This is a beautifully deeply crafted book that sheds insight onto what is the Divine Feminine and how it can help women to express themselves. Both academic and spiritually inspired Teri’s approach weaves together the three faces of the Divine Feminine from three strong traditions; Sophia from Christianity, Shekinah from Judaism and Shakti from Hinduism.

Intermingling stories from real women’s lives about their struggle, surrender and opening to this inner power, this deep yearning, this unseen force, was handled with honesty and sensitivity. I was enthralled by the wonderful and practical exercises that helped me “get in contact” with this powerful force – the kundalini – which is naturally in us, but needs to be heard and seen and felt. I have since started painting and feel Teri’s work has been pivotal in this outpouring of my own creativity. A joy to experience.

What if most of what you have been told about health and the human body was wrong? What if you had within you the ability to heal from any condition? This book shatters many of the myths that currently exist regarding health and illness, and presents a vision of the human body and healing that both makes sense and inspires. If you have any illness, you have the potential to heal yourself. If you already enjoy great health, you can illuminate your consciousness in ways beyond your imagining. Whatever your current situation, you can begin to feel a true connectedness to who you really are and your potential to create your own reality. Our human potential is far greater than we can possibly imagine and is intrinsically linked to what is unfolding within us at a cellular level.

For the past 35 years, Barbara Wren has been searching for the understanding of who we really are and how our bodies work. She has been teaching and lecturing for the past 27 years showing people a different approach to healing through nutrition and healing techniques. The founder of the College of Natural Nutrition, she has always believed that empowering the individual through contacting their own inner wisdom is the only true way back to wholeness and happiness within the universal laws and rhythms. The explanations and guidance in this book is for the medic and layman alike, although some may find it easier to read in small bites as many aspects of our total wellbeing are covered, including physical exercise, nutrition and certain personal practices to promote that cellular awakening. On the whole, a very well written and informative volume.

What happens to your sanity on your daily commute to and from work? Or during your chaotic weekend of chauffeuring your family between scheduled events? Do you dread the inevitable routine of traffic congestion, overcrowded trains, missed buses, boredom, and perhaps even road rage?

Transform the sameness of any activity into a daily meditation of purpose.

This collection of delightful and inspiring short vignettes illustrate Dr Stewart Bitkoff’s daily musings to become his journey towards acceptance and ultimate transcendence of his daily drive to work.

For anyone who has spends time commuting on busy roads, crowded trains and buses, etc this is a ‘must read’. It illustrates an alternative way of thinking about the driver who has just veered in front of you without warning, the fellow commuter whose armpit you are jammed into, or the one who insists on taking up more than their share of the seat, and so on. This book is one part stress management, one morsel spirituality, and all parts enlightening. Read it at your peril – you may find your way of thinking changing – for the better!
