Women have a great many challenges to deal with in their lives. Among the most ubiquitous of those challenges is self-care. Too often they are focused on caring for others and not themselves. This is a book that encourages and inspires women to care more deeply for themselves and to face life’s challenges with courage and joy. It is a practical resource for accessing inner wisdom, enhancing self-esteem, overcoming sorrow, and deepening relationships. This daily companion is a kind of spa for the soul. Here is a resource that will enable women to experience a little bit of daily serenity and embrace a life of lightness and hope.
According to common wisdom, we all have a book inside of us. Every author calls on, crystallizes and shades their life experiences to craft fiction. The most conflict-ridden moments of our lives – the tragedies, humiliations, and terrors – shape the best stories. But how do we select and then write our most significant story? Creative writing professor, sociologist, and popular fiction author Jessica Lourey guides us through the redemptive process of writing a healing novel which recycles and transforms our most precious resource—our own emotions and experiences.
As a follow-up to Writing Down Your Soul, here is a companion coloring book that offers a powerful catalyst for accessing the knowledge already deep within you. Adult coloring books are all the rage and The Soul Discovery Coloring Book comes with the added benefit of helping readers to reach deep within themselves to connect with the divine. The result? The reader not only colors a beautiful picture, but also creates a beautiful life
Lean Forward into Your Life is an invitation, a reflection, and a set of prompts to help you remember the questions you want to ask yourself. In the words of artist and author Mary Ann Radmacher, Lean Forward into Your Life is a “commonplace book for leading an uncommon life. An uncommon life need not include fame and fortune. An uncommon life means living with intention, paying attention, celebrating, taking care of yourself, risking love. To live an uncommon life means to live large from the heart.”
Geared to women who too often find themselves meeting the wants of others at the expense of their own needs, The Courage to Be Yourself provides necessary tools to help readers transform their fears into the courage to express their own authentic selves. By sharing her own journey and the journey of other women, Sue Patton Thoele helps readers learn to set boundaries, change self-defeating behavior patterns, communicate effectively, and, most importantly, become a loving and tolerant friend to themselves.
Imagine being able to utilize the power of your mind for the purpose of healing with Universal Energy—just by asking. Gentle Energy Touch, a form of energy medicine pioneered by Barbara Savin, does just that by using intention to begin the healing process of an individual. In this book, readers will learn some of Savin’s basic, handson techniques for assisting the body’s natural ability to heal itself. The beauty of the Gentle Energy Touch approach is that while it can produce results on its own, it also complements all medical treatments and modalities, often shortening treatment and speeding healing.

These six words—please heal my fear-based thoughts—change lives. In this brief and inspiring book, based on Engle’s study of A Course in Miracles, she explains how to use the prayer and experience immediate benefits:being less irritable, more patient, laughing more, feeling like you have more time, more energy, worrying less, making decisions more easily and saying no without guilt. One Facebook fan told Engle, “The most blessed aspect of this prayer is all the open space it creates for peace—I never knew how many fear-based thoughts were clogging up in me until this prayer.”
