What do we turn to for both everyday sustenance and seasonal celebration? Food. Often, though, we’re like the hungry ghosts of Taoist lore, eating mindlessly, wandering aimlessly, and wanting more — more than food itself can provide. Ellen Kanner believes that if we put in a little thought and preparation, every meal can feed not only our bodies but our souls and our communities as well. Warm, wicked, and one-of-a-kind, Ellen offers an irreverent approach to bringing reverence into daily living — and eating. She presents global vegan recipes that call you to the table, stories that make you stand up and cheer, and gentle nudges that aim to serve up what we’re hungry for: a more vital self, more loving and meaningful connections, a nourished and nourishing world, and great food, too. Feeding the Hungry Ghost will challenge you to decide: keep reading or start cooking?

Author of Margo--
This book offers 365 days of inspired thoughts gained while sitting on my front porch or in my humble sanctuary?and, even sometimes, from under the umbrella of my favorite sidewalk cafe. At age 76, I have been privileged to lead many lives and taken numerous spiritual paths. I am not one to put a name to my beliefs; I simply sit and open up to the Universe, waiting in silence to gain insights and ideas. Like the Dalai Lama, I merely want to come from love. Is there another place from which any of us can truly emerge? I think not.
For you, my readers, I want this book to be a daily sample of spiritual nectar. I ask that you sip from this bound bird feeder like the red-throated hummingbirds do from the glass feeder on my front porch.
When referring to God, I often call Him/Her by different names. I love thinking of God as the Beloved, but at other times I might picture Him as the Divine, or maybe, Her, as Infinite Love. I also refer to God in both the masculine and feminine gender. I remember, as a child, we had a minister in our church who always ended the service with this benediction, "May the Mother love of the Father God go with you." Isn't that beautiful? Where my naming of God does not resonate with you, please substitute your own name for Him/Her?one that better suits your own spiritual path.

Animal Wisdom to Empower Heal and Inspire
Madeleine Walker, Illustrations by Richard Crookes
This divination card deck brings inspiration in tune with the rhythms of nature and the planet from the animal kingdom. Personally gleaned and intuited by Madeleine Walker as she traveled far and wide to meet and communicate with both wild species and domestic animals, these missives “whisper” the animals’ tidings of love and compassion and dispatch their greatest wish—for humanity to find re-empowerment so people can finally integrate into interspecies unification. Daily usage of different animal cards enables access to profound messages that pinpoint current, troublesome life situations and foster renewed self-belief and release of self-doubt. Reproductions of the 44 lavishly illustrated cards and expanded interpretations contained in the companion booklet further enhance the experience.

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.

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.
