When classical pianist Anna Goldsworthy falls pregnant with her first child, she is both excited and anxious about what lies ahead. Should she indulge her craving for sausage after sixteen years without meat? Will her birth plan involve Enya or hypnosis, or neither? And just how worried should she be about her baby falling into a composting toilet? This delightful memoir reveals the love that binds families together. Welcome to Your New Life captures the shock of leaving behind the life that you know and the thrill of starting the great adventure that is parenthood. ‘This book does what great literature should: it tries to get a grip on life – the making of it, the living-and-loving it, the leaving it. Goldsworthy’s writing is so beautiful, so laser-acute and funny and moving that you feel you are living more vividly. Welcome to Your New Life seems essential to me now. I laughed and I cried and I absolutely loved it.’ —Anna Funder ‘A keen-eyed, funny, tender, wonderful book.’ —Chloe Hooper ‘Warm, funny and candid.’ —Books+Publishing ‘... there are few books that have made me howl with laughter as this one has ... she has an exquisite ability to recast the banal into another sphere ... a deliciously subversive read.’ —Melbourne Review Anna Goldsworthy is the author of Piano Lessons and Welcome to Your New Life. Anna's writing has appeared in the Monthly, the Age, the Adelaide Review and Best Australian Essays.

We now live in the time of the Gaian hierophant. This is the one who reveals and shows us how to relate to the sacred aspects of Gaia, our planet. Who is this hierophant? Each of us, when we join the campaign with Gaia against the desecration of our natural environment. But first we have to discover what the Earth really is. The Earth's thousands of sacred sites hold a secret: they are functional parts of the planet's geomantic body, consciousness nodes in the Earth's subtle body. Each veils a Light temple, each once known widely and remembered in myth, and Welcome to Your Designer Planet! documents 165 different kinds. The Earth is not an accident of the cosmos, but was designed specifically for humans as an extended Mystery temple primed to support and enhance our greater awareness. And the designers intended that humans help maintain it. Want to help the ecosystem and modulate global warming and climate change? Plug yourself into the Earth's Light grid through your nearest sacred site and start helping. Earth Mysteries researcher Richard Leviton presents a working model of the Earth's geomantic reality based on 24 years of research. The world's myths are the doorway into this fantastic domain of the Earth's visionary geography, showing us where to go and what to do and even what kinds of spiritual beings to expect to see. The future of the Earth is in our hands. Here are some pages from its design manual showing us how to fine-tune our wonderful host planet.

A selection of short stories from a twentieth-century “American master” (Dan Cryer, Newsday). A contemporary of Ann Beattie and Tobias Wolff, Frederick Busch was a master craftsman of the form; his subjects were single-event moments in so-called ordinary life. The stories in this volume, selected by Pulitzer Prize winner Elizabeth Strout, are tales of families trying to heal their wounds, save their marriages, and rescue their children. In "Ralph the Duck," a security guard struggles to hang on to his marriage. In "Name the Name," a traveling teacher attends to students outside the school, including his own son, locked in a country jail. In Busch's work, we are reminded that we have no idea what goes on behind closed doors or in the mind of another. In the words of Raymond Carver, "With astonishing felicity of detail, Busch presents us with a world where real things are at stake—and sometimes, as in the real world, everything is risked." From his first volume, Hardwater Country (1974), to his most recent, Rescue Missions (2006), this volume selects thirty stories from an "American master" (Dan Cryer, Newsday), showcasing a body of work that is sure to shape American fiction for generations to come.

“Whether or not you believe that psychics are real is not the point of this book,” writes Clifton. “Obviously there is ongoing appeal for such things, or God’s Word would not keep warning against them. The point of my book is to show triumph over sin and darkness.” The former professional psychic, then known as Sandra McNeil, reveals the true nature of New Age thought and practices and how God opened her eyes to deception and set her free. She presents practical insight for tactful dialogue with individuals caught in the web of such beliefs, as well as tips for intercessory prayer. The inclusion of prayer strategies and discussion questions makes From New Age to New Life both theological and practical. With great experience as an author and editor, as well as a doctorate of ministry from Oral Roberts University, Clifton does an excellent job of telling her story in five significant parts: “My Journey,” “Reflections,” “What Can Be Done?” “Prayer Strategies,” and “Talking It Over.” Like sharing snapshots from a trip, she also includes distinct scenes from her life. Each is followed by reflection, in which she looks back on her experiences or thoughts with theological and biblical perspectives. In the process, she addresses how to help lost people out of the occult and New Age. Readers of this wonderfully written book will come away feeling warm inside knowing good still comes out on top.
