Journey to Wholeness: A Guide to Inner Healing
ISBN: 0965151905

Healing Concepts Publishing. 1996

From the book: "Being whole means psychological well-being emanates from our very foundation, and allows us to radiate loving, creative, and healing energy in all parts of our lives. This book is about reclaiming this state of wellness. It can guide you on the path to the psychological and spiritual well-being you seek." Everyone can heal. Everyone can choose their destination and the quality of their journey. No matter how difficult your life has been up to this point, you have the capacity for change. Some of you may travel quickly, others may need a longer route, but each and every one of you can be successful. Healing is a rebirthing, where we shed the old skins, the old beliefs, the old fears and start new. It is about freeing ourselves from the trauma and wounds. All that we need is the desire, the commitment, and the courage. So often people carry shame and guilt about past errors or perhaps simply past breaks from convention. These feelings hold us back, keep us stuck. Ironically, it may be these "shameful" experiences were exactly what we needed to become fully "Ourselves" Perhaps without these "errors" we would lack some essential quality for our ultimate wholeness

Empowering The Spirit: A Process to Activate Your Soul Potential
ISBN: 0615699111

Healing Concepts Publishing. 2013

In the midst of great evolutionary change on our planet, there are large numbers of us who share a passion to live from the heart instead of from ego. We understand how crucial personal transformation is to our collective commitment to bring forth a New Earth based on love, cooperation, equality, peace and harmony. We work diligently on our spiritual development and personal healing. Yet many of us are still not expressing our soul’s full potential. Empowering the Spirit offers a unique process of self-inquiry to help with this important next step. Brimming with exercises and meditations, this book provides tools to activate deep levels of healing, self-awareness and higher states of consciousness. In addition it is filled with New Earth images, images that strongly evoke the spiritually-evolved world we are co-creating, to help us integrate these concepts more fully in our lives. In Part One, we are led through a deep internal journey where we are offered tools to understand and release fears of stepping into full power, strategies for self-observation and calming the ego, and ways to identify and heal chakra imbalances. We are given an in depth look at outmoded beliefs, both collective and individual, that create blocks to our full soul expression. Next we are guided to identify, understand and activate our pre-birth contracts and to deeply explore the multidimensional nature of our soul. In Part Two, we embark on an outer journey, weaving the activation and healing which occurred in Part One into our connections with others as we delve into the realm of relationships, families and communities and align them with New Earth principles to promote individual and planetary wellbeing. The process set forth in Empowering the Spirit comes from the author’s four decades of experience as a transpersonal psychotherapist and spiritual teacher. The exercises and meditations are unique and known for their transformational power. ENDORSEMENTS: NICKI SCULLy, author of Alchemical Healing: A Guide to Spiritual, Physical and Transformational Medicine and Planetary Healing: Spirit Medicine for Global Transformation says: “Empowering the Spirit is chock full of relevant information, insights that inspire, and tools and processes that accomplish their intentions… This book is an invaluable addition to your spiritual library.” LINDA STAR WOLF, author of Shamanic Breathwork, Visionary Shamanism and Spirit of the Wolf says: “Empowering the Spirit is ‘right on time’ for a world in creative chaos in need of great change…This book lives up to its name as a guiding light in a changing world.” JOHN HORNEKER, author of Quantum Transformation: A Guide to Becoming a Galactic Human says: “Empowering the Spirit is a book of inspiration… a vision of what life can become when we invite Spirit to infuse every breath of our human experience here on Earth.”
