historically, the Dzogchen Rinpoches have a close connection with the Medicine Buddha, and he is known to have transformed the health of many people. The Seventh Dzogchen Rinpoche’s work also has charitable dimensions. Recognized by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan Government in Exile for his outstanding commitment to the welfare of the Tibetan community, Rinpoche has transformed the Dhondenling Tibetan settlement through two decades of community development.

by Joanne Cacciatore
Wisdom Publications, April 2024

From the bestselling author of Bearing the Unbearable and Grieving Is Loving, here are 52 writing prompts for exploring grief and journaling about those whom we’ve lost. Writing about those we’ve lost can be part of a contemplative practice, alone or with therapists, family, friends, or with a grief support group.

Dr. Joanne Cacciatore has a fourfold relationship with bereavement. She is herself a bereaved mother: her newborn daughter died on July 27, 1994, and that single tragic moment catapulted her unwillingly onto the reluctant path of traumatic grief. For more than two decades, she’s devoted herself to direct practice with grief, helping traumatically bereaved people on six continents. She’s also been researching and writing about grief for more than a decade in her role as associate professor at Arizona State University and director of the Graduate Certificate in Trauma and Bereavement program there. And, in addition, she’s the founder of an international nongovernmental organization, the MISS Foundation, dedicated to providing multiple forms of support to families experiencing the death of a child at any age and from any cause, and since 1996 has directed the foundation’s family services and clinical education programs.

Cacciatore is an ordained Zen priest, affiliated with Zen Garland and its child bereavement center outside of New York City. She is an acclaimed public speaker and provides expert consulting and witness services in the area of traumatic loss. Her research has been published in peer-reviewed journals such as The Lancet, Social Work and Healthcare, and Death Studies, among others. She received her PhD from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and her master’s and bachelor’s degrees in psychology from Arizona State University. Her work has been featured in major media sources such as People and Newsweek magazines, the New York Times, the Boston Globe, CNN, National Public Radio, and the Los Angeles Times. She has been the recipient of many regional and national awards for her empathic work and service to people suffering traumatic grief. She travels quite often but spends most of her time in Sedona, Arizona, with her family and three rescue dogs.

TIME ANXIETY de Chris Guillebeau

From the bestselling author of several books including The $100 Startup, an exploration of the psychic damage caused by always feeling behind, second-guessing choices about how we spend our time and struggling to fully relax.

by Chris Guillebeau
Crown Currency, September 2025

This is a book for those who feel like there’s never enough time for the things that matter, who fear they’re too late for something important in their life, and who sense there’s something they should be doing right now—but aren’t sure what it is. This experience is called time anxiety. It affects some of us more than others, and it’s different from diagnosed conditions such as ADHD and autism. Productivity hacks and “time management” strategies tend to mask the problem, ultimately doing more harm than good. This is because of a simple truth: time is limited, but desire is limitless. Facing this truth is the first step to making peace with our inability to do everything.

In TIME ANXIETY, Guillebeau will guide readers towards eliminating unnecessary obligations and establishing a fundamentally different relationship with the clock.

Chris Guillebeau is also the author of Wall Street Journal bestsellers The Happiness of Pursuit and Born for This. Over the course of a lifetime of self-employment and side hustling, he visited every country in the world (193 in total) before his 35th birthday.
