A Book of Miracles by Bernie S. Siegel

Every minute of every day a miracle of one kind or another takes place. Without their intervention in our lives, life itself would not only be dreary and predictable, we would have no clear evidence that the Divine actually exists. Some of the most miraculous events occur within the sphere of physical well-being.

The Healing Power of Tea by Caroline Dow

The Healing Power of Tea by Caroline Dow

Drinking tea always used to be regarded as the right and priviledge of the upper classes who invariably established social protocols and ceremonial rites around its consumption.
