Engaging with the growing popular and academic interest in the "spiritual but not religious," Andrea R. Jain explores the connections between the practices of global spirituality and aspects of neoliberal capitalism in Peace Love Yoga. "Personal growth," "self-care," and "transformation" are all tropes in the narrative of the spiritual identity Jain is concerned with. This "spirituality" is usually depicted as firmly countercultural: the term "alternative" (alternative health, alternative medicine, alternative spiritualities) is omnipresent. To the contrary, Jain argues, spiritual commodities, entrepreneurs, and consumers are quite mainstream and sometimes even conservative and nationalistic. Ranging from the transnational to the economic to the activist, Jain refuses the single narrative focus of most works on the SBNR; human phenomena that can be analyzed through a single lens or narrative are few and far between, and existing research in this area too often yields a suspiciously tidy story. The heart of the book includes sophisticated analyses of: two politically divergent but equally entrepreneurial and global-capitalist yoga gurus; "athleisure apparel" corporations, such as lululemon, that successfully market consumer goods as a purchased commitment to social justice; and therapeutically-focused applications of spirituality that concentrate on healing the broken person rather than undermining the system that broke that person in the first place. Many spiritual commodities, corporations, and entrepreneurs, Jain suggests, do actually acknowledge the problems of neoliberal capitalism and in fact subvert them; but they subvert them through mere gestures. From provocative taglines printed across t-shirts or packaging to calls for "conscious capitalism," commodification serves as a strategy through which subversion itself is colonized.

As water resources diminish with increasing population and economic pressures as well as global climate change, this book addresses a subject of ever increasing local and global importance. In many areas water is not only a vital resource but is also endowed with an agency and power that connects people, spirit beings, place and space. The culmination of a decade of ethnographic research in Timor Leste, this book gives a critical account of the complex social and ecological specificities of a water-focused society in one of the world’s newest nations. Comparatively framed by international examples from Asia, South America and Africa that reveal the need to incorporate and foreground cultural diversity in water governance, it provides deep insight into the global challenge of combining customary and modern water governance regimes. In doing so it addresses a need for sustained critical ecological inquiry into the social issues of water governance. Focusing on the eastern region of Timor Leste, the book explores local uses, beliefs and rituals associated with water. It identifies the ritual ecological practices, contexts and scales through which the use, negotiation over and sharing of water occurs and its influence on the entire sociocultural system. Building on these findings, the book proposes effective conceptual and methodological tools for advancing community engagement and draws out lessons for more integrated and sustainable water governance approaches that can be applied elsewhere. This book will be of great interest to students and researchers in environmental studies, environmental policy and governance.

The Formula for the Illuminati's New World Order of 2012 The word "Awakening" also means "Enlightened" which refers to the Illuminati in Latin. It is the code name for a secret shadowy government through present day corporations that has been setup by the 1st Antichrist to control the world affairs. In order to achieve his goal he has to overthrow our capitalist government, and replace it with his secret agemda of a "Satanic New World Order" under Socialism. Why did Jesus have to step in to protect the Independent Candidate for United States House of Congress in 2006? An Awakening Spiritual Journey into Dirty Politic after Election 2008 will capture the Spiritual Holocaust that went beyond the moral fiber of one's imagination and comprehension of evil by the superhuman power of the 1st Biblical Antichrist. This nonfiction riveting book is an awakening of how our taxpaying dollars have been orchestrated by him on the Federal level of the American Government with its partners in crime, the Democratic Party, some Senatorial and Congressional Republicans and Independents secretly embedded in the Democratic Party, and the Liberal Media. Four main ingredients are fueling it: greed, corruption, revenge, and power, which spell the Illuminati! As my epic journey begins inside the spoon of dirty politics in January 2003, I will unknowingly walk directly inside the spiritual warfare of the principality of evil by the inner circle of the Illuminati. With the Living God standing by me, I have survived my journey. God wants the rest of the world to be prepared for what lies ahead. Evil and dirty politics can be defeated. That is why I have been chosen by God to expose my story to the world of what I personally witnessed.
