How many hours did you meditate? the monk asks Gustav. ´´Five hours. I am finding meditation boring,´´ he confesses. ´´Accept, accept,´´ the monk tells him. I can´t believe he shared this with the teacher. It makes me smile. I appreciate his honesty. I am slightly jealous because I don´t think I would ever have the audacity to confess something like that. At the same time, I don´t find the mediation practice boring. In fact, I find it anything but boring. It is challenging to sit with myself. To deal with my own insecurities. To not think. To not dream. That is the greatest challenge of all. ´´How is your meditation?´´ the monk asks me. ´´It was difficult today. I found myself worrying about my family today at mediation,´´ I admit. ´´Do you know about the non-self?´´ he asks. Is that a trick question? I pause to think. He doesn´t wait for me to answer. ´´Non-self is about thinking and worrying about something or someone other than yourself. You have no control over others or what happens outside of yourself, so it is best if you do not focus on non-self.´´ He is so right. I can´t control anything outside of myself. Not others´ behaviors or feelings. All I have control over is myself. ´´Impermanence means things are always changing,´´ he continues. ´´We must accept it. We lose happiness when we worry about non-self, or dharma. Do you know Buddha?´´ he asks. I am confused by his question. Do I know Buddha? Not personally! I look at the many Buddha statues lined up next to him. ´´Dharma is something all humans have. Dharma is when we have goals or are thinking of the things we can not do. It makes us lose sight of the present moment. We lose happiness. Happiness is now,´´ he continues. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kathleen Holeman.

Twenty-five years ago HMS Terrapin was part of a crack hunter/killer group in the Battle of the Atlantic. Now she is working out her last commission in the Gulf of Thailand. To Lieutenant-Commander Standish, the frigate seems to mark the end of his hopes of a career in the navy. Then a new captain arrives, a man driven by an old-fashioned, almost obsessive patriotism. And under his stubborn leadership, Standish and the crew discover a long-forgotten unity of purpose. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Rintoul.

What is a man to do after the tragic ending of his loving marriage and a nasty divorce? How does he rediscover the essence that makes him a man after years of being forced to attend ballets, eat vegan food, and participate in intimacy seminars? There is only one way: drink, play, f@#k. In Drink, Play, F@#k, Bob Sullivan*, a jilted husband, sets off to explore the world, experience a meaningful connection with the divine, and rediscover his passion. His travels lead him from his home in New York City, on a drinking bender across Ireland, through the glitz and glamour that is Las Vegas, and to the hedonistic pleasure palaces of Thailand. After a lifetime of playing it safe, Mr. Sullivan finally follows his heart and lives out everyone´s deepest fantasies. For who among us hasn´t dreamed of standing stark naked, head upturned and mouth agape beneath a cascading torrent of Guinness Stout? What could be more exhilarating than losing every penny you have because Charlie Weiss went for a meaningless last second field goal? And what sensate creature could ever doubt that the greatest pleasure known to man can be found in a leaky bamboo shack filled with glassy-eyed, bruised Asian hookers? Bob Sullivan has a lot to teach us about life. Let´s just pray we have the wisdom to put aside our preconceptions and listen. Because what Bob Sullivan finds isn´t at all what he expected. Mr. Sullivan´s mythic journey is lovingly transcribed by Andrew Gottlieb.* Bob Sullivan is a pseudonym. Drink, Play, F@#k is a work of fiction and is in no way connected to any books currently on numerous best-seller lists. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dick Hill.

They are called kareshta, the silent ones. But the silent are waking. Kyra has lived her life in the shadow of a powerful Grigori brother. She´s ignored her own desires for the good of her family, but an unexpected request from Thailand sends her on a mission that could change her life and alter the fate of free Grigori all over the world. Sons of the Fallen hidden in the mountains of Thailand have adapted an ancient human magic for their own purposes. Will this practice bring peace or lead to even greater danger for the Irin race? A simple diplomatic mission sends Leo to Bangkok, but he didn´t expect to see a familiar face in surveillance photographs. He´s tried everything to drive Kyra from his mind, since he was convinced the gentle kareshta wanted to hide from the world. How did she turn up halfway across the globe, living with Grigori who may or may not be Irin allies? Leo has bided his time. He´s given Kyra her space. But this scribe is ready to hear a kareshta sing. Contains mature themes. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Aaron Shedlock.
