The Ripple of Awakening, A Mighty Companion on the Spiritual Awakening Journey by Ann-Marie Marchant
The book is about a spiritual awakening, what that means and looks like from the human perspective. It explores the highs, the lows, the commonalities, the phases and the stages and ways in which the reader can support themselves. It is real, raw, authentic, at times funny, certainly inspiring and full of hope.
Ann-Marie takes the reader’s hand and walks them step-by-step through the stages of their own healing journey and offers ways that can inspire them, with practical suggestions and practices such as prayer, meditation, self-enquiry, self-care, self-expression, forgiveness and inner-child healing.
At the heart of the book is a flushing out of the reader’s relationship, or lack of relationship, with God. Ann-Marie reveals how she went from a complete non-believer and came to eventually work for the big guy upstairs, being guided to become a multi-faith minister. She endeavours to de-funk the ego’s construct of God and inspire the reader to wake up to the love, peace, guidance and joy that is waiting for them through their connection with the God of their own understanding.
Spiritual Freedom in the Digital Age: How to Remain Healthy and Sane in a World Gone Mad by Jason Gregory
Jason Gregory reveals the psychological and spiritual damage digital technology and social media are having on the human mind, and gifts you a digital free lifestyle to reclaim your health and sanity for a better world. Spiritual Freedom in the Digital Age demonstrates that even though we are more connected than ever before, we are subtly going insane and also diminishing our health. Even though we are more connected; the constant conflict in the digital world proves that we are more divided than ever. Spiritual Freedom in the Digital Age is an antidote to the digital problem.
It’s a cogent appeal for caution and a “user’s manual” with concrete suggestions for how people can use this technology in a way that does not disconnect their links with nature.” ~ Daniel Reid, author of The Tao of Health, Sex, and Longevity
Jason Gregory is an author and philosopher specializing in Eastern and Western philosophy, comparative religion, psychology, cognitive science, metaphysics, and ancient cultures. For many years he has studied the spiritual traditions and meditative practices of Buddhism, Hinduism, and Taoism. He lives in Brisbane, Australia.
The Way of Reiki – The Inner Teachings of Mikao Usui by Frans Stiene
The Way of Reiki guides us on the path to becoming a better human being, softening our anger and worry so that we can live in a world of compassion and kindness. It is a must read for any Reiki practitioner or teacher who wants to bring more love into their practice, teachings and the world.
“This book is a masterpiece. Frans Stiene has brilliantly synthesized with clarity and simplicity the essence of the system of Reiki as a path of self-cultivation (shugyo) toward self-realization. The content conveys a depth of understanding of Reiki in the context of Japanese culture, arts, philosophy and religions as a whole in a style that is engaging and illuminating. This is the kind of book one can read many times and still find deep insights into the nature of life, the universe, and being human.” ~ Veronique Frede, Reiki teacher at the Japanese Culture Center in Chicago
Bestselling author Frans Stiene has been a major influence on global research into the system of Reiki since the early 2000s. His practical understanding of the Japanese influences on the system has allowed students around the world to connect deeply with this practise. He lives in Haarlem, Netherlands.
Who is in? Beyond Self-image by Avikal E. Costantino
Who is in? is for all spiritual seekers who encounter the basic questions of identity: Who am I?, Who is in? or What is the nature of I? Using the Zen Buddhist koan – a paradox to be meditated upon – ‘Who is in’ as a door to discovering the true self and pure subjectivity, this book provides examples and understandings, techniques and invitations to experiment with self-inquiry.
I found Avikal Costantino’s book on mastering the inner judge inspiring, easy to read and extremely practical. He obviously understands the subject well and presents it in a way that can lead people to do their own work on overcoming the tyranny of their inner judge. As a seminar leader who deals with this theme, I find this book a great contribution to the work and will not hesitate to recommend it to our participants. ~ Dr Krishnananda Trobe, author of Face to Face with Fear and When Sex Becomes Intimate
Avikal E. Costantino is a mystic, poet and martial artist. Curiosity, passion and love for the truth guide his life and teaching. He is founder and director of the Integral Being Institute. He lives in Bondi, Australia.
