Healing with Aromatic, Bitter, and Tonic Plants
Restoring the use of wild plants in daily life for vibrant physical, mental, and spiritual health
• Explains how 3 classes of wild plants--aromatics, bitters, and tonics--are uniquely adapted to work with our physiology because we coevolved with them
• Provides simple recipes to easily integrate these plants into meals as well as formulas for teas, spirits, and tinctures
• Offers practical examples of plants in each of the 3 classes, from aromatic peppermint to bitter dandelion to tonic chocolate
As people moved into cities and suburbs and embraced modern medicine and industrialized food, they lost their connection to nature, in particular to the plants with which humanity coevolved. These plants are essential components of our physiologies--tangible reminders of cross-kingdom signaling--and key not only to vibrant physical health and prevention of illness but also to soothing and awakening the troubled spirit.

An Energetic Embodiment of Divine Grace
New Reiki Software for Divine Living examines Reiki, the world's most popular form of energy healing as a type of spiritual technology which can be upgraded to impact every area of our lives. This book interprets Reiki as an energetic embodiment of Divine grace, something designed to not only heal but also uplift, inspire and bring us into alignment with our Divine purpose. Offering an entirely new upgrade to Reiki technology called Mikao Usui s Reiki Crystal of Awakening, the book shows us ways that Reiki can be simplified so anyone can use it, without the complex symbols or long sequences of hand positions that are part of traditional Reiki training.
Patterns of Relating Among Family and Friends
In this new revised edition of her acclaimed Planetary Threads Lynn Bell includes a new introductory chapter, setting out an approach to family themes in the individual chart. Her innovative exploration of the patterns of thinking, feeling, and behavior which run back through generations is enhanced by her unique adaptation of the genogram (a map utilized in family therapy) highlighting particular planetary placements and aspects that recur in families.
Her often dramatic case material, presented in fascinating detail, is rich and revealing, and we are gradually offered a profound vision of the intricately woven tapestry of the family matrix from which we spring, and the ways in which we repeat - or transform - the astrological and psychological inheritance which each of us carries.
About the Author
Lynn Bell is a consulting astrologer in Paris, France, and teaches at the Centre for Psychological Astrology in London and at the Caroline Myss Education Institute. An astrologer since 1974, Bell is the author of three books, and is much sought after as a speaker and teacher of astrology.
Untangling family interconnected issues in a horoscope is a long and complicated task. Lynn Bell has created a text that makes it easier and more understandable for the astrologer. This is not a lay-person's astrology book. It is for serious astrologers. I've been using astrology both personally and professionally since I was twelve years old and learned a "thing or two" from Lynn's well-written and fascinating book. I'm sure I will use what I've learned in my astrology work from now on.

The loving words of Oneness, woven throughout, convey a deep sense of the sacred. And the simple act of reading becomes a life changing Divine encounter that each reader shares on an intimate, personal level.
Rich with Divine insight, A Journey to Oneness gives us a vibrant new vision of the nature of humanness and an in-depth guide to discovering the Divinity within. Here, in one woman's unforgettable spiritual adventure, is the key to the actual experience of Oneness--the God within us all."
There is a change underway, a Shift that is not only altering our consciousness, it is affecting every aspect of life on the planet; our political, social and economic structures, the environment, the weather, every institution, all the wars, how we view our relationships, our work, every thought we think, and every feeling we feel. In simple terms, the old habits of thinking, feeling, and behaving that we know as the third dimension are going away. We are all shifting into a fourth, and then into a fifth dimensional consciousness and experience.
A Way to Make Peace with my Shadow
Theo Grutter is a man who has spent five thousand days and nights fishing the open ocean alone. He has had a good deal of time to ponder Life's mysteries and to organize (and reorganize) his thinking. He is a modern-day Walt Whitman singing his song of Self, or John Muir intimately describing the process of reservation and renewal with a sense of wonder at the infinity in the natural world.
At the heart of it, Theo Grutter is a scavenging explorer of philosophy, science, history, spirituality, and nature, madly picking up wisdom, feeling vibrations, and following hunches. He invites fellow explorers to open their hearts and their minds to listen to the voices on the winds and from the seas, even the flora and the fauna, the parasites and the microbes; he promises to navigate the "smoothest tags the water allows."
