The Power Of Modern Spirituality

By William Bloom
Authors:
William Bloom
In THE POWER OF MODERN SPIRITUALITY, William Bloom identifies for the first time the core strategies found at the heart of all spiritual traditions and explains how everyone - regardless of background, beliefs or personality type - can develop them and immediately put them into practice. He structures his book around the key areas of connection, reflection and service, showing us how to recognise and develop these aspects of ourselves in the context of today's challenges and crises so that we gain greater meaning and purpose in our lives.Written in a lively, intelligent and inspiring style, and drawn from Bloom's popular courses and workshops, it will help you to go more deeply into yourself and develop a greater sense of personal integrity, inner strength, a stronger connection with friends, family and colleagues, an increased sense of personal joy and of being in the driving seat of your life, and much more.

Hugh Barker
The Book of Revelation is the apocalyptic final book of the the New Testament. In the final confrontation between heaven and hell, the worlds of heaven, earth, and hell are invoked.

It has an enduring fascination for both Bible students and lay readers.

Psychic

By Sylvia Browne
Authors:
Sylvia Browne
PSYCHIC is the intimate, first-person, unapologetic, no-holds-barred story behind the story that Sylvia, at the age of 72, is finally ready to tell. In PSYCHIC, Sylvia will reveal the little known truths behind her three failed marriages, including the physical abuse, bankruptcy and legal troubles. While the press had a field day writing about it at the time, Sylvia remained quiet...until now. Sylvia will discuss her painful transitions and the financial and emotional damage inflicted by her husbands. And as an almost parenthetical lesson for all of us in forgiveness and compassion, she'll describe the experience of moving husband Dal Brown back into her house to take care of him when she learned that he was alone and in failing health. Then there are Sylvia's own physical challenges, from a series of painful hip surgeries to her relatively recent discovery that she'd suddenly gone blind in one eye, so that, at the age of 72, when she'd concluded that a limping, one-eyed woman was done when it came to romance, no one was more shocked than she when the real Mr. Right finally, impossibly showed up.

Threaded throughout are longings for love and poignant disappointments, surprising pleasures and temptations. Some will fall but some, like the small boy at the circus who sees his babysitter fly past on a trapeze wearing little more than a blue bra and spangles, will retain their feeling of awe.PERFECT LIVES, follows Polly Samson's rapturously received first collection, LYING IN BED. They are rueful, knowing, witty, poignant, bashful, bold. Her genius is in the nuance.

    Patience With God

    By Frank Schaeffer
    Authors:
    Frank Schaeffer
    Frank Schaeffer has a problem with the New Atheists. He also has a problem with the religious fundamentalists. The problem is that he doesn't see much of a difference between the two camps. Sparing no one and nothing, including himself and his fiery evangelical past, and invoking subtleties too easily ignored by the pontificators, Schaeffer adds much-needed nuance to the existing religious conversation as he challenges atheists and fundamentalists alike.

    Pictures of Lily

    By Matthew Yorke
    Authors:
    Matthew Yorke
    "I am going to find my parents... if I don't track them down I'll be one of the unlucky ones."So writes seventeen-year-old Lily Myers, for whom, adopted at birth, there are so many unanswered questions. Who are her biological parents? Does she have brothers and sisters? Where else might she have lived had if she not been given away? Most pressing is the simplest question of all: "Why was I given up?"In Lily's case there is refuge in melody. It's in the dub venues of the north of England, in the fizzing bass lines, the buzz of static. Here is the volume to quell the doubts, the fears, even the truth. Yet these melodies have the power to suggest possibilities of their own - not least when coupled with Ayahuasca, a visionary plant used by Amazonian shamans as a vehicle to commune with the spirit world, a world where there can be no secrets.Hitherto Lily's quest has been confined to this psychic plane, transcending space and time to communicate with spirits so real they are real, gathering from them clues about her past, her people. It has been at perilous cost to her mental health. Now, at eighteen, her birth certificate and adoption file are hers for the taking. But will the journey end there? Indeed can she ever come to understand the true significance of 'finding my parents'?Praise for Matthew Yorke's previous novel The March Fence:This is a novel which throbs with life and wonder at the manifold varieties of experience... The talent for writing novels may be hard to define, yet it is unmistakable when encountered... is the real thing... the best first novel that I have read in a long time. Alan Massie.A most impresseive debut. Elaine Feinstein, The Times.Distinctive, energetic...the narrative takes a real grip. Hilary Mantel. Daily Telegraph.

    A Path and a Practice

    By William Martin
    Authors:
    William Martin
    The Tao Te Ching,one of the most loved and widely translated books in human history,has appeared in countless English-language versions. But no modern translation has yet captured the essential thrust of Lao Tzu's work as a practical guide to living an awakened life. Now William Martin, whose acclaimed previous reinterpretations of the Tao (for parents, couples, and elders) have introduced or reacquainted this classic text to thousands of readers, strikingly translates the Tao's eighty-one chapters to uniquely address someone on a Tao,or path,with a practice. Martin frames his new translation with two illuminating, ground-breaking sections: "A Path," which introduces the Tao's nonlinear construction and explains how it works its themes and "A Practice," which provides practical guidance for readers exploring each of the Tao's themes in depth. Martin's genius in this new translation uncovers how directly the Tao speaks to readers on or about to embark on a spiritual journey.
