Enochian-MagicEnochian Magic and the Higher Worlds: Beyond the Realm of the Angels, by John DeSalvo, Ph.D. (Destiny Books) — In this comprehensive introduction to Enochian magic and beyond, John DeSalvo explains how the magic system transmitted by the angels to John Dee and Edward Kelley in the 16th century has until now remained incomplete and thus not as powerful as the angels intended.

Drawing on his in-depth study of John Dee’s diaries, DeSalvo explains how Dee and Kelley were given the Enochian tables and calls but their communications with the angels were severed before they received the full practical instructions for Enochian magic. To this day, most magical groups improvise and make up rituals based on their own ideas and imagination–the magic they practice is not true angelic magic.

After many successful Enochian magic rituals and years of his own spiritual work, DeSalvo has discovered additional key pieces to the magical system of Dee and Kelley, a system now known as Power Magic. He provides step-by-step instructions for more complete and accurate Enochian magic rituals and reveals how the angelic realm is only the first and farthest away of the spiritual realms surrounding God. He explains how to penetrate this angelic realm with Power Magic to reach higher spiritual worlds and receive more powerful knowledge and energy. He shows that by connecting with the higher worlds beyond the angels, we can tap more fully in to the magical power of the Divine and begin restoring the planetary magic of our most ancient ancestors.

Spiritual-TelepathySpiritual Telepathy: Ancient Techniques to Access the Wisdom of Your Soul, by Colleen Mauro (Quest Books) — “The catastrophic problems we face today are speeding up the pace of evolution and calling forth the current expansion in human consciousness. With our world in crisis, our very survival depends on our ability to access higher sources of wisdom and guidance,” says author Colleen Mauro, former founder / chief editor of the magazine Intuition.

The aim of this book is to help people access higher sources of wisdom and guidance. Written in a personal, easy-to-read style, it provides both theory and ancient techniques from the Ageless Wisdom Tradition linking mind and soul.

Colleen covers a variety of spiritual traditions and also explains how the new science validates these ancient teachings. She shows that celebrated creative thinkers–those we call geniuses or visionaries–all have the ability to access the subtle world of the soul.

But, with inspiring stories of “ordinary people,” she also assures us that we can all gain access to the universal wellspring of creativity and inspiration.

Barbara Marx Hubbard, author of Conscious Evolution, notes, “This is a wonderful book, very important for us all now, as we recognize that we ourselves are receiving higher intelligence all the time. Tuning into it and sharing it with one another in a resonant field is one of the great practices now.”

Time's-Illusion-CoverTime’s Illusion: Miracles, Dreams & Finding My True Reality, by Carey Jones (Pauli Publishing House) — Known worldwide as a masterpiece of universal spirituality, A Course in Miracles helped author Carey Jones find his own internal teacher. “Time can release as well as imprison, depending on whose interpretation of it you use. Past, present and future are not continuous, unless you force continuity on them. You can perceive them as continuous and make them so for you. But do not be deceived, and then believe that this is how it is.”

Time is a paradox. It is experienced differently by each and every one of us. As a young man Jones sought an answer to the time paradox. That question eventually led him to A Course in Miracles. Explaining that time is an illusion of our making, leading to an understanding that my perceived reality cannot be what it seems, A Course in Miracles not only helps answer my initial question related to time, but also holds great practical benefits for living my life: benefits like leaving fear and worry, guilt and regret, and simply giving peace where there was anxiety and apprehension before.

Time’s Illusion is a personal journey of experience: a journey of changed thinking about the world around me and the greater reality we all share. In Time’s Illusion, author Carey Jones ponders the nature of time through the lens of personal experience and wisdom contained within A Course in Miracles. Fortunately for us, we are allowed to accompany him as he seeks a greater understanding of the nature of reality — and that experience is a blessing as we come to the shared insight that each of us has the power to choose whether we live within the constraints of time or outside of all that keeps us from experiencing who we truly are.

AboriginalAboriginal Secrets of Awakening, by Robbie Holz (Inner Traditions/Bear & Co.) — Sharing her journey from bedridden patient to inspired healer, Robbie Holz recounts her recovery from hepatitis C, fibromyalgia, and treatment-induced brain damage, as well as the blossoming of her own healing powers, through her work with her husband, the late healer Gary Holz, and her experiences with a remote tribe in the Outback of Australia.

Robbie describes many of the miraculous healings she witnessed while working with Gary in his Aboriginal-inspired healing practice. She details the powers that Gary developed after his transformative time being healed by Aborigines, including telepathy, seeing the inner workings of his patients’ bodies, and channeling the healing energy of the universe. She discloses how Gary accessed the Dreamtime, the energy field that is the source of reality, and reveals how her work with Gary led her to an invitation to participate in secret Aboriginal women’s ceremonies in the harsh Outback desert, where her own healing powers blossomed.

Through her story of healing and discovery, Robbie describes principles from the 60,000-year-old Aboriginal culture that can help create transformation in your life. She explains how she became aware of her team of spirit guides, who provide unwavering support and unconditional love through each of life’s struggles. She shares the tenderness of her husband’s final moments and how she worked past her grief to transform her relationship with him, enabling him to become an active, loving part of her spirit team and partner in her healing work.

conscious-evolutionConscious Evolution: Awakening the Power of our Social Potential (revised edition), by Barbara Marx Hubbard (New World Library) — A seminal work of visionary hope, updated for the 21st century, Conscious Evolution highlights the tremendous potential of newfound scientific knowledge, technological advances, and compassionate spirituality and illustrates the opportunities that each of us has to fully participate in this exciting stage of human history. As we do, we will bring forth all that is within us and not only save ourselves, but evolve our world.

In this era of government gridlock, economic and ecological devastation, and seemingly intractable global violence, our future is ever more ripe for — and in need of — fresh, creative reimagining. With her clear-eyed, inspiring, and sweeping vision of a possible global renaissance in the new millennium, Barbara Marx Hubbard shows us that our current crises are not the precursors of an apocalypse but the natural birth pains of an awakened, universal humanity. This is our finest hour.

“Conscious Evolution,” writes Hubbard, “offers processes that can bring humanity across the dangerous threshold of possible self-destruction to the point of the shift already under way — to help us realize that we have the capacity to survive and grow far beyond our current condition. This vision for a wholesome transition process is composed of initiatives that are already occurring but have not yet been connected, communicated and understood to be vital elements of a whole system transition.”

cosmic-cradleCosmic Cradle, Revised Edition: Spiritual Dimensions of Life before Birth (revised edition), by Elizabeth M. Carman and Neil J. Carman (North Atlantic Books) — Where was your soul before you were born? If your soul is immortal, did it have a “life” prior to birth? Did you choose your life and parents? Is reincarnation real? Elizabeth and Neil Carman, the authors of Cosmic Cradle, address these questions through interviews with adults and children who report pre-birth experiences (PBEs) not based on regression, hypnosis, or drugs. Instead, interviewees recall their pre-birth existence completely sober and awake.

In contrast to near-death experiences (NDEs), which have been well documented to show us what the soul experiences after death, PBEs throw light upon our lives before birth. People with NDEs sense that they “return home” when their spirits cross to the other side. What is the nature of this place we “return” to? PBEs suggest that we come from the same place we return to: we come from the Light and return to the Light. The same eternal “you” progresses through life before life, human life, and life after death.

This new edition of Cosmic Cradle explores your soul’s journey into your mother’s womb–where your soul comes from, the origin and purpose of your life, and the process by which you entered an earthly body. In pre-birth communications, parents meet a soul seeking to cross over from the heavenly realm to human birth. Persons with pre-birth memories recall existence in a luminous world before birth, in which they preview the upcoming life with a Divine Planner, and recall how they journeyed to their mothers’ wombs.

death-makes-lifeDeath Makes Life Possible: Revolutionary Insights on Living, Dying, and the Continuation of Consciousness, by Marilyn Schlitz, Ph.D. (Sounds True) — Our beliefs about what happens when we die define how we live today. And more and more of us are discovering a radical truth: when we release our fear of death, we open to an immensely richer life right here and now. But how do we incorporate this profound insight into our everyday lives? With Death Makes Life Possible, Dr. Marilyn Schlitz presents a wealth of teachings and practical guidance on how to turn this taboo topic into a source of peace, hope, connection, and compassion.

Featuring contributions by eminent scientists and scholars, spiritual leaders and devout skeptics, health practitioners, and people from all walks of life, this far-reaching work offers a companion to the award-winning documentary of the same name, revealing the myriad ways that we grow and change by expanding our perspectives on the ultimate mystery facing each one of us.

Join Dr. Schlitz to learn more about:

  • How facing the fear of death can motivate us to reprioritize our goals, expand self-worth, and help promote social harmony
  • Dreaming and the transformation of death-the fascinating connections and new perspectives we can gain by paying attention to the world of our dreams
  • Life, death, and the quantum soul-how post-materialist scientists are introducing new ways of understanding life as part of a nonlocal, interconnected universe that exists outside of linear space and time
  • Shifting our collective discourse from “one of fear to one of awe and wonder” in order to heal ourselves and the world we share

“Understanding our relationships with the seen and unseen realms of everyday existence offers us new possibilities for living a big, juicy life filled with humility, purpose, meaning, and hope,” explains Marilyn Schlitz. With Death Makes Life Possible, she offers a treasury of teachings with the power to transform every aspect of our lives.

Gift-of-ShamanismThe Gift of Shamanism: Visionary Power, Ayahuasca Dreams, and Journeys to Other Realms, by Itzhak Beery (Destiny Books) — Each and every one of us has shamanic powers. Glimpses of them can arise at any age in the form of intuitive dreams, déja vu, spontaneous visions, and out-of-body experiences. Most people dismiss these experiences. However, by embracing these gifts, we can unlock our shamanic potential to change ourselves and the world around us.

Revealing his transformation from skeptic to respected shamanic healer, Itzhak Beery explains how, after countless prescient dreams and visions throughout his life that he brushed off, a series of synchronistic events led to his first shamanism workshop with Michael Harner, renowned shamanism scholar and teacher. This, in turn, led to a trip to South America with John Perkins to work with indigenous shamanic healers.

Beery shares his experiences with ayahuasca rituals in the Amazon, messages from power animals and plant spirits, dreams that foretold future events, and holographic sightings of past lives and spiritual entities, both evil and benign. He details his shamanic way of “seeing” to diagnose spiritual, emotional, and physical ailments via candle readings and remote viewing. Explaining how we are always surrounded by spirits, he recounts helping people communicate with loved ones who have passed on and shares powerful stories of soul retrieval during shamanic journeys to other worlds.

Through his true stories of visions that manifested in reality, Beery reveals that we are all shamans. By igniting our natural intuition and developing trust for our inner powers, we can each connect to the oneness of nature where all knowledge is found.

inspirational-atheistThe Inspirational Atheist: Wise Words on the Wonder and Meaning of Life, by Buzzy Jackson (Plume) — Like all people, atheists contemplate issues of love, death, and morality, and in times of stress we long for solace and inspiration. A collection of uplifting quotations from some of mankind’s most important philosophers, scientists, writers, and even comedians, The Inspirational Atheist will be a treasured daily companion for the growing demographic of humanists who believe that life has meaning when we live it meaningfully, independent of the existence of a higher power.

With words from Carl Sagan, D. H. Lawrence, Julia Child, Douglas Adams, Charlotte Bronte, Bertrand Russell, Ralph Waldo Emerson, George Carlin, Joan Didion, Alfred Lord Tennyson, Thomas Jefferson and dozens of others on topics ranging from Love and Nature to Wisdom and Beauty, this book is a celebration of the sublime without the divine.

“Isn’t it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it, too?” wrote Douglas Adams.

Atheism is a rapidly growing movement: as of 2012, one-fifth of the American public claims no religious affiliation at all, but that doesn’t mean they don’t need a little inspiration now and then. More and more people are drawn to the secular worldview, because of the intellectual freedom and the moral responsibilities it demands: atheists strive to live ethically because it is the right thing to do. As Katharine Hepburn said, I believe there’s nothing we can know except that we should be kind to each other and do what we can for people.”

meQuilibriummeQuilibrium: 14 Days to Cooler, Calmer, and Happier, by Jan Bruce, Andrew Shatte, Adam Perlman (Harmony Books) — Life can be stressful. That’s certainly no secret. And it also isn’t news that chronic stress takes a toll on the quality of our lives, from our relationships to our jobs to our mental and physical health. Up until now, the prevailing wisdom has been that stress can be tamed with quick fixes — a pill, a massage or a vacation, But wellness experts Jan Bruce, Andrew Shatté, PhD., and Adam Perlman, MD, MPH, are turning that assumption on its head and offering two simple but radical truths:

  • You can’t annihilate stress. It’s an unavoidable part of life.
  • The enemy is not stress — It’s the stress effect and your response to it. The antidote to the stress effect and the key to becoming a master of your own life begins with becoming more resilient.

You can learn to manage it peacefully — and you don’t need to radically change your life to do so. The powerful author team who crafted this book has the research to prove it — with more than a half dozen studies to date showing the program’s efficacy. Marrying the whole-person, systemic approach of integrative medicine with the science of resilience and the tenets of positive psychology, the authors created a method that attacks stress on every level. This three-pronged approach gets at its roots, so stress can’t flourish, but you can. In just 14 days, the authors teach you a new way to respond and, in turn, a new way to live.

Mystical-backpackerThe Mystical Backpacker: How to Discover Your Destiny in the Modern World, by Hannah Papp (Beyond Words/Atria) — Part memoir, part guidebook, The Mystical Backpacker invites you to explore your inner terrain and learn how to create your own unique version of a modern day vision quest or walk-about.

Tired of living a life based on other’s expectations, Hannah Papp quit her job, bought a EuroRail ticket and a map, notified her landlady, and left town. Embarking on a journey across Europe with no plan and no direction, Hannah stumbled into becoming a modern-day Mystical Backpacker. Along the way her discoveries and the teachers she encountered allowed her to go on a deeper journey into the self and the spirit–revealing the real self she had long been missing.

The Mystical Backpacker shows you how to identify the signs along the road that will lead to teachers and experiences that will reorient your own life map. Ultimately, The Mystical Backpacker offers a solution, a way to break free and find your inner self’s rhythms and needs, fulfilling your true destiny. It’s time you hit the road and become a mystical backpacker.

Parenting-with-Presence-coverParenting with Presence: Practices for Raising Conscious, Confident, Caring Kids, by Susan Stiffelman, MFT (New World Library) — Our children can be our greatest teachers. Parenting expert Susan Stiffelman writes that the very behaviors that push our buttons — refusing to cooperate or ignoring our requests — can help us build awareness and shed old patterns, allowing us to raise our children with greater ease and enjoyment. Filled with practical advice, powerful exercises, and fascinating stories from her clinical work, Parenting with Presence teaches us how to become the parents we most want to be while raising confident, caring children.

In Parenting with Presence, marriage and family therapist Susan Stiffelman says that even though most parents subscribe to the notion that inner growth happens as a result of daily meditation, mindfulness retreats and/or inspiration from wise luminaries, it is actually their children who can be their greatest teachers.

“When it comes to parenting, it seems that although we may not have knowingly signed up for the ‘course’ our children offer, we nonetheless find ourselves forced to profoundly grow, and grow up,” writes Stiffelman. “In this respect, I believe our children can become our greatest teachers. While we may not deliberately choose to have a baby so that we can heal wounds from our childhood or become a better version of ourselves, in fact, those opportunities — and thousands more — are birthed right along with our children”

Rising-in-LoveRising in Love: My Wild and Crazy Ride to Here and Now, with Amma, the Hugging Saint, by Ram Das Batchelder (O-Books)Rising in Love tells the story of the author’s extraordinary spiritual awakening in America (which included meeting an angel), his discovery of Amma (the living Guru known in the West as “the Hugging Saint”), and the 27 amazing years he has spent in quest of Enlightenment as Amma’s devotee, most of that time in India. The book is a multi-faceted diamond. It is a suspenseful psychological thriller, a page-turner from the outset–yet there also much humor in the narrative, and at times reads like a comedic novel. From another angle, it is a story of profound healing from delusion, drug addiction and despair into a joyous and beautifully fulfilled life, and as such it is a ray of hope for all who suffer from addiction or mental illness of one kind or another.

“To declare Rising in Love to be an amazing compilation of light and love would be to minimize the empowerment one gains from Ram Das’ wisdom and spirituality,” writes Dr. Jim Young, author of Aware in a World Asleep. “No stone of personal distraction is lift unturned by the author’s deft writing and keen story-telling ability. His devotion of Amma is stunningly beautiful, as are the many descriptions of how deeply and profoundly this living saint reaches into his innate being, helping him to see how he (as well as we) sabotage our own spiritual journey.”

Secrets-of-the-UniverseThe Secrets of the Universe in 100 Symbols, by Sarah Bartlett (Fair Winds) — Explore The Secrets of the Universe in 100 Symbols with this beautifully illustrated compendium of 100 diverse arcane tools and writings said to hold the key to the mysteries of the universe. From the Aztec Calendar Stone and the Spear of Destiny to magic circles and Navaho sand paintings, each relic, symbol, and depiction is presented and analyzed in detail to reveal the beliefs and practices of past civilizations from all around the globe.

Philosophers, astrologers, prophets, poets, and artists from every age and culture have whispered secrets to pharaohs, statesmen, kings, and queens. In Renaissance Europe, two powerful women – Catherine of Medici and, later, Elizabeth I of England – patronized the most important magi of the time. John Dee’s obsidian mirror revealed the future of the nation to Elizabeth, while Nostradamus divulged spiritually inspired prophecies to Catherine at the Musée du Louvre in Paris.

Engaging and informative text brings to light the secrets and intrigues that surround each mysterious object and the obscure arts of the people who used them, and highlights how to decode their signs and symbols.

speaking-with-natureSpeaking with Nature: Awakening to the Deep Wisdom of the Earth, by Sandra Ingerman and Llyn Roberts (Bear & Co.) — Nature and the Earth are conscious. They speak to us through our dreams, intuition, and deep longings. By opening our minds, hearts, and senses we can consciously awaken to the magic of the wild, the rhythms of nature, and the profound feminine wisdom of the Earth. We can connect with nature spirits who have deep compassion and love for us, offering their guidance and support as we each make our journey through life.

Renowned shamanic teachers Sandra Ingerman and Llyn Roberts explain how anyone can access the spirit of nature whether through animals, plants, trees, or insects, or through other nature beings such as Mist or Sand. They share transformative wisdom teachings from their own conversations with nature spirits, such as Snowy Owl, Snake, Blackberry, Mushroom, and Glacial Silt, revealing powerful lessons about the feminine qualities of nature and about the reader’s role in the healing of the Earth. They provide a wealth of experiential practices that allow each of us to connect with the creative power of nature. Full of rich imagery, these approaches can be used in a backyard, in the wilderness, in a city park, or even purely through imagination, allowing anyone to communicate with and seek guidance from nature beings no matter where you live.

Communing and musing with nature, we learn how to speak to the spirit that lives in all things, bringing balance to us and the planet. By tapping into the feminine wisdom of the Earth, we evoke a deep sense of belonging with the natural world and cultivate our inner landscape, planting the seeds for harmony and a natural state of joy.

surrender-experimentThe Surrender Experiment: My Journey into Life’s Perfection, by Michael A. Singer (Harmony Books) — From the author of the New York Times #1 bestseller The Untethered Soul comes the astonishing true-life story about what happens when you just let go. A thriving spiritual community on over 600 acres of pristine forest and meadows in Florida, a cutting-edge software package that transformed the medical practice management industry, a billion-dollar public company whose achievements are archived in the Smithsonian Institution, a book that became a New York Times bestseller and an Oprah favorite, and a massive raid by the FBI that would lead to unfounded accusations by the U.S. government–how could all of this spring from a man who had decided to live alone in the middle of the woods, let go of himself, and embrace a life of solitude? But this man had made a radical decision–one that would unwittingly lead him to both the pinnacle of success and the brink of disaster.

Singer tells the extraordinary story of what happened when, after a deep spiritual awakening, he decided to let go of his personal preferences and simply let life call the shots. As he takes you on this great experiment and journey into life’s perfection, the events that transpire will both challenge your deepest assumptions about life and inspire you to look at your own life in a radically different way.

Dean Radin, author of The Conscious Universe, writes: “Only the rarest of books has the power to clearly explain the difference between a human being and a human doing, and why that distinction is so important. The Surrender Experiment is such a book. Inspiring, authentic, and intensely compelling.”

Transcendent-MindThe Transcendent Mind: The Missing Peace in Emotional Wellbeing, by Sunita Pattani (J Publishing Co. Ltd.) — Does contemporary psychotherapy really work in healing the various types of emotional damage that many experience throughout their lives? Or is it only putting a small bandage on a much bigger problem? Author Sunita Pattani writes in her new book, The Transcendent Mind, that without understanding the connection between mind, body and spirit, we can never be wholly healed. The integration of the spiritual with the science of traditional psychology can lead to a deeper and transcendent understanding of our existence and purpose, allowing us to live fuller and more meaningful lives.

In this book, Sunita Pattani proposes the concept of a Transcendent Mind and how it relates to emotional healing. In an age where depression, stress and anxiety have become such common terms, she asks that we deepen our approach and begin to question who we are at the very core.

Pattani discusses why exploring the link between science, spirituality and phenomena such near-death experiences, is essential to long-term emotional healing, and guides you through the key concepts that you need to apply in order to live more of a peaceful life.

TransfigurationThe Transfiguration of Our World, by Gordon Asher Davidson (Golden Firebird Press) — Why is our world in such upheaval today? What or who is causing it, and where are we headed? The Transfiguration of Our World (Expanded Edition) gives a comprehensive overview of the world situation, why we are having such problems, and the solutions now being put in place. According to author Gordon Asher Davidson, the world is being guided by an interdimensional Light Alliance working closely with many members of humanity to release the hold of darkness on our planet. In order to loosen the impasse currently gripping the world, it is essential for us to recognize and understand the purpose of higher beings and civilizations from beyond our planet. Their intention is to help us co-create a sustainable and spiritually fulfilling civilization based on love and aligned with a higher spiritual plan for human evolution.

The Transfiguration of Our World offers new insights into the history and current state of the ancient struggle between the forces of light and darkness on our planet; the cosmic decree following the events of 9/11, which brought about a galactic response that offset the power of the dark cabal; the inflowing powerful, new spiritual energies and resulting movements for planetary liberation; and a detailed outline of the unfolding plan now being implemented for regenerating our planetary life.
The plan for Earth’s evolution includes financial, political and media reforms, a more enlightened use of resources, the regeneration of the environment, and a renaissance of spiritual cooperation between humanity and the subtle spiritual worlds, including galactic civilizations.

Based on 20 years of deep meditation and contact with higher beings by the author, this book provides a corrective lens for humanity’s vision of the future. Some of the topics explored are:

  • The formation and cooperative work of the Galactic and Earth Light Alliances – How these alliances were formed, their relationship to Earth’s leadership and the plan for the transfiguration of Earth and humanity.
  • How the matrix of love is being activated – The awakening of humanity to the omnipresent, infinite matrix of love energy which transcends all dimensional limitations of time and space and creates an indissoluble bond between all worlds.
  • The struggle between the light and dark forces on Earth – How the spiritual Masters and higher beings have offset the influence of the dark forces over millennia.
  • The true significance of 9/11 – How this event totally transformed the rules of the game for humanity’s evolution and catalyzed a galactic response.
  • Detailed plans for the reorganizing of world systems – Transforming the structures of financial and political systems and reorganizing the use of resources.
  • What each of us can do – How to use your co-creative power, raise your energy frequency, and use meditation and other techniques to cooperate with the Light Alliance.

wild-womenWild Women, Wild Voices: Writing from Your Authentic Wildness, by Judy Reeves (New World Library) — In her years as a writing coach, Judy Reeves has found twin urges in women: they yearn to reclaim a true nature that resides below the surface of daily life and to give it voice. The longing to express this wild, authentic nature is what informs Reeves’s most popular workshop and now this workshop in a book. Here, you will explore the stages that make up your life, from wild child, daughter/sister/mother, and loves and lovers, to creative work, friendships, and how the wise woman encounters death. Both intuitive and practical, Wild Women, Wild Voices responds to women’s deep need for expression with specific and inspiring activities, exercises, and writing prompts. With true empathy, Reeves invites, instructs, and celebrates the authentic expression — even the howl — of the wild in every woman.

Wild Women, Wild Voices is constructed as a guide to help writers access memories and experiences, beliefs and imaginings, and write them from deep, authentic wildness. It is an invitation for women to write their own stories.

“In our Wild Women writing workshops,” Reeves writes, “this work was the territory where discoveries were made and memories resurrected and recounted in a new way. Writing explorations took participants deep into the vein of their own wisdom, where secret doors fell open and intuition connected seemingly disparate dots.”

wolf's-messageWolf’s Message, by Suzanne Giesemann (Waterside Productions) — “Wolf’s Message is a masterpiece of intrigue. If you have ever wanted to read a book that validates immortality and communication with loved ones who have passed on, then read this book. It is an authentic portal to the other side,” writes Caroline Myss, author of Anatomy of the Spirit.

When Mike and Beth Pasakarnis received the news that every parent dreads, their world seemed to crumble around them. Spiritual teacher and evidential medium Suzanne Giesemann knew exactly how they felt. Like Mike and Beth’s son, Wolf, her step-daughter Susan had been struck and killed by a bolt of lightning out of the blue. Until meeting Mike and Beth, Suzanne-a former “by-the-book” Navy commander-had cautiously refrained from using the word “proof” when speaking of the eternal existence of the soul. But no longer. The evidence Mike and Beth shared from their son provided all the proof she needed. Little did Mike, Beth, or Suzanne know that their lives would soon become even more entangled by unexpected visits from Wolf’s spirit. Had Wolf’s presence offered a one-time glimpse across the veil, they might still be pondering the significance of the mystifying clues he left behind. Instead, as Wolf repeatedly made his presence known, Suzanne was able to piece together Wolf’s puzzle and reveal a startling message that has profound spiritual implications for us all. Travel along on Suzanne’s incredible journey as she unravels the web of clues Wolf wove to ensure that his uplifting message of hope and joy is understood by all mankind.

“Part spiritual detective story, part definitive proof of after-death communications from a most extraordinary young man, Wolf’s Message is above all a must-read for those seeking a more balanced, heart-centered way of living,” writes Kenneth Ring, Ph.D., author of Lessons from the Light.

Dr. Barbara E. Fields, executive director of the Association for Global New Thought, writes, “Somehow, reading Wolf’s Message creates a field into which the reader is incorporated experientially. Reading, learning, and Being are rolled into a synergy that exemplifies the truths of nature and existence as they are revealed. Such authentic interactivity is rarely achieved in this context; a really good book is one in which the author draws the reader in by chronicling notions and events in such a way as to invite and affirm our ability to relate. A really great story dispenses with the dichotomy of author and reader altogether, and the precious anomaly of Wolf’s Message is that it behaves more like an Oracle than a Book.”

Yoga-for-LifeYoga for Life: A Journey to Inner Peace and Freedom, by Colleen Saidman Yee with Susan K. Reed (Atria Books) — From a rebellious young woman with a dangerous heroin habit to a globe-trotting fashion model to “First Lady of Yoga” (The New York Times), Colleen Saidman Yee tells the remarkable story of how she found herself through the healing power of yoga–and then inspired others to do the same.

I’ve learned how to extract the beauty of an ordinary day. I’ve learned that the best high exists in the joy–or the sadness–of the present moment. Yoga allows me to surf the ripples and sit with the mud, while catching glimpses of the clarity of my home at the bottom of the lake: my true self.

The very first time Saidman Yee took a yoga class, she left feeling inexplicably different–something inside had shifted. She felt alive — so alive that yoga became the center of her life, helping her come to terms with her insecurities and find her true identity and voice. From learning to cope with a frightening seizure disorder to navigating marriages and divorces to becoming a mother, finding the right life partner, and grieving a beloved parent, Saidman Yee has been through it all — and has found that yoga holds the answers to life’s greatest challenges.

Approachable, sympathetic, funny, and candid, Saidman Yee shares personal anecdotes along with her compassionate insights and practical instructions for applying yoga to everyday issues and anxieties. Specific yoga sequences accompany each chapter and address everything from hormonal mood swings to detoxing, depression, stress, and increased confidence and energy. Step-by-step instructions and photographs demonstrate her signature flow of poses so you can follow them effortlessly.

Yoga for Life offers techniques to bring awareness to every part of your physical and spiritual being, allowing you to feel truly alive and to embody the peace of the present moment.
