More than just a warm and comforting drink, tea has medicinal properties that are widely underused in North America. Common herbs, spices, fruits, and barks have been scientifically proven to help relieve pain, menopause symptoms, high blood pressure, insomnia, stress, and digestive angst. When taken preventatively, certain herbs in tea can help fight off cancer cells, heart disease, and even Alzheimer's disease and fibromyalgia. By learning about what these various natural ingredients are capable of and how they work, readers can begin to treat many ailments with what grows in their gardens plants that have been used in eastern medicine for thousands of years. The Good Living Guide to Medicinal Tea invites readers into a world of medicinal plants, instructs on the specific healing properties of each, matches them to ten common North American health disorders, and provides simple tea recipes readers can make in their own homes. Late Japanese author Okakura Kakuzo has been famously quoted as saying, "Tea began as a medicine and grew into a beverage." The Good Living Guide to Medicinal Tea encourages readers to turn their favorite drink back into medicine and outlines exactly how to accomplish this. With the help of beautiful photographs and an easy dialogue, Jennifer Browne clearly explains to readers how teatime can garner impressive health benefits.

FT BOOK OF THE MONTH 'A wondrous book' - Alain de Botton 'A wholly new perspective to finding balance and success' - Nir Eyal 'I highly reccommend it' - Chief experience officer, Publicis Group and author of How to Speak Machine: Laws of Design for a Digital Age Smash your targets * Annihilate the competition * Choose your battles Have you ever wondered why we use metaphors derived from war and conflict so often at work? What impact does that have on how we conduct business, our culture, our stress levels and ultimately our ability to succeed? For too long war has cast a spell on how we think about business, with negative implications for us, the companies we work in and on the planet. Drawing on the philosophy of Wing Tsun, an ancient Chinese martial art based on the idea that fighting is fundamentally bad, John Vincent and Julian Hitch challenge some of our deepest-held assumptions and show us how to unlearn many ideas and behaviours that are preventing our personal and professional growth. Instead of embracing force as the long accepted route to success, Winning Not Fighting offers as a transformational guide to work and life by inspiring positivity, simplicity and focus. "Unites business and martial arts in a realistic, practical and intelligent way. It's capitalism, but not as we know it." - Benjamin Zephaniah

Until the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls in 1946, there was little known about The Essenes; a brotherhood of holy men and women living together within a community over two thousand years ago. The Essenes considered themselves to be a separate people--not because of external signs like skin colour, hair colour, but because of the illumination of their inner life and their knowledge of the hidden mysteries of nature unknown to other men.The Gate of Light is based on Lars Muhl's lifelong search for God, it doesn't claim any absolute truths but sets out to provide a practice based on Essene teachings that allows us to look at how we judge ourselves and how we live in the world.He asks:What motivates us?How do we create a balance between thoughts, words and actions?How do we align ourselves in relation to our higher self and become the universal light beings we are meant to be?The Essenes understood that everything is interactively connected and that everything is energy. For them, God was the name for the highest form of awareness, something omnipresent and, if a human wished to learn how then they could communicate with this ever present energy and through this communication humans could realize their full potential. Drawing on this ancient knowledge Lars presents a complete practice to help us recognize and answer the above questions. He particularly looks at: Grief and Happiness, Balance and Awareness, Selflessness, Boredom and Renunciation, Loneliness, Gratitude, Silence and Thoughtfulness.

Mzansi Zen is an affectionate, challenging and witty blend of stories, commentaries and poems about life in present-day South Africa, threaded through a day in an actual Zen meditation retreat. The authorís familiar and authoritative Zen style inspires us into taking up this life with both hands, calling us into an intimacy that is already beneath our feet. Read it. It will change your mind and open your heart. Mzansi is hurting. Mzansi is dancing. This land is a constant tumble of brilliance and disappointment, of beauty, courage and heartache. How do we live with all this? This is our lifeís question, one we need to confront if our presence here is to have any meaning. The Way of Zen asks of us to look our situation in the eye; beyond our opinions, arguments and fears about it all, into things exactly as they are. It takes courage, it takes sincerity and it takes a great love. But this openhearted awakeness allows us to step out of our separate corners into our natural connectedness, into our inherent oneness with this world and its people. Now we find ourselves standing in each othersí shoes, singing each otherís songs and weeping each otherís tears. From this intimacy, compassion and wisdom arise, and a generosity of spirit. Whatever we think of how the country is being run or where it is heading, this is our life. Let us live it fully. Then we can stand here with our head held high. We can respond rather than react. We can open our closed fist. And if we choose to participate in public life, we do so from a wider, more forgiving view. In this way our time together will be rich beyond measure Ė sometimes beautiful, sometimes fearful, always alive. Mzansi Zen is the third book in the series; it follows in the footsteps of Stoep Zen (2008) and Zen Dust (2012).
"This is a way of putting my life out there, because if I were to write a memoir, there'd be five volumes before I got to The Beatles. So I'm going at it this way, through photographs and quotes. And this is, I feel, a better way for me to do it." - Ringo Starr "Ringo's picture book, Ringo in book form. The essence of Ringo." - David Lynch Another Day In The Life is introduced and narrated by Ringo Starr, with forewords by legendary movie director David Lynch and rock photographer Henry Diltz. Ringo shows us the world as seen through a Starr's eyes, in more than 500 observational photographs and rare images from the archives, and an original text of nearly 13,000 words. From Los Angeles to Tokyo and everywhere in between, Ringo's photographs celebrate his life in music and offer a glimpse behind the scenes. Many are taken during historic events, such as Ringo's acceptance of a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and his return to New York's Plaza Hotel, 50 years after The Beatles first visited the USA. Another Day In The Life, Ringo Starr's 184-page monograph featuring Paul McCartney, Joe Walsh and a host of All-Starr friends, is captioned throughout with an original commentary. Meditative, witty and always engaging, Ringo reflects on a legendary life in music. RINGOBOOK.COM GENESIS-PUBLICATIONS.COM

Exploring meditation traditions from around the world, Silverman and Stumpf invite readers to try thirty different meditations and then record their experiences after the practice.

The National Institute of Health has written that meditation increases activity in the parasympathetic nervous system, which is associated with a state of relaxation. A study at the University of Wisconsin in Madison found that "mindfulness meditation" improves both our mood and the strength of our immune system. There are dozens more scientific and peer-reviewed studies that agree: meditation can change your life for the better. Beginning is often where the greatest challenge lies. This is the book to help you explore what all the meditation buzz is about!

Today - as repeated attempts to 'fix ourselves and our lives' fail - many of us face unprecedented fears about the future, struggle with unspeakable life tragedies, and sink under the belief that certain lives do not matter in our society. Others confront our epidemic of anxiety with fierce resistance, or 'the fight to be right', criticizing anyone and everyone just to end up stuck. In the face of such pervasive human suffering, New York Times best-selling author and legendary life coach Iyanla Vanzant challenges us: What if it's not them - what if it's you? What if you need to 'get over it' - and get over yourself? Because no matter how much we would like to blame people and circumstances beyond our control, the truth is staggeringly simple: anything and everything we experience is a function of what and how we think. In Get Over It! Iyanla offers a unique spiritual technology called 'thought therapy', a process that harnesses proven spiritual tools with the science of neuroplasticity. The 42 prayers and affirmations, and complementary energy-clearing tools at the heart of the thought therapy process are designed to neutralize and eliminate the unconscious, unproductive, soul-destroying dominant negative thought patterns (DNTPs) and discordant emotional energies, allowing you to get to the root cause of your personal suffering, and make life-affirming choices. If you're ready to break free of your ego's resistance and willing to face yourself, willing to change, and willing to heal and grow - then now's the time to Get Over It!

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.'
