TEENS WITH THE COURAGE TO GIVE Young People Who Triumphed Over Tragedy and Volunteered to Make a Difference Jackie Waldman
Lately, troubled teens have been dominating the headlines. But there are other stories that deserve the spotlight--stories about the many teenagers who have dedicated themselves to important, socially useful volunteer work and who will lead their generation toward a more hopeful tomorrow.
The fourth in Conari Press' "Call to Action" series, Teens with the Courage to Give profiles thirty amazing young people throughout the United States and Canada who overcame great personal odds to reach out and help others while healing themselves in the process. Each has founded or is linked to a nonprofit organization that is also profiled in the book, to encourage other teens to embrace volunteerism.
In these inspiring pages, to name just a few of these heroic teenagers, you'll meet an amputee who runs in the Paralympics and spurs others on with his inner resolve; the son of a cancer patient who created support groups around the country for kids with sick parents; a girl who helped her mother and younger sister as they died of aids and who is now an aids awareness and prevention volunteer; and one of the students from the Littleton, Colorado, shooting who has gone on to create a teen drop-in center.
Through their courageous first-person stories, these teens show that they are part of the solution to what ails today's society. Includes an extensive resource guide of volunteer opportunities and a classroom/group discussion guide.
TELEPORTATION A Practical Guide for the Metaphysical Traveler Gwen Totterdale and Jessica Severn
The art of teleportation is more than theory-based. It springs from a well of ancient knowledge that encourages expansion and exploration. To go anywhere at a moment's thought you must begin by knowing you have already arrived. Only then are you free to choose resources that acknowledge your wisdom rather than question it. A humbling experience teleportation because it brings to you the wisdom of the ancients in a world that does not support such knowledge and it is to you to live the knowledge. It is for you to live the knowledge in a world that believes in the physical world and nothing beyond those that would silence you or the abilities you wish to express. When it becomes more important to you to love your process of creation then you will experience teleportation.

THANK YOUR WICKED PARENTS Blessings from a Difficult Childhood Richard Bach
THANK YOUR WICKED PARENTS has at its core a shocking but undeniable truth: Some parents are wicked and repeatedly lash their helpless children with abuse and humiliation. Other parents, while not intentionally malicious, nevertheless fail to provide their family with the loving kindness that they need and deserve. But the author, also, offers a positive message: While uncaring, cruel parents can't change the long history of their abuse, grown-up children should not only let the misery of the past go, but, also, learn from the lessons that their parents unintentionally taught them through their actions. In other words, the pain of the past can be transformed into blessings.
A unique book, THANK YOUR WICKED PARENTS is intended to offend abusive parents and, more importantly, to provide their adult children with a new perspective on the past and a path to a far brighter future.

THERE ARE NO MISTAKES Becoming Comfortable with Life As It Is, Not As It "Should" Be Eleanor Wiley and Caroline Pincus
There are no mistakes -- there are only choices. That is the simple premise of There Are No Mistakes, which Eleanor Wiley has learned in twenty-five years of sobriety as a mediator, an artist, and a teacher.
"For many years I tried to make my life conform to a lot of shoulds. Not until I got into recovery through Alcoholics Anonymous did I realize just how many 'shoulds' I had been trying to follow. Along my own travels, first through the Twelve Steps and now through my teaching around the world, I have come across many people who walk through the world in comfort. Their lives aren't easy, they have just accepted them and approach them with a certain grace and ease. As I thought about what they had in common, I identified eleven attributes." The eleven attributes cultivated include:1) Know where you came from, 2) Know your story. 3) Accept yourself. 4) Own your pain, hurt, and vulnerability. 5) Laugh at yourself. 6) Find community. 7) Take care of yourself. 8) Give yourself permission to change your mind. 9) Be willing to fall apart and put yourself back together again. 10) Create a tool box. 11) Go with the flow.
This astoundingly candid and simple book is illustrated with personal stories from the author and people she has encountered on her path, along with specific and simple exercises to do at the end of each chapter.
Wiley acknowledges that you won't be perfect and you may not be happy all of the time, and you may not be rich or amazingly enlightened, but you will be okay. And, the thing about okay is that it's really a great thing--it's about moving through the world with a sense of grace and ease.

THERE IS LIFE AFTER DEATH Compelling Reports from Those Who Have Glimpsed the Afterlife Roy Abraham Varghese
Is death the end? Or, to put it another way, do we survive bodily death? Some shrug their shoulders and declare we simply can't know. Others just say “No.” And a few, flying their philosophical colours, pretentiously profess to not even understand the question.
Curiously, the overwhelming majority of human beings throughout the course of history have taken it for granted that death is not the end, that there is a life after death. This striking and seemingly instinctive belief has been embodied in the religious traditions and philosophical reflections of most cultures. THERE IS LIFE AFTER DEATH is the first of its kind in that it assembles and analyses a comprehensive range of data on life after death and then provides a framework to understand the data. No previous book has given a concrete structure of the afterlife that is based on the accounts of “eye”-witnesses, as well as on data from diverse sources.
“I am confident that breakthroughs will soon bring genuine advances toward rational comprehension of humankind's deepest mystery. THERE IS LIFE AFTER DEATH is conceptual in that Mr. Varghese respects a fundamental limitation which is ignored by many scholars who address the subject. Namely, the question of an afterlife is not an easy one.” - Raymond A. Moody, from the Foreword
Death is not a frightening, final act, but part of a continuum of being. When she had a near-death experience at 32, the author's life changed forever with an extraordinary revelation: There is no death. Death was, instead, euphoric, but she chose to return to earth, as she had a small child. Only then did she begin to find the real meaning and purpose of life. Her book includes · comfort for those grieving the deaths of loved ones · information to understand the death process · help to understand other levels of reality · explanations about what happens when we die · suggestions to help others facing death · descriptions of karma, reincarnation and suicides · the importance of clearing up old guilts and grudges and more

THERE'S SOMETHING UNDER THE BED! explores the often complex relationships between children and the paranormal, and focuses special attention on the sometimes startling realities behind children's “imaginations.”

THEY DONT SEE WHAT I SEE How to Talk with Loved Ones Who Have Crossed Over Ruth Berger
Ruth Berger was afraid of ghosts. For many years, she refused to acknowledge their presence - resisted their presence - even though she had long known of her psychic abilities and made her living as a standup psychic and medical intuitive. When ghosts started to interrupt her shows to give her messages, Ruth finally realized that it was time for her to acknowledge them. She discovered she could use her rare ability to speak to the loved ones of those who had passed on.
Berger tells us there are two main reasons why ghosts contact the living. The living need them. Or the dead need the living to do something. Berger shares actual stories of her conversations with ghosts and how she used those episodes to help the living and the dead. Meet Ellen, a hospitalized 11-year-old whose dead grandfather comforted her after she was abused. And Mary, whose husband contacted Ruth from the grave to prevent their daughter's suicide.
With her no-nonsense style, down-to-earth stories, and helpful hints, Berger demonstrates how almost anyone can learn to listen to the voices that might be trying to reach them from beyond.
Each chapter provides steps to "see what I see" to develop channeling abilities. They Don't See What I See also includes tips to prepare for channeling and methods to use while channeling to avoid contacting evil spirits.
