It's Only Blood - Shattering the Taboo of Menstruation (Paperback): Anna Dahlqvist It's Only Blood - Shattering the Taboo of Menstruation (Paperback)
Anna Dahlqvist; Translated by Alice E. Olsson
R233 R194 Discovery Miles 1 940 Save R39 (17%) In stock

Across the world, 2 billion people experience menstruation, yet menstruation is seen as a mark of shame. We are told not to discuss it in public, that tampons and sanitary pads should be hidden away, the blood rendered invisible. In many parts of the world, poverty, culture and religion collide causing the taboo around menstruation to have grave consequences. Younger people who menstruate are deterred from going to school, adults from work, infections are left untreated. The shame is universal and the silence a global rule. In It's Only Blood Anna Dahlqvist tells the shocking but always moving stories of why and how people from Sweden to Bangladesh, from the United States to Uganda, are fighting back against the shame.

Iman Rappetti
R285 R245 Discovery Miles 2 450 Save R40 (14%) In stock

Iman Rappetti is an award-winning journalist who has been involved in print, radio and television. She worked as a young journalist in South Africa and then abandoned it (along with all her worldly possessions) when she became Muslim. She lived in the Islamic Republic of Iran for two years, where she also worked on a current affairs TV show for the state broadcaster before returning to South Africa and resuming her life here.

She describes herself as `the youngest of five children. One Rasatafarian brother (passed away), one ex-con brother (who can dance the pants off any woman and has a wicked sense of humour), another brother who's a big shot in the marine engineering industry (he makes a mean curry), and a sister who has the thankless task of staying at home and raising the rugrats (she has a way with words, and also makes a kick-ass briyani)'.

In this moving and entertaining memoir, Iman shares stories and what she has learned from her colourful journey through life.

Spiritual Leadership in a Secular Age - Building Bridges Instead of Barriers (Paperback): Edward H Hammett Spiritual Leadership in a Secular Age - Building Bridges Instead of Barriers (Paperback)
Edward H Hammett
R425 R336 Discovery Miles 3 360 Save R89 (21%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Spiritual Leadership in a Secular Age explores the questions: How can we be faithful people of God in a postChristian, postdenominational, postmodern world? and How can we do ministry in, through, and as the church in an increasingly secular world? Author Edward Hammett draws on concepts from the ministries of Jesus and Paul as they ministered among persons unlike themselves during the birthing of the New Testament church. He offers a coaching approach and practical ideas to help leaders and congregations as they struggle to discern how to build bridges instead of barriers with the unchurched.

Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche 1
R400 R253 Discovery Miles 2 530 Save R147 (37%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

A rare, intimate account of a world-renowned Buddhist monk's near-death experience and the life-changing wisdom he gained as a result. 'One of the most generous, beautiful, and essential books I've ever read - thoroughly engaging, so clear, so honest, so courageous and full of wisdom.' George Saunders Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche's experience begins the night he has chosen to embark on a four-year wandering retreat, slipping past the monastery gates. Alone for the first time in his life, he sets out into the unknown. His initial motivation is to step away from his life of privilege and to explore the deepest, most hidden aspects of his being, but what he discovers throughout his retreat - about himself and about the world around us - comes to define his meditation practice and teaching. Just three weeks into his retreat, Rinpoche becomes deathly ill and his journey begins in earnest through this near-death experience. Moving, beautiful and suffused with local colour, In Love with the World is the story of two different kinds of death: that of the body and that of the ego, and how we can bridge these two experiences to live a better and more fulfilling life. Rinpoche's skilful and intimate account of his search for the self is a demonstration of how we can transform our dread of dying into joyful living.

Mans leef in ’n wreld waar die rolle van manlikheid so verander het dat dit met tye vir hulle moeilik is om te weet wie hulle werklik is en wat van hulle verwag word. Die eise wat ’n gewone dag aan mans stel kan soms selfs die mees ervare individu laat twyfel aan sy bevoegdhede. Die boek skep ’n bewustheid by mense, en nie net mans nie, van die alledaagse en mees algemene lewensuitdagings waarvoor mans te staan kom, en probeer hulle toerus met relevante inligting wat hulle sal help om meer doeltreffende, emosioneel gelukkige en vervulde lewens te lei. Die boek word verdeel in verhoudings- en lewensfase-uitdagings, verslawing, gemoedsprobleme en traumatiese ervarings.

Soul Truth is a journey of self-discovery, self-awareness and awakening. It reveals universal truths that apply to all, from the lifeless to the living. Above all it is the revelation that as a human, your greatest foe is your mind and its treachery, and how its purpose is to hold and hide you from your destiny. Unknowingly we are dominated by the deceptive fears and desires of our mind's dark influence. We become addicted to our mind's created needs. We become victims of our poorly constructed and self-destructive choices; with this we lose touch with ourselves and our truth. Furthermore, in the hope of finding meaning to escape from the pressures of our chaotic lives, we chase the elaborate and convincing external 'red herrings' the mind deceptively scatters around us to distract us from our Soul. The purpose of Soul Truth is to help the reader unlock and reveal the truth of the game of life' to expose 'the illusion' we have all been deceived into purchasing. This is achieved through a greater understanding of how the unseen consciousness 'mechanisms' of which we are both comprised and part of, operate and function. Soul Truth is not a religious, esoteric or ethereal quest. It is a practical approach to helping you reveal your purpose and destiny.

Prayers from the Heart - Prayers for help and blessings, prayers of thankfulness and love (Paperback): Lorna Byrne Prayers from the Heart - Prayers for help and blessings, prayers of thankfulness and love (Paperback)
Lorna Byrne 1
R195 R160 Discovery Miles 1 600 Save R35 (18%) Shipped within 4 - 8 working days

Lorna Byrne has helped millions of people around the world by calling on them to realise that they each have a guardian angel and by showing them that can ask for help from God and the angels. Lorna is often asked for help on how to ask and how to pray, so in this new book she gives detailed advice and also includes prayers for different occasions. She says: 'Sometimes our prayers are so focussed on asking for things, we forget to listen out for what God, the angels and our love ones are trying to tell us. God always has this abundance of blessings prepared for us, small blessings and great blessings. He wants to give every individual great life-changing blessings, beginning when that individual is born. God will do everything to make it happen, but He will never infringe on an individual's free will, which a good reason for us to engage intelligent conversation with him - listening as well as asking - in prayer.'

The Gospel According to the Beatles (Hardcover): Steve Turner The Gospel According to the Beatles (Hardcover)
Steve Turner
R415 R336 Discovery Miles 3 360 Save R79 (19%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Renowned British music journalist and author Steve Turner surveys the religious and spiritual influence of the Beatles, the band that changed the history of music forever. With new interviews, never-before-published material, and fresh insights, Turner helps the reader understand the religious and spiritual ideas and ideals that influenced the music and lives of the Beatles and helps us see how the Fab Four influenced our own lives and culture. Topics discussed include the religious upbringing of John, Paul, George, and Ringo; the backlash in the United States after John Lennon's "The Beatles are more popular than Jesus" comment; the dabbling in Eastern religion; the use of drugs to attempt to enter a higher level of consciousness; and the overall legacy that the Beatles and their music have left. While there is no religious system that permanently anchored the Beatles or their music, they did leave a gospel, Turner concludes: one of love, peace, personal freedom, and the search for transcendence.

R333 R272 Discovery Miles 2 720 Save R61 (18%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Cape Town is one of the most beautiful cities in the world - often described as a kind of heaven on earth. But for the majority of its inhabitants it is hell. Ghettoes are everywhere, and for those living in Manenberg - a coloured township on the Cape Flats, purpose-built by the apartheid government as part of its forced removal plan - life is just as marginal today as it was during apartheid. The main differences now are the rampant drug use and widespread gang presence. No Neutral Ground is the gripping account of Pete Portal's move from London to Manenberg, of addicts and gangsters meeting Jesus and being transformed, and how he went from living with a heroin addict to helping establish a church community - and all the heartbreak and failure along the way. This is a story of mighty works of God, as well as relapse, hopelessness and despair; the miraculous and the mundane, heaven and hell, all balanced on a knife edge. Offering searing insight and an inspiring vision of faith, Pete asks why anyone would choose this way of life, if giving up our lives for others is worth it - and what the church could become if we were willing to risk it all to reach the forgotten and the lost.
