With mindfulness meditation, we can learn to pay attention to our daily experience and become more contented and fulfilled by daily activities. Many of us find it difficult to simply appreciate the present moment. We either dwell on the past or worry about the future, moving mindlessly from one activity to the next. When we are not being mindful, we miss out on small moments that are often incredibly valuable - be it a beautiful park that we walk through on our journey to work, or the taste and texture of a delicious meal. In mindfulness meditation we pay attention to our ongoing experience whether it is pleasant - such as appreciating a beautiful sunny day; unpleasant - a disagreement with a loved one; or neutral - doing household chores. This 'Little Pocket Book' is the perfect introduction to mindfulness and is packed with easy-to-follow tips and suggestions that will allow you to incorporate simple mindful moments into your daily life.
You Be You is designed to empower you to seek more, be more and do more - from a place of self-love, first and foremost. Loving yourself is not selfish; it's necessary. In this book, transformation specialist Drew Canole shows that no matter where you've been or where you are right now, there are tools you can implement to live fully, healthily and happily. Drew himself has overcome insane obstacles - from a painful childhood spent in foster care, to being bullied, to an unhealthy relationship with food that resulted in gaining 40 pounds, to finally breaking through and harnessing his personal power to achieve incredible success! Drew will take you on a three-part journey to shift from your current perspective and limiting beliefs to a new, more enlightened mindset that includes surrender, trust, self-honesty, meditation, positive intention and kindness toward yourself and others. The result: a life aligned with true purpose, meaning and incredible amounts of awesomeness.

A special and deluxe illustrated hardcover edition of the inspirational, million-copy bestselling classic. The perfect gift for anyone journeying and questioning on the road of life. Few books can be described as universal. And yet, The Prophet, by Lebanese-American author Kahlil Gibran, can only be described as that. Originally published in 1923, The Prophet is considered Gibran's masterpiece and is one of the most beloved spiritual classics of all time. Further cementing its status as a worldwide classic is the fact that it has been translated into over 100 different languages, making it one of the most translated books in history. Drawn from Gibran's own experience as an immigrant, The Prophet transcends generations, languages, and borders. In this beautiful meditation on the meaning of life, Al Mustafa, the prophet, is about to board a ship back to his homeland after 12 years spent living in exile in the city of Orphalese. Before he departs, he is stopped by a group of followers who ask him to share his wisdom. In twenty-six poetic essays, Al Mustafa offers profound and timeless insights on various aspects of life and the myriad impulses of the human heart and mind. He offers lessons on love, marriage, children, pain, friendship, beauty, religion, joy, knowledge, reason and passion, time, good and evil, pleasure, and death. A timeless spiritual touchstone, this gorgeously illustrated gift edition is perfect for graduating students, or for anyone searching for solace, peace, hope, and purpose in today's world.
MINDFULNESS + TRUST + ENERGY + SERENITY + WISDOM It can all feel a bit too much. We find ourselves occupied, morning to night, with reacting, responding and coping with uncontrollable and often challenging circumstances. How can we rise above stress, anxiety and frustration? How do we perform a restart? Is it possible to radically transorm our daily life? How can we invite deeping meaning and freedom into our lives? For many, the gateway to the Buddhist teachings is Mindfulness. And Mindfulness is indeed one of the Five Powers that are regarded as the original teachings of the Buddha: 1. Trust 2. Energy 3. Mindfulness 4. Serenity 5. Wisdom What do the Five Powers feel like on our journey and how do they help us climb? Any transformation begins with Trust, a leap of faith, letting go of the sides and getting into the stream of life, no longer trying to control where it will take us but instead experiencing every moment. We need Energy to overcome resistance and keep going, to be energised instead of drained by life. And of course Mindfulness brings our awareness to where we are on the path, to notice life in its rich detail. Inner freedom expands, amplified by the expansive power of Calm. We focus on what is right in front of us, we listen intently, we are patient with life. And Wisdom provides our inner knowing, our compass. With stunning artwork throughout by the acclaimed artist Alessandro Sanna, The Five Powers is the perfect guide and inspiration for those seeking happiness, contentment, and love in daily life. Its teachings will help readers to dance with the unexpected, to embrace the everyday and climb the mountain.

'Make your own Bible. Select and collect all the words and sentences that in all your readings have been to you like the blast of a trumpet.' - Ralph Waldo Emerson Dr Bernie Siegel is the author of many books on the healing power of the body and the spirit, but this time he wants to encourage readers not only to learn from his life and advice, but to create their own manuals for living as well. With the quotes that have filled the pages of his journals and the lessons he has gleaned from them over the years, this book serves as inspiration for readers to assemble their own book of collected wisdom, and their own understanding of the answers to life's big questions. For as long as mankind has populated the earth, we have looked to nature, elders, philosophers and prophets for answers to questions about God, life and death, and why we are here. We piece together belief systems from the messages that resonate most deeply: scribbling down a Bible verse on a post-it on the fridge or an affirmation on the bathroom mirror each morning. Whether speaking with patients, reading the words of great thinkers or conversing with God, Dr Bernie Siegel has recorded the most meaningful quotes and lessons, and now he shares them with you.
