To our readers: The books we publish are our contribution to an emerging world based on cooperation rather than on competition, on affirmation of the human spirit rather than on self-doubt, and on the certainty that all humanity is connected. Our goal is to touch as many lives as possible with a message of hope for a better world. - Hal and Linda Kramer, PublishersFrom the Back Cover:
"Son-Rise: The Miracle Continues is the astonishing and poignant account of Raun Kaufman's development from a lifeless, noncommunicative child into an active, loving little boy.
Part One tells the story of Raun, who, when he was a year old, began to withdraw from human contact. Oblivious to his surroundings, Raun appeared deaf and blind, staring silently for hours and rocking endlessly. The diagnosis - autisman, irreversible condition. The experts offered no hope. As his parents, Barry and Samahria Kaufman, watched their son slip further into his impenetrable shell, they felt compelled to act on their own. Crossing a bridge into uncharted territory in what was to become the adventure of their lives, the Kaufmans worked intensively with their son for two and a half years, pioneering a therapy based on unconditional love and acceptance. By age four, Raun showed no traces of his former condition.
Part Two explores Raun's surprising development and accomplishments from age four. Part Three tells of five other ordinary families who, guided by the Kaufman's Son-Rise Program, reached their own unreachable children. Theses stories offer real hope and extraordinary testimony to the power of love and limitless possibilities.
Barry Neil Kaufman is the best-selling author of more than nine books, including Happiness is a Choice. He and his wife, Samahria, are the co-founders and directors of The Option Institute, an internationally recognized learning center.
