The pages of The Confession Album contain 100 questions. Your part is collecting the answers - whether from a loved one, or yourself - in the course of an evening, or over a lifetime. If you're answering for yourself, The Confession Album offers an opportunity to gain and share the solace of self-expression; a way to relay knowledge or impart wisdom; store a little data about what matters in the old-fashioned way, by putting pen to paper. If you're collecting someone else's answers - whether together in person or by inviting them to respond alone and share with you later - The Confession Album is above all an opportunity to bond. To lend your ears and give your love. The Confession Album might be used to mark a birthday or anniversary. As an activity to anchor a family trip or weekend with friends.

Vir baie uitdagings en vraagstukke van die moderne lewe kon die skrywer nie al die antwoorde in die Bybel kry nie. Sy besef dat die wereld waarin ons vandag leef, radikaal anders is as die wereld van ons oumagrootjies. Tong-in-die-kies vertrek sy op 'n spirituele reis wat by die Oerknal begin. Sy beleef die vorming van die aarde, die begin van lewe, evolusie, die ontstaan van Homo sapiens, en die ontstaan van die spirituele bewussyn van die mens. Op pad kom sy Zoroaster, die Boeddha, Jesus, Mohammed en Einstein tee. Haar reis na die dieper betekenis van die lewe is uiteindelik 'n intellektuele geskiedenis van die mensdom wat eindig by globalisering, relatiwiteitsteorie en kosmologie. Sy kom tot die ontdekking dat die simboliek van die Christendom behou moet word maar dat nuwe betekenis daaraan gegee moet word; en dat dit gedoen kan word deur onsself te leer ken.

Marcus Aurelius kan as 地 ware filosoof-koning beskou word. Ten spyte van sy roem en weelderige lewe aan die hof, het hy voortdurend gestreef na 地 eenvoudige lewe, innerlike vryheid en persoonlike spirituele groei. Sy Meditasies of Bepeinsinge wat tydens sy laaste lewensjare neergeskryf is, is in 12 boeke verdeel en is nie filosofiese teoriee nie, maar praktiese oefeninge om die filosofie in die leser se gedagtes en optrede te laat deurwerk. Hy besin oor die heelal en die mens as deel daarvan, die verantwoordelikhede van die mens as 地 sosiale wese, verdraagsaamheid teenoor alle mense, hoe om in harmonie met ander en in ooreenstemming met jou ware aard te leef, hoe om te aanvaar wat met jou gebeur, en uiteindelik ook die dood te aanvaar. Tydens Marcus se heerskappy is die Christene kwaai vervolg, maar tog het sy denke oor 地 ingetoe leefwyse wat nie deur drif nie, maar deur verantwoordelikheid en plig beheer word, 地 groot invloed op die Christendom uitgeoefen. Sy werk word vandag nog gelees en het in 地 era waarin waarde aan spirituele groei geheg word, nuwe betekenis gekry.
A GUIDE TO THE UNIQUE POWER OF VEDIC MEDITATION TO OVERCOME STRESS AND ANXIETY, HELPING US TO THRIVE. `Will's meditation is a game changer. If you want to understand meditation more deeply and how you can harness the benefits in the most profound ways possible, The Effortless Mind is where it's at. I will be giving this important book to everyone I know.' Jasmine Hemsley, author of The Art of Eating Well `Will makes meditation cool. Say hello to a clearer mind thanks to your new bulletproof technique to help you relax and unleash your best self.' Madeleine Shaw, author of Get The Glow Daily life can feel like a fast-paced treadmill, leaving little time to unwind, re-charge and do what brings us joy. Meditation is a powerful way to hit the pause button, increase your energy and start to enjoy life more. The Effortless Mind is renowned meditation teacher Will Williams's must-have guide for modern-day meditators. Suffering from chronic stress and insomnia, Will undertook years of research and training with leading experts from around the world, which led him to find the cure he was looking for in Vedic meditation. In The Effortless Mind, Will explains how his Vedic-inspired method of meditation has transformed the lives of his students - all of whom are busy people of all ages and all backgrounds. Their inspiring stories and the scientific research into meditation show the profound physical, mental and emotional benefits you can gain from such a simple daily practice, including more energy, better sleep, greater clarity, less anxiety and a happier outlook on life. More praise for The Effortless Mind: `Meditation can be a powerful tool in managing anxiety, stress and other common daily experiences that so many people seem to face and Vedic meditation with Will is one of the simplest forms of meditation there is, making it incredibly accessible for anyone to learn.' Annie Clarke, author of Mind Body Bowl `I learnt how to meditate with Will Williams two years ago and since then so many things have changed. I have a life-long tool that has brought me calm, clarity and increased creativity and allowed me to far more effectively weather the storms of everyday life. Will is the most generous, warm and gracious teacher.' Emine Rushton, Wellbeing Director, Psychologies `Within a few months of learning to meditate with Will, I realised I was starting to have so many ideas for songs and books, as well as helping me with a busy schedule of touring and being a dad.' Howard Donald, Take That `Vedic meditation is now part of my daily routine. It has been hugely beneficial in so many ways. Will is very supportive and nurturing and makes learning seem easy and fun. I feel extremely grateful this has come into my life.' Cressida Bonas, actress `Will's practical, non-woo-woo approach to meditation has enabled thousands of busy people to find a way to fit a regular practice into their lives.' Lesley Thomas, The Times
'An important message about the power of reconnecting with the primal self to achieve balance in the modern world. A fascinating read' - Megan Hine Nature is our greatest healer. It's time to start walking and reclaim the wildness in all of us. When did you last take a walk? Not a stroll to the shops, or to the pub, but a walk that got you energised, stimulated your senses, allowing you to de-stress? If the answer is that you'd love to walk, but don't have the time, there really are more reasons to get outside than you might think. When we walk we find the space to process our feelings and we begin to have the courage to be vulnerable and honest with ourselves. Walking awakens the intuition that helps us face up to our difficulties and walk alongside them, enabling us to find positive solutions to our problems. Our ancestors knew all about movement - they walked across the planet, understanding nature and learning to respect and work in harmony with it. Written by a London-based therapist, Walk with your Wolf is part memoir, part self-help and part reflection on the connection we must re-establish with our natural, intuitive selves if we are to live healthy, fulfilling lives. Offering practical advice and exercises on how to walk and think as a method of confronting difficult emotions, this book will allow you to reconnect with your intuition, confidence and power. 'Deftly blending science, his own narrative and his experience as a therapist, he is at our side as we find a way of engaging with and being healed by nature. Like the wolf in the book's title, we can reconnect with our own elemental lupine instincts which are so often repressed in our stressful and artificial world - both a wolf's wildness as well as its sociability and need to be part of a pack. Follow in Hoban's easy to apply footsteps and you will never walk alone again. - Rachel Kelly, bestselling author of Walking on Sunshine and The Happy Kitchen 'Jonathan Hoban challenges us to use nature as a setting for reconsidering our lives and our stresses. He asks us to 'walk alongside our difficulties' giving ourselves the physical and mental space to look at ourselves anew and to decide what we really need. For that commute to work, or indeed for that break on the park bench, I commend this book.' - Sir Ciaran Devane, CEO of the British Council

Sunday Times Bestseller From the author of the phenomenal multi-million copy bestseller The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down "Hearing the words 'be good to yourself first, then to others' was like being struck by lightning." Many of us respond to the pressures of life by turning inwards and ignoring problems, sometimes resulting in anxiety or depression. Others react by working harder at work, at school or at home, hoping that this will make ourselves and the people we love happier. But what if being yourself is enough? Just as we are advised on airplanes to take our own oxygen first before helping others, we must first be at peace with ourselves before we can be at peace with the world around us. In this beautiful follow-up to his international bestseller The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down, Buddhist monk Haemin Sunim turns his trademark wisdom and kindness to self-care, arguing that only by accepting yourself - and the flaws which make you who you are - can you have compassionate and fulfilling relationships with your partner, family and friends. "Even products labelled 'limited edition' are made on a production line with hundreds that are exactly the same. But there is only one you in the world." *** "Haemin writes beautifully and simply... these vital life lessons resonate deeply and easily" Miranda Hart "The world could surely use a little more love, a little more compassion, and a little more wisdom. In Love for Imperfect Things, Haemin Sunim shows us how to cultivate all three, and to find beauty in the most imperfect of things-including your very own self" Susan Cain, New York Times bestselling author of Quiet "Heartwarming, calming and simple. But also filled with wisdom and powerful truths that will teach us to love ourselves first in order to transform our relationships with our loved ones" Hector Garcia, author of IKIGAI - The Japanese secret to a long and happy life "A wonderful book to accompany The Things You Can See... page by page, he shows you how to reclaim your freedom and your life" Professor Mark Williams, author of the bestselling Mindfulness "A real treasure. It teaches us that compassion is at the heart of healing . . . starting with ourselves. I highly recommend this book" Christiane Northrup, MD, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom "You can be the most amazing human being in the world and everyone sees rays of light, love, and genius when they look at you, but if you yourself don't know it, all of that external admiration doesn't matter one bit. Haemin Sunim teaches you ways to love yourself first, instead of loving the idea of other people loving you. It makes a world of difference" Marc and Angel Chernoff, New York Times bestselling authors of Getting Back to Happy
