The Power Of Modern Spirituality

How to Live a Life of Compassion and Personal Fulfilment

By William Bloom

  • Paperback
  • £13.99

William Bloom, the UK's leading MBS teacher and holistic spokesperson, presents an accessible, down-to-earth strategy and practical philosophy for guiding our lives and developing our inner selves.

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.

This is a marvellous book full of practical wisdom and helpful suggestions of how to nurture spiritual growth in everyday life. Connecting the best of the traditional religious practices of different faiths with some of the newest insights of modern therapeutic practice and a scientific worldview, William Bloom shows how we can become vessels for the energy of spirit.

Brilliant, erudite, intellectually delightful, practical, logical, honest...In an age of beliefs which are often ill-formed, misguided, self-serving and nonsensical, this book succeeds in making sense of the word "spirituality" and applying it lucidly to our lives. William saves not only our souls but our hearts and brains too. Read it and buy one for everyone you know ...

Mindfulness for All

Jon Kabat-Zinn
Authors:
Jon Kabat-Zinn

More than twenty years ago, Jon Kabat-Zinn changed the way we thought about awareness in everyday life with his now-classic introduction to mindfulness, Wherever You Go, There You Are. He followed that up with 2005's Coming to Our Senses, the definitive book for our time on the connection between mindfulness and our well-being on every level, physical, cognitive, emotional, social, planetary, and spiritual.Now, Coming to Our Senses is being repackaged into 4 smaller books, each focusing on a different aspect of mindfulness, and each with a new foreword written by the author. In the fourth of these books, Mindfulness for All (which was originally published as Part VII and Part VIII of Coming to Our Senses), Kabat-Zinn focuses on how mindfulness really can be a tool to transform the world--explaining how democracy thrives in a mindful context, and why mindfulness is a vital tool for both personal and global understanding and action in these tumultuous times. By "coming to our senses"--both literally and metaphorically--we can become more compassionate, more embodied, more aware human beings, and in the process, contribute to the healing of the body politic as well as our own lives in ways both little and big.

The Energies of Love

Donna Eden, David Feinstein
Authors:
Donna Eden, David Feinstein

A relationship begins with the meeting of two unique energies. This union of energies determines the way you communicate, fight, love, and want to be loved. Donna Eden and David Feinstein draw on the real-life experiences of couples who have attended their popular 'Energies of Love' workshops, as well as their own experience as husband and wife, to show how an understanding of your energy system and that of your partner can help you build a more harmonious and loving bond.We all have different ways of making sense of the world around us, but when faced with conflict, especially with those we care most about, we tend to revert to one of four 'Energetic Stress Styles':* Visuals are extremely passionate and inspire others. In moments of conflict, their take on the situation can overshadow what is occurring, undermining their ability to empathize with their partner.* Kinaesthetics are generous and compassionate but their caring nature pulls them in too many directions. They try to meet others' needs at the expense of their own, causing resentment.* Digitals are rational and principled but they can become closed to others' perspectives and feelings.* Tonals have a gift for understanding others but during conflict they can often misinterpret the signs, hearing what was never said, felt, or thought.The Energies of Love is filled with tools to help you diffuse arguments and energy exercises to increase your overall sense of joy and wellbeing. This practical guide serves as a powerful resource for anyone who wishes to build a rich partnership while maintaining the spark that keeps a relationship exciting.

In 1975, Dannion Brinkley was struck and killed by lightning. When he awoke in a morgue twenty-eight minutes later, everything was forever changed. During the next twenty years, Brinkley had not one, but two more near-death experiences. Each time, he visited the other side and received valuable lessons and spiritual knowledge, which he incorporated into his daily life. Now, in Secrets of the Light, he shares the lessons he learned in the afterlife so we, too, can fulfil our true purpose in life.Brinkley outlines the 'Four-Fold Path to Power' - Love, Choice, Belief, and Prayer - that will empower you to follow your destiny. He then unveils the Seven Truths from the afterlife and how to use them to enhance health, happiness, and prosperity. We also learn how to perform a 'daily life review' - a quick assessment of your daily life that acts as a reminder to stay true to yourself and treat others with kindness. With wit, humor, and compassion, Brinkley shows that by always being conscious of your actions and how they affect others, you will find happiness in this life and beyond

Towards The True Kinship Of Faiths

The Dalai Lama
Authors:
The Dalai Lama

No country, no culture, no person today is untouched by what happens in the rest of the world, and globalization presents many challenges. The Dalai Lama understands that the essential task of humanity in the twenty-first century must be to cultivate peaceful coexistence. In this book the Dalai Lama shows how in our globalized world, nations, cultures and individuals can find opportunities to connect through their shared human nature. All faiths turn to compassion as a guiding principle for living a good life. It is the responsibility of all people with an aspiration to spiritual perfection to help develop a deep recognition of the value of other faiths, and it is on that basis alone that we can cultivate genuine respect and cooperation.Towards the True Kinship of Faiths is a hopeful yet realistic look at how humanity can embrace a harmonious future.
