5.0 out of 5 stars great value, 31 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Its a shame so many people seem to be unhappy with this workout as its fantastic.

I am actually a follower of Ashtanga Yoga, however, i bought a dvd on that type and the woman taking you through the workout just drones on & actually leaves you feeling more irritated by the end of it so i decided to go back to Barbara Curry. I first bought this workout when it came out on tape and did the workout everyday, within 2 weeks i was able to do the more advanced poses! The great thing about this workout is that Barbara has two demonstrators in the background, one of which will always be doing the beginners pose so it really is great for all levels of yogi's!

The workout is also seperated into sections the first being 15 minute stretch and different sections for different areas of your body so you can either work through them all with a little break between each section or concentrate on your problem area each day for 20 minutes!

I do have to agree with some of the other reviewers about the poses not being held for long enough, in Yoga i've always been taught to hold the pose for 5 breathes and Barbara does not always give you time to do this. However, in using this dvd daily or 2/3 days a week you will soon memorise the poses and be able to do it either without the dvd or with it on in the background simply as a reminder while you work at your own pace!

I don't see the issues people have with her voice or the nature of her speaking due to having dvd where the teacher makes you give up the will to live & i think its refreshing to hear someone upbeat and smiley! you can always turn the volume right down if its an issue!

5.0 out of 5 stars Jam packed with information & fun, 3 Dec. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you have those little twinges of intuition, if you are a psychic working with a particular form of divination, if you are a complete beginner or even a sceptic this book is for you!

The book begins with a list for you to compare your experiences with, if you answer yes to 8 or more then you are already tuned into your abilities. Everyone can do this, its just a question of finding the right medium for you.

The first three sections go into details of the three most common forms of psychic ability and you will be amazed to find where you fit into these catagories. There are also suggestion of how to develop these (or even start from scratch)

The book then goes on to explain, quite briefly over 30 forms of divination with enough information for you to try these out. Once you have done these or even just tried out one or two & decide thats the route you are going to take then i'd recommend buying one of Easons books on that particular subject because i don't think this book covers much more than testing the medium.

Although this book covers very little on lots of subjects i am giving this 5 points because i think its a great starting point, an overall great read and even a great refresher for experienced psychics who may be looking to try something new

3.0 out of 5 stars depends on how you read cards, 17 Nov. 2009
This is a reproduction of The Marseille tarot deck produced by Lo Scarabeo in Italy in the 1700's.

This is a very charming deck with an amazing vintage feel to them, the major Arcana are beautifully designed, however, if like most people you use your cards through intuition rather than memorising their meanings from a book then you may find these cards of no use. The minor Arcana are not pictured the suits are simply shown as the number of each for example the four of wands shows simply four wands.

This is quite good for a starter pack but if you want to learn to use the cards without a book i'd suggest trying the Rider Waite pack


A Dictionary of Dream Symbols: With an Introduction to Dream Psychology
A Dictionary of Dream Symbols: With an Introduction to Dream Psychology

1.0 out of 5 stars Freudian nightmare, 6 Sept. 2009
Deeply disappointed in this book, as you see on the cover it offers an introdution to dream psychology... This introdution is 60 pages long (in a book of 315 pages) and has several too many references to Freud. This continues into the dream symbols section, every other dream symbol has a reference to Freud.

If you are interested in Freuds theories and you are a beginner in dream interpretation then go ahead buy this, in fact contact me and you can have my copy for nothing. But there are far better books out there explaining how to make your own interpretations of your dreams. I personally was sick of this book half way through the introduction, i have looked up a couple of the dream symbols and they do not in any way relate to me.

I don't in anyway want to sound offensive towards the book but i do have a strong negative opinion towards this

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value, 6 Sept. 2009
This review is from: The Dream Pack (Hardcover)
This pack contains a book describing dreamology, incubating dreams,meditation,dream talk, developing your dream memory, drean dictionary and much much more. There are 12 exercises throughout the book to help you stage a dream, develop dream divining, remembering your dreams etc, all the important things you need to know how to interpret your dreams.

Next are the dream cards going into some detail about the major dream influences. These and the dream dictionary don't work for me. Everyone should be exploring their own interpretations of their dreams. someone elses interpretations are unlikely to work for you but as a basic guideline they are ok!

There are two great things about this pack, the dream eye pillow which can be filled with herbs to help bring on a settled sleep or prevent nightmares etc and the dream journal. There is space for 34 dream descriptions and interpretations.

I would say buy this and form your own opinion. This guide doesn't cut it for me but that doesn't mean that it won't suit you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 30 Aug. 2009
This book was published in 1996 but not in the slightest bit outdated.

Not only does this book have a lovely introduction Liz Earle goes into great detail about Natural beauty in history including egyption lips, the wig revolution, war time remedies and much much more.

She follows on with a chapter on getting started, describing useful equipment, storage tips, hygiene hitns, allergy testing, raw materials including descriptions of their benifits, followed by the botanical chapter again listing all the herbs etc and thier benefits.

This takes us to page 74 and the fun begins, from cold cream cleansers, soaps, face masks and packs, scar tissue lotions, antiseptic lotions, aftershaves, moisturisers, anti aging creams and the traditional puffy eye remedy.

This book has everything, some of the remedies are common sense like the previously mentioned puffy eye remedy but this book is a treasure, you can even make your own shampoo

highly recommended


Natural Home Remedies (Guide to MBS S.)
Natural Home Remedies (Guide to MBS S.)
by Liz Bestic
Edition: Hardcover

2.0 out of 5 stars good value, 30 Aug. 2009
This guide is very basic. There is an interesting introduction on the history of natural remedies but other than that its not really worth spending money.

Some examples are remedies for bee stings - bicarbinate of soda, wasp stings - vinegar, jellyfish stings - ammonia and my favourate...."remedies for bruises and sprains - if you have no ice, try a packet of frozen vegetables"

Seriously if you don't know these things then you desperately need to buy this book and maybe some common sense along with it

4.0 out of 5 stars Curious? this book will make up your mind, 30 Aug. 2009
This book is a great starting point for someone who is unsure of following the Wiccan path! But i must be honest and say that it can be a bit of a heavy read!

This book gives a brief description of what Wicca is, where it comes from, why we practice Wicca and how!

There are small sections on the elements, nature, magic, the gods and rituals. Unlike some of the reviewers i don't see how this book can possibly be aimed at Coven Wiccans there is a section about Solitary witchcraft and group witchcraft & thats about all there is on the matter. There are a few small exercises in this book to follow to help make up your mind if this is the path for you.

This book has some great charts and diagrams of the God and Goddess but these are not the simplest to understand. There are also sections on creating rituals and candle magic which again are not written in the most understandable manner which is maybe a good thing because if this book is enough to put you off then Wicca is not for you.

I'd say this book is a teaser and you need to read a lot more than one book to understand Wicca anyway and i'd highly recommend it.

The reason i'm only giving this book 4 stars is because its the first book i read on the subject and before further reading some parts confused me a bit.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not much more then a basic guide, 29 Aug. 2009
This review is from: A Guide To Crystals : (Hardcover)
This book is purely just a guide, going into small descriptions of the main known crystals and there uses, colour healing and meditation but only a page or two on each subject and there isn't anything new in this book that you can't find in any other crystal book.

If you have a real interest in crystals there are far better, more informative books out there but ok for the price!

5.0 out of 5 stars one for the book shelf, 29 Aug. 2009
This is the kind of Tarot book i like.

There are very short descriptions of the card meanings obviously meant as a reference, anyone reading the tarot should be able to make their own interpretations of the cards!

This book is full of spreads and explains how to choose the correct one! There isn't a question that can't be answered using these spreads.

I'd highly recommend it for beginners and experienced readers
