MODERN BUDDHIST HEALING
A Spiritual Strategy for Transforming Pain Dis-Ease and Death
Charles Atkins

Healing is part of every major spiritual tradition and no tradition has carried healing to greater heights than Buddhism. Regardless of your religious or spiritual path this book will shed light on the role of meditation imagery and prayer in the healing process. In today's increasingly technological world we need this wisdom more than ever. - Larry Dossey M.D. author of Healing Words In 1987 Charles Atkins was struck with Hodgkin's disease and underwent the ravages of chemotherapy. Throughout his illness he used his Buddhist training and the power of the mantra nam-myoho-renge-kyo to carry him through the cancer treatments and allay his fears of death and doubts for recovery. During his stays in the hospital he took every possible opportunity to comfort other cancer patients. His survival inspired him to share the healing techniques he has learned with others. In this book Atkins introduces us to the Buddhist master Nichiren (1222-1281) and the healing teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha as laid out in the Lotus Sutra. Nam-myoho-renge-kyo is an old mantra that has accumulated a great deal of power from centuries of countless individuals focusing their highest intents while chanting it. He explains how nam-myoho-renge-kyo can be used to undo karma that has damaged our health. Methods for chanting while visualizing abound in this book. His example along with that of many others struggling with diseases as diverse as fibromyalgia diabetic ulcers high blood pressure and mental illness provides a beacon of hope for those facing illness. Atkins's book shows that with hope faith and prayer nothing is impossible.

MODERN WOMAN IN SEARCH OF SOUL £15.99
MODERN WOMAN IN SEARCH OF SOUL
A Jungian Guide to the Visible and Invisible Worlds
June Singer

A woman's search for soul is quite different from a man's search. Woman's search for her own authenticity is grounded in the archetypal feminine wisdom figure. This book deals with the true-life experiences of women confronting the rapidly changing issues of our time: scientific psychological and spiritual. In the author's wide-angle view the universes within us and without are different orders of a single reality. June Singer a Jungian psychoanalyst weaves a unified picture of human experience out of Jungian psychology the Gnostic Gospels and theories of chaos suggested by quantum physics. She uses her own psychological and spiritual journeys and those of two patients to illustrate development in the invisible world of our minds and hearts observing parallels to Gnostic belief passed on through tradition and described in documents found in Egypt in 1945. She sees a confirming development in modern science where in what she calls a paradigm shift uncertainty principles have come to prevail over Newtonian determinism. At ease discussing the work of Stephen Hawking James Gleik and others Singer maintains her focus on the individual's efforts to discover the invisible world and to traverse the boundaries between the known and the unknown and between the unknown and the unknowable.

Aldous Huxley's Classic Writings on Psychedelics and the Visionary Experience
Huxley/Horowitz

In May 1953 Aldous Huxley took four-tenths of a gramme of mescaline. The mystical and transcendent experience that followed set him off on an exploration that was to produce a revolutionary body of work about the inner reaches of the human mind. Huxley was decades ahead of his time in his anticipation of the dangers modern culture was creating through explosive population increase headlong technological advance and militant nationalism. He saw psychedelics as the greatest means at our disposal to 'remind adults that the real is very different from the misshapen universe they have created for themselves by means of their culture-conditioned prejudices'. MOKSHA is a collection of the prophetic and visionary writings of Aldous Huxley. It includes selections from his acclaimed novels BRAVE NEW WORLD and ISLAND both of which envision societies centred around the use of psychedelics as stabilising forces as well as pieces from THE DOORS OF PERCEPTION and HEAVEN AND HELL his famous works on consciousness expansion.

MOLECULAR CONSCIOUSNESS
Why the Universe Is Aware of Our Presence
Françoise Tibika

· Explains how your state of mind is profoundly related to the flow
of chemical information during the interactions of your molecules
· Reveals how each atom of the universe is intrinsically linked with
all other atoms through their memories and the information they
carry
· Explores the concrete manifestations of this “molecular
consciousness,” such as intuition and the appearance of life on
earth

The molecules of living organisms are in constant communication, storing and transmitting information both at the intracellular level as well as across vast distances. The mystery of how this communication occurs—whether through molecular structure, chemical reactions, entangled states or some other method—has baffled biologists, chemists and quantum physicists for more than a century.
Revealing the intimate connections between mind and matter, Françoise Tibika explains that conscious communication exists all the way down to the very molecules of which we—and the universe—are made. Using the fundamental laws of thermodynamics to support her argument—especially the first law: “energy is neither created nor destroyed”—as well as modern scientific research in quantum physics and molecular biology, Tibika explores how each imperishable atom of the universe is intrinsically linked with all other atoms through their memories and the information they carry. She shows not only how each atom of your being is part of the greater whole of the universe, but, also, how your thoughts, feelings and state of mind are profoundly related to the activity of each of your molecules.


Just as we are undergoing constant transformation by the molecules surrounding us, our own molecules are continuously transforming the network of which we are a part.

Exploring the concrete manifestations of this molecular consciousness, such as intuition, Tibika reveals how, through effecting conscious change at the molecular level, our actions have far-reaching significance in a universe that is not blind to our presence.

The Art of the Quiet Mind
Kundtz, J David

Take five or ten. Take the moments in between tasks in a busy day, at the end of the day, as evening falls. Do nothing, but do it with purpose and meaning. Do nothing to become fully awake and remember who you are. Allow the important things in life to come back into focus.
Moments In Between is a book of meditations, reflections, and wise guidance that reminds us that the "spaces in between" the big events of our lives aren't meant to be forgotten, or worse, fill us with anxiety.

MOMMY DOESN'T DRINK HERE ANYMORE £12.99
MOMMY DOESN'T DRINK HERE ANYMORE
Getting Through the First Year of Sobriety
Rachael Brownell

"Mommy Doesn't Drink Here Anymore is an excellent read. I was absolutely entranced by Brownell's journey, her wit, her honesty, her special connection to Ted (her recovery soul mate), and the many women who helped her stay sober. And I was so relieved that she got the message. Her story touched me deeply, not just because I am a woman in recovery, but because a story of hope resonates. This book deserves a wide audience." -Karen Casey, Ph.D. author of Each Day a New Beginning and Change Your Mind and Your Life Will Follow

"...The real story is the subtitle of the book, "Getting Through The First Year of Sobriety". Kids or no kids, you will relate to this. We all have had to get through the first year, or maybe you are trying to get through the first year (maybe for the first time maybe for the umpteenth time)...You don't need someone to tell you the story because I think Mommy Doesn't Drink Here Anymore is a book you will want for yourself. Buy it, read it, and when you are through, pass it on. If you don’t like sharing your books (I don't) tell your friends about it and then pass on the strength and hope I am sure you will have received from Rachel's message." -Kathy L., BellaOnline's 12 Step Recovery Editor

"Brownell has an easy, readable style and a simple message. There is no glowing happy ending, just the reality that life must be faced one day at a time. This work will appeal to readers who like memoirs about ordinary people overcoming difficult life problems; individuals who find 12-step and recovery literature helpful will also be interested in this personal journey." -Library Journal, Crystal Renfro
Part recovery, part self-help, and all real, raw stories of waking up for the sake of your self and your children, Mommy Doesn't Drink Here Anymore follows one mother's journey from cocktail mama to sober mama. The loving mother of twins and a newborn, Brownell used alcohol to maintain a sense of her adult self and be more than "just mommy." It didn't take long before her drinking spiraled out of control, consuming her life and marriage, and she realized that she needed serious help.

Both heart-wrenching and inspiring, this is Brownell’s true-life story, from the first thirty days to the year mark. Mommy Doesn't Drink Here Anymore is not a book that preaches or simply takes the reader through the Twelve Steps. It provides hope and motivation to get into a program and balance your life as a mother and a recovering alcoholic.

MONA LISA'S MOUSTACHE HB
Making Sense of a Dissolving World
Settegast, Mary

In the eighty years since Marcel Duchamp drew a moustache on a copy of the Mona Lisa, the dissolving of cultural forms has intensified to the point that there is no longer an absolute, a "proper" form, anywhere. This generalized breakdown is evident in social and moral codes, in gender distinctions and personal relationships, in politics and economics, in literature, music, dance, painting, and architecture, in our concepts of reality itself.

Is there any sense to be made of this seeming chaos? And if so, can any single theory adequately account for all aspects of the phenomenon? Physicists and mathematicians have informed us that reality is irreducibly complex and plural, unable to be exhausted by any one system of description. Following their lead, Mary Settegast has explored several different ways of looking at the reality of dissolving forms, seeing it as the result of global consumer capitalism; environmental deterioration; the end of a cycle of time; the beginning of a new cycle; a shift in the evolution of human consciousness; and finally, seeing the dissolution of form as a cause for celebration.

Each of these six perspectives is theoretically "correct" in its ability to explain the breakdown, and each can be supported by the work of twentieth-century artists. Readers are asked to forego the impulse to choose which view they believe to be true and encouraged instead to practice the simultaneous holding of multiple perspectives: "Like the Cubist painters of the early twentieth century, who were among the first to recognize the error in a single point of view, we will be trying in these pages to portray our subject from all sides in hopes of capturing it whole."

MOONDANCE TO ETERNITY
A Doctors Journey into the Hearts and Souls of Children Facing Death
John Monaco

It has been my experience at the very moment of death - when all present have resigned themselves to the inevitable - there is an other worldly peace that becomes palpable in the room something approaching the miraculous. It is precisely that moment that I want to write about. What gives this enriching book a heartfelt tone is Monaco's first hand experience with children who faced this moment at an age when they were too young to comprehend or cope with the reality of death. MOONDANCE TO ETERNITY is not just about children though or dealing with death. What happened in the process of putting these experiences together is that the children had become the teachers. They were the ones who launched Monaco's own journey in to a deeper understanding of the mystery of life. Death eternity and even more importantly the importance of love as the source of joy in this lifetime.

MOTHER AND CHILD
Visions of Parenting from Indigenous Cultures
Jan Reynolds

Award-winning journalist and photographer Jan Reynolds presents visions of parenting from indigenous cultures and looks at how these methods can be adapted by parents in contemporary cultures. Mothers shape the world in which we live through the love and guidance they give their children. Award-winning journalist and photographer Jan Reynolds explored the mother/child relationship through seven stages of life - marriage pregnancy birth infancy toddling independence and adolescence - while living with women in the Himalayas the Sahara the Aboriginal Outback the Amazon territory above the Arctic Circle and Mongolia. Reynolds was struck by the special relationship between these mothers and children and their deep connection with the natural environment. She found that mothers in these cultures kept their babies in constant contact with their bodies throughout the vulnerable infant stage. As toddlers the children were given more and more independence through shared tasks and activities that enabled them to grow into confident caring and balanced young adults. Her stories and photographs chronicle the ancient art of mothering and describe ways mothers in the modern world can incorporate these indigenous methods into their own lives. Jan Reynolds is co-author of EVEREST GRAND CIRCLE and the author of VANISHING CULTURES a series of seven photography books for children published by Harcourt Brace. Her photographs and articles have appeared in NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC the NEW YORK TIMES and assorted outdoor magazines. She lives in Stowe Vermont.

MOTHER IS A VERB

Parker, Mina

"Mothers . . . care for, cultivate, attend to, watch over, look after, nurse, hug and kiss, count to ten, irritate us, get all mushy, make us proud, wash behind our ears . . .

We don't need a dictionary; for most of us "mother" is the first word we ever learn. And besides being the name we call out when we're sick, afraid, or proud of our accomplishments, mother is a verb. So here's to mothers and everything they do.
