Author Corinne Zupko undertook her study of psychology out of necessity when debilitating anxiety threatened to derail her life. Seeking ways to do more than temporarily alleviate her symptoms, Corinne began to study A Course in Miracles (ACIM), mindfulness meditation, and the latest therapeutic approaches for treating anxiety. In From Anxiety to Love, she shares what she learned and gently guides you through the process, helping you undo anxiety-based thinking and fostering mindful shifts in your thoughts and actions. Whether struggling with everyday stress or near-crippling discomfort, you will find that Corinne’s approach offers a new way of healing from — rather than just coping with — fear and anxiety.
On September 11, 2001, Alison Lanza Falls had a great career as a Wall Street banker, a caring and supportive family, and an enormous secret. She was silently and profoundly unhappy. Nine years after watching smoke billow from the World Trade Center where she was heading for a meeting, Alison began an incredible journey of personal transformation, with guidance from David Prudhomme, mind coach and founder of Mederi Wellness.
While chronicling the evolution of her remarkable life, Alison shares her unique experiences and important life lessons using Prudhommes framework, The Best Me NOW!, that guided her through an experiential process on how to choose emotions, let go and feel free, practice forgiveness, release deep-seated fears, love herself and others unconditionally, and accept and embrace her uniqueness. Alisons story reveals simple, practical lessons for anyone interested in improving self-talk, applying universal truths in a professional setting, and preparing the mind for excellence, proving that positive change is not only possible, but also that it follows a specific path of perception, awareness, and choice.
Be Happy NOW! combines two unique voices to share an inspiring story of transformation and life lessons intended to guide others on how to attain authentic happiness and a true understanding of self.
From the Author: "In my book, I share a variety of examples that are real life-related events, and how each negative event created negative brain patterns. Negative experiences can be transformed into positive brain patterns which create a healthier way of living, and open spiritual pathways toward higher consciousness.
It feels great to be in a state of awareness, and consciousness to know where my life is heading. The things that impacted my life that kept me closed up for so many years no longer have a hold on me. It wasn't always that way. I had taken on victim energy, and through my transformation, I learned how to release this energy and regain my power. Overcoming these traumas has opened my heart to sharing information as a healing tool for many other people.
My goal is to reach and transform as many lives as possible to awaken other people to this same level of consciousness, one soul at a time tarting with mine. I am inspired and motivated by the outer realms of my mind that which I see but may not yet be visible to others. I try to stay open at all times to receive new information to deliver to those who are open to new possibilities and want to receive healing for the body-mind-spirit."
We are made up of star stuff! This elegant idea became tangibly real when the liberal clergy author was handed a cottonwood twig with a tiny star hiding inside. Gathering up fists full of these star sticks, and in collaboration with her ‘rocket scientist’ partner, she set out to reframe the human experience within its cosmic context. Here she shows how living in communion with the cosmos can affect the way we live in community, understand ourselves, and connect with the Source of all Becoming. In the addendum, she invites readers to add to the evolving new cosmic narrative of living ‘from ashes to ashes, dust to dust, star stuff to star stuff.’

Using chakras and art is like having a template to achieve balance, forgiveness, and peace. Life is challenging; our world often seems chaotic and tumultuous. Learning to assess and treat your chakra imbalances helps you to cope with these challenges and to find inner peace.
Through the use of true stories, both her own and those of others, Teresa McCallum provides examples of balanced and imbalanced chakras. She offers simple activities, methods, and art suggestions to help others achieve personal growth and inner balance. Teresa's background as a nurse working in mental health, as well as being a visual artist, lead her to develop a unique way of looking at spirituality, self-healing, and use of the ancient chakra system. Regardless of whether the chakra system is new to you or you are an experienced yogini (or yogi), Finding Balance and Forgiveness Through Chakras and Art will provide artistic insight and guidance.
Teresa says, "In creating this book, I surveyed hundreds of people to discover their secrets of success and resilience. I was overwhelmed with the honesty and meaningful responses I received, but until I had fully explored and become engaged in the chakra system, I didn't have a cohesive method to assist people in overcoming their challenges. There are seven chakras, and my seven categories mirrored them perfectly. After exploring and experiencing the energetic transformative power of working with chakras, I realized what the focus of my book would be because art had provided therapy for both me and my patients. So, I was able to unleash my inspired voice which allowed me to complete the book I had conceived many years ago. My personal experiences and the experiences of others have allowed me to create this introduction to healing your chakras by using art therapeutically to find your balance and learn how to let go and forgive."
Part grimoire, part memoir, this quirky, eclectic collection of essays, fables, spells and prayers explores the boundary between the sacred and the mundane, and finds it extraordinarily porous and educational. The Miracle du jour seeks the subtle ways in which a spiritual relationship with nature and the world can touch our lives in miraculous and healing ways. Comprised of shorter pieces with such evocative titles as: Perched: Observations by a 21st Century Gargoyle, The Extraordinary Thing, and Practice Limited to White Magic, The Miracle du Jour will get you thinking and leave you feeling. Feeling like a part of the world rather than apart from it. Feeling a little happier. You may find yourself a little less cynical and a little more hopeful. Although The Miracle du jour is deeply rooted in the mountains of the American Southwest, its inspiration and insight are crafted in such a way as to travel the wider world.
What if life could be different? What if, no matter how bad or good life seems, there were a way to make it better? We often think changing the outside world will “fix it,” but it never does, not for long anyway. Instead, you must change your inner experience and by doing so, change your world. Throughout time religion has claimed to provide happiness, meaning, peace and so much more, but what if church doesn’t work for you? Is there a way to explore what spirituality has to offer without church?
Life wasn’t working for Ben Jamison. Church didn’t work either, but the inner pull toward a spiritually focused life could no longer be ignored. Following that intuitive impulse, Ben has spent over a decade studying and applying the principles and practices of spirituality and spiritual psychology to completely reshape his life to one filled with possibility!
Through this book, you will learn new and more accessible definitions of religious ideas as they are redefined in the spiritual context. You’ll learn how to easily begin using nine spiritual tools that will serve you for a lifetime. You’ll be empowered to direct your inner experience and watch the outer world shift in response. If you’re looking to improve your life, curious about spirituality, or seeking a deeper meaning to the life you already enjoy, Church-Free Spirituality may be just what you’ve been looking for.

After suffering a blow to the head that robs her of herself, the aptly named Faith struggles against almost insurmountable odds to reclaim herself and her life as she knew it.
First, a disclaimer: although the protagonist in this novel suffers an injury, Lost is not a medical or health book. Rather, it is a testimony to the resilience of the human spirit that can rise like the proverbial phoenix after suffering a nearly lethal trauma. Faith is a character who finds herself in a situation that will be identifiable to many readers. Who hasn't known someone who has suffered a concussion or worse? To find oneself lost in the labyrinth of the mind because the brain has been injured is taking the hero's journey to a new and challenging level. The hero's journey resonates in all our psyches and that is why stories like The Wizard of Oz or Star Wars grab at us on a visceral level. Faith's "Call to Adventure" is a car accident. She doesn't have the choice of refusal; instead, she is sucked into a new and scary world when life as she knows it disappears. She finds mentors, is tested, and ultimately fights her way back not to her old self, but evolves into someone who has gained knowledge and is better for it. To come to know Faith is to become her cheerleader. Readers will keep reading not only because the writing is compelling but because they want her to succeed. On some level, her successes will be their successes no matter what different and challenging paths their own lives follow. Just like Faith, we all deal with the trials and tribulations life tosses our way, and we are usually better for the experiences. Faith is every woman.

CANCER: with often abrupt and unwelcome entry into human lives as well as profound multi-dimensional impact, such an illness is, for many, considered to be a ruthless thief, intent on stealing not only joy, but life itself. Of course, even as cancer attempts to steal life and captivate those under its hold, lest we forget that as powerful an adversary as it may seem, it is no contestant against the power of the One who “has come to set the captives free” (Luke 4:18) and who is Life itself (John 14:6) and its Source.
Cross of a Different Kind: Cancer & Christian Spirituality draws upon the richness of Christian spiritual theology with the aim of rejuvenating hope within and imparting eternal Truth to all persons who have been “touched” by cancer in any of its wicked forms. Divided into three parts addressing those who have lost loved ones to cancer; those currently confronting their diagnoses; and survivors, this book serves as both a “spiritual field-guide” as well as an informative, yet practical helpmate to ensure all facing such adversities that they are never alone in their journey.

Often spoken at the end of a prayer, a well-known Sioux phrase affirms that “we are all related.” Similarly, the Sioux medicine man, Brave Buffalo, came to realize when he was still a boy that “the maker of all was Wakan Tanka (the Great Spirit), and . . . in order to honor him I must honor his works in nature.” The interconnectedness of all things, and the respect all things are due, are among the most prominent—and most welcome—themes in this collection of Indian voices on nature.
Within the book are carefully authenticated quotations from men and women of nearly fifty North American tribes. The illustrations include historical photographs of American Indians, as well as a wide selection of contemporary photographs showing the diversity of the North American natural world. Together, these quotations and photographs beautifully present something of nature's timeless message.
