SOULS IN THE SEA

Dolphins have long been attributed with intelligence, but do they have souls? Self-awareness? Compassion? Scott Taylor, Director of the Cetacean Studies Institute, investigates the history, mythology, and science surrounding these creatures and emerges with a resounding yes. And not only do whales and dolphins merit our attention and respect in their own right: they are an index to what our future as a species can be.  

In this multi-faceted cetology compendium, Taylor surveys the portrayal of dolphins and whales in works of literature as disparate as Moby Dick and Sumerian legend, examines biologist John Lilly's research on interspecies communication, and explores the benefits of dolphin-assisted swimming therapy for disabled children and adults. Looking at the world from the perspective of one of these "souls in the sea," Taylor suggests that cetaceans are an ideal bridge between humanity and nature. Poetically written and thoughtfully illustrated with photos and drawings, Souls in the Sea is a comprehensive celebration of the biology, history, and mystique of dolphins and whales

The Gift of Change

Bestselling author of Return to Love and Law of Divine Compensation, Marianne Williamson shows people how to live without fear or worry in The Gift of Change. The time in which we now live is more difficult and stressful than people are willing to admit. We live with an abiding sense of collective anxiety. Williamson shows how we are paralyzed in our current state of fear and anger because we are not facing and dealing with the true causes of our anxieties and fears. Williamson reveals that fear and worry do not need to be the only tools in our tool box for dealing with problems in the world. As we learn to trust God and the love that surrounds us and guides us, we will see that what causes us pain is an opportunity for growth, healing, and miracles that can transform us and our world. Williamson delivers hope and healing as she illuminates ten basic changes that each of us can make as we learn to view the world through the eyes of love instead of fear.

a compendium of Herbal Magick

Every plant has its own distinct spiritual energy or its own deva. Devas are the radiant light of the Universal Divine which permeates all things.Since the earliest times people were aware that all of Nature is divine. Great and wondrous myths were told which explained the presence of divine energy as it exists in thunder, in trees and in sunlight. Some of this lore was the foundation of religions. But the simpler stories such as those of a plant's energy explored day-to-day matters like health and love. This understanding of the world has been preserved in folklore through poems, chants, ditties and spells.From researching the history of folklore from cultures around the world, patterns emerge which enable us to approach the true nature of plants' devas. This compendium presents the lore and the corresponding usage for 330 magickal herbes. Great care was taken only to include folklore that was documented as being authentic.You will meet many new herbes in this text and explore fascinating magickal and religi uses. But most of all we hope you come to respect the divine that surrounds your everyday life.

514IYPfa5YL.jpg

In The Gifts of Imperfection, Brené Brown, a leading expert on shame, authenticity, and belonging, shares ten guideposts on the power of Wholehearted living—a way of engaging with the world from a place of worthiness.

Brown engages our minds, hearts, and spirits as she explores how we can cultivate the courage, compassion, and connection to wake up in the morning and think, "No matter what gets done and how much is left undone, I am enough," and to go to bed at night thinking, "Yes, I am sometimes afraid, but I am also brave. And, yes, I am imperfect and vulnerable, but that doesn't change the truth that I am worthy of love and belonging."

Addiction-Free Naturally

Addiction is one of today’s most serious health issues. Modern lifestyles encourage us to consume excessive amounts of caffeine and sugar and to unwind from our stressful lives with tobacco, alcohol, or tranquilizers.

Addiction-Free--Naturally offers gentle but effective ways to ease cravings and nourish the body, as well as information on cleansing the body of accumulated toxins and finding healthy ways to combat depression, anxiety, fatigue, and stress.

Daniel Ladinsky has made it his life's work to create modern, inspired translations of the world's most profound spiritual poetry. Through Ladinsky's translations, Hafiz's voice comes alive across the centuries singing his message of love.

  • The three directives of the spiritual warrior—love with humility, live with reverence, and know with self-discipline
  • Rare descriptions of rituals used by Hale Makua for communing with nature, receiving wisdom from the spirit world, purifying our consciousness, and more
  • The Ancestral Grand Plan—exploring the path our ancestors set in motion millennia ago and how the Plan is playing out across the world today

In the oceanic islands where the flow of primal energies has created unparalleled natural beauty, one of the world's most advanced spiritual cultures remains largely unknown to the West. With The Bowl of Light, Hank Wesselman offers a privileged and intimate view into the mind of an authentic Hawaiian kahuna—for the time has finally come for the world to hear the wisdom that this profound tradition offers.
