Death: The end of self-improvementThis book celebrates the great stripping process of aging, dying and spiritual awakening. Beautiful, poignant, at times humorous, transcendent, messy, down to earth, refreshingly honest—the book explores death, and more importantly, being alive, through a rich mix of personal stories and spiritual reflections.

Joan Tollifson writes about her mother’s final years and explores what it means to be alive … and invites an awakening to the immediacy of this moment and the wonder of ordinary life. She demonstrates a pathless path of genuine transformation, seeing all of life as sacred and worthy of devotion, and finding joy in the full range of our human experience

falling open amoda maaThis book offers the “jewel” of Amoda Maa’s teachings—how to be fully awake and fully human, open in a way that’s the key to freedom and to what’s most needed in our troubled times. Unlike having no boundaries, this openness transforms reactivity, ends separation, leads us to our true authority, and guides us with the intelligence of love..

Falling Open is a gift for difficult times, well suited to this pivotal moment of change and uncertainty. It is “an invitation to openness” – the key to lasting happiness. Amoda says: “I’m not interested in how spiritual you are. I’m interested in how willing you are to stand as openness in the face of brokenness and loss.”

love unveiled book coverA passionate and deep exploration of how love is essential to our spiritual growth and development, from beloved author and teacher A. H. Almaas.

In Love Unveiled, A. H. Almaas explores three dimensions of love: appreciative love–the true liking of somebody or something; merging or connecting love–a force that melts away separateness; and passionate, ecstatic love–capable of consuming us from inside.

Almaas explores the barriers that tend to block our experience of loving awakening and provides experiential exercises throughout the book to help readers along their path.
