Listen to Nature by Sri Chinmoy
Sri Chinmoy (1931-2007) was a spiritual powerhouse, a philosopher and teacher, a poet and musician, an artist and man of peace, whose approach was at once contemplative and dynamic – timeless wisdom for the here and now.
In these troubled days when the very future of the planet is under threat, his message has never been more important or more timely. Now a selection of his writings on nature has been published in a beautiful new volume, Listen to Nature, which exhorts us to do just that.
Listen to Nature –
Only for your good.
The book features extracts from his essays and lectures (many delivered at the UN), his interviews and answers to questions, and also, tellingly, from his poetry. The lucidity and clarity of his language allied to the depth of his experience make a lasting impression, accessible and inspiring.
In her introduction to the book, Jane Goodall states that Sri Chinmoy ‘stresses the need for a deep spiritual connection with the natural world of which we are part and on which we depend. Let us heed the words of this spiritual teacher before it is too late.’
And Sri Chinmoy’s message, ultimately, is one of hope, a call to the best in us to change what must be changed.
I do not give up,
I never give up,
For there is nothing
In this entire world
That is irrevocably unchangeable

Natural Magic for the Modern Goddess by Lisa Melbourne

Welcome to you, Beautiful Goddess. This book is written from a place of deep acknowledgement and celebration for the feminine in all of us…
Modern life for the everyday woman can be both demanding and exhausting. Now more than ever, women are expected to do it all and they have shown that so far, they are doing a pretty good job of it.

Natural Magic For The Modern Goddess will take you on a journey of self-exploration, self-care and wellbeing.
Combining her personal experience with research and practice, Lisa Melbourne will help you find your soul’s true purpose. Her words of wisdom beautifully transpire into practical spells that will aid you with committing to yourself and manifesting your dreams.
Focusing on the magic of the Mind, Body and Spirit, the book invites you to practise rituals and other natural methods that will allow you to reflect, acknowledge and make the change you need to find the inner Goddess in you.
Enough by Jessica Rose Williams
What is Enough? Time enjoyed slowly. Choices made intentionally. Life lived gracefully.
Without realising, we make many of our life choices based on the whims of others. It’s time to change paths. Welcome to the richer journey in Enough, which requires you to come face to face with who you really are and what you want. With minimalist and slow living writer Jessica Rose Williams as your guide, build a curated, simpler, more intuitive life founded on your personal values and desires.
At 25, Jessica was diagnosed with cervical cancer. The shock compelled her to question her fast-paced consumerist lifestyle, one designed around pleasing others. Enough is her heartfelt story of turning away from a life of regret, and it is also an invitation for you to begin your own transformation. Make sustainable changes for real impact, discover your style and capsule wardrobe, learn to let go of what doesn’t serve you, simplify and organise your home and finances, reclaim your free time, and go deeper to consider what quiet thoughts a noisy life might have been drowning out.
Embrace a mindset of enough and the power that comes from realising you’re already enough, right now – just as you are.

Rise Like a Phoenix by Geraldine Mair
Rise Like a Phoenix, the first in the series, is a highly pragmatic book based on many of my own personal experiences. It is the culmination of years of work and research into human habits everyone is conditioned by.
When you entertain negative emotions that pull you down: shame, blame, worry, envy and resentment, it is due to core principles and patterns. This is limited conditioning that you can change with the correct tools.
You can free yourself from all these crippling states, by using the knowledge inside this book. You will learn to ignite a powerful machine that resides inside of you (your mind) and when given the right information it will only accept the very best future for you.
To reach any goal in life you need to learn the lesson, find the positive, and move on. You will learn how to shift those repetitive patterns that hold you back and reignite your passion for life. It will help you see what you can do to release all the chords that bind you or behaviours that contribute to others governing your actions. Your Best Life is waiting for you, are you ready?

Signposts to Source by Laura Morrice
“I spent roughly six years in a relationship that I knew wasn’t right for me — six years! I never expected it to go on that long, and looking back; I know that I was ignoring the signals my mind and body were giving me. I was refusing to follow my inner guidance. Ultimately, this relationship cost me not only a huge amount of time but also myself. I lost myself completely. My self-confidence, self-respect, and personal power were stripped away until there was nothing left, and this wasn’t the first time this had happened in my life.”
Signposts to Source is an inspirational journey of transformation from addiction, loneliness and apathy to one of love, fulfilment and energetic alignment on every level. It guides us to find our way back to living an empowered life of purpose, honouring our unique selves through self-love and trust in our divine connection to the Universe.
It makes spirituality believable and accessible to everyone. It shows just what is possible when we commit to the growth that’s for our highest and greatest good – reminding us that we have always been worthy and deserving of our hearts desires.
