SOLACE OF SOLITUDE Afterlife Visits: A Journey Janice Gray Kolb
Some days the beauty of life seems to confound us in ways that are quite remarkable. Then there are those dark days when life has lost its song and even its purpose. This is the journey of SOLACE OF SOLITUDE. It flows from exquisite joy to the deep shadows of despair. But this despair is not final and in fact is a necessary part of our journey toward completion, where the beauty of life becomes so pervasive, that life's bumps can't jar us loose from the tranquillity and peace that fills our minds.
The first nine meditations of this book were written while the author was experiencing completion and happiness in her personal life, yet was plagued by the sad events of 9/11. These meditations were written to find consolation and to help others come to a more consoling resolution to their problems.
The situation suddenly changed with the death of the author's beloved companion, a cat named Rochester. Jan found that her thinking and approach to the subjects she had planned to discuss were radically altered. Rochester became the instrument for exposing her to a new view of life and death. Part 2 is a description of what she has done, experienced and realised as a result of Rochester's passing. It is a study of "afterlife" experiences and the peace and understanding that now control her existence.
Jan feels that these wonderful realizations could not have come without being alone within her heart and mind - they could not have occurred without solitude. Through this solitude she was able to achieve solace, a much different experience than simple closure. Perhaps by going aside in solitude you also will find solace in life and better understand the anatomy of grief.

Each workbook provides a friendly but neutral environment, including plenty of space in which to write and draw. The exercises are balanced between left and right brain, thinking and feeling, and follow a therapeutic sequence: creating an alliance, debriefing painful memories, exploring delayed reactions, identifying resources and coping strategies, and integrating the experience.

SOMETIMES I FEEL..... How to Help Your Child Manage Difficult Feelings Dr Samantha Seymour
How can a parent help a child who feels sad, worried, shy or angry? This imaginative book uses photos of children with simple stories to help both parent and child discuss these difficult emotions. Clinical psychologist Samantha Seymour has created a 'storybook' resource for parents to read with their young children (aged 2–7). Each story contains ideas for how a child might deal with times when emotions overwhelm them. Practical information for parents is, also, included.
Samantha Seymour writes:
'If children are often thinking about things in a negative light, then it is probable that their emotions will also be negative. It's vital that we help children learn to develop more positive and realistic ways of thinking. Research shows that children who can understand and cope with emotions do better in school, form stronger relationships, have fewer behavioural problems and generally lead happier, healthier and less stressful lives.'
SOPHIA Aspects of the Divine Feminine Past and Present Susanne Schaup
In Eastern culture the concept of the coexistence of the feminine and masculine within the divine is commonly accepted. But in the West we have overemphasised the masculine in the divine and we have seen many global tragedies as a result. Now we are seeking to regain balance as evidenced in the resurgent interest in the wisdom of the Goddess and ancient matriarchal religions. But as Dr. Schaup's work explains the Divine Feminine has been with us all along hidden in ancient Christian scripture and taking many different forms and names in Eastern and Western culture alike. She is Sophia or Divine Wisdom. Dr. Schaup heralds a paradigm shift in our concept of god with this provocative chronicle of the manifestation of the Divine Feminine throughout history and in the world's diverse cultures. By tracing Sophia's presence Dr. Schaup's work does not simply advocate a return to matriarchal worship but serves as a beacon in the quest of our time to overcome alienation between human and nature man and woman human and God. Dr. Schaup explores Lady Wisdom in Biblical Scripture Sophia in the Old Testament Lilith and Sophia's counterparts in the Andean Hindu and Chinese religions. Examining the patriarchal dilemma Dr. Schaup brings to light the work of Christian mystics such as Hildegard of Bingen Jacob Boehme and the Russian Sophiologists. She places emphasis on the work of Otfried Eberz a contemporary Sophiologist who makes a radical appeal to modern women to reclaim the consciousness of the Goddess. Dr. Schaup shows Sophia to be a universal figure representing wisdom femininity motherhood and sexuality. She writes especially for women coming from a Christian background who are interested in expanding their quest for spiritual wholeness.
SORCERERS' CROSSING A Woman's Journey Taisha Abelar
Foreword by Carlos Castaneda
Some twenty years ago, anthropologist, Carlos Castaneda, electrified millions of readers by describing his initiation - under the Yaqui Indian brujo, Don Juan - into an alternate reality. Now Taisha Abelar, who was taught by the female members of Don Juan's group, recounts her own "crossing" in this arresting book.
While travelling in Mexico, Abelar became involved with a group of sorcerers and began a rigorous physical and mental training process designed to enable her to breach the limits of ordinary perception. THE SORCERERS CROSSING details that process, giving us a highly practical sense of the responsibilities and perils that face a woman sorcerer. Abelar's enthralling story is invaluable as a virtual "sorcerers manual", as anthropology and as a provocative work of women's spirituality.
The renowned Edgar Cayce gave the most thorough and insightful discourses on the true nature of our being and how to become aware of these non-physical but most influential portions.

Soul is our developing true self; here is where our heart's deepest hopes and fears lie. Filled with stories insights and guidance this is a must read if you wish to fully understand yourself and your life.
Edgar Cayce was born in 1877 and lived until 1945; for more than forty years of his life he gave what are called psychic 'readings.' As a young man he discovered that he had an unusual ability to put himself into an altered state of consciousness. He seemed to have access to virtually all knowledge. He was called 'the sleeping prophet' and is the most documented psychic of our time.
