On My Way to a Happy Life

On My Way to a Happy Life

Author: Deepak, M.D. Chopra Format: Hardback Release Date: 04/05/2021

What if you could teach your children seven keys that would help them to navigate through life with joy, compassion and happiness? On My Way to a Happy Life will help children to discover the seven 'keys' to living a happy and meaningful life. Examples of Deepak Chopra's 'keys' to a happy and meaningful life: * The Key to all Good Things - teaches children about giving and receiving, and explains that what they put out to the world is what they will get back. * The Key to Reaching Your Dreams - helps children realize how much power they have over their own lives and where this power comes from. Each of the seven sections of this book presents a key, as well as a beautifully illustrated example emphasizing how it works in the world. These keys, which have their origins in ancient Indian teachings, give children what Deepak believes are the most important traits they can possess: the ability to love and have compassion - and to spread that love and compassion to others.

Fragrance of Freedom

Fragrance of Freedom

Author: Heena Vasani Format: Hardback Release Date: 28/04/2021

She comes with one burning question in her heart. Are you ready to be true to yourself? Fragrance of Freedom celebrates Heena Vasani's remarkable East to West journey. It is the tender story of her determination to forgive, heal, overcome and transform the shadow and pain of a deep ancestral wound into compassionate teachings for conscious and modern parenting. This book touches on the Indian conditioning and belief systems Heena was born into, and highlights the lens through which she perceived the world - where traditional roles, family expectations and strict rules both governed and silenced her young life. Drawing on her personal experience of being a mother, Heena's unique style portrays her radiant teachings. With simple yet penetrating dialogue, she offers her readers a transparent enquiry into the true nature of motherhood and with gentleness, returns them to the essence of Life itself. Fragrance of Freedom is the result of an extraordinary inner journey and the transformation of personal suffering into the flowering of spiritual awareness. It is both a prayer and a mother's call to action on behalf of children everywhere.

Forgotten Civilization

Forgotten Civilization

Author: Robert M. Schoch, Catherine Ulissey Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 15/04/2021

A new expanded edition of the groundbreaking investigation into early high cultures and ancient solar outbursts * Updated throughout with recent developments and additional illustrations * Reveals how solar outbursts caused the end of the last ice age, unleashed catastrophe upon ancient advanced civilizations, and led to six millennia of a Solar-Induced Dark Age * Includes evidence from solar science, geology, oceanic circulation patterns, the Sphinx, the underground cities of Cappadocia, the Easter Island rongorongo glyphs, and the Goebekli Tepe complex in Turkey In this newly revised and expanded edition, updated throughout with recent developments, geologist Robert Schoch builds upon his revolutionary theory that the origins of the Sphinx date back much further than 2500 BCE and examines scientific evidence of the catastrophe that destroyed early high culture nearly 12,000 years ago. Combining evidence from multiple scientific disciplines, Schoch makes the case that the abrupt end of the last ice age, circa 9700 BCE, was due to an agitated Sun. Solar outbursts unleashed electrical/plasma discharges upon Earth, triggering dramatic climate change as well as increased earthquake and volcanic activity, fires, high radiation levels, and massive floods. Schoch explains how these events impacted the civilizations of the time, set humanity back thousands of years, and led to six millennia of a Solar-Induced Dark Age (SIDA). Applying the SIDA framework to ancient history, he explores how many megalithic monuments, petroglyphs, indigenous traditions, and legends fall logically into place, including the underground cities of Cappadocia, the Easter Island rongorongo glyphs, and the Goebekli Tepe complex in Turkey. He also reveals that our Sun is a much more unstable star than previously believed, suggesting that history could repeat itself with a solar outburst powerful enough to devastate modern society. Weaving together a new view of the origins and antiquity of civilization and the dynamics of the planet we live on, Schoch maintains we must heed the megalithic warning of the past and collectively prepare for future events.

Fit for Purpose

Fit for Purpose

Author: Richard Pile Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 15/04/2021

As a society we have never had so much advantage and yet been so disadvantaged by this very same society which we have built for ourselves, by ignoring our basic needs when it comes to sleep, nutrition, movement, relaxation, relationships and purpose in life. We face a rising tide of physical health problems, such as obesity and diabetes, and mental health issues such as loneliness and depression. Our medical model is a broken, disease-based one which is not fit to meet our needs, particularly when it comes to preventing health and wellbeing problems. Just as secular society is often guilty of dualism when it comes to wellbeing, focusing on the physical but ignoring the spiritual, the faith community may make the same mistake in reverse, focusing on the spiritual whilst ignoring the physical. We need to combine all these different aspects to enjoy true wellbeing and a satisfying life. The book explores what it means to be fit for purpose in life: physically, mentally and spiritually. It describes the problems we face, both individually and as communities, and succinctly summarizes the evidence for the key factors that determine our wellbeing. It lays down a challenge to avoid treating physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing as separate. Using knowledge and experience of the worlds of medicine, behavioral change and Christian faith, Dr. Pile presents real life case studies and provides practical recommendations for making changes whether for ourselves, our faith community or wider society.

The Green Fuse

The Green Fuse

Author: Hilary Miflin Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 28/03/2021

The Green Fuse is a tribute to plants, describing their powers and their connections to humanity, the earth and the cosmos. Left unconvinced of the enduring success of her cancer treatment by conventional medicine, the gift of a little book along with an opportunity of 'six months off to find her happiness' had unexpected consequences. While doing the 40-day herbal cancer cure the author experienced feelings of supreme wellbeing. She decided to investigate why this should be. The book outlines extensive research from many disciplines, both worldwide and across the ages. Hilary's findings chart the drastic loss of the use of plants in western medicine. This has been accompanied by the erosion of our deep-rooted harmony with the world-wide web of nature through the loss of valuable traditional knowledge. These have been replaced by our modern system of treating symptoms. Alongside her research she developed a beautiful garden to grow plants based on her findings and from these plants she created and marketed high quality products with exceptional healing properties. This is Hilary's story about seeking a felt understanding of the nature of human healing. It shows that regaining the connections we have lost can enhance our health in body and mind and enrich our creativity and spirituality. In the words of Dylan Thomas 'The force that through the green fuse drives the flower Drives my green age...'
