Eckhart Tolle's writings on the power of living in the moment have fast become the most sought-after modern classic on spiritual enlightenment. Now, in this new, life-transforming book, Tolle illuminates the fundamental elements of his teachings, as we are invited to contemplate the spiritual truths that come through embracing silence and stillness. STILLNESS SPEAKS is a collection of 200 concise and beautifully illuminating entries, arranged into twelve reflective themes. Each entry can stand as its own teaching or may be read as part of the fluid sequence of its theme. In their totality, the entries provide a road map out of human suffering. When we are no longer limited by our thinking mind, suffering and pain disappear and we are able to move towards a fuller understanding of our relationships, of nature, and of the profound wisdom that is to be found in stillness.

How can a teacher remain whole and happy, able to teach well for an entire semester, an entire year, and an entire career? Teach from the Heart is about finding, rediscovering, or holding on to the heart of the teaching life, which is, quite literally, the teacher's heart. It is an encouragement to take up teaching as more than a service to provide, a profession to master, or a job to perform. It is an invitation to artisanry, teaching as a craft that we master by working with our hands over long periods of time, producing results that bear the mark of their maker. Whether you're just beginning, or in it for the long haul, sit down with Teach from the Heart and deepen your heart for the teaching life. We need not bring to class the wisdom and knowledge we gained elsewhere; we can take up teaching as a spiritual practice, with the classroom as a sacred space for our own formation as persons. With nearly forty years' experience as both student and teacher, Jenell Paris's perspective is hard-won, but still lighthearted and enthusiastic. Teachers from any context will benefit: stories and examples include preschool, K-12, community education, and college teaching.

Pat Pilkington was co-founder of the Bristol Cancer Help Centre, the first charity to offer a truly holistic approach to cancer care. In this memoir, completed when she knew she was approaching death, Pat tells her story; starting with her childhood, through the early days of the Centre to its growth into Penny Brohn Cancer Care, the globally influential institution it is today. Above all, she shares her own spiritual journey, her deep exploration of faith, love, and what lies at the core of each human life and each human death. She speaks to life, not just to cancer, and shows how the restoration of the human spirit is an essential part of holistic healing. The Golden Thread of the title is the transcendent nature of love that runs though everything, awakening the potential to uplift, inspire, overcome and create anew, even in the face of severe adversity.

Paths Between Head and Heart provides an accessible but comprehensive account of how science and spirituality relate, not as enemies, but as partners in the quest for a truth that is greater than either one can understand alone. While many books have been written on science and religion, not many have looked at how spirituality and science exist as complementary parts of a larger whole, and how they relate specifically to the transitional challenges that define our era. '...explains the paradox of the unity of science and spirituality. Oliver Robinson shows that these two ways of looking at the world, so often seen as opposing forces, actually come from the same source...' Jennifer Kavanagh, author of The World is Our Cloister

A toolkit of simple exercises to successfully tame your inner critic. Whether an infrequent occurrence or a constant running narrative, internal self-talk can be mildly irritating or severely debilitating. Not always the classic sign of schizophrenia or other serious psychiatric disorder, it’s a common mental health complaint that can lead to depression, anxiety, phobias, and obsessive-compulsive thoughts if left unchecked. In this rich collection of practical, take-charge strategies, the author reveals how self-critical voices can be transformed and used to your own advantage. As a follow-up to his first popular book, Andreas digs deeper here, showing how to actually engage a voice as opposed to simply change it. Rather than talk back or try to silence it, Andreas teaches readers how to join with a voice, clarify what it’s saying, ask for its positive intent, use its specific abilities to your advantage, and more. Follow the exercises and you’ll be equipped to better manage your worst self-talk.
