God evolves implies that he began
in an immature state and then grew
into fullness, when every faith
holds that God is infinite to begin

human understanding.” By capturing the lives of ten historical prophets, saints, mystics and martyrs who
are touched by a divine power,
Chopra reveals a riveting portrait of
a constantly changing God. Our

brings to life the defining moments

about the true nature of God.

The Top Five Regrets of the Dying

Bronnie Ware

This might seem
like an odd book to

it is one of those
titles
that
has
grown in popularity by word of mouth: what began
as an Internet blog has become a
deeply inspiring book on how to
live our lives now, while we still
have the time. Interweaving her
own memoir with the stories of the
people she cared for as a palliative
carer, Bronnie Ware introduces the
top five regrets of the dying. By
applying the lessons of those nearing death to her own life, she discovered the essence of living simply in the present. “In the end,
what matters to people is how
much happiness they have brought
to those they love and how much
time they spent doing things they
themselves loved.” This courageous, life-affirming book will
leave you feeling more compassionate and inspired to live the life
you are truly here to live.

Knowing, Being explores the profound truth behind
all the world’s mystic traditions.
This intelligent book is divided
into two halves: “The Exile” and
“The Return”. The chapters in the
first half explore how we come to
forget what is real, and experience
life as if in exile from our true being. The second half of the book
begins with a look at the yearning
that arises from suffering and
transforms us into seekers, and
examines the range of paths that
seekers explore on their quest for
spiritual truth. The final chapters
look into the universal aspects of
spiritual transformation: insight,
awakening, selflessness, freedom
and finally, homecoming. “On the
mystical journey ... what is never

Richard
Webster,
has written on just
about every subject
relating to the psychic world, and
now turns his attention to the soul - “the spiritual and
eternal part of each of us”. In his
friendly and accessible manner,
Webster explores beliefs and customs regarding the soul, past lives,
and reincarnation in cultures all
over the world. You will read true
accounts of near-death experiences, past-life memories, and encounters with soul mates. Living
in Your Soul’s Light also examines
the Seven Rays - powerful universal energies that have a profound
effect on the soul. Webster provides quizzes and exercises to determine which ray you are using
most, and the life purpose you are
here to fulfil.
Robert Moss is the
creator of “Active
Dreaming”, an original synthesis of
mo de rn
dr ea mwork and shamanism that he teaches
all over the world. “The shaman is
a spiritual practitioner who has
mastered the art of journeying beyond the body to communicate
with the spirits, to guide the souls
of both the living and the departed,
and to bring them healing ... First
and last, the shaman is a dreamer.”
The greatest contribution of the ancient shamans to modern healing is
the understanding that in the
course of any life we are liable to
suffer soul loss - the loss of parts of
our vital energy and identity - and
that in order to be whole and well,
we must find the means of soul recovery. Moss teaches us that our

simple breathing techniques drawn
from yoga, Buddhist meditation,
the Chinese practice of qigong, Orthodox Christian monks, and other
sources. These methods have been
scientifically shown to be effective
in alleviating specific stress and
mood challenges, by activating
communication pathways between
the mind and the body. “The daily
use of breath practices can turn
back the tide of stress, counteract
disease progression, and improve
overall quality of life.” The accompanying CD guides you through
the techniques, and helps make
these breathing practices an ongoing part of daily life.

DVD REVIEWS - DECEMBER 2012
Two recent documentaries deal
with issues surrounding diets and
the consumption of food and their
implications for us as individuals
and as a society.
Hungry for Change
(DVD $29.95) looks
at the prevalence of
dieti ng
to
los e
weight in the face of
a glut of nutritionally
low food availability. The film
looks at the nature of addiction
too, and the phenomenon of consuming food as a product rather
than for nutritional sustenance.
Forks Over Knives
(DVD $29.95) looks
at the consumption
of
an im al- ba se d
meals and processed
food. Augmented by
research statistics, it offers solutions to our widespread dependence on these unsustainable dietary habits. Together, these films
offer a damning indictment on our
overfed and undernourished diets – and a way to empower ourselves to change. Remembering,
one small change by many creates
a big change.

Sound Of The Soul:
The Fez Festival of World Sacred Music
Stephen Olsson (Director)
DVD & CD $39.95
This is by no means a new film, having been released in
2005, but its discovery by yours truly has prompted me
to share its existence with you. An ancient walled city,
Fez was founded in the 9 th century by the Sufi saint
Idris Muhummad. The Fez Festival of Sacred Music is
an annual event that has been in existence since 1994. It gathers musicians of all faiths to celebrate their spirituality through the medium of
music. Gnawa, gospel, Irish, Russian, Portuguese fado - all these traditions and more unite in the spirit of sharing for one week. The first disc
covers discussions of spirituality, in particular Sufism, and the place of
spirituality in a modern secular world. The second disc in the set contains performances of the artists from the chosen year’s festival. This is a
great discovery!
Finding Joe
Patrick Takaya Solomon
DVD $24.95
Joseph Campbell observed that many diverse cultures
share the idea of a heroic journey whereby an
‘ordinary’ person is transformed into a seer. This archetypal mythic journey entails many extraordinary
and fantastic encounters and trials. The protagonist
returns transformed, imbued with powers and knowledge that is used to change and improve the lives of her or his people.
Finding Joe looks at how this myth is relevant in our modern society and
as always, enables us to envision an external struggle using mythical language as a metaphor for our own personal journey.
Tales of Everyday Magic Series
Michael Goorjian (Director)
DVD $19.95 (each)
Tales of Everyday Magic is a new series of four DVDs
featuring stories inspired by the teachings of some of
the ‘New-Age’ movement’s most popular teachers.
All of the films in the series feature interviews with
the teachers who wrote or inspired the movie, along
with a raft of extra features. My Greatest Teacher is
based on the life of Dr Wayne W. Dyer, and explores themes of forgiveness and its power to transform our lives. Inspired by the writings of
Louise L. Hay, Painting the Future tells of a relationship between two
neighbours, and the power of our thoughts to be both our friends and
our enemies. In The Magic Hand of Chance, director Michael Goorjian
once more looks at the part our thoughts play in shaping our reality. Set in Vienna, Austria, this film is
based on the teachings of Dr Wayne W. Dyer and
Louise L. Hay. Finally, and possibly the most esoteric
of the series, is the Gregg Braden inspired Entanglement. In this film, an art student has a bad premonition
about his brother, a serving US Marine in Afghanistan,
and taps into the Divine Matrix to help avoid disaster.

Everyday Enlightenment is an inspirational guide to
finding happiness
by taking in the
beauty right in

His Hol ine ss the Gya lwa ng
Drukpa is the spiritual head of the
Drukpa School of Buddhism, and
his core philosophy is to convert
compassion into action, and to help
others find concrete solutions to
today’s personal and global problems. Using a delightful, warm
tone, His Holiness brings ancient
wisdom into the modern world,
teaching through stories and example. He shows you how to let go of
your ego and stress, turn anger
into compassion, and transform
your fears into courage. “Because
everything in this life is connected what matters is how we see and appreciate those connections, how we
cherish them.”

“We suffer from the
most insidious kind
of addiction - one
we don’t even realize we have. It is

Anonymous). Central to both dispage

ciplines is the recognition that our
powerlessness is the secret to
genuine strength. The melding of
the two teachings presents practical areas to reflect on, and potent
anecdotes that help to reveal the
radical proposition that “whilst
complete personal powerlessness
may seem counterintuitive and ultimately ridiculous”, it is actually a
gateway to peace. Liquorman’s
loving heart acknowledges the suffering of our human condition and
nurtures the possibility for another
way of being.
Dreaming Yourself Awake
Lucid Dreaming and Tibetan Dream
Yoga for Insight and Transformation
B. Alan Wallace
PB $28.95
Some of the greatest of life’s adventures can happen
while you’re sound

techniques that anyone can learn in
order to become a lucid dreamer.
He shows how lucid dreaming can
be used to heighten creativity, to
solve problems, and to increase
self-knowledge. Dreaming Yourself
Awake then moves on to the methods of Tibetan Buddhist Dream
Yoga, comprising “a set of advanced spiritual practices that act
as a powerful aid to awakening
from samsara.” This is a book for
the serious practiti oner who
wishes to awaken from delusion.

what isn’t (our ideas
of reality). Written
by two Australian experts with
many years of personal and clinical
experience, Mindfulness for Life is
designed to be your complete
guide to living a more mindful life.
McKenzie and Hassed present succinct and useful information about

The Channel’s Companion
A Guide for Connecting
with the Higher Realms
Amanda Guggenheimer PB $19.95
“Every person has
the ability to receive
channelled
information; that is,
with full awareness
to establish communication
with
the higher realms.” One of our favourite authors, Amanda Guggenheimer returns with a “part two”
to her best-selling book, The LightWorker’s Companion. The Channel’s
Companion offers instructions for
connecting with the higher realms
and one’s spiritual family. “This
book focuses primarily on receiving direct communication from
higher beings such as angels or
enlightened masters and less on
messages from people who have
passed over, for this is the role of a
medium.” Guggenheimer provides
important information, exercises,
techniques and meditations to develop your own connection in a
gentle, safe and loving way.

Barbara Moore
Illustrated by Aly Fell
Book & Deck $39.95
Steampunk style seems to have become popular recently, and this new tarot deck draws
directly from it. Based on the idea of steam
machinery set against a post-apocalyptic or
fantasy future, the imaginative illustrations
here depict a scintillating fusion of man and
machine, nature and technology, science and
alchemy, romance and fashion. Created by
expert tarot reader Barbara Moore, The Steampunk Tarot offers a glimpse of the future
through a lens to the past. The deck remains true and close to the Rider
Waite tradition, and the included 300-page manual offers tips, original
spreads and guidance in card interpretation. “Go where the past and future converge, into a world of roaring engines and gleaming metal, top
hats and corseted silk gowns. … where alternate histories play out in a
film reel of fantasy, adventure, and magic."

How to Face the Mess We’re In
Without Going Crazy
Joanna Macy & Chris Johnstone
PB $25.00
Ecophilosopher Joanna Macy, is a
scholar of Buddhism,
general systems theory and deep ecology. Together with
Dr. Chris Johnstone,

with resilience and creative power.
At the heart of this book is the idea
that when our responses are guided
by the intention to act for the healing of our world, the mess we’re in
not only becomes easier to face, but
our lives also become more meaningful and satisfying.

Mermaids 101
Exploring the Magical Underwater
World of the Merpeople
Doreen Virtue
HC $19.95
Just as our ancestors
and indigenous peoples knew, when animals come to you in
an unusual or repeated way, whether
in physical or symbolic form, they
are serving as spirit guides attempting to get a message to you.
This convenient mini A-Z version
of Animal Spirit Guides by Dr. Steven Farmer, (designed to fit in a
big pocket), will help you understand and discern these messages
whenever this occurs by offering
several possible interpretations for
the animal you encounter. “Due to
the dramatic changes that are taking place on Earth and in human
consciousness, we need as much
help from Spirit as possible …
Amongst the many means of divination available, animal spirit
guides afford us one that’s among
the most accessible and accurate.”
Mermaids are powerful and graceful inhabitants of the waters who can teach us
about our connection
to the star system Sirius, the whales and dolphins, and
the future of our planet. In this latest “101” book from Doreen Virtue,
she provides a fascinating history
of mermaids and mermen from Atlantis and beyond. You’ll read
about people’s reported experiences with mermaids, and learn
about the Merperson Earth Angel
realm. You’ll also see images of
ancient and modern mermaids, including photos and descriptions of
people who wear neoprene mermaid tails, and swim alongside
whales, dolphins and other aquatic
life. “Although mermaids are considered beautiful fantasy images,
you may decide that they’re something more.”
