This marvelous book is a comprehensive account of man's search for God beyond faith, from the Neanderthal period through the Neolithic to contemporary man. An amazing, enthralling, and insightful account, beautifully rendered in less than 300 pages! ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan

An ancient Tibetan Master, through Gill, states that unless we recognize the importance of the Spirit Realm, wrong decisions will continue to be made, which will result in humanity's demise.

In order to understand and solve the problems of the world, it must be reframed and put into a wider cosmic view and Spiritual context. Linear thinking creates limited vision and understanding. Grief arises from perception at a certain level.

Manjushri continues...the world of science negated many other forms of knowing that existed for thousands of years, when it was proclaimed that science is "the" way to see the world. He says that identifying and dissolving fear is THE essential work to save human life on the planet.

It takes time and an open mind to fully grasp the depth of meaning, brilliance and wisdom in this book. ~ Reviewed by Teresa King

This is my favorite translation of this lost Gnostic Gospel. This represents another aspect of the Divine Feminine in the early Christianities that is often overlooked in scholarship. This is also the first complete translation of this gospel and I find the most readable and beautiful. ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan

Written in the style of a Winnie the Pooh Book. The author helps Pooh bear wrap his mind around the core principles of Taoism. Written like a children's book but made for everybody.

Published: New World Library - March 15th, 2016

From the author of "Hardcore Zen", punk rock bassist/zen priest, Brad Warner lays down the teachings of zen master Dogen (founder of the Soto school). Warner's sarcastic sense of humor and frequent use of curse words makes him a rather unique writer in the subject of Buddhism and a funny one at that. ~ Reviewed by Chris Van Natten

Author Nouwen valued the discipline of listening to the 'still small voice within' and this is part of what allowed him to be so helpful to so many folks. Discernment allows us to break through the veil of existence and be led by a vision that becomes real to ourself. This process also allows us to know when to act, when to wait, and when to be led by others. ~ Reviewed by Vicki Ward
