5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful book!, 19 Jan. 2017
This review is from: Viva (Paperback)
An extraordinary book written with clarity and beauty about a friendship that actively continues beyond death. This true account of a physical and spiritual friendship made me smile and sob and sigh. There are wonderful teachings to be gained that bring hope to the sorrow of death and remind us that love transcends all. The writer has a warm, accessible style and tells her story straight from the heart. Read this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great gift for an 11 or 12 year old!, 8 Feb. 2012
Wonderful book filled with everything you would want your daughter to know - family relationships, environmental issues and the love of nature, romantic love, jealousy, and loss, and all bound together in an engaging story that creates a really enjoyable read. The author, Marilyn Barry hits just the right note!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous guide to the spiritual world!, 19 Jan. 2012
A wonderful resource for those beginning their spiritual journey as well as those seasoned travellers who will certainly find something new and inspiring between the covers of this extraordinary book. Although billed as a dictionary it is a fascinating read, good for dipping into and does indeed give lucid descriptions and explanations of all words spiritual, from Abraxus to Zen. It also has an index which cross references, leading the reader into ever more interesting depths.

Elderwoman: Reap the Wisdom, Feel the Power, Embrace the Joy
Elderwoman: Reap the Wisdom, Feel the Power, Embrace the Joy

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Preparation for All Women!, 9 Jan. 2011
As an Interfaith Minister and spiritual teacher, but more importantly, as a woman, I found this book a complete delight.
The reward of elderhood, Van Eyk McCain writes, is "the ultimate spiritual transformation". Honouring the soul, she says, is one of the most significant things the elderwoman can do.

It seems that the autumn of a woman's life is certainly a time of change and loss,and there are also possibilities for adaptation, acceptance and finding delight in simple things of the spirit. This may well be part of the onward journey, with many more things to be discovered. It's an encouraging thought.

Time becomes more precious, better spent and well enjoyed. Change can be powerful both in the new way elderwomen live their lives and also in the way younger women perceive that. Elderwoman is a fabulous guide, not only for women over 50, but for all women.

It is also a call for older women to remember their innate wisdom, reclaim their "quiet, inner heroism" and to live with joy. This book addresses issues that woman don't usually talk about - read it and talk!

The Hidden Gospel: Decoding the Spiritual Message of the Aramaic Jesus

5.0 out of 5 stars The Hidden Gospel on tape is a sacred experience., 12 Dec. 2000
This double cassette set gives you the opportunity to hear and sing the original Aramaic body prayers of Jesus! Dr Neil Douglas-Klotz introduces you to the hidden meaning of the teachings of Jesus, by reavealing the interpretations of the Aramaic language in which Jesus spoke.
The tapes are in eight sections, described as keys. The first key : My Breath is Part of the Holy Spirit, explains the mystical significance of the breath in a way that left me in no doubt that God is my breath.
"From my breath to the air we share to the wind that blows around the planet: Sacred Unity inspires all. All that breathes resides in the Only Being."
Each key offers insight and understanding, new words to chant and different experiences. I particularly enjoyed the third key which is : God Gives Birth Every Moment. Everything is Born in Blessing. This key explores the opening words of the Jesus Prayer and guides us to an understanding of how we have the opportunity to be born anew each day.
The author, in a warm and unassuming voice opens a whole new vision of the Beatitudes. For example he describes the first Beatitude (Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven) as having a possible translation of "Blessedly ripe are those who have only their breath."
Singing the ancient words in the way we are asked to certainly set up a sacred vibration that left me wanting more! By feeling the resonance in my body and observing my physical, emotional and spiritual responses, I believe that Dr Douglas-Klotz offers us something not only deeply inspirational but healing.
Having read Dr Neil Douglas-Klotz's previous book, Prayers of the Cosmos, this was like meeting the man and The Man.
