PASSIONATE BUDDHA Wisdom on Intimacy and Enduring Love Robert Sachs
Beginning his book with the ringing question 'what are you waiting for?' Robert Sachs goes on to interweave traditional Buddhist thought with the concerns of the modern couple. Using clear playful language Sachs describes the different aspects of healthy relationships within a Buddhist context. However rather than just setting an ideal he clarifies how Buddhist practices not only can be integrated into a modern lifestyle but also can be powerful tools for the many changes that occur in any loving relationship. Sachs also considers the role of each individual in a relationship showing that a couple may develop or possess qualities of being an indivisible unit but that where the real work lies is when two people are committed to grow and change with one another. He offers techniques for finding oneself both in and out of a relationship and ideas on how to deal with anger and other emotions that arise in the course of life - emotions that occur most intensely over the course of an intimate relationship. PASSIONATE BUDDHA acts as a guide for all those 'fumbling towards ecstasy' in today's confusing world of relationships. Interweaves Tantric Buddhist teachings with modern concerns such as monogamy and contraception. Gives a holistic view of a healthy relationship from physical pleasure to emotional connections and spiritual transformation. Discusses love in the broader Buddhist concepts of karma and reincarnation.
PAST LIFE DREAMWORK Healing the Soul through Understanding Karmic Patterns Sabine Lucas
In PAST LIFE DREAMWORK, Sabine Lucas examines “soul bloodlines” - character traits, talents and life issues that are the common elements and circumstances of successive past lives. Found threaded through our dreams, these bloodlines reveal the forces manifesting in this life and, taken together, they shape individuality as well as destiny within the reincarnation cycle. Though a wealth of past-life related material regularly surfaces in dreams, until now, dreamwork has been largely ignored as a therapy for successfully integrating past-life experiences.
Using the results of 27 years of personal and professional work, Lucas explains that past-life memories help us work out karma on the macro level and trauma on a micro level. She distinguishes three types of past-life dreams - classic, informatory and hybrid - and demonstrates how to distinguish these from other dreams. Her dramatic case studies illustrate the effectiveness of dream therapy in recognising and integrating the resonant and recurrent circumstances and ethical dilemmas that are played out in the subconscious mind. These psychologically revealing stories bear witness to how individuals are made whole through the integration of common strands of forgotten or repressed past lives. Lucas shows that the integration of past lives enriches the conscious self and, also, promotes universal tolerance through an understanding of the patterns of our psychic soul inheritance.
PAST LIFE HEALING CD Meditations To Release the Past & Enrich the Present 794504716528 Alana Fairchild
Your Soul has quite a story to tell. Sometimes the patterns in your life that won’t heal, despite your best efforts, are actually your Soul trying to get your attention. Once you go back and release the past, you become free in this lifetime to move on.
Past life healing is not about avoiding the present, but about enriching it, bringing more of our soul energy that spans many lifetimes into this lifetime, so that we can live in this life with more vitality, consciousness and ability.
The energy in this CD is unconditionally loving and will hold you safe as you travel back in time to unravel some of the mysteries in your own life, and bring more of your true Divine Self to your present life, where it can blossom and play.
A man's continuing and recurring dreams are so full of color and vivid details that he becomes convinced that they are not dreams, but memories. He realizes he is reliving scenes from a former life in the 1860's as a Confederate soldier. The dreams haunt him as he seeks validation of their reality. You will be amazed at the determination and dedication this man possessed to search out verification for every detail. It is the simplicity and honesty of his accounts that give them validity.
It was 1923, and a man named Arthur Lammers was receiving a psychic reading from Edgar Cayce when, for the first time in the readings, a person's past life was mentioned. From that point on, Edgar Cayce would give life readings (the second largest group of readings in the over 14,000 given by him), which often discussed how people's past lives were affecting them in their current life. Jaffin has pulled together invaluable insights on reincarnation and our purpose here on earth from the rich source of these Cayce readings to give us a deeper understanding of reincarnation in all its many aspects, physically, spiritually and mentally, while explaining how it supports us as we strive to fulfil the very purpose of our souls.
PAST LIVES AND PRESENT KARMA will give readers a deeper understanding of reincarnation and why it may be responsible for the people in your life today. Finally, Jaffin takes the reader beyond life on earth and into the role that planetary sojourns play as given by the psychic readings of Edgar Cayce.
PATCHWORK OF COMFORTS Small Pleasures for Peace of Mind Wiseman, Carol
Author Carol Wiseman asked people around the country to send her descriptions of their favorite comforts. The result is A Patchwork of Comforts, a collection of comforting and comfortable things to soothe body, mind, and spirit. Comforts are organized alphabetically--and Wiseman adds sidebars with bits of trivia, and even comforting recipes, such as a recipe for Zabaglione, a dessert sauce.
A-to-Z comforts include: * Alone Time: The only voice you hear is your own * Aromas: Trigger memories * Brainrest: A chance to recoup and regroup * Crosswords: The right word satisfies * Cuddling: Back to the womb * Daydreams: Going to the movies free * Dogs: Part of the family * Vacation: A break from responsibility * Water: Watch it, hear it, drink it, play in it * X-tra Time: Ditching the clock lets you finish...whatever * Young at Heart: Keeps you in the loop * ZZZ's: Renews and reactivates
There are plenty of comforting activities to take the sting out of even the worst days: sitting by a fire after a long walk in the cold; watching birds in the back yard; enjoying a big cup of homemade hot chocolate; bathing by candlelight; a weekend camping trip--with no electronic appliances.A Patchwork of Comforts is a homecoming in a book--welcoming, warm, and wise.
A book written especially for "one of those days," dipping into A Patchwork of Comforts is like a long soak in a hot tub.
PATH OF EMOTIONS Transform Emotions Into Energy to Achieve Your Greatest Potential Dr. Synthia Andrews
Do you feel there is more to reality than what your five senses reveal? Are emotions controlling the quality of your life? Do you avoid uncomfortable feelings or suppress past trauma?
You may have been taught that emotions aren't logical and, therefore, can't be trusted. That happiness depends on suppressing or avoiding “negative” feelings. On the contrary, emotions are the key to discerning energy reality. They are the language of subtle energy providing information, direction, motivation and vitality. Understanding and harnessing the power of emotions will help you make better decisions, heal your past and create the life of your dreams.
THE PATH OF EMOTIONS explains how emotions are the key to mind-body communication, translating information from subtle energy realms into useable guidance. Reading it will help you:
· Interpret your instincts and gut reactions · Expand your subtle energy awareness and increase your intuition · Identify and release emotions that are binding your energy, inhibiting your potential and causing physical pain and dysfunction · Free up and use the energy currently bound up in limiting emotional patterns · Use emotions to empower your intentions and manifest the life you desire

PATH OF MIRACLES The Seven Life-Changing Principles That Lead to Purpose and Fulfillment Samuel Rodriguez
Just as Christ's resurrection from his empty tomb happened not far from where he had been crucified, our victories usually happen close to the place of our most difficult circumstances. And just as Peter and John found folded linen placed intentionally where Christ's head and feet had lain, so can we find guideposts in our own lives' journeys. The goal: to recognize what God has placed throughout our journey in order to guide us toward fulfilment.
Taking the story of Jesus and the empty tomb as his basis and inspiration, Reverend Rodriguez explains how these life-changing principles can be learned to create a richer, transformed life.
PATH OF SYNCHRONICITY Align Yourself with Your Life's Flow Dr. Allan G. Hunter
Synchronicity has often been explained away as pure chance, coincidence and luck. And yet for millions of people over the centuries these seemingly random events have been greeted as meaningful and people have chosen to act upon the intuitions that they had about these events. C.G. Jung felt that synchronous moments were those when we were most powerfully in touch with the Collective Unconscious, tapping into the wisdom of all mankind - if we choose to hear it.
The first part of this book offers a way of seeing synchronicity anew, observing how it appears in 3000 years of literature and myth. The second part gives practical instructions about how we can remain free of the snares of the ego. If we know how to recognise the mind-traps we can train ourselves to avoid them and grow our compassion at the same time.
This resource is a supremely practical guide to solving a difficult problem; the question is not: what am I supposed to do? Instead it is: what does the universe need me to do?
A brilliant meditation on mental health in the modern world; alienation and mental health; ways to overcome 'the insane society'; a comprehensive analysis of prevailing concepts of mental health against Fromm’s views on overcoming destructive narcissism and social determinants of mental health; and a look at humankind’s alleged passivity in relation to dreams, child development and psychology.

Growing numbers of the population are dependant on alcohol or other addictive substances such as heroin amphetamines or cocaine. Most people use chemicals to transform painful feelings (anxiety fear and depression) in to pleasurable feelings (confidence courage and elation). This book helps readers unlearn this destructive pattern. The 8-step program can be completed in 18 to 20 weeks and is compatible with 12-step philosophy. Each chapter contains first person accounts that clarify concepts and personalise the lessons and exercises. While other chemical dependency programs focus primarily on abstinence the PATHWAYS TO SOBRIETY WORKBOOK leads readers to sobriety - a healing from chemical dependency. Part 1 describes the nature of addiction. Part 2 shows the reader how to stop using chemicals. Parts 3 and 4 explain how to develop a contented clean and sober lifestyle.
To survive the roller-coaster ride of life, with its ever-changing shifts from pleasure to pain, gain to loss and praise to blame, requires a substantial depth of patience. In this life-changing book, Allan Lokos sheds new light on this much-sought-after state of mind and provides a road map for cultivating greater patience in one's life.
According to Lokos, to develop a depth of patience we must first acknowledge the unhappiness caused by our impatience and anger in its many manifestations-from mild annoyance to rage. In this revelatory book, Lokos draws on his many years as a Buddhist practitioner and spiritual teacher, as well as interviews with a wide range of individuals who have had their patience tested-often dramatically so-and lays out a compelling path to the heart of patience."
