"Acorns to Great Oaks – Meditations for Children" helps children to become and stay aware of the world around them, aware of their own fabulousness, aware of energy, aware of their thoughts and feelings influencing their lives and that of others, aware of their connection with this beautiful planet we live on, and aware of how they can change anything for the better, easily and quickly, in order to create trust, strength and happiness. We are creatures of habit. If we can pick up 'bad' habits (stress, anger), we can also be taught good habits (relaxation, trust, conscious breathing, forgiveness, peace…). We need to teach children how to manage their own behavior instead of having others manage it for them. Meditation and being aware is coming to a place within your heart and mind where you feel happy and trusting so you can feel good again, in and after any situation, wherever you are and as quickly as possible. Visualizing specific pictures in the mind supports this. It teaches children power and control over how they feel, what's happening and where they want to be in life! Acorns to Great Oaks – Meditations for Children contains 22 short meditations to help children on their way, so they can then easily apply 'coping mechanisms' into real life. An Audio-CD with the meditations from this book is also available (978-1-84409-727-2).

The bond between mother and child is one without equal in the history of sentient life. It encompasses avenues of connection which, to this day, have yet to be fully understood. But for Marie Delanote, the outermost shrouds of that bond were briefly lifted when her daughter Elouisa entered our world following a mere twenty-four-week pregnancy. The infant weighed little more than a pound, and in the ensuing fight for survival, hidden spiritual ties between Marie and Elouisa became increasingly manifest. Together they uncovered the chakras, mental triggers, and resultant physical events that once led to the crippling nightmare of premature birth, but would now serve as the only tools by which they could survive and outlast the shared threat to their lives. The Healing of the 1lb Baby is the true story of that which lies beyond the simple sight of man; it is the true story of physical effects wrought by unbridled energies; but above all else, it is the true story of a mother and daughter who lifted one another from the very depths of mortality in order to claim a second chance at life.
This book is composed of articles by several authors, who worked in the scientific-spiritual School of Vladimir Antonov. The main methodological advantage of this School is the development of its students as spiritual hearts, which allows them to walk the Straight Path - to realization of God's Precepts, to spiritual Perfection. The methods of the School are presented as a sequence of steps: starting from most simple, basic - to more complex, advanced.In this book the authors give methodological recommendations and modifications of the basic methods adapted to children and adolescents. The main priorities of this program are the following: laying the foundation for a spiritual attitude (that is based on love) towards other people and all living beings, developing the skills necessary for a healthy lifestyle, expanding the horizons and learning the basic ideas about the meaning of our lives on the Earth.This book is intended for teachers working with children of different ages. It can be useful to parents as well.

“Without self-esteem, the only change is an exchange of masters; with it, there is no need for masters.” —Gloria Steinem When trying to find books to give to “the countless brave and smart women I met who didn’t think of themselves as either brave or smart,” Gloria Steinem realized that books either supposed that external political change would cure everything or that internal change would. None linked internal and external change together in a seamless circle of cause and effect, effect and cause. She undertook to write such a book, and ended up transforming herself as well as others. The result of her external plus internal reflection is this bestselling and truly transforming book: part collection of personal stories from her own life and the lives of many others, part revolutionary guide to finding community and inspiration. Steinem finds role models in a very young and uncertain Gandhi as well as unlikely heroes from the streets to history. Revolution from Within addresses the core issues of self-authority and unjust external authority, and argues that the first is necessary to transform the second.

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY MARTIN EDWARDS 'Small hostilities were growing; vague jealousies were gaining strength; and far off, wasn't there a nebulous hint of approaching tragedy in the air?' Welworth Garden City in the 1940s is a forward-thinking town where free spirits find a home-vegetarians, socialists, and an array of exotic religious groups. Chief among these are the Children of Osiris, led by the eccentric High Prophet, Eustace K. Mildmann. The cult is a seething hotbed of petty resentment, jealousy and dark secrets - which eventually lead to murder. The stage is set for one of Inspector Meredith's most bizarre and exacting cases. This witty crime novel by a writer on top form is a neglected classic of British crime fiction.
