  • Translated into English by Cary F. Baynes. The I Ching is a book of oracles containing the whole of human experience.  Used for divination, it is a method of exploring the unconscious; the symbolism of the hexagrams provide a guide toward the solution of problems and life situations or it can be read as a book of wisdom revealing the laws of life that can ensure a life of peace and harmony.
  • First published in 1967, this classic story of a young man's journey into the Pacific Northwest is as relevant today as ever. Here amid the grandeur of British Columbia stands the village of Kingcome, a place of salmon runs and ancient totems - a village so steeped in time that, according to Kwakiutl legend, it was founded by two brothers left on earth after the great flood. Yet in this Eden of such natural beauty and richness, the old culture under attack - slowly being replaced by a new culture of prefab houses and alcoholism. Into this world, where an entire generation of young people has become disenchanted and alienated from their heritage, comes Mark Brian, a young vicar sent to the small isolated parish by his church. This is his journey of discovery - a journey that will teach him about life, death, and the transforming power of love.
  • Instant Calm - the busy person's guide to finding peace and contentment in a restless world. These ingenious shortcuts to calm are written in entertaining, easy-to-follow language and are gleaned from sources as divergent as the wisdom of ancient civilizations and the discoveries of modern science. Wilson's solutions are based on meditation, acupressure, self-hypnosis, psychotherapy, aromatherapy, exercise, diet, and much more.
  • Have you killed any strangers lately? Try it - it can be fun! All you have to do is make a friend; because every time you make a friend you kill a stranger. Each person whose story is in this book has learnt this exciting, valuable lesson.  Many people, able-bodied and disabled, find it hard to make friends.  The book issues the challenge to the claim that normal (?) people are responsible for the non-acceptance of disabled folk in the full life of the community.  The disabled can equally be at fault. "It's a bit like the generation gap - both sides must be willing to walk some of the way across the bridge of communication." Here are REAL people willing to share their hidden scars and their joyous victories.
  • How would life be if everyone on the face of the planet started the day with a strong, positive thought? Although this little book of a year of daily thoughts is Christian - complete with Bible references - the thoughts can be adapted to any faith.
  • Sagar asks: How are we - as a species living what we think is a civilised life - to survive? How do we continue to live in an overcrowded world whose finite resources are being rapidly exhausted and  whose biological support systems are close to breakdown? There is a wide-spread and fast-growing belief that tinkering with economics and local conservation measures are not enough; that what is needed is a revolution in our consciousness regarding our place in the natural world and our responsibilities towards it. Science and religion are often referred to - but very rarely is there any mention of literature.  Sagar attempts to reassert the essential relationship between imagination,  nature and human survival. By close readings of major works by seventeen of the greatest writers (from Homer to Hughes) that literature has a central contribution to make in our efforts  to discover the laws of nature and human nature, and to live within them.
  • In 1967, this appeared in the London TYimes: "A witch of full powers is urgently needed to lift a 73 year-old curse..."  More than 170 people responded.  This book delves into events in a witches' coven, the phantasmagoria of witchcraft and the very early days.
  • An international survey of the strange and scary that covers: the Haitian legends of voodoo, zombies, sorcerers and the evil figure of  Papa Doc; what the rise of Hitler, the defeat of the Spanish Armada and the discovery of gold in Australia have in common; the Beast of  Gévaudan which terrorised a large area of France in the 1700s; the healing of astronaut John Glenn by Australian Aborigines; and some little-known events in the world of witchcraft, such as the Irish witch who, in the 14th century, poisoned her many husbands allegedly at the Devil's behest to the Tanzanian witchcraft trial of 1962. With beautiful colour photos and engravings, this is a real grab-bag of the weird, witchy and wonderful.
  • Edited by Wolfgang Weirauch. Verena has learned to see and speak to nature spirits. Tdhrough these interviews we hear from fire-spirits, water-spirits, a salt-spirit, a paper-spirit and many more, and who all give intriguing descriptions of their world perception. They also speak about their involvement with nature and their lack of contact with humans, the secrets of the cosmos, humankind's past and future, as well as their views on the environment, natural disasters, good and evil and love and redemption.
  • A simple yet profound process for turning problems into solutions, heartbreaks into breakthroughs and internal enemies into allies. Rather than seeing ourselves as needing to be fixed, Dr. Markova believes we can learn to relate to ourselves in a way that creates wholeness instead of fragmentation and true transformation rather than superficial change.
