  • What does it mean to dream of tunnels, rainbows, alarm bells, ravens, swimming, embarrassment or death? This book is a code book for unlocking the secrets and meanings of your dreams. Dreams are a combination of your deep subconscious emotions and your everyday life events. They are usually symbolic of inner hopes and fears and can give insight into the past, future and even how to proceed in certain matters. This is a very comprehensive guide with an alphabetic index.

  • Have you ever suffered a loss - a relationship, a family member or friend, a job, a possession? If you are still attached to this past loss, it is holding up your life.  How about letting it go, in order to bring love, happiness and fulfilment into your life? To let go is one of the most valuable of healing principles because all problems involve some form of holding on or attachment. Psychologist and seminar leader Chuck Spezzano can lead the way through a step-by-step guide to letting go of these attachments and the beginning of healing. If you want to create change in your life and have a better future, then this is the book for you.
  • A discussion of the thought differences between the view stated in A Course in Miracles and biblical Christianity.
  • Traditions dating back as far back as human memory associate the market town of Glastonbury with the magical realm of King Arthur and Joseph of Arimathea, who is rumoured to have brought his young nephew Jesus and the Holy Grail to Glastonbury. The author brings together writings which reflect aspects of the Glastonbury legends, including excerpts from texts by Frederick Bligh Bond, William Blake, Dion Fortune, Katherine Maltwood and Ross Nichols, as well as stories and poems.
  • Dr. Dubos believes that if we continue to make choices for our future only in relation to negative issues such as pollution or overpopulation, our civilisation will become dreary and meaningless.  Instead, we could learn to cultivate the positive values that exist in Man's nature and in the external world. These positive values cannot be introduced from the outside.  All ancient civilisations have believed that every person or group of people,k every place or region is endowed with attributes and potentialities which confer a 'genius' or 'spirit' that give each its uniqueness. The 'god within' accounts for the unique creative expressions of every person, place and period. Human personalities, landscapes and civilisations are created through the interplay between man's nature and external nature. Modern science will not really be meaningful to the creative life of the individual until it learns to relate his innate genius to the spirit of the place in which he lives. First published in 1972, Dubos  foresaw the day we would have to live with the harmful by-products of technology and offered an optimistic philosophy which yet may rescue the world.
  • Sarah Ban Breathnach wanted to offer men the same reflective book that she offered women in Simple Abundance. Yet, she also knew that she needed a man to help her represent an authentic male experience, a book that mined beneath the "Men Are from Mars" stereotypes and "Iron John" expectations. So she joined forces with Michael Segell, former "Men's Mind" columnist for Esquire and author of Standup Guy. From there, the duo gathered these contemplative, humorous, and mature essays written by a diverse sampling of men, including a backwoods hermit, mystical rabbi and world renowned rock star. Segell writes the poignant introductions to the essays while Ban Breathnach inserts her personal responses at the end of particularly provocative essays. At times she sounds like an interloper in a "boy's only" tree fort club, her comments sounding out of place within these private moments of male bonding. Yet she forces readers, men and women alike, to acknowledge the feminine within the male experience, a goal that we tend to resist.
  •  It has been written, and should be read, as a travel book. But its journey is through the land of the spirit. Nicholas shows post-World War II Britain as a chaos of conflicting faiths. He describes the neglected streets of Canterbury; the crowds that throng around spirit-healers ; he examines the claims of the Christian Scientists and analyses the growing power of Rome. He travelled from the valleys of Wales, where faith is expressed in song to the remotest haunts of the Wee Frees (a small group of Scots Presbyterians who chose to remain outside the 1900 union of the Scottish United Kirk.) where worship is as stark and stern as the barren countryside.
  • Contains chapters on the Isle of Man, St. Patrick's Isle, Anglesey,  Caldy, Lundy, Iona, Arran, The Orkneys and the Isle of Wight  and many other British places regarded to be magically powerful.  Filled with colour and black and white photographs, pictures and woodcuts.
  • Best-selling novelist Anna Quindlen reflects on what it takes to live each day deeply; not to waste what we have within and around us but to 'get a life' and learn to love the journey, not the destination. Written with insight and understanding, she knows what it means to fully engage our days, not to take what we have for granted but to learn to take notice. "Look at the full moon hanging silver in a black sky on a cold night. And realise that life is glorious...' A pocket sized edition, illustrated with inspirational black and white photos.
  • A fascinating A - Z guide to the traditions of astrology including Western, Chinese and Native American systems.  Beautifully illustrated with easy-to-follow charts, this is an exploration of techniques to provide  valuable insight into your destiny, character and relationships as well as your personal connection with the earth, nature and the four seasons.
  • Here is the revolutionary idea of Positive Psychology - which focuses on  strengths rather than weaknesses and asserts that happiness is not the result of good genes or random luck. Happiness can be cultivated by identifying and using the strengths and traits the individual already has: including kindness, generosity, originality, humour and optimism. These signature strengths can not only develop a natural buffer against misfortune and the experience of negative emotions, but can move lives up to a new and more positive plane.

  • Unexpected, life changing insights from an in-depth study of the lives of the Bible's infamous ladies: Delilah, Jezebel, Rahab, Lot's wife and more.  All were inundated with temptations and the demands of everyday life - just like today.  So what can we learn from them? The author combines contemporary story-telling, a sense of humour, encouragement and a verse-by-verse study of their lives and meaningful life lessons. As Liz herself puts it: For ten years I studied bunches of Biblical role models and finally realised what we had in common: Zilch! Sarah was so faithful, Esther was so courageous, Mary was so innocent. I was so none-of-the-above. Then I happened on  Jezebel...I identified with her pushy personality...her need for control. I sympathised with her angry outbursts and I began to wonder...Could those Bad Girls from the past teach us how to be Good Girls in the present?
  • If you want to have a life rather than existence, then learn to be bold - learn how to give and receive praise.  Giving praise can change your life and the lives of those around you, but most of us have no idea how to give or receive it! Praise costs nothing, takes practically no time and is available to all. It would be considered a crime to allow someone to go six days without food, yet we let people go sixty days, sixty weeks, sixty years without praise or recognition. The power of praise will encourage you to embrace change, take risks, fail and try again, act on your dreams and believe in yourself.
  • Not the lead-up to 2012, but a look at what the world might be like in the years to come. Have other cultures shared this Doomsday prediction? Will the effects be immediate? Or will it be a longer process of spiritual growth?  Many aspects are examined: UFOs, crop circles, Government secrets and projects, Nostradamus, the Age of Aquarius the crystal skulls (yes, they do exist, they are not  exclusive to Indiana Jones), galactic synchronisation and much more. Black and white photographs.

  • From early youth, Sandra Gibson had been plagued by psychic experiences which intrigued and terrified her. At the age of 29 she was convinced she was either going mad or possessed by an evil spirit so she underwent hypnotherapy in a final attempt to save her sanity.  She learnt to accept the reality of the psychic experiences and channel those power for positive ends.  This is a journal of her experiences, drawn in part from recordings of the therapy sessions and trances.

  • Jung died in 1961 without ever having presented a systematic summary of his psychology. For the past 30-plus years, his ideas have been explored, explained and amplified by thousands of others with varying results. This book takes the reader to the source. It was designed for those seeking an understanding of relevant terms and concepts as they were used by Jung himself. There are choice extracts from his Collected Works but no reference to other writers. It is not a critique or a defence of Jung's though but a guide to its richness and an illustration of the broad scope and inter-relationship of his interests. Overall, the Lexicon contains a comprehensive overview of the basic principles of analytical psychology.
  • In 1935, a young mother wrote a letter to a magazine, asking for help.  At a time when a woman's place was in the home, she bravely admitted that she was lonely and frustrated.  The letter struck a chord with women country-wide and so a secret magazine was born: The Co-operative Correspondence Club, or CCC.  With amazing and stunning honesty, the members wrote about every aspect of their lives:  the pain and elation of childbirth, the challenges of marriage, broken hearts and faded dreams.  In a day and age without Internet chat room or forums, they connected, supported each other and experienced life time friendships. This is their story....and during the days of COVID, this may be the life preserver need, because the problems of home-making, raising children and making a happy family don't change.
  • The Celtic approach to mysticism is holistic, with little distinction made between the sacred and the secular, or between the physical world and the spiritual. The spiritual awareness grew from Celtic myths and legends: god-like warriors; druids who could walk between the worlds; and magical lands that lay on the boundaries of earthly kingdoms. Celtic mysticism is an approach to life and this book brings the Celtic world - its histories and stories - into a modern context. The important myths and the Celts' feeling for their world is explored and explained and there are exercises to increase your awareness of the power of nature and its holistic character as well as using meditation  and mind-journeying to meet Celtic archetypes.

Here is the how-to: how to change the way you think, setting goals, expanding your thinking and twelve principles to get you on the road to the life you deserve.
