If you feel somewhat lost or overwhelmed when you think of the current world situation, this wonderful book will strengthen you in body and mind, not just to face the challenges that lie ahead, but to really, constructively, find a way of overcoming them. As you will learn, Active Hope is something we do, rather than have. It is a process you can apply to any situation, and it involves three steps: first, you take a clear view of reality; second, you identify what you hope for; and third, you take steps to move in that direction. Joanna Macy shares her rich experience of inspiring people to take a knife and fork to the spaghetti which is modern life, giving us the feeling that, whatever crises we are faced with, we can and will unravel them and bring to them the healing that is the very substance of our souls.
Natalia O Sullivan describes how a recurring dream led her to discover that her mother was similarly troubled, and that the dream led back to a real experience that happened to her grandfather, undiscovered until Natalia researched his history. Our ancestry impacts directly on our life, and Natalia shows how we need to attune to it to bolster our strengths and, through the many evocative techniques she outlines, to cleanse and heal any darkness in our ancestral past that stands as blocks and areas of disablement on our own path. The Ancestral Continuum takes you on an astonishing, revelatory journey through the labyrinth of your ancestral legacy as you explore the treasures and challenges of your family tree and uncover your own toolbox of promise and potential. It is a powerful and revolutionary blueprint for personal transformation.
This bestselling illustrated holistic diary provides not only plenty of space for daily planning but also offers inspiring advice on how to make each and every day really matter. Designed as a resource for enriching daily life, it will guide you on a journey of awareness and fulfilment as you go about your everyday activities. It's all-too-easy to become overwhelmed with multiple thoughts each day as our to-do lists grow, so Dani DiPirro insightfully presents within this highly practical diary one life-enhancing theme a month to focus on in the form of a simple verb, such as "love," explore" and "marvel." Each week-to-view spread then features an inspiring quote that encourages reflection on the theme and an exercise to further your holistic well-being. Focusing on just one theme for each whole month, but in a different way each week, allows a seed of positive awareness not just to be planted but also to grow substantially so that the positive action can become an integral part of daily life. Individual themes for the months of 2015 are: Organize, Love, Change, Explore, Create, Nurture, Inspire, Refresh, Learn, Share, Marvel and Believe. So here's to a year ahead where we really do make every day matter.
