Hope is in the Garden introduces an alternative healing method known as Sunan therapy.
This method is very different from traditional analytical or behavioral therapy. It even
differs from other, better known nontraditional approaches. Why? Sunan therapy is more
This book explains how and why Sunan therapy is more complete, using actual case histories.
Even more important, Hope focuses on the exciting insights into changing and healing personal and
collective reality that the Sunan method teaches us. These insights include:
Healing resolution doesn't have to take as long as most of us believe, and it
doesn't have to be as painful or as much of a struggle as most of us fear. Healing self actually
helps the outer world because all of us are connected spiritually and emotionally through the
equality of matter, energy, unconditional love and consciousness, otherwise stated as E=mc2.

In my opinion, this book plays an important role in bridging the gap between a psychology
based on a mental and biochemical model of the mind and a psychology that is based on
spirituality and experience. Dr. Taylor sees new areas of research into human consciousness
opening up that take us into the domain of the spirit and spiritual healing.
Indeed, as he successfuly illustrates in this book, all healing is spiritual.
This book discusses the relationships between consciousness and healing, the meaning of
suffering, types of healing, the role of belief, healing personalities, and resolving our
issues of death. This book offers a glimpse of how our understanding of healing is evolving
as we move into the twenty-first century. We see an integration of eastern and western thought
into a holistic prescription for recovery and renewal.
In this book, Saki Santorelli, director of the nationally acclaimed Stress Reduction Clinic,
explores the ancient roots of medicine, and shows us how to introduce mindfulness into the
crucible of the healing relationship, so that both patients and caregivers begin to acknowledge
that we are all wounded and we are all whole. His approach revitalizes the dynamics of the
patient/practitioner relationship. In describing the classes at the clinic and the transformation
that takes plce in this alchemical process, he offers insights and effective methods for
cultivating mindfulness in our everyday lives. As he reveals the inner landscape of his own life
as a health care professional and we join him and those with whom he works on this journey of
human suffering and courage, we become aware of and honor what is darkest and brightest
within each one of us.
Healing the Aura
This book offers an in depth study of the human energy field - the aura - to professionals
as well as to those who just want to know more about the forces and energies that permeate
and surround our physical bodies. The aura is shown to be the place where the most profound
and powerful human interactions take place. It is the precursor and healer of physiological,
emotional, mental, and spiritual imbalances and diseases.
Hands of Light offers new paradigms for health, relationships, and disease. We are
given an understanding of how the aura looks, functions, becomes disturbed, is healed, and
interacts with other people. We are given guidance in seeing and interpreting auras. Medically
verified case studies of people with various conditions are presented. And finally, the author's
personal story gives us a model for growth, courage, and possibilities for expanding our own
Although this book was first published in 1927, today it remains a classic in its field.
C.W. Leadbeater was a noted clairvoyant associated for many years with the Theosophical
Society. This is the best known of his many books that he wrote on spiritual and metaphysical
The Chakras Introduces the Theosophical concept of the etheric, an envelope of physical
but invisible matter completely surrounding the visible physical body. This etheric matter consists
of many layers. The chakras are energy vortices that connect the layers of the etheric and the
physical. Leadbeater describes what a chakra is and what it does. He describes each of the seven
major chakras aligned along the brain and spinal column. He discusses the flow of energy from one
chakra to another and talks about Kundalini energy. Finally, the Hindu concept of chakras is
discussed. This is a very good book to use as a reference. Several very good color illustrations
One of the first things I did when I got serious about the study of
herbal medicine was to buy a number of reference books on the subject.
This book caught my attention with its large number of pages that dealt
with remedies for specific ailments. This is the level of herbal medicine
that was easiest for me to understand at the time. As a novice, this book
had more than enough information for the simple evaluations and treatments
that I was then attempting.
This book is a very good general introduction to herbal medicine. Topics
include the preparation of herbal remedies, the treatment of various
ailments of the body, women's health, men's health, children's health,
putting together an herbal first-aid kit, caveats and considerations,
aromatherapy, skin and hair care, and cooking for health. This is a broad
introduction to the medicinal use of herbs that even a beginner can
understand and appreciate.
This is another book that I bought when I was first starting to learn
about the use of herbs. I found the section on the actions of herbs on the
body (diuretic, laxative, and sedative for example) particularly useful and
comprehensive. After reading this section I had a much better appreciation
for the wide range of actions created by herbs. Knowing the actions and some
of the herbs that produced them made my interpretation of conditions and
the decision about which herbs to use much easier. I still refer to this
This is a good book for both the novice and the experienced practitioner
of herbal medicine. Hoffman uses practical language to describe a wide
range of herbal topics. The history and modern practice of herbalism is
discussed. A reference section is included that lists the actions which
herbs are known to have on the body and includes examples of herbs in each
category. herbal remedies for various ailments are organized under the
main systems of the body for quick and easy reference. The last section
describes the growing, drying, storing, and preparation of herbs. This
is a short but very useful and readable guide to a very complex subject.
I picked this reference book up because it offered the combination of an
encyclopedia and a practical guide for the use of medicinal herbs. It is
a well balanced reference work ideal for the novice. It was written by one
of the most well known and respected herbalists in Great Britain.
This is a comprehensive and beautifully illustrated guide to the healing
properties of herbs. The book begins with a discussion of the historical
uses of herbs, followed by a photographic survey of more than 120 medicinal
herbs. each entry is packed with useful information the active chemicals,
actions, and therapeutic applications of each plant. A how-to section is
included for more than 250 safe treatments to help alleviate common
complaints. This book is packed with practical information and advice.
When I went looking for a reference that gave the most information about
the largest number of herbs, this is the book I ended up with. It contains
a full page of information for each of the 100 most commonly used herbs and
one-third to one-fourth of a page for over 450 other herbs.
This is a fully illustrated reference guide to more than 550 of the most
important medicinal plants from herbal traditions around the world.
Historical and modern herbal traditions are surveyed, followed by a section
where the chemical constituents, actions, research on, and the traditional
and current uses of each herb is discussed. A section which discusses the
growing, harvesting, and preparation of medicinal herbs is included, as
well as a section that discusses herbal remedies for several ailments. This
is a thorough and well balanced reference for herbal medicine.
I've taken yoga classes off and on over many years, but the Iyengar
approach to yoga is the one that finally got the message through to me
about how it should 'feel' when it is done right. I learned from a
teacher certified in the Iyengar way, and this is the book she recommended
we get. Since I no longer attend classes, I use this book for my home practice.
This book contains DETAILED instructions and photo illustrations of what
the postures look and feel like when done correctly.
This book is a very good reference tool for anyone practicing aromatherapy.
I have found the recipes for blends very useful for general everyday use
to assist with all kinds of conditions. Safety precautions and methods
of use are helpful and in line with current practices I have seen elsewhere.
Topics include the basic oils, as well as oils for travel, skin care, making
your own perfumes, cooking, and fragrances for the home. Included are two
appendices, one with various charts on the different properties of the
oils, and a second appendix covering aromatherapy massage techniques.
This book was recommended to me by my Reiki teacher, and I can see why.

you to the miracle of dowsing and teaches you to use it yourself. As he says in his

you want to heal yourself - or others - how do you select the best way to go
about it? A pendulum can tell you! Any object dangled by a string will do the
job. Some say it's because your muscles, controlled by your unconscious, will

When The Other Side of Silence was published twenty years ago, it was among the first
books to join together Christian meditation with Jungian psychology. This updated version draws
upon the wisdom and expeiences that Kelsey has accumulated since then.
Kelsey recognized that in the West, more and more people were turning to Eastern forms of
meditative practices in order to fulfill a need of spiritual intimacy in their lives. He also
knew that most people were unaware of a powerful and unique Christian method of meditation that
is available to anyone who wishes to use it. This Christian method of meditation can be powerful,
especially for those of the Christian faith, because of the Christian imagery and symbolism that
is employed. This is a practical manual for those who would like to try out this method of
personally encountering the love of their Creator through meditation.
Walking the Labyrinth has re-emerged today as a metaphor for the spiritual journey and as a
powerful tool for transformation. This walking meditation is an archetype, a mystical
ritual found in all religious traditions. It quiets the mind and opens the mind and the
soul, evoking a feeling of wholeness.
Lauren Artress has re-created the Labyrinth on canvas, modeling it after the sacred
design laid in the floor of Chartres Cathedral in the twelfth century. Over the past
several years she has introduced the Labyrinth to thousands of men and women, and observed
their experiences with its power. They have emerged from their walks with a tremendous
sense of peace and possibility.
Artress's book explores the historical origins of this divine imprint and shares the
discoveries of modern-day seekers. It shows us the potential of the Labyrinth to inspire
change and renewal in individuals and communities. It can serve as a guide to help us
develop a higher level of human awareness that will benefit us as we prepare to enter
the twenty-first century.
