Psychologists have long realized that the ancient Greeks had deep insights into the human psyche which, whether they realized it or not, they expressed through their mythology. Peter Lemesurier's new book offers a way of using these insights directly as a startling new method of self-healing and self-realization. In the full tradition of Joseph Campbell, James Hillman and Karl Kerenyi, it applies the dynamics of the Greek myths to quite overwhelming effect - as many who have used the approach report. Basically, the system is homeopathic, in that it encourages co-operation with each currently controlling god in turn (once identified via a simple diagnostic test) thus allowing that god to "move on". By the same token, therefore, it gives readers full permission - perhaps for the first time in their lives - to be who they really are, removing all the stultifying effects of chronic guilt about themselves. But first, discover your god...

Is getting a little less comfortable the key to living a happier, healthier life?
When journalist Scott Carney came across a picture of a man in his fifties sitting on a glacier in just his underwear, he assumed it must be a hoax. Dutch guru Wim Hof claimed he could control his body temperature using his mind and teach others to do the same. Sceptical, Carney signed up to Hof’s one-week course, not realising that it would be the start of a four-year journey to unlock his own evolutionary potential.
From hyperventilating in a Polish farmhouse to underwater weight training in California, and eventually climbing Mt Kilimanjaro wearing just shorts and running shoes, Carney travelled the world testing out unorthodox methods of body transformation and discovering the science behind them.
In What Doesn’t Kill Us he explains how getting a little less comfortable can help us to unlock our lost evolutionary strength.

Joseph Polansky is a leading US astrologer who has been practising astrology for over 20 years.
More than half of American adults and more than seventy-five percent of young Americans believe in intelligent extraterrestrial life. This level of belief rivals that of belief in God. American Cosmic examines the mechanisms at work behind the thriving belief system in extraterrestrial life, a system that is changing and even supplanting traditional religions. Over the course of a six-year ethnographic study, D.W. Pasulka interviewed successful and influential scientists, professionals, and Silicon Valley entrepreneurs who believe in extraterrestrial intelligence, thereby disproving the common misconception that only fringe members of society believe in UFOs. She argues that widespread belief in aliens is due to a number of factors including their ubiquity in modern media like The X-Files, which can influence memory, and the believability lent to that media by the search for planets that might support life. American Cosmic explores the intriguing question of how people interpret unexplainable experiences, and argues that the media is replacing religion as a cultural authority that offers believers answers about non-human intelligent life.
As our lives get busier, boundaries between work and leisure blur and we spend less time thinking about what we're putting out minds, bodies, and souls through.

The Wellbeing Book will demonstrate how we can interact with the world to lead a better life. The author provides 50 practical and uplifting ways to improve physical and mental wellbeing by focusing on the mind, body, and soul. In doing so, he helps us to hit the pause button and learn how to enhance our energy and build resilience, cultivate our emotional and physical wellbeing, manage stress and live a happier and more fulfilled life.

I will be giving this important book to everyone I know.' Jasmine Hemsley, author of The Art of Eating Well `Will makes meditation cool.

'A moving testimonial to the redemptive power of cooking. Risbridger knows that it offers not just solace but a map; cooking can save you. Generous, honest and uplifting. I wish I'd had this book when I was in my twenties' Diana Henry
Recipes that reveal the life-changing happiness of cooking
There are lots of ways to start a story, but this one begins with a chicken…
There was a time when, for Ella Risbridger, the world had become overwhelming. Sounds were too loud, colours were too bright, everyone moved too fast. One night she found herself lying on her kitchen floor, wondering if she would ever get up – and it was the thought of a chicken, of roasting it, and of eating it, that got her to her feet and made her want to be alive.
Midnight Chicken is a cookbook. Or, at least, you'll flick through these pages and find recipes so inviting that you will head straight for the kitchen: roast garlic and tomato soup, uplifting chilli-lemon spaghetti, charred leek lasagne, squash skillet pie, spicy fish finger sandwiches and burnt-butter brownies. It's the kind of cooking you can do a little bit drunk, that is probably better if you've got a bottle of wine open and a hunk of bread to mop up the sauce. But if you settle down and read it with a cup of tea (or a glass of that wine), you'll also discover that it's an annotated list of things worth living for – a manifesto of moments worth living for. This is a cookbook to make you fall in love with the world again.
The 260-day Tzolkin calendar was a gift of the prophetic Maya to the people of today. It is a tool to synchronise to the changing energies and transformation of 2012. In the Tzolkin calendar each of the 260 days has a specific energy attached to it. Each day has its own 'face', its identity or character, which influences its events, a person's luck at the moment, or even his fate. Visionary Jose Arguelles translated this old Tzolkin calendar to a world-wide usable13 Moon, or Dreamspell Calendar, which holds real meaning and which should replace our traditional calendar. The Tzolkin calendar helps us to re-align ourselves with the natural cycles of nature and time. In these hectic and stressful times, this ancient calendar can be a useful tool in guiding our day-to-day living in a fun and productive way. The 13 Moon Calendar even enables us to heal the past and positively influence the future. The diary is an easy-to-use day planner in which you instantly glance what day it is according to the Gregorian calendar, as well as the 13 Moon Calendar. You can learn about the day-energies and plan your activities accordingly. All 13 Moon tables are included. Naturally, it has all the features of a contemporary diary, including a moon planner, when-is-when calendar and menstrual cycle calendar. This diary is produced with loving care, in full colour, featuring beautiful illustrations and allowing space for note taking.

We all dream, and 98 per cent of us can recall our dreams the next morning. Even in today's modern age, it is human nature to wonder what they mean. Now, groundbreaking science is putting dreams at the forefront of new research into sleep, memory, the concept of self and human socialization. Once a subject of the New Age and spiritualism, the science of dreams is revealed to have a crucial role in the biology and neuroscience of our waking lives. In Why We Dream, Alice Robb, a leading American science journalist, will take readers on a journey to uncover why we dream, why dreaming matters, and how we can improve our dream life - and why we should. Through her encounters with scientists at the cutting edge of dream research, she reveals how: - Dreams can be powerful tools to help us process the pain of a relationship break-up, the grief of losing a loved one and the trauma after a dramatic event - Nightmares may be our body's warning system for physical and mental illness (including cancer, depression and Alzheimer's) - Athletes can improve their performance by dreaming about competing - Drug addicts who dream about drug-taking can dramatically speed up their recovery from addiction. Robb also uncovers the fascinating science behind lucid dreaming - when we enter a dream state with control over our actions, creating a limitless playground for our fantasies. And as one of only 10 per cent of people with the ability to lucid-dream, she is uniquely placed to teach us how to do it ourselves. With incredible new discoveries and stunning science, Why We Dream will give you dramatic insight into yourself and your body. You'll never think of dreams in the same way again.
