Chrissie Astell, The Guardian Angel Oracle

In today’s busy and often stressful world, many of us feel the need for some kind of spiritual light, love and guidance. Luckily, no matter what our belief system, angels and their energy are a presence that we can call upon to act as channels between ourselves and God, the Divine, or Spirit – whatever we understand this universal force to be. Chrissie Astell helps us to tap into the energy of the angels with The Guardian Angel Oracle, with Archangel Michael representing heart, Gabriel mind, Raphael body and Uriel soul, and each card representing a different positive quality such as Protection, Love, Forgiveness and Beauty.

This delightful book is the perfect way to introduce young children to the life story of the Buddha, beautifully illustrated by world-renowned artist Rima Fujita. It puts the Buddha's enlightenment into language children can understand. It tells the story of how Siddhartha became the Buddha. His quest for understanding leads to ultimate awakening under the Bodhi tree. It poses questions infused with childlike wonder such as, "Why aren't people happy?" and "Is true happiness possible?"

Known for her distinctive style, her works are extracted from her dreams and meditation process. H.H.

The Dalai Lama calls her, “An artist who creates beautiful art.”

Dark Star Rising

Dark Star Rising: Magick and Power in the Age of Trump is the new book by Gary Lachman. Within the concentric circles of Trump’s regime lies an unseen culture of occultists, power-seekers, and mind-magicians whose influence is on the rise. In this unparalleled account, historian Gary Lachman examines the influence of occult and esoteric philosophy on the unexpected rise of the alt-right. Gary Lachman takes a close look at the various magical and esoteric ideas that are impacting political events across the globe. From New Thought and Chaos Magick to the far-right esotericism of Julius Evola and the Traditionalists, Lachman follows a trail of mystic clues that involve, among others, Norman Vincent Peale, domineering gurus and demagogues, Ayn Rand, Pepe the Frog, Rene Schwaller de Lubicz, synarchy, the Alt-Right, meme magic, and Vladimir Putin and his postmodern Rasputin. Come take a drop down the rabbit hole of occult politics in the twenty-first century and find out the post-truths and alternative facts surrounding the 45th President of the United States with one of the leading writers on esotericism and its influence on modern culture.

Living Tantra: The Dance of Transformation

Through their living, vibrant teachings Doug and Catherine bring to life understandings from the ancient way of Tantra. Although often seen as esoteric and mystical Tantra involves a practical engagement with all our senses in the life we are living. Tantra is a method where, rather than denying our wants and needs, we explore our relationship to them. In the process, we navigate a path through our struggles and difficulties, our traumas and traumata. These two meditation masters and lineage holders will show us how this dance of transformation leads us into a clearer, more compassionate, more empowered and loving state.
