Product Description
Customer Reviews
This book details my direct experience with the Divine that helped me to unravel a life history of addiction and abuse and awaken to the true nature of existence. Utilizing the refined gift of automatic writing and direct communion via an inner landscape, "Waking Up Divine" chronicles my comprehensive journey into higher degrees of knowing by asking these specific questions: "Who Am I and Why Am I Here?" "Why Do I Suffer?" "Why Do I Continue to Suffer Even After Awakening?" "What's Actually True?" "What is the Pathway to My Greatest Health and Wealth?" "What is the Pathway to My Most Fulfilling Relationships?" and "What is the Pathway to My Greatest Service?" The specific and detailed answers to these questions creates a kaleidoscope of awareness that dispels the ignorance and resistance of the mind, and invites a visceral experience of your Soul. There are "visitations" with sacred spiritual beings such as Jesus of Nazareth, Mother Mary, Buddha, Lord Ganesha, Saint Germain, Isis, ArchAngels and Gurus that help provide meaningful reflections and a captivating story of the magic and miracles that can arise from the practice of self-inquiry.

Once A Teacher is a singular sort of memoir about how a bricklayer’s daughter blazered her way into the English middle classes. It’s the classic baby-boomer story: that generation of working-class scholarship kids who with brainpower for ammunition got to grammar school and on to a free university education - changing social class in the process.<br /><br />What distinguishes Chris’s story is her pin-sharp memory and keen, affectionate sense of humour. She has a sharp eye for the absurdities of life - especially within her own idiosyncratic family - and powerfully evokes the sights and sounds of the Fifties and Sixties: nostalgia for her contemporaries and barely credible to younger generations. There’s a whole raft of memorable characters, seen first through the clear eyes of a wondering child and then from the perspective of growing up in a changing world. There’s an underlying, unifying theme: a passion for social justice, true education, which never becomes polemical. <br /><br />Chris assures us that some names have been changed to protect the guilty…

‘DREAMWALKING’ is based on the true story of an athletically gifted young man named J.W. <br />He is accidentally pushed off a cliff which leaves him paralyzed from the waist down at 23 years old.This happens before the American’s with Disabilities Act, so his life gets much worse after the accident.<br />He has no money. His girlfriend doesn’t want him any more. His father’s out of the picture. <br />So, he ends up in a state-run nursing home which turns out to be a 'cuckoo’s nest' for old people.<br /><br />Initially he is depressed, in a wheelchair and living with a comedic cast of unusual characters. Fortunately, his grey haired African-American roommate becomes this young man’s best friend and confidant. The wise old man even helps him with a plan to get him out. <br /><br />The plan soon becomes derailed by the head of the nursing home. The Headmaster enlists his two “gang-member” type nurse’s aides to intimidate our paralyzed young man. J.W. overcomes all the hurdles and becomes the hero to the old folks and much more.<br /><br />What he achieves while in this temporary purgatory becomes of national significance in America.

Meditation retreats have become increasingly popular in recent years. While considerable effort is put forth by the organizers of these retreats, oftentimes meditators have not adequately prepared, nor do they have a plan for how to best benefit from their experiences afterwards. While the teachers often are incredibly experienced, they may not empathize with the specific trials of modern urban life - its chaos and neuroses abound. If you are someone who's grown up in such a world, learning about the journey through the first ten-day meditation retreat that changed my life can be helpful. This book is the first in a series written to appeal to those interested in the benefits, with full disclosure on my mistakes, what I wish I knew, and an in-depth look at why it was the most life-changing event I've been fortunate enough to experience. <br /><br />While this series may be applicable to many forms of meditation retreats, it is catered specifically to Vipassana meditation, as taught by S.N. Goenka. This is the meditation technique said to have been practiced by Gotama the Buddha, liberating him from suffering and allowing him to achieve enlightenment. I spent ten days in the California desert learning the practice of Vipassana - a technique to see things as they really are, not as they appear to be.

<p>Stolen Voices can either be read as a full-length eBook or in 3 serialised eBook-only parts.</p><p>This is PART 1 of 3.</p><p>He beat them, he abused them, and he tortured them. He broke their dreams. But they came back stronger.</p><p>‘Terrie and Paul are two of the bravest people I have ever met. I have only shared the briefest glimpse into the true horrors this brother and sister have endured, but I rarely come across cases this bad. After the unspeakable abuse and shocking betrayals, two incredible human beings came through – to inspire us all.’<br />Sara Payne OBE, co-founder of Phoenix Survivors</p><p>Terrie and Paul’s step-father had been living with them for six months when the abuse and grooming began. What started as innocent conversations and goodnight kisses quickly developed into something far darker and depraved.</p><p>Everyday Terrie was assaulted and abused; her rapes were photographed, filmed and shared. Paul was regularly taunted and mercilessly beaten. But despite the bruises and the scars, and the desperate pleas for help, no one saw their pain.</p><p>But through it all they stuck together, battling for their childhoods for over a decade and masterminding creative ways to outwit their stepfather and buy themselves fleeting moments of joy.</p><p>In March 2013, thirty years on, Terrie and Paul made the brave decision to give up their right to anonymity to tell of the years of abuse they endured at the hands of their recently convicted step-father and raise awareness for the ongoing battle for justice for victims of child abuse. A powerful testament of what can be achieved through courage and love, this is their inspiring story.</p>
