. . . in five hours, not five years
Anthony Dugdale -
Love him or hate him, we are all intrigued by Sigmund Freud. His brainchild, psychoanalysis, is expensive and time-consuming, but readers of this indispensable alternative can save a fortune over conventional analysis. Discover through 28 cheat-proof questionnaires how to analyse your dreams, measure the strength of your ego, and decide whether you have an oral or anal personality, an Oedipus or Electra complex. Find out why some people become gynecologists and others executioners; why Freudians think ballet dancers and those who watch them are perverts, except in name; why people campaign to save the whale, dye their hair, enjoy hurting themselves, shift blame onto other people, choose unexpected partners, become vegetarians, wear flashy ties, suck their thumb, choose bread-making as a hobby, or believe in magic. If you’ve ever reflected on the influence of your childhood, wondered what your dreams might mean, or are on a quest for self-knowledge, lie down on the couch in the pages of Your Freudian Psychoanalysis . . .in five hours, not five years and you will emerge with a whole new understanding of yourself.
Animism, Mind, and the Self in Nature
Emma Restall Orr -
Over the past few hundred years, animism has been dismissed as a primitive, naive and irrational perspective, irrelevant within the civilised West. In The Wakeful World, Emma Restall Orr argues that this is based on the misrepresentation, drawn in crayon, that each tree and stone has its own Christian-like immortal soul. Taking the reader on a philosophical adventure, Restall Orr explores the heritage of Western thought with precision, enthusiasm and sensitivity, considering how soul, spirit, mind and consciousness have been understood through millennia. Challenging the prevailing worldviews of materialism and dualism, she presents animism as a radically different, yet mature and coherent philosophy. Providing deep green ethics with a wholly rational metaphysical foundation, The Wakeful World is a compelling view of the nature of existence and the experience of reality, giving solid ground for the now necessary journey to a sustainable world.

Finding our Place in our Own History
Ancestors are part of our shared humanity, we all have them. Ancestry in the guise of race, has been used as a tool to divide. Even so, it might yet help us move in greater harmony.

Druidry and the Ancestors will take you on a journey into how you imagine yourself, and how you can take control of your identity and future.

Master healer and metaphysical teacher Meg Losey experienced her own life crisis in which she lost everything--her house, her business, and her relationship and was forced to learn how to accept this devastating situation.
In The Art of Living Out Loud, Losey describes how she learned to live an authentic life, from this traumatic experience. She guides readers through the process of coming clean with ourselves, accepting who we are, discovering our purpose and developing the courage to embody it.
Losey shows how to find one's power from the inside out, dropping pretenses and perceptions of control, shedding fears, and embracing who we are. We can literally create a perfect life right here on earth. "I learned that creating the kind of experience that I wanted in life was as easy as believing it, and that worrying was nothing more than fear of 'what ifs' that didn't even exist."
