Beyond Us

A collection of essays that confront us with our dysfunctional yet unexamined ways of being and living in the early 21st century.

This short and vigorous book consists of a penetrating collection of interrelated essays whose defining characteristic is that they pin down, magnify and mirror back to us, with embarrassing clarity and force, our most dysfunctional yet unexamined ways of thinking, living and relating to each other in the early 21st century. Our ills are diagnosed with x-ray vision and laser precision.

The book assesses our situation from a neutral vantage point outside the cultural echo chamber of values, opinions and beliefs in which most of us find ourselves immersed. In doing so, it reveals what most of us can’t see. It confronts us with unpleasant truths about ourselves, the acknowledgement of which is imperative if we are to heal and improve our lives. The book also points to sane ways forward, and the appropriateness of these ways become self-evident once they are elucidated.

Forever in My Veins

Lionel Friedberg's career has exposed him to the extraordinary wonders of our planet and many unforgettable personalities from maverick scientists to politicians, entertainers and people who survived near-death experiences.

Emmy Award-winning producer and New York Times bestselling author Lionel Friedberg has spent 50 years making films as diverse as full-length theatrical features and television documentaries. After growing up in South Africa during the troubled era of apartheid he began his career during the dying days of colonialism in Central Africa. He eventually settled in Los Angeles where his work took him to the sound stages of Hollywood and to the most remote regions of the Earth. His career exposed him to the extraordinary wonders of our planet and brought him into close contact with many unforgettable personalities from maverick scientists to politicians, entertainers and people who survived near-death experiences.

His observations have taught him that life is far more complex and infinitely stranger than we can imagine. When he was struck by an unexpected life-threatening illness his efforts to find a way to save his life took him back to Africa where he encountered the age-old rituals and powerful healing methods of African shamans. Their mysterious ways have much to teach us and are as relevant today as they were in ancient times.



The Joy of Caring

Caring is much more than attending in illness and pain. Caring is loving, appreciating, listening, accepting, feeling, being present, embracing, understanding, sharing, accompanying, healing, co-creating. Caring is giving out of joy.

The Joy of Caring explores how we can make our relationships a genuine flow from me to you and between us, releasing masks, guilt and defensive attitudes that separate and exhaust us. It proposes practices that enable us to develop as creative, autonomous and emotionally mature people. To strengthen us and help us live in a more constructive and sociable way. To stop crushing ourselves and let go of the inner dialogue which is desperate and useless.

With her concise and pleasant style, Miriam Subirana looks at the wisdom of caring, ranging from the wise masters of antiquity to our times. Splashing the text with didactic examples, The Joy of Caring accompanies us in all kinds of care: mind, body, heart and spirit; emphasizing the importance of compassion and a contemplative attitude, so that we can enjoy the potential we harbor.

Resetting Our Future: Empowering Climate Action in the United States

The ACE National Strategic Planning Framework for the United States presented in its historical context, including expert commentaries.

An ACE National Strategic Planning Framework for the United States is a game changer for climate action. After decades of inspired but fragmented efforts, 150 highly diverse Action for Climate Empowerment (ACE) leaders joined forces in 2020 to build a strategic roadmap for encouraging, informing, and empowering the public to tackle the climate crisis. Their goal: push the United States and other nations to meet - and exceed - the targets of the Paris Agreement in the fastest and most equitable way possible, namely, by empowering the people.



Taking Heart

Searching for meaning, truth or just to understand yourself better - then this is for you!

The meaning and mystery of life is ultimately found in personal relationship, sometimes with another and, for those who search, sometimes with God. In Taking Heart the experiences of four people who are spiritually searching and looking for a direct experience of God are explored, and their different journeys through self-doubt to self-acceptance and to the heart of faith are discussed. These four people are neither especially religious nor spiritual, and nor are they famous. They are ordinary people on an extraordinary search for meaning.

As with all journeys there is discovery but also an uncovering and a recovering. All heart journeys are an exodus that takes us out of captivity and are also the passion story which is at the heart of the mystery of faith, a journey through the very worst and towards the very best. And, throughout the spiritual journey, God is shaping and forming our inner life in the unknown depths of our heart.



The Unwelcome

She should have known Lutz would never let her go so easily.... After a chance roadside meeting, Kaitlyn Brecker's jealous ex-boyfriend pursues her into the Appalachian foothills, revealing the monster under his skin for the first time.


Kait’s volcanic temper has already scared most of her friends away, and a bad breakup with her college boyfriend Lutz has left her crippled by guilt and painful memories. So, when she learns that her best friend Alice is planning a three-day sabbatical in a secluded mountain cabin, Kait jumps at the chance to tag along, convinced that rekindling their fractured friendship is the key to fixing whatever’s breaking down inside of her.

She should have known… Lutz would never let her go so easily.

After a chance roadside meeting, Kait’s jealous ex-boyfriend pursues her into the foothills, revealing the monster under his skin for the first time: a body-snatching inhuman entity capable of assimilating and adopting the guise of any human host. Lutz is determined to prove his twisted love to Kait, even if it means carving his monument to his devotion in the pilfered flesh of her closest friends. Now, with miles of snow-hushed Appalachia between them and civilization, Kait must unite her friends against this horrifying threat, and learn to embrace her own inner monster, before the shadows of her past swallow up her life for good.


Where Madness Lies

A story about the high price of repression, and how one woman, who lost nearly everything, must be willing to reveal the failures of the past in order to save future generations.

Germany, 1934. Rigmor, a young Jewish woman is a patient at Sonnenstein, a premier psychiatric institution known for their curative treatments. But with the tide of eugenics and the Nazis’ rise to power, Rigmor is swept up in a campaign to rid Germany of the mentally ill.

USA, 1984. Sabine, battling crippling panic and depression commits herself to McLean Hospital, but in doing so she has unwittingly agreed to give up her baby.

Linking these two generations of women is Inga, who did everything in her power to help her sister, Rigmor. Now with her granddaughter, Sabine, Inga is given a second chance to free someone she loves from oppressive forces, both within and without.

This is a story about hope and redemption, about what we pass on, both genetically and culturally. It is about the high price of repression, and how one woman, who lost nearly everything, must be willing to reveal the failures of the past in order to save future generations.

With chilling echoes of our time, Where Madness Lies is based on a true story of the author’s own family.


COMING SOON

Crystal Prescriptions volume 8

Crystal Prescriptions volume 8 is the latest in the bestselling A-Z crystal directories from Judy Hall, with sections on crystal tools, using specific layouts, and a prosperity crystals compendium.

Prosperity is a hot topic during uncertain times, but it tends to focus attention on money, or the lack of it. The next in the increasingly popular Crystal Prescriptions series, this volume introduces the core processes of harnessing crystals to manifest an abundant life, and release blocks to prosperity. It examines karmic debts, ancestral and familial ingrained attitudes; and how to transmute them. Rather than saying ‘do it this way’, it helps you to sense the energy of crystals, choose the appropriate ones for you and work with them in an interactive process that generates inner security and a real sense of well-being. Crystals for Prosperity also examines what can enrich life in addition to money.

An A-Z crystal directory which includes sections on crystal tools, using specific layouts, and a prosperity crystals compendium.
