Developing the ideas contained in her first book, LIVING MAGICALLY, Gill Edwards presents a new approach to everyday life which questions our old assumptions and introduces a new vision of reality. STEPPING INTO THE MAGIC is about having a foot in both worlds - walking with the right foot in the practical reality of everyday life, while using the left to tread the world of the shaman, mystic, visionary, map-maker and co-creator. Learn how to: * Creat success in your life * Grow through joy rather than struglle * Harmonise your three inner selves * Develop you psychic skills * Fulfil your true potential By blending the two worlds into one, we begin to heal the age old divisions between spirit and matter, earth and heaven, masculine and feminine, individuality and oneness.

Children of the New Age, a history of the New Age phenomenon, combines ethnographic research with archival material to give an overview of New Age belief and practice from the 1930s to the present day. It chronicles the development of alternative spirituality from embryonic beginnings to a universal trend: from its inception within the underground enclaves of Rosicrucians, occultists and Alice Bailey's neo-theosophists to its modern-day incursion into mainstream political, musical and artistic culture. But this is also a critical history. New Age culture, says author Steven J. Sutcliffe, is notoriously variegated and hotly contested, exposed to competing strands of revelation and apocalypse. Caught between the hippy explosion and the doomsday scenarios of millennial Christianity and UFO groups, it has been the preserve both of extreme religious individualists and of humanistic countercultures lauding the Edenic perfection of this worldly existence. At stake in its history are controversial questions of value, and of its perceived status as a discrete and unified "movement." This book contains firsthand accounts of the author's adventures in counterculture, including firewalking, spiritual healing workshops and life within a Findhorn communitiy, and archival correspondence and publications from the 1950s and 1960s.

In November 2005, author Dirk van der Merwe received the call every parent dreads above all others. His daughter, Riana, was dead at thirty-seven. In the shocked silence that followed, both Dirk and his late wife, Elsie, underwent an unusual experience. Some would call it paranormal—a phenomena that is physical but can’t be proven scientifically. It was a sensation so overwhelming that—notwithstanding the intense shock, pain, and confusion—it filled them with an indescribable peace and acceptance. This reaction was the exact opposite to their experience thirty-five years prior when their second baby was stillborn. The fact that Elsie experienced the same unaccountable “at peace and complete acceptance” sensation propelled Dirk into an exhaustive study of bereavement and natural law. Riana’s Gift is the result of that investigation. It dissects and rejects all standard recommendations for dealing with death and traumatic loss. It dismisses the idea that the grief and pain of bereavement in all its forms is a life sentence that must be endured and suppressed one day at a time. It is unique in providing guidelines that allow you to live on, joyfully celebrating the spirit of the person you love without anguish or guilt, as though the pain and trauma of the loss never happened while the fond memories of the individual blissfully remain. This is guaranteed by that same natural law that leaves a new mother joyously exuberant, forgetting the recent agony of childbirth. Riana’s Gift offers a hands-on manual to healing from loss and trauma with special focus on parental bereavement based on natural law.
