As an Anglican priest and former Priest-in-Ordinary to the Queen, a lecturer in Buddhism, and a devoted walker, Adam Ford is an inspiring guide with a refreshingly eclectic viewpoint. Contemplating the concept of a purposeful walking, he applies the notion of mindfulness to walks ranging from a simple journey to work to a personal odyssey in the Australian outback. Exploring the idea of the walk as both medium and metaphor, and considering ideas of pilgrimage alongside the notion of the walk in literature, he draws on his personal experience of both spirituality and walking. This book celebrates and enchances those moments: both for the hardened hiker and those who like to contemplate past walks from the comfort of their armchair.

Be Happy: A Journal is here to help you find sustainable happiness in the well of yourself. With a focus on the power of choice, follow the prompts in this beautifully designed journal to find and follow your unique path to success. Happiness is a transient emotional state. We frequently think of it as a place we're trying to get to, but happiness is more a constant process rather than a destination. Prompts in the Be Happy: A Journal will ask you to reflect on the choices you are currently making versus the choices you will be prompted to write about and explore. Sometimes our choices are unconscious, and it's not until we are presented with alternatives that we realize we've been sabotaging ourselves all along. We must think about the daily choices that determine (a) the emotional states we want to embody, and (b) the personal values we can connect with along the way. If you're a fan of "fast"-not necessarily in the quick-fix kind of way, but in a this-fits-easily-into-my-day kind of way-then this journal (and journey!) is for you. A hardworking set of tools that you can access on your own terms, in your own time. This journal is organized into nine sections, each one asking you to choose an important part of living a full life, and determine how you may or may not have been doing so thus far. As you go through the prompts, you may find that you are following the right path. If that is the case, think deeper on how you can push yourself further; there's always room for improvement. If this has not been your path, use the prompts and hardworking tools to map a new path to success, and make a deep commitment to changing your way of thinking. The prompts in this journal will focus on diving deep into your personal power, the power you have in choosing emotional states and values that help you to live a full life based on what's important to you deep down. You'll be encouraged to put these lessons to work and look at ways you can cement positivity into your everyday life. After taking time to look inward while answering these prompts and identifying which parts of your life you'd like to change, focus your energy toward making an actual difference. Hard to hold on to, difficult to find, and some days, not much more than a memory, happiness is still a part of us and what we as humans seek out, even when it eludes us. Luckily, thriving is a psychological state that doesn't just rely on positive feelings like happiness, but on the daily choices we make. Want to live a rich, vital, fulfilling life? Choose your focus. Choose your actions. Congratulations on acknowledging that you can get more out of life. The happiness habits you cultivate will show you how. Let's go!

Telementation is an ancient meditative art form, the true nature of our deep inner self, and the most productive way to carry out the law of attraction, Christian mysticism, or Zen Buddhism. It is virtually unknown to modern people, but has been recognised by shamans, Zen Buddhists, mystics, and philosophers as the ultimate power in the universe, which is possessed by everyone. This is a short instruction manual on how to carry out the law of attraction with great ease and productivity, by directing one's inner feelings in a specific way. Many students attempting this become frustrated due to their great efforts and poor results. In "Telementation", this is remedied by focusing on feelings rather than beliefs, and the law of attraction is then achieved with Zen-like ease and dramatic success. Telementation consequently creates a revolution in one's life that ends nearly all personal problems, as it brings a person back to their innate, inalienable greatness and poetical inner peace. "Telementation" is also particularly productive for those who want a simple guidebook on how to carry out Buddhist meditation or Christian spirituality, for those who have had trouble attaining ecstatic spiritual and religious experience through meditation, and for those unable to overcome depression by conventional methods.

The No.1 New York Times Bestseller 'Reminds us that the mind is the greatest mystery in the universe' Yuval Noah Harari, Guardian, Books of the Year Could psychedelic drugs change our worldview? Join Michael Pollan on a journey to the frontiers of the human mind. Diving deep into an extraordinary world - from shamans and magic mushroom hunts to the pioneering labs mapping our brains - and putting himself forward as a guinea-pig, Michael Pollan has written a remarkable history of psychedelics and a compelling portrait of the new generation of scientists fascinated by the implications of these drugs. How to Change Your Mind is a report from what could very well be the future of consciousness. 'A sweeping and often thrilling chronicle of the history of psychedelics, all interwoven with Pollan's adventures as a psychedelic novice.

In terms of the psychedelic wave, the book is the big kahuna, the Big Bang moment for a movement that is gathering force' John McKenna, Irish Times 'Entertaining and engrossing' Paul Laity, Financial Times 'Deeply absorbing, wise and beautifully written' Mick Brown, Literary Review 'An astounding book' Andrew Sullivan, New York Magazine
