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."

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.
How to leave your baggage and pain to become a happy, whole, perfect human being with unlimited potential.
Meg Blackburn Losey, PhD -
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."

Psychologists have devised tests to determine whether people can detect lies. The tests are given to policemen, customs officers, trial lawyers and a whole bunch of other professionals who should have a knack for spotting deception. On average they score bang on fifty per cent. No better than chance.
But sometimes, every now and then, someone scores off the charts.
What is it they see that we miss?
What more is there to see that they miss?
Ever wished you could read someone’s mind?
Ever wished you could alter someone's mind?
Be careful what you wish for...

How One Woman Radically Simplified Her LIfe and How You Can Too
Once, Tammy Strobel and her husband were living a normal middle-class lifestyle: driving two cars, commuting long distances, and living well beyond their means. Now they are living the voluntary downsizing — or smart-sizing — dream. In this book Strobel combines research on well-being with numerous real-world examples to offer practical inspiration.
Her fresh take on our things, our work, and our relationships spells out micro-actions that anyone can take to step into a life that’s more conscious and connected, sustainable and sustaining, heartfelt and happy.
About the Author:

Transformational leadership books and processes have delivered us to the era of self-mastery. But how do we move from being effective leaders to being awakened leaders? By situating leadership in the nest of the seeker's journey toward truth, you can now stand on the shoulders of the visionaries who have come before, and become conscious of your own position within Source.
Leaving behind charts, maps, and graphs, Awakened Leadership is a portal to direct experience via pointers and personal stories that will help you recognize the gift of being who you really are. Then your leadership essence will effortlessly manifest not only in the boardroom, but in all facets of your life.
Modern life is full of problems - in individuals and in society too. Increasingly we see damaged and disturbed children, mental health problems, addictions of many kinds, antisocial behavior, and crime, violence and war.
So it seems sensible to ask: does life have to be this way? Was it always like this for human beings? We’ve been around for maybe as much as two million years: surely we didn’t evolve to live such difficult and dysfunctional lives?
Do We Need To Be So Screwed-Up?! sets out to discover the answer to this question – and finds plentiful evidence to show that, on the contrary, human beings evolved to be naturally egalitarian, cooperative, and peaceful. Indeed, for over 95% of our history – until about 10,000 years ago - that is how we were: kind, cheerful and happy! This is a paradigm-busting re-evaluation of human nature and our potential for happiness.

Beyond the Page to Spiritual Practice
Push your writing through the trite and the boring to something fresh, something transformative.
If it is true for you that sticks and stones can break my bones, but words can never hurt me, then your words are soft, weak and ineffective. Words can hurt; words can shatter; words can strip you naked, forcing you to see the truth no matter how precious the lies.
This is the kind of word craft that awardwinning author and renowned spirituality teacher Rami Shapiro promotes in this fresh and unapologetic guide to writing as a spiritual practice. It isn t about writing spiritual books or about the romance of writing. It doesn t cover the ins and outs of publishing and building a brand. Rather, it explores the bedrock of spiritual awakening and how writing can shatter you upon it. Along with award-winning writer and writing coach Aaron Shapiro, he approaches writing the way a spiritual seeker uses meditation and chant to shift from narrow mind to spacious mind and see through the distorting lens of the self-centered self to the larger reality that includes and transcends it.
