In addition to being an amusing story, Helliwell's work is filled with information about nature spirits or elementals. For anyone planning a trip to the sacred sites of Ireland, the text offers nuggets as precious as the pot of gold that the Leprechaun holds at the end of the rainbow.
Foreword Reviews Book of the Year Finalist: Body, Mind & Spirit Nautilus Silver: Death & Dying/Grief and Loss IPPY Silver: New Age/Mind-Body-Spirit Change Maker is Rebecca Austill Clausen’s story of her discovery that she could communicate with her brother after he died. Following this realization, a world she never imagined opened up to her—even as she doubted her sanity and feared she would lose the respect of her colleagues, as well as the love and support of her family. Austill Clausen struggled with how her spiritual awakening and eventual spiritual transformation could mesh with the practical everyday world—the one where she had a rapidly growing rehabilitation business to run, and where she was known as a knowledgeable, science-based expert in the field of occupational therapy. Each chapter of Change Maker explores spiritual beliefs and understanding, includes an original black-and-white illustration by Micki McAllister, and ends with an “Illumination”—guidance, suggestions, encouragement, and inspiration for readers who wish to pursue their own spiritual journey. The end result is a book that blends the best of memoir, self-help, new-age philosophy, and inspiration.
One Woman's Search for Enchantment in a Modern World
Author: Signe Pike
Category: Biography & Autobiography
In search of something to believe in once more, Signe Pike left behind a career in Manhattan to undertake a magical journey-literally. In a sweeping tour through Mexico, England, Ireland, Scotland, and beyond, she takes readers to dark glens and abandoned forests, ancient sacred sites, and local pubs, seeking people who might still believe in the elusive beings we call faeries. As Pike attempts to connect with the spirit world-and reconnect with her sense of wonder and purpose-she comes to view both herself and the world around her in a profoundly new light. Captivating, full of heart, and unabashedly whimsical, Faery Tale is more than a memoir-it's the story of rekindling that spark of belief that makes even the most skeptical among us feel like a child again.
• Explores the hierarchy of elemental beings as well as Christ elemental beings, social elementals, and machine elementals • Explains how elementals inhabit the etheric space that houses our emotions, feelings, and thoughts and how they carry the emotional level of the world • Shows how the author learned to make personal contact with the elementals and shares his experiences as well as the elemental world’s urgent call for help We all live in the realm of elemental beings. They permeate our souls, our thoughts, our feelings, and they co-create the world around us, yet we are often completely unaware of them. They, however, are eager to be perceived and acknowledged by us because their future and ours are fundamentally connected. Elementals act as carriers of the emotional level of the world, and Thomas Mayer reveals how he learned to develop and fine-tune his sense of perception to make direct personal contact with them. Providing insight into the elemental hierarchy, from the low workers to the masters and the elemental kings, he portrays Christ elemental beings, social elementals, and machine elementals as well. He also explores the adversarial forces like Lucifer and Ahriman that access the elemental world through the subconscious of humans and seek to destroy our elemental friends. Through sharing his encounters with fairies, dwarves, giants, and others, the author reveals their urgent call for help, an entreaty to anchor the elemental beings again in the awareness of humankind through recognition, acknowledgment, and conscious connection. Let us support the elementals in their crucial, life-giving work, through which they in turn support us in preserving the Earth we live on.

Since Carol-la’s first book, Ode to Peanut M&M’s, Carol-la continues to meander through the ruins of her memories and it is a bittersweet surrender. At times, Tibet is fresh and untouched by forgetfulness. A recent trip to Ireland was beckoned by a leprechaun, who met Carol-la on a Sky Burial site in Tibet, before she met Tsedor-la. Her poetry writing is her means to pursue the unknown and make it visible. She speaks of her path between the veil of living and dying and transcending grief. Her book is a legacy of who she is today.

Pilgrimage to Nowhere: Coming of Age (1956-59)is the story of Nick Pappas, born an American citizen in Greece on the eve of World War II. From the cradle, he knew the horrors and deprivation of war. He saw heroism and treachery, survival and death. Then, in 1946, he arrived, a repatriated citizen, at Ellis Island with his aging father, shell-shocked mother, and older brother, Paul. Raised in Chicago's Greek ghetto, Nick is the eternal immigrant – with one foot in Greece and the other in America. He becomes a moral rebel, unwilling to join his brother's academic crowd or the wayward, delinquent crowd, seeking a security of his own, without conformity, the usual price for security. In 1956, now a drop-out from high school, Nick is talked into joining the Air Force and the rebel becomes an Air Policeman, the symbol of authority in the occupied lands of the Philippines. He meets and eventually falls in love with a native Filipino, Helena. When his actions impact on others, the rebel learns that there is always some price to pay. The adventures of this young man, coming of age in a foreign land, become a moral pilgrimage. AUTHOR BIO: Pete was born an American citizen in war-torn Greece and came to America in 1946. He was an airman, restaurateur, even candidate for Congress, but always a rebel. He wrote with the logic of his Greek homeland and the rebellion of his transplanted soul. Pete died 11/2/99.
This is both a remarkable journey through sacred India, and a pilgrimage to the immortal self. With his ever inexorable determination to pursue his highest path, Jack Haas visits many holy areas within the subcontinent of India, and communes with numerous masters who have passed from this plane, but who remain in the subtle realm to assist mankind in its growth towards freedom and eternity. These include Krishna, Guru Nanak, Ramana Maharishi, and Shiva himself. Within the pages of this book Haas describes his own evolution towards an expanded, unlimited consciousness as well as his unique relationships with many aspects of the divine feminine, including Mother Mary, Sophia, Parvati, Gauri, Kali, Saraswati, Durga, and Gaia. Haas' path eventually leads him to the absolute union of spirit and flesh, and to the inextinguishable Tao running through all of life.
While Max Benjamin is a respected family doctor, he is frustrated by the limits imposed on him by general practice and worried about the questionable behaviour of the practice's senior partner, Doctor Lew Forbes. Serena Benjamin is a loving wife and devoted mother, but increasingly, she is unhappy with domesticity and troubled by persistent headaches. Max, hoping to find answers, feels drawn to Hindu spirituality and, after a meeting with Guru Sri Bhajananda at a Hindu festival, is invited to his ashram in India. While there, with Guruji's guidance, Max's understanding of life expands, as he is taught new ways of thinking and shown new ways of being. Back in England, however, Serena's attempts to add some excitement to her weary, suburban life have serious consequences, which will eventually lead her, and Max, to realise the truth about themselves and discover just what the enlightened mind can achieve.
Drawing from his many diverse and inspiring experiences, Michael Ignatius takes the reader to 1917 Fátima, Portugal in a deeply moving approach, experiencing all the intricacies of the people, places and events of the time. In reflection, he interjects his own lived current day experiences of pilgrimage in an effort to point out that we are all in the midst of a life-long pilgrimage on many levels—if we only take time and learn how to notice. The author’s combining of extensive, yet subtle, scriptural and religious meaning into the mix amplifies his approach as it connects the Fátima story and message to one’s lived faith experience in everyday life.
Myths, religions and archeological discoveries around the world discuss the presence of intelligent non-human beings who have interbred with humans creating hybrids. Tanis Helliwell offers convincing evidence about the existence of 22 different human-hybrids (elementals, angels, dolphins, giants, dragons, centaurs, pan and many others). People who discover they are hybrids report feeling more authentically themselves-more energized, powerful and self-loving-as a result of their discovery. AM I A HYBRID? If you answer "yes" to these statements, Hybrids will be of special interest to you: I often feel I don't fit in I am hypersensitive to violence I am deeply committed to helping the Earth I would describe myself as an independent thinker I follow my own inner guidance about rightness, even if it goes against the norm As with her ground-breaking work on elementals in the classic "Summer with the Leprechauns," Tanis is, with Hybrids, once again at the forefront of an entire new genre of investigation."
This book is the first to examine the depth, complexity and uniqueness of global Christian pilgrimage, travel and tourism, and how they manifest in terms of both supply and demand. It explores the places and spaces of production and consumption of this increasingly important tourism phenomenon. The volume considers the foundational elements of the attractiveness of places according to Christian thinking – spirit of place, scriptural connections, art and architecture, contrived/themed environments, programmed events, volunteer travel opportunities, and visiting local communities by way of solidarity tourism and mission work. It includes a wide range of examples from Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Africa, Latin America and North America and will be of interest to researchers and students in religious studies, tourism, pilgrimage studies, geography, anthropology and Christianity studies.

Desmond Hogan is an exciting literary talent to have come out of Ireland in the past half-century. This book reaffirms his stature, displaying anew a compressed lyricism, ferocity and sheer prismatic brilliance in these stories. His compelling tales of diaspora and exile, of subsumed identity and allurement, merge landscape with mindscape.
