School of Awake by Kidada Jones

School of Awake by Kidada Jones

In a world that seemingly has lost the ability to initiate the next generation into anything other than consumeristic values it is interesting to be introduced to a book that digs into the essence of what modern life is like for a young girl with a desire to engage with a more meaningful set of values. School of Awake is a book which its author, Kidada Jones “…wanted to write since I was 9 years old and the one I wish I had as a tween.” The result is a personal guide to teenage living by offering guidance to its reader on how, among many other things,  to connect to… Read More

Letting Go of Good by Andrea Mathews

Letting Go of Good by Andrea Mathews

There can be little doubt that whilst a great deal of today’s New Age spirituality distances itself from established religions such as Christianity it still harbours more than a thin connection to their traditional values. The most prominent example of this exists in the idea that in order to be a worthy human being we have to be ‘good’, we have to do good things, or carry out good works. Similar ethical ideas permeate many other fringe areas of occult and mystical philosophy. As a result we find that many within in Witchcraft identify themselves specifically as ‘White Witches’ and thereby associate themselves with only positive magic, whilst at the… Read More

Make Peace With Your Mind by Mark Coleman

Make Peace With Your Mind by Mark Coleman

How many times a day do you openly criticise yourself for one perceived misdemeanour or another? We in the spiritual community with our self-imposed emphasis upon self-improvement are probably more aware than most of our own personal failings. As a result we tend to be more sensitive of those times when we fail to come up to our expectations of ourselves and are more critical of them. According to senior meditation teacher at Spirit Rock Meditation Centre we are all suffering from a worldwide epidemic of self-criticism. Sometimes this habit of self-negation can cripple us both emotionally and mentally and to such a degree that we lose that essential connection… Read More

Start Right Where You Are by Sam Bennett

Start Right Where You Are by Sam Bennett

Even when you know and understand the personal journey that lies before you in life the actual act of trying to get from where you currently are to where you want to be fraught with problems and challenges. In fact, the busier we become in our daily life more difficulties appear to be thrown up in front of us – issues that twart our every move and which try to deflect us from our path. What if there was only someone that we can call upon at such times, someone who could at least help guide and steer us through uneven terrain and who can help us to navigate the… Read More

Fully Engaged by Thomas M. Sterner

Fully Engaged by Thomas M. Sterner

Ever notice how little time we actually spend during the course of a day focussing upon the moment that we are in? As work loads increase, future deadlines loom, projects are planned, and to-do lists are made, we are constantly under pressure to operate from a need to catch up with the future. The result of this constant projection of consciousness out and away from the current moment means that we tend to miss out on the fact that we are constantly allowing ourselves to be driven relentlessly forward by circumstances that we are not firmly in control of. Present Moment Functioning In his book Fully Engaged: Using the Practicing… Read More

Dropping the Struggle by Roger Housden

Dropping the Struggle by Roger Housden

Very few of us are unfamiliar with the immense struggles that life presents us with. Sometimes these challenges intensify even further and push us to breaking point; occasionally they abate and our world returns to a more tolerable condition. Whatever our personal circumstances are and the type of problems that life throws up at us we, as humans, tend to make our personal suffering more intense through our own striving for personal improvement or in our constant search for material security. It seems, however that the more we struggle against adversity the greater the challenges become. An Alternative Approach In his book Dropping the Struggle: Seven Ways to Live the… Read More

Discover Your Authentic Self by Sherrie Dillard

Discover Your Authentic Self by Sherrie Dillard

Who are you? Are you a living your life as a fully conscious being aware of every aspect of your true divine nature or are you little more than a train making its way along pre-defined tracks to an unknown destination? In order to survive in this world we all need to compromise our true ourselves to some degree by offering up only a small part of ourselves to society and even then in a way that keeps everybody feeling comfortable. For most of us this process occasionally becomes too demanding and we feel like screaming out from a level deep within ourselves that we know we are more, much more, than… Read More

On the Verge by Cara Bradley

Cara Bradley is a former professional skater and mental strength coach. She is also the founder of Verge Yoga and hosts the popular podcast Real Women, Courageous Wisdom. As a professional athlete, Bradley experienced a supreme state of motivation which she describes as “high-definition, high-voltage living” or, as she personally describes it, “living on the verge”. In her book of the same name, she states that “The verge, by nature, is fleeting and elusive. You can!t hold on to it, and you can,t search for it. You simply need to show up on the verge – on the threshold between a moment ago and a moment from now.” An Experienced… Read More
