cover The Invitation by Oriah Mountain Dreamer, 136 pgs., May 1999, Hardcover: $11.20

One night, after an unsatisfying evening at a party, author Oriah Mountain Dreamer wrote the start of The Invitation. By the light of her streetlight, she began,

"It doesn't interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing.... I want to know if you have touched the center of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by life's betrayals or have become shriveled and closed from fear of further pain...."

Her profound invitation (longer than is written here) became the framework for this wise and inspiring book. Chapter by chapter, the author uses passages from her "Invitation" to welcome readers into a life that is more soul fulfilling and passionate, and has far greater truth and integrity. In a sense, she invites readers to get a life instead of buying into a lifestyle. Each chapter ends with a guided meditation specific to the theme of the chapter, such as "The Joy" and "The Failure."

Despite her suspiciously New Age-sounding name, Oriah Mountain Dreamer is a highly grounded, practical, and honest writer. This fresh and beautifully packaged book is destined for great acclaim in the realm of spiritual inspiration. --Gail Hudson,®

cover Peace Is Every Step : The Path of Mindfulness in Everyday Life by Thich Nhat Hanh, 134 pgs., Reissue edition March 1992, Paperback: $10.36

In the rush of modern life, we tend to lose touch with the peace that is available in each moment. World-renowned Zen master, spiritual leader, and author Thich Nhat Hanh shows us how to make positive use of the very situations that usually pressure and antagonize us. For him a ringing telephone can be a signal to call us back to our true selves. Dirty dishes, red lights, and traffic jams are spiritual friends on the path to "mindfulness" -- the process of keeping our consciousness alive to our present experience and reality.... --Publisher Weekly

cover Cultivating the Mind of Love : The Practice of Looking Deeply in the Mahayana Buddhist Tradition by Thich Nhat Hanh, Sept. 1995, Paperback: $11.20

This is a "can't stop reading" book. I have read Thich Nhat Hanh books before but this book is my favorite until now. Every page is filled with compelling teachings of buddhism and beautiful thoughts. The book is a love story in which, Hanh basically combines the teachings of Buddah with the story of his first love. While reading this book you feel the love in the air and become totally happy. Don't believe me, find out for yourself. --® reviewer, Jan. 16, 1999

cover In the Meantime : Finding Yourself and the Love You Want by Iyanla Vanzant, 326 pgs., Sept. 1999, Paperback: $10.40

What is the meantime? According to author and inspirational speaker Iyanla Vanzant, being in the "meantime" means being in a state of limbo. "When you are not happy where you are and you are not quite sure if you want to leave or how to leave, you are in the meantime," she explains. Rather than wallow in confusion, Vanzant encourages you to use the meantime as an opportunity to prepare yourself for true love. The first order of business is to clean house, starting with the basement--the place in the psyche where you store your most destructive thoughts. Room by room, Vanzant takes you through a metaphorical cleaning of the soul. This way, when your meantime days are over and love finally comes knocking on the front door, you'll have a clean house to welcome love into. --®

How to Get What You Want ... How to Get What You Want and Want What You Have: A Practical and Spiritual Guide to personal Success by John Gray, 310 pgs., Jan. 1999, Hardcover: $17.47; (Paperback avlbl. 6/2000.)

What you want materially and what you want spiritually are both important, says John Gray, Ph.D... "Wanting more is the nature of our soul, mind, heart, and senses," ... it's okay to want a big promotion or fancy car. It's also noble to want a solid spiritual life and to want to be at peace with yourself. However, you need to recognize and work on the many self-defeating behaviors that may be thwarting your chances for reaching your goals. In fact, he identifies 24 typical stumbling blocks to look for. ... It's filled with anecdotes and tools to help you achieve a fuller sense of identity. Gray says that one of the most important steps to reaching this level of self-awareness is meditation, and Gray gives dozens of stepping-off points for meditation exercises to help you ascertain what exactly it is that you want, and how to remove any obstacles--whether external or internal.® review
