1. Falling into Grace: Insights on the End of Suffering 2. Adya on Oprah [Updated July 9, 2014 ]

Adyashanti asks us to let go of our struggles with life and open to the full promise of spiritual awakening: the end of delusion and the discovery of our essential being. In his fifteen years as a spiritual teacher, he has found that the simpler the teaching, the greater its power to change our lives. In Falling into Grace, Adyashanti shares what he considers fundamental insights that will “spark a revolution in the way we perceive life,” through a progressive inquiry exploring:

*The human dilemma — the concept of a separate self and the choice to stop believing the thoughts that perpetuate suffering
*”Taking the backward step” into the pure potential of the present moment
* Why spiritual awakening can be a disturbing process
* Intimacy and availability — feeling absolute union with every part of our experience
*True autonomy — the unique expression of our own sense of freedom

In the same way that we fall into the arms of a loved one or drop our heads on the pillow at night, we can surrender into the beauty and truth of who and what we really are. Falling into Grace is a book that gets to the core of why we suffer. It is Adyashanti’s invitation “to be taken by a moment of grace and fall into a sense of life when it is not separate from you, when life is actually an expression of something indefinable, mysterious, and immense.”

Fast Road to Happiness: Journey Into Now by Marilou McIntyre


FAST ROAD TO HAPPINESS: JOURNEY INTO NOW

For years she has traveled to other countries and across the U.S. teaching and lecturing on Spiritual Development and healing. Her quest for better methods of healing opened within her the ability to create conscious past life regressions, without hypnosis, for individuals, families and groups seeking the release of various maladies that disrupted their lives. She has demonstrated and documented the success of this method to enable anyone with an open mind to accept its amazing benefits. She continues to serve and fill the needs of others. Twice she overcame cancer and is now happy and healthy-the wish she has for everyone. She continues to fulfill her destiny and demonstrates love for all.

SYNOPSIS: FAST ROAD TO HAPPINESS A true story for Self-Help by MARILOU McINTYRE, DD The basis of my non-fiction book, Fast Road To Happiness, explains benefits of “conscious past-life regressions,” without hypnosis, to heal and release phobias, traumas, and behavioral problems. I created this method of treating people over twenty-five years ago and find it gives solutions to some of life’s problems. The case studies reinforce the importance of healing the present through conscious regression. There is also a need to understand and implement the principles of reincarnation and karma. The book delves into this scientifically and professionally. To my knowledge, I am the only person using this technique for families, individuals and groups. Reincarnation is often the mystery of life and the missing link that explains things modern psychology and psychiatry cannot. I do not try to convince everyone that reincarnation is true; just those individuals open to seeking answers modern medicine cannot or will not explore. It helps people of all races and cultural backgrounds around the world, for mankind has similar problems. These problems manifest mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually.

The hundreds of conscious regressions I have conducted around the world enable me to serve others and give explanations and guidance that relieve conditions of loneliness, depression and erratic behavior that haunt people. Throughout the book are solutions to problems that can be healed. The past life causes of conditions and how one can regress are clearly given. It will appeal to anyone, not just the Baby-Boomer, the spiritually minded, married or single person with or without children. It is emotional and mental food for those with an array of addictions–whether the health conscious individual or seeker of spirituality or success, the appeal is endless. More and more people are looking for self-improvement and solutions to problems in their lives and families.

This is a “How-To” book to help one achieve happiness and success in this life by gaining insights and awareness of problems from the past, recognizing them and healing them. It is a road map for life here and hereafter, and ultimate happiness.

The Love Letters: Saint Francis and Saint Clare of Assisi Meet Pope Francis by Bruce Davis (Author) [Updated July 8, 2014]

Who is Pope Francis and where is he leading the Church? To understand the impact of Pope Francis and his inspiration to the Catholic Church, indeed people of all religions, we turn to the two saints who are his inspiration, Saint Francis and Saint Clare of Assisi and the great love of their spirituality.

Eight hundred years ago when the Church had fallen into scandal and hard times, Saint Francis and Saint Clare lifted the Church to new life, new beginnings. Today the Church suffers the same crises. Today Pope Francis is looking at the heart full spirituality of Saint Francis and Saint Clare to lift the Church with less pomp and ceremony and more embracing the poor and unwanted. The Love Letters is the love story of Francis and Clare and the challenge for Pope Francis and the world to discover the same love in our hearts, our neighbor, nature, and all creation. The Love Letters is historical fiction. What if Saint Francis and Saint Clare were to meet Pope Francis? What would be their thoughts, dreams and hopes for a new Church?

The Love Letters is the mystical love discovered by two of the world’s greatest mystics long ago asking who is the new Pope Francis? Can he rebuild the Church into a living Church, a church less concerned with rules and order and more about forgiveness and compassion? In the silence of our hearts, in giving to those in need, Saint Francis, Saint Clare, and Pope Francis offer a new vision for us all to become instruments of true peace and joy.

Bruce Davis, Ph.D. has pursued the footsteps of Saint Francis and Saint Clare for many years. For twelve years he and his wife, Ruth, lived in Assisi, Italy the historic home of these remarkable saints. There they began the Assisi Retreat Center which was awarded one of the top ten meditation centers in the world by Travel Leisure Magazine and CNN. Recently, Bruce and Ruth opened Silent Stay, a new retreat center near Napa, California. Bruce is the author of several books including Monastery Without Walls, The Magical Child Within You, and Simple Peace-The Spiritual Life of Saint Francis of Assisi.

Saint Francis and Saint Clare of Assisi Meet Pope Francis – Bruce Davis, Ph.D. was trained as a psychologist but discovered early that true happiness is not possible without a meaningful spiritual life. Through the years he traveled and lived in many cultures in different parts of the world. But it was in Assisi, Italy, the historic home of Saint Francis and Saint Clare, that he found a peace and inner path which seemed universal in its language and presence.

In Assisi, pilgrims from every part of the world, of all religions find a spirituality that speaks of simple peace. After years of bringing groups to Assisi, Bruce and his wife, Ruth, decided to live in Assisi. In the spirit of Saint Francis, they created The Assisi Retreat Center with altars to all the world’s major religions. Their center was given an official blessing by Pope John Paul. The Assisi Retreat Center was listed as one of the top ten meditation retreats in the world by Travel and Leisure Magazine.

More recently CNN listed the center again as one of the top ten meditation centers in the world. After many years of leading retreats, Bruce found the main ingredients for personal transformation included spending time in silence, nature, and heartfulness meditation. The peace and quiet of silence helps people to discover an inner presence in the heart that is lost by many in our busy world. Ruth has created a movement practice called Sacred Movement Ritual which is prayer through movement. Since creating the Assisi Retreat Center, Bruce and Ruth have started Silent Stay, a retreat center near Napa, California.

Bruce is the author of several books including: The Magical Child Within You, The Heart of Healing, Monastery Without Walls, My Little Flowers, The Calling of Joy, and Simple Peace-The Spiritual Life of St. Francis of Assisi. Bruce is also a frequent contributor to the Huffington Post. The Love Letters hopes to support the remarkable events happening with new Pope Francis, the Church, indeed the world, so many can come to know this love including its humility, service, and grace.
