Despite being located on the extreme eastern boundary of Europe, and having been frequently conquered by invading people from Asia, including Arabs, Turks, Persians, Mongols, and more recently Russians, Georgians still regard themselves very much as Europeans and it is to becoming a future member state of the EU that the majority of the people now aspire.
As for the traditional folk-tales from the region, one of their main characteristics is that they are packed with action: Whilst a written, “literary” novel or short story might devote paragraphs to descriptions of people or places, these tales usually settle for an adjective or two; “a thick impassable forest”, “a handsome stately man”, or a formula such as“not-seen-beneath-the-sun beauty”.
My Journey from Cancer to Near Death, to True Healing
Forward by Wayne Dyer
In this truly inspirational memoir, Anita Moorjani relates how, after fighting cancer for almost four years, her body—overwhelmed by the malignant cells spreading throughout her system—began shutting down. As her organs failed, she entered into an extraordinary near-death experience where she realized her inherent worth . . . and the actual cause of her disease. Upon regaining consciousness, Anita found that her condition had improved so rapidly that she was able to be released from the hospital within weeks . . . without a trace of cancer in her body!
Within these pages, Anita recounts stories of her childhood in Hong Kong, her challenge to establish her career and find true love, as well as how she eventually ended up in that hospital bed where she defied all medical knowledge.
As part of a traditional Hindu family residing in a largely Chinese and British society, she had been pushed and pulled by cultural and religious customs since she had been a little girl. After years of struggling to forge her own path while trying to meet everyone else’s expectations, she had the realization, as a result of her epiphany on the other side, that she had the power to heal herself . . . and that there are miracles in the Universe that she had never even imagined.

An interview with best-selling inner life author Guy Finley and psychologist Dr. Ellen Dickstein
ED Guy, it seems like there are a lot of paradoxes in the spiritual life, but I think a lot of this spiritual confusion exists because we don't yet see the bigger picture. One of them that you write about quite frequently is that we can learn to use inner storms, negative psychological states -- things like anger, depression, fear -- to find a whole new kind of peace. Unfortunately when we're in one of those negative states, that doesn't seem possible. So how can we use these states to find the peace that we want?
My Divine Self is an inspirational story that will strike a chord with anyone who reads it. It holds the key to awaken your heart and mind to a new way of thinking. Martha in an opening letter reveals to you she has spiritual insights that could help you overcome life's challenges. Those moments in life when you feel like you are sinking in quicksand. She asks that you remain open minded and pass on these spiritual insights to help others. Martha then transports you to a moment in time when she was plummeting to the depths of despair. She hears a voice that tells her to get a grip. She is baffled. Why didn't that same voice stop her from making all those bad decisions? and where is it coming from? A dialog develops and Martha starts to get answers to questions that need answering. Hold Martha's hand as you journey through the pages and like her, you will feel like a phoenix rising from the ashes of your former self. This book could transform your life. Are you ready?
Death in Folk Tradition
A Bridge to the Other Side is a collection of articles and traditional folk tales that deal with our feelings about and attitudes towards Death, both our own death and that of those nearest and dearest to us.
A bridge between earth and heaven, this world and the next, features in the mythology of many different peoples. For example, in Norse legends, Bifröst or Bilröst is a burning rainbow bridge between Midgard, the world, and Asgard, the realm of the gods. The bridge is known as Bilröst in the Poetic Edda; compiled in the 13th century from earlier traditional sources, and as Bifröst in the Prose Edda; written in the 13th century by Snorri Stureuson. Both the Poetic Edda and the Prose Edda alternately refer to the bridge as Asbrú (Old Norse Æsirs means bridge).

A practical book on meditation and enlightenment, a must read for any spiritual seeker. A more poetic Eckhart Tolle; Kahlil Gibran meets Krishnamurti. Ilie Cioaras message is original and unique, as he never travelled to India and never belonged to any traditional school. By practicing the silence of the mind, through an all-encompassing attention, we discover and fulfill our innermost potential of becoming one with the divine spark that lies dormant within us.
"Having studied Ilie Cioaras inspired book, I am quite convinced that if its wonderfully wise contents are read diligently, and its prescribed practise is persistenly followed, then it will gradually and gracefully lead the fortunate reader to his or her own Self Realisation." Alan Jacobs, Poet and President of the Ramana Maharshi Foundation UK
