“Die lang man sonder skaduwee,” so het die oumense gepraat as hulle die grondpaaie beskryf het wat oor die rug van vlaktes loop soos linte wat plase en veeposte en dorpe aan mekaar bind. Dit was ’n raaisel wat hulle vir mekaar gevra het om ’n stram geselskap aan die gang te kry.
Met diť raaisel begin Antoinette Pienaar, Afrikaanse sangeres, aktrise en radiopersoonlikheid, haar nuwe boek nŠ die verskyning van Kruidjie roer my, haar boek oor Karookruie wat sy plek as ’n klassieke werk in Afrikaans ingeneem het. Sy werk reeds vir jare in die Karoo saam met oom Johannes Willemse, legendariese Griekwa-medisyneman. Oom Johannes leer haar hoe om Karookruie te gebruik om mense se lywe en siele te genees en van heinde en ver kom besoekers om hier by hulle gesond te kom raak.
In Die lang man sonder skaduwee sit Antoinette haar roeping as geneser voort. Vol begrip en deernis word Karookruie ingespan om allerlei kwale te genees. Maar nou ondersoek sy ook die genesende krag wat in die ou stories, raaisels en rympies van die Griekwa-mense skuil, want dikwels het ’n fisieke probleem ’n emosionele oorsprong en is dit stories wat die hart kan genees. Die langman sonder skaduwee is volksbesit: waardevolle inheemse kennis liefdevol opgeteken vir lees en herlees.

""If your 'weighty thinking' does not change, then even if you lose weight you'll retain an overwhelming subconscious urge to gain it back. It's less important how quickly you lose weight, and more important how holistically you lose weight; you want your mind, your emotions, and your body to all 'lose weight.' Weight that disappears from your body but not from your soul is simply recycling outward for a while " "but is almost certain to return. It's self-defeating, therefore, to struggle to drop excess weight unless " "you are also willing to drop the thought-forms that initially produced it and now hold it in place."" -- Marianne Williamson What is the connection between spirituality and weight loss? Best-selling author Marianne Williamson is about to answer that question for you in her groundbreaking new book, bringing you 21 spiritual lessons to help you surrender your weight forever. These lessons form a holistic paradigm for weight loss, addressing the spiritual, emotional, and psychological elements involved in what Williamson refers to as "conscious weight loss." If you are a food addict, a compulsive eater, or someone who for any reason sees food as the enemy, this book is for you. "A Course in Weight Loss" addresses the true causal root of your weight-loss issues: a place within you where you have forgotten your divine perfection. This forgetfulness has confused not only your mind but also your body, making you reach for that which cannot sustain you . . . and reject that which does. As your mind reclaims its spiritual intelligence, your body will reclaim its natural intelligence as well. The 21 lessons in this book will take you on a deep, sacred journey. One step at a time, you will learn to shift your relationship with yourself--and your body--from one of fear to one of love. And you will begin to integrate the various parts of yourself--mind, body, and spirit--to become, once again, and in all ways, the beautiful and peaceful person you were created to be. As Williamson writes: "When it comes to your enjoyment of eating, your best days are not behind you but ahead of you " So get ready to begin a new relationship with food . . . and with yourself.
Why do we spend so much time indoors, which is not our natural habitat? Why have trends such as forest-bathing become so popular? The answer to the last question lies in the proven benefits we obtain from our connection with nature - from increased productivity to feelings of happiness and an enhanced sense of wellbeing. For millions of years, humans developed in natural environments, in close contact with sunlight, vegetation and fresh air. But most of us spend 80-90% of our time indoors far from the environments for which we are naturally suited and in which we evolved. Skogluft's mission is to bring a natural living environment back into your home and workplace. Based on years of research data on the impact between nature and people, gathered together by a Norwegian mechanical engineer, Jorn Viumdal, Skogluft reveals how installing a wall of easily available plants in your home environment can dramatically improve health, strengthen the immune system and increase productivity. The plants are easily available, cheap to buy and simple to look after. Here is a low-tech solution to a problem created by our increasing dependence on a world dominated by high technology. Learn the simple techniques to beautify your world and create air you can live with all year around and experience the health and wellness effects for yourself.

A new edition of the classic practical manual for utilizing the chakra system as a body/mind interface for effective energetic healing Drawing on his own profound healing experience as a young man, Martin Brofman developed a system of healing that effectively and seamlessly blends Western psychology and Eastern philosophies: the Body Mirror System. He explains how the chakra system connects to both mind and body to form a body/mind interface, allowing us to read the physical body as a mirror of the consciousness within, track the route from symptom to cause, and then work on releasing the causes on all levels. Brofman shows how specific tensions or symptoms on the physical level reflect corresponding tensions in one's consciousness about specific issues in life--the inner cause to the outer symptom. The author explains how healing the symptom needs to involve not only releasing the tension on the physical level, but also letting go of the stressful way of interacting with the environment. Thus, the process of healing always implies a process of transformation. Within the concepts of his Body Mirror System, Brofman explores the chakras and their role in the body, including their associated vibrations, parts of the body, senses, layers of the aura, and areas of consciousness. He explains how to clear and connect the chakras, how to connect to the cosmos through the chakras, and how engaging with thought forms, time travel, and past lives can assist in healing sessions. Discussing the healing of others as well as self-healing, Brofman describes how to heal with chakras, thought forms, white light, and love, and how to perform distance healing. He provides practical energy exercises and chakra meditations, allowing the reader to imminently experience the healing energy in their bodies and prepare for a healing session. He also includes color reference guides, such as a chakra healing chart. Deeply examining the multilayered elements of the healing process, including transformation, this classic healing guide serves as a practical introduction to energy healing as well as a healer's tutorial and reference book.
