Change is one of life's absolute certainties, but so many of us are held back by a fear of the unknown, by constant procrastination and by living in the shadow of negative thinking about what the future holds for us. This book shows us how to bring positive energy into our life by breaking out of the cocoon, shifting our focus from the negative and embracing change. Written by life coach, clinical hypnotherapist and healer Karen Whitelaw-Smith, The Butterfly Experience reveals how changing your mindset, focusing on abundance, living in the present and learning the skills of relaxation will help you overcome your fears and become the person you deserve to be. The book offers a wealth of practical tools such as visualizations, meditations and affirmations to help you to forget about past mistakes and habits and find the inspiration for change deep within yourself. Learn how to take responsibility for your own thoughts, stop waiting for the miracle that will make you happy, and trust your intuition rather than looking to other people for approval. The journey from caterpillar to butterfly is full of profound transformations and stubborn obstacles to overcome, but this book shows us that if we continue to focus on what we don't want, or on what makes us fearful, then we are certain to stay where we are and we will never experience the exciting challenges and wonders that lie ahead. Apply the groundbreaking techniques of The Butterfly Experience and discover the key to a healthy, happier life.

By the time Alicia Cass is fifteen, she is homeless, a high school dropout, and out of options. Turning to the only family she knows she can trust-after her own family and the foster care system leave her abused and broken-Cass joins a gang on the streets of Los Angeles. It's the 1980s-cocaine and gang violence are at an all-time high, and Cass soon finds herself in the eye of the storm, struggling for survival. Cass's memoir is rooted in courage and determination. It's a story that shows what it's like for one woman grappling with the perilous cycles of abuse. After a childhood buried under the emotional weight of abuse and fear, Cass emerges as a symbol of hope and the power of second chances. You will be inspired by her courage and touched by her eloquent honesty. This riveting memoir delves deep into the gripping account of life in a gang-when you don't know if you can even trust yourself-and the only family you know is the one you have found on the streets.

This booklet has been designed as a counselor-friendly resource tool to assist in companioning others in a loss, grief, or change process. The booklet creates an opportunity for the sharing of what the world was like for a person before the loss or change. (It may have been the death of a family member, a significant role change, or any other type of loss.) It allows for creative and interactive exploration through drawing or journaling thoughts, ideas, feelings, actions, and systems of support. The process allows for exploration and sharing of the “before the loss or change” stage, as well as the “during the event,” and the “after/present” stage or looking into the future. The resource has been designed to be simple to use in a manner that may assist with understanding, sharing, and providing hope.

Here is an account of the enlightenment experience and its consequences written by a trained philosopher and mathematician who is also a master of English prose. Merrell-Wolff experienced enlightenment, became established in the state, and wrote clearly about the value and nature of the knowledge he attained. This is a record of transformation in consciousness written during the actual process itself, supplying an unusually intimate view. The author faces the epistemological problem directly--the problem of demonstrating the reality and value of knowledge springing from mystical roots. He gives serious attention to the philosophical and psychological criticism, writing with an eye to the pitfalls indicated by such criticism. He did not write only for those who believe easily.

- Is a powerful position a guarantee that a religion will continue? - Does God take sides in religious power struggles? - Can God survive religious exclusivity and diversity? - Is God migrating from "out there" to "in here"? - Is religion sustainable in the long run? In seeking answers to these questions, this book explores the possibilities afforded by playful religion. Religion has playful origins, but this aspect is forgotten as soon as institutional power becomes self-serving instead of subservient. Power changes the very essence of religion. Virtually all religions are distorted versions of a playful original. Institutionalization is religion's curse, not its blessing. Apparent success hides the failure of religion to be faithful to its original intent. This book helps find the way back from bordering to inclusivity and openness.
