Two weeks ago, I was seated on the floor of a local bookstore, surrounded by heaps of books and searching for any kind of help with my pesky diagnosis of autoimmune thyroiditis. Id found books on simple low or high thyroid problems, but couldnt find anything dealing with the new issue of autoimmune diseases.
When asked, many of my friends have told me they have fibromyalgia, Hashimotos, Addisons, or some other autoimmune problem, but when I press them about diets, supplements, or other alternative advice, theyve all shared that the only source for answers has been experimentation and word-of-mouth solutions.

If you are an animal lover, the stories in Wisdom of the Animals will touch your heart. If youve ever wondered about the way psychics, particularly animal communicators, work, the book is almost a step-by-step travelogue for a journey into that kind of thinking.
The book answers the enticing question, "If animals could talk, what would they say?" Whether you believe that the authors actually communicate with animals or not, asking the question should lead any reader down a fascinating path. Exploring how animals experience our treatment of them and the world around them seems a valid extension of personal spiritual growth work.
LOVE AND THE

Words are powerful entities. Sometimes they are mirrors that capture time and being; other times they are the beholders of wisdom, magic, and beauty; and, at still other times, they transform and create the world. In the book Love and the World, words facilitate a deep transformation: they touch the innermost part of the self, turning it into consciousness and creating a new way of perceiving ourselves and everything and everyone around us.
The author, psychoanalyst Robert Sardello, defines a new psychology: "Spiritual psychology is an active practice that develops embodied, conscious soul life to make that life open and receptive to the spiritual realms. This is done as an act of love towards ourselves, others, and the world."

How does one review a book thats so lyrical it could have been set to music in its entirety?
Ms. Krulikowski, a local author and frequent New Times contributor, traveled to India to help prepare an ashram for a dedication ceremony, to write about that event, and to complete final chapters on a biography or so she thought. She quickly discovered that Spirit had other ideas about the purpose and meaning of her trip. Her insights, written as a series of spiritual essays, are poetically captured in this wonderful book.
