Energy Healing

Light Emerging

The Journey of Personal Healing

Barbara Ann Brennan


Add a review

Light Emerging is a continuation and development of Hands of Light, with the focus shifted from that of general principles and practices of energetic healing to the energetics of personal healing, what we can do for ourselves. Because Brennan's experience has led her to the observation that there is nothing that impacts our health so much as our relationship, Light Emerging is directed not simply at healing ourselves, but at healing our relationships. The illustrations of the energetic appearance of varieties of healthy and unhealthy relationships, and their impact on personal health on both sides speak more directly than any stack of psychology books. Seeing is both believing and empowering. I recommend Brennan's work without reservation and with tremendous enthusiasm.

Clear the Clutter

Make Space for Your Life

Inge van der Ploeg



Add a review

This is the most unified course on clearing clutter that I have seen - and the only one that creates a setting for conscious self-development as you go. I strongly recommend reading it and working with it -- the outcomes are like a fresh spring breeze!

Inge van der Ploeg is a master at creating space in ways that enable human beings to really live. She has worked with clients both public and private for many years in Holland, and both her experience and her study have deepened her own awareness of the significance of how we arrange our surroundings.

There are several things that make her book a unique and powerful contribution to what I will loosely call the burgeoning field of clutter clearing.

First, she has incorporated, considered and really understood many other authors on the subject, including Karen Kingston who I consider to be among the most valuable.

She has also studied what Rudolf Steiner had to say about the nature of the human being and brings this to bear when discussing how we create our surroundings out of ourselves and how our surroundings can impact our physical, mental and emotional health.

Finally, she has devised a unique set of exercises designed to awaken us and strengthen our capacity to take action in our own homes and offices.

Very highly recommended!


Clearing the Junk: A Buddhist Perspective




Add a review

Do you find yourself overwhelmed by junk? Is your house full of stuff you don't know what to do with? Do you eat too much unhealthy food? Are you involved in destructive relationships? Do you find yourself surrounded by trivialities or engaged in meaningless conversation? Do you feel there's little of value in your life?

If the answer to any of these questions is "yes," then you'll want to read Authenticity. Clearly and compassionately, Ven. Yifa explores junk in all its ramifications: junk food, junk stuff, junk relationships, junk communication, and junk thoughts and feelings. She shows how our obsession with materialism, convenience, and the fast-paced nature of our society is diminishing our ability to connect wholeheartedly with others and making it harder for us to lead authentic lives. Through consciously separating out what is junk from what is genuine, she says, and through practicing right-mindedness, we can gain equanimity, clarity of purpose, true friendship, and the ultimate realization of our Buddha-nature.
