Everyday Wisdom -- A Spiritual Book of Days
Every day offers us incredible wisdom if only we can see the spiritual principles working behind the events and circumstances that areplaying out in our lives. Seeing those principles requires a daily practice that helps us look beneath the surface of our lives and encourages us to face the truth, even when it is difficult.
Everyday Wisdom is a tool that can help you understand your spiritual lessons as they unfold each day of your life. Used in conjunction with journaling, it gives you a simple method of introspection, of looking within your own heart and mind, and finding the wisdom and the guidance that abide there. This book can be used as a Spiritual Oracle in conjunction with Wisdom Cards, the companion card deck (see below). Click here to order the book for $13.95

The Great Way of All Beings: Renderings of Lao Tzu
Paul Ferrini's luminous rendering of Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching, one of the great spiritual works of all time. This volume also includes "River of Light," Paul's long poem inspired by Lao Tzu, using the verses of the the Tao Te Ching as a springboard to illuminate key spiritual concepts. This is spiritual poetry at its best. Paul describes it this way:
He (Lao Tzu) was my teacher because he rejected all outward authority. The God of this teaching was not to be found in scriptures or rituals, but in the hills and streams and in the tidewaters of the heart.
River of Light is the Tao that is written by my teacher's footsteps along the streambeds where we have walked together. It is not an attempt to translate the words that have been attributed to him, so much as an attempt to elucidate the awareness that I have always felt singing to me through those words.

Illuminations on the Road to Nowhere
There comes a time for all of us when the outer destinations no longer satisfy and we finally understand that the happiness we seek cannot be found outside of us. It must be found in our own hearts, on the other side of our pain.
This book makes it clear that we can no longer rely on outer teachers or teachings to find our spiritual identity. Nor can we find who we are in relationships where boundaries are blurred and one person makes decisions for another. If we want to be authentic, we can't allow anyone else to be an authority for us, nor can we allow ourselves to be an authority for another person. This provocative book challenges many of our basic assumptions about personal happiness and the meaning of our relationship with others and with God.

Unraveling the Mysteries of Sin, Guilt and Atonement
Adam and Eve were not just naughty, disobedient children. They were driven by a desire to create and express themselves.
As long as they remained in the Garden, they could not take the next step in their evolution. And so these two archetypal beings began a spiritual journey that would take them from sin to atonement, from ignorance to knowledge, from denial to responsibility. They would have to explore their darkness to find the light. They would have to become sinners to discover the blueprint for their redemption. They would have to experience the limits of their bodies, their minds and the three dimensional world to know that their true nature transcended all this. To become God, they had to first become human.
This book illuminates the great moral issues of sin and redemption. It examines the mechanism of guilt and its relationship to karma in a way that has never been done before. Written against the collective backdrop of the terrorist attacks on New York, the Enron debacle, and the pedophilia scandal of the Catholic Church, this insightful book is certain to become required reading in divinity schools across the country.
