TALKING TO EXTRATERRESTRIALS Transforming Our World with the Help of Enlightened Beings Lisette Larkins
Join a group of enlightened extraterrestrials, who extend an invitation through their contactee, Lisette Larkins. They tell us that they are here now and offer to help us along the way as we gently shift toward a peaceful future. The first edition of Talking to Extraterrestrials was first published in 2002. Since that time the author has had repeated contact with these ETs, and developed a broader spiritual perspective that she shares in this revised and expanded second edition. While earlier she struggled with the emotional fallout from her encounters, this expanded text now focuses on the promise of humanity's betterment as a result of embracing our true spiritual power as creative beings. Only by recognizing our innate abilities can we effectively design the experiences we desire. Our universal neighbours describe the way they relate to each other, raise their children, and conduct their peaceful society. They inspire us to become fully empowered, creative beings adept at manifestation. They explain why they have not yet landed on the White House lawn, but that our expanding spiritual readiness will soon allow clearer evidence of their presence here. Lisette Larkins offers us a glimpse into a way of being where we too can create the life of our dreams, and become adept at magically producing whatever is needed to thrive. They inspire and challenge us to perceive of ourselves and them as neighbours within the same community of families and to accept our responsibility as self-reliant masters of creation.
TALKING TO EXTRATERRESTRIALS Communicating with Enlightened Beings Lisette Larkins
You might be surprised to know that millions of otherwise ordinary people around the world are currently having some sort of contact with extra-terrestrials but have never told anyone for fear of ridicule - and worse. Lisette Larkins is such an experiencer and embodies a brave new voice poised to spearhead a movement in which others like her finally step forward in greater numbers and share with us what they have learned from these fascinating beings. Confronting our cultural prejudice Lisette Larkins not only describes these extra-terrestrials as enlightened but decided to become the first reporter for the entire human race by interviewing them seeking answers to mysteries humans have pondered since the outset of the UFO phenomenon. Why are they here? How and why do they make crop circles? Are they crossbreeding with humans? Lisette Larkins offers us a rare and precious glimpse of one of the most closely held secrets of humanity: that many humans are already communicating with extra-terrestrials. Come join her and meet our extra-terrestrial neighbours who we once called alien.
Is it really possible to talk with animals? Or at least to realise that they are talking to us all the time? Patty Summers listens and understands. An animal communicator Summers can converse directly with a variety of animal species from cats and dogs to rabbits horses and iguanas. In this beautiful and moving book the animals share their wisdom their perspective on life and even how they feel about human beings. The animals can teach us many things and Summers uses her abilities to help humans listen and to aid humans and animals in understanding one another better. She also describes the ways that animals comprehend the world and explains that they always understand the intent of human communications if not the words. And she teaches that they share our wants and needs as they desire the same things that humans do: love compassion kindness and respect; and they do not want to be thought of as pets or as beings to be exploited. Summers shares numerous encounters with animals and each story has a valuable lesson - each is a gift of spirit from the animals. We have so much to learn from our animal companions domestic and otherwise. TALKING WITH THE ANIMALS provides a rare glimpse inside the minds of the creatures with which we share our planet.
Known only for the virtues of its sexual practice, ancient Tantric ideology is a universal and wide-reaching ideology virtually ignored in the West. In Tantra: The Cult of the Feminine, one of Europe's foremost Tantric authors and teachers, Andre Van Lysebeth, gives readers a balanced, well-informed, modern examination of the secret teachings and symbolism of Tantra.
Espousing no dogma, Tantra involves a search for reality that contradicts neither science nor religion. For Tantra, all of the myriad energy forms in the universe -- gravity, nuclear cohesion, electromagnetism -- exist throughout the cosmos. "Scientifically speaking, the universe is a gigantic continuum ranging from sub-atomic to astronomical dimensions. Tantrists have perceived this unity for over thirty-five centuries," points out van Lysebeth in his introduction.
Originally published in 1992, Tantra has become the classic text on the subject, the source for serious students. Eight full-color illustrations and 36 line drawings complement a comprehensive and contemporary explanation of Tantra, complete with meditations.

Extended orgasms strengthen rapport in relationships physically rejuvenate the body and boost mental health.

TANTRIC SEX FOR MEN Making Love a Meditation Diana Richardson and Michael Richardson
Fulfilling sex nourishes love, increases vitality and boosts mental health. Unfortunately, prevailing attitudes about male sexuality and what is good sex work against these innate features by focusing on the excitement of ejaculation as the one and only goal.
Using the tantric guidelines they have practiced for more than 25 years, Diana and Michael Richardson show men how to move beyond their preconceptions of sex as a goal-oriented - and often unintentionally stressful - event so they can relax into sex as a meditative union of complementary energies. They explain how retaining semen allows for increased vitality and extended lovemaking sessions and show the relationship-strengthening benefits of deep, sustained penetration. They, also, explain how to perform soft penetration and how to avoid premature ejaculation.
TANTRIC SEX FOR MEN includes tried-and-true foreplay approaches, diagrams of sexual position sequences, ways to increase sexual sensitivity through awareness and how to have ecstatic experiences through reaching a woman's body on a sexually deeper level. The authors, also, demonstrate how the sexual organs can be used to heal both men and women physically, emotionally and spiritually.
TANTRIC TEMPLES Eros and Magic in Java Peter Levenda
Tantra is one of the most misunderstood of the esoteric disciplines. In order to get a clear idea as to the nature of Tantric ritual and belief it is necessary to go where Tantra is still practised and from where important Tantric teachings originated a thousand years ago: the island of Java in present-day Indonesia.
This book illustrates the history of Tantrism in Java with more than a hundred photographs of temples, statues and iconography dedicated to the system -- some rarely seen before, including the recently-excavated "white temple" of Yogyakarta - and accounts of contemporary practices in the shrines, cemeteries and secret schools of Java
It is this Tantra - the Tantra of Java - that has influenced secret societies, mystics, alchemists, Kabbalists and magicians for hundreds if not thousands of years. This book tells the story of how human sexuality became a metaphor and a template for both spiritual transformation and the manipulation of reality; of how various sexual acts and psycho-biological states became the basis for a comprehensive cosmology that incorporates every aspect of human experience.
Sometimes the secrets are buried where you least expect to find them. Sometimes they are hidden in plain sight. Sometimes ... they are both. In the largest Muslim country in the world we will discover a path of Tantra so unique, yet so vibrant and alive, that we will be astonished that no one had heard of it until now.
TAOIST FOREPLAY Love Meridians and Pressure Points Mantak Chia and Kris Deva North
Taught to Chinese emperors, their wives and their concubines for thousands of years, Taoist sexual techniques help lovers harmonise their cycles of pleasure and utilise the abundance of reproductive power that is otherwise wasted in non-procreative sex. Combining the study of sex with traditional Chinese medicine, these practices stimulate and sustain sexual desire through the meridians and pressure points and enhance relationships by harmonising male (yang) and female (yin) energies.
Using easy-to-follow illustrations, TAOIST FOREPLAY guides lovers through simple acupressure massage routines connecting all the points and channels that increase pleasure and spark arousal. It shows how to prolong peak moments, maintain sexual health through prostate massage and jade egg exercises and sustain the intensity of first love through all the seasons of a maturing relationship. It, also, explains how to reveal and overcome incompatibility with the Taoist Zodiac. From foreplay to climax, these practices offer a way to keep the flame of sexual energy alive.
TASTING THE UNIVERSE People Who See Colors in Words and Rainbows in Symphonies: A Spiritual and Scientific Exploration of Synesthesia Maureen Seaberg
Foreword by William C. Bushell
A violinist sees a scarlet form when he plays a certain note; a rock star sees waves of blue and green as she composes a ballad; an actress tastes cake when she utters the word 'table.' This fascinating mingling of the senses is called 'synesthesia' and the people who possess this amazing gift are called 'synesthetes.'
Synesthesia is scientifically described as a cross-wiring or lack of chemical inhibition, between brain neurons that occurs in about five percent of the population, often among 'creatives' - musicians, artists, actors, writers and so on. Scientific research is currently being conducted throughout the world to discover more about this condition. However, experts in the fields of spirituality and quantum physics are convinced that the truth of synesthesia lies not only within traditional science, but, also, within the realm of the mystical and the ineffable.
TASTING THE UNIVERSE explains and explores: · Why survivors of near-death experiences sometimes 'return' with this amazing gift. · Why all infants are believed to be synesthetes until four months of age. · The experiences of famous synesthetes such as Itzhak Perlman, Billy Joel, Pharrell Williams and Marilyn Monroe (whose biographer, Norman Mailer, first asserted that she possessed this gift).

TEACHING KIDS TO CARE Nurturing Character and Compassion Bettie Youngs, Joanne Wolf, Joani Wafer and Dawn Lehman
TEACHING KIDS TO CARE shares, for the first time in print, the unique methods and concepts that cultivate caring and compassion in children, developed and fine-tuned during thirteen years work at Kids Korps USA by its award-winning founders.
'Dreaming about a child's future begins long before the child is actually born. We wish for them to be happy, successful, well adjusted and healthy. Unfortunately, the world sends mixed messages and children do not just download these qualities. How do we as parents ensure that our children have the empathy and integrity that we dreamed they would? How do we fight the all too human attributes of selfishness, self-absorption, complacency, bullying and isolation and teach children to care?' from TEACHING KIDS TO CARE.
By focusing on the five caring Touchstones, connection, interdependence, perspective, gratitude and inspiration, they offer ways to surround their children with actions and messages designed to strengthen character, build self-esteem and develop inner contentment. Even parents with the most chaotic schedules can use each chapter's simple suggestions for reinforcing every Touchstone in 30-second, 30-minute, 3-hour or 3- day increments.
TEACHING SOCIAL SKILLS TO YOUTH WITH MENTAL HEALTH DISORDERS Incorporating Social Skills into Treatment Planning for 109 Disorders Jennifer Resetar Volz, Tara Snyder and Michael Sterba
Here is a guide for therapists, counsellors, psychologists, teachers and other practitioners to incorporate the teaching of social skills as a component of treatment for children diagnosed with mental health disorders. Research and experience show that children and adolescents who struggle with emotional, behavioural and social problems do improve when they learn pro-social skills.
Included is an introduction to the DSM-IV-TR and other mental health assessment and evaluation tools and guidance for how to individualise treatment plans while considering children's developmental, cultural, behavioural, emotional social, genetic and biological variables.
Following a discussion of the importance and effectiveness of skill teaching in the treatment of mental health disorders, the authors provide a series of charts that list the social skills that carers and treatment providers might target for each of more than a hundred DSM-IV-TR diagnoses common for children and adolescents. Examples of treatment plans show how social skills can be integrated into plans across different settings and levels of care - home and school, foster care, residential home and psychiatric facility.

TEEN STAGES How to guide the journey to adulthood Ken Mellor & Elizabeth Mellor
According to parent educators Ken and Elizabeth Mellor parents need to stay very involved not to step back as their children become teenagers - because teenagers in the early to middle teen years actually want to be controlled despite appearances! As well as parental involvement teenagers need attention to safety clear expectations and limits and for their parents to understand what is happening. These are the cornerstones of the approach they recommend. Among the Mellors' other key points are : ¨ Teenagers grow through six very different developmental stages that mirror earlier phases in their lives from infancy on ¨ Each stage requires specific responses from parents that rarely work for the other stages ¨ Teenagers need lots of time and attention in the early to middle years particularly if they 'slip back' to more infantile behaviour ¨ Parents need to be aware of the more grown-up aspects of their teenagers' development so they can encourage this even in the face of their children's emotional immaturity
The death of a parent, sibling or friend is devastating for the teenager. Apart from death, the most common way young people experience grief is through divorce, separation, a re-marriage or creation of a blended family. Other triggers include loss of home, pets and personal property through fire, flood, obesity or poor body image.
TEENAGERS AND GRIEF is an important guide for teenagers and parents alike. Parents will find ways to help their children by showing them how to cope with loss and helping them to express their grief, thoughts and feelings. There is, also, critical information on when parents need to seek urgent outside help. Several teenagers express their feelings in the book and these give us an insight into the depths of their grief.
